Street, Rear, "Buddy Spirit" of Legion Means Victory, Says d'Olier Gear Thinking, Fair Play, Co-operation and Sound Judgment Assure Success of Organization's High Aims, New National Commander Asserts The Tribune publishes every Monday a column devoted to the Ameri? can Legion, its members and their activities. Contrbutions of news items or letters on any subjects of interest to the Legion will be welcomed. They should be addressed to the American Legion Editor, and should reach this office not later than Saturday night. By Franklin d'Olier [Summary of an article written for] "The American Legion Weekly" by the. I new national commander of the order.] Our work ?3 only begun. We have just scratched the surface. The con? structive measures to be accomplished in the coming year are enormous, but it is an inspiration to know that the spirit of clear thinking, fair play, co? operation and sound judgment ? the "buddy spirit"?which prevailed at the convention, merely was a mnnifesta j tion of the spirit that pervades the I Lepion and every member of every ? local post of our great organization. i It is that spirit which assures our I success and leaves not the slightest j doubt in my mind that we shall b able j U accomplish for our country results j as remarkable in peace as they were j in war. The Legion numbers a million men I and women who served their country i in war. The pronouncements of the : convention, which will stand as the i most outspoken concourse in the his tiny of this country, were their senti? ments. It is a reassuring thought in such times as these. I predict that within a year that number will be doubled, and with my co-workers I shall work to give realization to that prediction. The word had been com? ing to headquarters all along for the last few weeks preceding the conven? tion that thousands of ex-service men and women were delaying their deci? sion to join the Legion until they had taken the measure of the organ? ization as it revealed itself at the ; national convention. Patriotism Shown at Convention No liner, bolder revelation of patrio? tism and disinterested Americanism ' ever has been made in time of peace than that which is to lie found in the ] deliberations and recommendations of | the elected representatives of the ? Legion who met in Minneapolis. It . should attract to the ranks o ' the Legion every one of the 4,800,000 who served, ami who served in spirit as ! well as fact. This little thought I now commend to my comrades throughout the land. I subscribe without reservation to every word and act of the Minneapolis ? convention, and I urge upon you to give your deep and thoughtful consid? eration to the work of that great meet? ing. I fear no question of doubt in the heart of any Legionnaire regarding the wisdom and patriotism of the actions | of that convention, yet every man and] woman of the American Legion should inform himself as to what the conven- j tion has done, so that he may better I appreciate the responsibility and honor that has come to his Legion. Seek1*- to Spread Loyalty i It shall be my sole aim, while I oc? cupy the post of trust and responsibil- | ity with which you have honored me, ? to give action to your wishes as ex- I pressed in memorials and resolutions! by your representatives at the conven- j tion. The Americanism Commission of the American Legion, the creation of [ which was recommended to spread and perpetuate the doctrines of 100 per i cent loyalty to flag, government and country, shortly will be brought into being, and adequate provision made for it to carry out the purposes for which it was conceived. Every state and town, every hamlet and fa.?m in the country, shall feel the force of the Legion through this organization. The legislative committee of the Legion at Washington will be instruct? ed to press the desires of the Legion upon Congress and to obtain the enact? ment of laws which will realize the de? mands expressed by the convention. ? These recommendations fall into three general classes: First, those looking toward a better Americanization of the fabric of our society; second, legisla tion designed to benefit those who were di: abled in the service, and, third, leg? islation on the. military policy of the country, dictated by the experiences of the recent war. The wishes of the Le? gion, as expressed by their representa? tives at Minneapolis, will get the im? mediate attention of your legislative commit toe. Praises Woman's Auxiliary I feel also that I should remark on the action of the convention in rccog | nizing the Woman's Auxiliary of the American Legion, to which are eliiiible the wives, mothers, sisters and daugh? ters of Legion members or men who lost their lives in service during the war. This organization has before it a great future, and can be made, and will be made, I know, a worthy helpmeet of the Legion in spreading the voice and will of a better Americanism. A man is known by the enemies he makes, some one has said. The same is true cf an organization. The Legion ?3 known by ils foes. The murder of Legionnaires in the State of Washing? ton at the hands of "Red" radicals of the 1. W. W. type, the news of which shocked the convention on Armistice Day, is a challenge the Legion accepts. We shall not belie the great principles for which we stand by overstepping the bounds of law in dealing with thts type of enemy, but the battle is on and the Legion shall not relent until Amer? ica is purged, hide and hair, of every member of the I. W. W. and Bolshe? vik breed. Legionnaires on Warpath Against All Radicalism An intensive warfare against anarchy, Bolshevism, I. W. W. activity and all other ..forms of disorder seek? ing to wreck the Constitution has been declared by Russell E. Sard, state com? mander of the Legion, who has in? structed all posts in New York to tight the evil. The campaign to be carried into the enemies' quarters consists of the detection of anti-Amorican activi? ties, the appealing to legal authority to correct such conditions and a strong effort to show detected radi? cals that this state no longer is a desirable residence for them. A committee has been named to plan ",nd coordinate the crusade by the ; Legion in this state. Its members are Theodore Roosevelt, Ogden L. Mills, W. R. l'ooley, of Buffalo; Walter Guest Kellogg. of'Ogdensburg; Dr. Henry L. K. Shaw, of Albany, and Freeman C. Allen, of Rochester. Headquarters Moved Two announcements of importance' to Legionnaires were made last week. One is that beginning with December 1 national headquarters will be lo? cated in Indianapolis, in aciord with the decision of the Minneapolis con- i vention. The other is the change of j the New York State Department head? quarters address to 54 Wall Street. Still Growing The prediction that 2,000,000 former service men and women would be mem? bers of the Legion by next fall bids fair to materialize. Since the Minne? apolis convention 225 additional posts have been chartered, making the total in the nation 5,872. Scholarships for Veterans A constructive action has been taken by the president and faculty of the Mount Pleasant Military Academy, at Ossining, N. Y. They have placed at the disposal of Major General O'Ryan four scholarships to be awarded former 27th Division soldiers. The scholar? ships will include tuition, board, quar? ters and laundry, the students being asked to provide only their uniform. One of the four must be a bugler who can teach other cadets. Applicants may communicate with General O'Ryan at Headquarters Division, New York Guard, Room 829, Municipal Building:, this- city. Legionnaires Are Honored Member? of the Legion were guests of honor yesterday nt the Americani? zation concert given by the People's Liberty Chorus at the Hippodrome. County Chairman (?core;?' Brokaw Compton spoke for the veteran? and pledged their cooperation to the au? thorities in the campaign against dis? loyalty. Deegan Is Bronx Chairman William P. Deegan, an active, worker for the Legion since its inception, who has helped in the organization of sev? eral posts in The Bronx, is the newly elected chairman of that county. Wil? bur T. Wright is the vice-chairman, Henry Royco the secretary and Irving G. Davis treasurer. The ci^ht mem? bers of the state committee from Bronx County are Daniel P.

These "Vocal lonals" Content Member? of the Legion post of the Federal board for vocational education students at New York University ex? press their nnproval of the board's j methods in a letter to S. E. Farwell, as follows: I "We want to compliment you for ! cutting the red tape 'and facilitating ! the methods of the men in training. i We wish to go on record as being con ! vinced that your organization is OS i per cent perfect, and we feel sure it will i attain the 100 per cent basis." Robert McC. Marsh Honored State committecinen of the first dis? trict, comprising New York and Bronx counties hnve unanimously chosen Robert McC. Marsh as their repre? sentative on the state executive com? mittee. There are nine districts in the state, represented by nine execu? tive committeemen, who together with the state officers, will administer the affairs of the Legion in the state be? tween meetings of the state committee. Mr. Marsh has been active in the or? ganisation. He was a delegate to the St. Louis caucus in May, fought Ger? man opera in the courts, and at Min? neapolis was a member of the conven? tion's committee on beneficial legisla? tion. He is credited with taking a lending part in drafting the compensa? tion measure. POST BULLETINS Jane A.

Lisbon Seeks Spanish City Fortified Border Town May Be Claimed by Portugal LISBON, Nov. 23. ?Speaking in the Poftugucse Senate yesterday, Ber? nardino Machado, former President, asked what the present government was doing to regain the city of Olivanza for Portugal. He said that, as a result of her efforts during the war, Portugal had the right to ask that the city be restored to her. In replying? the Foreign Minister said the government knew the rights of Portugal in this matter, but added it was a question to be settled in a friendly way between Spain and Portu? gal without the intervention of a third party. Olivenza is a fortified town in Spain about fifteen miles southwest, of Bada? joz, near the Portuguese frontier. In 1811 it was taken by Spain, which has since held it. Spain Honors Latin Republics MADRID, Nov. 23.?A tablet bearing | the names of all the South American i republics was placed yesterday on a I wall in Place Espa?a. It is called "The ! Plaque of the Race." Permanent Force Of 27,467 Asked For Marine Corps Gen. Barnett, in His Annual Report, Urges That Policy of Drawing Officers Froy1 the Ranks Be Continued WASHINGTON, Nov. 23. -A perma? nent enlisted strength of 27,467 men for the Marine Corps, approximately double the pre-war force, is recom mended by Major General Barnett, commandant, in his annual report. Early action by Congress is urged, as delay would mean loss of rank for tem? porary officers who will be retained. Opportunity to qualify for permanent commissions should be given all pres? ent temporary officers eligible 'or transfer, the report said, adding the recommendation that such commissions be made probationary for one year. Attributing much of the success of the Marino Corps in the war to the system of drawing its commissioned personnel from the rank?, the com? mandant said the "highest efficiency" would be served by adherence to this policy, which attracts the highest class of recruits. Asks Increased Pay General Barnett recommended that the present two, three and four year enlistment terms be made permanent as being more attractive than the rigid pre-war term of four years, and asked increase 1 pay for both enlisted men and officers. Great difficulty is being experienced in replacing the temporary enlisted personnel of the aviation section of the corps, now completely demobilized. General Barnett recommended specia' ! grades be provided in order to place the three aviation services on a parity and asked for sixty additional officers for aviation. The report declared the taking of j Blanc Mont Ridge during the war by ? the 2d Division, to which the Marine j brigndo was still attached, was an I "achievement whose brilliancy rivals j the record of the Marines in Belteau Wood." The '"-mmandnnt also paid tribute to the lighting of the marines in the Aisne-Marne offensive of 1918, declar ?ng their early morning surprise at? tack in the Bois de Rit, near Soisaon?, on July if? to have been one of the most brilliant achievement? of the war. Their operations in the St. Mihiel of? fensive, he said, proved the same in? vincible snirit. Casualties were 11,968 Four members of the corps received the Medal of Honor, four the Distin? guished Service Medal and 349 the Distinguished Service Cross, while 1,237 were awarded the French Croix de Cucrre and fifteen the French Le? sion of Honor. Total Marine Corps I casualties in France, the report showed, I were 11.968, with 1.514 killed. The report described operation of I Marine Corps aircraft cooperating with ground troops in Hayti and Santo Do? mingo. A squadron of seven water planes and six land planes now is working with the expeditionary brigade in Hayti, while six land planes are sta? tioned in Santo Domingo. Hunting the guerillas with machine 1 guns and bombs, these planes, the re | port said, are producing an effect of I terror more efficacious in taming the I insurrectionists than any method yet employed. Regular air service between posts is being maintained. The demonstrated value of aircraft in this work has led ?he brigade com? manders in both Hayti and Santo Do? mingo, the report said, to ask for ad? ditional planes and personnel.
