Congress intends to find out whether the United States is get ting a “Navy second to none’’ with a minimum of delay. As Europe’s war neared an “all out’.’ stage, the House Naval Com mittee put at the top of its sched ule a thoroughgoing survey of the warship building and fleet aviation programs. Announcing hearings would start next week, Chairman Vinson said last night the purpose of the ex traordinary inquiry was to make sure the Nation’s sea forces would be “dominant” on the oceans and in the air over them. There were signs, he continued, that the fleet building program was not proceeding as rapidly as it should, despite the fact that Con gress had voted every dollar re quested by the Navy. The advisability of putting the fleet construction on a 24-hour-a day footing would be considered, he said. The committee, he added, also would seek information on whether the Walsh-Healey Act and other laws governing wages and hours of men employed on Government con tracts were hampering speedy naval expansion. Shortage of Instructors. The Senate's attention was di rected to the Army’s air force by Senator Lodge, Republican, of Massachusetts, who said the short age of flying instructors threatened to become a “serious bottleneck” in the country’s plans for aerial de fense Testimony by Air Corps officers before a Military Appropriations Subcommittee, he said, indicated the Army had available only 300 competent instructors to train pilots Each instructor, it was said*, could handly only five pupils. “Apparently we can get the planes that we need for our defense force,” Senator Lodge observed, “but I think we ought to have a larger standing force of pilots. Every bit of testimony before the committee and all of the reports coming from Europe are convincing that military pilots cannot be improvised on short notice.” Senator Thomas, Democrat, of Oklahoma said Germany’s invasion of Holland and Belgium “should make us take the same steps to per fect our military machine as if we had already declared war.” Senator Thomas, chairman of an Appropriations Subcommittee han dling army funds, said the United States should proceed as soon as pos sible to establish a fully equipped army of 400,000 men. Only 75,000 now are fully equipped, he said. “Germany is making a drive to end the war before her enemies are fully prepared,” Senator Thomas de clared. “If she had struck sooner, she would have had a better chance of winning than she has now.” Senator Nye, Republican, of North Dakota, critic of administration for eign policies, said the invasion of the low countries was “no great surprise, but probably means that the battle ground for beginning of the real war has been set.” “It’s pretty much the same old in flUmnrtatn MILLER.

J 1 Netherlands Informs Nazis Charges of Pacts Are False Minister to U. S. Expresses Country's 'Indignation' in Broadcast ■r the Associated Press. NEW YORK. May 10.—The Neth erlands “with Indignation" has in formed Germany that there is ab solutely no truth to the charge that she “has entered into any agree ment whatsoever—of an inimical nature—with any foreign power and which would have been aimed against Germany.” Speaking over an N. B. C. net work, Dr. Alexander Loudon, the Netherlands Minister to the United States, said he had talked with the Foreign Office at The Hague by tele phone and received the following statement from the Minister of Foreign Affairs which “I read to you as I got it over the oceanic phone: " ‘With indignation, our majesty’s government refutes the allegation and insinuations that the Dutch government had entered into any agreement whatsoever—of an in imical nature—with any foreign power and which would have been aimed against Germany.’ “I continue with the Foreign Min ister’s statement: “‘Due to this unprecedented at tack without any warning on the part of the German government, the Netherlands government considers herself at war with the German Reich.’ “My foreign minister also told me that a division of Nazi parachute troops have landed in the province of Holland, but are meeting with stubborn and dogged resistance by the Dutch 1st Army Corps. At sev eral points, our army has the situa tion well in hand. “Her majesty the Queen has met the situation with remarkable forti tude and calm.” Dr. Loudon said it was two hours after the German invasion began that the German Minister to the Netherlands handed his government the Nazi declaration read over the air in Berlin. “Various bombardments are still underway,” he continued, “but as far as we know they were aimed at military objectives. . "This attack on the Netherlands is without example in the world’s history. We had not been warned. "We didn’t even receive an ulti matum.” Dr. Loudon said that in invading his country “Germany has outdone itself once again as a civilized na tion.” "There is nothing much to say,’ the weary Minister added. “The American public is intelligent enough to draw its own conclusions and will not be taken in by the usual German lies and these cowardly means of warfare.” battleground of the ages and once more emphasized how lucky this country is,” Senator Nye said. Legislation Progresses. The move to review the operation of present naval building programs coincided with the progress of leg islation authorizing an additional 11 per cent expansion of the fleet at an estimated cost of $655,000,000. Unanimously, the Senate Naval Committee recommended yesterday that the Senate pass the House-ap proved bill authorizing construction of 19 battle craft and 21 auxiliaries. Recognizing the possibility that developments in the European war may dictate drastic changes in the design of fighting ships, the Senate committee rejected. 5 to 3. a pro posal to make the 19 new warships a permanent addition to the fleet—a proposal that would permit the Navy to replace them without further per mission when they wore out. Chair man Walsh said a majority felt im provements might be so marked in the next few years that the Navy ought to consult Congress again before it replaced any of the ships. On the other hand, committee members voted to give the Navy a freer rein in shifting about the 160, 000 tons of combat ship construction contemplated under the measure so that it could build larger and more heavily armored plane carriers and cruisers if the need for them became apparent. A limitation of 33.400 tons was placed on such shifts, instead of the 16,700-ton limit voted by the House. As a further aid in speeding tech nical developments. Senator Gerry, Democrat, of Rhode Island, won ap proval of an amendment providing for the creation of a naval consult ing board of seven members. These members, chosen by ^he President from among leaders in private in dustry, science and research, wmild consult with naval experts *on scientific improvements and ad vances in design. No funds are provided in the pend ing bill, but Navy leaders said they expected to ask Congress at its present session for $46,000,000 to expand shipbuilding plants and start work on some of the vessels. Archbishop Curley Attacks Birth Control And Labor Strikes $2,000 Made Available For Scholarship Financing in Capital Birth control was assailed as a "disease that will wreck a nation” by the Most Rev. Michael J. Curley, Archbishop of Baltimore and Wash ington, last night at his annual meeting with the Curley Club of Washington. More than 200 per sons attended the meeting at the Continental Hotel. "England today is crying for her manhood,” he said. "Prance is of fering prizes to mothers. Wherever birth control is practiced, divine maledictions fall upon it. “Times are serious. This Nation is not as safe as you might think. War can destroy a nation, disease can wreck a nation, too, and here with our curse of divorce, race sui cides, growing number of youths in Jail, subversive Communistic activ ltles and birth control, the Nation stands in great peril of also being destroyed.*’ .The archbishop denounced strikes, asserting that they “do not better living conditions.” "Srtikes," he added, “only tend to tear the people limb from limb, to lead them to murder. The only solution to the labor problem is to follow the encyclical of Pius XI on the rights of labor.” The club presented the arch bishop with a check for $1,000 for a scholarship fund, but he returned the check along with an additional $1,000 for financing scholarships in the archdiocese of Washington. This $2,000, according to the Rev. Prancls J. Kelly, spiritual director, will pro vide six local boys and girls with free four-year scholarships at Catho lic high schools. James J. Corbett, president of the club, presided, and Miss Dorothy Barrett, past president, was in charge of entertainment.
