VOLUNTEER ARMY (Continued From Page One) teer army, the genera! said, will be a r.iuch better one than his counterpart in the service follow ing World War I. He will receive better training, greater education al advantages, the benefits of a better pay scale and more advan tageous retirement terms. There’s a better career for any man who wants to make the army his career than at any time in the country. Pointing to the support being given the army, the chief of staff said the American people and congress are more interested to day in adequate national security than at “anytime in my career.” In answer to a question regard ing the possible effect of recent diplomatic developments on the army, General Eisenhower said it is to be presumed that the state department has considered all the factors before taking action. And, he added, since that is its aphere of activity, it would not be in propriety for him to comment ®n the matter. He did say, however, that our free government was strengthen ed by every other free country. Here, again, he referred to the occupation army strength prob lem and pointed out that if the United States doesn’t do a good job, it is bound to weaken democ racies everywhere. The world, he added, is looking V) this country to take the lead in promoting freedom and peace. If It becomes weak in a military ®ense, other nations will not be Inspired to sacrifice to keep up their free institutions. He told » questioner that con tinuance of camps and other mil itary facilities would be governed largely by the speed and volume with which armies of occupation •re brought home. Fort Bragg Permanent But, he was quick to add, if there is one post that will be per manent it will be Fort Bragg, one of the largest military reserva tions in the world. He recalled th~ his ' rent visit here is his first in his long career and that he was very much impressed by the installation. As troops now on occupation duties are returned to the United States they will of necessity have to be housed in present active posts. The general does not ex pect any new camps to be con structed but, should universal mil itary training be adopted, some now closed down would be re opened.__ Could Victoria Reign 63 Years With Stomach Ulcer Pains?

Mrs. Effie Bryant, assistant ma tron, wras called before the board at the request of Commissioner Trask. Much of her testimony was of a personal nature and was ordered stricken from the records by Chairman Hewlett. Inmates Deprived of Meals She did reveal, however, that inmates were deprived of meals as a form of punishment for in fractions of the home’s rules. When asked what she knew about the Buie case, Mrs. Bryant sai(j that Sunday was her day off and that she had only heard aDout it when she returned to home Sun day afternoon shortly after 6 p.m. Following Mrs. Bryant’s session with the board, an inmate, David E. Barton, was called into the room. Barton told of being confined to his bed for five weeks where he received daily attention from the nurse but compalined that neither of the Carters came to visit him more than twice during the en tire time. He explained to the commission ers that he had come to Wilming ton in a taxi at his own expense and had been under the treatment of Dr. Robert M. Fales. , ‘‘Dr. Fales and the new nurse (Mrs. Smith) got me up,” he said in referring to the fact that he was now able to be up and about the home. Barton was highly critical oi su perintendent Carter. He said that one of the few times he visit ed him during his confinement that he used profanity. “I was just lying in bed read ing my Bible,” Barton said, “when Carter cursed at me.” The only other inmate called during the more than three-hour long session was William T. Clark, who said his age was 78. He said that he had been at the home five weeks and 10 days. He was loud in his praise of the food, the care, the attention and the treatment he had received at the hands of Superintendent Car ter. “Carter is a fine man and I respect him,” Clark said firmly. When Commissioner Hall then asked him if he had ever seen whisky taken away from any of the inmates, ‘he answered in the affirmative. Clark also said that he had seen handcuffs applied to an unruly pa tient. At that point Commissioner Hall said that he knew the in mate in question and that in all probability it was the only man ner Superintendent Carter had of restraining him. Commissioner Trask expressed his objection by stating that he did not believe handcuffs should be used on elderly people. Following Clark’s testimony, Chariman Hewlett suggested that as it was well past 6 p.m. the commission should adjourn and reconvene again today. Findings of the board will be released when the probe has been I terminated.
