Idea for Navy
Washington, May 17. Secretary
Daniels today let go a verbal broadside
against the advocates of a general
staff for the nvy, declaring that they
sought to "Prussianize" the navp de !
jartment and make the civilian sec
retary a "rubber stamp." He told this
senate committee investigating the
navy's conduct of the war that "one
of Rear Admiral Sim's chief objects in
jfritlng his letter to January 7 and
bringing about this investigation was
to remove the navy, so far as possible,
ram civilian control." -.
Rear Admiral Sims' original charges
against the navy department howed
hostility toward certain officers and
a desire to damage the ranking of
ficers who directed naval operations
during the war, the naval secretary
declared, adding that "the evidence
has shown a desire to discredit the
secretary of the navy because he was
not a 'rubber stamp' secretary."
If congress wished to depart from
the "traditional American policy" of
dvilian control of the navy It should
do so "directly and clearly and with
out pretense," said Mr. Daniels, by
makini an admiral secretary of the
navy and a'member of the president's
cabinet, The most ardent aavocaieo
of the general staff system had not
advocated going so far, however, be
cause they wished to keep a "rubber
stamp" civilian as a figurehead in the
secretary's office, he declared.

All clues substantiate the belief "oi
authorities that the house breaking
was the work of professionals; Chief
Welsh said Monday and It was thought
probable that Green and Sullivan
would be released before the day is

thing that caused him to have Officer

come to Salem the night of the rob
beries, and that their aotions had di
rected suspicion to them. He did not
say whether he had additional infor

charge against them.

three shots at him, that apparently
went wild. Two blocks farther on the
burglar escaped In the darkness and

Soon after Chief Welsff arrived, and
with Moffitt and Morelock scoured
the outbuildings and territory skirting

the man was found. (

For Traffic Aid
Washington, May 17. The nation's
railroads, swamped with business, and
not yet on their feet after the long
period of federal control, turned hope
fully to the government today for re

With reports from industrial cent
ers showing several hundred thousand
cars held up because of insufficient
equipment and labor, the interstate
commerce commission was expected
to heed the appeal of the carriers
and take charge of the situation.
Railroad officials said there was
slight hope of - early improvement.
The great need Is to clear the tracks
of non-essentials and open- the way
for the necessities of life.
So great Is the traffic congestion,
according to reports that there is im
mediate danger of wholesale closing
of big industrial plants and the con
sequent cut ln production.

strength of reports laid before it by
the railway executives that the emer
gency justifies it, orders taking over
