Admiral W. S. Sims declared in a cablegram received today by Sec retary Den by. “Statements that, were attributed to me,” said the message, “were not cor rectly quoted. Context misleading and garbled. Report of statements is in correct and inferentially wrong. State ment actually made was substantially the same as repeatedly made in public in America and in my book, ‘The Vic tory at Sea,” and in public addressed at meetings held for increasing good relations between the English speak ing people.” Case In Stain Quo Secrotarv Denby would not com ment on the admiral’s message.

Secretary Daniels was bom barded with telegrams and letter de manding that disciplinary action be taken against the officer, but no such steps were taken.
