SAYS CONGRESS
WILL NOT KEEP
OLD WARSHIPS
Head of Appropriation Com
mittee Declares for Junk
ing Worthless Ships.
TO MAKE HUGE SAVINGS
Expert to Cut Ahout $150,-
000.000 From Sec y Den
hv Estimate.
liv Asmh -hi to. I'ris.
WASHINGTON, l-b. 11. Con-
res will not ?per.d one dollar for
the upkeep of old warships that are
unable to contribute to naiional de
feruso Chairn.an Kelly of the sub
committee on appropriations which
will frame th new navy bill an
nounced Sunday.
Oppos-ing tn-- .appropriation of
$350.000,000 asked for by Seo'y
Penby, lie declined to indicate how
much mii?ht be cut from the secre
tary's estimate. By carrying out his
program of junking: worthless ves
sels, it was Intimated by the chair
man's associates however, that the
flcure would be reduced to 1210,
000,0 0-0 or possibly $2C0,000-.0O0.
"I believe that congress will be
willing to fu-nish the necessary men
ind ii xaney for that part of the navy
which has a military value, " Mr.
Kelly declared. "Put there are
-cores of ?hips coating1 millions
every year which are worthless'. 1
am not going to vote to keep these
old ships in commission nor will
congress unless tt can be hown that
they can contributes to our national
defense."
Ann.iiKiti.-4 Class Must Go.
Asked how he stood on the ques
tion of turning the 540 mombers of
t lie first las4 at Annapolis back to
civil life in June. Mx. Kelly tald:
"It may be hard, but the ilrjt clas
will not bo commissioned. We will
have to be conservative in cutting
the officer personnel and in this
emergency we cannot swap men for
boys. Some of the first clas.s may
be taken in to give a sprinkling of
fresh life and energy but with the
wholesale reductions necessary the
class will have to go. Its members
have received a fine education, they
aro ready dor the frtniggl- if life,
and then- los will be more senti
mental than financial."
KlToot Knornious Saing.
"An rnormous saving can be ef
fected in junking old and worthier
ships, especially some of the older
cruisers." said Mr. Kelly. "Take
the old Olympic, for example. Ivist
year the cost of her operation was
$1.171. 000. There is a fine renti
mental demand to save her. but she
ought to be put some place where
thrtre will be no such tax burden.
The old cruiser Brooklyn, commis
sioned in 1 S f S . cost $790. 000 last
year, and the Rochester, commis
sioned in IStKt. cost $1.154.000.
"Just 'o on down the line and
you will find other old hulks costing
millions of dollars that are not
wo-th a tinker's damn for defense
purposes. These old craft, with
small guns are back numbers; they
can servo no useful training pur
poses. We have got to tie them
up."
Mr. Kelly said, however, he want
ed to emphasize that there would
bo.no ruthless cutting of appropria
tions and that new ships which real
ly make up the treaty r.avy would
bo kept in full commission. The
enlisted personnel total would de
pend, he said, upon the number of
ancient ships relegated to the junk
pile.
There will be no new construc
tion next year. Mr. Kelly said, "but
5 4 0.0or0f!0 will be needed to com
plete ships allotted by the treaty.

THE FIRST PAYS OF HER HONEYMOON.
Wedding of Princess Will
Be Ultimate in Pageantry
Ceremony Feb. 28 Will be Marked With Splendor of Music,
Ritual and Display Westminster Abbey Will be
Scene of Royal Marriage for First Time
in Six Centuries.
LONDON, Feb. 1?. The ultimate in pageantry, music aid ritual will
be achieved IV.. 2S when Princess Mary will break all records of the
British royal house by marrying a commoner. Viscount Pas -elks, whoso
title is only one by courtesy. He is the heir presumptive to Lord Hartwood,
his father.
The only daughter of ttie king and queen of England wdll be married
in historic Westminster Abbey, this being the first time a daughter of the
royul house has been wedded there for six -enturics.
On the wa dding morning the route from Buckingham pal ice dow n th
Mall, through the great Admiralty arch along Whitehall, where most of
the governmental buildings are. past Parliament house and to the abbey,
will be lined with rows of the gorgeous scarlet-coated, be.ir-skinned British
Ouards.
People fortunate enouch to get tickot-3 to the abbey will so., not one,
but four processions.
The first will be that of the royal family and representatives of foreign
courts. CJueen Alexandra, the sep-fr- .
tuager.arian grandmother of the
bridt. will be the central tisure.
The second procession will be that
of the Oueen of England, attended
by th- ladies -)f her household, and
walking with her son. the Duke of
York, followed by her other sons.
Princes Henry and fJeorge. The
Prince of Wales will not be present,
as h is touring India.
The third procession "ill be that
of Viscount Lascelles. attended by
his best man. Sir Victor Mackenzie,
who is a captain in the Soots Guards
and won the Isit inguish d service
order in the war.
After a brief pause the last proces
sion will come. The bride will enter
leaning on the arm of her father, the
king, and followed by her eight
bridesmaids. Lady May Cambridge,
Lady Rachel Cavendish said to be
the fiance of the Prince of Wales
Lady Doris. Gordon-Lennox, Lady
Mary Thynne. Lady Elizabeth Powes
Lyon and Lady Diana Pridgeman.
The wedding ceremony will be per
formed by the Archbishop of Canter
bury, the head of the Established
Church of England. He will be as
sisted by a number of bishops.
At the conclusion of the ceremony
the bride and bridegroom will be the
first to leave the abbey, followed by
the bridesmaids and groomsmen, and
then by the king and queen and
other royalties.
The procession will go bai k to
Buckingham palace.
If the weatehr is good, the prin
cess expects to go to and from the
nbbey In an open carriage, so the
people on the streets can see her.
Vliit and sliver.
The wedding will be a white and
silver ne.
The bride will be attired in a white
silk tiress. ornamented with silver
tissue, and with a long train of simi
lar material.
Her bridesmaids will also wear
white silk with silver tissue.
The princes' veil will be the .same
her mother, the queen, wore at her
wedding.
It Is probable the bridesmaids will
not wear veils, but will have sliver
bandeaus in their hair instead.
The princess will wear plain white
kid gloves and white and silver satin
slippers, which have been made
especially for her in the town of
Norwich.
The women guests at the wedding
will not wear evening dresss, as was
at first expected. Because of the
chill in the abbey, it has been de
rided that they shall wear morning
dress.
There are comparatively few bulld-inp-j
along the line of march which
are not public buildings. However,
upeculators have already secured
all available space and arc charpinc

G. 0. P. LEADERS
LEAN TO BONUS
WITHOUT TAXES
- i
Sentiment for Financing; the
Measure Out of Appropri
ation Savings Grow.
HARDING AGAINST PLAN
Opposition to Sales Tax Pro
gram Believed to be Strom:
Enough to Defeat It.
WASHINGTON, Feb. IS. The
oldiers bonus situation continued
Sunday to be so nebulous that re
publican house leaders still were
unprepared to venture even a guess
as to what plan of financing ulti
mately would be agreed upon. It
was understood to be their disposi
tion to let tho question simmer a
while longer In the hope that senti
ment would so shape itself as to
facilitate the task of those who will
frame the measure.
It developed Sunday that beneath
the surfaco of the storm which has
raged around Pres't Harding's sug
gestion thit the bonus bo financed
by a sales tax there ha. been a lot
of quiet tslk in support of the pro
posal advanced by some leaders last
week that the legislation be made a
general charge again!-' the treasury,
with expected savings through cuts
in regular appropriation bill relied
upon for the financing of a portion
of the initial cost.
When first suggested by Rep. Men
dell, of Wyoming, the majority house
leader, this proposal senned to meet
with considerable favor among the
rank and file in the house, but the
Idea became all but submerged by
the wave of talk that swept through
cloak rooms and corridors after tho
president's letter to Chairman Foid
ney, of the ways and means com
mittee, had reached the capitol.
Cut Estimator Sliarpl.
Irrespective of the bonus, there
apparently was a determination in
the house to reduce sharply the esti
mates for both the navy and the
tirmy, and that possibly $200.000.000
would be cut. out of th supply bills
for those departments alone. Such
a sum, it was said, would go a long
way toward meeting the first year's
cost of tho cash payments to the
former service men.
Some opponents of the sales levy
concede that there are sufficient
votes among the majority members
of the committee to report out such
a tax, but declare tho question of
expediency must enter into the final
decision.
If .such a tax is proposed to a party
conference, tho opponents assert
that they will renew the tight which
was waged successfully in a similar
conference in lfJL'o when the first
bonus Irl 11 was pn sented with a
sales tax atta-hed. Failing to win in
the caucus, they declare, their fight
would be carried to the floor of the
house, with the expectation of al
most solid support from the demo
crabs. It Is understood to be the hope of
the leaders of the agricultural bloc
that tho committee will report out a
bill without any specific provision for
raising the fund-, as the .viKit'j
finance committ ee. did last Near.
Pres't Harding has said that ho
could not look with favor on a
mea-sure that did not carry ways of
financing it. but it was understood
to be the thought of some of ;he
supporters of such a bill that with
a large sum available through re
ductions in the estimated cost of
conducting the regular government
establishments a situation would be
created which would remove execu
tive objection.
