A number of Poles. Serbs and Bohe

WASHINGTON. Feb. . Officers of
the Judge-Advocate-Oeneral's office
said today that any National Army sol
diers charged with plotting treason
would be tried by military courtmar
tlal and If found guilty would be liable
to the death penalty. No report on the
arrests at Camp Lewis had reached the
Judge-Advocate General.
iBTearlgatlaa Casaea First.
In the ordinary course tha division
commander would make no report on
such cases until the matter had been
carefully Investigated, and. In case
definite charges were filed, not until
the actual trial of those concerned had
been completed.
Action to be taken depends entirely
upon whether the men under arrest
were apprehended while still In the
military service or after they had been
discharged previously on grounds of
holding enemy sympathy. If still In
the service, they would ba dealt with
under military law.
If. however, the plotter were dis
charged from the Army and then ar
rested, tha military authorities would
simply report tha case to the Depart
ment of Justice and then hold the pris

and other branches of the Department
of Justice have co-operated with the
War Department. Upon the dismissal

No statistics have been made public
