THE LEGION WILL
MAKE ITSELF FELT.
A few days ago an American Le
gion post in South Carolina passed
a resolution in which it was declared
that Ambassador Harvey "lied" when
he made his infamous utterances at
the Pilfrrim dinner in London a few
weeks ao. Press dispatches state
that there was bitter argument as to
whether the short and ugly word
should be made even more emphatic
by prefixing the word "dam." We
can be very sure that every young
American in that meeting felt a tide
of resentment surging through his
being when he voted to characterize
a misrepresentation of his feeling?
as a false statement, especially when
such characterization was made in
such an impudent and tolerant way,
and of ideals for which so many
gave their lives.
The action of the South Carolina
post may be reckoned as representing
the sentiment of every loyal Ameri
can in the country, even though they
might not adopt the youthful char
acteristics in expressing it. Our
own post, Bert Hodge, has already
expressed itself in no uncertain
terms on this infamous utterance,
and hundreds of other posts in the
country have done likewise. And wa
may expect to see this impulsive sen
timent, this flame of resentment at
such gross impropriety on the part
of America's ambassador at St.
James, temper more firmly American
ideals in the souls of thise who edged
tile assault and accepted every hazard.
When memorial services were held
recently at a Hoboken pier there was
not one participating in an official
capacity in those services to venture
what; those men died for. There
was no explanation in the light of
separate treaty of peace signed with
Germany, simply as a bit of political
strategy to indicate contempt for
the policies of the administration re
cently in control.
As the New York World said re
cently: "At the dedication of the cemetery
at Gettysburg, Lincoln could plead
that "we here highly resolve that
thi;e dead shall not have died in
vaai that this Nation, under God,
shiH have a new birth of freedom,
and that government of the people,
by the people, for the people, shall
not perish from the earth."
No-where in the treaty which Mr.
Harding signed with Germany is
there a word for American ideals, a
'word indicating that young Ameri
cans gave their lives for a principle.
But averywhere the material, the in
sistence for damages for private
claimants crops out as if it wero
really a contract for settlement in a
justice of the peace court.
It was in May that Mr. Harvey
made his speach m London which
aroused such resentment in this
country that President Harding and
Secretary Hughes felt called on to
repudiate it But they spoke before
they acted, and a few weeks later
gave the lie to every word they ut
tered when they signed the separate
treaty and gave approval to every
word that Mr. Harvey uttered. In
his speech Mr. Harvey informed Eu
rope that the American people had
no ideals in the war and that we took
up arms against German autocracy
only because "we were afraid not to
fight." "That is the real truth of
the matter," .he added, "and so we
came along toward the ned and help
ed you and your allies shorten the
war. That is all we did and all that
we claim to have done."
Harvey knew the political atmos
phere at WWashington. He knew
that whether President Harding felt
that way about it or not that he
would chart his course along those
lines best calculated to appease
those who made him puppet.

world just now, it isn't ennui. f
