General's Attitude Toward
Military Training In Amer
ica Makes .Impression, On
Seattle, Vash, Feb. 16. (Spe
cial:) The question of military
preparedness was discussed at con
siderable length by General Persh
ing on his recent visit to the Facifio
coast and what he said on the sub
ject in this and other cities marts
a profound impression on the minds
of those who heard him.
Under the head, "Safety Without
Militarism," the Seattle Daily Times
has this to say editorially about
General Pershing's views on the sub
ject of military training:
"General Pershing's views on the
subject of military training are one
with the views of all other friends
of adequate preparedness.
"The first soldier of the land ini
, pressed upon his ySeattle audiences
the fact that he is as vigorous a
. toe as any other militarist. v
Heed Defense Necessity.
"But. he solemnly counseled ail
the audiences he-addressed in this
city to take heed to the necessity
for adequate national defense
through the training of America's
young manhood in the. practice of
"Preparedness was the basic thenis
of all of Pershing's speeches in this
, "He was iu tensely in earnest in
his discussion of the matter. He il
lustrated his belief in the necessity
for actioii by crisp observations con-
cerning the tinprepareduess of the
countrv at the time of the break
. with Germany, frequently alluding
, to the fact that another crisis plight
not see America's shores safe-
guarded against a foreign foe by al
lies previously in the field and man
fully resisting while the United
States prepared. t
"Time after time, the general fer
vently expressed his hope that the
republic would not again be visited
by war, but every such hope was
followed by the solemn declaration
that no man. today can say wh,n war
will come or how close it may be.
y Pride in the Army.
- "The pride he expressed in the
army he had the honor tocommand
.overseas was mingled with a deter
mination that, if he could prevent,
another army of equally splendid
' "young Americans should not be call
ed upon to face, equally unprepared,
responsibilities of so grave a nature.
"Defense without militarism!
' Such is Pershing's program! Such
the program of every patriotic
American 1 ""
"That end never can be achieved
through a large regular army.
"It can be effected in but one
way the way indicated by Persh
ing and by others as devoted ass he
' td the republic's every interest by
universal military training!" .
Hughes Writes Omahahan

presidential nominee in 1916, is "ut
terly unwilling t undertake a second

Omaha Man Concert Master
Of Minneapolis Orchestra
Guy Woodard, who is the con
cert master ovf the Minneapolis
Symphoney orchestra,' is a former
resident of Omaha. He began his
musical studies here, studying for
manyt years with the late Dr.
Charles Baetens, and with his uncle,
Mr. Herbert Butler, who is now a
prominent violinist of Chicjgo. Mr.
Woodard ' displayed such unusual
talent that he rapidly won recogni
tion in his chosen field, and before
his engagement with the Minneap
olis Symphony orchestra he., held
many similar positions in other or
chestras with great success.
Many people wonder what a con
cert master of an orchestra is. The
concert master is .next in importance
to the conductor. He is in fact, a
sort of lieutenant. Just as the string
band is the most important section
of the orchestra, thq concert mas
ter is the most important player
among the strings. ' He is the first,

must take the initiative in air the
entrances, and much of the shad
ing, the time, and expression of the
music is gauged by him. To him
falls the solo work in the first vio
lin section. , "
' He must be constantly alert, and
concentrated upon the music, as he
is the most valuable support of the
conductor. .A great deal of the re
sponsibility for th success of the
interpretations rests upon him. This
position requires a fine musician,
absolutely dependable and keenly
artistic, quick to understand and to
