Feb. 19, Further disclosures of his efforts to change the army court martial system were made by Brigadier General Ansell, formerly acting judge advocate general in a letter to Representative Burnett of Alabama, which was read toniffht in the house. General Ansell told of one case in which in his "desire to serve justice" he had been forced Jo so to a member of congress to get him to place before the president the facts in connection w ith four men sen tenced to death, after they had been "most unfairly tried." General Ansell declared that a re port of a study of British, French and Italian court martial systems, filed with the judge advocate general's of fice in 1917, had never reached the secretary of war. He also wrote that a war department order suspending certain sentences, until they could be reviewed in Washington, "was an ad ministrative palliative," described by the judge advocate general as neces sary to "prevent a threatened con gressional investigation of the hang ing of the thirteen negro soldiers, in Texas, three months before the records in their case reached the war depart ment for review." , The letter to Mr. Burnett was in re ply to the Alabama's member's criti cism of army court inartials a few days ago, in which he had declared General Ansell "had shown that he himself was a party to the crime." and had not done all he should to revise the system." In presenting the letter. Mr. Burnett admitted he had been "too harsh" in his former criticism, and done an injustice to General Ansell. but added that "General Ansell was not entirely blameless.'' General Ansell wrote that his whole course of conduct as acting judse ad vocate was marked by a desire to liberate the harsh features of the court martial, so as to give an ac cused person the guarantees that guards one in a civil court trial. After reviewing cases he cited be fore the senate committee last wed-' and telling of his disagreement with General Crowder, and of his being re lieved as acting judge advocate general General Ansell said : ' "Last September, after insistent recommendations, power was estab lished in the acting judge advocatt; general in France, to make rulings up on matters of administration of milli tiny justice in our forces in France which would control all commandin: generals until over-ruled by the sec retary of war. This is now being op posed by the commarding general. of the American K.xpeilitionary force, and my own action ami proprietv in pressing the issue of this order is' be ing subjected to question."
