PAGE THREE f i i3- t f f I la - 2 f ! t 4 r BUREAU TO DEVELOP IS NAVIGATION HARDING PROPOSAL tRepubllcan A. P. Leased Wire ASilINGTON- Dec- -President iJtl, dms transmitted to congress yes teraay the annual report of the na tional advisory committee for aero-, luUca 'with the recommendation iha a bureau for the regulation and Development of air navigation be es tablished in the department of com merce as proposed by the committee. I think there can be no doubt," the Tersident stated Jn a message, "that the development of aviation win be cotne of great importance for com merce as well as national defense. While the material progress in air raf has been remarkable, the use has not yet been extensively devel oped in America." A bill to create a bureau is pend ing before the house commerce com- ...lien. J The report, which supplemented! "t maae last April, recommenced continuation of the air mail sen-ice and development for naval purposes.

Dec. g. Consider ation of the status of French and Italian navies under a five power naval limitation agreement may be taken up next week, some of those connected with conference groups be lieve. The step, however, is under stood to be dependent on clearing up of the 5-5-3 ratio for Great Britain, the United States and Japan, and it Is generally believed action in that regard will serve as a precedent un der which to deal with the European naval situation. Attention of more than one na tional group here has been attracted by Paris dispatches dealing with what appear to be plans of France to augment Its naval force. The dis patches said it had been voted to increase naval personnel from 61,000 to 67,000 and some concern is ex pressed as to what effect this might bavo on conference negotiations. . The rule for naval limitation pro posed by Secretary Hughes contem plates virtually a naval status quo as to relative strength but on a basis of reduced forces. AH three navies involved would be scaled down Premier Briand of France was gen erally understood to have accepd that principle for his government. What study British experts have Riven to the European naval prob lem has not been disclosed, but it has been indicated they wouia loon with out favor on any upward revision In naval power for neighbor states at time when Great Britain was agreeing to cut down. o Memorial Protests The Torture Of War Prisoners Jn India WASHINGTON. Dec. 8 A mem orial protesting against "the torture of war prisoners in India" was sent yesterday to arms delegates signed by five natives of India as "spokesmen in America for the nationalist cause." The petition asked that when the conference came to framing rules for conduct of war, "steps be taken to end the revolting practice of tor turing helples- risoners." "We are movrl to circulate this prayer." the meuiuilal read, "because of reports circulated! by The Associ ated Press, of an inquiry conducted at Tirur. India, Into tv,s shockingly brutal treatment of captive Moplaha by the British forces. "Under date of December 1, The Associated Press reports the testi mony of a British police officer ad mitting water was denied the pris oners, more than 100 of whom are packed into a closed box car on a trlt of many hours' duration. Sixty four of those prisoners were dead w hen the train reached its destina tion. On December 2, The Associated Press reports the testimony of one of the survivors, telling of the fright ful sufferings endured on that tragic journey. "Knowing the unimpeachable rep utation The Associated Press has for accuracy and reliability? we believe the reports offered can not be cnai lenged. o 'Wet Newsoapers Obstacle To Dry Enforcement, Says WASHINGTON. Pec. 8. "Wet newspapers were described to the Anti-Saloon league yesterday as the first obstacle to the complete en forcements of prohibition in an ad dress by General Superintendent P. A. r.aker. Behind this obstacle, he said, are "judges, sheriffs, prosecuting at torneys, mayors and city solicitors" who seem not to have learned that the eighteenth amendment has been adopted. He referred to the que;-, attributed by Lord Northcliffe, during his visit, of "when does prohibition begin in this country?" as "impudent." TuliliciPts of the Northcliffe type." h said. "will greatly add to the moral standards of this republic by staying home." German brewers who nave been "outlawed in the United StRtes" are r,iihinir into China, Japan.
