Fleet Behind the Fleet
When a navy is engaged in either
active warfare or a blockade at a
great distance from the home base it
requires an unending merchant fleet
of every type to keep it going fast
passenger ships for raiding, scouting,
and carriage of airplanes; refrigerator
ships for food; tankers and colliers
for bunkering;' and regular cargo
ships for other supplies.
We atl too well remember that
when President Roosevelt made the
proud gesture involved in the dis
patch of our battle fleet around the
world it had to be bunkered and sup
plied in the Fecific almost entirely by
foreign flag ships.
Our naval giant, while impressing
the world,' at the same time proved
its feet were made of clay. Such
shame and impotency must never
again come to America.
In addition to our naval needs, the
late war has proved that if an army
is to be transported, there must be
an unending merchant marine under
our flag. It is through the all too
late and costly realization of this very
need that we find ourselves in pos
session of our today's government
owned fleet. ,
Marine Problem Urgent
If we are to be on anything like a
naval parity with Great Britain under
the 5-5-3 program, then there is no
problem before the American people
that presses more urgently for solu
tion than the problem of our mer
chant marine. At Secretary Denny
bus said, if atl naval armament were
ended by world agreement, Great
Britain would be mure powerful on
the sea than ever in it hinory, be

such vital ships in favor of Ilritain
a against ourselves. When age 'and
speed, in addition, are considered, f
considered they mut be, the ratio
even higher in favor of Great Ilri
tain. So that all thought must be nut
aiide that there is any possibility of
our being on a 5-5-3 naval basis, with
Great Ilritain unless and until we
have a national policy to insure the
merchant marine which must be add
ed to the total of our navy to tind
the true basis of relationship to the
naval actualities of Great Ilritain. To
say, without such a merchant ma
rine, that the Washington conference
has resulted in naval equality between
nursrlves and Great Hritain, is to
display an ignorance that may be
paid for later in the humiliation of
our country and at inexcusable sac
rifice of life and treasure.
U. S. Shipyards Periled.
Became one of the major features
of President Harding' program is
the development of such a merchant
marine under private American in
itiative, he willingly entered into the
Washington pact. With the Wash
ington agreement came the cancella
tion of many naval ships building
and the 10-year naval holiday.
unless an American merchant ma
rine be created during that period,
the art of shipbuilding will be largely
lost to America; and if war should
come again, we will find ourselves
at sad disadvantage to the maritime
nations of the world whose shipyards
have been kept'alive.

by the administration and now before
'congress is designed to meet at one,

of our merchant marine. In, the next

The Tire Question
I am a much confused Ford owner. Being in need of a new tire, I have been
watching the newspapers and making inquiries, but with all the different
prices I have seen I don't know which one to buy.
Every Ford owner is confused. One place tires are piled on the sidewalk
with ridiculous prices, another place nationally-advertised tires are offered at
half regular prices, with the assurance that th'ey are strictly first grade. The
correct answer is to be sure of your specifications, then buy as cheaply as pos
sible. The old saying that "we get what we pay for," of course, still
holds good. v

For the man who owns a Ford roadster. A good
value for the money. A four-ply standard construc
tion tire that will give reasonable service. A good
grade of cotton is used, while the sidewall is 94
pure rubber. The tread is heavy and is built for
long wear. This tire is built with chaffing strip that
prevents rim-cutting and rim-jumping. This- is our
McGregor Brand, Sprague Tire.
For the Ford touring car owner. The same costly
materials and expert workmanship as in the Sprague
Heavy Duty, with the exception that it contains but
four plies, while the Heavy Duty contains five plies
, of the best grade of long fiber jcotton. A real value
for the money.
This is a beautiful tire in the new style raised tread,
and has been named the Sprague "Standard."
Ford coupes and sedans are heavier and hence re
quire a stronger, heavier tire. This is the famous Five
Ply, Heavy Duty Sprague Tire. Materials and
workmanship are unquestioned, while service is posi
tive. Reports have been received and are on file of
these tires delivering over 20,000 miles. An excep
tional value for the money. Buy the Sprague Extra
Ply for Heavy Duty.
Sprague Tires and Tubes can be purchased at our Retail Service Department
at the Factory, 18th and Cuming, AT lantic 3032, and in Council Bluffs at our
Eighth and Broadway station, phone 1095. We maintain free service stations
and free road service at both places for your convenience.
