Proposal Wins Support of
Senate Foes of Big
Navy Bill.
Mf th« Associated Press.
Senate foes of the administration’s
naval expansion bill threw their sup
port today to a proposal to require the
Oovemment to manufacture Its own
armaments.
Both sponsors and opponents of the
$1,156,000,000 measure said Senate de
bate probably would continue another
week. Speechmaking was being car
ried on largely by opponents.
Senator Nye, Republican, of North
Dakota, who began a fight against the
House-approved bill yesterday, said
Government production of war sup- 1
plies and weapons could be established
at a cost of only $42,000,000.
“That would remove the pressure
occasioned by the desire for the profit
that Is available through preparedness
programs and armament races.” Sen
ator Nye said. ”It would aid materially
in taking the United States out of
armament races and keep us interested
only in maintaining national defense.” j
Walsh Opposes Plan.
Senator Nye said he might offer the .
proposal, originally put forward by his !
Munitions Committee, as an amend- |
ment to the bill. Should this fail, he
said he probably would urge return of
the bill to committee.
Chairman Walsh, Democrat, of
Massachusetts of the Naval Committee I
said he would oppose Senator Nye’s
proposal because he did not believe it
should be attached to the naval meas
ure as a "rider.”
“There is no doubt that this bill will
pass in subs!antially Its present form,”
Senator Walsh said.
In an effort to save time, he said,
supporters of the bill will cut their
talks short. He asked Senator Bark
ley of Kentucky, the Democratic lead
er, to call a session Saturday, when
the chamber usually is in recess.
Senator Nye said that between 15
and 20 opponents still wish to make
speeches. During debate yesterday
Senator Nye contended that no com- i
bination of enemies could “even
threaten” to invade the United States
at present.
Denies Navy Impregnable.
From Senator Walsh then came a :
statement that a combination of either
Germany and Japan or Russia and
Japan could develop sufficient sea
power to destroy the existing American
Navy.
Senator Walsh's assertion was
termed “absurd” by Senator Lunrieen, i
Farmer-Labor, of Minnesota. The lat
ter contended the regular appropria
tion bill, already approved by the 1
Senate, was adequate to provide a
defensive force for the area bounded
by the Aleutian Islands, Hawaii, the
Canal Zone, the Virgin Islands and
the northern coast of Maine.
$53,472 OBTAINED
IN BOYS’ CLUB DRIVE

Three Day* Left to Bring Total
to $75,000 Quota—Federal
Workers Give $3,692.
More than two-thirds of the goal
had been attained today as the $75,000
campaign of the Boys’ Club of Metro- j
politan Police entered the home
stretch.
With three days to go. volunteer j
workers last night reported contribu
tions sufficient to bring the total to
date to $53,472.77, Maj. Robert A.
McClure, U. S. A., vice president In
charge of club membership, an
nounced.
As far as public solicitation is con
cerned, the campaign will close Satur
day, Maj. McClure said. However, this
does not affect the forthcoming
“Dance of the States" sponsored by
Radio Announcer Gordon Hittenmark
at the Willard Hotel, May 16.
Proceeds from the continuous dance :
program will go toward erecting the
new recreation hall, to be known as
the Hall of the States, at Camp Er
nest W. Brown, summer camp of the
Club, at Scotland. Md.
J. Leighton Cornwell, chairman of
the government units of the cam
paign. said Federal departments and
bureaus had contributed *3.692 69 of
the total amount reported yesterday. |
A last-minute appeal, he said, was
sent to all volunteer campaign work
ers in the Government, urging in
creased contributions to bring the !
final figure close to the *25,000 quota
originally set for this division.
BLADENSBURG AREA SITE
IS URGED FOR AIRPORT
Representative Gambrill. Democrat, j
of Maryland, yesterday was urged by
a delegation headed by Col. Clarence i
Chamberlin, famous trans-Atlantic
flyer, to aid in a movement to locate j
the proposed Washington airport on a
Bite in Prince Georges County Md., in
vicinity of the Bladensburg High
School.
Mr. Gambrill declined on the ground
he is maintaining a neutral position ,
In the airport controversy because
several other proposed sites are in his
district—one at Camp Spirngs, an
other at College Park and a third at
Suitland. He said, however, he would
urge Chairman Lanham of the House
Public Buildings and Grounds Com
mittee to give the delegation a hear
ing when it again considers the alr
port problem,
