Thanksgiving Cheer for Sick
and Wounded Ex-Service
Men Urged in Plea by
Slate Commander Deegan
Fathers of Legion Members
Will Organize in Kings;
Foch Expresses Pleasure
Over Receptions in City
"In the midst of our own joy and
thanksgiving let us not forget those
Who hove less for which to be thank?
ful" was the appeal sent out yesterday
from the state headquarters of the
American Legion in the Hall of Rec?
ords by State Commander William F.
"While we are surrounded by our
iamilics, thanking God that wo have
come safely through another year, let
tis remember those of the ex-service
wen who have not yet left the hoarj
pit?is. Let us remember also .those
thousands whose wounds and injuries
mceived in service have sent them to
the hospitals within the last year,
where they still await, some hopelessly!
"When we remember that thousands
aro coming down yearly with tubercular
ttoubles from king gassed over there
wo can see that some of these -poor
chaps have little to be thankful for.
Let a grateful American public which
has just made tribute to an unknown
hero, try a little to lift the load of care
from those in the hospitals, the rest
camp$-the institutions where they are
?till struggling manfully against-, the
??Baskets of home-cooked dainties,
flowers, books, cigarettes, pipes, to?
baccos?all these will -help. But a
personal visit and the warm hand clasp
of a patriotic American who really
wants those heroes to get well and
makes them feel that he appreciates
their every sacrifice?that is the best
help of all." -
Fathers to Organize
Fathers whose son's.are members o*
the American Legion have for some
time felt they have been slighted in
the organizing of various auxiliaries.
Police Lieutenant John F. O'Grady,
whose home is at 559 Seventy-ninth
Street, Brooklyn, and whose family has
been actively identified with Legion
affairs, has undertaken the task of cre?
ating an auxiliary composed solely ?f
the fathers of Legionnaires.
With this purpose in view he has
called a meeting for December 6 in the
Kings County headquarters at 123
Schermerhorn Street. Since its start
the movement has gathered momen?
tum and a record attendance
js anticipated. At the meeting several
prominent members of the legion \n
Kings County will make addresses and
an effort will be made to have the
" Daddy" Club established. Lieutenant
O'Grady has invited every man who
has a son in the Legion to attend this
meeting and help in setting down the
by-laws of an organization which will
?share the burden of supporting the
Legion in all its activities with the
members of the Women's Auxiliary.

Mrs. David S. Traitel Also
Asserts Wealthy Spouse
Spoiled Party at Pelham
Heath Inn and Used Rum
Charging frequent drunkennc.ss and
cruelty, Mrs. Mildred Franklin Traitel,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Nathan E.
Franklin, of the Hotel Willard, is suing
David S. Traitel, wealthy marble con?
tractor, for separation. Tho first hear?
ing of her charges was set yesterday
in tho Supreme Court for next Mon?
day. Sho asks alimony of $100 a week
and counsel fees of $2,600 on the con?
tention that the income of her husband
from tho Traitel Marble Company, of
Long Island City, is $150,000 a year.
Until Mrs. Traitel went to the hotel
to bo with her parents she and her hus?
band divided their time between their
apartment, at 145 East Forty-fifth
treet, and their Bummer home, at Belle
Harbor. She saya she is without in?
come except $224 a year from railroad
stocks given to her by her grandfather,
Harris Franklin, when she was a little
girl. The grandfather, a wealthy re?
tired mining man, lives at tho Hotel
Mildred Franklin and David Traitel
were married in Washington November
5, 1918, following their elopement from
New York soon after tho woman, then
only nineteen years old, had been
graduated from the fashionable Semple
School for Girls. At that time her
father was president of the First Na?
tional Bank of Deadwood, S. D. At
present he is the head of the Kny
Scheerer Corporation of America,
dealer in surgical instruments.
Traitel, his wife charges, began hits
mistreatment not long after their mar?
riage, becoming drunk and abusing hei
while they were on their honeymoon
in Washington. She frequently for?
gave him, she says, on his promise to
cease drinking, which he failed to do
On various occasions, she declares, he
pointed a revolver at her, twisted hei
nose until her face wnB lacerated, and
drove hor from her home to those of
her parents or friends.
Once, she says, when she and her
husband were dining with friends at
Pelham Heath Inn, he drove off and
left her with their guests. While they
were debating what to do, and after
tho other man in the party had paid
the dinner check, she assorts, her hus?
band returned? stalked into the dining
.room, grasped her by the back of the
neck, bent hei- arms behind her back
and dragged her out to his car. On the
way home, she saya, he twisted her
nose again. Arriving at their apart?
ment, she says in her complaint, her
husband left her and was not seen at
home again until 4 o'clock the morn?
Traitel has entered a general denial
of nil his wife's charges, and has no?
tified her lawyer, H. Randolph Guggen?
heimer, that he will oppose her motion
Egyptian Cotton Cargoes
To Net U. S. a Profit
Will Be Small Until Business Is
Obtained for Vessels on
From Th? Tribune's Washington Bureau
WASHINGTON, Nov. 28.~-Movement
of Egyptian cotton in Emergency Fleet
Corporation vessels will net the gov?
ernment a small profit, according to
estimates made to-day by officials of
the traffic division of the corporation.
There will be no great profit in the
tariff until cargoes on the outward
trips are obtained by American bottoms,
officals of the fleet said to-day, but on
the movement of cotton on the west?
ward trip it is expected that a Bmall
margin will result, as the vessels in
the trade would have to come Back in
ballast if the cotton cargoes were not
No definite Information is available
here as to the rate at which the cot?
ton will be carried by American vessels,
although it is known that the tariff
will not be less than that charged by
the British operators. Having been
allotted 60 per cent'of the cotton ton?
nage out of the port of Alexandria, the
Fleet Corporation is satisfied that no
effort will be made by competing car?
riers to wage a rate war.
It is the plan of the allocation
division of the Fleet Corporation to
put as many ships in the Egyptian cot?
ton trade as the traffic demands, and
instructions have boen issued to the
corporation's representatives in Alex?
andria and London to call on Washing?
ton for as many vessels as are required
to meet the demand.

Muscle Shoals Bid
Liberal, Ford and
Edison Tell U. S.
Pair Hope to Obtain Data
on Inspection Tour to
Clinch Bargain on Terms
Submitted to Government
DETROIT, Mich., Nov. 23 (By The
Associated Press).?Henry Ford and
Thomas A. Edison, during their forth?
coming inspection tour of the Muscle
Shoals, Ala., praiect, hope to obtain
data to convince tho United States
government that Mr. Ford's offer for
the nitrote and waterpower project is
liberal, it was announced at Mr.
Ford's offices at Dearborn to-day to
The Associated Press.
The information followed word from
Washington that tho government would
ask Mr. Ford to make certain modifi?
cations in his proposals, believed to
involve an increase in thff umount of
money he was willing to allot for
completing the dams at Muscle Shoals.
Mr. Edison will come to Detroit early
next week, it was announced, and soon
afterward ho and Mr. Ford will go to
i Alabama for their inspection, accom?
panied by engineers and other exports
1 on the Ford Motor Company staff. An
effort will be made to prove conclu?
sively that the government figures are
too nigh, if .was stated.
Mr. Ford is known to believe that
Muscle Shoals may bo made to pro?
duce one million horsepower. Under
the Ford plan, this power could be
made to produce steady employment,
directly and indirectly, for 1,000,000
men. Ha expects to convert it into one
of the greatest enterprises in the
United States within tho next six or
