Washington, 1>. C., March 5. (
Xaval officers say the recently _s- '
| tablished international naval ratio ot :
i 5-."i-3 is being reversed by the atli'iid* j
of Congress so far as America is con
, cerned, and army experts declare that j
although the conference set no limit {
I on luiul armaments. Congress seems !
j determined to cut appropriations to a
figure where even the upkeep of the i
home stations would be impossible. '
President Harding is quoted a-> say- !
ins he is sure Congress will not make !
jit impossible for ships of the fleet to
j operate, or skeletonize the army. Tie
has advocated a force of not less than
130,000 men in the army, and not less j
j than SO.000 in the navy.
Secretaries Weeks and Denby arc less
j .'anguine as to the intentions of Con- ;
gross and especially the House Ap- j
1 propriations Committee. .Secretary j
| Weeks recently declared: "X have had |
[ my say. It is not my army, hut the j
j peoples. If they want to make the cut, j
j they have a right to do so. Congress, it !
! was stated by Secretary Weeks, would j
i vote a big cut in funds, but probably |
! would oppose the abandonment of fortn !
j and stations in their individual districts. I
D?nl?y U .Slttlnu Tight.
After paring his original estimates
for 1923 to the bone. Secretary Denby
is "sitting tight." It is known he has
reduced naval expenditures, curtailed j
operation.! to bare necessities and con- j
served his personnel to the maximum j
limit of efficiency. He says the only '
j one tiling left for him to do Is to anchor
I the fleets. Saturday he made his final
| cut by laying up fifty more destroyers
and fifty-one auxiliary craft, the last
! possible move toward economy unless
oil anchors arc ?et go.
"The power of the House Appropria
tions Committee is so arbitrary to-day
as to make former Speaker Cannon's
alleged reign of 'czarism' a poor imita
tion of power," it was said by one Gov
ernment official.
So far, the plans of Congress as an
noim?..i Indicate that n reduction of
approximately S53.000.000 will be made
In the army estimates of $363,000,000,
the budget figures for the n>\t fiscal
year, and a personnel cut from the pres
ent strength of 137,000 men to 115,000,
with 11,000 officers instead of 13,000.
Even the benefit of a lump sum ap
propriation has beep denied to the War
Department which would have enabled
the Secretary to allot the funds with a
view to economy and necessity.
This attitude on the part of Congress, '
Secretary Weeks indicates, will nece>si- |
j late the abandonment of one-third of i
I tin; present army posts, forts, flying7
! fields and training camps, it being im- ;
j possible with only 100,000 men in the J
1 effective army to man '>!>0 posts and;
1 stations here and in the Islund*. A re
duction of 22.000 men and 1.000 officers '
would make the problem mathematkallv '
j impossible, he says. In this he Is
j backed by Gen. Pershing, who advocates |
I an army of neatly the present strength, '
but recommends weeding out at the top !
Defense 1'oats Must (.<>.
H is estimated by army officers that
uiyder such limited funds and personnel
a* Congiess aims to grant, only a few
of the important coast defense posts
could be manned : arsenals would have
to be consolidated or abandoned, and
that possibly aviation activities would
be transferred to the National C3uard
' and reserve forces.
Congress lias allowed no deficiency
i appropriation for the reopening of tlic
| Government's helium plants, which ex
tract this invaluable and non-lnflama
, bie gas urgently needed by the army
and naval lighter than air services. It
j was said by Chairman Madden, how
j ever, that the subject of helium was be
in-{ studied by o. subcommittee, and that
it would come up Inter.
I Xaval officers take the view that Con
j gress does not realize what It is doing
to tiie navy, and Congress, it im said,
i feels that its authority is not receiving
propel* recognition. This attitude is
dearly shown in the recent fight on the
naval fuel "deficiency" \vhlch naval of-1
! fleers hold is not a deficiency, as the (
$t 2,000,000 requested for fuel anl ac?
i ci'ssorles was a requeat for authority to
i reallot funds almady appropriated for
other less vllaI purposes.
The House, on Saturday, however, ap-;
propria:ed only ts.ooo.ooo for fuel up to'
June SO, a 50 per (c-nt. reduction from
the amount declared essential by the de
partment which has already consumed
nearly half of the fun is alloted in the
I last two months. Tt is said to be ab

? on this amount, even if the ships were

Speaks on Parish Endowment
at Heavenly Rest Church.
The Rev. Henry V. B. Darlington, for
mer rector of St. Barnabas'? Church,
Newark, who last Wednesday resumed
the rectorship of the Church of the
Heavenly Rest as successor of Dr.
Herbert Shipman, suffragan Bishop of
the New Tork diocese of 'he Protestant
Kpis 'opal Church, preached his first ser
mon at the Fifth avenue church yester
day. He said:
**t"nder the (treat leadership of a
splendid body of men who have pre
ceded me as rectors of this church God
has blessed the work of this parish. We
now have a church building, which some
refer to as very homelike. We also have
.1 parisli house and endowment. That
endowment, however, in comparison
with the size of the parish seems piti
ably small. Tt seems to me that those
who love the church and desire to ver
petuate Us work have no better oppor
tunity to do so than by contributing to
the endowment of the parish.
"While we have all these things we
need something more. We need a united
people: everybody ready to support ;
everybody else."

Bishop, to honor the fifty-second anni
versary of the rectorship of the Rev. .
John F. Steen.
"A fifty-aecond anniversary is an un
common thing," said the Bishop, "and
the vi ork and record which stand behind
this anniversary are still more uncom- 1
mon." He added that he first h^ard of ;
Dr. Steen thirty years bro while In Red- ,
lands. Oil,, and had learned then of his ]
"remarkable work."
To Attain success, said the Bishop, it i

an arrest there Friday night. He said;
the management absolutely discounte-|

discharged since prohibition because of
their failure (o comply with the orders
of the management.
"I have printed on all my menus."
said Mr. Cox. "a reminder to patrons ;
that no intoxicating liquors arc sold
with the consent of the management in
Murray's, and warning them not to pur
chase from other sources. I do not think
it is sufficiently appreciated how diffi
cult it is for establishments which are
trying to obey the law and preserve
their reputations to go on in the face
of difficulties which they cannot alto
gether control. Everybody Knows that
waiters are selling liquor in every hotel
and restaurant in the city."
There was a small panic yesterday

Rabbi Denounces 'Croakers'
Who Don't Think So.
Dr. Samuel Sehulman, in a eermon on
"Croakers and Consolers" yesterday at
Temple Beth-El, Fifth avenue and Sev
enty-sixth street, said it is a delusion to
glorify the past, and declared that the
world was never better than it Is now.
He divided people into two classes?the
croakers, or condemning critics, and tlv j
consolers, or indestrucible believers. Th.
croaker, ho said, is always asking:
"How was it that the former days were
better than there ?" The voice of the
consoler is weak, the rabbi added, and
condemnation is the universal vcrdict.
because faith is at an ebb.
Dr. Schulman told his congregation!
tl at the purpose of religion is to mak-^ I
1.3 strong and cheerful in the face of
life, which confronts us as a mysterious
power, with which we have to wrestle.
"We are prone," he continupd. "to
grumble at the weaknesses of man ar.d
the cruelties of fate, so that nothing
seems worth while, and it is not the
voice of the songster, but that of the
cioaUer, that is heard in the land."

Treaty, Says Bishop in
lieu ten Letter.
That humanity has been restored to
the grace of the Middle Ages?the grace
of c!ii\,ilrous warfare?wan suggested by
the Right Rev. Cnarles Henry Brent.
Episcopal Bishop o" Western Xew York,
in n l.enten letter make public yester
day. He said:
"By limitation of naval armament#
and tho elimination of certain extra
brutal features of warfare we have
reached again such a ineaajre of genth -
inanlincs arid chivalry as prevailed In
medieval'times. W'e have formally and
nationally proclaimed the reopening of
political fellowship with the chief culprit
of the world war by commissioning an
Ambassador to Germany. It is for us to
make it a Christian fellowship. Chris
tian forgiveness ha?< not been working
overtime In the direction of our enemies."
The letter, which is headed, "Kro.ji
World Cottsclousnes j tj World Con
science," was prepared by Bishop Brer.t
at the request of the social service depart
ment of the Episcopal church, and with
the approval of Bishop Callor. president
of the national council of the church,
will be read to Episcopal congregation -
throughout th world.
"The true cltir.en to-day," says Bishop
Brent, "is a citizen of the world, and his
first loyally. U to mankind. Patriotism
comes a? a second loyalty, to be checkcd.
disciplined and determined by the Aval
and greater loyalty. This must extend
to every department of life, r.-ligious and
Intc llecttial, political and commercial.
"U'c Christians have serious business
ahead of us. It is the Church of Cod
that alone is commissioned and empow
ered to create a conscience in men that
will make for brotherhood. The Chris
tian preacher has it as Ills inalienable
duty to interpret Christ's teachings in
terms of the whole world family. We
are on the crest of the wave cf opportu
nity. The immediate and concerted ac
tion of the churches will decide whether
the world Is to backslide or progress
Progress does not control us: we control
progress. If there is no progress the
chief Mane will be at the door of the
churches and those commissioned to
speak in Christ's name."
