DAD L[AVES MILLION
SON TURNS IT DOWN
Charles Garland Denounces System
That Made it Possible
NPLANS TO WORK SOME DAY
Another Brother Takes His Share
While a Third Son May Refuse
Buzzards Bay, Mass., Nov. 29.
Charles Garland, the young man who
has renounced his right to a million
clollar legacy left him by his father,
James A. Garlands who was a wealthy
club .man and yachtman of Boston,
today made a formal statement of his
!easons, fo.r rejecting the money. His
statement, he said, was due to the
t'adt that the many reports of his fail
aire to accept the legacy had failed
properly to present his position.
"I rcfuse to accept the money be
-ause it is not mine," was young Gar
and's summary of his action. "A sys
tem which starves thousands while
hundreds are stuffed condemns itself.
A. system which leaves a sick woman
helpless and offers its services to a
healthy man condens itself. It is
.wtch a system that offers me a million
dlollars," ho continued.
"It is blind to the simpliest truth
snowvn to every child, the truth that
~he hungry should be fedl anti the
iaked clothed. I intve had t~o choose
between the loss of private property
-nd the law which is wvritte nin every
human heart. I choose the one which
I believe to be true."
