Before we permit ourselves to gel. too stirred up by all this, it would I JB a good thing for us to look at the whole question realistically, with .sentiment discarded. \ , . * * We like to loll .ourselves tiial tlio Washington naval treaty was Die 'result of a great bit of pure unselfishness on ow;, purl/ forced on design- ink' nations by American idealism. As a mutter of fact, it was not that at nil. The close of Die World War found us with an enormous building program under way. ,We had six tremendous dreaclnamrhls under construction— ships of 43,200 tons each, mounting twelve IC-inch guns apiece, and estimated 'to coa §21,000,000 each without ,<ruVis or armor. x ' ' ' . . v • '.•" ' Also under construction 'were four ch-eadnauglits of Die Colorado class, of 32,000 tons each, mounting tight JG- inch guns, and costing upwards of ?20,000,000 apiece. Six great battle cruisers were also being built— incomparable vessels of 35,300 tons, mounting . eight Mi-inch guns, designed for a speed of 35 kiwis, and estimated to cost $30,000,000 each. In addition, ten light' cruisers were on the ways, and something like 100 destroyers. * • * „ All thib represented one of the greatest naval programs in any nation's Instoiy. II W us going to be horribly expensive. We wanted to get out from under. Tax reductions were inevitable. The load could not be carried. So wc proposed ami put through the great naval treaty—and saved ourselves hundreds of millions of dollars Hint wc probably could not have persuaded ourselves to spend anyway. Now the treaty is expiring; and we, will do ourselves no good al all if we feel that high ideals of a tlo/.cn years "go arc being Honied. It will he much. holier for us lo re-e.vaminc our whole naval policy and decide whether \vc really need to fju worricd if England and Japan decide that they need moru ships f'han we think they need. —Bruce Gallon. Damming the Mississippi '('lie Mississippi Valley Committee )w.f given Secretary Jckes its rceoni- memlations for future control and development of the Mississippi river, and while Die report has not yet been made public it is understood in Washington that il calls for a vast system of dams up and down the whole length ' and • breadth of Hie Mississippi valley. If this is correct, there is foreshadowed one of Die most remarkable in- ternaj developments .ever umlerlakcn by any nation. Tho 'dams, it is said, would be designed primarily for Hood control. Secondarily, however, they would provide enormous' (juantities of electric power, make possible tlic irrigation of vast stretches of now arid land, and aid navigation up and down Die whole river network. What is now being done in the Tennessee river valley would be duplicated in the valVeys of Die Mississippi's oilier tributaries. It will, be interesting lo see how much of a starl the administration proposes to make on this stupendous ' project.
