Washington, April 10. The battle
between the Harding administration
and" the "little navy" congressmen,
uho arc erking-lo reduce the per
sonnel of tbf liavy to 67.IHI0 men.
began in the house today.
So vigorous and aggressive became
the opposition to the appropriation
bill, which proposes to allow th?
American navy fewer men than the
Japanese navy, that the "little navy"
group found itself on the defensive
from the start and threatened with
repudiation by the house.
Under a terrific bombardment of
facts and figures showing that the
measure would well-nigh destroy
American sea power, the "little navy"
ranks began to waver. Representa
tive Padgett, Tennessee, democrat,
former chairman of the naval affairs
committee, rallied many democrats
to the administration's standard with
a vigorous speech in which he
charged that the measure not only
would render the American navy
greatly inferior to the British navy,
but would also reduce it to a bare
equality with that of Japan. Repre
sentative Tinkham, Massachusetts,
republican, branded the bill as "a
product of a pacifistic propaganda:'
Hughes Write, Letter.
The opposition has still more am
munition to fire tomorrow. Secre
tary of State Hughes, as the chair
man of the Washington conference
on the limitation of armament, has
written a letter to Representative
Rogers, Massachusetts, republican,
pptaling to the house to support the
administration s navy recommenda
tions and urging it to refrain from
action which would jeopardize Amer
ica's standing in the 5-5-3 ratio. Mr
Rogers plans to read this letter to
the house tomorrow in answer to
the "little navy" leaders who" con
tend that the provisions of the bill
do not conflict with the terms of the

tration leaders led them to predict
today that they would be able to
muster enough votes to overthrow
the "little navy" committee's recom
mendations by a majority, of about
50. They are confident they will have
sufficient strength to force the adop

about 80,000 men m "place of the 67,

New England Against Plan.
The entire New England delega
tion, regardless of party, is lined
up against the measure. Most of
the delegations from the Atlantic
seaboard states also arc opposed, to
it. A large proportion of the demo

some from the gulf states have
joined the opposition. The Pacific
coast delegations are solidly against
it. Even the middle western delega

"little navy" strength, began to
Representative.. Kelley, Michigan,
republican, chairman of the subcom
mittee which framed the navy, bill,
led off the debate with a speech in
which he insisted that the measure
allowed all the money necessary to
maintain the' most adequate and effi
cient navy possible under the terms
of the 5-5-3 agreement. He said he
had noticed many beautiful w6rks
of fiction" concerning the strength
of the British navy, which he said,
would be about 95,000 men, or about
the same as that , of the American
navy, counting, all branches of the
service, including the marines. He
declared that the Japanese navy,
notwithstanding .. the 5-5-3 ratio,

Youth Learns of

Fremont, Neb.. April 10. (Special
Telegram.) Leslie McLaughlin, 22,

terday that he Is not the son of the
woman he had been calling mother

ed burglar on his return from Og
den, Utah, in the custody of the
sheriff, that his real name is Jack
Ryan, and that he' is an adpoted son,
Mrs. McLaughlin told a pathetic
story of how she lost her first two
children. The adopted son was
brought to her arms when he was
but 48 hours old, in a Chicago hos
pital. Since then she has mothered
him as one of her own and no one
else ever knew of the deception.
Shows Legal ' Papers.
The heart-broken foster-mother
showed legal papers to prove her
claims. She made the confession to
the Vottng man himself and public
officials in an attempt to prevent' the
stigma of shame of 'his arrest trom
affecting the reputations of her two
high school daughters, aged 16 and
14. She does not want to shift the
burden of responsibility, however,
and will stick to her adopted son as
long as he needs her.
Mrs. McLaughlin docs not con
done his alleged crime and wishes to
see him take his just punishment if
guilty.; Until proved so, she says
she will" do everything in her power
to help the youth wb.om she still
loves as her own son. .

McLaughlin, alias Ryan, was im
plicated in a $500 robbery of a local
warehouse by-a confession of his
pal, Fred Pennington, Fremont. Mc
Laughlin made his escape, but a
card sent to his supposed mother
from Wyoming gave the officials the
necessary clue. Mrs. McLaughlin
believed that he had left for the west
to start life anew and was wholly
ignorant of his escapade. --
