PRESIDENT PAYS TRIBUTETO NAVY Declares It Was Navy Who Put Army in the Fight- -ing Field ABOARD U. S. SHIP GLORGE WASHINGTON. July Ö. Pres't Wilson might have been an Ameri can i-ailor. he told the seamen of the Washington today in the course of a stirring tribute h) paid to the American navy and the part it' had borne throughout the war. His speech to the crew was made when the sailors assembled between t decks to give the president a hearty greeting as he moved about among them. It was the navy he said, which had put the army in the lighting held by safely transporting two mil lion men across the Atlantic and it is the navy now that is engaged in the task of promptly and safely re turning them back home aain. His continued thought and his pride during the dark days of the war. he i said, were these men of the Ameri can navy who performed the dan gerous duties at sea. I)ieloc Youthful Wish, The president then disclosed his youthful wish to become a sailor, a wih that would have taken him in to the American navy if he had not been dissuaded from it by his par ents. The sailors cheered their com- ma no er-in-cn ie i as ne conciuaea his talk. The sea today is as smooth as a ' (C NTINl'ni ON PA (i L FOI U.) j .

Crosby, former assist ant teasurer of the United States and for two years chairman of the inter allied council on war purchases and tinance. declared here tonight upon his arrival from Lurope on the trans port Mount Vernon. None of the Luropean nations is bankrupt, he said, though they will need encour agement to return to normal on ditions. America should aid, he said, in ad justment of the financial problems but he urged that the European countries be allowed to solve their own Internal difficulties. These prob lems, he said, were of greater im portance to Europe than all of the foreign obligations. I'lcuc! With Policy. Mr. Crosby expressed himself as greatly pleased with the policy of the federal reserve board as an nounced yesterday. He added that he believed it was much better that loans for .commercial and Industrial purposes be made by private bank ers than by the government. Gov enment loans, he said, always car ried with them an element of politi cal danger. Germany, said Mr. Crosby, event ually would reach a stable form of government if the people were given the opportunity to solve their polit ical troubles. PIoscs Intervention. Speaking of Russia, Mr. Crosby said he opposed intervention. "The Kolchak government," he continued, "is a government of pri- vate ownership without any reaction to ezarism. The other or radical type is socialistic or an attempt to set up communism. I think it would be best if the world would let the Russians settle their own affairs without outside influence." After a few days here Mr. Crosby will go to his home In Virginia for a long rest, he said. MAJORITY KOK LLVVGli;. lty the Associated Press: SPoKANL. Wah., J'ily 5.

The question of a permanent military policy probably will be forced be fore the present session of congress by Secretary Baker'a order reduc ing the army to 2C3.000 officers and men by September CO. Military ex perts here believe only speedy pas sage of the army reorganization bill will prevent demobilization of the military establishment. The recent army bill makes man datory the continuance of the four new staff corps: Chemical warfare, motor transport, tank, and air ser- vice none of which was provided for in the national defense act. Otti- cers and men must be drawn from j the line and from the regular staff j personnel to provide the necessary overhead for these branches. "A return to the status cf 190S," was the prediction of one officer. In that year companies could muster only men and regiments were frequently under the charge of one major and one captain.
