Hawaii Naval Bhattoft to -s Crnafttot
la Paelfle Oeaaa. : -
Washington, Not, IS. The president
haa approved the recommendation of
the joint army and navy board for
making Pearl harbor, in the 'Hawaiian
Islands, the greatest naval station in
the Pacific In doing this, It waa eoa-
aidered that ft temporary naval station
only would be constructed at Olongapo,
and that the proposed improvement in
Manila harbor would be abandoned.
Tbie'will leave the protection of the
ports to the army.
The determination to minimise the
fortification in the Philippines and to
make Pearl harbor ft groat naval sta
tion was aot because of any intention
of withdrawing American control from
the island. It waa purely strategical,
it was said. For years Scree contra
veray has been waged as to whether
the principal fortification tn the Phil-
ippinea should bo located at uiongapo
or t'avite. The naval officers favored
Olongapo and the amy Manila bay.
The bis floating- dock is now at Olon

This, in effect, means that the cer
