The- War Department lels it he known thai its war-time mobili- sation plans provide tor placing 1.230.000 well-equipped troops "in Ihe field" within four months, llils is old stuff, actually, and presumably the army boys are txating the drum in thai way be- jaiKf they, don't want Die navy lo gel all the money that is to be voted for what is known as national O.efease. Want Draft Law Non- After that first "quickie" of !,230.000. the nrmv plans on raising two or throe million more fighting men. But yon still can't get anyone to admit—at least not publicly—that there's any chance of American invasion of a foreign nation or any chance of a foreign nation Invading the 'United States. The War Department officially bases its war plans on two aller- npWves—universal conscription or [f campaign for volunteers which -oufd be led by the American - Egion posts. The latter alternative is jiisl so much eyewash because what the General Staff really figures on is another draft law. In fuel, the generals aren't even willing to wait for Congress lo pass a conscription act until war is declared or threat of \\af- tililios appears. They want a draft law passed right now so thai Congress won't even have a chance to use its discretion later. No Explanation Congress is asked to authorize military conscription of all men between the ages of 2t and 31 in a bill approved by Chairman Andrew ,7. May and a majority of the House Military Affairs Com- jnlltee. This measure is, a revision of Ihe old Sheppard-Hill bill and Its alleged purpose is to take the profits out of and to equalize the bjjrdens of :war. The^blll makes no pretense of explaining why these millions of men' would be needed if there is 0}^ thought of another large 'American expeditionary force. But J)u mallei- how small and unim- poiiant a war in which this country was involved might be. a President would be given power to order them under arms. Numerous studies of neutrality nnd related problems in the last few years almost invariably have reached the conclusion that a President could so handle this country's foreign relations that war- would become inevitable. This "war profits" hill has profited .from the original impetus of the drive to get a real bill aimed at taking the profits out of war which began after the sensational exposures of the Senate Munitions Committee. IVfanv people who believed in neutrality and peace and heartily opposed American entry into any foreign war thought Hint a Ww which insured that, there couldn't ba any" war profiteers in the next war would do a lot to fccourage war. These same pco- are now battling desperately „. nst the May hill, holding H a travesty on their original proposal for elimination of war profits through a schedule of war-time taxation. Legion lobby The chief lobby behind the May •bill is that or the American Legion, none of whose members young enough lo be affected by the conscription feature. But the measure also has been strength tned by Ihe, persistent "n-ar talk •which has been encouraged by the Roosevelt administration. The bill would leave Congress little to do in the event of war. .since the President would be given power to set prices, rales, commissions and compensations; to reorganize the government and .•shift appropriated federal funds nt his discretion, to put industry under a licensing system, to freeze wages and to determine the order /' priority in delivery of all goods ff>"d services. Like the Shenpard- Hill bill, the May bill provides for )io taxation of war profits, nllholigh it declares a policy of taking by faxattpn "all profits above a normal return to be fixed uy Congress." Opponents, declnrlngr the powers conferred would be unprecedented, insist the bill is a wide-open invitation for any President or governing clique with dictatolal ambitions to maneuver the country into a state of war.
