It is plain that there is now no

For instance, only 5 per cent of
the total membershipl of the army
and navy were commissioned officers,
95 per cent were enlisted men.
Thus one would suppose that any

sailors, to be fairly represented,
would maintain the same propor

The American Legion thus far has
held two meetings--one at Paris; the
other at St. Louis.
At both these meetings commis
sioned otfficers were in the majority
---i. e., more than half of those who
attended were commissioned officers.
At St. Louis, for instance, 60 per cent
of the delegates were officers.
If the proportion of officers in the
army and navy had been followed at
both these meetings, only 5 per cent
of the delegates would have been of

Simply this: When it was proposed

BAIL IS WANTED
WITHOUT FAIL FOR THE
MEN WHO ARE IN JAIL
HIundreds of workers are literally rotting in the jails of this country
because of their activity inl the cause of Labor. Many of these victims
of the worldl-wide class war are awating trial-and have been waiting
cor many weary months for the speedy trial guaranteed them by the
United Slates Constitution. Others were tried and sentenced to terms
ranging from one to twenty years during the period of war hysteria,
and appeals in their cases are now being taken from King Capital drunk
to King Capital sober.
Some of the prisoners have escaped by death, others are dying, many
have contracted tuberculosis and other loathsome diseases, and all are
suffering untold agony from close confinement in the fetid atmosphere,
from insanitary and unileallhy surroundings, from poor and insufficient
food, and from inhuman treatmenlt accorded them by brutalized guards.
Past attempts to secure bail for all of these workers in jail have not
been attended with great success because of the lack of system. In
dividuals sought to secure bail for their personal friends, and failing to
get the necessary amount they returned what had been collected, thus
making their entire efforts fruilless. This was the condition facing the
delegates from all the westernu district organizations of the Industrial
Workers of the World when they met in conference on July 3 and 4 in
Seattle. The delegates solved the problem by an unfailing means
A Bail aid Bond Committee was elected to systematize the work of
collecting bail and a nation-wide drive has been started to secure the
loan of cash, Liberty Bonds and property sufficient to gain the release
of all class war prisoners. Wilh practically no advertising Six Thou
sand IDollars were raised in the first five days. More than Two Hun
hded Thousand Dollars are needed to release those now being held for
their Labor activity.
Sums of Five Dollars and up are accepted as loans, and all cash, Lib
erty Bonds or property is tabulated in triplicate, one copy going to the
person making the loan, another being retained by the Bail and Bond
Committee, and the third being filed with the Trades Union Savings
and Loan Association of Seattle, with whom all funds, bonds and prop
ert.y scledules will he banked.
Only those who have been proved loyal and trustworthy are being
sent out as collectors. Everything possible has been done to safeguard
this bail and bond fund, from the selection of the committee to the
choice of the bank. A portion of the fund is being set aside to return
loans on demand in case persons who have made them are forced to
leave the country or have other reasons for making a withdrawal.
Bail will be used to release specified persons where that is desired,
but otherwise the release will take place by a blind drawing of names,
thus insuring fairness to all prisoners. By common consent the Men
in Wichita, Kansas, jail will first be released, as they have been held
the longest and jail conditions are worse there than anywhere else in
the entire country. This hail has nearly all been subscribed, and the
men will he made accredited collectors when released, and their speedy
release will help to set others at liberty.
No necessity exists for argument. Your duty is clear. If your ears
are not deaf to a call from your class, if you feel that an injury to one
is an i njury to all. if there burns'within you the faintest spark of human
ity, you will see that the men do not remain behind the bars an un
necessary minute because you withheld your support.
