VETERANS SHOULD STRAIGHTEX
OCT THEIR WAR RECORDS
Every veteran of the world war from
this state who has any doubt that his
record in the files of the war department
is incorrect is urged by Capt. Thomas J.
Bannigan. adjutant of the Connecticut de
partment of the American Legion, to
write at once to Washington to make the
necessary correction. The time is short
and the matter should be given immedi
ate attention. The war department has
announced that it will begin soon to ar
rest alleged draft dodgers throughout the
country and that it has prepared a list of
names of the men who, it believes, desert
ed their country in time of need. Ex
soldiers have less than two weeks in
which to help the war department clean
up any misleading or inaccurate facts
about them. Captain Bannigan pointed
out that it weld be regrettable to have
the names of volunteers, some of whom
died in service, appear with the names of
There are now on the records at
Washington 173.911 names of men held to
he draft deserters: It is unquestioned
that a considerable number of them be
long to individuals who had an honorable
part in the war. These soldiers, marines
or sailors were volunteers who entered
the service before they were called. Many
of them went while the draft law was
still in congress. Others followed before
draft boards were organized and the offi
cial machinery set in motion. They and
their immediate relrtives and friends were
the only ones cognizant of their going.
Being eligible for the draft, however,
their names were written on the lists and
were not crossed off either during the
stress of wartime wcrk or after the draft
law ceased to operate.
The list of guests who have accepted
invitations to address the state convention
of the American Legion in Bridgeport
Aug. 20 and 21 includes General Clarence
R. Edwards, former commander of the
26th division and now in command of the
northeastern department, and Major Gen
eral John F. O'Ryan, commander of the
New oYrk 27th. Other prominent guests
who have notified Captain Bannigan that
they will attend the convention are Lieu
tenant Governor Clifiord B. Wilson, may
or of Bridgeport ; Rev. Francis A. Kelley
of Albany, national chaplain of the Le
gion and known as the "Fighting Chap
lain of the 27th division ;" R. G. Cholme-ley-Jones.
director of the war risk insur
ance at Washington ; R. T. Fisher, acting
chief of the federal board for vocational
education ; Major F. H. McKeon. nffic-r in
charge of the United States public health
service at Allingtown. Governor Holcomb
is also expected to be present.
It was learned Friday that one of the
matters that will ccme up before the con
vention will be a request to eliminate
from various honor rolls throughout the
state the names of men who are not en
titled to such honor. It was said that
many names oh various honor rolls in the
state, and, in fact, throughout the United
States, do not belong on these rolls and
are not entitled to such recognition. It
was pointed out that on many honor rolls
are included the names of men who earn
ed high wages in munition plants and
that these names are listed with those of
the men who served the government at a
dollar a day. A resolution will ask that
all the names be checked up and cerified
and if it is found thatjeertain names do
not belong on the rolls that these names
be eliminated. '. '
