Washington, D. C. President Cool

battleships, Secretary of the Navy Wil

Wilbur said the proposed alteration,
costing $6,500,000, would restore the
navy to the 5-5-3 rptio of the Washing
ton arms treaty. He informed the
committee, however, - that the presi
dent, after due deliberation, had de
cided the expenditure was in "conflict
with hi3 financial program."
Great Britain is the only world pow
er that has made an official protest
against the elevation of guns, it was
revealed by the state department in
response to congressional demands for
Information on the subject. The pro
test was made In 1923, when the sub

Japan did not consider that gun ele
vation was a violation of the treaty,
the letter said.
President Coolidge's position against
elevation of the big guns of the Amer
ican battleships was supported by
Chairman Borah of the senate foreign 1
relations committee, who said in a
statement it was better to waive ad
vantage technically given by the arms
treaty than to give justification for;
violation of the treaty by others.
