"-The President has directed an ex
peditionary force of approximately
one division of regular troops, under
command of Gen. John J. Pershing, to
proceed to France at as early a (late
as practicable. Gen. Pershing and
staff will precede the troops abroad.
"It is requested that no details or

Gen. Pershing has been in Wash

Plans for Expedition.
The man who led the expedition
into Mexico with such judgment and
skill as to win for him the complete
confidence of the President and his
advisers, has worked hard on plans
for the expedition to France. He has
been in daily conference with Secre
tary Baker, Major Gen. Bliss, acting
chief of staff, with departmnent offi
cials cooperating in the preparation
of the forces he will lead against the
Germans and also with Lieut. Gen.
Bridges, head of the military section
of the British mission and a veteran
of battlefields of France.
Nothing that either French or
British officers have been able to fur
nish in the way of information has
been lacking and there is every indi
cation that the regular forces which
wvill complose the expeditionary divis
ion ar eng selected with greatest

The war in Europe has developed
many newv phases of battle not here
tofore known in military science. Ar
tillery has decided the fate of nmany
baittles and every army has doubled
and trdeld its guns, both in size and
number. F~or this reason it wvas
thought likely the expeditionary
forces would include a dlisproportion
ate number of artillery troops and be
backed by a solid wvall of guns when
it. comes to grips wvith the enemy.
The number of men in the expedi
tionary force has not been dlisclosed.
A dlivision at war strength, however,
totals more than 25,000 men of all
arms and the "approximate" dlivision
of the War Department's statement
probably wvill exceed that figure.
