I am not a militarist. Mr.
Roottevelt said. There are very
few ot our fellow citizens who
are. but the great majority of
them will agree with me In the
demand that the United States
shall maintain at all times an
army and navy wholly adequate
lor national defense. That Is tbe
startlag point. The resulting
question immediately arises
what Is an adequate army or
"Our navy, for Instance. Is at
the present time In seconHplace.
It is very nearly equal to the navy
of Great Britain. It is more pow
erful than the navy of France or
"Let is examine the future. We
bave three courses open. The
first is to reduce our army and
ravy without regard to what the
other, nations or the world are
I feel certain that tbe people
of this country will never stand
fcr the danger that that Involves.
"Tbe second Is, we may return
to the old pre-war condition ot
competitive building between the
great nations. That will mean,
without question, an Increase In
the already enormous cost which
we sre sustaining.
"The third alternative Is the
league of nations itself. The pri
mary purpose of that league Is
anti-war. and one of its first du
ties will be the limitation ot in

doubt that If the great powers
meet around the table they
