Cost of U. S. Naval "Scrapping" Nearly Half Billion
_ j -
Washington, Nov. 14 (Hv the
Assoclated Press.) Actual cost to
the Pelted States of Do1 scrapping
of the present naval building pro
cram, naval officials estimated rrv
tiav, would he between $400,000,000
ami $5l)0.000,tK)0, exclusive of any
salvage plan that might reduce this
total. In his statement to the con
ference on limitation of armament,
Sat unlay, peacntinsr the American
proposal, Secretary Hughes said the
i work already done bad coat J330,- I
000,000, but these figures do not in- )
, elude costs incident to abandonment |
j of the ships under construction.
Assistant Secretary Roosevelt said i
today that the American program
I would save the government about '
$200,000,000 in naval expenditures. [
The figure Is the difference between 1
the total cost of completion of the j
ships, about StlOO.hOO.OOO, and what j
scrupping them all would cost. In- |
eluded in the scrapping costs are
allowances for reimbursement of
contractors for work they have been
compelled to do !n their yards In
preparation for the huge craft to he
built. There ts no intention on the
part of the government to step work i
on the new ships until an agreement I
actually Is reached by the confer
ence, and ratified by the govern
ments Involved. That, was made
plaJn today. (
