neighbors and an ocean's

distance from the great

military powers of the

world. Switzerland depends

upon a national militia. Service

in this national militia is

universal and compulsory,

lasting from the age of 20 to

that of 48. The first training of

the militia soldier is in

recruits' schools, for a period of

65 days. After this first training,

the militia goes to camp for

11 days each year for eight or ten years.

This is a

better system than that of

other Europeans countries

which takes young men for

two years out of the ordinary

walks of life and trains them

into a lust for slaughter.
