Washington, Feb. 21.—Advocates ol universal military training won n victory in the house committee on military affairs. The committee, by a vote of 11 to 9, directed n subcommittee to incorporate in. the pending army reorganization bill a provision establishing a policy for the compulsory training of boys of nineteen, with the proviso flii[t~the training shall not begin until July 1, 1922. This means that ho appropriation would be necessary either this year or in 1921. The committee debated the -proposition for three hours. By postponing the date when the system of training shall become effective, sponsors for the system believe they will overcome objections of those who believe that the expense makes any action Inadvisable "at'this time. Those who voted favorably on the •bill are: Knhri of California, Green of Vermont, Sanford of New York, Mo- rln of Pennsylvania, James of Michigan, Miller of Washington and Fuller of Massachusetts, Republican^; Caldwell of New York, Olney of Massachusetts and Fisher of Tennessee, Democrats.
