Chairnial lHays, of House Military
Affairs ('onaniIttee to Meet President
Washington, Oct. 26.-The army de-
fense program was up for considera-
tion at a conference today between
President Wilson and Chairman Hay,
of the house military affairs commit-
tee. The program as framed by Sec-
retary Garrison already has been ap-
proved by the president in its general
outlines. The conference was one of
a series to be held this week for com-
pleting the details.
At a previous conference, Mr. Hay
was said not to have approved all
of the details of the plan. Senator
Chamberlain, chairman of the senate
committee, also probably will confer
with the president this week. He has
been quoted as approving the army
program in its main essentials.
