GOETHALS OF SHIPPING BOARD BT T Must Reconcile Their Differences on Emergency Shipbuilding Plan or Quit the Public Service — Gigantic ■ Shipbuilding Program is Held Up as These Men < Quarrel—United States Navy in Splendid Condition,) ! International News Service: Waahlngton, D. C, July 18— Senator Smoot of Utah, thia afternoon introduced a reaolution calling on Preaident Wilaon for a statement of the facta regarding the row between Oen. Goethals and Chairman Denman over the construction of,the big merchant shipping fleet. At the request of Senator Chamberlain, the reaolution went over until tomorrow. BY JOHN EDWIN NEVIN, I. N. S. Staff Correspondent. Washington, D. C, July 18—President Wilson will be asked to remove from the public service botb William Denman, chairman ot the federal shipping board, and .Major General Geo. W. Goethals, head of the Emergency ship corporation, if they do not immediately reconcile their differences. Both officials were bitterly criticized ln congressional and official circles lutely hold up the plant to create a luteyl held up the plan to create a great fleet of American merchant vessels, absolutely ls Interfering with the successful operation of the war against Germany. Congressional leaders take tbe position that, unless the quarrel cap be patched up and ah immediate start made on the shipping program, tbe U. S. shortly will find Itself unable to maintain its army in the field let alone carrying reinforcements to France. Chairman Denman has flatly told the President that the entire responsibility rests upon General Goethals. He declares that Goethals has discussed publicly a program of steel and wood ship construction and ot the creation of two government owned and operated ship yards, which have no foundation in fact. The general's propositions are in no way concrete, Denman asserts. Until tbey are made so, Denman told the President, the shipping board cannot consider them, let alone sanction them. He claims tbat although some $600,000,000 Is Involved in the plans as set forth by General Goethals, the shipping board to without the first details of tbe fabricating scheme. If General Goethals will furnish the facts, Denman said today, the ahlpping board will meet and consider them and will "talk them over" with General Goethals. Little surprise will be shown In official circles if General Goethals finally retires from his post as head of the emergency corporation, althougb a determined effort was being made again to get him and Denman to bury the hatchet and work together. Meanwhile it is certain that if definite action Is not taken very soon the Presi dent will be asked to remove both -men. Army and navy officials arc just beginning to realize the extent to which the operations in France depend 011 the gathering together of new shipping to replace that being sent to the bottom by the German submarines. Estimates on file1 at the war college and with the general staff of the navy, show that for every man placed on French soil an average of 25 tons must be figured as .necessary to be carried across to maintain him tor a resanoble time, supply him with aru\s and clothing and to transport him to the front and back again. This enormous quantity of supplies must be safeguarded both, ways by the navy as the recent loss of the steamer Kan- sen conclusively shows. The navy has taken over entirely control of all transports and supply ships. All are In command of naval officers and are armed by naval gun crews- In addition destroyers and cruisers act as convoys. The navy is working night and day to add to its destroyer strength ln anticipation of tbe shipping board furnishing a large number of new transports and cargo vessels, an anticipation which it now seems will not be realized for many months. The navy also Is rushing work on its fleet of lib foot submarine chasers and on some of a larger type, all of which can eventually be utilized to release destroyers for transport guard duty. And officials point out that most of this work will lose tta force If the shipping board quarrel is not Bottled immediately. Naval officiala pointed out today that tbe navy at present Is ln better shape than ever before in Its history. It bas to be to maintain the longest Une of communication in the history of warfare. Its 100 aviators, the first armed American force to set foot on French soil, today to ready tor active service as the eyes of the squadrons operating ln European waters. Even tho most ancient type of war vessel In commission is In better shape than ever before, officials point out. And this is due to work performed right bere in Washington by officers wbo have labored nlgbt and day to remedy defects tbat became painfully ap- 'parent with the entry ot the United States into the war. 'The navy was never better prepared for any emergency," said an official today. "That was shown by its work ln getting the Pershing expedition across. If other departments will co-operate there will be no tragedies." 1422 of 3834 Enrolled Men Claim Exemption; Protests Renewed on Quota of City The local draft board has compiled from tbe registration cards on file in tbelr office some valuable statistics and of interest to all subject to draft in the Fourth district.

It was announced todaV on apparently good authority tbat a readjustment of quotas for districts for tbe first draft was under way and is expected tb reduce the number drafted to about 350 for the fourth district. Chairman B. F. Weybrecht of the local board has made a vigorous protest against the drafting according to the original population as made by tbe census of Uie draft commission, stating tbat this would be unfair and an unjuat discrimination against Alliance aad many other Ohio cities hy padded population estimates. These protests have gone to Governor Cox and alao to Waahlngton. enforced will aid considerably In relieving the draft burden in a number of Obio cltlee lo supply Canton and Akron. Despite the report that, Provost Marshal General Crowder at Washington the governor to change Ohio's net quotas on the basis of population to be determined by tbe gov* ernor. Governor Cox again said that present quotas were fixed in accordance with rules at Washington and that determination of existing figures was made compulsory by the war department. A plea that Gov. Cox not permit any change ln the method of appor-: tionlng Ohio's quota was received st the executive office from A. C. Beales, of Burton, Geauga county. Beales requested thst existing estimates remain unchanged, not only in justice to the agricultural districts but also as affecting America's efficiency In performing ber great task of feeding the allies." Beales feared that a change in quotas would throw upon the rural districts more than tbelr fair proportion ot the draft. Cox Favora Aliens Conscription.
