"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.

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
Olivenza is a fortified town in Spain
about fifteen miles southwest, of Bada?

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
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.
