1; OF THE
National Defense Structure Being
Projected in Country's Reor
Washington, Oct. 29. Two les
sons of the world war, learned at
heavy cost, are sharply emphasized in
a war department bulletin son to Le
issued giving the first official picture
of the new national defense structure
projected in the reorganized army of
the United States. One lesson comes
direct from the batlefields of France.
It is that efficient staff work is vital
to modern military operations, and
with it goes the correlary that staff
The other comes from the war
time din and confusion of the cen
tralized training camps at home. It is
that efficient mobilization of the na
tion's fighting strength can be car
ried out only as a decentralized pro
cess thru agencies set up in times of
Realization that these lessons
must be worked Into the new mili
tary policy if perilous delay and cost
ly confusion which preceded past mo
bilizations were to be avoided has
marked the effort of the war depart
ment. The bulletin shows that it
has attempted to write regulations
under the revised national defense
act that would furnish a clean cut
scheme for war mobilization without
violating national traditions against
militarism or creating machinery
that would impose heavy burdens in
peace times upon the tax-payers.
Far Reaching Military Effort
The project undertaken probably
is the most far reaching military ef
fort the nation has ever attempted
in peace times.
The foundation work has been
ione. All over the country decentral
ized machinery is being set up cap
able, its designers believe, of getting
he nation on a war footing with
little delay and confusion. Yet it
is felt that the nation at large and
even the most important links in the
new defense chain, the regular army,
the national guard and the officers
reserve corps do not appreciate ful
ly what is being done.
Col. John McA. Palmer, the officer
asigned to aid congress in framing
the legislation making it all possible
and who has devoted himself to a
study of the subject, was called upon
to furnish the document and his
work is to go to all parts of the
new army as a means of preventing
Colonel Palmer points out that at
the conclusion of previous wars, the
United States scrapped all it had
learned in battle and demobilized
without any attempt to carry costly
lessons on to younger generations for
their protection and aid in time of
war. Veterans of the civil war,
schooled in soldier craft, skilled in
staff work and the handlling of
mighty forces with minimum con
fnsion in movement and minimum
losses in battle, went back to civil
life, he says, and lost all touch with
military matters. When the war with
Spain came, their knowledge was lost
to the men of 1898. It was necessary
to rebuild again from the ground up,
and 1917 saw this waste repeated,,
the bulletin asserts.
Welding Three Organizations.
The purpose of the new scheme of
welding the regulars, the national
guard and the organized reserves in
to the army of the United States in
peace times is defined by Colonel
Palmer as follows:
"It is primarily the object of our
new law to perpetuate the frame
work of the organization developed
in the world war so that its tremen
dous cost can be funded as a perman
ent Investment for all time."
Had such a system as is now well
advanced tward establishment been
erected after the civil war, the offic
er adds, "in 1898 more divisions than
were needed for the war with Spain
could have begun their expansion
within twenty-four hours after the
declartion of hostilities."
"Mobilization in 1917," Colonel
Palmer continues, "would have pro
ceeded as a decentralized progress
upsetting the economic life of the
nation. It would not have been ne
cessary to spend millions for great
concentrated training camps or to
overbuden the railroads with un
classified personnel and material in
order to organize, and train, and
equip, and provide officers all at the
same time. Such a national organi
zation must have saved months in
time and millions in money."
Colonel Palmer points out that
Stonewall Jackson one of . leaders
on either side in the civil war enter
ed the contest with knowledge of
what staff work meant. He had
studied Napoleons troop orders and in
the first battle of the war, Colonel
Palmer says, "showed that even raw
troops can stand like a stone wall if
the prevalent rawness does not ex
tend to the craftsmanship of the
