' TOO HIGH IN THE NAVY^

(Per Press Association — Copyright)

LONDON. February 9. More frequent foreign cruises are being considered with a view to' reduc- • ing the marriage rate in<lhe Navy. It has been found that the average rateS of pay are sufficient for bachelor comforts, but are inadequate for a married . seaman and family. Home service' encourages marriage, and subsequently discontent. A protest against the decision will • probably be made. This proposed step, which would place an official • premium on immorality and rob the country of a vigorous new generation, is regarded as a striking confession of the inadequacy of naval pay.
