State Commander A. H. Vernon has
issued to all legion posts the official
call for the third annual Minnesota
legion convention at Winona, August
1, 2, and 3. Each post may send two
delegates and two alternates and one
additional delegate and alternate for
each 100 paid-up members or major
fraction thereof. Reduced railroad
rates are being sucured and Winona
citizens will go the limit to furnish the
delegates the time of their lives.
As a tribute to the memory of the
late Commander Galbraith and to ful
fill his last wish, every Minnesota
legionaire will lay a friendly hand up
on the shoulder of a buddy on July
Fourth and "sign him up," according
to an appeal issued to all legionaircs
of the state by the department com
mander, A. H. Vernon of Little Falls.
This "every member get a member"
drive will be launched all over the na
tion July 4 in accordance with plans
issued by Commander Galbraith before
his death. Incidentally July Fourth is
the birthday anniversary of the new
national commander, John G. Emery
of Grand Rapids, Mich.
In an urgent message to Minneso
ta legionaircs to help organize units
and gam new members for the legion
auxiliary, State President Dr. Helen
Hughes Hielscher of Mankato writes,
"It is a privilege to belong to the
legion auxiliary. Let all eligible
women in your community know it.
You tell them, buddysoldiers' wives,
mothers, sisters and daughters. Tell
them there are soldiers dying without
help or comfort from their own be
cause there are not enough units or
members of the legion auxiliary to
cover the whole field. Tell them there
are soldiers who fought for law and
justice who are turning radical be
cause they are neglected by the peo
ple whom they served. Tell them the
women of Minnesota are mobilizing
in the legion auxiliary, not for war,
but for love and faith and hope. Tell
them to come now when the work is
beginning, and not to be like the men
who wanted to enlist when the enemy
was on the run. For at least 12 years
we must strain at a task always grow
ing. There will be no slacking. Let
your relatives know of our work.
Death and disease take no vacation.
Have them join us now."
The legion auxiliary at Jasper be
lieves that actions speak louder than
words. So when the 15 members of
the unit realized $100 from the sale
of Memorial day poppies they prompt
ly sent it to the legion auxiliary head
quarters at Mankato with this brief
note: "Please place this $100 in the
fund which you are using to bring
cheer and comfort to the sick and
wounded soldiers in our government
hospitals. We are happy to be able
to send it, and we hope to do metter
next time." Not so bad for a unit in
a town of 700 population and just 15
earnest members.
Captain George Mallon, one of
Pershing's 100 heroes and candidate
for Lieutenant Governor of Minnesota
at the last election, who has just re
turned from Kansas, states, "You have
heard the statements that the Ameri
can legion tarred and feathered world
war veterans in Kansas. Those state
ments are lies. The men who created
the disturbance were thugs hired by
interests who wrapped themselves in a
cloak of loyalty."
Honored by his country, for which
he made the supreme sacrifice, hon
ored by the country in which he laid
down his life, revered by all who knew
him, the body of Private Elmer J.
McDonough of Kellogg, Minn., was
laid to rest with a military funeral.
Father William Harrington, legion
state chaplain and chaplain of the
151st F. A., Rainbow division, in which
Elmer McDonough so nobly served,
officiated at the funeral services and
took for his text the words of St.
Paul, "I have fought a good fight and
I have finished my course," adding,
"From the flag-draped coffin we may
learn the lesson of loyalty to God
and country. Elmer J. McDonugh
fought the good fight and finished his
course." And so, tenderly, with all
the honors that could be bestowed up
on him, his grave decorated with pop
pies, sprigs of evergreen, and the flag
of his country, the remains of Elmer
McDonough were laid to rest in his
beloved home soil.
Increase in Elk Herd.
A good increase from the survivors
of the southern Yellowstone or Jack
eon Hole elk herd is looked for this year
by officials of the bureau of biological
survey of the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture, In view of the
unusually favorable winter just past.
Last year's rains, it is said, produced
a plentiful growth of feed on the
ranges, and as a result the elk are
reported to be in excellent condition,
with the prospect of only a normal
death rate instead of a repetition of
the mortality of the winter of 1919-20,
due to lack of forage and a severe

pired this close game to the entire
satisfaction of the Princeton players
and contingent of rooters. We have
no kick on the umpire, crowd or
grounds. The only kick we have is
that we got the short end of the score
and the funny part of it is that we
deserved it.
Andy Anderson pitched good ball
for Princeton and it is no fault of the
youngster that he didn't win the game.
He was pitted against the vetoran
Arnold from St. Paul, and the record
shows that the kid had the edge of his
older opponent.
Grow did the heavy slugging for
Princeton. Out of four trips to the
plate he hit a sacrifice fiy, two singles
and a double. His heavy hitting drove
in both the Princeton scores. Batting
average for the game an even 1,000.
Larson, Fisher, Smith and Schimdt
also found Arnold for safe ones, ecch
getting a safe wallop.
Bob Berg was hit in the head with a
.pitched ball the first time up and was
forced to retire from the game. It
was an unfortunate occurrence, but no
one is directly responsible and this
might have happened to any player in
any game. We understand that there
are rib bad after effects and the whole
Princeton bunch, players and fans, arc
pulling heartily for our scrappy sec
ond baseman ?nd expect to see him out
next Sunday with the same old fight
and pep as before. With Bob in the
lineup at Lindstrom there might hrvc
been a different outcome to this game.

good second team will be a big asset
for Princeton baseball and the boys

India's New Capital.
What the relatively joung United
States did in founding Washington as
its capital, and what the still younger
Australia has undertaken in creating
its new capital city, Canberra, Great
Britain is doing for age-old India by
building a new seat of government
near Delhi, sajs a bulletin issued by
the National Geographic society.
In Australia the new city is being
carved from a piactically untouched
wilderness and in America Washing
ton was laid down where a few fresh
ly cleared farms were hemmed in by
wooded hills. In India New Delhi is
being built on ground where cities
ha\e risen and passed away through
the centuries, and about which are sit
uated beautiful and striking monu
ments of one of the world's most pow
erful empires.
The Sport of Kings.
Tennis was ever a distinguished
sport. It has been favored by the no
bility. In the recent tournament at
Cannes the king of Sweden and the
ex-king of Portugal handled their rack
ets with skill and dexterity in mixed
doubles with Mile. Lenglen and Mrs.
Bemish for partners. Mile. Lenglen
and King Manuel won the first set
from Mrs. Bemish and the king of Swe
den in the second King Manuel and
Mrs. Bemish were defeated by Mile.
Lenglen and the king of Sweden. Thus
honors were even in that each king
had a victory, though Mrs. Bemish was
twice defeated.Petit Parisien.
Ships Long in Service.
The vessels of past centuries had a
career which seems to us moderns
like the longevity of the patriarchs.
The Princess Mary, which brought
WUliam of Orange to England, was in
active service for more than 200 years.
She was seventy-two years old when
she arrived with the Dutch troops in
Torbay. Under the name of Betsy
Cairns she continued her labors after
her two hundredth birthday in the
transport trade between Britain and
the West Indies, foundering at last off
the English coast at the venerable age
of two hundred and fifty years.
Extend Rather Than Forbid.
Something like what Joseph pro
posed to Pharaoh for the conversion of
Egyptian agriculture, Secretary Her
bert Hoover suggests to the conference
of American farmers. Warehousing
facilities to store farmers' grain, wheat
in particular, so that the farmer can
sell at his own time, and his credit will
be broadened beyond the district of
his own-local bankthat is what Mr.
Hoover has in mind.
This is a measure of construction.
It is not forbidding something or regu
lating something else. It is not tying
up creaky apprratus in yards of red
tape. It is not abolishing facilities
which, whatever their faults, have
filled a need. It is not burning down
the barn to get rid of the rats.
On the contrary, it is a positive pro- iSunday and crossed bats with the
posal of something new and servicea
ble, l^is a piece of additional appara
tus to complete what is now not com
plete. It is a reasonable extension
of means to market the agricultural
product with less cost in the process
and more profit to the producer. It
proposes to transfer to the farmer the
benefit of the favorable turns of the
market, to enable the producer to sell
at the most advantageous time and to
hold until that time.
The innovation should go some ways
to abolish the alleged sins of the credit
system. The speculative abuses of
which the farmers complain would
come near being deprived of their
reason for being and would flourish no
longer, while the speculation that is
justified by meeting a real need would
not be forbidden.
Farmers are not going to be aided
to help themselves by restrictive ?rid
sumptuary regulations. Secretary
Hoover has the right idea. Forbidding
somebody else isn't going to help the
farmer. Help the farmer by provid
ing him extended facilities is the
proper way.Minneapolis Journal.
The Biggest Obstacle.
The Biggest obstacle to economy and
efficiency in the civil service is not the
politician, but the bureaucrat. Once
blanketed into the permanent govern
ment establishment the bureaucrat,
even though an erstwhile politician,
becomes scornful of politicians and of
everything else representing public
opinion. The professional officehold
er believes th?t the government exists
for the benefit of the bureaucracy. He
is an expert in making two jobs grow
where one grew before, and in making
a half dozen people do the work of
one in devising ihethods of going
around Robin Hood's barn in the trans
action of business. His specialty is
in making unnecessary work and then
insisting that it couldn't possibly be
done with less help. With the disap
pearance of rotation in office the
classified service becomes an ossified
service, and sets itlfelf up as a sepa
rate interest antagonistic to any re
form that would bring about economy
and efficiency by the only feasible
methodthat of cutting out the un
necessary work, dispensing with un
necessary employes, and requiring
those remaining toTearn their salaries.
With the dead wood and dry rot cut
out of the ci\il service, better sal
aries could be paid those remaining on
the payroll with a vast net gain in
efficiency and economy. But the chief
resistance to genuine reform comes
from within and not from without the
civil service, and is inspired not by
spoilsmanship but by bureaucracy.

To have an expensive, highly

your tools and accessories and do

The Economical Wa
Mak Alterations
The cost of making alterationsalterations that are abso-
lutely satisfactoryis surprisingly low with Sheetrock.
For remodeling part of the attic into a children's play room,
a sewing room or an extra bedroom for additions, closets
and partitions for sleeping porches, garages, or for the erec-
tion of a new home or other building, Sheetrock is the stan-
dard wall and ceiling material in unit form.
Made of a sheet of pure gypsum rock, sheathed in a heavy
protective covering, Sheetrock cannot warp, shrink or
buckle. It,is fireproof. And it stubbornly resists both heat
and cold. In other words, Sheetrock walls and ceilings are
permanent they stay put as long as the building stands.
And Sheetrock is easy to put up. It can be easily sawed and
securely nailed to the studs or joists. Also, being uniformly
and permanently even in surface, it takes any decorative
treatment paper, paint, panels. Or it may be used just as
it comes from the factory in its finish of soft mist gray.
