ANNUAL DEFENSE DAY
PROPOSED BY OFFICIALS
Army Would Be in Better Position
if Event Was Held Every Year,
House Body Is Told.
% Continuation of Defense day, in
which final records show more than
10,000,000 men participated in one
form or another, is favored by the
War Department, Brig. Gen. Dennis
E. Nolan, deputy chief of staff of the
Army, told the House subcommittee
In hearings on the War Department
appropriation bill.
Gen. Nolan said Defense day ob
servance In some places was very suc
cessful, and that the officers had a
problem to solve as to just where
they would quarter the men, how
much they would feed them and other
details. They had to submit written
solutions and while some were poor
and some good, all of these would be
Improved if the officers had to meet
the problem every year.
One of the requirements of the
Secretary of War, he said, was that
there should be no expense to the
Government if the observance Is con
tinued.
