One Year r.i Training IVaturc. The main feature of the staff til! will he its provision for one year of intensive military training for all youths subject to Its terms. It la expected that exemptions due to physical difuiualliications and for other reasons. Including possibly the conscription of certain men for work in Industrial plants necessary in war time?, would leave available for army training between 430.000 and 500.000 of the 1,000,000 boys who reach the age of 18 years each year. In fixing upon a year at? the min imum time for training, the gen eral staff has followed the theory that the United States sefks to pro Vide only for an army of defense. It has been stated to the house com mittee by Ma J. (Jen. Hugh L. Scott that, although Kuropean nations :lve every soldier at least two year of hard work before turning him into the reserve because of the geo graphical position of the country, a year will sulflce here. The argu ment advanced to support this view was that there would be sufficient time to sive finishing touches to the military education of reservists after war had broken out and before in vading expeditions could be landed in force.
