Great Britain today reopened questions settled at thy iWashing-ton naval limitation conference of 1922. Addressing the three-power conference) called by President Coolidg-e. Right. Hon. W. C. i Brldgeman, the lirat lord of the admjialty, recommended reduc- tlon of future) battleships from 15,000 tons displacement to "something under 30,000," and their main armament from 16 Inches to lS.S-lnch suns; reductions In the size of aircraft carriers from 27,000 to 25,000 ton and their armament from 8-lnch to 6-inch guns; and, finally, reduction of future cruisers from 10,000 to 7,500 tons, with armament of 6-inch Instead of 8-inch cuns. Ha alio advocated limiting he size bt Individual submacinea to 1.600 tons, increasing the life of warships to 21 years Instead of 20, and waiving rights of the powers under the replacement tablea agreed upon, at the Washington conference. U.S. Points Out Objection The first United States reaction to thess proposals was that It would be difficult to reconsider the Washington treaty provisions at the Geneva conference, which Is limited to but three of the Washington signatories the United States, Great Britain and Japan with France and Italy represented only by "observers." In opening the conference today, Hugh Gibson, heading the United States delegation, called for an extension of the five-five-three ratio to submarines, ci ulSWrf "and destroyers, and gave notice to the delegates that the United Btatees had held up its building program In the nope of an early agreement on naval limitation. He also aaid that If It "should eventually be possible to reach a general agreement between all naval powers to abolish submarines, the United States would not be unfavorable to Its consideration, but that auch action In order to be acceptable must ba universal. No Definite Plans Mr. Gibabn's remarks, directed st the delegates representing Great Britain and Japan did not disclose in direct terms what the United States would do should the conference fall of satisfactory results. He did point out, however, that President Coolidge had opposed a cruiser-building program because of his hope that Ken-em! limitation wolud be possible. The United States' policy, Mr. Gib-Son said, was wholly guided bv the desire for adequate defence, and he expressed the hope that further competitive naval building could be obviated. "We are prepared, to discuss the question of tonnage fully and frankly. In the light of our legitimate needs," he said, adding, that if Great Britain ahould bring forth a plan to make the limitations even more drastic than he had proposed, the United Citatea was prepared to discuss their plans. Gibson Named President Just before presenting the United States' proposal Mr. Gibson, who had formerly called the conference to order, was elected president on the motion of Mr. Brldgeman. Admiral Pnlto, head of the Japnnese delegation, seconded the nomination, and the election was carried. Admiral Viscount Mlnoru Sal'.o. peaking for Japan, proposed that auxiliary naval strength should be based on the tonnages existing !n effective ships, continuing those under construction and those authorised, and that "none of the three powers shall, during an agreed period, adopt new building programs or acquire ships for the purpose of Increasing naval strength.' Ambassador Gibson proposed that rrulsers be limited to tonnage of 260.-C00 or 100,000 tons for the United States and the British Empire and to 150.000 or 180.000 tons for Japan. Destroyer total tonnage would be restricted to 200,000 or 250,000 tons for the two larger powers and to 120,000 to 150,000 for Japan. Message from Coolidge Maximum tonnage for United Btates and British submarines would be 60,000 to 90,000 tons, with 26,000 to 14.000 tons fixed for Japan. Mr. Gibson presented his proposal after a brief address In which he presented an expression of gratitude to the powers from President Coolidge and declared that "the United States is prepared to accept a gen eral program providing for as low a total tonnage" as acceptable to the ether powere. He expressed regret that France and Italy were not active participants In the conference and urged Japan and the British Empire, who with the united Mates are the powers "which now lead In naval arma ments," to assume "all responsibility for initiating further naval limits tion." "If we were not prepared to limit. he said, "we could not expect others to do .so. Many Obsolete 8hips Tt was understood that under the Gibson proposal the United States would be obliged to scran amiroxl mately 62,000 tons of cruisers and destroyers, mostly of the latter class and so, one tons additional upon com fjetloa ef cruisers now building.
