Communicate With Him.
investigation Is Promised
By Ttao Associated Vrtt.
Washington D. C. Nov. 16. A
blanket invitation to every citizen
laving knowledge of "any irregu
larity or misconduct on the part ot
any agent, employe or officer of the
War depatment" to submit such evi
dence for investigation, was issued
today by Secretary Baker in reply
to recent criticism of the surplus
property division, appearing in ' a
New York newspaper. The secre
tary s statement pledged thorough in
quiry into every accusation brought
to the attention of the department.
Declaring that the articles re
ferred to charge, first, that the War
department bought too many sup
plies and second, that irregularities,
favoritism and profiteering, have
characterized the disposal of surplus
stocks, the statement emphatically
denied both allegations. Supplies
were bought, it said, on the basis'
of an expected longer duration of
the war. .
"Had the campaign of 1919 been
necessary," it said, "the American
army would have been greater in
numbers than the combined French
and British armies in France."
. , Industry Protected,
The rapid demobilization of the
army, the statement continued, left
a vast accumulation of material
which, if dumped on the market,
would have resulted in widespread
unemployment, with demobilized
soldiers and war workers jobless
and the "economic condition of the
country prostrated." , , .
'YThe policies which were pursued,
encouraged the resumption of in
dustry and America is the only
country actively engaged in the war
which has. up to this time, attained
full employment conditions," it
added. V , '
