Washington, Dec. 8. America must ie prepared to "take the immediate efensive" in the air. in case', oL. war, and to so expand air -strength that it eventually can assume its ot'fensive, General Tershino; declared today in us annual report as chief of staff of army. S This is the basis of our present de fensive policies with all our arms and should be considered a minimum," the general of th,e armies continued. "A very important part in such a uefon sive would be the operations of an ef fective air service.'' I General Pershing said he desired to call attention to this condition' of the air service today and the fact that .IS there existed a present shortage ot facilities and personnel for a complete ly balanced and adequate service oi this vital component oi defense.! 'No man can estimate with present certainty the value which can be as-1 gag' cribed in a few years to the possession tea of an adequate resourcefulness in the j air," he said. "It is certain, however, that the influence of air power. Will be- jI3 come increasingly great and that the j fee nation can not afford to iieglest this; II arm. . H! "The air service which we develop , should be capable of offensive appli-l'lf cation. This does not mean that we must immediately build an air service that could take the offensive against; any great power or group of powers. It does mean, however, that we should have a force that can take the imme diate defensive, and that can, during a reasonable period of operations ex pand to the strength required for an offensive." ' The report said the reserve of air planes for such a policy and even fa-j ciiities for personnel training ycre lacking, and that "industries andj the air. ways of our country are not pre paret for an emergency. ' " earnestly, hope, therefore," Gen eral Pershing added, "that early steps will be taken to bring about the effec tive cooperation of states with the;ag- encies of the National Government to tho effect that this vital need cart.be effectually filled." f , Discussing the. development oi tne army and posfc war organization?;, the general said he had "witnessed, with pprobation the accomplishment?.? Ci the present administration-in attain.mg efficiency 'and economy of operations, and it has been a source oi disti-nct price to observe v miiitarv personnel." He pointed ( however, that he regarded trie at' at, its present strength o-l2,U00 o t-ers and 125.00 men as" "below minimum required for eifetive We --wish' to announce to the people of Hickory that we are this week moving to the building on 14th Street, recently', occupied by Bryson-Snyder-Dillard Co.
