Cites Eagle Boats in Urging Auto Man's Election to Senate.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 24.—Secretary Daniels, in a public statement today, urging Michigan voters to support the candidacy of Henry Ford for the United States Senate, declared naval officers of the United States and foreign countries had pronounced the Eagle boats produced at the Ford plant in Detroit as "next to the destroyer, the best weapon to exterminate the submarine." By next Summer, Mr. Daniels said, the Government expects to have a hundred or more of these new craft in the water.
In referring to Mr. Ford as a Senatorial candidate, the Secretary's statement says:
"In war he knows how to produce weapons to win peace, and in the problems to be settled after the war his practical judgment as Senator would be of the highest value."
