WASHINGTON, D. Dec. 9.
America must be prepared to "take
the Immediate aefensive" in the air
in case of war, and to so expand its
air strength that it eventually can
assume its offensive, General Per
shing declared today in his annual
report as chief of staff of the army.
"This Is the basis of our present
defense policies with all our arms
and should be considered a mini
mum," the general of the armies
continued. "A very important part
in such a defensive would be the
operations of an effective air serv
ice." General Pershing said he desired
to call attention to the condition of
the air service today and the fact
that there existed a "present short
age of facilities and personnel for a
completely balanced and adequate
service of this vital component of
Air Influence Growing.
"No man can estimate with pres
ent certainty the value which can4
be ascribed in a few years to the
possession of an adequate resource
fulness in the air," he said. "It is
certain, however, that the influence
of air power will become increasing
ly great and that the nation cannot
afford to neglect this arm.
"The air service which we de
velop should be capable of offensive
application. This does not mean
that we must immediately build an
air service that could take the of
fensive against any great power or
proup of powers. It does mean,
however, that we should have a
force that can take the immediate
defensive, and that can, during a
reasonable period of operations, ex
pand to the strength required for
The report said the reserve of air
planes for such a policy and even
facilities for personnel training were
lacking, and that "industries and the.
air ways of our country are not
prepared for an emergency.
Early Action Asked.
"I earnestly hope, therefore,"
General Pershing added, "that early
steps will be taken to bring about
the effective co-operation of states
with the agencies of the national
provernment to the end that this
vital need can be effectually filled."
Discussing the development of the
army and post war reorganizations,
the general said he had "witnessed
with approbation the accomplish
ments of the present administration
in attaining efficiency and economy
of operation, and it has been a
source of distinct pride to observe
the response of our military per
sonnel." He pointed out, however,
that he regarded the army at its
present strength of 12,000 officers
and 125.000 men as "below the mini
mum required for effective perform
ance of our various missions."
Army Cut Deplored.
"It is. my conviction," he said,
'that our regular force is cut too
much for safety and that a strength
of at least 150,000 enlisted men and
13,000 officers should be perma
nently fixed as the minimum."
Outlining the plans of the depart
ment for future mobilizations, Gen
eral Pershing said:
"In our general plan for emer
gency mobilization, it is contem
plated that in a major eventuality
our regular army would expand
from its limited peace strength to
form nine infantry divisions; our
national guard, also kept at a very
low peace footing, would form IS
