In referring to his remarkable res

"About five years ajio I suffered
a general breakdown. My principal
trouble was nervous indigestion. My
appetite was very poor and my food
seldom agreed with me. and I had to
live on a very restricted diet. I suf
fered u great deal from headaches
and diy.zy spells I had severe pains
across the small of my back and was
badly constipated most of the time.
In fact I was so weak and rundown
I was not able to attend to my duties.
"This condition made me very nerv

Frequently I would lie awake most
all niivht and was in that condition
more or less for five years. My phy

for me and suggested a change of

most. unique American history
uiul one that has given tremendous
impetus to the nation-wide fight of
the American Legion to obtain at
least simple Justice for sick and dis
abled heroes of the World war, was
staged In the thriving little desert
city of Tucson, Ariz., recently.
Led by Gov. Thomas E. Campbell
and national, state and local repre
sentatives of the Legion, the entire
citizenry of the community brought
every business activity to a standstill
for a day while more than 5,000 men
and women in overalls or other appro
priate working garb, drove their auto
mobiles to Pastime park, three miles
north of the town, and labored with
their hands to expedite construction
of an emergency public health serv
ice hospital for tubercular ex-service
Governor Campbell, Ej J. Winslett,
national vice commander of the Le
gion State Commander Bert H. Clin
gan, Mayor O. C. Parker and hundreds
of other prominent business and pro
fessional men of the city and state
appeared in real working clothes and
manipulated shovels, picks, hammers,
saws and wheelbarrows in the great
est frenzy of activity the community
had ever known. The immediate re
sult was that the emergency institu
tion which government engineers
originally had estimated it would take
three months to build, was brought to
virtual completion within one week,
and more than 500 tubercular dere
licts of the war who had been unhos
plt.nlized and partly shelterless, sud
denly found themselves with a roof
over their heads
The whole demonstration was
planned and carried out within a lit
tle more than 48 hours, while Governor
Campbell and State Legion Comman
der Clingan made flying trips from
Phoenix to address a mass meeting
under legion auspices at the armory
on the evening preceding the park
event, and to participate in*the "heavy
work" there next day. The chief
executive of the commonwealth
pushed a wheelbarrow full of rocks,
drove an ex-army truck and wound
up his strenuous afternoon with an
impassioned plea to Tucsonians and all
good Americans to get together and
stand squarely behind the legion in
"the most Important movement now
starting here for the benefit of dis
abled er-service men that lias yet be
gun in the United States."
At the conclusion of his address,
the overalls the governor had worn
during the afternoon, and which fig
ured conspicuously in several hundred
feet of "movie" film unwound by a
Pathe News camera man, were auc
tioned off to the highest bidder, the
Morgan McDermott post of the legion
at Tucson. Approximately $200 for
the benefit of a welfare fund for pa
tients at the hospital was realized
from the auction, each bidder being
obliged to hand over the sum offered,
irrespective of whether It was high
enough to get the clothes. The bid
of the Legion. Post was $70.
The attention of F. W. Galbraith,
Jr., the legion's national commander,
was first attracted to the Tucson situ
ation after H. D. MacArtan, the public
health service physician in charge of
the hospital, had gone to Washington
and reported that more than half of
the 128 patients then In the- Institu
tion were sleeping In condemned
army tents, and that there ware ap
proximately 450 other tubercular ex
service men entirely txnhospitaliz^d
in the community as a result of the
congestion which followed the usual

this season of the year. These 450
men In dire need of the care and treat
ment they were not receiving, wore
distributed through the community
with such limited housing facilities
and shelter from the extreme cold of
the desert nights as their weary wan
derings happened to bring them.
Commander Galbraith sent E. J.
Winslett, national vice commander of
the legion, and n representative of the
American Legion News Service to Tuc
son to see what could be done to
remedy the situation. Their instruc
tions were to do all possible to speed
up construction work, co-ordinate the
efforts of all community interests and
visualize the local situation as an ob
ject lesson to thrust "under the nose
of congress" In the legion's national
fight for justice for the nation's he
roes of two j'ears ago and the legion's
comrades then, now and always.
Governor Campbell was in the East
at the time and assisted Dr. MacAr-
tan in inducing Director Cliomely
Jonep of the bureau of war risk in
surance and other government officials
to bring about the cutting of a vast
amount' of red tape. Dr. MacArtan
finally returned to Tucson witti author
ization to spend approximately $,",00,
(XXi for the erection of an emergency
hospital, and he brought with him
George E. Kirk, a federal engineer to
whom with his assistants much of the
credit for the record-breaking com
pletion of the project is due. Gover
nor Campbell placed state workmen,
materials, trucks and tools at the dis
posal .of the government and there
was from the beginning a hearty and
enthusiastic co-operation on the part
of the business and professional men
of Tucson, as well as the citizens gen
