Night Editor-HOWARD F., SHOUT
ThisĀ° naval treaty is beginning to
"be a problem for the average man
ast well as for the Senate, but for
dfferent -reasons. The members of
the, Senate seem to be very dog-
mfatically for or against the treaty,
and their problem is to force the
ratification or refusal, as the casef
may be, of the agreement in the
forthcoming "special session. The
avNerage man, on the other hand, is
vengaged in ;the very" serious busi-
n"-tess -of attempting to find out -what
the treaty is all :about,. and -which
.I4nator is right concerning it.
In lall -the welter 'of discussion
conticering tonlnage and armament,
coastline and colonies, the one
clear fact is that each country is
tryingto limit naval power only to
the.."extent .that' "will not be .too
dangerous, to the, maintenance of
pts poitical-and-.commercial inde-
pe8ndence. As a result each country.
Pis =guilty of a tendency, to belittle
the needs of other nations and to
magnify its own requirements. This
is only natural. The question -then
becomes one of "comparing the
judgments of the delegates of. the
respective countries to the recent
London. conference. We may .as-
sume, in the first place, that the
'President and his advisors did not
choose our nation's representatives
without great care, that the men
chosen were known to be-naval ex-
' perts with high quality of good.
jutdgment and vision. They were,
indeed, the pick of the lot. It is
asking too much, therefore, to 'sug-
gest that we consider these men as
inferior, to any great extent, to the
"delegates from any other, of the
powters.f American interests were
' fully protected.
However, 'we must not be, un-
7 min dful of the ,fact that the naval
"treatyY was not as advantageous a
ones as might have been created,
4that many of our legislators may
be 'finding fault not'with the pro-
tection of American interests as
compared to those of the other
countries, but with the ideals and
ideas on which the whole treaty
"was "founded. It is possible that
some such thought was in the mind
of Senator Royal S. Copeland of
N 3ew 'York when he answered a
query concerning his attitude to-
ward the agreement with the ques-
tion,, "What do you think of count-
erfeit money." Was the treaty a
poor substitute for the real thing?
$We do not think so. It may have
been expedient to drop some of the
alldforms which had been planned
in naval armaments; but in essence
