SENATOR PFLAS WILSON
1,INREPLY TO STTEMENT
CHAMBERLAIN SAYS PRESIDENT
MALIGNED HIM; DISCLAIMS
Washington, Jan. 24.-In a dramatic
three hour speech to the senate today
Senator Chamberlain, chairman of the
military committee, replied to Presi-
dent Wilson's statement that he had
distorted the facts in charging that the
government had broken down in its
war preparations. He declared the
President had grossly maligned him,
and he not only defended, but em-
phatically reiterated his assertions
made in a recent address at New York.
Has No Personal Rancor
The senator disclaimed and person-
al rancor against either the President
or Secretary Baker, saying his only
motives were patriotic, to rouse the
country and to speed up the war by
wiping out inefficiency. In support of
his position he cited numerous inci-
dents of alleged inefficiency in connec-
tion with army ordnance,. clothing,
supplies and sanitation, brought out
during the military committee's war
When he concluded, Senator Kirby,
a member of the military committee,
replied on behalf of the administration
flatly contradicting the chairman's
assertion that facts brought out in the
investigation proved the war depart-
ment inefficient. Then the senate ad-
journed until Monday to cut off further
Senator Chamberlain detailed in his
speech what he declared was proof of
army inefficiency. He asserted that
not only was the President ignorant of
the truth about conditions, but that
Secretary Baker also was misled, chal-
lenging the senate and the country to
inquire and then deny his assertion.
"I am going to show that the hund-
reds and thousands of men dying in
the cantonments are due to the war
department," he declared.
"I am going to call attention to the
statement of Suregon-General Gorgas
that nearly all epidemics could have
been prevented if the war department
had been effective," stated the senator.
SOLDIERS AT CAMP GREENE
MAKE GOOD USE OF LIBRARY
Soldiers at Camp Greene are pat-
ronizing the library of the camp ex-
tensively, according to a letter receiv-
ed recently by William B. Bishop, lib-
rarian of the University, from the lib-
rarian of the camp, F. L. D. Goodrich
The collection of books has been re-
ceived largely from Ann Arbor and
the from Boston public library. The
building is considered one of the best
in camp, and on account of its warmth
and comfort it is extremely popular.
"It has surprised me how many
times I find some non-fiction title
asked for," said Mr. Goodrich.
'"Recently a copy of the Koran was
desired, together with a beginners'
Latin. book,. which were supplied. I
could not find a volure of Herrick's
poems, however. The oly books in
Italian which we had were a complete
edition of Dante's works sent me from
the University. This seems to satisfy
a soldier, an Italian, who was seek-
ing something in that language. I
have also been asked for books in
Bohemian and in Russian," said Mr.
