GREEKS BLAMED FOR
BATTLE OF LUDLOW
slenver. Absolute responsibility for
the fntal battle of Ludlow, Monday,
April 20, was placed on the Greeks of
the strikers' colony nt Ludlow by the
military board of the Colorado Na
None of the strikers testified at the
inquiry, their attorney declining to
give any Information on the ground
thnt the Inquiry was not publicly con
ducted. The board found that the "remote"
cause of this, as well as all other bat
tles, lies with the coal operators, who
established In an American Industrial
community a numerous class of Igno
rant, lawless and savage South Eu
ropean peasants. The underlying
cause was the presence, near Ludlow,
In dally contact, of three discordant
elements strikers, soldiers and mine
guards nil armed and fostering an In
creasing deadly hatred
The Immediate cause of the battle
was an Attack upon the soldiers by the
Greek Inhabitants of the tent colony
who misinterpreted h movement of
troops on a neighboring hill.

A RESERVE ARMY IS
AMERICA'S GREAT NEED
Must Have it to Maintain
our Position Says
ADVOCATES SUMMER CAMPS
New Hnven, Conn. Just oerore the
outbreak of the wsr with Mexico Gen
erul Wood, couitnnndlng general of the
army, asserted tbnt the United States
needed a lurge reserve nnny, not for
war. but to prevent war.
General Wood originated the Idea of
students' cniups of military Instruc
tion, nnd he wns working up enthusiasm
among collegians for the four cunips
which will lie held this summer. He
holds they will do much to develop offi
cers for a volunteer anny If needed.
"There Is a good reason for these
enmps," he'snld In addressing the Ynle
students "The United States, always
s great power, has recently Iwcome a
world power In the broadest sense of
the term. All sorts of now responsibil
ities are confronting us. We in the
army do not believe In a large standing
army, but we are all of us believers la
s well prepared people Itcllevcrs in
that preparedness docs not mean war,
but thnt It means avoidance of war.
We know that arbltrntlon Is very
effective. Every soldier works for ar
nitration. Just as every life saver on
the beach works for any apparatus or
device which will minimize the risk of

duty to go Into the storm when It
comes, but be Is going to try to avoid
all unnecessary losa of life.
"We men responsible for the military
preparedness of the country aud I
menu preparedness In the technical
sense- are doing si 11 we cuu to get the
country ready. We know perfectly
well that Hie regular army Is ouly a
drop In the bucket and that when the
uillltln Is milled you get but a slightly
larger drop. Consider that In the civil
war there were more than 2.01)0,000
men In the army of the north ami more
than I .oou.ooo in the army of the south
and then you will realise that our call
for 500.IMX) competent men Is mot n

arm), but we want to see this idea
worked out us In Swltserlnnd, where
the bulk of the pie have bad a mili
tary training without Interfering with
their economic or professional lives.
This sums up what we want to do. No
nation has ever lived which allowed
other people to do Its work or Its tight
lug. It Is all right to talk about arbi
tration, but there are certulu vital
questlous which can never be arbi
trated. They must be fought out
"lu this cotititiy we must look to our
volunteers In time of war. The great
bulk of our fighting force comes from
the people themselves. First comes
the regular army, then the mllltla. but
the greatest numbers and strength are
from the volunteer forces. We can't
take officers from the regular army
and from the mllltla to direct these
great numbers We must Instruct u
