C, April 80—-AU Of America's enormous power—man, money snd economic—must be thrown lata tte scales of war if tbe world is toi* be ssved. from Prussianism. And It must aew be available. Members of the French and British war missions today impressed this upon officials of this government with a psrslslsnoy that can permit of no doubt of Its truth. It was further emphasised today When Bene Vlvlanl, as head of the French mission, called at tbe White House and held * lengthy conference With President Wilson. It was the first time tbat tte President bad personally seen and convrsed with a member of either commission privately about the part America is to play in th* world conflict. When tbe conference ended tte president had ta his possession the real troth ot what America's task is. M. Vlvlanl placed before the President the exact status of the entent pewem. told him what tbey sre capable of under agisting ©Btsirions and gave BJm,» short, the first complete summary of the'wsr situation to date. The prospects tt the American flag toon flying tn the trenches of Northern France. grew materially brighter today. It IS the belief of the visiting commissioners that every dsy's daisy ta sending the first United States contingent means the prolonging of the war Jut that mutt* They have constantly Impressed the necessity tor epeed upon American officials. Much opposition to the plan of Immediately sending troops Is understood to hsve come from congress. This, it was learned today, was largely overcome at a dinner last nlgbt at" which a number of leading senators and representatives attended. wltt the French commission. It was said today tbat when tbe dinner ended tbe congressmen were converted to tte belief that troops should be sent at once. The effect of the Stars and Stripes In ths trenches, it was pointed out, would have a tremendous moral effect on both the German and French troops. An example was given tbe congressmen. When Parisian newspapers first announced that Russian troops Boon would be fighting pa French soil, the Germans put up placards ln their trenches saying that tho Paris papers were lying. When the Russian uniforms really did appear opposite the Oermans tbe effect was electrlflc. They did not know bow many Russians were over oa- tta other sate. The German papers reassured their troops by saying there were only a few, but the German sol* diers would not believe them. -' And what Is more significant about the.Russian.ax_nple.itla.being pointed out. Is the fact that they Whipped, tha Germans the first Bate they went against tbem on tbe western front. TSe Russians who went to Franca were raw peasant recruits; they hsd. less than three months military training before they arrived; their add* tary knowledge consisted principally of the msnue.1 of arms and how to march to formation. Five weeks wero derated to teaching them, within sound of the big guns, tte specialty work of trench warfare, bomb and hand grenade throwing and bayonet- ting. ..' Conference May fur Draft I y Age lahniis 21 to 35 Years At WAR DEPARTMENT IB BS BACKING SENATE ABB, Washington. D. C, April \ tht selective conscription biU passed by the senate much more closely meets the do* mands of the administration than tta house bill, tt was learned today following a visit by Secretary of War Baker at tta White House. What steps wUl ha taken to secure the adopting of tts prevision rather than those ot tte bouse bin by the conferees waa aot disclosed, however. The senate bill includes aaa from Si to 17, Inclusive; tbe house 11 to 40 Inclusive. mmmtmmmmt9tmmmmmmmmmrmmmm0mmmt9*tmmmmtm9tmmtm9 Tnnimlltasl Wsas Service: Waahlngton, DC C, April 80.—A compromise providing tor seleeBve draft of males betweea 11 sad 16 years of age probably wUl be reached at ths conference on the army bin to which tho ssasts aad house are expected to agree today. The chief difference ln the bills passed almost simultaneously by tbe ssaste and houso Saturday nlgbt is that tha house provides tor tha draft of men between It aad 40, while the asesSe makes eligible tor military service men between 11 sad 17 years. .S«» "dfe. As tts bouse recorded Itself this ta overwhelming victory sgainst the conscription of minors, tbe conferees wfll confine themselves solely to tto question af raising tte m-rimum draft Baa Thirty-five is taken to be a good middle betweea the house maximum ef forty and the senate's limit of 17.

The prohibition amendment was tacked oa the bill ta the sonata. It wfll meet with strong opposition ln tho bouse ea, "wot leaders" are prepared to fight tt aa attempt ta made to attaah a prohibition rider to the bill Repreeentative Mat, shairman of the, house military affairs committee sad hesd ot tha house managers ta conference, was to discuss the'Roosevelt sad prohibition features today with Secretary Baker. Support of the Roosevelt Mea wss found more enthusiastic ln the senate than ta the house. Tha lower body rejected the plan without a recorded vote. The suggestion Is made that Roosevelt if he ta golhg to tbe front. Should go with an army commission but without authority to raise an army of hla own of varying agaa aad military fit. nass. . Under ttls it is maintained by opponents of tte Mea would permit exactly the deficiency which congress ought to get away from in abandoning tta traditional volunteer policy ta favor of conscription. Chairman Dent said today that ho did not believe tt would require mora than' two days to adjust senate and house differences la conference. This means that the bill wfll be ready tor the presidents approval by tte middle Of the week aad in full operation before ita close. Three amendments adopted In the house probably wfll survive the conference. Theee sre tte Good-Austin amendment laorssslllg the pay of en* Bated men of tbe army from 111 to $30 during tte wan the Lever amendment specifying persons engaged In agriculture as among those whom the president may exempt from military duty and the Hayden amendment which bans payment of bounties or furnishing of substitutes to evade military service under conscription.
