Washington, Nov. 0. Renewing as

today followed up his attack on the
executive's preparedness program with
another statement. In this, lie declared
he has no plans made for his future
course concerning the military pro
gram. "I have no plans formulated." he
said. "I am doing what I believe to be
the duty of every citizen.
"How can the president know that

plan do not hesitate to express them
selves. Why should those who differ

"A great many think that the quar

is enough for preparedness and are op

hard to prove in view of tho president's
statement' 'wo are not threatened and

body knows our defense capacity and
wo are without fear."
It is believed that many bodies were
piled up when tenants of the upper
floors were cut off from escape from
down stairways because of the flames
below. The fire started on the second
floor, occupied by the Essex shirt fac
