TRUCE TO WORLD
First Lord of Admiralty Is
Willing to Stop Building
Warships for Year.
GERMANY HELD IN MIND
Clrnrchlll, Submitting Xaval Esti

He of Priceless Benefit In
LONDON". March 26. A naval holiday
for a year, as far as new construction
1 cnncwnwl, was the offer made to
the world today by Winston Spencer
Churchill. First Lord of the Admiralty,
when he submitted the British naval
estimates to the House of Commons.
This way. he says, the world would ob
tain almost instantaneous mitigation
r.f the thraldom involved by the evil
and Insensate folly of the acute rival
ry in armaments.
Scores of millions, he declaredyVrere
belnjr squandered each year without
making any real difference In the rela
tive naval strength of the nations. His
proposal, he argued, would involve no
alteration in the relative strength of
the world's navy.
Refereaee Made to Germany.
"We address this proposal to all na
tions and to no nation with more pro
found sincerity than to our great
neighbor over the North Sea," he added.
Mr. Churchill. In a special speech de
livered later in the House of Commons,
proposed that Germany and Great Brit
ain agree to cancel their programmes
of construction for the year 1914. He
suggested that the Influence of such
an agreement would be priceless and
measureless In giving a wider Inter
national scope to an arrangement for
the prevention of wasteful, purposeless
and futile folly.
Remedy Regarded as Only One.
The First Lord of the Admiralty said
he was convinced that this treatment
of the subject was the only way to
terminate one of the most stupid and
unnatural chapters in the history of
Mr. Churchill announced that the
British Admiralty had arranged to lend
to first-class British liners guns, am
munition and trained gunners to en
