10 MONEY FOR SHIPS INADEQUATE, SAYS SENATOR FLETCHER BUU more money for building- up American shipping, bat little change la the existing shipping law, la the prediction of Senator Fletcher of Flor ida, chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee and the man who wu chiefly Instrumental In putting- the shipping board measure through the upper house. Senator Fletcher today declared there wu no reason nr any clash r conflict between the shipping; board and the head of the fleet cor poration. Board Most Get Results. There la no reason why there should be any conflict," said Senator Fletcher. "1 do not believe the law needs changing- In this respect. The shipping board la the supreme au thority. It has authority over the fleet corporation. It the latter does not produce results, It Is for the ahlpplnr board to put some one In charge that will. I do not expect important chance In the shipping law next session. We will have to crant more money for ahlpplnr, however. Development of Ample shipping; facilities la of first Importance In the conduct of the war. It is important, too, (or the period after the war. Deyleres Lns Delay. "We hare tle opportunity of our lives to build up our shipping;,'' con tinued Senator Fletcher. "We should not omit any opportunity whatever. Already, we have watted too long-. "Bad the shipping legislation been passed in 1813 when I first urg-ed it, we could have built steel ships, and had them finished now and in opera tion, and they would have cost us S45 a, ton. otnpanles were ready to sign up contracts at that figure. Now, we are making contracts at 150 a ton. Materials are high, -labor Is high, everything is high. It would have been .fortunate, Indesd, had we he ron earlier. The fact we did nqt. Is due to the opposition of foreign ahlpplnr Interests, that saw in Amer ica a dangerous rival If it once got started toward the development of Its merchant marine." Confidence In Future. Senator Fletcher, though he regrets this country hsa held back so long on ahlpplnr. is by no means without hope and even confidence in the out look. Be holds that this country must go ahead on shipping construc tion with great energy, and must recognise that ships are. all Impor tant. "Senator Fletcher said this country needed to develop for its use from 8,000,000 to 10.000,000 tons shipping. He recognizes this wHI take time. 'While it has been estimated that as high as 8,000,000 tons might be built in the first year Senator Fletcher does not expect It. The Italian situation Is one of the things calling for more ships. In Sena tor Fletcher's opinion. He has a high oolnion of the Italians. "They have done much In the face of great difficulties," he said. "I believe that when they asked for runs, munitions, and material, the rest of the allies should have gone to their assistance." CHINA CLASHES WITH JAPAN. PEKING. Nov. 1. Extension of the Japanese civil administration of the railway on the Shantung peninsula, between Tsingtau and Tslnanfu, cap tured from the Germans, has been protested by China. Chinese news papers Insist that Japan should leave Shantung entirely ADVERTISEMENT. FJ Q Kept her locks youthful, dark ar?d glossy with common garden Sage and Sulphur. When you darken vour hair with ' Sage Tea and Sulphur, no one can ' tall, because It's done so naturally, so evenly. Preparing this mixture, I though, at home is mussy and trouble some. At little cost you can buy at any drug store the ready-to use prep aration. Improved by the addition of I other Ingredlenta called "Wyeth'a I Mage and Sulphur Compound " You ' Just dampen a sponge or soft brush I with It and draw this through your hair, taking one small strand at a time. By morning all gray hair dls 'appears, and, after another appllca tlon or two, your hair becomes beau tlfully darkened, glossy and luxuriant. Cray, faded hair, though no dls grace, is a sign of old age, and as we all desire a youthful and attractive appearance, get busy at once with Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur Compound and look years youtger. This ready tcuse preparation is a delightful tol let requisite and not a medicine.
