Dy JOHN DICKINSON SHERMAN
T IS to he assumed that nobody now
wants another world war. Hut tho
possibility and tho dread of It are
ever with us. Professional soldiers
are studying the last one In search
of guidance for the next one. The
United States War department is
preparing a comprehensive plan for
the Industrial mobilization of tho
nation in ease of war. Nations arc
experimenting openly with nlrplunca
nnd bombs and, doubtless, In secret with gas. The
presses are kept busy printing hooks on the "next
Abroad nations seem to he running a race In
developing the airplane as the coming weapon of
war. The United States seems to he lagging be
hind In this development to such an extent that
the American Legion has proposed to nsk Presi
dent Coollilge to call an International conference
to halt this rare by limitation of air armaments.
If our aviation accomplishments are compara
tively of little Importance, what must be the devel
opment! abroad? UultcJ States naval seaplanes
bombed and sank In short order two battleships
slated for the scrap heap.
Twenty-three United States army airplanes, in
cluding sixteen huge bombers, made a flight of
800 miles from Virginia to Maine and gave tho
Atlantic coast an object lesson. A transcontinental
aerial mall schedule of thirty hours from coast to
coast shows that night (lying, an essential of mili
tary aviation, Is practical. A navy Curtis racer,
piloted by a naval ofllcer, traveled at tho rate of
more than four miles n mlnuto and again nt tho
rate of 'Jo. miles an hour.
The Hurling bomber, the world's largest air
plane, successfully completed Its mnlden trip at
Wilbur Wright Hold. The bomber has a wing
rpread of VJO feet. Loaded, It weighs twenty tons.
It has six Liberty motors of 400 horsepower each
and two pushing and four pulling propellers. It
will May In tho air twelve hours and fly about
110 miles an hour.
The United States nnval dlrlglblo ZR-1 success
fully made a twclve-hoilr flight of COO miles over
New York, Philadelphia and cltlps of the Atlantic
Now all of these feats In air travel wore Immedi
ately translated Into terms of war. For Instance,
Commander Italph D. Weyerbachcr, U. S. N de
signer and builder of tho ZR-1. declares In n
printed statement that hnd the aerial superdread
naught flown over New York on a warlike errand
It would lmvo been an easy matter to have Oe
Mroyod public buildings, smashed great holes In
the crowded streets and reduced the metropolis to
a btate of panic.
"Had she carried tho five tons of high explosivco
the ZR-1 can float, wo could have wrecked th
guns of Forts Hamilton and Wadsworth and lifted
the seagoing Aqultanla from the water, to say noth
ing of the lesser craft In tho harbor," he wrote.
"I could not help thinking as we circled Manhattan
what grievous destruction may bo wrought by
aerial bombing over large cities ir such floating
battleships as tlio HIM can be developed to a
point where they can successfully resist counter
attack." Commander Woyorbncher translated the possl
blllths of tho ZIM Into terms of explosives.
Others talk about gas. Whole armies put to sleep
and taken prisoner In gas warfure Is by no means
an Impossibility twenty-five years hence, Col. Ray
mond F. Tien con, chief of tlio technical division of
tho chemical warfare service, A. 10. F., says In n
description of the possibilities of tlio fututo art
of war made public by the American Chemlcnl
society. He says:
"To say the use of gas In wnrfare must be abol
ished Is almost the same as saying that no prog
ress must ho made In the art of warfare toward
making It more efllclent and moro humane. With
tho use of gas It Is posslblo to saturate a piece of
ground so that no troops can cross It, and thus
make an artlflclul barrier for the flank or protect
the lines of communication.
S&i v v
MnJ. Victor Lefehure In his work, "The Riddle
of tho Rhine," predicts that the next war will be
a war particularly of chemistry. He dwells on
the possibilities of the combination of gas and
nlreraft, and he warns that no prohibition or agree
ment Is going to stop tho uso of such weapons
when national existence Is believed to be at stake.
Hut it Is Col. .1. F. C. Fuller, D. H. O., who car
ries this talk of a chemical war to Its logical con
clusion In his new book, "The Reformation of
War." lie Is an Knglishman nnd a professional
soldier who knows war both In theory and prac
tice. Ills book gives us pen pictures of war as It
will be fought when the lighting airplane, tanks
nnd gas reach the full matuilty of their terrible
Colonel Fuller's basic proposition Is that "war
Is of tho Inevitable." Ho has the Utmost contempt
for peace talk, disarmament propositions, ami the
outlawing of certain weapons and certain methods
of lighting. He believes that when war comes
nations will use the most efllclent wenpon avail
able, bo It what It may. Ho asserts that the tra
ditional soldier Is doomed, that In the coming war
our present-day armies and navies will bo value
less, that the World war will be the last of Its
kind. Up to near the end of the last great struggle,
ho says, war was of two dimensions. Tho air
plane made war three dlmenslonnl. What Is tho
use of armies fighting. If airplanes can leap the
armies and carry tho war to the heart of tho
enemy's country. The airplane, however, is a mere
means of transportation for gns, the most efllclent
means of destruction the world has yet seen. He
says 7,!!00 bullets a minute cnn be fired In shrapnel
from a field gun nnd then says:
"flas Is, however, composed of chemical mole
cules each of which can disable; consequently,
the projectiles of n gas bombardment cannot bo
reckoned by thousands per minute, but by thou
sands of trillions. In fact, so Immense a number
Hint It Is not even necessary to know the position
of the target; all that Is necessary Is to know In
what area It Is, and then to Inundate this area.
Unlike a bullet, the effect of gas does not cease
once the forco generated to propel It Is spent, for,
while tho bullet Is 'dead' the gas molecule is
'ullve,' and mny remnln alive for days after gas
has been projected. If tho render can Imagine a
machine gun which can fire millions of bullets
a 6econd, cacti bullet drifting on nfter the forco
of tho original discharge has been spent, creeping
through trees and houses, wandering over walls
and Into shelters and dugouts, then he will have
some Idea how gas cnn be used to economize mili
Colonel Fuller says tho "traditional soldier" will
he succeeded by the "war scientist," whose strat
egy will be to attack the nerves rnthor than tho
bodies of tho enemy. "The brute forco theory of
traditional warfare" ,lll go; In Its place will be
"the direct attack on the hourco of all military
power the nerves and will of the civil popu
latlon." Ho snys:
"A nation which deftroys the economic resources
of Its enemy, destroy.? Its eventual markets, and
thus wounds Itself. War must entail some less,
hut tho less Jbls Iokn Is the greater will he tho
victory; consequentl), the military object of a
nation Is not to kill and destroy, hut to enforce
the policy of Its gownment with the least pos
sible loss of honoi, llf.. and property. If the enemy
can bo compelled to aecept the hostile policy with
out battle, so much tho better. If ho opposes It
by military force, then It should never bo forgot
ten that tho strength of this forco rests on the
will of the government which employs It, and that,
In Its turn, this will rwds on the will of tho nation
which this government represents. If tlio will of
the nation cannot be directly attacked, then must
the will of the army protecting It he broken. In
the past this will has been attacked by attacking
the flesh of the soldiers, ami so consistent has this
been, that tho idea lias arisen that the military
object of war Is to kill and destroy. Thus, In the
popular and military imaginations, tho means have
obscured the end ; consequently, tho prevailing Idea
of all patties In tho recent war was destruction,
to destroy each other, and so blinded wore .'they
by tho means that they could not see that In the
very net they were destroying themselves, not only
during tho wnr, but In the peace which must some
duy follow tho war.
"I believe that the world U hlowly learning this

Tho genuine bears filgnnturo of
lesson, and thnt, ns In my opinion wars are Inev
itable, the old Idea of warfaro based on destruc
tion will he replaced by a new military Ideal, the
Imposition of will at the leant possible general
loss. If this be so, then the means of warfaro
must he changed, for the present means nro means
of killing, means of blood ; they must be replaced
by terrifying means, means of mind. The present
Implements of war must be scrapped, and these
bloody tools must ho replaced by weapons the
moral effect of which Is so terrific that a nation
attacked by them will lose Its mental balance and
will compel Its government to accept tho hostile
policy without further demur."
This strategy will endenvor to "petrify tho
human mind with fear" ami will send groat fleets
of airplanes to make gas attacks on tho nerve
centers of the enemy nation. Colonel Fuller says:
"A few years ago armies alono went forth to
battle; today entire nations go to war, not only
ns soldiers, hut as the moral and material suppliers
of aoldiers. Tills being so, we llnd that, while a
short time bnck It was clearly possible to differen
tiate between the military and ethical objective of
nations at war, today this differentiation Is becom
ing more and more complex; so much so that both
these objectives are likely to coincide, and, when
this takes place, to attack the civilian workers of
a nation will then be as Justifiable an act of war
as to attack Its soldiers."
Colonel Fuller then points out that the first gas
used In tho World war was of a lethal nature.
Hut nt tho third battle of Ypres the Germans used
mustard gas and disclosed to the world the possi
bilities of gas warfare, lie cays.
"Respirators to a great extent were now use
less, for the persistent and vesicant nature of this
chemical rendered whole areas, for days on end,
uninhabitable and dangerous to cross. Men car
ried the oily liquid on their clothes, on the mud
of their boots, and Infected dugouts, billets and
rest camps far back on tho lines of communication.
Few died, hut many were Incapacitated for months
on end. Here, curious to relate, Is the true power
wof gas as n weapon It can Incapacitate without
killing. A dead mnn says nothing, and, when once
hurled, Is no Incumbrance to tho survivors. A
wounded man will spread tho wildest of rumors,
will exaggerate dangers, foster panic and -equlres
the attention of others to heal lilm until he dies
or Is cured, he Is n military Incumbrance and a
demoralizing agent. (!as Is, par excellence, the
weapon of demoralization, and, as It can terrorize
without necessarily killing, It, more than any other
known weapon, can enforce economically the policy
of one nation on another. ...
"I believe that In future warfaro great cities,
such as London, will be nttacked from the air
and that a fleet of fiOO airplanes each carrying fi00
ten-pound bombs of, let us suppose, mustard gas,
might uuse 200,000 minor casualties and throw
the whole city Into panic wlhln half an hour of
their arrival. Picture, If you can, what the result
will he I London for several days will be one vast
raving bedlam, the hospitals will ho stormed,
trafllc will cease, tho homeless will shriek for help,
tho city will be In pandemonium What of the
government at Westminster? It will be swept
away by an avalanche 'of terror. Then will the
enemy dictate Ids terms, which will he grn.ped
at like a straw by a drowning man. Thus may
a war bo won In forty-eight hours and the looses
of tho winning side may be actually nil I"
Colonel Fuller's conclusion Is this: "That side,"
ho says, "which gains supremacy In invention ami
design Is th s!do which Is going to win the next
war." And again: "If mechanically both sides nro
equal, then on vnlor, obedience am) self-sacrifice
of tho soldier will victory depend. Hut If one
side relies on these virtues alono, nnd neglects
to safeguard them by tho most powerful weapons
obtainable, then will they be of lit f lo value, as
little as all the valor of tho Sudanese at Oiii
History shows, of course, that warfare has been
"revolutionized" a score of times by vnrlous Inven
tions In the ascent from clubs to 7r-mlle rango
cannon. Hut Invariably tho fffenso has been later
inatched by the defense. Perhaps tho alrplano
has already temporarily been rendered useless
