Britain Plans
Expansion Of
War Facilities
Industrial Mobilization For
Instant Readiness For
Conflict Is Reason
LONDON, March 3. - (/P) -- Great
Britain's government announced to-
day a vast immediate expansion of
its army, navy and air forces and
industrial mobilization for instant
readiness in case of war.
A white paper, or government re-
port, said the rearmament and in-
creased national defenses were made
necessary by complications of the in-
ternational situation, combined with
a "deplorable and undeniable" world-
vide expansion of armaments.
The United States, Germany, Bel-
gium, France, Italy and Soviet Rus-
sia were listed as having already em-
barked on similar plans.
Cites Dangers
Citing "dangers of war" and pro-
claiming a necessity for means of de-
fense against aggression and enforce-
ment of collective security, the white
paper disclosed :
"A fresh examination of the posi-
tion, made last summer and autumn,
led to the conclusion that it was
necessary to make further changes in
the Royal Air Force and speed up
measures contemplated for moderni-
zation of the army and navy, to pro-
vide as rapidly as possible necessary
reserves of stores and ammunition
and equipment and organize indus-
trial resources of the country in such
a way as to allow immediate ex-
pansion of productive capacity in case
of an emergency."
Parliament will debate the white
paper next week.
Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin
will name a new cabinet minister as
deputy chairman of the imperial de-
fense committees to supervise, co-
ordinate and control the huge arma-
ment expansion.
Need of Arms Stressed
The urgency of Britain's rearma-
ment was emphasized by the an-
nouncement that the government
would attempt to prevent extrava-
gant profits to the munitions indus-
try, but that "it will be important,
however, to see that the work is not
delayed by over-elaboration of finan-
cial safeguards."
The government conceded virtual
collapse of naval limitations as reg-
ulated by the Washington and London
treaties, ;denounced by Japan and ex-
piring at the end of this year.
The government report announced
plans to'lay down the keels for two
new capital ships in 1937, addition of
6,000 men to the navy, 4,000 men to
the army and 250 planes to the air-
The white paper announced that
modernization of Britain's existing
battleships would be continued.
Five cruisers will be included in
the 1936 building program, in the
scheme to bring up the total of Brit-
ain's cruisers to 70, of which 60 will
be under age and 10 over age.

IOWA CITY, Ia.,-Substitution of
a pass-fail system for the present
method of grading, "A" to "E," would
not meet approval of most University
of Iowa professors, a survey of repre-
sentative faculty members indicates.
Reason given were: that the pres-
ent method supplies incentive; that
it affords better chance for the pro-
fessor to appraise the students' abili-
ty; that the grades show a student
exactly where he is deficient;dand
that the "D" grade is enormously use-
f ul in exposing the capable idler.
