Senator Lodge deliver a denunciation
of the delays which have prevented

lies Allies in the critical hour.
Compulsory military training was
advocated by Senator Lodge, who
urged adoption of the amendment to
the draft law, providing for the
training of boys between the ages of
18 and 21 years.
Senator Lodge characterized the
situation confronting this country as
"terrible," and urged that the Amer American
ican American people be told the truth.
"The fate of thi3 war i3 trembling
in the balance," he declared.
"In this dark hour it is a crime to
keep from our people the facts that
Germany herself knows." x
It has been known for weeks, he
said, that we have no fighting planes
"Our front is undefended in tht
air," he continued. "We have no
guns in France, except a few old
coast guns.. That is the hard fact.
"We have turned out only two

Senator Hitchcock said he did not

- Gir-- ing Home Addresses of Our
Dead and Wounded
Washington, March 27. An official
statement of the war department's
reasons for announcing only the
names of the American troops killed
or wounded in France was submitted
to the Senate yesterday by Major
General March, acting chief of staff,
with a stateemnt that the department
considers it is of best advantage from
all points of view.
General March said the old system
of giving addresses and details gave
information to the enemy and
brought swarms of claim agents to
harrass the relatives of the men.
The policy of the war department,
General March told the Senate, is "to
put in the hands of the nearest rela relative

soldier ,4n his emergency address,

A dispatch to the Star late Tues Tuesday
day Tuesday afternoon said, "British, French
and American troops are fighting
shoulder to shoulder." It is understood
that most of the American troops in
France are in the trenches on the
Lorraine sector, and it isn't likely
they would be withdrawn, as that
part of the line is also liable to a
drive. But there are a considerable
number of our men in training camps
in various parts of France and it is
likely they are being rushed to the
help of the hard-pressed British.
These troops needed training only for
trench fighting. If the battle is get getting

Congressman Joe Sears has intro

that a certain proportion of high
school scholars be given military
training. Mr. Sears is an ex-school
teacher and like all others of his tribe
hinks the entire world is made up of
teachers and the upper grades of their
scholars. His bill, if it becomes a law,
would furnish this country with
about enough men to fight one ordi
nary-sized battle. What this, country
must have to make it reasonably safe
is universal military training, and a
man who can't perceive that very ob
vious fact should either get a new
vision or get out of public life.
