Britten plans to introduce a bill today based upon figures provided him by Secretary Adams. Exhaustive hearings will be held in order to determine," Britten said, "if the • expenditure of I 1,000,000,000 in the next eight] years will properly provide I for J national defense in an emergency." The bill would authorize 73,500 tons of light six-inch gun cruisers at a cost of $123,300,000; 5,500 tons in destroyers, to cost $150,000,000; 42,100 tons in submarines to cost $122,000,000, arid 69,000 tons in aircraft car- iers to cost $95,000,000.
