determination to force a showdown

Tonight the president finds himself
confronted with a threat from import-

that a resolution would be put over

Not since the submarine issue was
raised has the president found himself I
in such a discouraging predicamut.

Rear-Admiral Explains Value of Cam.
Patrol, System; Endorses Forme'
Speaker's Theories
"Take the whole mobile army of te.
United States into the Yale boVl ad
each of them could have a. neat" de-
lared General Leonard Wood, wh6;
.vith Rear Admiral Robert K. Peary
ipoke on "Preparedness" to an aui.
m'ce of over 4,000 in ill auditorium
;fst evening under the auspices o
,hie local National Security Leau,*
branch.
General Wood's speechi was based
upon his view of America's inabl ty
to cope with the high grade of specal-
4zation attained by the other great na.-
linns in military matters. He pountit
cut that while this country has tre-
m0rdous resources, they are entrey
undeveloped, and that the miltia
should be under the federal. Instead,
6~ individual states authority, ifi its;.
was to be of practial aid in time of
weari.
"We have never nmet a first class 44-
ticon which was prepared for war,"
h st t d "a d w wo l no co p r:with them . , A t the close of the C ivil,
w ar -we were for the only time in our
hi. tory fully ready to meet invaer,,
and we won the respect of £aorope, as
was demonstrated by the quk ra-
ner in which Napoleon the Third grt
out of Mexico, with a surprisingly
small amount of diplomatic corre-
pon deuce."
"Our people love to talk of our ft-
developed military resources," h
said. "They are undeveloped, almost.
absolutely so. Numbers without train-
ing are practically useless. No Wol
v.,as ever frightened by the sie of a
flock of sheep. We are trusting to
Y umblers too much. We have the cour-
age and character, but we have nt
the organization necessary for pre-
paredness."v
"Throughout our history the falli.
of the volunteer system has be.4n de-
onstrated," General Wood ccntnu
"At first there has always been
spasm of patriotism, but this died a
and the use of bounties, and str
laws against desertion could not ke
'a people under armxs who werei
accustomed to discipline."K
The speaker urged an adopto
the Swiss miliary system. in Amer
for several reason,s chief among wh
was the fact that the discipline
volved would be good for the peo
b~oth morally and phyiclly. He C
tinned:
"We need discipline in this co
try to learn to accustom ourselves
orders, and we would also be a
through its use to effect an organi
tion of the mighty physical resours
which we have."
The introduction of a military tra
ing system would increase patri
ismn, do away with class distinti
and make .for national solidarity, br
cause the people would realize tW.
were doing 'something for their con
try.
A description of 'the courses l.
down in some of the. leading unv
sities, and an encouragement of t
plan mapped out at ldicgan, for
the basis for a porion of his sp,
in which he declared that therea
