It also would authorize sentences of less than death, for muvclev or rape, ami penalties less severe than.' dismissal for an officer convicted of being drunk In time of war. It also would set up n separate Judge advocate general's corps. The legislation grew out of widely-publicized invesllRntlons of the Army's cnstc system and military Justice. Meantime, strong Ill-partisan opposition shaped up to n Senate plan to put the draft on a standby basis and let the President rather than Congress decide when Inductions should start. Sen. Homer E.
