112 PRINCESS ST.
40 FT 8 PARADE
(Continued From Page One)
Governor of Canada Viscount
Alexander.
The only disturbance of the aft
ernoon was caused by a man'with
a horn which gave off a mellow
boo. The sound of the horn was
picked up by the microphones and
the radio networks had several
calls from puzzled listeners asking
if the Legionnaires had booed
Dewey and Mayor O’Dwyer.
The Legionnaires saved their
energies for the frolicking 40 and
8 parade which began moving
down Eighth avenue shortly after
6 p.m. Eighth avenue, a business
thoroughfare in midtown Manhat
tan, was turned completely over
to the “Society of 40 Men and 8
Horses.”
Boxcars Everywhere
Miniature locomotives and box
cars from all over the country,
were filled with shouting, cheer
ing Legionnaires. They crawled
along at an erratic but merry
pace.
One Legionnaire added an off
season note as he marched along
in a red Santa-Claus suit with a
mailbag slung over his shoulder.
He was pushing a metal hand
cart, laden to overflowing with
toys stuffed animals and
souvenirs, and was pulling on a
long cord a big gray dog mounted
on wheels.
At Times Square, the favorite
spot for mischief-making Legion
naires, Bill Ryan of Brooklyn pa
raded with a foot-high signboard
which read “To Hell With The
Men Who Brought Their Wives”.
Several paces behind him fol
lowed Mrs. Edward Kemptroupe
of Baltimore, who carried a red
lantern and shouted “The Women
Of The Legion Are Here, Too. We
can look out for our interests.”
Two ingenious veterans with
long fishing poles and two dead
fish caused more feminine shrieks
than all those with cap pistols,
water guns, squirting bouton
naires and shocking machines.

The men walked slowly down
Broadway holding their poles
aloft. When they spotted a likely
victim they walked up behind her
and lowered the dead fish in front
of her eyes.
Hundreds of extra policeman
were stationed along the rcute to
keep the crowd—and the paraders
—in order and firemen were post
ed at every fire alarm box, just
to make sure.
The dramatic peak of today’s
opening session of the 29th con
vention was the national me
morial service.
A single white candle lighted
cavernous Madison Square Gar
den as the Legionnaires paid trib
ute to their buddies who didn’t
come back.
Gen. Joseph T. McNarney, sen
ior representative on the U. S.
military staff to the United Na
tions, lit the huge white candle,
which was held by a hurricine
mounted on a high brass base,
with a slender taper.
He lit the candle with hopes that
this country would have the pa
tience and determination to solve
the problems of peace and “the
light of understanding to guide
agreement among nations on
plans for mutual welfare and to
maintain unity against whomever
threatens the common security.”
As the candle flickered in the
darkness Rabbi Roland B. Gittel
sohn sang “The Lord’s Prayer”
and A. Bonaheur sang the ballad
of world war I, “My Buddy.”
The mournful notes at “Taps”
on the bugle, ended the ceremony
and the lights came on again,
blanking out the candle’s gleam.
The women Legionnaires were
in their glory. Gov. Dewey, Mayor
O’Dwyer and Legion Commander
Paul Griffith paid tribute to them
for "doing all the Legion’s work
while the men take all the
credit.”

period. He said he had taken the
job with the understanding that
the controversy over the princi
pal’s post had been settled. He
stressed the need for order.
Mechanics Drive
County mechanics were employ
ed to drive the busses when Mad
dox was unable to secure four
drivers who served last term. One
bus picked up only one pupil.
There were no protesting groups
at the school as sessions started
this morning. A number of par
ent accompanied their children
as is usual on opening day.
Enrollment at the school is 500,
but officials said the daily aver
age attendance last year was 419.

TOMORROW: WOMEN’S FROCK
USED CAR PRICE
(Continued From Page One)
models had been selling for twice
their list price and 12-year-old cars
had been bringing $200 more than
their original cost.
These prices bob-sledded 40 per
cent and the drop was reflected
in the stock market. Garage and
car dealers issues fell aa much as
33 per cent. It was estimated 1,
000,000 cars already on the roads
would be laid up after October 1
and thousands of motorists who
have ordered new cars were ex
pected to cancel.
Orders Backlogged
However, .automobile manufac
turers were not expected to suf
fer any loss of business. Their
orders are backlogged for two to
three ears and 75 per cent of
their p.oduction already was ear
marked for export.
The powerful Federation of Brit
ish Industries, spokesman for 4,2(W
industrial firms and 300 trade as
sociations and the most important
employer group in Great Britain
urged an even more drastic prog
ram than announced by the gov
ernment.
The FBI demanded higher tax
ation to curb inflation, urging the
taxation rather than direct, and
called for immediate collabora
tion with Western Europe even if
it meant exporting coal.
The federation admitted that
coal exporting would create the
risk of further hampering Brit
ish industry, but said it would be
a good thing because wartime
associations proved “the value of
combining resources."
The federation also urged im
mediate rehabilitation of German
industry and further reduction of
imports of food and raw materials
in Britain.
"Our plea is *that this time the
surgeons should cut deep enough
to remove the cancer that other
wise will destroy us," the feder
ation said. "It is probably our
last chance.”
It also urged a halt in the labor
government’s plans for nationaliz
ing the steel industry and a cut
Of at least 450,000,000 pounds
($1,800,000,000) in the govern
ment’s program of capital pro
jects.
The press declared the new re
strictions were inadequate to meet
the emergency.
“The time has come for pro
tests,” said The Times, until re
cently a consistent supporter of
the government. “The combined
effect of the government's un
certainty and the hard fact of the
gap between ingoings and outgo
ings in the national acount is in
evitably to invite depression . . .
yesterday’s announcements have
all the air of another postpone
ment of critical decisions.”
