POOR LEAD TO OBTAIN SPLIT .Attempt to Arouse Indignation Over " ' 'Horror on tho Rhine" Proves Dismal Failure. ' ' "The Germanoiilille attempt to .arouse American indignation ovej 'the ihorror on the Khlne' anil thereby to lead to a split, spiritual rather than diplomatic, between America and her recent allies has failed of Its purpose In precisely the sume wuy that Ger man propaganda In this country failed In every one of .the years between 1914 end 1918," says an editorial in the American Legion Weekly. "The truth Is merely that the Ger mans do not know how to go about It. 'Kultur' obviously does not include any knowledge of the fine art of get ting gomeethlng over, a fact amply at tested by the reflex action which has -accompanied the present attempt. The Von Mach style of persuasiveness Is no more subtle than the efforts of a St. Bernard puppy to stand up on a hardwood floor. It Is flattering the v Von Mach type of 'boring from within' to call: Its Insidious. Insidious It Is, however, In Its Intent if not In its ap plication. "Dr.; Von Mach has proved himself a poor servant of his country, wheth er he regards his country as America or Germany. He is a poor American for having tried to win America over to the point of view of the unrepen tant nation to defeat whose govern ment 100,000 Americans gave their lives, for attemplng to resurrect a hyphen that was theoretically burled Just three years ago. He Is a poor German because his clumsiness has served only to arouse America to the fact that she Is still at war with Germany." POST WINS ON GOLDEN CALF 'Two-Headed Animal Aids in Raising , Organization's Funds From ' ' ' $100 to $1,500. ? The Golden Calf of the Twentieth century has been discovered by the American Legion post at Fredericks burg, Va., which owes an Increase In Its working capital from $100 to $1,500 to a two-headed Juvenile cow, In full ' scant $100 last fall. - Having Induced a Westmoreland county fanner to part with the freak 1 animal for this sum, a special levy of various small amounts was made upon the treasury to buy nourishment for the calf. Then came the Virginia state fair In Richmond and the calf ( was In full bloom, eating both his heads oiT and waxing fat withal. . : The Fredericksburg post put him on exhibit, charging a suitable fee. J., When the fair was over and the dust .' had settled, the post treasury con tained $1.500 the accrued earnings of TWO HEROES AS HONOR GUARD Distinguished Illinois Buddie Dele gated to Save National Comman der on Inspection Trip. When P. W. Galbralth, Jr., national commander of the American Legion, inspected Illinois posts, he was pro vided with an honor guard of two heroes of the World war, who have received 16 medals and citations for bravery between them. Left Sergt. Jack KUey, M. C. of Chicago, Is Illinois' most decorated war hero. He wears the Congres sional Medal of Honor, French Mili tary Medal, Croix de Guerre with palm and star, D. S.

Right Robert Waterhouse, a vet eran of the 83rd Division of Chicago, holder of the Distinguished Service Cross, British Distinguished Service Order, Croix de Guerre and Belgian War Cross. more ex-service men into their ranks," said Governor Neff. , "The record set by the, men who form the department of Texas, during that period preceding November 11, 1918, and the principles advocated by these men since they have welded themselves Into the American Legion," he continued, "leads me to suggest that the public would be serving its Own ends, as well as those of the American Legion, by lending active support tn the membership campaign the latter has launched. The (former service mnn who has not affiliated with the American Legion should need no one to point out the advantage to be de rived by him and his country' through his support of this organization; but In the rush of modem life, some things are overlooked and those who have not the privilege of eligibility for the American Legion may aid by calling this to the attention of their acquaint ances who have been in the service.' LEGION MEN HIT BY RULING National Judge Advocate Decides Or. Ionization Officer Ineligible If Holding Public Office. A decision of far-reaching impor tance as affecting the participation in politics of men holding office In the American Legion has Just been hand ed down bv RnhMt A. Ailnms. na tional Judge advocate of the Legion, In response to an Inquiry from the Inter Post Council of Los Angeles, Cal. At its annuul election held In De cember a Los Angeles post elected Channlng Follette as commander .for 1021. A short time afterwards Fol lette was appointed Justice of the peace by the board of supervisors of I.os Angeles county. The question arose whether. In view of the fact that Follette had "been ap pointed to an office which, in its na ture, expept In the matter of rilling vacancies, is an elective, salaried pub lic office, he was eligible to serve as an officer of the Legion. In his official ruling, the national Judge advocate says: "This being a salaried, elective pub lic office, It is my opinion that the method of Ailing a vacancy Is not es sential In determining the eligibility of a Leglonalre holding such office. The office is elective, although the case with which we deal is Uiat of an ap pointment "The purpose of the constitutional provision is, of course, to prevent, so far as possible, the use by a member of the Legion of his Legion member ship In furthering a political career. Consequently, the effect of an ap pointment Is In no wise dissimilar from an election, and it Is my opinion that the Incumbent is, by the accept ance or qis- oujce, rendered lneTigime for the oflpe of the American Legion," 'It ,1s believed ' that many- Legion members, appointed to political offices will be affected by this ruling. PAY TRIBUTE TO THEIR DEAD Minnesota Legionnaires Pay Homage to Deceased Buddies Who Fought for Their Country. In a little cemetery among the pines where sleep Hip Members of his family at Cloquet, Minn., the body of John De Foe, the flrst Minnesota Indian sol dier to die fighting for his country, wag laid to rest. Carl Anderson post of the American Legion paid homage at his funeral. Klsewhere through Minnesota, Le gionlres have been paying tribute at i the funerals of their dead buddies, ! whose bodies are being returned from overseas. "He was n clean-cut American, one ; of our very best, and his memory wHI be dear and sacred," said the com ' mander of Winnebago post, at the fun ; eral service of Private Vernon Bailey, In which fifty uniformed Legionnaires ; took part. The body of Ralph Oracle, after : whom BemldJI post is numed, was buried at his hone town with honors. GOVERNOR NEFF AIDS LEGION' Chief Executive of Texas Urges All Eligible to Become Members of the Organization. Governor Pat Neff of Texas has rec ognized the Importance of the Ameri can Legion's effort to extend its in fluence In that state by giving an un qualified endorsement of the member ship campaign now under way.

The activity of the American Legion in the mining districts of southeast Kansas Js another pertinent proof that the miunderstandlng between labor bodies and the ex-service men's organization has been dissipated. At Scammon, Kan., the climax of the eight-hour day celebration of the miners in District 14, was reached In ft ball at the Legion hall, under the ausplcles of Francis Ellison Post.
