T,Ud4 SHIFTING POLICY COSTLY FACTOR OF WILSON RULE Has Pursued Vacillating Course! Secretary Garrison in December, with Important Problems, I 8(,m ,0 (:onsrcss hls rcroinm"" Including Preparedness. WASHINGTON, D. C., Oct. 21.? President Wilson has pursued a wab bling course in dealing with almost every problem of government in the last three and a half years. . The question of national defense hits furnished the most striking illustration of his characteristic faltering in the faco of a national crisis and of the cost to the republic of his dilatoriness and half-heartedness in carrying out the will of the people. Between December, 3914, and July, 1916. the president wabbled from a position opposed to strengthening the army and navy to a position repre senting a compromise with the de mands of the people. He was respon sible for a delay of ftro years in pro viding the larger army and navy final ly authorized. The cost of this delay already is represented by millions of dollars in the Increased price of war ships, and it will be assessed In terras of American blood and treasure If the United States should direly need its army and navy within two years of the completion of the national defense program. Evidence in nteranc<"S. One need go no farther than the ut terances of Mr. Wilson to demonstrate his wabbling on national defense. Af ter the European war broke out he steadfastly minimized the danger to the United States, refused to listen to the appeals of Ihe advocates of ade quate national defense, and on De cember 8, 1914, said ?o Congress: "But I will turn away from the subject (national defense). It Is rot new. There is no new need to discuss It. We shall not alter our attitude to ward it because some amongst us are nervous and excited." At Kansas City, on February 2,1916, the president said: "Speaking with all solemnity, I as sure there is not a day to be lost, not, understand me, because of any new or specially critical matter, but because I cannot tell twenty-four hours at a time whether there 1b going to be trouble or not." A Chang* In Views. On December 8, 1914, the president said the nation must depend "not upon a standing army, nor yet upon a re serve army, but upon a citizenry trained and accustomed to arms.' Ab late as January 29, 1916, he was compelled to admit In a speech at Cleveland: "Where we arc chiefly lacking In preparation Is on land and in the num [ bcr ol men who are ready to light," dations for army legislation, laying stress on the need of bringing up the army strength. Representative Hay, chairman of the house military affairs committee, scoffed at the recommenda tion and announced clearly his opposi tion to raising Ihe strength of the regular army. His confession was a promise to the national guard of a militia pay hill. Mr. Wilson paid no attention. Senator Chamberlain, ig noring the Wliilo House, railed his committee together in January, 1915, and urged prompt action. Then he called to his olllce several of the gen el-al staff and the war college. Because of the administration's attitude, how ever. nothing was done at that session of Congress. Chamberlain's Protest. In March, 1915, Senator Chamber lain protested sharply against "piece meal legislation." such as Mr. (iarrl son. discouraged by the administra tion's attitude, had confined Ills report to suggesting. The senator asked for a comprehensive plan for developing the entire army, and specified a bill based on the Injulry conducted during the Taft administration and General Leonard Wood's tenure of office as chief of staff. "I do not think Congress should be asked for what the war department thinks It can get, but what the country actually needs." said Mr. Chamberlain. "This done, the department will have placed the responsibility on Congress, and that body must he prepared to assume It." The surprised Mr. Garrison prompt ly iBsued direction to the general staff to have the bill drafted, and so noti fied Senator Chamberlain. The war collcgc division of the general staff began night sessions, to which Secre tary Garrison was frequently called, and prepared an exhaustive review of tho proper military policy which was to serve as the general text from which the whole preparedness legislation would be devised. On National Defense. On July 21, 1915, the president mov ed for the flrst lime In th? 'Mroct'Ti of obtaining defense legislation. He asked the secretaries ui war und uio navy to prepare plans for a larger army and navy. In responso the army war college worked out a comprehensive plan ol land defense. Mr. Wilson rejected It Secretary Garrison modified the plan to conform to the president's views favoring the continental army of a "citizenry trained and accustomed to arms." Mr. Wilson approved the Bcheme and Mr. Garrison then devoted bis entire energy to pushing it through, I Then appeared Mr. l>ny msiHtlng on! the small regular army, hut under pressure from the national guard lob byists. adding a provision for paying1 the militia, Mr. Hay bent his energy to defeating the Garrison program. On | the floor of the House lie stated ttiat "the president thinks this bill as n I is drawn makes the national guard a I sufficient force in time of peace to to used in time of war, and that It meetK the purpose he has in mind; 1 may nay in broad language that this is the president's own bill." Oarrison Deserted. Secretary Garrison was dumbfound ed. The president bad been blowing hot and cold on army legislation for weeks, encouraging Hay when Ha> was present and encouraging Garri son and Chamberlain when they were present. The Hay declaration, t ho war secretary knew, could have been made only on proper authorization. He made a final effort to pry out of Mr. Wilson a definite statement both on finny legislation and the proposed scuttling of the Philippines. Again Mr. Wilson evaded. Mr. Garrison found his "continental" army plan repudiated and abruptly resigned. The Mexican expedition forced the authori zation of 20,000 more regulars and a little later public sentiment began making itself felt. Iiut Hay was still strong and the best that the Senate could get was a compromise. As a result of Hay's work the army received in the national defense bill one of the most serious blows ever dealt iL The policy of Hay did not please his constituents and it became known that even two Democratic newspapers in his district were at tacking him. There was peril of his political future. Therefore Mr. Wil son gave him sanctuary in a life Job on tho court of claims. Army Is Left Weak. There is evidence that tho Wilson administration is making no serious effort to increase the army strength. Recent reports indicato that by June 1 there will he only 15,000 more troops in the regular army than there were at the beginning of the European war. The forceful Garrison has been re placed by .Newton Baker, who has proved entirely subservient to the White House. Officers have been moved backward and forward at the order of the executive without the knowledge of the general stafT. At least one olficer has been transferred across the country because he pre sumed to answer questions put to him about army affairs. Neither tho White House nor the civilian head of the war department since Secretary Garrison's resignation has shown the slightest sympathy with universal training. Mr. "Wilson in his final letter to Mr. Garrison said he did not "at all agree In favoring compulsory enlistment tfor training." Since then he has delivered bis dclphic utterance fkvorlng "vol untary compulsory" service, i MOVIE "CHILDREN'S DAY" EACH WEEK IS PROJECT INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., Oct . 21.?To raise the standard of moving pictures for children by securing state-wide observance of a "children's dny" each v?ek at the "movies." the Indianapolis board of censors of junior moving pic tures has begun a movement to mako its organization state-wide.
