Urged for Men
Taft Requests Leave
Rotation for Soldiers
In Foreign Service
WASHINGTON, Jan. 7. - (P) -
Amid reports that the Army is mov-
ing to relieve troops in isolated out-
posts, Senate Democrats and Repub-
licans joined today in urging the es-
tablishment of a furlough system for
battle-weary men long overseas.
Senator Taft (Rep., Ohio) tol a
reporter he believed the War De-
partment should make some provi-
sion for short furloughs for men who
had seen at least two years of foreign
service. He suggested the possibility
of a rotation system which would let
one man out of four in a designated
unit come home for a month or more.
On his return, another would be given
Senator Radcliffe (Dem., Md.) said
he too, felt that arrangements could
be made for furloughs that would not
interfere with the war effort.
Congress heard informally that the
Army already has acted to replace
many of its garrisons in Alaska, the
Caribbean, Iceland and other out-
posts in this hemisphere.
Members of Congress said their
mail is full of appeals from parents
for furloughs for their sons, but most
pgislators thought no attempt would
ie made to enact legislation on the
subject. The general disposition was
to leave the decision to the high
Both Taft and Radcliffe said the
chief problem was use of shipping
that otherwise might be carrying
troops or supplies. Taft added that
there also was the question of wheth-
er experienced fighting units should
be broken up.

fortunes that befell a group of ASTP

assed mercilessly by the college's

hours due to Army regulations that
the men devote prescribed hours to
study outside of class.
Work on the show is continuing

TANKS IN THE WAR:
Prof. Miller Discusses New
Aspectsof Offensive Warfare
Different ways have been discov-
ered to meet and, in a large measure,
nullify the tank as an offensive weap-
on, according to a recent article writ-
ten by Prof. Henry W. Miller in the
Michigan Alumnus Quarterly Review.
Prof. Miller has been head of the
department of mechanism and en-
gineering drawing since 1921. A Col-
onel in the Ordinance Reserve Corps,
U.S.A., for many years he has been
active as an expert on artillery and
his services have been called upon by
the Army many times. He is the
author -of several books on military
subjects and has made many studies
of modern artillery.
Warfare Means Constant
In an article entitled "After the
Tank, What?" he says that the
science of warfare has never changed'
and never will. Warfare is a processj
of subjecting one's enemy to one's will
by violence, or the threat of it.
Prof. Miller lists four principles or
elements involved in the science of
warfare which can never change. The
first is that the addition of someI
hard object to the hand, an object
that would cut, pierce or bruise would
make the hand more effective in
harming one's enemy than the fist.
This is called "arming the hand."
Secondly, it was comprehended that
hand-to-hand combat was so danger-
ous that the slow, the dull-witted,
and the inexpert had little chance.
It was therefore very desirable to get
one's foe at as great a distance as
possible., This was done with the
bow - and - arrow, the javelin, the
throwing spear or the sling.
The third principle or element of
warfare which the human wits com-
prehended was the desirability to the
point of necessity of covering a very
vulnerable body with some kind of
protection, a shield, a barrier of
stones or wood, or the protection of a
tree or trench. '
The fourth element or principle
which is comprehended is psychologi-
cal rather than material. It is the
condition of disconcertion produced
in one's adversary by surprise or
speed of attack based on the principal
that if surprised or terrified the mind
seems to lose its capacity for quick
eu-ordination of efforts and may be
unable to adopt the right plan of de-
fense or attack in the short time al-
lowed and thereby become increas-
ingly vulnerable to attack.
The tank was first used in the
first World War. But it remained for
a very few men in the French, the
British, and the American armies to
see, even so recently as 1938, the part
that the tank might play in the ini-
tial stages of an all-out war. It
would be a device embodying all four
of the principles of warfare, that of
the armed hand, the lengthened arm,
protection and the disconcerting ef-
fect of speed of action, the equivalent
