THE UNIVERSAL DRAFT PROPOSAL
National Commander Spafford of the American Le
gion, m his address at Salem Monday night, explained to
the ia.rge audience the program of the organization in re
gard to the universal draft. In case of another war, the
president would be empowered to draft industries as well
as man power. No industrial plant of any description
would be allowed to operate at a profit during the period
of the war.
If this law is passed, and the speaker believed that
it would be, it probably would have more to do toward
the prevention of war than anything that possibly could
be done. No nation, or group of nations, in the world
would care to tackle the U. S. A. knowing that the total
resources of this great nation could be immediately di
verted to the prosecution of the conflict.
Certainly there is no less authority given in the Con
stitution for drafting the implements of war than drafting
the manpower of the nation. In time of war everyone
should be subject to the same rules, poor and rich alike.
