(From a Staff Correspondent.)

egram.) Harry Laird, 24 years old,
arrested last night for investigation,
today admitted he was a paroled pris
oner from the Nebraska penitentiary

Iowa Farmer Shot in Arm .
By Would-Be Assassins
Lake Park, la., Dec. 18. A would
be assassin attempted to kill G.
Dierks, a well-to-do farmer, at the
Dierks' home, two miles east of Like
Park, at midnight last night. The
bullet fired by the would-be assassin
struck Dierks in the arm When the
shot was fired the horse which
Dierks was driving ran away, carry
ing him to the home of a neighbor.
The person who fired the shot then
set fire to the Dierks' home. Direks
had received threatening letters de
manding $500, but had ignored them.

fense would fall equally upon all citi
zens. It would make it impossible for
any man or group of men to trade
upon the nation's necessities in time
of war. The system would be relia
ble because it would produce each
year the number of men necessary to
be trained. It would be economical
because it would be based upon rec
ognition by the people of the duty
of the individual to render personal
service and in carrying it into effect
the government would not have to
compete in the labor market. It would
be efficient because it would enable
us to prepare adequately for war be
fore war comes."
At the outset General Scott pointed
out that the Mexican crisis had failed
to recruit many National Guard or
ganization even to their minimum
peace strength.
Volunteer System Failure.
"The failure should make the whole
people realize that the volunteer sys
tem does not and probably will not
give us either the men we need in
peace or for service in war," said he.
Reviewing the intensive training
which European and other nations
require, he declared if American
troops ever were to compete with
highly trained and splendidly dis
ciplined forces they would require
training and discipline at least equal
to that of their opponents.

the general said, had demonstrated
that a higher standard of training and
discipline were required than was
popularly considered necessary be
fore and that most of the European
nations for that reason found they
could not develop them in less than
two years with the colors.
"It should be obvious." said he,
"that 192 hours' training prescribed
for the National Guard is utterly in
adequate to prepare this force for
war service."
Three Million Men Needed.
For war with a first-class power
the general staff had previously esti
mated that 500,000 fully, equipped
troops should be ready at the out
break and that 500.001) more should
be available in ninety days. In view
of the lessons of the war, the general
was now of the opinion that these
numbers should be tripled and that
1,500,000 fully equipped and ready
troops should be available, with an
other 1,500,000 to follow in ninety
"This is due," he said, "to the fact
that one of the powers involved in
the war and whose territory extends
the whole length ot our northern
frontier has increased its army from
a relatively small force to a strength
approximating that of the other great
European powers Due to the fact
that our northern neighbor is largely
an island empire, a great portion of
any trained force it may possess can
be spared for use in a distant theater
of operations because, being an
island empire, the control of the sea
gives it practical immunity from in
vasion where troops would have to
be transported across the sea.
United States Practically Defenseless.
"It should be pointed out, also,
that our northern neighbor is in alli
ance with a powerful oriental nation
another island empire and for the
same reason when acting in alliance
with a power which has control of
the sea has ability to send its army
of 2,225,000 men to any part of the
world without danger of invasion.
"1 think a mere statement of these
facts makes it clear that at present
we are practically defenseless before
the veteran armies of our northern
neighbors and could easily be crushed
by the existing coalition of the island
"I have said enough by way of il
lustration only to make it clear that
if we are menaced by one of these
powers alone, having lost control of
the sea, we should need more troops
for defensive purposes than have en
tered into the popular conception of
our military problems heretofore.
Big Invasion Possible.
"A factor which has played a part
in protecting us from recent aggres
sions by any of the great nations of
Europe, in spite of our comparatively
defenseless condition, was the so
called balance of power. When the
European war is over there will still
be two groups of powers which will
permit the superior group to hold the
inferior group in balance with only a
portion of its force and will enable it
to hold the remainder ready for action
outside of Europe. It is manifest that
if a coalition of the great powers, as
they existed on August I. 1914, were
to make war on us we could have been
invaded by very large forces within

Drawn for
about one month from the declara
tion of war.
"While a war waged against us by
an alliance may in the future be a pos
sibility it is not a probability. It is
believed if we provide an adequate1
army to defend the country against
any single nation the probability of
a war between the United Slates and
a coalition of powers would grow
even more remote."
After having discussed reasons why
die general staff believes twelve
i months' intensive training is the min
i imum to prepare troops for war,
I General Scott stated at length why
the staff recommended that no further
reliance be placed on the volunteer
svstem and urged universal liability
i to military training and service. Of
all tho nations of the world, lie said,
the United States and China alone
relied on volunteers to defend their
national existence. He recounted the
failures of the volunteer system in
the revolutionary war, the war of 1812
and how it failed both the confeder
acy and the union in the civil war.
"The system is ineffective," he said,
"because under it we must wait for
war to come .before preparing our de
fense. We must wait for an emer-
! gency before beginning to raise, train
and equip the vast armies wnicn war
with any first class power or coalition
would render necessary. A nation
that is so short-sighted with respect
to its man power cannot be expected
to look far into the future with re
spect to munitions and supplies.
"If universal liability to military
training and service are ordained it
would mean only that the people as
a whole have through their represen
tatives recognized the duty of the
individual to prepare himself to de
fend it in case of need."
