1812 were the same, though on a larg-
er scale, thai those of the Revolution
andl we employed a total of 520000j
men against the small British force
which reached its maximum of 16,500
in the year 1814, at which time we
bad 236,000 men with the colors.
These startling figures show the val-
le of trained forces in war.
In 1861 nine-tenths of our small
Regular Army of 16,000 men was on
the frontier, and notwithstanding the
fact that the war pot had been boiling
for years the lack o preparedness en-
guled us in a domestic war the ruin-'
os'*effects of which are yet apparent
all over our South. With fifty thous-
and regulars on the Atlantic seaboard
the Rebellion could have been put
down in its infancy.
Pay [)early for Victory
A a result of our failure to make
reasonable preparations in peace time
we have paid dearly for victory in all
our struggles since the Revolution
and have wasted both life and treas-
ure. Our wars have been needlessly
prolonged and our victories unduly
delayed because we have fought with
untrained men and with materials
provided after the opening of hostil-
ities at a cost of many times their
peace time value. Our late war was
no exception in this respect.
Upon the advent of each war it has
hcen necessary to build up a fighting
machine and our methods have not'
always been the best. The necessity'
for Congressional action at the out-
set of each and the time required to
organize and train temporary forces
have prolonged our wars. Untrained
and inexperienced men have been
placed in high positions not only in
command of troops but in the pro-
curement of supplies and material.
politics have always played an injur-
ious parnt in each of our wars dlue'
prncipaily to the lack of prepared-

During the late war thecaverage
American soldier required 9 months'
training at home and in France be-
tore going into battle and the aver-
age American division spent- 10 or 11
months in training before going into
the line.- 'Our backwardness in thisj
war came anear wrecking the civiliza-
tioi of the whole world.
Congres sees Mistakes
Our present military policy as fin-!
ally adopted by Congress in 1920, was
designed to prevent a repetition of our'
mistakes and wastefulness of the past,
but there is grave danger of sliding
down hill again through sheer ignor-
ance on the part of many and the in-
ifference on the part of some. Our
military policy is not understood by
re majority of our people and this
plendid work of Congress is not fl-
ly appreciated. Our military policy
needs publicity. It must be "sold"'
to the people. There is a lot of is-
~;ionary work to be done. The world
was never more upset than it is to-
day by mistrust, jealousy, greed and
misunderstandings in the heart and
mind .of mankind.' These are the
things that bring war. While we are
at peace'in our own minds with the
whole world, we should take every
sane step to safeguard our future, for
in the event of another world confla-
pration we may eventually be embroil-
od just as we were in 1917.
We have never waged an unholy
war and never will do so. But if we:
want that eternal peace which carries
with it the exercise of human rights
we must be prepared to defend our-
selves and maintain peace.
