E CONGRESS TO BE ASKED TO FOR UNIVERSAL MILITARY TRAININ Several Bills Being Prepared for the Consideration of the National Lawmakers Swiss System Suggested as Pattern for the United States Plan Considered by Experts as ideal 1 From Defensive Standpoint. Washington. Every sign points to Boino sort of legislation bearing on uni versal military training In the United States. And It Is becoming moro and moro apparent tlmt there may bo moro than one bill presented to con gress to provide for tho establishment of ono system or another of military preparation for tho youth of America. Recently there has been moro talk of such legislation. Just how far the American people will bo willing to go In Oils mutter not oven tho best Judges can possibly know. President Wilson and various mem bers of his cabinet, not to mention high ofllccrs of tho army and navy, arc almost n unit In tho opinion that tho voluntary plan of obtaining re cruits hns been, up to date, a failure ami Unit some program of universal military training will bo best for tho country In tho long run. Vnrlous bills providing for universal military training uro In process of mnklng. Ono is being whipped into form by persons identified with tho Universal Military Training league, whoso headquarters nro In Chicago, but whoso backers know no state lines and nro not. restricted by party or sect It will bo some time before any bill Is lu shape to go before tho houso or senate, but, In tho main, tho princi pal fenturcs can now bo presented, f Follow the Swl68 Plan, Tho Idea seems to bo to pattern tho United States plan after tho Swiss system of defensive military training and preparation. Experts aro laying stress upon tho difference between u military training plan looking to tho defenso of n country and one content plating aggression. Somo experts hold tjlmt tho Swiss plan 1b un Ideal ono from a defensive standpoint and tho Gorman system quite typical of ono concerned hot only with defensive but nggrcsslvo military measures. Howard II. Gross, president of tho Universal Military Training league, has just finished a visit in Washing ton, whero ho conferred with numer ous officials, Including Secretary of War linker, Mr. Gross Is careful to omphaslso tho Importance of a con servative system of military training rh against ono thnt might Invito op position from persons who sco a mill tnrlstlc bogey In every preparedness suggestion, "In Switzerland recontly tho entlro Swiss army, including nil tho re serves, was put on tho Swiss border within forty-eight hours," said Mr. Grass. "Tho Swiss border minus Swiss soldiers would have been quite as Inviting ns tho Belgian border had been. In mountain pass uud on plain Swiss soldiers who had been iicetis toiued to drilling and handling a lire arm since boyhood were gathered by tho hundreds of thousands. Kuch Swiss Is wltut ono would call lu this country 'n dead shot.' Mobilization of these 'dead shots,' lu short, Npclled tlx complete safety of tho Swiss republic from tho warring nations of Europe. Switzerland, however, In not a mill tarlstlc country, but quite tho re verse." Every Lad to Train. As outlined nt present, one of tho bills providing for universal military training will contain thu following lin portnut Items: Every lad between tho ages of eight cen and twenty-three- shall bo subject to military training unless ho Is phys Icnlly or mentally deficient. In tho nineteenth year tho boy must go to tho nearest training camp, whero ho will be received by Undo Sam and given several mouths of rigorous train Ing in military maneuvers, bundling of urins uud the science of warfare. Tho next year tho hoy must ulso re port for similar duty, but his term of training will not bo ho prolonged ns thp first year. Capable United States army and mi val ofllccrs will bo lu charge, and tho boys will bo taught discipline obedl Mice, cfiro of their bodies, upbuilding of tho ph j si quo, caniplng-out moth ods, besides tho regulation drill and turgt practice. OLD PROPERTY MAN IS DEAD The government will pay all bills from the tlmo the boy sturts for tho training camp to tho tlmo he gets homo ugaln. I'rovlous military experience or school training shall count ns a credit to any cntrnnt; that is, an entrant having had previous Instruction In a military school will bo Informed by the government thnt his term of mill tnry training has been reduced a cer tain number of weeks or months on that account. Use Military Camps. Training In military camps, such us tho LMuttsburg camp, or In tho stato guard also will ho given consideration United States ofllclals will puss upon nil entrants nnd It will be their dictum on who is fit or unlit. Thero will be no favoritism rlcl nnd poor, black and white will have to take the training. A plan Is afoot to Inject Into tho bill a provision muklng It unlawful for any employer to discriminate against a boy becuuso ho leaves his employ ment to take military training. general demand for this Is hotug heard, nnd the bill under discussion no doubt will lmvo somo such provl slou. At tho end of the two-year season In which actlvo training Is received tho entrant must lmvo Unbilled tho course, lie will bo told to go back to tho paths of Industry. Ho will ut once and automatically become a re- sorylst and will bo given n medal by the United States government. This medal will Indlcato to everybody thnt tho woaror Is a reservist, has hod tho training, and can hu depended tnon to defend his flag In any emergency. flint these medals will bo much prized by tho wearers Is regarded as certain. During tho thrco years after the youth has completed his actlvq train ing It Is plnnncd ho shall report for duty and take a week or two of drill. This feature of tho bill Is still In tho mnklng. Begin at Nineteen. It is also undecided exactly when tho hid shall begin his training, but tho best opinion now favors the nine teenth year. It Is esllninted that about half a million young men would bo given training yenrly and that at tho end of llvo years there would bo n reserve force of 2,500,000 trained men. Tho Idea seems to bo to start tho youth. In training and complete It be foro tho ago usual for marriage. Then, if tho United States Is plunged Into war, tho soldiers who would respond to call would bo tho last ones lu truln- ing, tho first reserves, nnd therefore the youngest soldiers. This would make quite Impossible the sundering of family ties, the taking away from wife and children of the chief sus tnlner of larder and home. It is also argued that boys will train moro easily ut this age, and moro easily will become Inured to the life. It Is rather premature to make an estimate of cost of universal military training, but ono conservative estimate Is from $100 to $1W) a year to tho man or from $."0,000,000 to $70,000,000 a your. At present thu American gov ernment Is spending about $100,000, 000 on Its army. Since tho Spanish tuorleun war our military system Is said to have cost the people uimut .fl,(HX).(XX.000. .
