Bvhtenoe Is accumulating dailv that the Administration is trying to remove the impression which the country was rapidly forming that the President hail committed himself to large expenditures for the national defence. This Impression was based chiefly on the activity of Administration officials In seeking several weeks ago to , rests the Impression that the Tresldent had been won over to the Idea of an ade quale navy and army That was when It was feared the national defence issue Would hurt the Tresldent politically unless some evidence was given ,,( his Intention to move. Now, however, some of the Tresldent's advisers feel that the Idea has gone ton far and that the programme of m.vdcraie expansion which the Tresldent may ad vocate will be disappointing to the country, Hence they are moving to meet the situation, and the publication of Ihe letters to Secretaries Daniels and Harrison Is part of the plan 1 iu reference In the Tresldent's let ter to Secretary Qarrleon ll regards. as Significant that Is where the Tresldent refers lo a "proper training of our clti. rams to arms" which will be in every way consistent with our traditions and our national potloy," This is taken to mean that the new system must not have a compulsory ser vice feature Home doubt has been ex pressed by army officials of the posslbll jty of maintaining an adequate reserve such as Secretary Harrison has In mind! without tome compulsory feature in the plan.
