The followir article, one of a aerie dixcuxnfnf problem before the 1(40 aeaskm, tella of th National defena program which will confront the lawmaker..) V By II. S. INGRAHAM ' WASHINGTON, Dec. 27. UP) Congress will be asked to approve another record-breaking fund for National defense at the coming session, and indications today are that it will accede without much of a fight. Congressmen with military ideas ot their own, however, may provoke greater controversy than the outlay of more than $2,000,000,000 which President Roosevelt has -said he would recommend to finance the Army and Navy for the year starting July 1. Befofe the new session is a week old, two House committees will study proposals designed to make the Navy the mightiest armada the world has ever seen. rBoth are likely to provide forums for proponents of super-battleships. Possibly twice as big as any now afloat. j 95 NEW WARSHIPS Chairman Vinson (D Ga.) set January 8 tentatively for the House Naval Committee to begin public hearings on a proposed $1,300,000,000 expansion of the Navy. This would provide for 95 new warships. 31 auxiliary vessels and 2395 additional airplanes. Representative Maas (RMinn), senior minority member of the committee, said he would urge At the hearing the establishment of tt separate fleet for the Atlantic and for construction of bigger battleshipsup to 80,000 tons each in contrast to the 85,000-tonners now the Navy's largest. The House Naval Appropriation Subcommittee already has asked the Navy to furnish data on the cost of building 65,000-ton battleships. SOLONS SEE NEEDS Members of a Joint Senate- House Committee which made a 111,000-mile airplane tour of mill tary establishments in this country and the Panama Canal Zone came back with a lot of ideas which threaten to conflict with those of War Department experts. Among other things, they recommended speeding up production of the Army's new semiautomatic rifle, greater attention to protection of cities from possible air attacks, modernization of field artillery, and expansion of airports and troop training areas. The Army contends that it would take all prospective defense funds to provide even a portion of tne Nation' major cities with stationary antiaircraft guns. Pointing out that London requires about vuu sucn weapons, this country's military leaders are concentrating on development of mobile antiaircraft regiments. Further protection of the Panama Canal will be a major item in the defense program. Well - informed sources said that the Army would ask funds to begin construction of the $277,000,000 third set of locks authorized last Summer. Sentry's Shots Rout Prowler Guard Increased At Hamilton Field To Thwart Sabotage SAN RAFAEL, Dec. 27. IP) The moonlit figure of a man, moving in the shadows of one of the Army's finest planes, left the Hamilton Field Air Base personnel a bit uneasy today, and officers admitted the guard had been "considerably increased" to prevent sabotaged A sentry saw the man, in civilian clothes, last night. As he attempted to get closer to' the Intruder, the sentry stumbled and the man ran as the sentry fired three shots. Today, officers on the field, which has 53 planes and a personnel of nearly 2000 men, said "the search is still going forward" and that "an extra heavy guard" would be maintained. Field officers said the plane-berthed outside because hangars were full was not damaged and that apparently no attempt had been made to enter it. It was a two-motored, all-metal bombardment ship. The officers said there was noting definite to indicate sabotage was contemplated. 38 PLASTERERS ARRAIGNED ON U.S. ANTITRUST CHARGES Roxana Spreckels Divorce Delayed LOS ANGELES, Dec. 27.-WP) The divorce suit of Roxana Gloria Spreckels Hunsaker against Ogden K. Hunsaker was continued in Superior Court today because she had named her husband as Harry Kermlt Ogden in her complaint. Her attorney, S. S. Hahn, told Superior Judge Joseph vickers the couple was married In Yuma, Ariz., last January 28 under the name of Ogden. "It was his idea that we use other names to avoid publicity," Mrs, Hunsaker explained. Huhn said Hunsaker was a mem ber of a prominent Pasadena brokerage family that had been "in se rious difficulties a number of years ago. Judge Vickers continued the case until Friday to permit filing of an amended complaint. Mrs. Hunsaker is the former wife of John B. Spreckels, third, San Diego sugar heir.
