By Kent E. Hunter.
. Columbus, N. M., May l.-r(I. N.
fi.) Machine guns will solve another
' International trouble to which the
. United State la a party. Just as ma
hbie runs have solved the war prob
lem In Europe by deadlocking 10,000,
000 men In trenches within a few
i yards of each other.
. This Is the opinion of Major Henry
Parker of the twenty-fourth infantry,
author of two books on machine gun
construction and a recognized expert
.on tha principles of rapid fire ma
chinery!; In furtherance of his idea. Major
, Parker has. worked out a Dlan for ro-
- duclng 'excess weight and at the same
time Increasing the defensive power
, of the motor truck trains that now are
tha sole method of communication be
" tween the base here and General Per
shing's scattered units In Mexico.
. Major Parker's Hovel Plan.
Throughout the armories of the
United States are hundreds of machine
stubs. They are of patterns now re-
carded as obsolete by the government,
Vbut which are nevertheless in good
.forking order. Major Parker pro
poses to call In these guns, mount
v," them one to a truck and put a ma-
V chins gun operator on as a guard in
place of the two or three guards now
Atslgned to each truck armed with the
f regulation Springfield rifle.
"The different makes of machine
, guns tried out by the army and dls
, carded for one defect or another could
be put in cradles on each truck," said
. Major Parker. "To awing the trucks

attack would he but the work of a

V artillery is used.
;r tittle Banger rrom Artillery.
f "And along the roads and trails
traveled by motor trucks there is
mighty little chance of running into
artillery. Artillery might force the
, trucks to run. That would make a
S;' moving target, with comparatively
"i small danger from shell fire, and still
; ' would not effectively stop the fire
)of 'the machine guns on the trucks."
- A mechanic's plan of the gun cradle
proposed by Major Parker, with stat
istics prepared by him on the number
of machine guns available and the
number of operators of such guns
, . that can be mustered for service for
th present enlistment of the army;
