WHY I WISH I COULD JOIN
THE AMERICAN LEGION
Uy DR. FRANK CRANE
One of the best things that comes
out of war is comradeship.
It is impossible to prevent this
comradeship even if we wanted to.
Ex-soldiers are held together by the
strong ties ot fellowship.
That Is the reason why, If I were
an ex-soldier, I would join the Am
In other words, the American Le
gion is inevitable.
It is every citizen's duty to use
existing agencies and inevitable
forces. If he does not use them,
other men will.
The best way to make the Am
erican Legion a force for good is
for all good men to Join it, take
part in It, and dirt.ct its energies
in wholesome ways.
The American Legion ought to be a
tremendous power for good, for In
telligent patriotism, and for sound
It is so now. The way to keep it
so is for every man who is qualified

Army: Pursuant to the authority
contained in the army appropria
tion act for the fiscal year endir.g
June 30, 1923, the Secretary of War
has appointed an elimination board
to dispose in an equitable way of
the services of approximately 1700
army officers. The chairman of the
board is Major General Joseph T.
Dickman. Other members who will
serve with General Dickman are Ma
jor General Merritt W. Ireland, Ma
jor General Henry P. McCain, Brig.
General Andrew W. Brewster and
Brig. General Ernest Hinds.. It will
be the function of this board to pass
upon the records of all officers In
the army and determine the rela
tive value of such officers to the
government. Those for any reason
ot least value in the judgment of
the board will be separated from
the active service by December 15.
Special: We desire to call to the
attention of all officials of the Am
erican Legion the following exerpt
from a letter issued by the director
of the United States Veterans' Bur
eau relative to applications for com
pensation.: "Section 309 of the act is a sec
tion which has been enforced but
little up to the present time, the
reason being that the five years
mentioned therein has not run tor
many of the discharged service men
who desire to claim their rights un
der this act rather than under the
pension law. Those who were dis
charged between April 6, 1917 and
October 12, 1917, have an optional
right, that is, they can either ap
ply to the pension bureau or to the
veteran's bureau if they apply with
in the statutory period, namely with
in five - years. Persons discharged
after October 12, 1917, will have no
right whatever unless they make
claim within five years from the
date of their discharge. An example
of that is "a man discharged from
the navy on S. C. D. lUicember 1,
1917, files claim with the Veterans'
Bureau at one of the district offices
on December 15. 1922. His claim
must necessasarily be disallowed be
cause he has not applied for com
pensation within the five year peri
od, unless he has a certificate of
injury, which he must get before
August 9, 1922." This Is vitally im
portant to discharge ex-service men
and should be given as much pub
licity as possible III order that the
rights may not be lost because of
this feuture of the acts.
"The above outlined relates also
to application for compensation be
cause ot service connected with
deaths. Parents who are not receiv
ing compensation must show de
pendency within five years after he
death of the person on account of
whose service claim )s made. This
provision of the act is found in Sec.
301, subdivision "G" and should also
bo given publicity.
"It is thought well to also call
attention to Section 315. This sec
tion of course only covers those who
are enlisted after February 9, 1922.
Should a claim be filed by a dis
charged man who enlisted after Feb
ruary 9, 1922, regardless of the date
ot discharge, at the present time he
is without protection. Several acts
are pending in congress to cover
such class of claimants but as the
statutes now stand there is no act
to protect them; neither the veter
ans' bureau nor the pension office
lias any jurisdiction over them.
"District offices are again request
ed to send in their requisitions for
cases desired by them as soon as
the claimant makes contact with
their offices and not wait until
they have a number of them in or
der that they can be requisitioned
in bulk. Better service can be giv
en all around if the requests are
made immediately after contact with
the district offices."
Trophies: Your national legislative
committee is taking steps to make
a drive upon the House of Repre
sentatives to secure the passage of.
S.674, a bill providing for the equit
able distribution of captured war de
vices and trophies among the several
states and territories, which passed
the senate on May 2, 1921. The bill
was considered by the house mili
tary affairs committee, reported on
June 13, 1921,, discussed on the floor
of the house August 3, 1921, and re
committed, objection having been
made to the appropriation of $400,
000, the estimated cost of the dis
