With the investigating committee's report attacking construction methods, the Republican majority presented a resolution directing that evidence ob tained during the nine months investiga tion be turned over to the attorney gen eral with the request that he institute criminal and civil proceedings. The Democrats countered with a substitute resolution, proposing to instruct the committee to name persons, firms and corporations "which should be investi gated" before directing the attorney gen eral to proceed. Representative McCullough. Republi can, Ohio, declared the cry "we won th| war." had been made to cover many sins, while Representative Doremus, Demo erat, Mich. . asserted that "if the supreme architect of the universe had built these camps, the bleacher managers would have found fault with the jobs." The majority quiz report. pre sented by Republican committeemen, criticized government agencies and of ficials in charge of the war building pro gram, while the minority report of the Democrats defended the administration. The government lost $78,531,521 on the sixteen national army cantonments, it was estimated by the majority re port. which asserted that was due to "waste, inefficiency and graft," result ing from cost plus contracts which was said t have been "wide open." No Estimate on N. G. Camps. No estimate of loss on the national guard camps was made by the majority. Dissenting from the majority findings, the minority declared that the construc tion work was equivalent to between .'52 cities, each with 37,000 to 40,000 popula tion and added: "This tremendous task was virtually completed in three r;onths and stands j Poslam quickly and conveniently sup P" PS the prompt relief you seek for ail Ing skin, the acHve help you need to be ' rid of Pimples, to heal Eczema, to drive away Rashes, Redness and to clear in ; flam J ed complexions. aV oid further suffering try Poslam a t once.

It was urged that the department of justice investigate work at every camp.

The majority declared Secretary Bak er should not have permitted a depar ture from the old method of competi tive bids. The minority is of the opinion, added the report, "that if the views of the majority should have been adopted at the beginning of the war, the whole building program would have been in a state of chaos, many of our troops would have perished with cold or died of disease during the winter of 1917, and the German army would have been in Paris before our soldiers could have got to Europe."
