SENATOR WOULD HAVE ARMY
DO PRACTICAL WORK
Washington, Dec 16. An army
educated in engineering and hard
ened to the rigors of campaigning
through the reclamation of desert
lands, the reforestation of large west
ern tracts and the protection of the
Mississippi valley from floods was ad
vociated this afternoon by Senator
Works of California.
He said such an arrny would do
away with two great evils; first, the
unpreparedness of the country; and
second, the danger in the present
preparedness plans of creating "a
military caste." Also he said, the sol
diers recruited would be doing useful
work instead of becoming idlers.
