AMERICAN ARMY AND NAVY
SHOULD DRAW LESSONS
FROM WAR IN EUROPE
MORE MEN NEEDED
Secretaries Garrison and Daniels!
Preparing Annual Reports to
Submit to Congress.
I WASHINGTON, Nov. G.-Secretaries
Garrison and Daniels in their forth
coming annual reports will lay before
CongreBB tho lessons they believe thc
American army and navy should draw
from the war in Europe. No extraord
inary expenditures will be asked, but
methods obtaining a mobile and ade
quate army and a powerful and effi
cient fleet will be discussed In great j
. Secretary Garrison will emphasize
the necessity for a definite, permanent
military policy. Secretary Daniels will
recommend two battleships but prob
ably will ask for authority to expend
a lump Sum for submarines.
' The work of submarines in tho Eu
ropean war hes recalled that last con
gress appropriated moro than $4,000,- !
?0.0 for submarines and specified that j
??e should be a sea-going vessel, prac
tically twice the size of these used , in
coast patrol. Such submarines accord
ing to naval officers, will he the most
powerful in the world, able to accom
pany, the fleet anywhere. European
submarines have been able to make]
only comparatively short voyages
from their bases.
There ts every likelihood that Secre
tary Daniels will ask for a second |
L-ubmarlno of tho sea-going type and
the usual number a oven or eight smal
ler submarines for coart and harbor
defense. While submarines have at
. traded mont attention, naval strate
gists do not believe tuero should bel
any .change in the permanent plans |
of tho general board for two battle
ii 1)3 a year and a proportionate mini
lr of auxiliaries and submarines.
,,\The United States already has moro
e il hm ar In cs than Germany and Japan,
and air. ?anleiB and the general board
hoi love in the > battleship unit ns the
necessary line along which tho navy
. Should ; advance. Naval men concede,
however,-that Congress will consider
Using the appropriation usually made
for.on o battleship for building 28 new
submarines. > ?
One of the chief recommendations
the navy will make will be an Increase

think more of them would come out
etrongly and uncompromisingly for
tho right; and, on the other band, if
they always felt sure of the sympathy
and cooperation of tho best citizens,
they would be encouraged to do their
very best He who is truly patriotic is
not he alone who is ready to dio for
his country, but primarily and su

Various estimates have been placed
on the amount of-cotton that can be

Insurance experts in Columbia declare
tbat not more than 6,000 bales can be

There has been no decrease in the

are in great need of seed just now.

Northern Banks Subscribe
Four-Fifths of Their Share
Secretary McAdoo Announces That $80,000,000 Had Been Raised
and the Remaining $20,000,000 of the $135,000,000 Cotton
Loan Fund to Be Raised in the North Was in Sight.
(By Associated Press.)
WASHINGTON, Nov. 6.-Pour-fifths
of the share of northern bank* in the
$185,000,000 cotton loan fund has boen
subscribed, and unless bankers bold
back for fear that consummation of
the loan plan will be held in violation
of the Sherman anti-trust law, the
remainder soon will be forthcoming.
Secretary McAdoo announced today
that $80,000,000 had been raised among
northern bankers, and that the re
maining $20,000,000 to be subscribed
in the North was in sight At the
same time it beeame known that cer
tain bankers who had been counted
on bud become reluctant to enter tho
plan unless assured that that Ute
method by which the loan is being
raised does not violate the Sherman
Such a fear was characterized by
Mr. McAdoo as pure "buncombe." lt
is kuown, however, that the objec
tion was considered by some authori
ties sufficiently serious to bring a re
quest for an opinion from Attorney
General Gregory as to the plan's le
gality. Distrust has come largely
from New Et t;land.
It was reported tonight that when
the fund first was discussed this
question was raised, and that a repre
sentative of the reserve board con
sulted department of Justice officials.
At that time it was the opinion of
the official consulted that thei- was
no violation of the law, that the fund
was to be raised voluntarily and that
its purpose was not td restrain com
petition or reise prices, but to ex
tend aid in making loans to produc
That opinion, though not from the
attorney general, was sufficient for
most of those asked to contribute. It
failed, however, to convince the New
Englanders. Their contributions,
probably necessary to complete suc
cess of the plan, are understood to
have been pledged contingent upon a
favorable opinion by Attorney Gener
al Gregory himself. 1
Lawyers outside the treasury de
partment are for the most part of the
view that no violation of the Sher
man law can result. It generally
was predicted tonight that that view
would be concurred in by Mr.. Greg
ory, and that complete success of the
plan will be announced shortly.
Attorney General Gregory and Sec
retary McAdoo conferred for an hour
tonight and later it was reported that
Mr. Gregory had upheld his subordi
nates tn the opinion that the loan
plan could not be construed to be in
violation of the Sherman, act or any
other law. No announcement waa
made, however, and although thc at
torney general carried P. memoran
dum to the treasury, lt was said no
written opinion had been prepared.
