FOR LARGER ARMY
Weeks W arns Against Cu( to 115,000
IIEA RINGS CONCLUDED
Gen. Pershing' Thinks Large Army
Would Have Prevented War
Washington, April 25.-A plea for
a national military policy which would
assure the checking of aggression by
foreign powers in its incipiency and
which would avoid "confusion, disord
er, delay and extravagence" when em
ergencies arise was made today by
Secretary Weeks and Gen. Pershing
before a Senate committee in support
of the War Department program for
an army of 13,000 officers and 150,
000 enlisted men.
The statements by the two army
heads concluded the public discus
sion of the annual army supply bill
and the appropriations committeel
which has charge of it will begin
immediately to write. the measure.
Gen. Pershing declared that had
the United States been adequate
ly prepared, "there is little question
that the United States, under strong
leadership, could have prevented the
World Wat' altogether." [He added
- that the civil war likewise, would
never have occurred had the Union
been equipped with an army of rea
sonable size and ready for immediate
The army of 115,000 men and 11,
000 officers, fixed by the House
was considered by Secretary Weeks
to be "below the safe minimum re
quirements" of the country. He as
sorted that "unbusiness-like" conduct
of the military establishment in years
gone by was responsible for the ex
penditure of "unnecessary" bililons in
"We have entered each war with
out national defense system unor
organized," Mr. Weeks continued.
"This has required an extemporized
organization thrown together in great
haste and sesulting always in exces
sive expenditure and excessive econ
omic disturbance. In each war, we
have consistently adhered to a policy
of forming a great citizen army to
reinforce our small regular estab
lishment, but in the absence of any
definite plans the process of forming
this citizen army has been one of
confusion, disorder, delay and extra
In Gen. Pershing's statement re
garding the size of the army, he
warned that human nature has not
clwnged and that "our own experi
ences should have taught us tat
the exercise of envy, jealousy and
hatred can no more be ignored
among nations than among individ
"We should possess and continue
from year to year," said the gen
eral, ":' consistent and well ma

"This is only the part of com
mon sense and ordinary precaution.
