WOOD THINKS ARMY
WEAK SPOTS POINTED OUT
Urges Passage of Volunteer Army
Bill, the Present System Having
Washington. Major General Wood,
chief of staff, paints a rather gloomy
picture of the lack of preparedness
of the army in case of war, in his
annual report to the secretary of war,
made public Friday.
There were weak spots in many di
rections, he said, and most serious
was the shortage of field artillery
and ammunition, a fault which shouid
be immediately corrected. General
Wood declared there was a great lack
of reserve seacost ammunition and
that, at the present rate of appro
priation by congress, it would take
more than fifty years to obtain a rea
sonable supply of ammunition for the
coast defense and a still longer time
to otain the necessary artillery and
If the regular army and organized
militia at war strength were called
to arms today, said General Wood,
there would be a shortage of more
than 50 per cent in the field artillery
necessary to equip them. This force
would represent only a portion of the
force called to arms in case of war
with a first class power.
General Wood strongly urged the
passage by congress of the pending
bill for raising a volunteer army in
time of war. He said this would cost
nothing in time of peace and would
save the government millions of dol
lars in time of war.
The present law was so unsatisfac
tory and vague that the general staff
could not make preparations in ad
vance for its execution in event of
Other needs of the military service
were set out in the report, including
the addition of filO officers to replace
those detailed from line duties for
staff and militia work; the creation
of a reserve of not less than 300.000
men who have served in the army or
rnilitia; the concentration of the
army in largo posts; the re-establishment
of the canteen and the increase
of the signal corps and the acquisi
tion of aeroplanes.
