'DON'T GIVE UP
THE SHIP," IS
NAVY PLEA
THE BKIDGHEPOICr TEME
'Page Ninfe
Washington, Aug. 2 The battle
ship will Btay.
This la the' consensus of expert
: opinion here today, as Army and
JN'avy officials digest the technical re
; ports on the recent bombing tests
'conducted hy the Navy Department.
It is true that the aerial bombers
(succeeded in sinking every type of
craft Irom the suDmarine on up to
fthe dreadnaughit Ostfriesland, but
1 these tests have not convinced naval
'experts that the battleship is obso
lete. "Don't give up the ship, is the cry
of all experts, after studying the
technical reports.
The immediate effect of the bomb
iing tests will be & great drive by the
Navy to Increase its aerial forces,
j Secretary of the Navy Denby, it is
. learned, is impressed with the fact
' that no battle fleet is ready for war
unless it has a full compliment of
auxiliary air fighters.
Within a short time ofHcial reeom
imendations will be made to Con-
gress for appropriations authorizing
!he construction of newer and larg
' er types of naval aeroplanes.
It is true that many of these Inves
tigations have proved to be worth
while, especially when they were fol
followed up by legislation designed
to correct or lessen the evils which
it was sought to uncover.
Dozen Probes Sow Oil.
A considerable number of Senators
I and Representatives have "surveyed
the situation, howver, and have come
to the conclusion that it might be
('well to put a damper on superfluous
investigations in order that the atten
tion of Congress might not be divert
. ed from the serious business of mak
;ing the country's laws.
Despite this growing fe Ing it is
regarded as unlikely that any reduc
tion in he number of Senatorial or
r Congressional probes can be expected
, in the near future, because it is
. nearly always possible to assemble
enough votes in either branch of Con
: gress to get an affirmative decision
on the question "to probe or not to
, probe?" when it comes "to a show
i down.
During the present session of Con
gress, called for the purpose of re
using the internal revenue laws and
(passing a new tariff bill, the Senate
tend House have investigated or are
.mow in the midst of inquiring into the
railroad problem, the agricultural
situation, the mine war in West Vir
ginia, the escape of Grover Cleveland
Bergdoll, the needs of ex-service
Imen and the bureaus organized for
ftheir relief, the Federal Reserve
(Board and a hqst of lesser subjects
lincident to routine legislation.
Appropriations also will be asked
(for at least six aeroplane carriers to
operate with the fleets. Naval archi
rtects are now working up plans for
-vessels of this type, which calls for
!the construction of gigantic ships
'Capable of carrying several squad
rons of aeroplanes and of maintain
Hng a speed equal to the maximum
pepeed of the battle fleet when in
'fighting formation.
In view of the disarmament pro
'posals which have been made by
President Harding, considerable Con
' jgressional opposition to further ap--.
propriations is expected, but it is the
contention of the naval experts that
th disarmament conference will not
Trovide for complete disarmament
and. .that, the United States is now
-considerably behind Great Britain in
the matter of naval air forces, par
ticularly in the matter of aeroplane
carriers, .
The sinking of the ex-German
ehips "has given new incentive to the
experimental work of the Navy. Ord
nance experts are at work endeavor
Jng to devise a gun that will be cap
able of offering adequate, defense
against the air forces, and at the
.Fame time they are at work on ar
mor experiments, devising new means
f armor construction to add to the
Invulnerability of the battle craft
igainst aerial bombers.
The aviation experts ae just as
tusy. They are working upon planes,
under radio . control, which can
launch radio-controlled torpedoes,
and they are working upon improved
jbombing sights to increase the per
centage of hits.
The sinking of the ex-German bat
tleship Ostfriesland has made more
tir in naval circles than any event
since the. first German U-boat began
raiding operations off the American
coasts.
" Disarmament is a thing of the fu
ture, a. mattter of conjecture, the
naval men say. and their job is to
prepare for war now. They are at
"their job with feverish enthusiasm.
FILM INDUSTRY
ADOPTS RULE
Cost of Productions Must
. Be Lowered to Set Enter
prises on Their Feet, Pro
ducers Say.
Los Angeles. Aug. 2 A new era is
dawning in the motion picture world.
According to leading producers the
days of extravagant salaries and in
efficient methods are gone forever.
"Cut the cost, but keep the quality
up
This is the order which has been
given in every one of the big studios
of Southern California, and for sev
eral weeks a general retrenchment
has been in progress.
"The motion picture industry has
passed from a period of abnormal
prosperity." said Jesse L. Lasky, first
vicepresident of the Famous Players
Lasky Corporation, in analyzing pres
ent conditions. "It behooves produc
er! to face present critics conditions
courageously s.nd to fight through the
period of readjustment to the perio.d
of normalcy.
"The motion picture producing or
ganization that does not realize the
seriousness of the situatoin and act
accordingly cannot survive ??????
be bsolute efficiency. Extravagance
must be replaced by economy. The
day of reckless expenditure, I feel
certain, has gone forever and economy
is to be the watchword of the new
era.
"Officials of our nrpani t ion were
called upon each to do his share f"
puiung down the corporation on an
fiini':nL economical oasis.
"Solely in the interest of Econo
mical production, we closed our studio
on iiong Island, N. Y., aI1(j transferred
all productions to our studio in Holly
wood. We are striving to eliminate
all the old extravagances of produc
tion and aiming for the greatest econ
omy." Samuel Goldwyn. president of the
Goldwyn Picture Cororation, said:
"We are now making oietiires at a
lower cost than formerly. Many items
ox eiiieose wmcn tormerly were re
garded as necessary are being elim
mated. Salaries are also beinsr rednr.
ed and expenditures watched with a
careful eye. This is nerpssnrT in
order that motion pictures may re
main a popular priced amusement."

er of the Universal Film Manufactur
ing Company, said:
"The man who says that the motion
picture industry is in a splendid fin
ancial condition is just as wrong as
the man who says it faces ruin,
"The present unrest Is the best
thing that could have happened to
the industry. No permanent peace
was ever achieved without revolution.
"When the stories that are now
being filmed at a reasonable cost
can be released to exhibitors et a cost
that will enable them to exhibit them
for what they are worth, make a rea
eonabe profit for themselves, return
a reasonable profit to the producer
and give the purchaser his money's
worth of entertainment the motion
picture industry will be properly on
its feet."
Expert Marksman Is
Acquitted on' Attempt
to Kill Charge
Prosoer, Wash., Aug. 2 Because
lie can kill JackrabbUs on. the run
with a six shooter Edward Behn was
freed on a charge of second degree
assault by Judge James Boyle, Behn
was accused of attempting to kill Ed
Gordon, but when the bullet he fired
at Gordon from a distance of two
paces missed its mark the judge de
cided the shot was only intended to
frighten the complainant.
Gordon had (bestowed attentions on
Bella's niece. Behn objected and fol
lowed the couple to their "love nest"
about H:30 p. ra drew his six shoot
er and told the young man to "beat
it while the beating wan good," ac
cording to one witness. Gordon da
murxed and Behn fired a shot which
started the youthfui. wooer on a record-breaking
sprint. He swore out
Information charging Behn tried to
kill him,
A number of witnesses testified
they had seen Behn pop over jack
rabbits on the run with his revolver
that Behn could toss nickels in the
air and plug them every shot, and
that he always Jed marksmen at
hooting matches or in quest of wild
geese. One witness swore ".he .-had
watched Behn while riding a running
'horse sink six successive shots in as
many femco poeta,
Trii Tiovle decided that a man
who was such a good marksman as
Behn was not guilty of attempting to
kill a man when he missed him at a
distance of two paces,
