IF WE GO TO WAB
War with Mexico apeara now to be
inevitable. There ls a bare posit
Dlllty that lt may be averted, but
lt ie not at all likely. Carranza, the
first chief, will,, if war ls averted,
have to show that ho possesses .more
ibrain capacity and greater leadership
than has so far.been recognized. Un
fortunately the vast majority of. the
' Mexicans are illiterate and they
actually believe it posible for Mexico
te whip the United States. Cerrau
za's popularity as a leader depends
very largely upon the adoption of
prevailing Ideas and opinions. This
being true, it can be understood that
his reply to the Washington note
will be framed In accordance with
public demands. Besides, it is not
hard to see thai iie is on the vergo
of losing lie hold upon the people
as the result of the agreement with
?nr'asniaston permitU?g tho punitive
expedition into Mexico, and to regain
the prestige lost, be will most likely
cast the die against his own judg
In the event war proven to bo in
evitable lt ls to be boped that human
ity, magnanimity and . justice will
characterise every movement of this
government Mexico is wasted and
impoverished., She has no navy, on
ly a li:!il tc J quantity of muniUona
for her army, and no hope of assis
tance from any. other nation. There
should be no slaughter of the ? Mexi
can army , nor destruction of her cit
ies. 'Never, again, perhaps, in the
.hlr.tory bf the United States will ouch
an opportunity be presented for thia
nation to show to. the world that hu

WHY NEGLECT AVIATION!
Tbe Aero Club ot America presum
ably knows something about aviation.
It seriously objected to the slight |
provision for arelal defense In the j
army appropriation bill. Many sen
stbr* and fvprvu?ni&iivoa ihi-roupon
Joined In asking the club what, in
the opinion of its experts, would ho
need to provide an ad?quate aerial
force. The club has replied with
recommendations which aro entitled
to respectful consideration.
lt ld well understood that aviation
is the weakest branch of our mlUtary
service. We are entering upon a
program calling for the expenditure
of hundreds of millions of dollars for
naval defense, and of that there ls
no criticism. The Aero Club, how
ever. ?howB that for the cost of only
ono oatt io cruiser, S20.400.000-and
congress has authorized fire such
cruisers-a suitable. program of avia
tion Development could be carried ]
The present appropriation of $',
222.000 for this branch Pf the army
service, the club suggests, should be
I raised to |5,000.00. The equipment
Sot one aero squadron in the field,
ready for service, would bc $773,550.
That would provide 80 high-powered I
.aeroplanes, of the latest type, with'
ox ern motors, gasoline, oil, tent hang
ers, field repair equipment, etc. The
army should alBO be given, says the
club, at least $2,000,000 to provide
dirigible baroona and kite balloons,
useful for observation purposes, par
ticularly in the coast defense. There
shuuld be an adi tiona' $1,000,000 spent
for developing a roserve ot- civilian
aviators ready to take flying commis
sion? In time of need, and the appro-,
tfiatloh of '$78900 for the training
of militia aviators should he raised
lo il,000,000. It would Ilks to seo
another million spent for ,militia avia
tion equipment t -
Ti t* modest allowance undo for or
my aviation ts difficult to understand,
In view of the vital part that military
flying is playing in tho , Europeah
!wur. Shall we profit by, nea lessons'
an' taut of the Skagerrak battle pud
pay n.i hoed to the air leesons that
are taught id every day's news. ',' it
isn't .too tate for congress to revise
ita'aviation plans In accordance, with
tho judgment of experts. In no other
phase of the whole ' business of de
fenris can it get so much for co little
money, giving such general satisfac
tion with the imposition of so llgbt
a burden on the tax payers.
