general debate on the army Increase
bill. Mora than two score members
expressed their views. The great
majority favored the committee bill,
which Is the most sweeping military
measure ever considered In the coun
try In peace times.
Hut Amrilmrili Offered.
Many amendments to be offered
were announced, however, and the
prospect of passing the bill by to
morrow night virtually vanished. It
may be late next week before the
final vote la taken.
In the senate Chairman Chamberlain
announced that he would seek to have
the military committees perfected army
hill taken up neat Monday. The water
power bill must be displaced to permit
this. President WlTson's appeal for haste
on nrensredness measures, It was thought
tonlcht, would lead the power
folates to yield their places
The failure of any organised opposi
tion to the purposes of the army bills to
sh3 Itself on the house floor led Rep
resentative Hay. chairman of the house
. ommlttee. to abandon the night session
provided for under the special rule wm n
elves tha bill rlaht of way. The arcu.
initiation of amendments to be offered
also Influenced his decision. They can
not be taken up until tha ten-hour gen
eral debate la ended. After that the five
minute speech rule will apply, so It waa
regarded as useless to hold night aes-
ions in an effort to get through to
Debate Bellas Today.
Toe general debate will conclude early
tomorrow and the struggle with amend
ments begun. Several members of the
committee, all of whom signed the re
port on the bill, will propose changes In
specific sections. They are not bound
by any committee agreement. Aa mem
ber after member added his approval to
the plan for Increasing the army during
tha day. Interest In the debate flagged.
It waa too one-sided to attract a crowd.
At times there wera not more than a
score of aeata filled on tha floor.
Party lines were utterly forgotten in
tha discission. Representative Hay faced
tha house for an hour, delivering no aet
apeech but ready to answer questions
from any quarter. Representative, Kahn,
...kina- minority member of tha com
mittee, frequently Intervened to aid the
. . ,...niin tha committee a ;
nail man v " - -
views Tha two divided tha debate time
between them since there waa no one
t0 lead an opposition.
(iardaer Attacks Bill.
Tha btll waa at tack od sharply by Rep
resentative Gardner of Massachusetts, re
publican. Ha declared that whlla "it
makes a noise Ilka preparedness, It Is not
a very noisy noise." To eupport ma as
aault upon the figures aa to what tha bill
would accomplish prepared by Repre
tentatlve Hay, Mr. Gardner read a copy
of a letter from Secretary Baker, the
new head of the War department.
The letter disputed tha accuracy of tha
figure by which Mr. Hay sought to
show that 1.134.790 men would be Imme
diately available for a national army If
tha house bill waa enacted. Using the
same method of calculation aa that em
ployed by Mr. Hay. It asld. -we should
have now available without any legtele
tlen l.M.TM men who have had soma mil
In other words. th letter added, "tha
only Immediate effect of tha pasasga of
tha hui.se army bill would be to Increase
the regular army by eOOuO men. and even
that Increase being aoded In four annual
Increments, would require about four
years' time to be recruited and a still
longer time to become effective."
The letter presented reports and figures
te support a conclusion that the actual
number of rren of military age In the
country who have had any military
training at all Is 4Tl,"u;, "The only arte
lustcly trained, r.ien It. the country," It
concluded, "ate the regular army and the
army reserve "
The severity of this official arraign
ment of the house bill astonished many
member. At the Wir depsrtment Sec
retary PekT ssld there was no contro
xerty hctaeen Mr. Hay and himself. The
variance In fisures, he eiplnlned, re
sulted from different opinions held by
r.T'lcers of the war college, which sup
plied the Information contained In the
lettei to Representative Gardner and the j
adjutant genersl's office, the source of
einHy of Cnllfornls In' summer, mm h
lias lifiti written and everywhere tl'e new
compoiilt mi Imve hern received with
expressions of unadulterated Jnv. YThtlo

Ssys Mr. lsmrosch: "1 sni not a slnve
to the Archsic. I think It Is folly for a
modern composer, appealing to modern
tastes, to Ignore th marvelous develop
ment In the art of music, and turning his
hack on t lie modern orchestra, to try
to reproduce the ancient Greek scalia. If
such a practice In the music were to be
Inglcnlly operative In modern presenta
tion of Greek drama, then the star herself
would not appear, but a masked snl
stilted Kcntlcmnu would assume the rolea
which Miss Anglln makes marvelous. No,
I only employed one of the forms of the
Greek scale, Incidentally and meaerty,
as. for Instance when I wanted a priests'
march or to suggest an ancient oere
monlsl, I did not seek to out-Strauas
Strauss In my Instrumentation. There Is
no sugsestion of the horror in the muslo
of Ptrn ues' orchestra when John tha
Baptist's head is cut off.
"I am unalterably opposed to eurh de
basement of the noble art of music. I
l ave sought In the "Medea" episode, whrr
the children are murdered "off stage' to
suggest In my music the pity, the teTor
and the horror of the act, but my mean
I hope, are the legitimate means of music.
