Special to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and the New York Times. WASHINGTON, May 9. In a clash In the House today with Representa tive French of Idaho, chairman of the navy appropriations subcommit tee of the appropriations committee, Chairman Britten of the naval affairs committee declared that his so-cailed "billion-dollar" building bill to bring the Cmted States navy up to London naval treaty limits by 1940 represented the views of the administra tion. The House accepted the statement with surprise. French did not challenge it, but went ahead with his ar gument that for a nation whose an nual navy building program for the last eight years had been less than Ja0.000.000. "It is indefensible that, upon ratification of the treaty, it should mount to $125,000,000 to 9150, 000.000 a year." Britten Starts Clah. The clash during which Britten made his statement started when he demanded to know if French wss at tempting to present the administra tion's views in urging a conservative building program. "In anything I may say here shall express my personal views," re plied French. "The gentleman is chairman of the committee and is in touch with the various departments, particularly the department having in charge this particular bill, and is supposed to express the sentiments of the de partment," insisted Britten. "Would the gentleman say that in what he had in mind when he in- triduced his bill?" French asked. Got Fgures From Adams. "1 thank the gentleman for that thought. Yes. all the figures in my bill were received from the secretary of the navy. Every figure and every dollar in that bill." "Does the gentleman mean to say that it is the thought of the admin-isration that a bill along the lines he has introduced, carrying all the obligations involved in the money total, carrying the program of construction up to the limit is that the policy the administration has approved? Does he went the House to understand that?" French persisted. "Tea, I do." replied Britten, "and if that is not correct, then the administration would never have agreed to the signing of the London naval treaty. Where does the gentleman think I got the figures? They came from the department- Britten Introduces BiH. Britten introduced the bill In question today. It provides for beginning by 1936, 240,200 tons cf new naval ships, which, added to those already authorized, will mean an expenditure of $936,593,000 within the next 10 years; It will take this, Britten says, to bring the navy of the United States up to the parity with Great Britain as provided in the London treaty, now awaiting ratification by the Senate. French held that the one basic accomplishment of the trade conference was the '"limit" fixed upon tonnage of various types. This limit, lie said, should not be regarded as a mandate but aa a figure above which no nation should build. WOMAN LEADER SCORESGRUNDY Former P. O. S. A. Head Hits Record Of Senator.

John Maseftell is England's new poet laureate. The poet of the sea and the English countryside, who tramped the streets of New York where he was a porter in a saloon as a young man, tonight was appointed by King George as successor to Spenser, Ben Jonson, Wordsworth and Tennyson in the highest literary post in Britain. The choice of Masefield, which was recommended to the king by Premier ipyrtght. 1910. by New Tork Time.

DRY BODY BORN OF GOM 'BRIDE Anti-Saloon League Chief Repeats Idea To Senators. (Continued From Page One.) conform to the Federal corrupt prac tices act from the beginning," he as serted. "We were the first organization that did that." He added that in 1928 the National and state organizations of the Anti- Saloon League had reported expendi tures of 17S.000. of which 1100,000 was for the National league. He repeated that the league's political ac tivities represented only about five per cent of the total. Senator Blaine then read from a speech by McBride which said that about 90 per cent of the league's activities "cluster about elections." "They do cluster about elections," McBride replied. "That means it has close relationship. It does not mean it was election work." Clever Linguist Says Blaine. "You are very excellent in the choice of language," Blaine commented. "But I don't believe you are fooling any one." McBride testified that he thought the organization had furnished information to Government officials concerning prohibition appointments but he said he was unable to give any specific Instances. Pressed by Blaine he explained that the information probably was given in personal interviews or by telephone. I do not recall any specific case but in a general way I would say that it had been done." "That's a convenient way to sup press a fact" Blaine retorted.

L MOB IN TEXAS BURNSNEGRO Court Building Fired, Crowd Battles Guardsmen. (Continued From Page One.) as the flames swept through and destroyed the building. With the flames crackling up over the $60,000 structure, the mob fought furiously with Texas rangers, police and firemen for several hours. They slashed fire hose and assai'ed firemen. Even Captain Frank Hamer, two-gun Texaa ranger who is known as the official "mob buster'' of ihe state, could not forestall the rioting. The trial of Hughes opened this morning and Captain Hamer, with four other rangers, was present because of the ill feeling in the town against the Negro. The menacing attitude of the courtroom crowd became so noticeable that the room was cleared. Sight of Mrs. Farlow, who was attacked, being carried on a stretcher into the building, waa as a spark dropped in dynamite. The rioters seized paving stones, bricks and sticks, showering their missiles through the courthouse windows and doors. Realizing the mob was beyond control. Captain Hamer hurried the trembling Negro to the big vault in the basement and locked him in. He and his rangers grouped about the vault entrance to protect their prisoner. Woman Leads Attack. Just as Hughes waa locked inside the eteei-walled chamber, an unidentified woman, screaming, incited the mob to attack. The mob. with clubs and stones, set upon the rangers, knocked them down and trampled them. Some one in the mob dumped over a pile of rags and rubbish. A match was touched to the pile and the rioters raced for the street. Captain Hamer and his rangers, bruised and torn, were barely able to get out of the inferno. The flames leaped up through the building and it seemed for a moment that the county Judge and a number of attorneys would be trapped. Firemen raised a ladder and the men made their way safely to the street from a window. MARTIAL LAW LOOMS. AUSTIN. Tex May 8.

Laird, will consider the grievances of any driver or driver, either personally of by a representative who is an employe of the company for which the driver or drivers work, if the same cannot be satisfactorily adjusted by the driver or drivers, or said representative, with the superintendent of the garage from which the driver operates." Contempt of court charges against 23 strikers and their committee members, now pending, are to be dropped, the cab companies agreeing to "use their best endeavors" to have litigation against any of the drivers or their representatives discontinued. Ballots are to be mailed at once to the strikers. Until the result of the voting is known, the companies will not engage any drivers. All ballots must be returned before noon. May 15, next Thursday.

A statement from Chairman Si- ford of the strikers' committee, ac companying copies of the agreement and the ballots mailed to the strikers, contains the following: "A majority of the executive committee of the striking cab drivers favor this proposal. The executive Committee all feel that an opportunity should be given to th drivers to accept this proposal and therefore submit the same to the drivers for their vetes." The parley at which the agreement was adopted by the strikers' committee and the Parmelee Company was held in the offices of Attorney Frank B. Ingersoll, cab company counsel, in the Union Trust building. The strikers were represented by their committee and Attorney Henry Ellenbogen and Rev. James R. Cox, pastor of St. Patrick's Catholic Church. Representing the cab companies were Attorneys Ingersoll. Leon Hickman and C. K. Robinson and Vice President Laird.

Cannot Expect Record Years Always, Bethlehem Chairman Says. Special to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and the Chicago Tribune. NEW YORK, May 9. American industry is passing through a period of severe test but it shows every evidence of emerging with flying colors, Charles M. Schwab, chairman of the Bethlehem Steel Corporation, declared today in an address before the American Iron and Steel Institute. The year 1930, Schwab predicted, will be one of normal progress. It is not likely tochallenge the record of last year, but, the Industrialist declared, last year was an abnormally good one. The current year should compare favorably "with normally good years, he declared. James A. Farrell. president of the United States Steel Corporation; Horace S. Wilkinson, president of the Crucible Steel Company, and other heads of steel companies all agreed with Schwab that the present weaker price tendencies and reduced operations looked important only in comparison with the record- breaking production and better prices of a year ago. "As a matter of fact" Schwab said, "business is a lot better today than it was six or nine months ago. because of the inevitable house-cleaning which has taken place. We cannot expect record years all the time. Our present rate of operations, in many other years, would have been considered a most satisfactory rate." Farrell Also Optimistic-Schwab spoke of the steel trade as the Industry that more than any other "has met the difficulties re sulting from the greatest stock market collapse in history." Schwab did not refer directly to the biggest recent news development in industry the Bethlehem Steel-Youngstown Sheet and Tube merger. The financier declared mergers are a natural development in economic progress and declared that they promised benefit to both industry and the public, adding that "the most logical purpose of business expansion is to serve the public more effectively." "All present indications are that 1930 will prove a year of normal business," Schwab concluded. During the meeting officials of the companies stated that the Republic Steel Corporation Is now operating at 75 per cent of capacity, and the Crucible Steel Corporation at 80 per cent. James A. Farrell, concurring in the views of Schwab as to the business outlook, further said that the steel business had little to do with the financial situation; that as regards the recent tariff, the steel Industry 'could compete with the rest of the world on an equal basis. Tom M. Girdler, chairman, and president of Republic Steel, and L. E. Block, chairman of Inland Steel, both expressed favorable views regarding the business outlook. George M. Verity, chairman of the American Rolling Mills Company, predicted a "conservatively active year." FOREIGN NEWS BRITISH FAVOR U. S.
