ISSUES CALL TO VETERANS.
Plans for the organization of the American Legion, to be
made up of American soldiers and sailors, will be discussed at a
meeting held in St. Louis, May 8, 9, and 10, which has been
called by Lieutenant Colonel Theodore Roosevelt, Jr. He is
chairman of the temporary committee of organization and the
vice chairman is Lieut. Col. Bennett Clark, of Missouri, a son of
Champ Clark. The secretary, of the temporary organization is
Lieut. Eric Fisher Wood of Pennsylvania.
In the call for the caucus it was explained that ifhe idea
for the organization of war veterans had originated among offi-
cers in the overseas service and that the preliminary caucus of
about 1,000 officers and men was held in Paris on March 15.
It was decided that a second caucus should be held later in the
United States so that the men in service in this country might
have a voice in the plans for the organization and in the final
selection of the name.
"The purpose was to take the necessary initial steps to-
ward the formation of a non-partisan and non-political associ-
ation of the veterans of the 'Great War,' says the call issued
by Colonel Roosevelt, "an association which should keep alive
the principles of justice, freedom and democracy for which
these veterans have fought to preserve to future generations
the history and incidents of their participation in the war and
to cement and perpetuate the ties of comradeship formed in
"The duties of the caucus will be to adopt a tenative con-
stitution, and to appoint an executive committee which will act
in conjunction with the representatives of the Paris caucus to
make definite arrangements whereby the organization of the
American Legion will be perfected and whereby all officers and
enlisted men who have served in the military and naval estab-
lishment of the United States at any time.between April 6, 1917
and Nov. 11, 1918, will participate in the election of represen-
tatives to a convention to be convened on or about Nov. 11.school,
This convention will be composed of delegates from all States,
duly elected by the veterans, and will meet with full power and
authority to adopt, modify, or reject the steps taken by the
caucus, and to take such further action as may be necessary.
Minnesota members of the temporary committee are Colonel
G. T. Slade, Major Paul B. Cook, W. D. Mitchell, W. B. Thomas,
and Gordon Clark.

LUXURY IN EARLY TRAVEL
"Safety Barges" Instituted for Those
Who Feared Hazard of Voyage
on Hudson River.
The frequency with which boilers
blew up on the early Hudson river
boats led to the use of what were
known as "safety barges," and these.
ID their day, were considered the
utmost luxury in travel, comparable to
the private cars of the magnates of
today The barges were boats with
main and upper decks and were 'al-
most a? large as the steamers which
towed them. The rabble rode on the,
steamers. Inhaled the smells of the
kitchen and the freight holds, endured
the noise of the engines, and took the
chances of explosions, while on the
barges behind the elite 'traveled In
luxurious state. Food was brought
from the boat kitchen to the barge
-saloon over a swaying bridge be
tween -the vessels and, was served
with great aplomb under the direction
of the barge captain, who was a noble
figure In the setting.

Mae Marsh in "Spotlight Sadie,"
her new Goldwyn picture, comes to
the Elko theatre tonight and tomor

appealing touches of humanness
throughout the drama. It all comes
about when Sadie voyages from Ire
land to live with her sister and
brother-in-law. She finds theffli
wretchedly poor and the man a
drunkard. The poverty and squalor
of their tenement home disgust her.
When she sees a newspaper para
graph announcing the marriage of
an actress and the scion of a rich
family, Sadie gets the notion that she
would like to follow suit. "Then
I'll marry a wealthy man and let you
live with me," she confides to her-sis

the sufferings of the wounded and

great German guns. It depicts the
