War and Navy department chiefs and em ployes, busy with plans for any mili tary activity the nation may require, had interest in their task heightened today by ' a personal visit from President Wilson. Walking over from the White House, the president appeared unannounced at the office of Secretary Daniels and after the con ference dropped in on Secretary Baker. With Secretary Daniels he talked over the amendments to the naval ap propriation bill, which the house is expected to pass tomorrow, empow ering the president to take over ship building plants, munition works and other private agencies vital to the construction or operation of the navy in war times. Visit la "Routine." The president described his visit to Secretary Baker as "routine." He is understood to have been told just what the army is doing in the way of preparation. There was no change in the situa tion at the War department so far as surface indications went. Demobili zation of National Guard regiments home from border service has not been interrupted nor have orders gone out to speed up the return of other guard units. There are indica tions, however, that the question of just what steps would f ollow a declar tion or war or a hostile act are be ing carefully weighed. The most probable course of the administration, in the view of many officials, will be to summon a volun teer force of half a million men and allow the decision as to passing to a univarsal service system to await the response to that call. Response Is Generous. The War department has at hand a study of the steps necessary to or ganize such a volunteer army, made at the time the situation on the Mexi can border was acute. No officer be lieves voluntary service will Supply a force of the size the army general staff has repeatedly declared ade quate for defense of the country. Various bureaus of both the War and Navy departments are laying plana for swift action should a war emergency come. Further messages from individuals and corporations of fering their services continued to flow into the departments. Secretary Baker said a generous response to the national need was coming from the "business and personnel of the country." The Navy department issued a list of prompt offers reaching Secretary Daniels, on which appeared the name of the Bethlehem Steel company, Fore River Ship Building company, Electric Cable company, New York;, Slocum Avicum and Slocum Labora .
