of living is a disagreeable factor,
and it is a fact you face, not a theory.
"Other nations are watching condi
tions in our armed seryices I am tell
ing no secret in this, and when morale
cracks it sp?lls demoralization. I give
you my word that, hard passed as the
officers and men are today, personal
considerations are not their main mot
ive in asking for pay increases. They
need it God Knows but what moves
them principally Is the love of the
service and of the country they know
what the navy means to thd country,
and they want to preserve tile navy
intact, its initiative high, Its morale
unimpaired, ready to meet any condi
tion. "And the condition of world affairs
now is such that absolutely no chance
should be taken of our navy becoming
demoralized, and hence inefficient.
The navy Is the country's first line
of defense? and as professional men,
thoroughly aware of all conditions,
they know it to the heart. This mat
ter of a pay increase is just a plain
business proposition, one in which the
whole country is interested. It is sim
ply a matter of ordinary business pru
dence." . .
Admiral Cowie showed that the dol-

j had their last increase, is in purchas-

day. "No increase in pay' said he,
"have been granted since 1908, and the
naval affairs committee with ' its
knowledge of the unprecedented great
increase in living costs now prevail
ing and affecting the necessities of
life, is bound to be aware of the seri
ous disadvantages, the really heart
touching burdens, under which both
the officers and men are laboring in
vainly trying to .take care of their
families in 1919, on the basis of sal
aries established back in 1908, - .
