Defending the American Legion's
program for the flve-yoar excision of
immigration, the Hooslcr Legionnaire,
published by the Indiana department
of the legion, criticises Andrew Mel
lon, United States secretary of the
treasury, for his appeal for cheap la
bor to aid the steel Interests. The
Hoosler Legionnaire says editorially:
Not content with attempting to
block each move of the 'American
Legion to obtain adjusted compensa
tion, Secretary Mellon now seeks to
obstruct the legion's program for re
striction of immigration. Mr. Mellon
declared that certain classes of labor
essential to certain American Indus
tries should be exempted from exclu
slon. It is interesting to note that
the classes "Mr. Mellon would allow
to come In arc essential to the stool
interests and the Ighty or more al
lied corporations of which ho Ii one
of the chief stockholders. A total, ex
clusion law would deprive Mr. Mel
lon of some of his cheap alien labor.
Andrew Mellon has been pictured as
a man of immense wealth who Is pa
triotically sacrflcing his time In the
president's cabinet at a mere pit
tance. The fact is that his position
as secretary of the treasury Is wcith
more In dollars and cents to the priv
ileged Interests, of which Mellon Is
one, than any other office ho could
fill. His latest attack on the proposal
for a five-year-total exclusion of Im
migrants is propmted by 'ho Lame
personal selfishness that characteriz
ed his attack on adjusted compensa
tion and "his opposition to the surtax
and excess profits tax. The moral fi
ber of the nation means nothlii.3; to
Mellon when his money is at .itaUe.

the most part selected useful gifts
which would help them In making

Mrs. Dean. "Ono Httlo girl twelve
years old asked for a copy of 'Les
Miserables' and a fifteen-year-old
boy selected 'Thp Technique of tho
Linotype,"" Mrs. Dean said. "Other
requests were for Longfellow's poems,
the Bible, Testaments and (he work
of Browning. In not one (nstanoq'
was there a call for a book other
than a classic." Yarn for sweaters
was second choice of many girls, ac
cording to Mrs. Dean, while a num
ber of boys asked for sweaters, skates
and sleds as second preference. Al
