"Our military plans are guided
solely by requirement for the de

Major General Summerall in a re

that the network of good roads
now being constructed from coast

invaluable arteries of transport
and communication, should a na

WASHINGTON. J a p. 14.-

and must not only stop, look and

down by the Court, must, if nect
