Secretary of War Told Army
Measure Is Unsound.
Trainlny Camps Official Gives In
dorsement to K fori-Chamber-Iain
Proposed Act.
Vaahlna-ton. Oct. C Protest ia made
gainst the Baker-March army bill
in a strong- letter addressed to Newton
X. Baker, secretary of war. by Major
Tompkins Mcllvaine. acting; chairman
of the executive committee of the
military training camps association.
Major Mclivalne declares that the
Baker-March bill is a patchwork and
thoroughly unsound. In the same
letter he gives unqualified Indorse
Trent to the Kahn-Chamberlaln bill
for universal military training-.
He says:
"In my opinion the Baker-March
bill in its main features Is thoroughly
unsound and would perpetuate our
worst mistakes. It provides for
standing army or some 509.000. peace
strength, and for three months' train
ing (for. rather, half training, since
in. period or training should be six,
not three months) of the male youth
of the country during their 20th year.
"No attempt is made to organise
the young men so half trained into a
citisen army and to give to any se
lected percentage of them the further
progressive training necessary to
qualify those selected to become re
serve officers, non-commissioned of
fleers and enlisted specialists, with'
out whom no citisen army can be or
ganixed and without whom we must
reiy solely on professionals.
There is a great difference be
tween half-training and then turn
ing loose a number of young men
as private soldiers, and creating an
organixation. a citlxen army, that
can be mobilized In an emergency,
and that, when mobilixed. will be
ready to take the field and func
tion efficiently.
Leaders Xeed Training.
"This administration bill alto
rcther loses sight of the fact that
K takes longer to train officers, non
commissioned officers and enlisted
specialists than it does the privates.
Without training these leaders in ad
vance, it is. from the citixen army
standpoint, largely a waste of time
and money to train the private sol
Major Mcllvaine expresses doubt
as to the efficiency of giving educa
tional and vocational training to en
listed men as a stimulus to enlist
ment. He believes the strength of
the regular army will be no larger
in the future than In the past. In
the event of war it would be neces
aary to raise a citixen army again,
as it would be a mistake to assume
that the regular forces alone could
fight our battles, he adds. The
Baker-March bill, therefore, leaves
the country in the same position from
a military standpoint as it was be
fore the war. he contends. Continu
ing, he says:
"From the military standpoint the
universal training provisions are
valueless because: First, the period
of training is too short; second, the
young men trained are not organised
territorially, according to the places
of residence, into a reserve; third.
no adequate provision is made for the
training of citizens as officers, non
commissioned officers and enlisted
specialists to act as leaders of the
citixen army; fourth, because no citi
zen, not even the half-trained young
men. can be summoned to the colors
or organised into units until after
a formal declaration of war, and
even then we shall have to wait until,
through the slow machinery of the
draft law. they can be registered, ex
amined, selected, called to the colors
nd knit into some organization.
Bill la Called rate-work.
-As a whole the bill Is really as
bad as can be. Iteems like patch
work, not the logical development
ot a practicable system."
- On the other band, writes Major
Mcllvaine. the Kahn - Chamberlain
bill provides a citixen army system
based on the American and demo
cratic principles of equality of obli
gation and opportunity for all. This
system has been tried out In Switzer
land and Australia, and has proved
a success, he asserts. The Kahn
Chamberlaln bill, he says, provides
an adequate system of national de
fense which will cost less by hun
dreds of millions of dollars than the
Baker-March bill.
A universal six months training
for youths in their 19th or 20th year,
at option, with further progressive
training for those who desire to be
come officers or non-commissioned
officers, is provided In the Kahn
Chamberlaln bill.

SALEM, Or., Oct 6. (Special.)
Formal announcement of assignments
and special appointment for pastors
for the ensuing year by Bishop
Matthew Simpson Hughes, selection
of McMinnvllle as the next meeting
place, and adoption of a resolution
addressed to the United States senate
urging Immediate acceptance of the
peace treaty and league of nations.
with reservation of the Shantung
province clause, featured the closing
sessions of the 67th annual Oregon
conference of the Methodist Episcopal
church, which adjourned here early
this afternoon.
A motion to adopt a resolution ask
ing ratification of the treaty without
reservations met bitter opposition by
Bishop Hughes, who characterized the
Shantung clause as "one of the most
iniquitous things ever written into
a peace contract in the history of the
"I would dielike to have It known,"
continued the bishop, "that I presided
at a conference that approved such a
shameful thing. Neither would I have
it known that I am in favor of a
treaty made in secrecy and in favor
of an oriental nation."
It was then suggested that discus
sion of the Shantung clause, as it af
fected the peace treaty, be taken up
later but this was opposed by the
bishop who declared:
"The time to settle this is right
now, and there is no better place to
settle It than in the United States
senate where it is now under con
sideration. And I will wager that
.the treaty will be ratified, omitting
the Shantung provision, and not af
fecting the sterling qualities of the
league of nations."
"The conference Is not the place to
take up matters political," voiced
some one In the church. "This is not
matter of political expediency." re
torted the bishop. "This is a matter
of moral expediency, affecting the
lives and, yes, the souls of people, and
this church could not express itself
in a greater matter. I am sure this
conference will express Itself In fa
vor of a league of nations, but we
cannot, as ministers of the gospel,
ask the United States senate or any
other body to ratify any provision
that is iniquitous and is so recognized
by the people of this land."
A resolution congratulating Hughes,
and the mother of so worthy a man
as our resident bishop," was adopted.
Bishop Hughes was retained in his
present position by unanimous vote
of the conference. Resolutions also
were adopted by the conference In
appreciation of the reception tend
ered to the delegates by the people
of Salem, and thanking the press for
the unbiased and true reports of the

Because of an unprecedented short
