AMERICAN LEGION SECTION
THE BONUS '
Washington, D. C, June 1. Busi
ness and financial Interests In the
United States, "who contributed least
and profited most by the war." are
flourishing a political pistol at con
gress and threatening to pull the trig
ger if that body passes tho adjusted
compensation bill for service men, ac
cordirg to Hanford McNider, na
tional commander of the American
Legion. The assertion was made
in a statement issued by Mr. Mac
Nider denying that the Legion had
ary thought ot'co-erclng congress.
"Enemies of the bill, have declar
ed that the Legion has uttered
threats, that it has held a political
pistol at the head of congress. Not
the slightest proof of the truth of
these statements has been attempt
ed, which has been wise because
not a vistage of such proof exists.
"But now, a real effort to coerce
congress reveals Itself, and the ef-

Mr. MacNider made reference to
the published threat of the financial
interests of "Republican pirsuaslon
that If the Republican congress pass
es the veterans adjusted compensa
tion bill there will be no contribu
tions from that quarter to the Re
publican funds." In the words of one
dispatch, the commander declared.
"Big business has informed Chair
man Adams of tho Republican na
tional committee that if congress
passes tho bonus, It may get some
soldier votes, but it will lose the
supoprt of business."
"The American Legion has made
a clean fight based on the merit,
justice, equity and economic sound
ness of this legislation and not one
scintilla of evidence has been pro
duced to dispute these contentions,"
M,r. MacNider said.
The Colorado state senate in ex
traordinary session has passod a re
solution "regretting and deploring
the dolay In the United States senate
in passing the adjusted compensation
bill," copies of tho resolution being
received here by the Colorado mem

MY FIRST PROPOSAL
We will pay for acceptable mater

ought to make a lot of money by
contributing to this column. Now
that the crop Is almost pau and
they are about to leave our midst
none of them should hesltatei In tell

come across. We will of course
keep your name out of print if de
sired, but remember, the emancipa
tion of women Is being rapidly ef
fected a few years ago long hair
and long dresses but whoever heard
of a woman being tripped up by her
walking ort the beach, I turned my
ankle not badly you know and as
I stumbled he caught me In his arms.
I cried: 'Oh Bill, I knew you loved
me," and I explained that he was
the only one I loved and how hap
py we were going to bo together
and we must keep our engagement
secret. That was my first Kauai proposal.
We were very happy and would still
be going together If Harry hadn't
come along. Harry had a Bulck.

Metal expands when heated.
When your motor reaches normal running
teniDcrature. the bearing and piston clearances
become tighter, due to the expansion ot the
metal. Experts estimate that the bearing and
piston clearances 'In an engine which has at
tained its normal operating temperature are
75 per cent tighter than in the same engine
when it Is not running and cold.
The tightening up ot the bearings and pis
ton clearances Is a gradual process following
closely the rise In tho operating temperature.
All oils become lighter in body and thinner when
subjected to the heat of engine operation.
One of your Important duties is to sec that.
In making a choice ot lubricating oil, you se
cure an oil which becomes lighter In body at
the same rate bearings tighten and piston
clearances grow smaller.
The right body at all operating
Por this season Zerolene oils have at all engine
temparaturoi exactly the required body to
splash and flow freely Into the fast-moving,
mall-clearance bearings to provide an ad

Because of their "olUness," Zerolene oils cl'ng
to bearing surfaces, and at the same lime otfer
in themselves a minimum of resistance to the
engine power going to the driving wheels.
For this reason they give perfect lubrication
