ts of the leaders to regard ratiflea-;

For more than three hours, in a;

th the four power and naval treat-
s which he said would stick to-
ther to put the United States in a

cord figure of his own designed
show that superiority of speed arm-
neat and auxiliary craft would great-
'increase the relative strength of the
