HISo IOWA CITY. IOWA. PRESS-CITIZEN La8fof Six Artide8 o x r fense Must Keep Potential Their Own Sides of Ocean creasingly the Instrument of national policy and national aggrandizement. Second, we need the right kind of national defense to make sure that if war does come to us, we shall be able to bring it swiftly to a -victorious conclusion without subjecting our women and children to ruthless slaughter from the air. Mrs. Fleming b Host to Dinner- Club on Tuesday Our army must be sufficient to hold our vital outlying positions, ach as Panama and Hawaii. Above, army machine gunners face i "gas" attack during war games. singularly favored by geogra- y. We have no predatory neigh- rs with great armies ready to irch across our frontiers. And, yet, we are out of reach of ai tacks coming from the bases o y power of dangerous propor ns. Hie first condition Is that of an md, defensible primarily by sea was such a geographical acci it i which enabled the people o: sat Britain to create their huge rld-girdling empire while pro- ting themselves, and the routes maritime communications along ich flowed the trade which was life-blood of that empire, by ins of a superior navy.

It must not be considered that the sea itself, forming as it does a difficult barrier against airplanes, is an all-sufficient protection. For the sea is also a highway, and is still the easiest and cheapest means of transporting goods--or armies. That is why it is necessary to dominate the seas which divide us Trom the other great powers of 3ie world by means of a powerful navy, which, controlling the movement by sea of armed forces as veil as commerce, shall enable us :o command every means of access o the American continents from the sources from which danger may come. To sum up: We need an adequate national defense first of all o keep us out of war in a world in which force la becoming in Mrs. L.
