Senator Culberson which waa laid be i
lore the senate committee. Barley atated

administration bill and that the people of
Texas were unwilling- to surrender their
' boys at n moat impressionable age to a
- military autocracy to be influenced in fa-
vor of military power. - - . -;
v Speaking for the National Guard asso-
ciation. Colonel Birkhead who served
; with' the artillery of the 36th division; in

: bodying a peace time draft to fill the
y peace time regular army and centers the
man-power under a military dictatorship
"In place of this system' said Colonel
Birkhead "we will propose a local citisen
soldiery controlled within and by itself
similar to the marine corps idea. This
v will be accomplished without disturbing
the regular army."'
