CONSCRIPTION BILL DP IN BOTH HOUSES Senator Weeks Says People Will Demand Draft Soon as They Understand Facts. DENT OPENS DISCUSSION Washington, April 23. Represen tative Lunn, democrat, and formerly socialist mayor of Schenectady, N. Y urged conscription in his speech in the house during discussion of the army bill this afternoon. Mr. Lunn said that in voting to give the presi dent all the power and resources of the country for carrying out the war he and others took that action literal ly and without eauivocation. Representative Lunn aroused laugh ter and applause by suggesting mat an amendment be written into the bill making it necessary to give sol diers already in the service a second bpportunky to enlist in order that their services might be wholly demo cratic. Loud applause greeted his re marks. Representative Eagle of Texas in terrupted Lunn to say that nis ornce was being flooded with protests against conscription signed by the same persons who a year ago were pleading the cause ot Germany. Mr. Dent Opens Debate. The house bill, as reported by a maioritv of the committee, provided for the volunteer enlistment with con scription only as a last resort and the fight for this measure was led by Chairman Dent ot the military com mittee, whose supporters felt sure that they would make a good show ing. A strong -element in the house, however, balked the selective con scription plan advocated by the army general staff and recommended by the military committee minority, led by Representative Kahn of California, a republican. In the aenate the bill under consid eration was the general staff's meas ure. In opening the senate debate Sen ator Weeks said the people demand conscription or would demand it if thev were correctly informed. When the house began debate no limit was fixed, but it was agreed that it should run on today until 6 o'clock. Chairman Dent of the military com mittee, who favors a call for volun teers while the conscription registra tion machinery is being made ready, opened the debate. Mr. Dent explained that the bill as amended by the committee gives au thority to raise an army.ot practic ally 1,000,000 men and "safeguards the American birthright to volunteer for service in defense of the country." The president, he said, is still au thorized to proceed with arrange ments with the selective draft and has absolute authority to determine on which system the army would be raised. .
