DENVER (UP)—The West asks thai national defense experts take a lesson from soldiers and scouts who stood at Ihe ramparts ,-f pioneer forts in mnlclii" their plans for a 20th century wall of armed mvqht around the United States. Governors, officials, agricultural and water authorities from n states agreed that a string army and navy which would build a "life line" around America would provide its best defense and sanctioned such plans at the eighth annual convention of the National Rccl-imation Association. "Actually it will be like living inside o giant f:rt. as long as there is war on the face of the earth," Clifford L. Stone, chairman of the Colorado Interstate Streams Commission, said. "And it wns a series of forts pushed farther and far- Ihcr ints the wilderness that finally won the North American continent,. 1'oitit fo History "It would be well if present strategists learned from history what our forefathers learned by hard and bitter experience," he added.

The reclamation convciitirn sanctioned this viewpoint with the adoption of a series of resolutions asking for expanded activity in reclamation, conservation and development of water power and irrigation facilities.

"A' nation-may have impregnable buttresses and walls constructed about it—such as the Mnginot and Siegfried lines now being patrolled on Europe's Western Fr:nt. Many forts existed when our soldiers and settlers were- fighting the British and Indians decades a»o in the winning of this nation," Stone con- tiued. "But without, internal orgnni- zaticn and supplies, even the most powerful fort must- fall."

"Wilderness that c'uld be made into ranches, farmlands and gardens await only the construction ' of dams and canals to carry water |i to it," he said. "Electric power could • be unlimited with proper and' economic construction of turbines to harness the mountain streams that run through our mountains and hills." "If we are to be self-sufficient, both economically and socially, then these things must be done. The basis of mcdem national defense lies in the development of the west."

S. military leaders believe it is better to waste a lot of lime picking a rare ten-strike from a barrage of screw-balls, than to have one such experience as befell the British War Office after the World War. The Britons were clearing files from ten years before the war. They found a complete set of drawings and plans embodying the basic principle and many features of the modern tank that finally, following three years of bloody losses, broke the German line in 1Q17 and helped win the war. But upon these plans, submitted in 1905 by ti patriotic British inventor, was scrawled in large, official hand the words: "The man's mad!"
