PLANS FOR IN
CREASE IN THE
FLEET HELD UP
DANIELS SAYS LEAGUE OF NA
TIONS WILL MAKE LARGER
NAVY UNNECESSARY; FA
Washington, May 27. The policy
of the navy department for a fleet
"second to none in the world" has
been temporarily abandoned.
Secretary Daniels, appearing be
fore the house naval affairs commit
tee, today to outline the needs of
his department for the next fiscal
year, recommended that the entire
1919 three-year building program
of 10 battleships and 10 battle
cruisers be abandoned, saying that
the trend of the world towards uni
versal peace and the operation of
the proposed league of nations made
competition for supremacy of the
Fcas'no longer necessary.
The" naval secretary asserted 'that
as the United States had taken a
foremost part in promoting the
league of nations plan, it would be
the nation's duty to show faith in
the covenant by refusing to author
ize further large additions to the
;pa force. Wofk on the 1916 pro
gram, he said, should be completed
as soon as possible, but the 1919
rrogram. which, it is estimated,
would involve an expenditure of
more than 51.000.000.000 should be
"wiped off the slate."
No Hilfway Ground.
"There can be no halfway
ground," he said. "Either we must
have the league to safeguard the in
terests of every nation, or they big
gest navy in the world."
Explaining the reasons for the
change of policy. Secretary Daniels
'aid that when be appeared before
the committee last December and
urged aditional ship construction,
the associated governments had not
begun consideration of a league of
nations plan and conditions made it
necessary that the United States
should not be caught again as un
prepared as it was at the outbreak
of the war.
"Hut since then." he said, "the
covenant has been drafted and a
new era for the world has begun.
Peace will take the place of blood
shed. It will be far best for the in
terests of all nations that the United
States should set a precedent by
topping where it is."
Others Will Follow.
Mr. Daniels said if the United
States did not launch new building
programs ether nations would fol
low the example and change their
naval plans accordingly. Great
P.ritain, France and Italy. he as
pcrjed, were, waiting on the United
The secretary touched upon al
most every feature of the navy's
work in the war and will continue
his testimony tomorrow.
There has been no change, he
said, respecting a division of the
fleet, half of which will be known
p.s the Atlantic and the other half
as the Pacific, with two of the best
drrtrals in the navy in command of
each. The divisions will be equal
as to dreadnaughts and ships of
every type, he said.
It was necessary, Mr. Daniels
said, to keep up the navy's record
as to training quarters.
Members endeavored to obtain
from the secretary an expression as
tr whether the navy bad formed an
opinion as to the future of the sub
marine, but he said this had irot.
The real big thing that should
have attention. Mr. Daniels said, is
aviation, and at great length he told
of what other nations had ac
complished and of the vast sums
appropriated for this service. He
declared that the nary should have
at least $45,000,000 this year for
experimental purposes mostly, so
that by December it would be pos
sible to outline specifically the exact
needs for the next year or two.
"We have got to go forward with
this service," he added, "and if we
are to have economy we should
eeek it elsewhere."

Grieves were given a remarkable re
ception on their arrival in London
tonight from northern Scotland,
where they were landed Monday
Such enthusiasm as was shown
in the greeting of the two intrepid
airmen probably never has been ex
ceeded, except in the times of cor
onations. The crc-wds began gathering early
in the afternoon along the route
from the railway station to the Aero
club, where Hawker and Grieves
were formally' welcomed on behalf
of Loidon. When the train pulled
into tha station the entire line over
which the procession was to pass
was jammed with cheering people.
Cheer Mrs. Hawker.
A foretaste of the great welcome
that the aviators were to receive
came during the afternoon, when
Mrs. Hawker went to the railroad
station to proceed to Grant han to
meet her husband. The throng
about the station loudly cheered the
plucky lit le woman who never gave
up confidence that her husband ulti
mately would be rescued.
Arriving in London, headed by
an Australian band and a body of
Australian troops. Hawker and
Grieves passed through the densely
packed streets on the way to the
Aero club. In the procession were

Royal Aero club. Another delega

First Official Welcome.
The first official welcome was ac
corded the airmen on the station at
St. Pancras by the mayor of that
borough, but still another was giv

ing. Like Mrs. Hawker, Mr. and Mrs.
Grieves proceeded up the line and
met their son and bade him welcome
and congratulated him on his res
cue before he reached London.
In every town through which the
train carrying the airmen passed,
crowds of people gathered to cheer
them. Wherever the train stopped
official receptions were extended the
Asked whether he would make
another attempt to fly across the
Atlantic, Hawker said tonight:
"I don't know. It depends upon
the Sopwith firm."
