CAUSTIC REPORT HOUSE CommlttiiCriticises Suspension of General Ainsworth, BLAMES TAFT AND STIMSOA Secretary ef War Accused ef Havlnt Committed and Irreparable Wrong" and "Flagrant of Cf flcial President Chargec With Prejudicing Case Arm> Officer. Washington, April President Taft and Secretary or War Stimson are severely arraigned in a report on the Ainsworth case presented to the by military affairs committee. Secretary Stimson is charged witb having committed a "great and irre parable wrong" and a "flagrant mis use of official authority" when lasl February he suspended General Ains worth from his dtitles as adjutant gen eral of thfe army and charged him with insubordination. That the president and Secretary Stimson prejudiced the case, that the accusations against the general were based upon prejudice and that the sec etary of war has an "erroneous idea' of his relation to congress are some of the other 'conclusions reached by a majority of the committee, of which Representative Hay of Virginia chairman. Following General Ainsworth's re ief from tuty and when a court martial seemed probable the president per mitted him. to retire from the army because of t his, long service.

The majority of the 'committee con- clude that General Ainsworth had been guilty of no- -act- which justified the let- :er of suspension from Secretary Stimson and "that the charges had origin in a determination to drive Gen- eral Ainsworth from active service and lad nothing to support them but bare assertion coupled with misrepresenta- lon and suppression of the truth." The "report then goes on to say t is incredible of belief that Secretary Stimson believed General Aineworth uilty of the -charges and adds "Some other reason must actu- ated the secretary of war and that reason is not liaTd to find. Your com- mittee being familiar with all the >hases of the legislative features of :he army appropriation bill can very readily account for this violent as- sault on General Ainsworth." It is pointed out-that General Ains- worth favored the "five-year enlistment plan in bill- which was op- 3osed by Other officers of the general staff and Stimson's let- ter of suspension to the general was sent on the day that this feature of .he hill was being discussed in the house Secretary Stimson's comment to the house when he sent the papers in the case, to the- effect that his action "was not to be construed as a, recognition of the authority of the house or any of its committees to require of the chief executive a statement of reasons for his official is severely crit- icised General Ainsworth's stand upon a certain letter to the secretary of war, upon of -the charges was based, is defended.
