Washington, Jan. 25. Prealdent
Wilton declared this afternoon that
perhaps the real solution of the pre

tem does not meet the "difficulties"
facing the country In Ita efforts to
establish adequate defenae. At the
same time he admitted that "physical
training la needed" and declared the
legislative and executive branches of
the government are giving serious

UntimaUoa That Leaks in Information
; Come Secant) of Faulty
' Codes
Washington, Jan. 25. Confiden
tial measages of the stata depart
ment have leaked because the state
department codes are known abroad,
the state department has reason to
believe, a high official stated today.
Because of this the codes have
been altered from time to time and
It Is hinted they have been changed
only recently. , Charges that the
codes are known abroad have torn
made frequently. Until today, how
ever, the department never has ad
mitted Its hellef that the code is
In foreign hands. .
In view of the houseleak com
mittees query as to whether New
York brokers had information from
abroad on the president's . recent
peace acts, the admission from the
state department today appeared sig
nificant. It may mean that thla gov
ernment means to trace leaks abroad
rather than to Washington.
Albout nine months ago the United
Press carried a dispatch from Berlin
to the effect that keys of United
SUtes codes bad become known in
many Kuropean capitals and that
knowledge of this had caused sud
den altering of the codes need by
this government.
