Legion Post Meets Tonight.
The Fremont Woodcock post of the
American legion will meet tonight at
8 o'clock in the club rooms.
Legion Auxiliary Also Meets Tonight.
The auxiliary will hold its regular
monthly meeting this evening in the
auxiliary rooms at the armory. Spe
cial notices have been mailed to all
members and it is hoped a large num
ber will be in attendance.
Records Wanted for the Hospitals.
Mrs. Mattie Miillette has just re
cently returned from Minneapolis
where she visited some of the hospi
tals that are caring for our sick and
disabled soldiers. The superinten
dents of the hospitals report that the
boys greatly enjoy the few phono
graphs and therecords which they have.
The music helps to relieve the monot
ony and furnishes a little amusement.
The only complaint is that the supply
of machines and records is too limited.
In one ward the men had only six
records and they played these six
pieces again and again. Nearly any
one who has a phonograph, has a few
old records or new ones that could be
weeded out of her collection and not
be missed at all. Some of our friends
occasionally make us presentsx
records that we never play. These
might bring hours of enjoyment to
hundreds of service men who are lying
in hospitals sick and crippled. If
those who have any records that they
are willing to donate for so worthy a
purpose will brin'* them to Mrs. Mal
lette or notify her, she will see that
they are sent to hospitals where they
will be much appreciated. Anyone
who has a phonograph that she wishes
to give away or sell at a reasonable
price is requested to communicate
with Mrs. Mallette.
William Roos represented the local
post at the tenth district meeting at
Minneapolis Saturday evening. He
was chosen as one of the vice-com
manders of the district. Commander
Berggren of the local post is the com
mitteeman for Mille Lacs county.
A large number of the legion boys

Saturday to consult with the veteran's

Legionaires of J. Burt Pratt post of
Virginia make a specialty of enrolling
noted ex-service men. Not long ago
they enrolled one of Madam Schuman

Any American legion post may se
cure a copy of the Armistice day pro

sending to Community Service, 1

request, together with ten cents in
stamps to cover mimeographing and

the principles of true Americanism for
which legionaires fought and for which
so many of the buddies died.

Mike Holm Makes Suggestion.
A combination of a small license tax
on automobiles with a tax of 1 cent
per gallon on gasoline used is sug
gested by Secretary of State Mike
Holm. Mike says he "believes the
change would eliminate much red tape
and produce as much revenue as the
According to his
idea the tax on cars should average
$10, ranging from $5 on small cars to
$15 on laige pleasure cars and trucks,
according to size. He has been study
ing the subject and says that states
using the tax on gasoline consider it
the best method.
"The gasoline tax places the burden
where it belongs," Mr.* Holm said
"The man who uses his car most gets
the most use of our roads. A, heavier
car takes more gasoline, and therefore
way. I believl iht7 isesteon th fairest ta
that can be worked out."
Mr. Holm has a letter from J. Grant
Hinkle, secretary of state of Olympia,
Wash., which says:
"The gasoline tax of 1 cent a gallon
is found to be one of the most satis
factory taxes we have. Almost $90,-
000 was collected in the first month,
a very substantial help in our road
Minnesota's program calls for $6,-
000,000 a year, and the present meth
ods hardly will produce that much.
Hjalmar Nilsson, state oil inspector,
says 200,000,000 gallons of gasoline
will be used in this state in 1921. A
tax of one cent a gallon would produce
about $2,000,000 on this basis and Min
nesota's 400,000 cars at an average Ji
cense of $10,00 would net $4,000,000
additional, making the $6,000,000 total
