The executive committee of the I-
terstate National Ouard association
has sentr crtit literature on the subject
of making the National Guard of the
United States a more uniform body,
having the same discipline and equip
ment of the regular army. It is the
object of the organization to further
this state of affairs, and the plan is
outlined in a speech made before con
gress by (Jen.-Charles Dick, of Ohio,
who says: ii :: '"
"The only way to bring our Nation
al Guard up to a high state of effi
ciency is to pass a federal law whicla
will make them in fact as well as in
name a national guard and which will
insure their uniform equipment and
drill. They should be armed and
equipped just as the regular army is
armed and equipped, and they should
have the same discipline and instruc
tion so far as possible In the limited
time that can be given for that pur
pose. "State troops shouhl go to camp un
der conditions as nearly as possible
approximating those of actual war.
State troops and regular troops
should be camped together, so. that
the former may have the benefit of
the experience and skill of the latter.
The volunteer should bunk as the reg
ular bunks, should live on the same
ration, and should prepare his meals
just as the regular prepares them
under service conditions. Volunteer
soldiers should be trained in carrying
the same accoutrements that they
would carry in actual warfare. The
government should make liberal a
propriations for target practice. Aim
ing and pointing drills shouhl be giv
en frequently to all volunteers, and
they should le given an opportunity
every year of tiring on the ranges.
Depots should he established for re
serves of arms and equipment, and
these should be so distributed
throughout the country that there
need be no delay in equipping a vol
unteer force when called for duty.
Would Inarea.se Iiaplilly.
"The present National Guard of the
states anil territories aggregates
about ll.l.OUO officers and men. With
liberal appropriations by congress.
and a system of federal control and
instruction, the states will also be in
duced to accord more liberal treat
ment, and this force will, in a short
time, doubtless, reach .'OO.OOO. Of this
number it is believed at least 1.10.000
would respond to a call for duty. This
would be amply sufficient under all
contingencies which may reasonably
be expected, for the second line of. de
fense, and would give the country
breathing time within which to or
ganize and equip its vast unorganized
"With a volunteer force of this size,
so equipped ami disciplined that it
could take the field at once, it would
be possible to even reduce the size of
our regular army. It would be a body
which would inspire the respect of
other nations and make them hesi
tate to wantonly attack us. The coun
try would be far better prepared for
wa,r, while at a minimum of expense
we would be able to secure to the
country a maximum of our military
strength in times of great emergency."
