Congress. Completes Part in Enact
ment of First Administration
Defense Measures.
Washington, May 20. Congress
today completed its part in the en
actment of the first of the adminis
tration preparedness measures, the
army reorganization bill, and sent the
measure up to President Wilson for
his signature.
The house approved with only
twenty-five dissenting votes the con
ference report on the army measure,
which already had been accepted by
the senate. It provides for a regular
army with a peace strength of more
than 200,000 men, backed by a fed
eralized national guard of more than
400,000, and carries many reorgani
zation features worked out by War
department officials to make the na
tion's fighting arm more efficient.
Number of Men Provided.
Estimates vary as to the actual
number of men the army measure
will provide, the maximum to he en
listed under it depending on the in
terpretation placed on some sections
by War department officials charged
with its enforcement. As construed
by Chairman Chamberlain of the sen
ate military committee it provides for
a regular establishment of 211,000 at
peace strength and 236,000 at war
strength, with a national guard
strength of 457,000, The peace
strength of the regulars under an in
terpretation given to the house today
by Chairman Hay of the house mili
tary committee would be 260,000.
Besides the personnel increases,
the measure provides for a govern
ment nitrate manufacturing plant to
cost not more than $20,000,000; for
establishment of a system oh military
training camps for civilians, paid -for
out of the federal treasury; for a
board (o investigate the advisability
of establishing a government muni
tions plant, and for vocational edu
cation in the army. Federalization
of lite National Guard would be ac
complished through federal pay and
through a requirement making the
guardsmen subject to the orders of
the president.
Those Voting Against.
Republicans who voted against the
report were: Britten, Wheeler, Mann,
Gardner, Gillrtt, Rodgers, Tinkham,
Walsh, Guerncsy, Hadlcy, Hum
phrey, Johnson, (Washington); Hu
sted, Piatt, Sanford, Moore, Morgan,
Nelson. Five democrats: Buchanan,
(Illinois); Tavenner, Johnson, (Ken
tucky). Thomas and Randall voted
against it, as did London, socialist,
and Schall, progressive. .
.Ure Must Support
Henry Ford, Rules
A verbal contest between Bailiff
Joe Marrow and Treasurer Bill Ure,
commissioned as one of the dele
gates from this district to the Chi
cago convention, has brought out an
other ruling from Attorney General
Reed on the primary law. Marrow,
who had secured the signatures and
filed the petitions for Henry Ford
for president, took issue with Ure's
assertion that he would vote for
Cummins to carry out the popular
"Ford got the most votes in this
district," said Marrow,1 "and if you
obey instruction, you will vote for
him. i
"But Cummins got the biggest vote
in the state, and that ought to gov
ern," said Ure. "I'll have to ask the
attorney general as to which instruc
tions are binding. j
To make sure that the matter was j
not overlooked, Marrow immediately
put it up to the attorney general
and here is the reply received
"Lincoln, May 19. My dear Mr,
Marrow: Answering your of the
loth, instant swill cay the fact that
the district delegates in your dis
trict gave over 2,000 majority votes !
for Henry Ford, would indicate that j
your district was in favor of Henry I
Ford, and it carries the moral obli-1
gation for the drlrgafes to support I
him. That, to my mind, is the extent I
of the force and effect of the law, j
