Measures Regarding Ves
sels On High Seas Waiv
ed By House Body
WASHINGTON, March 8 — (TP)—
The House Merchant Marine Com
mittee today reluctantly approved
waiving ship safety requirements
for another year but said “we
were just plain lucky that no dis
aster has occurred so far.”
In a formal report the commit
tee said it was “extremely re
luctant” to request continuance of
the Coast Guard’s authority to al
low passenger ships to ply the
seas in violation or normal peace
time safety rules.
The legislation approved by the
committee is to come before the
house next week. It was requested
by President Truman.
Its necessity, the committee
said, stems from “the situation
facing the American Merchant
Marine today and its relation to
our commitments aboard.”
“At the present time,” the com
mittee noted, “the privately oper
ated American Merchant Marine
is in a period of transition be
tween its wartime activities and
its peacetime competition with
the ships of other maritime na
if our ships were withdrawn j
from world passenger trade be
cause certain safety standerds i
could not be waived, our future
competitive position in the world j
shipping picture would be irrevoc
ably damaged.”
Even after safety waivers are
granted. the committee said.
American ships are substantially j
safer than those of other nations. i
With the exception of the Ameri
ca. several grace line ships oper
ating in the South American trade,
and a number of passenger vessels ;
operated by the United States
lines, the committee declared.
! “practically no American ship
now being used to carry passen
gers complies with the safety j
standards prescribed by existing!
statute and regulation.”
The British Queen Elizabeth and
Queen Mary, the committee add
I ed, “do not comply with the high
! American safety standerds.”
The U. S. Army quartermaster
j corps has designed a fiber-glass
j lined parka which keeps its wear- .
ers warm in temperatures ranging i
down to 40 below zero.
