The condition of the hoie was such
that Hipel drove into New llrunswuk

hall was packed with callers, includ

varying requests, such as appeals for

almost unapproachable and tat up

He told mo he had slept his usual

thinner and slightly more tired than

He expects to talk for an hour and
a half, and, acting on advice, he has
decided to delete from his speech a
long tale of llgures and statistics
proving Germany's lack of good faith
in connection with the treaty. He
will, however, head these later, prob
ably at Boston.
To-night he Intends talking practi
cally extemporaneously. He looks
upon it as the second greatest mo

given to his oration In the Chamber of
Deputies four years ago announcing
He Intends stressing heavily what
he considers to bo tho advent of a
new triple alliance aimed against the
Allied and associated powers and con

LAUSANNK, Nov. 21 (Associated
Press). Richard Washburn Child,
American Ambassador to Italy, ex
plained at the plenlary session of the
Near East Peace Conference to-day
the position of the observers for the
United States.
America, he said, was much Inter

and its observers would attend the
meetings and Join In tho discussions,
but were not authorized to be mem
bers of commissions, to sign reports,
or to vote on tho decisions.
America's participation in the I,au
sanno conference Is hailed with grati
fication by the Italian Government
and people. Premier Mussolini said to
day. "American interest In Europe is
necessary to the peace of the world,"
he said, "and I believe this Inaugura

tho Near Eastern Conference Is a pre
cursor to still further and larger par
ticipation." Asked concerning the relations be

and the Vatican. Slussollni answered:
"I am religious. I think religion is the
great fundamental, moral force in the
life of the people and I am hostile
to everything that savors of tho athe

"Catholicism is a wonderful world

Question Can No Longer Be Ignored, He Says,
and Pnly Three Courses Are Open to Them.
Constructive, Obstructive or Destructive
Choice Inevitable.
Pleads With Members to Forget Local Politics
and Remember That Subsidy Is Vital to All
Parts of Land Commercial Supremacy
Affects All, and Measure Is for Economy.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 21. In a fighting message President Harding to
day dnrod tho ioes of tho Administration Ship Subsidy Bill to assume the
responsibility for defeating It.
Declaring that no proposition placed before Congress ever met "a
moro resoluta hostility," tho President, In a monsago dellvcrod 'in pet sou
to the extraordinary session of Congress, challenged his oppononta to meet
tho Issue fairly.
Tho President devoted virtually alt of his message to a vigorous ad
vocacy of tbo subsidy, mentioning only ono other national problem addi
tional relief for agriculture. This and other questions will he dealt with
in his message to tho regular session, which will meet on Cec. 4.
"This problem cannot longer he lgnorod," aald Mr. Harding. "Its at
tempted solution cannot longer be postponed. Tho failure ot Congress to
act decisively will bo no less disastrous than adverso action."
Carrying the fight with aggressiveness to tho enemy's camp, Mr. Hard
ing said he challenged "overy insinuation of fnvorcd interests nnd the en
richment of tho special few at tho expense of the public Treasury. I am,
first of all, appealing to save tho Treasury,"
In a fervent plea that America. 1 "
again be raised to a position of cml
ntneo among the maritime nations of
tho world, and striking directly at
tho opposition, tho President said one
of three courses Is open:
"Tbo flrrt Is constructive enact
the pending bill, under which, I firm
ly believe, nn American morcliant
marine, privately owned and privately
operated, but serving nil tbo people
and always avallablo to tho Govern
ment In any cmergoncy, may be es
tablished and maintained," he said.
"Tho second Is obstructive con
tinue Government operation and at
tending Government losses, and dis
courage private enter, rlso by Govern
ment competition, under which losses
are met by tho Public Treasury, nnd
wltr.e the cuntlnu .. hsc mid de
terioration until tho colossal failure
ends In sheer exhaustion.
"The third In destructive Involving,
tho sacrifice of our ships abroad o
tho scrapping nf them at home, tno
surrender of our aspirations and t.
confession of our Impotenco to tho
world In general and our humiliation
before the competing world In par.
"A choice among tho three Is in
ovltablo. It. Is unbellevnblo that th
American people or the Congr.'ss
which expresses their power' will con
sent to surrender nnd destruction. It
is equally unbelievable that our people
and tho Congress which translates
their wishes Into action will longer
sustain a progrum of obstruction and
attending losses to tho Treasury."
Mr. Harding said tho bill was not
a subsidy, but "Government aid," In
the same sense as the Government
provides aid in building Inland water
ways and Improving roadH to aid In
the growth of commerce. Tho Presi
dent emphatically declared that since
tho Government nlds Industry by
tariffs, and reclamation, water power
development, agtlculturc and mar
keting by other legislation, It should
not hesitate to aid shipping.
