at a meeting of Bolton-Kaslca post
of the American Legion last night,
upon suggestion of State Commander
E. P. Armstrong, who gave an Inter
esting talk on the possibilities of
having a large organisation in Berlin.
The commander spoke to an audi
ence composed of about 60 ex-servicemen,
the largest turnout ever seen
at. a Legion meeting. He told of the
alms of the Legion and what it. has
accomplished in this state and na
tionally. He said that he was sur
prised at the number of men in at
tendance, knowing that the member
ship of the post was not. large.
He said thcl I he Berlin post stands
a chance of being one of the most
active In the slate and suggested that
the drive be started, friendly com
petition between the three districts
doing a great leal toward securing
the results. He said that, if the local
post can seeure 61 members by Au
gust. I. It will be allowed one more
delegate to the coming ctato conven
tion in Auguat.
Following Armstrong's talk Com
mander Pasqualo GiannoKa appoint

upward climb.
