OOO MEN WOULD BE ENOUGH —LARGER ARMY TOO EXPENSIVE By the Associated Press WASHINGTON, Oct. 31.—Disagreeing with war department recommendations for a permanent army of 500,000 men, General John J. Pershing today told a joint meeting of the senate and house military committees that he thought the number could be placed “at an out side figure of £75,000 to 300,000 and possibly less.” The General said the regular army should be sufficient to protect the nation against sudden attack and to meet America’s obligations both on this continent and elsewhere and that this army should be backed up by “a trained citizen reserve,” The cost of maintaining a large army, General Pershing said, was an element which in his opinion would make it impracticable to set the figure any higher than 300,000. By the Associated Press. INDIANAPOLIS, Oct. 31., 3 p. rn.—The temporary injunction obtained here today by the government cannot avert the strike of bituminous coal miners set for midnight tonight, according to John L. Lewis, acting president of the United Mine Workers of America. Mr. Lewis’s announcement came shortly before he was served with a writ stopping strike activities at union headquarters here. “I regard the issuance of this injunction” $lr. Lewis said, ‘‘as the most sweeping abrogation of the rights of citizens guaranteed under the constitution that has ever been issued by any federal court. This instrument will not avert the strike of bituminous mine workers and will not settle the strike after it occurs.” A. F. of L.
