He said the transition of the United States from a debtor or a creditor nation had changed the tariff situation, and urged a more ef fective tariff commission.- Speaking of the conference on limita tion of armament, Mr. Hays commended tlit! proposal for the limitation of Hie naval armament of 'Great Britain, Japan and the United States and eulogized President Harding. He predicted the suc cess of the conference, and said President Harding's outstanding quality was his ability to inspire harmony aal '"get men to march in step." "This country and the world, tired of words, wanted a leadership, a program and action," the postmaster general said. "The leadership and the program have been furnished. The action will follow. I see now, and I measure my words, that the conference called by President Harding will be successful, and be suc cessful within a shorter time than you anticipate. The forces that determine the world's direction point the waj , and in the nature and force of the man who called the conference is found added assurance." WOl'LI) STOP BATTLESHIP.
