a. Tt! TWO MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 25 H 1936 limitation of actual fleet strengths, but restricts only the size of certain ships ' types and guns, Davis warned of the possibility of a costly naval building race if good will is not displayed by the powers in observing its spirit. Falls Short of Hopes. "The instrument we are about to sign," he said, "falls 'Short of our best hopes in that it makes no provision for quantitative reduction and limitation. This the American government and delegates deeply regret." . He found some justification for this, however, in present disturbed international conditions. "It is a commonplace that armaments are a reflection of international instability and distrust," he said. "We are at present going through days of profound economic, political and military disturbance." Eeferring to the actions of Japan in terminating the Washington and London naval treaties effective this year and then withdrawing from the present London conference when its demands for naval equality were refused, Davis said: Unable to Carry On. "The structure of naval limitation by agreement built up by the Washington and London treaties was badly damaged when it was found impossible to carry on these treaties. "The treaty which we are about to sign lays the foundation of a new sructure. It wil go far to maintain friendship and understanding between the naval powers. It will serve as a bridge to future treaties of more far-reaching scope x x x." In this connection he reiterated his government's hope of achieving in the future definite limitations on the size of navies. Until this is accomplished, however, the American spokesman ' warned: Depends on Good Will. "A drastic reduction in unit sizes will not bring 'about disarmament if numbers are correspondingly increased. "It.will depend largely on the good will of the naval powers in adhering- to the letter and spirit of the new treaty whether or not the restored freedom as to numbers will be abused by excessive building which destroys stability and upsets the equilibrium of security." Calling 1 for the belated participation of Japan and Italy, Davis expressed the belief the treaty contained nothing to which any naval long as economic sanctions were power could not agree. Italy refused to sign the pact so applied against her in connection with the Ethiopian conflict. That nation and Japan are the .only sig- .natories of the Washington treaty which are not represented in the new accord. Hails Important Aid. Davis hailed as an important aid in the. prevention pf unnecessary and disturbing naval 'construction, : the provisions introduced for the first time in the new treaty for'ex- changes of advance notification of building programs. "We have undertaken to keep each other informed not only of our .current construction in navies but also o£ our projected construction," he asserted. "Dread of the unknown has been a seriously disturbing factor in international relations." F. R. Enthusiastic Over Catch of First Day; Goes Out Again MIAMI, Fla., W)--Enthusiastic over his first day's catch, President Roosevelt looked forward Wednesday to another fishing try near Malhewtnwn, Great Inagua island. :n the Bahamas.

French Minister of State Joseph Paul-Boncour visited Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden at the foreign office for a last minute conference jefore flying Wednesday afternoon :o Paris. Hitler's refusal to withdraw his forces from the Rhineland or to accept a judgment by the world court in Germany's argument against the Franco-Soviet mutual assistance pact threw the Rhineland negotiations back to the Locarno powers. 2 French Desires. The French government was described at Paris as wavering between two desires--to take economic sanctions against Germany and to retain Great Britain's military aid. The councillors of the league of nations, after days of waiting for the word from der fuehrer, left London, putting up to Britain's Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden and the other Locarno diplomats the task of finding a way out of the new, greater impasse. With the departure of the league council, informed sources said, the first phase of the international crisis--reassertion of the sanctity of treaties, coupled with condemnation of Germany for its Rhineland occupation in violation of the Locarno pact--was past. Must Seek Basis. Now these soures said, it was for the statesmen of the individual powers to try to sort out the tangled threads of the nations' differences in such a way that a basis might be found for restoring collective security and renewing European confidence. A long, difficult series of negotiations, which informed persons said might yet mean peace or war for millions, was foreseen authoritatively.

HERRING-MILES DISPUTE FLARES Legion Editor Fires Another Broadside at Governor on Appointment.
