or facilitate the war tasks of the gov
ernment has come out of such criti
cism and investigation. I understanil
that reorganizations by - legislation
are to be proposed I have not been
consulted about tbem and have
learned of them only at second hand
but. their proposal fame after ef
fective measures of ; reorganisation
had been thoughtfully and maturely
perfected, ad inasmuch as - these
measures have been the result of ex
perience, they are much more likely
than any other to be effective, if the
congress will but remove the fewf
stautory obstacles of rigid depart
mental organization which stands in
Baker's Ability Upheld,
The legislative proposals I have
heared of would involve long addi
tional delays and turn our experience
Into mere lost motion. My associa
tion and constant conference with
the secretary of war have taught me
to regard him as one of the ablest
public officials f have ever known.
The country will soon learn whether
he or bis critics understand the busi
ness In hand.,-
' "To add. as Senator Chamberlain
did, that there is inefficiency In ev
ery department and bureau of the
government, is to show such ignor
ance of actual conditions as to make i
is impossible to attach any Impor-1
tance to his statement. I am bound
to infer that' the. statement sprang
out of opposition to the administra
tion's whole policy "rather tbaa out
of any serious intention to reform
Its practice." -
flnXhis reply Senator Chamberlain
said! , ; . I' r- . : '
' jPhemberlaln Has fKiIanaiJon. '
"In my New York speech 1 had not
prepared the address and spoke
twenty minutes extemporaneously
without notes. I pointed out that
from Bunker Hill to the present time
we had had no military organization
or policy, The press report of my ad
dress was correct. But my argument
was directed to the military estab
lishment and ,not to - other depart
ments of the government, although
It was broad enough to be subject tq,
that Interpretation. Bat those hear
ing It knew I referred merely to the
military establishment and that the
senate military eommittee had un
dertaken, through the bills for a war
cabinet, and a director of munitions
to work, out changes in the establishment.'--.-
- ' ' ' '" '
"I explained that these bills were
not administration measures. I did
not misrepresent them. J
"Secretary Baker's efforts to bet
ter his organization have my utmost
approval.- He has made much Im
provement. But the inherent weak
ness of his reorganization Is that no
body between the army and the pres
ident has legal authority. There is
the council of national defense, the
war Industries board and the clear
ance commlttee-all purely volun
tary organizations between - the
president and the army. The war
cabinet and director of the muni
tions would be created by law with
definite legal powers and 'duties, re
spectively, to map out and direct
war policies and to have charge of
war supplies. By this plan we would
substitute a strong for the onlv weak
link In the chain of organization.

Tonight the president had a con
ference with Senator Martlne, Dent
ocratic floor leader, several other
senators and gate them his opinion
about Senator Chamberlain's bill. It
is understood there was a general
discussion of congressional Investi
gations ' and criticism of executive
departments. The first test of
strength on the committee proposals
probably will eome Thursday when.
Senator Chamberlain- announced, he
would demand reference of the war
cabinet bill to his committee. Sen

the naval committee, will oppose the
motion on the ground that the naval
committee should be consulted be

night that he would like for the
measures to lie over for several days
until their provisions and design be
come better understood. Hearings
