A giant homecoming luncheon Saturday Session Called for Senate To Rush Measure Leaders Hope to Put Neutrality Revision to Vote by Wednesday WASHINGTON — 'AP» — Senator Peter Green 'D-RI' called on the .senate today to grant American merchant ships freedom of the seas and said thai the present neutrality act was one of "appeasement toward Hitler" which had proved futile. Scarcely 24 hours earlier, the navy had announced the Mnkinc of the destroyer Reuben James, on convoy duty west of Ireland. A supplementary announcement last night 44 of the ships company had been resnied. Green, a member of the senate foreign relatioas commits, was the first scheduled speaker as the senate entered its sixth day of debate on the administration bill knocking out the present neutrality law pro- visioas forbidding the arming of merchant ships and preventing them from entering belligerent ports or combat areas. "The proposed amendment to the neutrality act simply restores the rights which we have always exercised under international law and under American law." Green said In an address prepared for senate delivery. "We will again be free to act as free men and assert and enforce our right* to the freedom of the seas. This does not mean going to war. War may follow, but It is less likely to follow if we repeal these provisions than if we keep bound to them. "The so-called neutrality act was an act of appeasement toward Hitler in the hope that if we were not only neutral but also were willing to give up Home of our rights as a neutral, he would respect our remaining rights. The hope has proved futile." Leaders called the senate into an unusual Saturday session today in an effort to pass the neutrality revision legislation not later than next Wednesday Senator Wheeler Mont.), a leading opponent of the measure, told reporters, however, that action was unlikely before next weekend. Wheeler conceded that the opposition would poll only 32 or 43 votes against the legislation, while 40 would be required for a clear majority of the senate membership. The board revision was recommended by the senate foreign relations committee as a substitute for the house- approved bill limited to arming merchant ships.
