Swanson Holds Private Ves sels Essential in Na tional Emergency. By the Associated Press. The Navy, with new, fleet-strength ening ships under construction, sought yesterday to further multiply the sea force upon which it might call in time of war by asking the right to conscript all private vessels for naval auxiliaries. Secretary Swanson wrote Chairman Vinson, Democrat, of Georgia, of the House Naval Committee that “the prompt procurement for use as naval auxiliaries of a large number of pri vately owned or operated ships at the outset of war, or when a national emergency is imminent, is essential to the national defense." The Government could take over only a limited number of ships under present law. These include those having mail contracts, those pur chased, leased or chartered from the United States Shipping Board and those which obtained Federal con struction loans which have not been paid. “Under present laws the number of vessels of the necessary types which may be taken prior to the commence ment of the hostilities do not meet the Nation's requirements,” Swanson wrote. "The Navy Department believes that this legislation is absolutely es sential for the successful operation of its plans for the national defense and recommends it to the Congress for enactment into law.” Similar proposals have come from the department periodically, the last one in October. The Navy Secretary said the Commerce Department fa vored the legislation. -• Elections to Be Discussed. Frederick B. Weimer. assistant so licitor.
