23, 1935 Shortage c,\ Young Man Power Met by Increasing Term oli Service BY MORRIS GILBERT NEA Service Staff Correspondent PARIS.—Tim awesome rumbling f.f military preparations across the border in Germany is doubly dts- ttirblri{r right now, to Prance. For France 1ms come into the "lean years" of population. And Die French government, by increasing obligatory mlllinry service from the previous period of one year to twice that length of time, has only partly solved its problem of military man-power. The reason Is simple. Twenty years ngo, the nation was in the midst of the German war, mid the decline In birth rate, despite all efforts, was necessarily great. That, means that this yew, instead of there being 400.000 young Frenchmen ready to answer the call to the colons, there arc only 150,000. Anil that condition will continue for at least three years more The campaign for the "two- year law" wns led by the deputy Henry Franklin-Bouillon, and by Ills close associate, Leon Arelilm- baud. More Training Now Needed "Even with the length of mili- sory military service for all has sleur Archlmbaud, "France now has only 300,000 men under training compared to Germany's iiOO,- 000. That is partly liccounted for by the difference in populations. "But the service of two years will accomplish two things. While it. will actually keep the ranks of the French citizen army up to a point where we will be comparatively well equipped with shock troops in case of sudden need, it will also make of Hie men serving in these 'lean years' much better soldiers, much better trained in modern warfare. Mechanization of war requires, actually, much longer mid more careful training than soldiers knew when their lives were made up of barrack drill and sptt- and-polish." / Period Reduced 5 Years Ago The period of French compulsory military service for all had •varied greatly in recent times. The deputy recalled that when he underwent his training In the early 1900s, he had to serve for three years. From 1305 to 1913 the service was reduced to two years But in 1913, acting on the bis war scare of those days, France increased the time again to three years—until, of course, all enlistments except for "duration" went by tlie board in the World War. After the war, the period of ser vice was fixed at 18 months, and about five years ago was reduced to the lowest period ever known tince universal service commenced —one year. Beside France's "conscript army" there is, of • course, a permanent corps of general staff, divisional and regimental officers, instructors, and non-coms. This Is the frame-work Into which every year the young French 20-year-olds flow to fill out the ranks of the citizen soldiery. WouliJ Recruit Jobless There is also in France a "regular army" composed of volunteers or "engages." They enlist for three years, nnd at present number iibont 50.000 men. These become hi time, generally, instructors, technical experls, and noncoms, and are distributed among vari- France and In the colonies. In view of the present growing French unemployment, Messrs Archimbaud, Franklin - Bouillon and other advocates of n bigger army, arc hoping to double this number in six months. Many inducements are held out to Frenchmen to join the army, and efforts arc being made to solve much of France's job problem this via Fighting Men March Again in France minions Beds ...
