RESULT IN CLASH
Fixed Policy to Strengthen Na
tion's Sea Power Will Be
Sought at Bally.
WuRhing'on, April 1 " . Three treat
questions of r.ava! policy will receive
attention at the convention of the
Nvy league of t'u United States,
hich will open next Thursday in
Washington. Captain John Hood, U.
S. X.. lately commander of the dread
nought Delaware, will start the con
troversial program with a paper en
tit ied "Wanted A Naval Policy.-'
The navy department and the Navy
league long have urged the adoption
of a definite policy for the navy. The
metbod in operation is that of appro
priating for the navy on a different
basis every year, which makes impos
sible a policy looking to the develop
ment of a cavr of any given size in
any given time.
The Cn'.ted States is the only firft
class power that dies not lay do'wn a
raval policy for a period of years and
follow it. s
Another eutject to be considered ii
that of a "council of national de
fense." The idea of a council for national
defense is that an efficient board
fhouid be organized to formulate na
tional policies and furnish scientific
information and advice for co-gress
that should lead that body to settle
these questions on the grounds of na
tional welfare rather than political ex
pediency or patronage.
The navy department for instance,
in the opinion of naval students, main
tains a great number of navy yards
that are in no way necessary to the
efficiency cf the navy. Yet congres3
experienced great difficulty in aban
doning any o: those navy yards te
Ciusc lie igniters Ircm the 6'-uea af
fected pro'ett so lustily. !
"Var department experts Lave long
urged the abandonment of a great
number of &rmy pos's and 'he concen
tration of ihe army m a few larger'
posts. This reform has also been dif
fcult, because citizens of the states

Plicae Ncria ClSO-1.
would be called on to handle such
questions as the abandonment of un
necessary navy yards and army posts.
Congress would be expected to follow
its reeommendat ons.
A third question on which 'he fcel
ins is even more intense than on either
of these is the question of the basis
on which naval officers should be pro
moted. The policy followed by the
I'nited States has been that of grant
ing promotions almost entirely cn the
lsiE of seniority in the service. Cn
d.r this system every man in the ser
vi"e is steadily advanced almost with
out regard to any special qualifica
tions of fitness.
Aside from the policy of promotion
ty seniority there are two substitute
theories which have, strong backing.
Arguments in favor of these will be
presented at the convention
The first of thew policies j8 based
on a further development of the
"plucking board." I'c advocates t;rge
that 'he board should carry its activ
ities to such a point as to remove fro -a
the navy every officer who does not
demonstrate his eminent fitness fcr
work in the higher grade...
