by two announcements from London
and Washington on the same day.
Prom Washington comes the state
ment that the Pacific fleet will pron-

Atlantic fleet. From London came tho
announcement that Great Ilritaln will
reduce her naval budtvet by $70,000, -000,

of competition with America's naval

with the proposed program of con

Pacific There will no longer be any
question by the l!rlt-:h, as "who U

The reports from Washington that
America is considering putting a fieri
' n the Pacific Is regarded here as in
dicating that the United States wants
t impress Japan with her naval
strength. The presence of a big Am
erican fleet on the Pacific would, prob
ably Influence Japan that war with
America at the present time is not
feasible, experts believe. America'
Pacific fleet will probably take over
