Th President believes the time has
come for the United States' to decide on
a definite programme of National de
fense and desires strongly that as little
friction as possible shall develop over
the question when It Is presented to the
two houses of Congress. He will not
decide In his own mind on the pro
gramme required until he has examined
the reports of Mr. Garrison and Mr.
Daniels and has received th views of

Through the chairmen of th military
and Naval affairs committees of the
two houses of Congress the President
expects the members of these commit
tees to give and receive ideas before

Army and Navy Items, com up for dis
cussion. The plan of th President Is to con
sider carefully a programme of Na
tional defense after free consultation
with others and then to throw the en
tire weight of the Administration be
