United States Insists That She Need
Natal Power To Protect Her
Economic Interests
(By Associated Press)
GENEVA, July 6.--The crisis in th
negotiations of the Tri-partite nava
conference continued, if anything, i
more accentuated form today.
'Something is wrong at Geneva," ob
servers said tonight. ither the Aie
ricans or the Englishmen are not talk
ing the same language or their posi
tions regarding cruisers are so re
mote one from another, that it appear
exceedingly difficult, it not impossible
to put a finger on a compromise which
will satisfy equally the people and
governments of the United States and
Great Britain.
If a faithful account of the Geneva
negotiations ever is fritten, some ob-
servers feel that it will reveal to the
world that a great Anglo-American
tragedy has been enacted. The thread
of the play, judging from reliable ac-
counts in this--that Great Britain
which has held the mastery of the
seas for centuries, intends to main-
tain this mastery and can see neithe
justice ort wisdom! in a yuthful
nation across the sea, the United
States, wishing to lay down fleets
equalling those of Great Britain.
s Great Britain cntends that a high
cruiser strength is essential and vital
to te needs of her country, especially
to give assurance that Great Britain
shall not starve because of the cutting
off of .her food supplies at distant
The United States apparently gives
recognition to Britain's peculiar eco-
nomic position, but insists that Ame-
rica, like Britain, must maintain com-
munication with the outlying points
of the earth for those broad economic
reasons connected with the position of
the United States as a great world

Five New Power Boat
Records Established
(By Associated Press)
ALBANY, N. Y., July 6.-Five new
world speed records for power boats
were established on thme Hudson river
here today.
"Miss Spitfire V," owned by James
H. Rand, Jr., and driven by Ralph
Snoddy, of Los Angeles, made one
mile at the rate of 64.28 miles an
hours, upsetting the formerrrecord of
t60.11 miles. On a six-mile run, three
miles up and three miles downstream,
"Miss Spitfire" tore over the water at
a rate of 62.88 miles an hour, another
record perfomance. The craft is in
the 151 class for hydroplanes.
Miss Helen Hendshell, of White-
stont Landing, N. Y., set up two new
records for outboard motors. Driv-
hig the boat "Cute Craft Herself,"
with a four horsepower motor ' she
made one mile at a rate of 27.5 miles
an hour, and went six times over the
ourse at an average of 25.35 miles per.
hour. The previous record for one'
mile was 24.83, and for six miles 24.8.
Jay E. Wilkinson, placing an eight
horsepower outboard motor on "Cutel
Craft Herself" made six one-mile
tests at an average rate of 29.87 miles
an hour, compared with the former
record of 26.4.
All tests were timed by officials of

said, as the center of a great agri-

record of President Washington Luis,

energetic city of Sao Paulo, whose
administration is engaged in drastic
financial reforms, involving the stabi-
lization of the currency.
