Army Heada Want 100,000 Soldier.
The mobilization or tbe national
guard for border service waa described
aa a military failure, emphasizing tba
urgent necessity of abandoning tb
volunteer ystem aa the natlon'a reli
ance for defense. In' statement by
Major General Hugh L. Scott, chief of
staff of the army, and Major-General
Leonard Wood, commanding the east
ern department, before tbe aenate aub
commlttee considering tbe Chamber
lain universal military training bill.
Both of tbe generala advocated uni
versal training. General Wood de
clared that tbe country now waa utter
ly defenseless against a well-organized ,
foe; that the mobilization waa tra
gedy, and that if the guardsmen had
met good troops they "would never
have known what bit them." General
Scott told the committee that lesson
drawn from the present war proved
that in case of war with a fint-claaa
power tbe United State would need,
immediately a trained force of 1.500,
000 men, with another 1,500.000 avail
able within 90 days.
