HIRED American Legion Notes "FACTS NOT OflNIONS" The American Lfsrion will plead it case for adjusted compensation before every chamber of commerce in the country, according to a plan of Han ford MacNider, national commander. The Letrion'a object is to obtain a de cision favorable to compensation in the nationwide referendum on the subject which has been called for by the United States Chamber of Commerce at Washington. This body went on record againts compensation at its last an nual meeting1 and has since wajfed a bitter fiffht on the Legion's bill, but there have been no indications that its attitude has not reflected faithfully the stand of many of its individual mem bers. Chambers in such important cities as Cleveland, Ohio; Seattle, Washington; Portland Ore; and some twenty others have openly repudiated the proposition of the national organ ization and have adopted resolutions supporting compensation. That the Legion's attitude has been befogged by opponents of the measure is charged in a letter from MacNider to the president of the federal chamber copies of which have been distributed to every post. MacNider claims that & mistaken idea of the bill has been ppread abroad by the persistent attack on the "cash bonus" clause, which is only one of the five propositions for adjusted compensation. Cash, voca tional training, paid-up 20-year en dowment insurance, farm or home aid, and land settlement are the five op tional forms, and MacNider contends that the cash payment wil not be seized upon by an unreasonable per centage of ex-service men because it offers the least actual value of all. "Our point is that no referendum can be made fair unless those who consider the question know what the immediate issue is," the letter reads. "We urge that every facility be given them to understand." The father of his country would probably turn in his grave if he could see the name of one George W. Washington on the latest draft evader list sent out by the government. To corral the more than 100,000 slackers at large in the United States is a part of the 1922 program of the American Log-ion, but it does not promise to be .an easy task. Another listed member of the Bergdoll fraternity is Hoa Hum, who evidently was too tired or bored to join up. Charles Kaiser might have been excused for family reasons, but 3ie didn't even show up before the draft 8oard. Another listed is Sam Browne, who displayed no desire to wear the belt. An especial effort probably will be put forth to capture one Ton Nik, who would have added vim and vigor to the war had he participated. Grover Cleveland Johnson had more sympathy j p,, jt fully alongside its old for Bergdoll than he did lor the lata er and better established competitor president. ing the Americanism doctrine and of helping to prepare the country for de fense in the event of a f uture war. When the boy scouts of Colome were cently reorganized, the Colome post stood sponsor for the troop and took over the work of drilling their younger buddies. While the troop has a regu larly appointed scoutmaster, the le gion post designates one of its mem bers to drill the boys and he or an other member of the post gives them regular lectures on Americanization and service to the country. Walter Byrne of Omaha, former commander of the Douglas county post, haa been appointed chairman of the Nebraska I-egion Americanization committee by Commander Ritchie. Mr. Byrno made a good record for himself as a post commander, and is greatly interested in the Americanization pro gram. He is now working on a pro gram which will arouse interest throughout the state in this important phase of the Legion's duty. Purinton Finds a Way to Beat the Hay Marke4 Aurora Register: On Monday last we had a visit from E. W. Purinton, of Alliance, who was on the return trip from Wisconsin where he had been to buy a carload, 23 head, of high grade Holstein cows. He had an experience here. They asked him $1.25 a bale for hay that sells in his country for $5 a ton. It looked to him a little high and he came up town and bought it at 50c a bale, and hired a man to de liver it for 10c a bale, getting1 the whole for lass than half what was charged him at our stockyards, even when he paid the retailers' profits, a special delivery, and bought in a small amount. It was objected that he had no right to do anything but pay for the hay at prices specified, and he said that if the price had been fixed by the state officials at that figure, it was fixed too high. He had done the same at other points and no objection had been made to it, and he would feed his own hay, and if he afterward had to nav triple price for it he would do so. He paid an average of $71 for his Holsteins and said that pure orea year ling bulls could be bought for $80 to $150. The Babcock herd had the fin est animals he ever saw. They are making money in dairying and cheese making where hay is $24 a ton, and he thinks he should be able to do some thing at one-fifth the figure. He is a brother of Earl Purinton, who is now at Sterling, but wa3 formerly a day operator at Aurora, and whose wife was Rose Trimpe of his place. They are doinpr well. He knows the Burr boys of Alliance well and wanted to see the Aurora office. He says they are getting along fine, and that it is recoenized by all that they have made . the greatest improvement in the Her- Oshkosh Editor Gives His Opinion On Road Question The editor of the Garden county News, fearless and unafraid, contri utes the following to the discussion concerning the relative merits of the North Star and G-P-C routes, and the attitude of the state road officials thereon: "It would seem to the editor of the Garden county News from all of this that the connecting link in the great highway from the Gulf to the Canad ian boundary is thus to be held up un til the spirit moves the state depart ment to investigate and pass judg ment upon its true merits. There never has been but one feasible route with the backing that wa3 necessary to put it through. This was side stepped to a certain extent by the jealous maneuverings of the North Star proposition. Now that the North Star no longer "shines" the Morrill county commissioners still are tying to their hopes of a north and south road through the county seat, regard less of its merits,'and the information to the state department heads has had just enough facts in it to cause them to bow their necks. If systems con tained as much respect for fairness as they are with the dignity of the offices, they would have given this matter their attention some time ago. If Division Engineer Gaddis shaa been over both routes and still persists in the Bridgeport route, his head should be examined."

This clever girl, in a clever photoplay, made a hit with the spectators Monday night, and those who did not follow the plot last night are missing something out of the ordinary if thev do not get in on the last showing this evening. The story deals with a girl from the mountain country, a harum-scarum little miss, for whom life began to be pretty in teresting when folks discovered that she owned a gold mine.

Major General Harris, adjutant of the army, has recommended that con gress appropriate $250,000 to pay re wards of $50 for each draft deserter delivered to the military authorities. Many posts of the Legion, on the trail of slackers, have signified their inten tion of collecting the rewards and using the money for the relief of needy or disabled ex-soldiers.

Legion chiefs of the 4th congres sional district gathered at Seward on "hoodoo" day Friday, January 13, where they held a most successful meeting and started off in fine style a series of meetings to take place throughout the ftate. Over fifty Legion post commanders and adjutants were in attendance. All problems before the Legion in Ke'n-aska for the coming year were fully discussed, and state officers and committee chairman outlined their respective work. "When I came here this morning I knew little about the organization," one commander stated. "But I am going home with a new vision and chuck full of information." William Ritchie, jr., department com mander, presided. Adjutant O'Connell, Executive Committeemen Marion Shaw and Henry Fouts, all made talks of the work before the organ ization. H. H. Antles, secretary of the department of public welfare of Nebraska, was present and made an interesting talk on the new boxing law. J. Ed. C. Fisher and Walter L. Anderson, members of the state fund relief committee, explained the working of the new state aid bill. The visiting Legionnaries were the guests of the Seward post. A lunch eon was held at the chamber of com merce at which the mayor and the president of the chamber made brief talks. is one of the things responsible for un happy married life. There is another view that married life is responsible for a lot of fiction. Parents or wives of Americans who oied overseas during the worald war and whose bodies have not been re turned would have an opportunity to -visit the graves of their deceased at government expense in a resolution introduced into congress by Repre sentative Hamilton Fish, New York, a member of the Amencan Legion. The resolution directs the secretary of war to provide transportation to American cemeteries overseas. The 43,262 good deeds to unfortu nate buddies performed by Amencan Legion posts of Minnnesota in 1921, cost $75,000. lhe list does not in clude 21,000 cases wherein hospital treatment, back pay, vocational train ing and compensation were secured for disabled men. - Get 'em while they are young is the belief of the Thayer-Waters Post at Colome, S.
