LEAGUE IS GROWING
WORK FOR PEACE BUT BE PRE
PARED FOR WAR" IS MOTTO
OF THE ORGANIZATION.
Desire of the National Organization to
Have An Organizer Here Who Is In
terested In Patriotic Movement.
Some patriotic and public-spirited
inan or woman in this city is asked by
the National Defense la-ague to head
a movement to organize a branch of
the la.-a.ttue here.
The League, which was founded in
Wa. hington, I). by prominent oun
. ressmen and others in 11*1;;, has Just
launched a nation wide campaign fjr
luanch organizations in every sec
tion of tlie country.
To work for a .arger navy, an ad- -
<|uate army, the improvement of the
National Guard, and for a 1 things that
will better prepare the United States
lor war. the Leagu,, was organized In
the House of Representatives Oftiee
i'-uilding, in Washington, February 2,
I !i l
Since then the League lias accom
plished much for the purposes for
v.liieli it was started
"Work lor Peace, but be i’repar* d
tor War,’’ the motto of tne League,
which is a paraphrase of a famous
maxim of George Washington, exact
ly expresses the work of the organi
'MMir Win .Miwnilill IH.'IHISC I .I'll 11“
Mrives to strengthen all forces whl -h
would make the country better pre
pared for war, it states in its cons.t
tution: "This League abiiors war
ami be.ieves in universal peace, hut
i: firmly believes that preparation for
war is the best guarantee of peace.”
In view of tlie subtleness of the gi
gantic European war now raging it
behooves ,.very patriotic citizen of the
l nited States to critically examine
I lie position his country now occupies
in relation to any sudden attack which
might be made in the future on it—an
attack which might come with the sud
denness of a thunderbolt and with the
same unexpectedness of the present
huropi an couflagratio"
Tlie United States is not prepared,
if it w'ere attacked tomorrow, to
defend its territory or its citizens. An
attack by any first class power like
.lapan or Germany, if made suddenly,
wouid find tlie United States total y
unprepared for tlie blow. Disaster to
I lie country would swiftly follow such
a war loss of territory, seacoast ci
ties bombarded, our merchant marine
swept from tlie seas, loss of Hawaii
and the Philippines, tills is tlie spec
ire which today may loom lar-e and
terrifying on the horizon tomorrow.
The smallness of tlie United States
Army, compared to tlie great armed
host s moving in Europe, is pointed
out by Major-Gen. Leeonard Wood, in
liis annual report as chief of staff of
tlie army, recently made public. It
shows that the actual strength of the
army is 1,602 officers, and 80,000 en
listed men. scattered over tlie world,
and the general declared that to main
tain a force within tlie United States
sufficient for even a small expedition
and the police work of the day it
would be necessary to substantial./
increase the regular establishment.
This country is an unarmed, sleep
ing giant, slumbering until some
smaller nation, armed and equipped
tin war, at'acks it and humiliates the
greatest republic on the globe.
Since its organization the National
"Defense League has ln?en laboring t>
arouse a public sentiment throughout
the country for better and more ade
quate means and preparation for na
t tonal dilcnse.
It Hii. al o lieeti active for National
defense legislation in Congress.
Tin- League secured in the last ar
my appropriation bill a clause, fir:t
introduced in the House as a separate
hilt by its Chairman. Representative
Julius Kahn of California, which al
lows the War department to distribute
free of cost to civilian rifle clubs and
schools, with ammunition, iLi.OO-J
lvrag Jorgensen rifles now stored .n
Hie arsenals. This legislation was
sought unsuccessfully for many years
hy the National Association for the
Promotion of Rifle Practice.^ Thanks
to the Kahn bill, which was incorpo
rated in the army appropriation bill,
ten civilians anywhere, can now or
ganize a rifle c.ub and secure free ri
fle.- and ammunition for target prac
tice. from the Government. It Is be
lieved this law wil: greatly stimulate
rifle shooting throughout the country,
and thus prepare, as marksmen, a
large number of citizens, many of
whom would be a valuable nucleus for
volunteers. The law also allows our
schools, private or public, to receive
itee rifles and ammunition. This law
was the greatest legislative work for
the National defense yet accomplished
b> the League.
The League within the last year was
instrumental in securing orders from
li.t Cabinet officers of the Wilson ad
ministration that Government em
ployees everywhere who are members
of the National Guard, can take time
from their Government duties for Na
tional Guard service, without their ef
ficiency records being hurt in tne
slightest. Before this was done by the
League many Government bureau
chiefs, even in Washingtotn, cave un
favorable efficiency ratings to ein
pioyes who were absent on National
*;uard duty The orders we re of grr-it
Ix iu ftt to the National Guard.
Working along the lines oF getting
the business man interested in the Na
tional Guard the League began with
tiie Commercial organizations in
Washington and secured resolution-;
from (lies organizations endorsing the
National Guard and recommending
to (lie members of the organizations
that their , mployees be allowed two
weeks vacation for National Guar i
cainp duty annually in addition to tli ?ir
regular vacations. This movement
is now being extended to oilier cities
where commercial organizations, are
being aroused to the necessity of
a.diiig their local guardsmen in tillJ
The League has persistently advo
cated an adequate battleship and mi
;al program annually, and has done
and is doing other work along the
lines of a common sense and neces
sary policy lor the national defense.
Anybody can join the League. Pa
triotic women are as much interest . !
in the work as men. A branch can
be organized anywhere by five per
sons. Any person can become a mem
ber at larae. Particulars concerning
the organization of brandies or mem
bership at large will be supplied on
i ci quest to the Scretary, Nations,
lie.fense League, District National
Hank Building, Washington, I). C.
The membership fee is only $2 per
year. Heretofore a few members hav .
paid all the expenses of the organiza
Some patriotic man or woman in
tiiis city is urged to start the move
ment here for a branch of the League.
The League is anxious to establish a
c ntre of influence in this city.
Every European country has similar
organizations, which explains in a
great measure, tlie thorough prepare J
ness for National defense of the.;-*
countries. The German Naval Leagu >
a.one has more than a million mem
bers. Even schoolboys belonging to
the German organization.
The National Defense Dengue has
now arrived at the point where it is
desirable to increase its membership
ai.d the scope ot‘ its activities for the
nation, hence this appeal to all patri
otic citizens in this section.
The movement to strengthen a.id
increase the membership of tuo
League is especially timely in view
ot the startling European situation,
which has caused with a feeling rf
alarm, many persons in the United
States who are aware of our present
.< onuparative defenselessness, to re
flect on the possible fate of this coun
try in event of a sudden war with a
first class power.
The executive committee which
manages the affairs of the League, in
cludes Representative Julius Kahn, of
California, chairman; Representative
Robert F. Broussard, of Louisiana,
vice-chairman; Representative Ernest
W. Roberts of Massachusetts; Hon.
James U. Blount, of Georgia, general
counsei; Winfield Jones, Washington,

In a statement for this paper. Chair
man Kahn says:
••Tim present war crisis ought to
prove a lesson to the people of the
United States. It Is an apt illustra
tion of the suddenness with which war
comes. Jt should teach us that we
must he prepared for any and every
possible emergency. It ”'oves the
wisdom of those who favored and m
fisted on the fortification of the I’an.t
ma Canal, despite the protests of the
so-called peace propagandists. The
recollection that England seized the
Suez Canal in 1SS2 and c.osed it for
ihiet days to the vessels of a!! natio- -
and even those of the Suez Canal Co.
itself, ought to have been a sufl'i
cient argument in favor of fortifica
tion. Hut we were told that the wor d
has advanced. That our treaties
would protect our waterway. Trea
ties, indeed! What has become of the
neutrality treaties concerning Luxem
burg and Belgium. They have been
broken as though they had been ropes
"Some of our fatuous statesmen
would have us 'scuttle' from the i’hi.
ippines after having their neutrality
guaranteed by all the world powers.
It must now be evident to even the
casual observer that such a treaty
would not be worth the paper on
which it is written, if it should be
come necessary or convenient for
some of the great powers to break it.
"Today we stand Isolated and alone
in world politics. We cannot count
upon tlie friendship of a single nation.
We must be ready to stand alone and
by ourselves in every international
emergency. Therefore, it is essen
tial, nay more, it is absolutely neces
sary that we maintain our Army and
our Navy In such a state of prepared
ness that our national honor will be
protected and upheld, come what
"We want a branch League in your
city, and the assistance ol your peo

I believe the Moody Bath House will compare favorably with any
