The war departm"M j today" added nothing to its terse Imlic- i tin of last night, but president Wilson's' statement explaining his reasons for not accepting at this time c Lionel Roosevelt's offer of n division, contained a phrase which has attrae-.-cd much attention. The . President explained that tin: regular army Officers whom the Colonel wanted, to take with his division 'were- nfcedod for the "much .nor  pressing and necessary duty ot training tho regular troop:; to be put in the field in France and Belgium as fast as they can be got ready." So far as Is known that was the first official mention ot putting American troops in Belgium and the sentimental value of sending troops hearing the American flag to the violate 1 soil of the little country has qu'i.kly been recognized. Those who favor it point out that since the United States entered the war to defend humanity against German aggression its troops could be no better employed than in behalf of the most out-raged'o,f all humanity.
