Speech, Shall Britain Dictate Our Sea Policy? Speech of Hon. Joseph E. Ransdell of Louisiana in the United States Senate, Thursday, July 20, 1922.

OM I 4/29/8 Cover title displays: "There can be stronger tribute tot he efficacy of the measures which it is proposed to take to aid American shipping than the fact that our chief competitors on the high seas are so strongly opposed to having us adopt those measures. Every admonition, eve5ry warning, every threat that comes from froeign sources argues the value of the legislation contemplated from the American standpoint. . . . Shall we play the game of our commercial rivals by stifling legislation to establish a merchant marine of our own for the national and industrial protection? Shall we allow Great Britain to dictate our sea policy and leave us in commercial bondage for generations to come? Shall we permit her to set up on the high seas a notice reading: 'BRITISH PROPERTY! AMERICANS KEEP OFF!'"
