Send? Message to Congress
Seeking an Appropriation
SPECIAL ACT IS NECESSARY
Money Spent in Preliminaries
Lost if Lawmakers
Washington, Juno Zi.?President I
Taft to-day sent a message to Congress |
earnestly urging an appropriation of 1
f 1,717,500 to meet t i-.o expenses of the
joint encampments and manoeuvres of
the militia and tho regular army, plans
for which have been perfected and
which are to begin at the end of the
first week In July. It Is hoped that
Congress will pass a special act for
this purpose when it reassembles next
Monday. In his message the President
"Very complete arrangements have
been tentatively prepared for the par?
ticipation in camps and manoeuvres
of a large portion of the organized mi?
litia of the United State!-'. Preparation
has been made for this most important
military instruction both by the Unite 1
States anil by the various States whose
organized militia will participate.
'The magnitude of the manoeuvre
plans can be seen when it is estimated'
Ui?t TP.Oho officers sad enlisted men of
the o.-ganlz.d militia will take part In
them during the coming year. Should
It be impossible to carry out tho con?
templated manoeuvres, it will, be at a
very great loss of efficiency to tho !
troops concerned and Will entail a
great disappointment to tho thousands
of men. who, with the manoeuvres lit
view, have been pi t paring themselves
Money Already Expended.
"In contemplation of the manoeuvres I
it has been necessary already to ex
pen1 the sum of (80,000 from the imex?
pended balance of last year's appropri?
ation for manoeuvre purposes for the
organised militia, which sum will be
lost should tho project of manoeuvres
not be consummated. In addition to 1
this, the various States have made nr- !
rangementa to expend l.irgu amounts
from their apportionment from the
funds appropriated by Congre.-s under
Section 1661, Revised Statutes, or from",
funds appropriated by the State. With
out an appropriation by Congress the
manoeuvres may not be held. I have j
the honor, therefore, strongly to rec?
ommend and urge that the following
Items, taken from House bill No. lSyr.H j
(army appropriation bill), he eiiactolj
separately nnd specially: 'tl,350,000,1
encampment and manoeuvres, organized
Needed for Regular Army.
"In addition to the appropriation for !
the organized militia for manoeuvre
purposes. It would be necessary that;
certain amounts be appropriated and
made immediately available lor the reg?
ular army to participate with the or?
ganized militia and aid the latter In
the purpose of tho manoeuvres. This
appropriation would total $367,500.
"The immense Importance of the
training of militia lend* ine again to
urge most strongly that the two iip
proprlatlona mentioned b< made avail?
able on or before tho second day of
July. 1912, since unless the manoeuvres
can be definitely determined upon by
thnt date, the plans of the encamp?
ments end manoeuvres of a great por?
tion of the organized militia of the
United Statte will have to be aban

President In the hope that Congress

will regard this provision for the sum?

and will therefore separate the Item
from the new army appropriation bill,
which must be prepared to replace the
measure vetoed last week.
