Bakersfield Morning Echo (Newspaper) - July 27, 1924, Bakersfield, California Two Bakersfield morning Echo sunday july 27, 1924are injured in Accident he asserts president Coolidge in statement refutes arguments / advanced by pacifists would not abolish court because he wants crime ended lion militaristic gesture to Aid purpose of keeping army Down Nytha a nut unit la i i Chi Washington july 20.--the controversy Over the government proposal for Observance of september As Quot defense Day Quot was brought to a Climax by a declaration of president Coolidge that. The proposed Celebration was designed purely and solely to remind american people of their relations to and dependence upon the nation a defense establishment. Quot what jul proposed for september 12 1� merely a compliance with the purposes of the National defense Law of 1920,&Quot the president a Aid in a letter addressed to Frederick j. Libby executive Secretary of the National Council for prevention of War and made Public at that White . Quot it Jyh not a mobilization and tin people who first attached to it the term mobilization Day Quot and then proceeded 1,0 condoms it have been utterly unfair Quot the announcement of the government a plans for the Day lust april Wax followed by protests from Antiwar organizations which declared the move was a military gesture. These designations were denied by the. War a department but the criticism continued with the National Council for prevention of War taking a leading and Strong stand against the proposal. President s views the president s letter dated july 2, follows Quot my dear or. Libby. Quot some Days ago 1 received a letter from yourself As executive Secretary of the National Council for prevention of War informing me that that organization is preparing for a Campaign in behalf of world cooperation for peace to begin Only ��&Lt�-27, on the 10th anniversary of the outbreak of the great War. It is intended to be a great outpouring of the genuine peace sentiment of America. We believe it to be in Harmony with your own purposes As expressed on Many occasions we respectfully ask your a endorsement of the demonstration a a Quot in reply by my direction Teljii Secretary to the president wrote to you saying Quot the president asks me to acknowledge receipt of your letter of june no with the Assurance of his most Hearty sympathy for every practical proposal to minimize the danger of War. As you know lie Lias repeatedly expressed himself in this Tenor and you May he sure of his continued and most genuine friendliness for every worthy and effective Effort along these lilies a believer in peace Quot it Quot As is Well known to All persons who have done me the Honor to familiarize themselves with my Public expression on this subject l lib Tyx unqualified Day sympathetic with five aim and purpose to make War so nearly As might he an impossibility in Liis world. Doubtless this ,1s a counsel of perfection not to life l Vamp aged without much Earnest Effort to that Effort when guided along feasible lines i have repeatedly pledge any assistance. Quot it is now brought to my attention that your organization is to a corned because of the Assumption that the plans for a National defense est on september 12 constitute a militaristic gesture. This Assumption seems to be based chiefly on a confusion of terms in some Runoff Tau and entirely unauthorized was defense test has been Denom mobilization Day the govern tit did not know this. It would be proper to Call it inspection Day hut it i not u mobilization and the gov i i ment is not responsible for any such designation. As a result Sonje Well like using people have misconstrued its character and purposes assuming that a nation wide mobilization of forces and of the civilian and Industrial resources available for National defense is to be carried out on that Day. This of course is far from the truth. Small establishment Quot the Constitution and the Law com template the maintenance of a defense establishment which in time of peace always has been and is now in proportion to our National Power and interests one of the smallest in the world. I have taken �111 oath to support the Constitution and to execute the Laws of the i United states. 1 could do this by maintaining a Large standing army. 1 am opposed to any such plan. 1 am trying to work out a meter of which to can have constantly As we now have an exceedingly Small army and leave our citizens free from that Burden by letting them assume their own responsibility for a defensive establishment sufficient to pro 9an Diego couple Are aided after crash by Auto club Tow service the Tow car service of the Southern California automobile club was again put to Valu Afif use yesterday morning when s. P. Becker Driver picked of am rub a to town or. And mrs. H. R. Price of san Diego who had been severely injured when their car crashed into the railing on a curve on the Grapevine Grade. Or. Price s Chest was crushed by the steering wheel of the car and mrs. Price sustained painful bruises about the head and body. The Auto club Tow car arrived noon after the Accident and or. Becker rendered immediate first Aid and then took the injured persons to Bakersfield where they received medical of bos Are diseased is claim of Clarence Darrow continued from first Page thoughts. He also brought out that la Salle but hot a written nothing on on june 16 Cortland started writing the defendant s alleged Hope for the out a full report of his activities in the Case for the superintendent of the City pm lice department. Quot Friendly judge. In the presence of the court and spectators today the hearing of the vide for Domestic peace and order and National defense. Non militaristic Quot instead of being <1 military gesture this plan is the exact opposite. It in a non a militaristic gesture for the purpose of keeping Down to its lowest possible Point the professional military organizations of the United states. Our country has always relied chiefly for its defense upon the Readi Jess of its patriotic manhood to take ult arms when necessity presented. After the great military Effort of the United states in the world War our army was demobilized More rapidly and completely than that of any other warring nation. Not Only this but the government of the i United states initiated the Washington conference on limitation of armament which brought about highly important reductions in the naval establishment of the great Powers and which sought though without results to effect also an agreement for reduction of armies. A discouraged by the failure to effect a limitation of armies our government s authorized spokesmen live repeatedly since that time declared their wish to bring about a further consideration of this question with a View to accomplishing a general reduction of armed forces by land. Condemnation unfair Quot in the face of this record which is Kii own to All the world it see is unfair that the plans for defense Day should be condemned out of hand simply through the device of misrepresentation. Our government is compelled to confront the realities of the world. One of these is that International agreement for limitation of armies has not been brought into effect. That being the Case our Laws provide i Small permanent army and contemplate its expansion to meet emergencies should they arise. Quot defense Day is intended to bring to the people a reminder of their relations to and dependence upon Liis Skeleton defense establishment in Case our country be attacked. Quot profoundly hoping that the outlawing of War from this world May be accomplished 1 am yet unable to detect any inconsistency in giving my approval to the program of defense Day. I wish crime might be abolished but i would not Ali Bretoi e abolish courts and police Protection. I wish War might be made impossible but 1 would not leave my country unprotected meanwhile. The defense test seems to me a Means to assure the fullest efficiency to the extremely modest defense Force our country the Cross examiner developed that defendants was in marked contrast the detective and Leopold were alone with that of previous Days when the alleged remark about a earlier in the Quot week they rat for no Quot Friendly judge Quot War made although Tice Able intervals apparently paying the other conversations were Gen Only casual attention to. The proceed it rally before witnesses. Lings. They talked Lightheart edly and before going Back to the report or. 1 whispered frequently in Jovial mood Darrow asked if it contained any ref-1 to their attorneys and guards a rence to the remark. I Slick remarks Quot i Ain not sure Quot said Cortland. Several Quarter Page newspaper Pho Quot reared and see Quot said the attorney. I tog Rapha depicting the boys with full the witness found none.

Darrow went Back to the official Jaunty Demeanour of other Days report. Lie asked about the time con and yet outside the courtroom the sued in completing it. Denial unhesitating Quot just give your Best judgment. 1 am not trying to get Yon to say something you might not want to Quot he assured the witness. They agreed on Quot two or three week Quot As the interval. Tho re were a few More perfunctory it the scions. Then or. Darrow suddenly raised his voice and shot his accusation of falsehood. Cortland s denial came without hesitation. Or. Crowe on direct examination brought out that had volunteered the information thursday evening. Attorney Darrow gained the last word by having Cortland state again that he had written out in full a conversation with Leopold at the hotel regulation dress for county cops according to orders issued recently by will ii. Marsh chief of the state traffic a vision All Quot Sam Browne Quot belts or Caps or any article of uniform dress corresponding to that worn in restraint seemed tossed to the winds and the easy nonchalance of the Young students was again in evidence. Quot with our looks and Darrow s brains. I think Well get along pretty Well Quot was Leopold s comment after he and his fellow prisoner were taken Back to the jail. But he and Loeb appeared confident at the result of the questioning of Cortland by their chief counsel although they expressed weariness at being constantly interviewed. Nathan Leopold s spectacles set in an imitation Tortoise Shell Frame the slender clue on which the state s attorney began the examination of the two youths were again before the court today. They were identified positively by Jacob Weinstein head of the optical House which produced them As those constructed according to the specifications on a Job ticket bearing Leopold name.
