ASKS NAVY SECOND TO NONE-Urging a navy that will make
the United States second to none, Admiral Harold Stark (right), chief
of naval operations, testified at the Senate naval hearings; he estimated
that such naval expansion would cost about $3,486,000,000 over a
five-year period. With Stark is Capt. C. M. Cooke of the office of naval
operations. A bitterly contested fight is expected on the floor of the
Senate when the final naval bill comes up for consideration.
