Senate Probe
Into Hayward
Charge Sought
Calder Promises luquiry
Why Men of thc 369th
Were Sent Into Bat ile
Inadequately Trained
Betrayal of Trust Seen
Kalm an?9 Wadsworth Are
Dependcd On to Assist
in Fixing Responsibilily
Senator William M. Calder, of New
Vork, told The Tribune last night that
on tiie convening of Congress he would
go before the Senate and insist upon
"an immediate and thorough investiga
Uon" of Colonel William Hayward's
charge that the 36Dth Infantry?the
old 15th New York, which hc led over
scas?was thrown into action by thc
commandcis of thc American Expedi
tionary Force without proper training.
Colonel Hayward made hia charge
in an address before the Circumnnvi
;ators' Club at thc Hotel Commodore
Thursday night. In an interview with
The Tribune, Senator Calder dcclared
that while Colonel Hayward's state
ments were "startling" they containcd
nothing that had not already come to
his attention "from other sources."
Senator Calder dcclincd to disclose
these "sources" or to discuss further
the information he obtained from
them. The name of thc officials re?
sponsible for sending untrained men to
the liring line ought to be disclosed to
thc public, hc said.
One ot" the purposes of the investi?
gation. Senator Calder declared, would
be to ascertain whether the condi?
tions Colonel Hayward said existcd in
his rcguiicut wero true of other units
in thc American forces.
Aims to IMace Uesponsibility
"If it was thc general policy of the
War Department to put men on the
liring line beforo they had proper
training, this should be brought to
light and the rcsponsibility for it es?
tablished," said he.
Senator Calder declared he was sure
both Kepresentative Julius Kahn, of
California, who will be chairman of
thc House Military* Affairs Committee
in thc next Congress, and Senator
Wadsworth, of Xew York, who, Sena?
tor Calder said, probably would head
the Senate Military Affairs Committee,
would render all aid in their power in
tha proposed investigation.
Senator Calder's statement ni full
was as follows:
"I read Colonel William Hayward's
charges this morning, and while they
are startling, they do not contain any?
thing that has not already come to my
attention from other sources.
"It is my purpose immediately upon
the convening of Congress to lay Colo
fiel Hayward's charges before the Sen?
ate, and insist that an immediate and
thorouph investigation of the same
oe made.
"The name of the official or officials
responsible for the orders putting
men into battle with so little knowl
"dge of warfare ought to be disclosed
to thc public.
"If it was the general policy of the
War Department to put men on the
liring line before they had propcr
training, thia ought to be brought to
?ignt and thc rcsponsibility i'or it es?
tablished.
"No country ever gave up her boys
M> Willingly, and that they should have
heen forced to fight without sufficient
preparatu.n is a betrayal of the confi
aencc tne American people placed in
Wehanda of tho War Department.
It will hc interesting to learn
?"?ncthrr other units in the American
army fought under similar conditions
Mthout proper training.
Koprescntativc Julius Kahn, of
?aiiforma, is in France. He will bc
chairman of the House Military Affairs
tornmitt.ee of thc next Congress.
I am informed he is gathering in
Jormatiou on tho conditions under
WBlch our men fought, and I am certain
inat both he and Senator Wadsworth,
WlO probably w.li be chairman of the
Military Affairs Committee and
[??o was m France for two months
aitcr tl.,. signing of thc armistice, can
oe depo-idr,! upon t0 give eyery assjst.
?'" ' ' ' ?'?? power to see that these
Wgos are thoroughly inquired into
"o tnat those responsible for this
"?"ing condition of affairs are ex
POser 1, no matter how hiKh they be."
Oo'onei Hayward declined vesterday
<*> make any further statement con

Union Leader Says
Soviet Manifeslo
Here Is Ridiculous
Schlessinger Suspevts Two
Discharged Employcs of j
Garment Workers' Union
With Issqing Document
The manifesto issued by New York
Bolsheviki demanding tho organization
among the 00,000 waist, and dress mak- j
ers of a soviot system whicli would
revolutionize the industry and place
it in control of thc workers cmanatcd
from a couple of discharged employcs
of the union, according to' Itenjnrnin
Schlessinger, president of the Inter?
national Ladies' Garment Workers'
Union.
The document was directed to fellow
workers in the waist and dress in?
dustry, and said: "The time has ar?
rived for workers to break the shacklos
of slavery and organi/.e into workers'
councils." It espouscd the breaking
down of class barriers and asked that
each shop be represented in the coun?
cil by two workers; that in future each
shop be controlled by a committee of
workers; and called the meeting of
delegates this afternoon at 2 o'clock,
nt the Russian People's House, 133
East Fifteenth Street.
"1 addressed a meeting of 2,000 of
the striking members," Mr, Schlessing?
er said yesterday, "and I found that
the women did not know anything
about the Bolshevik plan for starting
a .soviet organization.
"The idea is ho ridiculous that as a
union wc are not considering it sc
riously.
"The union has authorized nothing
in the way of an ofticial statement,
and it has not defined a policy regard?
ing this so-called soviet group. Rc
cently we discharged a man who was
employed as an organizer. Wc ga*.o
him two months' extra pay to get ri'l ?
of him. Another man who was a see
retary of a local union also was dis- '
charged. It is probably from those
sources that this Bolshevik propa
ganda has started."
The District Attorney is in posscs
sion of the "manifesto" issued by the
Bolsheviks, and a detail of poliye
will be on hand to prcserve order, and
to make arrests if the meeting to-day
should develop scditious or anarchistic
utterances.
Organizers of thc "industrial revolu
tion" were not at their headquarters
yesterday.
At the headquarters of thc Amalga
mated Clothing Workers of America
it was xtatcd that no attempt had
been made to serve the manifesto
there.
Counsel Chargow Framc-Up
