A Happy New Year.
.The Advertiser and the members of

correspondents and friends who re
melberedi us in their words and
thoughts at the Christmas time. These
expressions of friendliness and good
will toward the paper and its person
nel encourages us to believe that our
efforts to Iut out a good paper, are ap
preciated. We hope by renewed ef
forts to merit the felicitations which
have already been offered and which
we may gain in the future.
RO11I;RTi I0 GONZAblC:S.
The Christmins season cannot be
happy for us all. Each day and every
hour finds someone somewhere sad
dened. 'T'his Christmas season has
been no exception. There have been
many made sad by the final departure
of friends or loved ones. The news
paper fraternity of the state, we
might say of the nation, has not been
without its sorrows. One of its bright
est lights passed out to the Great He
yond just before the Christmas season
and his body was gently laid to rest
Tuesday. Robert E. Gonzales, para
graph writer on the staff of The State
and known the country over, died on
the Texas border while performing Ilis
duty in the sevice of his country. In
his death the readers of The State feel
that they have sustained a personal
loss, for by his gentle humor and
sparkling wit, he hound them all to
him as friends. In the wider Ifid of
literature, there is doubtless a gap
that will never he tilled, for by his
early writings in verse he had already
shown that his was an uncomion
talent. The Advertiser jolis with the
host of others who deplore his tint ime
ly death and who symplathize with
these near to him in their sorrow.

UNIVERSAL MIILITARIY TIRAINING
NOW REING PLANNED
General Staff of the Army Will Also
Submit Complete Estimate of Cost.
Washington, Dec. 21.-A definite
plan for universal military training
will be laid before congress next
month In the shape of a bill formiu
lated by the general staff of the army
'accompanied by C(mplete 'estimates
of cost as compared to the present
volunteer system. Major General
Scott, chief of staff, told the house
military committee today that the
work was in progress and would re
quire about a month to complete.
Chairman Dent said the committee
would be glad to see the bill.
In response to a laughing question
as to who wolud introduce it in the
hottse, llepresentative Karn of Call
fornia said: "I would be glad to have
the honor to introduce it."
General Scott was subjected to
shari) cross examination today on his
reiterated reiteration for a universal
service leasure, based in part on re
suits of the Volunteer system as shown
in the mobilization of the national
guard for border service. Five of
the twenty-two members of the com
mittee took occasion to assert their
belief in the theory of universal ser
vice while two emphatically declared
against sech a system.
Representative Tilson, himself a col
onel in the national guard, followed
General Scott's repeated assertion
that the federalization of the nation
al guard would not meet the country's
military needs, said:
"I agree with you that voluntary
military service is not an adequate
kysteml and probably would break
down ill time of war as it has done
before. The national guard system
n partileInr is economically unwise
because of the dual control over the
forces by the federal government and
Taking up the report on the mobili
zation of the guard, Representative
"Don't you think that. in view of
the enormously greater task of tie
regular service as the agent. which
conducted the Mobilization, the regi -
Iar army fell down harder in propor
tion than the national guard?"
"We make many 'ritic ismis of ou r,
selves," General 14(eo t said, adiiiv
that a rep!ort on the arny's :1hare
in tie mbilizaton aly had bmeen,
a.'ked for and( woliuh e presen ted.
"ThlatI is what I want toi alppar in I
'hois ecord." saidi lhepresenitative 'il
'on, ''hecause I want tom show that noc
'uet of umllears, no ma1 tte r how wi iellI
tra lined(l, coulId miakhe this nationalI
guard sysStem work."
Th'le priobablc nature of the bill now
being drafted by a commliittee of the
genleral staff was not diselosed by
General Scott, whmo also refcsed to
estimate the cost of such a system,
except to say3 that proportlonately it
would be imuich less thman tre expmense

troops. It is known, however, that
