Of Garand Semi-Automatic Gun
In support of the Army and.Marine
Corps' decision to rely on the Garand
semi-automatic rifle as its standard
infantry weapon, Col. Henry W. Mil-
ler, ordnance authority and chairman
of the engineering mechanism and
drawing department, asserted yester-
day that the "Army. has not and
never will arbitrarily refuse to test
submitted designs that conform to
Certain popular magiazines, accord-
ing to Col. Miller, have,tperhaps with-
out realizing it, given the public un-
fair presentation of the Army's posi-
tion and of the competing weapons.
Johnson Gun 'Unsatisfactory'
"It should be pointed out," Col.
Miller said, "that the inventor of the
much-discussed Johnson rifle, has
never chosen to comply with Army
requirements regarding the enclosure
of the barrel in wood, thus gaining
a seeming advantage in continuous
fire accuracy, but in actuality ren-
dering the gun unsatisfactory for us-
age under combat conditions."
Enclosure of the barrel in wood pro-
tects the gun against the many severe
blows it suffers and protects the
soldier from grasping a very hot
piece "f metal. It is therefore im-
perative that an army rifle be so en-
closed. This is an important point,
commented Col. Miller. and it ac-
unts for the greater accuracy of the
Johnson rifle whose barrel cools di-
rectly in the air, and as a result, has
a slighter tendency to sag.
18 Years Of Tests
The U.S. Army's choice of the
Garand rifle has met with the in-
evitable controversy as to whether
being decided on in 1936 as superior
to many other proposed designs."
Claims ,Cost Lower
"Additional reasons for not adopt-'
ing another gun at this time are,"
Col. Miller maintained, "the cost of
the Garand is being progressively
lowered, and no factories are now
tooled to produce Johnson rifles in
great quantity nor does the threat
of the preesnt national emergency
permit the extensive operations which
would undoubtedly be necessaryto
enter into mass production of any
