Baker Says Allegations of Extrava
gance and Favoritism Are
Washington. D. C. Nov. 16. A
blanket invitation to every citizen
having knowledge of "any irregular
ity or misconduct on the part of any,
agent, employe or officer of the war
department" to submit such evidence
for investigation was issued today by
Secretary Baker in reply to recent
criticism of the surplus property, di
vision, appearing in a New York
newspaper. The secretary's state
ment pledged thorough inquiry into
every accusation brought to the at
tention of the department.
Declaring that the articles referred
to charge, first that the war depart
ment bought too many supplies, and
stcond. that irregularities, favoritism
and profiteering have characterized
the disposal of surplus stocks, the
statement emphatically denied both
allegations. Supplies were bought.
it said, on the basis of an expected
longer duration of the war.
"Had the campaign of 1919 been
necessary", it said, "the American
armv would have been greater in
numbers than the combined French
and British armies in France."
The rapid demobilization of the
army, the statement continued, led
a vast accumulation of material
which, if dumped on the market
owuld have resulted in widespread
unemployment, with demobilized sol
dicrs and war workers jobless and
the economic condition of the coun
"The policies which were pursued
encouraged the resumption of indus
try, and America is the only country
activelv engaged in the war which
has up to this time attained full em
payment conditions,-' it added.
Total appropriations for the war
department from April 6. 191 1. to

was $l.r.. 700. 000. 000 which credit
and cost sales not yet turned in would
reduce to about $13,500,000,000.
Net Cost $13,000,000,000
"In other words." the statement
?aid. congress provided with an un
stinting hand and the war depart
ment took every step in its power to
prevent a shortage of any necessary
war material, and built its plan to
meet the great army in the process
of formation. There was no short
age. In spite of all this, however
out of a total of about $2".. 000. 000.-
000.000 appropriated, about $13,000.
