government s war program was se
rerely criticised in the senate today by
5enator McCumber of North Dakota,
who defended the part taken by con
fess, and resented .receipt of many
post cards bearing the late Joseph H.
thoate's words: "For God's sake,
hurry up." These, Senator McCum
ber said, should be sent to the gov
. trnment departments.
'The delay is due to shameful fail
ure of those appointed by the admin
istration to speed ifp," said Mr. Mc
Cumber, asserting congress had per
formed its duty with unparalleled
alacrity, generosity, in appropriations
and unanimity of action.
Despite appropriations of more
than $1,750,000,000 for the government
shipbuilding program,. Senator Mc
Cumber said, it had been "grossly

nomination for United States senator,
and J.'O. Bentall, socialist candidate
for governor, both convicted last
week of violating the espionage act,
were sentenced to terms of four and
five years, respectively, in the federal
penitentiary at Leavenworth, Kan., by

Washington, April 19. Naval avia
tion was characterized as a "dismal
failure" by Representative Britten of
Illinois in the house today.
Naval aviation must be co-ordinated
before it can be a success, he said.
The house, he declared, would be
"astounded" to know how few ac
credited pilots the Navy department
had January 1 of this year.
Defending the progress of the avia
tion, Chairman Padgett of the house
naval affairs committee, said he had
been informed that there is not now
an aviator abroad who has not a ma
chine with which to fly. A member of
the aircraft board recently told him
he said, that the Navy department was
about 60 days behind in naval fight
ing machines, but that it expected to
overcome the delay in a short time.
