spectacle, in which all the various
instruments of present day war
equipment were used by the marines,
the "Blue Army” in annihilating the
lumaginary enemy they have been
engaging for the past fortnight, and
which itas been designated as the
"Red Army.”

Secretary of War Weeks, In a letter
read by Col. C. O. Sherrill, mllltary

that "Defense day” is purely In the
interest of peace; that It Is an effort
to make the citizens of the Nation
capable of always enjoying- an Arff&r
ican peace "compatible with their
ideals and principles—the only kind
of peace they desire.”
In further outlining the purpose of
the national observance of Defense
day the War Department head called
attention to the fact that this Nation
has tried unpreparedness for 120
years without preventing war. but at
great coet in lives and at heavy bur
den to ail the people. "I abhor war,"
he said, “but I believe with Washing
ton. Hamilton, Jefferson. Adams, Jack
son. Grant. Roosevelt and Wilson that
peace can only be secured If we pos
sess the ability to repel war.
In his address Col. Sherrill urged
loyal and undivided support to the
patriotic effort now being made to
put the country on what he termed
a sane, economical system of national
defense. He told his audience that
he was addressing them as the per
