President Declares Neutrality Act Has Not Been Peace Aid WASHINGTON, (U.PJ-Presldent Boosevelt Tuesday denounced the proposed war referendum amendment as dangerous to the national defense because of the nature of modem warfare, while on another .ttont the senate overwhelmingly passed the $358,250,000 army expansion bill authorizing an army ·^air corps strength of 6,000 planes ., Mr. Roosevelt coupled his denunciation of proposals to give the people the sole right to declare war with, criticism of the American neutrality act which, he said, has not contributed to world peace or strengthened the nation's hand in international affairs during the past three years.

It provides for a constitutional amendment requiring a national referendum before war declared except in case of attack on the United States, its possessions or territories, or'the western hemisphere. Cites Undeclared Wars The president called attention to the trend toward undeclared wars and said that the white house.should be giv^n as free a hand as possible to act in the best interests of the national defense. He cited early American history and the seizure of American ships by French privateers during France's war with Great Britain. To cope with that situation, he said, it was necessary for the American government to authorize construction of a navy. That was accomplished at the direction of the president, although congress appropriated the necessary funds.
