entitled ‘'The Peril of Narcotics—

Representative Fred A. Britten
Claims Matter of Paramount
Reintroducing today his bill pro
viding for funds for gun elevation on
thirteen battleships, Representative
Fred A. Britten of Illinois, ranking
Republican on the House naval af
fairs committee, declared his inten
tion to “press the State Department
for an immediate interpretation” of
the Washington arms conference
treaty on this point. An amendment
to the naval construction bill to ac
complish gun elevation was rejected
by the House on the grounds that
it would violate the treaty.
"I regard the elevation of grins on
our first-line ships of greater im
portance than any other moderniza
tion possible,” said Representative
Britten, “and if it is not done, we
might just as well admit to the
American people that we were bun
coed in the Washington armament
conference, and that our Navy will
not reach its intended ratio until our
older ships have been scrapped and
replaced by new ones provided for
under the treaty.
“Eight of our eighteen ships have
slower speed and shorter range than
anything in the British or Japanese.
“A simple change In gun elevations
to 30 degrees, will Instantly make
powerful hitters out of present
“America demands a Navy equal to
the best, and if the treaty of equali
zation is in fact a delusion, we might
just as well know all about it with
out further Inatdnoos diplomacy.
“1 hope to get a favorable report
from the Secretary of the Navy, and
will press the State Department for
an immediate interpretation of the
treaty on this point.”

When Mrs. Joyce O'Keefe, who had
met a violent death at the hands of
one of her lodgers in London, was
buried recently, thousands of persons
lined the streets and sidewalks out
of morbid curiosity, but there was

They were met at Georgia avenue
and Emerson street by Policemen
Denton and McKsever, just after they
had missed a southbound street car.
The policemen stopped the two men
and proceeded to question then, hard

had figured in the escape, and sud

the policemen.
One of them, who proved to he

after a pursuit of three blocks, but
MoKeever was unable to overtake
O’Neal. Phillips was locked up at
the tenth precinct police station for
the military authorities and for in

told him to leave Rock Creek Park.
Stanton was about to place the men
under arrest, It is stated, when one
of them pointed a weapon at him and
demanded his ammunition. A mes

was telephoned the several police sta

which would authorize annual ap

development, improvement and main
Representative Cramton pointed
out that “this university is perform
ing a very important and effective
work of a truly national character.
The limited supervision by the
bureau of education which I propose
will be helpful.” Representative
Cramton said. "The appointment of
the trustees by the President is a de
served recognition of the institution
and is further desirable because of
the federal contribution which the
bill authorizes. That authorization
is of real importance, the continued
welfare of the institution being often
menaced by points of order, the ap
propriations which have been made
annually for forty years or more toe
