t THE MORNING OREGONIAN, WEDNESDAY, MAY 26, 1920 9 SECRETARY DUELS . BAPS SEiTE BOARD Old Grudges of Officers Aired, Says Chief. 4 CHA1RMAM MAKES CHARGE Letter From Admiral A. M. Knight Withheld Irora Committee, Virtual Accusation. WASHINGTON, May -J4. Secretary Daniels accused the senate naval in vestigating committee today ol "dig King: up ancient history" and "airing the grievances and grudges of dis gruntled naval officers." The accusa tions came during a long series of questions from Chairman Hale re garding disappearance in 1914 from the files of the navy department of a rletter from Kear-Admiral Bradley Kiske on na.val oreoared neps. Sir. Daniels said he had no objec tion to prolonging the hearings by going back as far as 1914. but sa.id he did not see how the matters referred to had any bearing on the question of the naval conduct of the war. Chair man Hale replied that he was seeking to show that Secretary Daniels was -warned by his chief technical ad visers that the American navy was not prepared for war previous to the entry of the United States into the war. WlrbfaolrilnK Virtually barged. The. chairman virtually charged Mr. Daniels at another point with having withheld from the senate a letter from Rear Admiral Austin M. Knight, written in August, 1914, advising the immediate withdrawal of American battleships from Mexican waters and the preparation of the navy for pos sible eventualities resulting from the world war, then just beginning. To support his contention. Senator Hale read a senate resolution asking for communication from the navy gen eral board regarding war prepara tion of the navy and a reply from Mr. Daniels declaring that he had no com munication bearing on the subject. Admiral Knight's letter, the chairman said, was in Mr. Daniels' possession at the time and bore vitally on the sub ject of preparedness. Secretary Daniels in reply said he had not considered Admiral Knight's letter as an official communication from the general board, had not con sidered that it related to preparation of the navy but was rather an elabora tion of Rear Admiral Kihke's insist ence that the battleships in southern waters be brought home at ones. Old Controversy Renewed. Cross examination centered largely today around the old controversy be tween Secretary Daniels and Rear Admiral Kiske regarding reorganiza tion of the navy department and plac ing responsibility and authority for the entire direction of the navy in the hands of a naval officer. Characterizing Admiral r'iske as a "monumental egotist." who "bored me to exhaustion." the secretary said the officer was actuated by a desire tod "Prussianize" the navy. Chairman Hale announced that, in view of the gravity of the charges. Admiral Kiske would be given an opportunity to ap pear later and defend himself. LOS ANGELES GIRL ... GAINED 18 POUNDS Miss Sibyl Mitchell Praises Tanlac for Her Present Splendid Health. The remarkable reconstructive pow ers of Tanlac are further evidenced in the case of Miss Sibyl Mitchell, a popular young- lady, residing with her mother at 2725 Fairmont street, Los Angeles, Cal. "Before I began taking Tanlac." said fellas Mitchell, -I was in e dreadful 'state of health and my condition could not possibly have been much worse. J was awfully blue and despondent, and had just about given up all hope of ever being well again. But now, after taking only four bottles of Tan lac. I feel as well as I ever did in my life, and have actually gained eight een pounds In weight. "Three years ago I suffered a nerv ous breakdown. Then, on top of this, about a year ago I had a severe at tack of the flu, and was left in such a rundown, weakened condition I was in bed for four months, unable to walk a step. My appetite left me entirely, and I was so weak I could hardly raise my hands, and it was even an effort for me to talk. I was so awful nervous that the least little noise or excitement caused me to tremble like a leaf, and it was ut terly impossible for me to get a ood night's sleep. "I had tried many different medi cines, but nothing seemed to do me a particle of good. At last a girl friend urged me to try Tanlac, which I did. and 1 commenced feeling better with the first bottle. As I continued tak ing it I continued to improve, until now I have a fine appetite, can eat anything I want and everything agrees with me perfectly. My nerves are as steady as can be, and I sleep so soundly my mother says she can hardly wake me in the morning. I just feel so good and- am so full of life my friends say I am like a dif ferent girl. It is a real pleasure for me to recommend Tanlac after the wonderful benefits I have received from it." Tanlac is sold in Portland by the Owl Drug Co.
