Foison has come"- to exports join Conference on Disarmament May Iis cuss Control of New Agencies In War fare Will Take Lone Time to Formulate Rules. By DAVID LAAVRENCE. (Special Despatch to The Reformer.) Copyright V.V21. WASHINGTON, Sept. gas as a means of warfare btay. America's military with those of other countries in insisting that the cas bomb is just as humane as the torpedo or the l.OOO pound tdiell Any idea that the I nited States army ex perts will advise the American delegation to the conference on limitation of arm aments to propose the abolition of poison gases can be dismissed as out of the ques tion. President Harding in his invitation to the other powers pointed out that "it may be found advisable to formulate pro posals by which in the interest of human it y the use of new agencies of warfare may be suitably controlled." A canvas; by this correspondent of military author ities develops the fact that the American army holds chemical warfare to be a rec ognized and desirable moans of warfare that is just as desirable as any other means of killing the troops of the enemy The experts sm- they hope the time will never come when war is necessary to set tle disputes between nations. They arc just as anxious for permanent peace as any other Americans. But Mr. Harding himself in his speech to the Army War college spoke his doubts about permanent peace and indicated that armies and na vies would always be necessarv. Inas much as tin commander-in-chief of the army and navy fools that way. the ex ports declare it is their solemn duty to advise upon such use of those agencies of warfare as will bring a conflict to an abrupt ending. Universal Prejudice Against It The prejudice against the use of poison gas is of course universal. When the Germans first introduced it. the same out cry was raised as against the submarine torpedo. Yet before the war was over, both sides used the gas bomb and Amer ica invented such destructive gas Iximhs s might have ultimately annihilated the German army if the armistice had not in terforred. The public has little idea of the awful ness of the now agencies of war. But the experts declare that the more destruc tive an agency is the more unlikely i there to lie war. The American military authorities, however, are a unit in ex pressing the opinion that while gas may be used against soldiers and sailors it should not bo employed against non combatants or where any non-combatants and troops may bo mixed. - The use of poisons should be reserved for attack on strictly military or naval areas. Will Require Months When the agenda for the coming con ference is completed, rides of warfare will bo found to have been included. It can't bo excluded gracefully for the American government has publicly ox- pressed itself on the subject and the other powers have agreed to it without excep tion. Rut when it comes to framing rules of warfare, the conference will lind itself absorbed for months in a phase of the problems entirely apart from that which is involved in reducing military or naval expenditures. The cost of gas war fare is relatively small. Armies and na vies may bo scrapped but means of chem ical warfare can be developed by any na tion, however, small. That's why before the Washington conference is over, it may bo found necessary to consult the other nations of the world. They wil' want to have a voice in any agreement that is reported. It took several month for the f ti mou s conference of lOO'.l at London to draw up rules of warfare. Th I In gue conference of !M) had not suffi ciently clarified the rules of war. But both the declaration of London and tin Hague conventions of J!M)7 went by the boards when the European wnr began ir 1014. largely because the V.M)'.i rules had not been unanimously adopted. What About Torpedoes? Whether or not limitation of new arm ament is. agreed upon at the Washington conference, the control of old agencies of warfare is bound to develop more an' more importance jis the military and na val experts of all the jKiwers get together here. The opinions of the American mil itary exports that poison gns shall not be abolished are significant. It moans that the naval experts also will not wish the use of tbe torpedo by submarines to be held illegal except of course as against ships carrying non-combatants. The right to torpedo naval vessels without warning however is- a moot point. Some contend that an opportunity to surrender should be given. Others argue that in a na val battle no such chance is given when a vessel is fatally hit. During the war our naval authorities were careful not to commit themselves against the use of the submarine. They are not yet ready to give up that new moans of warfare Germany mav have been denounced for introducing the new agencies of war but military and naval opinion here indicates that the new agencies have come to stay ami that America at least will take the lead in urging that the wars of the fu ture be fought more humanely in the sense that non-combatants shall not bo attacked, as the German army and navy insisted upon doing throughout the war on JaiHl. sea and air.
