President Defends Subsidy Bill.
Washington. President Harding, In
an address to a Joint session of con-
ress, urged speedy ennctmcnt of the
administration's ship subsidy bill ns a
means of cutting down present losses
through operation of government
ships and putting America to the fore
front "In the peace triumphs on tho
seas of tho world."
At tho very ouset of -tho 80-ralnuto
speech, which was heard with closo
attention, the president frankly do-
larod that those standing with him
might ns well recognize Mint there was
divided opinion and determined op
position." It would bo helpful in
tearing the ntmosphere, he said, tc
start with tho recognition of this fact
With great emphasis tho president
challenged "every insinuation" that
tho bill was framed for the benefit of
favored Interests" or for the enrich
ment of tho special few at the ex
penses of tho public treasury. He de
clared that first of all he was appeal
ing to save tho treasury.
Calling attention to tho "hostility In
the popular mind" to the word "sub
sidy," stressod, ho said, by tho opposi
tion, the president nssertcd Mint
'government aid" would be a fairer
term than subsidy in defining what he
was seeking to do for Mie upbuilding
of tho American merchnnt marine.
Discussing the problem confronting
congress, tho president outlined three
courses of action. The first, he said,
was constructive, which embraced
passage of the bill ; second obstructive
continued government operntlon nnd
attending government losses nnd
third, destructive, Involving tho sacrl-
