Proposed war referendum brings three witnesses to support people's vote on war. Washington, D.C., May 11. Retired Major General W.C. Rivers; Randolph Leigh, writers of McLean, Va., and Dr. Charles Tansill, Fordham professor and once professor at Washington's American University, who were supporting witnesses at a Senate Judiciary Subcommittee told hearings on a proposed war referendum amendment. Gen. Rivers said that wars 'allowed him to pick up a few medals, but what does the average citizen...or the average town in this country get out of war? What besides...heavy taxes and... disabled men?' Dr. Tansill urged adoption of the amendment as a means of curbing the power of the President to make war, and charged that both Polk and Madison involved the U.S. 'deliberately' in two wars. He also charged that the late Col. Edward M. House, Wilson's Secretary, had led the President down the road to war.
