' ' 3-7tc WASHINGTON—(^h-William Howard' Gardiner, president of the Navy League, said MpHday\that President' Hoover's naval attitude called for a "Congressional investigation into his entire conduct of naval affairs." Meantime, the prospect that Congress would inquire into the controversy between Mr. Hoover and the Navy League grew. Chairman Hale of the Senate Naval Commitee said he planned to introduce a bill calling for building the navy to limits of the London treaty. He estimated it would ask authorization for new ships costing between $800,000,000 and 5900,000,000. There is little doubt that ,in this and other legislation, the entire dispute will be reviewed. The first pamphlet issued by Gardiner charged Mr. Hoover with "abysmal ignorance" of naval matters. The president asked for an apology. Instead, Gardiner reaffirmed Monday his feeling that Mr. Hoover knows very little about the navy. Gardiner centered upon a' proposal by Mr. Hoover over a year ago that food supplies should be immune from interference in time of war. He said it was inconceivable that anyone who understands the situation could have made' such a suggestion, adding the alternative was to consider the proposal as the "ill-advised nostrum," of a layman.

New Chevrolet Is On Display Here Latest Model Embodies Past Features With Big Improvements Nearly every feature and appliance .of proven valua'has been built.'intoi .the new 1932 -Chevrolet which was) placed on display here Saturday at the Young Chevrolet Compay. While the new machine has retained the low price of earlier models, the latest Chevrolet contains silent syncro-mesh transmission in combination with optional free wheeling, an increase in power of 20 per cent, maximum speed from 65 to 70 miles per hour, stream-lined bodies and a large number of other features usually found on automobiles costing several times more. The car has been announced as the "The Great American Value for 1932" by the manufacturers, who have made more improvements in the design and mechanism htan has been made at any time since the builders changed to the six-cylinder type in 1928. Nothing has been subtracted from the 1931 model ihd improvements have tended to refine the performance and appearance of the 1931 car, which was the most successful model built ot that date, according to the manufacturers. Most radical change'in the exterior appearance of the machine is the new- front view of the automobile. The front assembly of the body is joined to the chassis in an entirely new manner, insuring greater stability and absence of vibration, and at the same time relieving the machine of the weaving that is usualy encountered in driving over rough roads. While the wheelbase has not been changed, new streamlined body designs give the appearance of a larger, roomier car. The new Chevrolet is said to have been the first car to embody syncro- mesh and free wheeling in one transmission assembly. A control button located on the dash allows the driver to control the free wheeling mechanism at will. In this way the driver is enabled to have the double advantage of the braking power of the motor while driving in traffic and in mountainous districts and free wheeling under less hazardous circumstances. Manufacturers offer 12 body designs to the public. Three are of the open type, and nine are closed models. Besides the standard models, eight body designs are available with standard equipment.
