A movement to brini; to Atlanti headquarters of an addit'onal repri-lnotit of njittonal uard troops was launcl ei at a meeting of lending busi-ni men on Friday last at the chamber cf commerce. It was pointed put that Atlanta today is far behind the position she held in national guard records before the world war, and after discussion of the various factors that brouutit tins condition about, n x'oial committee was named to seek cooperation of various civic organizations. buMtiess and manufacturing roiifcrns and commercial leaders of the city. It wai explained at the meetiing that, v hen the world war called for all American manpower, the national Kuard was absorbed into the federal tinny organization. After the war, when the fiuhting men had leen dis-charged from ser ice, tbe fntire military cystetn of the Country was reorganized on a new basis, f'mler this plan, this country Is divided into divisional nnits and the three chief military branches recular nrmv. n.i- j tionnl guard and civilian reserve act j in unity. l ixler this plan. Atlanta did not j receive a fu!l regiment c f infantry, j the city beine included in a division-i al n:it which also includes South I Carolina, Georgia, lloriihi and Ten-i nessee. Forces Kedticed. Under these, Atlanta lias lut one infantry battalion (about one-fourth as much infantry as'it for merly had) and two unita of cavalry (about one-third as much as lormer-ly). There is no artillery or auxiliary units, such as existed lefore the war. According to the annual report f.'r 1023 of the chief of the militia bureau for the United States, submitted to the war department, there is at present one infantry regiment iot assigned to any state or city. Under the present military law, provision ii made for 12 infantry regiments, in addition to the troops organized under the divisional plan. One of these 12 regiments in n western state has been disbanded and it has not yet been reallocated to any city. It is the plan of Atlantans who have taken a leading iinterest in thi" situation to request the war department to assign this regiment to Atlanta. They are. at present nt work securing co-operation of Atlanta business men and already have received copies of resolutions fully indorsing their plans from such organizations 15V RALPH T. JONES. One of the most important musical events of the current jeasoo in Atlanta is the coming, on February IS, of Marcel Dupre, famous young organist of Notre Dame cathedral at i 1'aris. ! Monsieur Dupre will tive his reci tal here on the magnificent Pilcher organ at the First Presbyterian church, that edifice having been tendered for hia use, with "ts oomforta.-ble, spacious auditorium, when it was found that long-delayed repairs to the Auditorium organ will prevent his appearing there. This young organist, classed in the musical world as the outstanding master of his instrument, is brought to Atlanta through the interest of the board of directors of the Atlanta Music Festival association. He will be presented by the board, and individual members of that body are offering this recital as a compliment to the music-loving public of Atlanta. While the best-known work performed ty this board is bringing to the city every year the Metropolitan Opera company for a week of grand opera at the Auditorium, there are,' as the coming of Monsieur Dupre testifies, many other debts which Atlanta owes to them. Members of the board feel that the way in which Atlanta supports the grand opera movement, both in past years and as she has already begun this year through the splendid list of guarantors 1- CT- ..... rj'r, I V o 7 ' Jr'rFr ' ii V C1 . o The Best January Investment Offering A baby grand piano at $595 cf as much higher as you care to go. perhaps the matchless Mason Harnlin, musically, the most beautiful piano the world has ever known Or a player piano at m or if your taste and purse prefer, a beautiful Solo Carola Inner-Player or a reproducing player, such as the marvelous Euphona Reproducing Inncx'Player.

Tlifs appreciation, they feel, will iain be evidenced by the crowd which they confidently- expect will attend the Dupre recital. Dupre startled the musical woild in 1!20 by his almost incredible feat, the first in history, of playing perfectly from memory the entire organ works of Haeh in a series of ten extraordinary recitals at the Paris Conservatory. This achievement won f.r the young organist the title of "the finest organist of his time." Dupre made his American debut in 1021, at the Wannamaker auditorium at New York. On that occasion he amazed and dumfounded musicians, critics and public alike by improvising an entire symphony in four movements, lasting thirty minutes, upon themes submitter! to him by six prominent organists only five minutes before. He has promised the local board that he will include one of these famous improvisions of his at hia concert here on February 18. He gave OG recitals during his first trans-continental American tour, and musical critics in every city where he played united in acclaiming him a musical genius" unique and unap-proached in his own field of art. This was the largest tour ever booked for an organist. He is now in the midst of his second American tour and is coming to the First Presbyterian church, Atlanta, for one recital, at 8:30 o'clock Monday, February 13, O A B L, ' Piano Company Ham of th Celebrated Mason & Hamlin 82-84 North Broad Street as the chamber of commerce, Kiwanis, Itotary, Lions', Civitan clubs and others. Worthy of Support. In discussing the subject Saturday, a prominent Atlanta business man said that it was a matter which should, on the face of it, be assured of heartiest approval from every loyal Atlantan. "To put it on a strictly financial standpoint alor.e," he said, "establishment ct this regiment here will mean the bringing of approximately 225.000 annually to' Georgia, a large proportion of which will, of course, stay right here in Atlanta. The pay of an infantry regiment in the modern national guard of the United States is about $75,000 per year for drill pay, etc. Then there is about $150,000 per ear for expenses of the linnual encampment, such as supplies, equipment, transportation, etc." It will rcouue an enlisted strength of about 1,200 men to form this new regiment, and with the present nucleus of about 400 in the nnits already here, it is be'ieved that there would be no difficulty in filling out the required strength, j trticulnrly after local business men have been shown advantages to accrue to the citv. The uses of a strong na tionnl guard force are well known and self-evident. Many tiimes they have proven their value to Atlanta, especially in the oid days when there was a larger force here. To cite only one striking example, it will be recalled what yoeman service they per-firmed in 197, when the great fire of tbat year swept its rath of destruction through the Boulevard district. Emergency IJiot Iftity. While it is hoped that Atlanta will never reed to tall for national guards-:nfii to quell riots, it is pointed out that this possibility, no matter how slight, is nevertheless always present and it is too late to recruit a regiment after the rioting has broken our. A properly organized military unit, part of such an infantry regiment, would also be of inestimable service under any kind of epidemic. The benefit to the individual minn'smnn by the training he receives in discipline, in organization and in physical well-being cannot be over estimated, it is pointed out. The tim required from his rezulnr work is so disht r.s not to be worth considerinz. For instance, during the past year, the local guard has onlv been called out for a part of one day, with the exception of public holidays. Members reported at the armory at 10 o'clock on the morninTthe day that Governor Trinkle. of Virginia, came here to take part in ceremonies incident to the beginning of sculptural work nt Stone Mountain, and were back at their pieces of employment by 2 o'clock in the afternoon. " It is suggested that every employ- r of the city select one man out of. bis forces for every T0 be eranlors. Thece men are to He selected not only for their physical fitness, but for their Inch character and desirable qualities eenerally. They are to be shown that they are selected to represent their firm in the guard, just as fellow workers ronresent it in the Botsry eltib, the Kiwanis club or the chamber of commerce. Would Add 500. It is estimated that, in sur-b a basis, there would be at least f00 additional guardsmen for th new regiment, and with the 4o0 already here, only 3G0 would be needed to mike np the regimental strength of 1200. "Atlanta is military hsdquarterft for this army corps in so far as the regular army is concerned." said 1 prominent business mnn, "and sh certainly njrht to stand at the top of the southeast in so far as the national gnard is concerned. Slembers of the commit te. appointed at the meeting are hard at worV securing co-oreration of local business men in their efforts to make Atlanta regimental headquarters for this. POSITION JUSTIFIED, DECLARES mm Claiming that recent changes in methods of operation made by . the state highway department constitute ' a refutation of the . majority report of the legislative investigating committee of last summer and an endorsement of the minority report signed by himself alone, E. II. Mc-Michacl, representative in the assembly from Marion county, Saturday gave out a statement in which he criticises the department for publishing the text of the majority report m its official magazine, "Georgia Highways." Representative McMichael suggests that a new committee of investigation be formed by having the governor name two superior court judges "or good plain citizens," and asks that he be allowed to name two. These four would select a fifth, making a citizens committee of five. Then, he says, he will submit "the records, facts and figures" and "if they do not find that my minority report is sustained by -the evidence submitted, I will resign my seat in the house of representatives." Mr. McMichael claims that the majority report in effect approved in toto everything the department was doing, branded him as "a liar," and that the present reorganization program in the department "is in itself a repudiation of these glowing compliments written by that majority, and a vindication at least a partial indorsement of my suggestions. "This is not intended now to criticise or fight the highway department in its efforts at reorganization," he continues, "but I do resent the fact that it broadcasted throughout the state in 'Georgia Highways' the majority report which branded me a liar at the expense of the taxpayers, without publishing my minority report especially since the members themselves, are now repudiating their undeserved compliments by treading along lines that I recommended. "The board has a new member, W. T Anderson, of Macon, who succeeds Mr. Neely, deceased. Mr. Anderson thinks for himself ; and the chief engineer will have to show him why before he accepts any and all recommendations. Let us hope that economic plans will result from this new infusion of administrative power."
