NAVAL STORES NO. 49 ELIGIBLE BACKED BY STATE LOUISIANIANS BACK MOVEMENT TO OBTAIN AID FROM THE GOVERNMENT EACH STATE IS The Bill As Passed Does Not Inter* fere Withh Private And Parochial Schools. Petition Was First Circulated In August. ' New Orleans, La.—A petition signed by 11,805 residents of Louisiana, rep resenting practically every parish in the state, was sent to Washington re cently by the Tower-Sterling League of Louisiana asking Congress to pass the education bill now pending, which provides for the creation of a depart ment of education with a secretary »a the president's cabinet. The bill also provides federal aid for education in the states by an appropriation of not less than $15,000,000. "The establishment of a federal de partment of education does net mean federal control of education,""' said John C. Suarez, president of the Tow er-Sterling League of Louisiana. "It merely allows the states a fund to draw upon to increase their own edu ' cation facilities. "Some of the purposes of this bill are: The preparation of public school teachers and equalizing educational opportunities throughout the states. "The bill does not interfere with the management pf private or paroch ial schools. Nearly all the foreign powers have a secretary of education In their cabinets or governing bodies. It has been found the most effective method of centralizing and improving educational^ facilities." Bach state, to be eligible for partici pation in the proposed appropriation, must conform to the following require ments: A public school opportunity of not less than twenty-four weeks; com pulsory attendance at some school for at least twenty-four weeks in the year of all children between 7 and 14 years of age; English the basic language in »traction in all schools. The state superintendents of educa tion would constitute an advisory council to the secretary of education at Washington and be called into council by him once a year. The petition was first circulated in Louisiana last August. A. C. Carstens is the Secretary and Louis Hufft the treasurer of the Tower-Sterling Lea gue Tn this state.

W IS OPPOSES PRESIDENT SEEKS TO RECONCILE DEPARTMENT AND CONG RESS ON EXPENSES. SEC. DENBY IS DETERMINED Drastic Cut Is Possible As House Com mittee Discusses An Appropriation For A Force Of Barely 60,000 Men. Washington. —President Hardin? has inaugurated an effort to.rceoncLc wide differences of opinion betweei: the Navy Department and Congress a* to the size and cost of the navy for the next fiscal year. At a White House conference with Republican members of the House Naval Committee and Représenta live Mondell of Wyoming, the Repub lican leader, the president, seeking to compromise what some members have described as the "extreme views" is said to have declared that with the size of the navy fixed by the arms conference, the total. enlisted person nel ought not to be less than 80,000 Secretary Denby has insisted on an enlisted strength of 90,000 und the present officer personnel, including 540 members of the first class at A~ napolis, to be graduated in Jane Chairman Butler and other member of the committee have said, howcvei that Mr. Denby's figures for an ap propriation bill carrying a total <; $350,000,000 are too high, and reports have reached the president that a considerable number of House ineni bers are demanding a cut so sweep Ing that there may be funds enough in the new navy bill for only 60,000 men In the face of determined opposi tion to his estimate Mr. Denby and Admiral Coontz, chief, of naval oper ations, announced that they stooc pat on their figures. It was b*'-asc of this situation Drat the president called in the Republican committee men, with whom he conferred for an hour and a half. The feeling prevails in some quar ters that the president has hit upon an easy basis of compromise, and that he had said he w*ould not approve a bill that might effectually "Scrap" the navy below the arms conference point through failure to provide suf ficient men to man the 18 battleships and other craft alloted the United States by international agreement. As the real fight over the size and cost of the navy will be before the subcommittee on Appropriations, of which Representative Kelly Repub lican of Michigan, is chairman, tljpre was a suggestion that Mr. Kelly'ß and Mr- Butler's committees, or rath er the Republican members of each, get together. Witnesses now appear ing before the Naval Committee will be called by the Appropriations Com mittee, which will frame the bill.

GIANT DIRIGIBLE CRASHES TO EARTH ARMY'S SECOND FOREIGN BUILT AIRSHIP TAKES HEAVY TOLL Norfolk, Va. —Of 46 army air serv ice officers, enlisted men and civil ians who left Langley field air station ; on what proved, to be the last flight of the giant army dirigible Roma, 35 are dead and eight survlviors are in army hospitals here, suffering from shock, burns and bruises. In less than an hour after casting off her moorings at her hangar across Hampton Roads, the Roma was a tan gled mass of wreckage, her huge gas bag completely destroyed by fire after a fatal nose dive while soaring above ; the army supply base here. 1 Flung earthward, presumably by a I broken rudder, the Roma plunged 1000 ; : feet or more, capsized across a high ; tension electric line, and burst into a roaring furnace of burning hydro gen gas. Three fire departments fought the flames with chemicals. Derricks be gan picking up the wreckage as the flames were driven back. There was j : scarcely more than the aluminum framework and the six Liberty mot ors to move. Every man who escaped alive was burned Or bruised, or both. Eyewit | nesses agreed however, that the huge j kite-like structure of the stern rudder j itself as large as a bombing plane, slipped to one side as the Roma drove along, 1,000 feet above the army base. She was making a trial flight with a new battery of Liberty motors. They were installed to replace Italian en gines bought with her 'in Italy, but which had not proved satisfactory. Installation was completed at Lang ley field two weeks ago. Those below at the Hampton Roads base, their attention caught by the approaching thunder of the six mot ors, looked up to see the Roma dip down from her straight flight. The' ship nosed down steeply. As she came closer it was seen that her crew was hurling out sand ballast from the ports in the fragile fabric that formed the covering of the space between her keel and back, and the living and operating quarters of the Bhip. The dipping blunt nose of the bag did not respond. On the ship came, unchecked in her glide earth ward, head first. Her commander coaid not force her the few hundred feet that would have dropped her into the waters of the bay and compara tive safety. Radio Light Extended.

Text Kept A Secret. Washington. — An administration move for compromise on reservations to the four-power Pacific treaty failed of immediate success after it had stir red up a spirited debate in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Coming from a conference with Pres ident Harding, Chairman Lodge of the committee laid before his colleagues a revised reservation, declaring in spec ific terms that the treaty does not con template an "alliance," and drafted to take the place of the blanket reserva tion to which a majority of the com mittee members previously had indi cated their support. Those who had sponsored the orig inal blanket qualification immediate ly opened fire on the new reservation, and the hour of debate which follow ed was the stormiest passage witness ed in the committee since the days of the Versailles treaty fight. Senators Borah of Idaho and John son of California, among the Repub licans, and Senator Pomerene of Ohio on the Democratic side, led opposition to the administration proposal, while all the other reservationists reserved final judgment. In his advocacy of the modified draft Senator Lodge was supported by Senators Kellogg of Michigan and New of Indiana, Repub licans. Without taking action the' commit tee adjourned until the next day and various groups began a series of con ferences is the hope that a more satis factory ground for compromise may be found to prevent a long reservation debate during committee considera tion of the treaty. Members of the committee gained the impression that President Harding is not disposed to accept the blanket proposal introduced several days ago by Senator Brandagee, Republican of Connecticut, and now awaiting action. Senator Lodge indicated that the president would like to see all reser vations voted down, but failing that will seek whatever softening appears possible in the reservation proposals. However, administration leaders are moving warily. Senator Lodge did not present his draft to the committee as an administration proposal accept able to the president, nor did he for mally offer it as a substitute for the Brandegee reservation. He only "sug gested" it, without committing either himself or Mr. Harding to its support. Two Plunge To Death.

SIZE OF NAVY MAY CAUSE A HOT FIGHT HOUSE LEADERS ARE FIRM IN ASKING REDUCTION TO 60,000 MEN. Washington—A bitter struggle is under way in Congress to determine the size of the navy. House leaders are determined to re duce the enlisted strength of the navy to 60,000 men. Its present strength is 106,000 men. The number of offi cers—7,900 at present—would be cut 25 to 30 per cent. The House plan, which probably will be reported by the Naval Approp riations Committee within a few days, would cut the naval budget to $200, 000 , 000 . Secretary of the Navy Denby and Assistant Secretary Theodore Roose velt contend that the very limit of safety to which Congress may go in cutting the navy's enlisted strength is 90,000 men. President Harding's limit is 80,000 men. The naval bud get as it will be recommended to the House will provide for 30,000 men leas than Secretary Denby's minimum and 20,000 less than the president's limit. The Navy Department's estimate of expenditures for the forthcoming year was $350,000,000. If the House plans become effective the navy estimates would be slashed $150,000,000. * The House, dominated this year as it w^p lasf year by the "Little Navy*' men, undoubtedly will give approval to these drastic cuts. The Senate Naval Affair s Committee is expected to champion the cause of the navy. Whether the Senate will go to the ex tent of approving the Navy Depart ment's estimate is a question. Senator Poindexter of Washington, acting chairman of the. Senate Naval Affairs Committee, believes that the United States should take advantage of all the building it is allowed to do under the terms of the naval pact; particularly in the matter of aircraft, aircraft carriers and submarines. The navat budget undoubtedly will be the subject of stubborn contest in the Senate. The outlook is uncertain. Last year the Senate supported the Naval Committee in the fight over the size of the navy. What it will do th!a year, with an election approach ing, is highly problematical. If the Senate supports its Naval Affairs Committee, the whole question will be thrown into conference. It is quite evidence that all the In fluence and the power of the Harding administration will have to be brought into play to save the navy from the most drastic slashing it has felt in years.
