The pith of his speech was contained
In this paragraph:
"Now. we any In all friendship and

ii.any: If you will put off MgtaatMJ to

we will put off In ahsolute koimI fnllh

If Great llrltaln and (iermany took
the lead, Mr. Churchill added, there
was n kooiI prospect of success In get
tlnn other powera to agrsj to a iinval

of ii burden of minimis of dollars.
Mr. Churchill first advocated a iinval

speaking In the house of commons on

not accept his offer

I opinion that If Great Hritaln and Ger-
I many took the lend all the other great

I would nil he Just ns great nnd as sound

"Isn't It likely that so great and

effect on the naval construction of the
United States nnd Japan? Scores of
millions would he rescued for the prog

Mr Churchill ndded. "That Is tho
