CLEVELAND, Sept. 26.?This is the
eve,of the second annual convention of
the American Legion, and to say that
Cleveland has done herself proud in her
reception to the stalwart veterans of a
great fighting machine is mild praise.
More than 10,000 legionnaires are bil?
leted ih the convention city and twenty
of the Congressional Medal of Honor
raen, winners of the most coveted dec?
oration for valor within the gift of
the American people, are amone them.
It is difficult to say just what the
convention will bring forth in the mat?
ter of new legislation and new policies,
but it is plain that an insurgent move
?aent is on foot among a great number
of the mor? than one thousand dele?
gates which will preclude any possi?
bility of a "machine administration"
being chosen for the new year.
New Yorkers Arrive
The New York delegation reached
Cltveland this morning, seventy-eight
ltrong, and found that one candidate
for national commander was being
pushed vigorously by the Illinois dele?
gation. He is Milton G. Foreman, Illi?
nois past department command??, and
his followers take his election to the
high office for granted.
The New York delegation, under the
leadership of Past State Commander
Wade H, Hayes, i3 the strongest of any
state, and has not committed itself on
astional officers. However, it is certain
that the New Yorkers will not approve
any politics in the organization. Any
effprt by the other states tp "railroad"
a candidate through will meet with
opposition.
Hanford MacNider, of Mason City,
Iowa, carries most of the favor of the
New Yorkers in the race for national
commander. H?3 letter to the Wall
Street interests recently, in which he
rebuked them for their attitude toward
beneficial legislation for veterans, has
won him a host of friends. They point
out that he is a banker and has in?
curred the animosity of his associates
in declaring himself on the principle.
He is a war hero, having won nine
citations and is known as a two-handed
"man's man."
Strong in South and W?est
The weight MacNider carries in the
South and West probably will make him
a keen contende?,
As for the legion's attitude toward
the bonus, there is no possibility that
it will be changed. A survey of the
delegates to-day showed that they stand
ten to one in favor of the additional
compensation.
The vice-commanders probably will
be ylected in a different manner from
thafof lest year. It is proposed that the
country be divided into five districts
?nd that a vice-commander be chosen
for each. One district would comprise
New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania
and the New England states. No can?
didate has yet appeared for this office
in the New York zone, and none will
be selected until the New York dele
frates*? caucus to-morrow morning.
At the caucus of New Yorkers this
morning it was decided that in all
toting the unit rule would be adopted,
provided that two-thirds of the dele
{?ates agreed on any issue. Haye3 was
elected as permanent delegation chair?
man and Miss Ray Sawyer executive
secretary of the State of New York,
??cretary.
Will Study Candidates
It is safe to say that so far as New
York's tttitude toward new officers is
eoneerned the delegation might be
"from Missouri." It demands to be
?hown the merits and abilities of the
candidates and will not support any
legionnaire in whom it has not the
fullest confidence.
Irwin Ira Rackoff, of the Murray Hill
Post, still has the honor of being the
most diminutive member of the Legion.
His four feet ten of stature obscures
him until he starts to talk.
Ohio State Department Commander
J. R. (Go Get 'Em) McQuigg, who will
be grand marshal of the parade to
morrow afternoon, announced to-night
that more than 20,000 veterans and
sixty band3 would be in the line. The
streets of Cleveland have been deco?
rated from curb to curb and their com?
rades and storekeepers have placarded
their buildings with "welcome" signs, j
One of the features of the parade is
to be in the delegation of Washington
State. Their department commander,
Thomas N. Swale, will carry the flag
which was fired upon by radicals dur- '
ing the armistice day parade nt Cen
tralia. Wash., last year, when four
Legionnaires were killed.
Problems on Credentials
When the next convention is called
? to order there will be some question ai;
to the exact number of delegates. It
will be between 1,047 and 1,105. The
credentials committee is to decide
whether representation shall be on the
basis of five delegates at large and one
additional delegate for each 1,000 paid
up members or an additional delegate
for each 1,000 members or fraction,
thereof. The right of certain Legion
units in foreign countries to repre?
sentation also will come up.
One of the distinguished delegates
is Lieutenant Colonel M. W. Wood, the
only man in the United States eligible
to membership in both the ?. A. R. and
the American Legion. He is seventy-five
years old, and was born in Watertown,
N. Y., in 1846. Serving throughout the
Civil War he was twice wounded at
Petersburg, in 1S65, when a private in
the I86th New York. During the
World War Colonel Wood served at
Boise, Idaho, with the medical corps.
He is a Legion post commander, and
despite his years is one of the most
ardent delegates in Cleveland.
Junior Legion Proposed
One of the constructive resolutions
which will be presented is that spon?
sored by Earl G. Stim3on, of Washing?
ton state. It provides for the organi?
zation, under Legion supervision, of a
junior American Legion, to be com?
posed of all the boys and the girls of
America, in an effort to instill patriot?
ism and good citizenship. An emblem
has been designed, which resembles
greatly that worn by Legionnaires.
Another resolution will demand of
the War Department the immediate
publication of the "slacker list," which
contains the names of more than 300,
i 000 draft dodgers and deserters.
An interesting fight is promised
when the question of radicals is brought
up. The issue is whether the Legion
shall indorse an educational campaign
or urge deportation of the disloyal.
The former plan has many backers.
Labor Question Up
Because of frequent disputes be
! twecn the Legion and organized labor
' there will be a strong effort to compel
the Legion to take a definite stand,
' The New Jersey delegation, profiting
i by its experience during the recent in
; surgent railroad strike, is determined
' to learn definitely just what is to be
? done in the future. The Beraardsville
? N. J., post was denied its charter foi
! months because some of its members
i fired trains during the walk-out.
Disciplinary measures are to be taker
? in regard to posts which have defied
' rulings of the ^national organization
! refused to abide by the majority's sen
! timent on vital issues, and in aom
j cases opposed their own organization
It is more than probable that legisla?
tion will provide for the revocation of
the charters of such units.
French war orphans are to profit ma?
terially if plans are carried out. It is
proposed that the Legion tak steps to
care for thousands of French young?
sters, the funds to be raised by enter?
tainments. One of the affairs planned
is an A. E. F. peace-time boxing tourna?
ment, with army and navy stars ap?
pearing, in Madison Square Garden,
New Yorli^under the direction of "Tex"
Rickard. It is said that Ilickard has
agreed to cooperate.
It is certain that the resolutions
committee will be overburdened with
resolutions when it id named to-mor?
row. Nearly every state delegation has :
a veritable bale to offer, and some of
them are "loaded with dynamite."
The legionnaires are "rarin' to go." j

The Tribune Fresh Air Fund
Only $843.75 Needed to Meet Vacation Deficit
The Tribune Fresh Air Fund's deficit
on the work of the summer of 1920 has
been reduced to 5843.75. During the
last week contributions amounting to
$392.50 have been received, most of
them from friends of the Fund's work,
who have been away from the city dur?
ing the summer, but who made haste
to forward their annual gifts as soon
as they got back to town.
The Fund still needs $843.75 to pay
off the last bills incurred for the va?
cations of the boys and girls who en?
joyed its hospitality during June, July,
August and September. Almost all of
the vacations are finished now, but a
contributor who sends his gift now to
help make up the deficit will have done
just ac much toward providing for the
happiness of the youngsters as one
who contributed while the vacations
were in full swing.
The Fund bespeaks the generosity of
its friends in meeting the bills out?
standing.

Jews Honor Memory
Of Rabbi Slain by
Ukraine Bolsheviki
Many Notable New York Men
Eulogize Bernard Cantor
at Meeting in the Free
Synagogue, Carnegie Hall
?Tews prominent in the affairs of New
York at the Free Synagogue, in Car?
negie Hall, yesterday morning paid
tribute to the memory of Rabbi Ber?
nard Cantor, who was slain by Bolshe?
vik soldiers on July 5, while doing re?
lief work in the Ukraine.
The morning program had been set
aside as a memorial to the rabbi.
Among those who euiogized him were
Judge Abram I. Elkus, of the Court of
Appeals, president of the Free Syna?
gogue; Rabbi Stephen S. Wise, Captain
Elkan Voorsanger, of the joint distribu?
tion committee, with which Rabbi Can?
tor was affiliated at the time of his
death, and Miss Irnyi May, of Lemberg,
Galicia, who was the fiancee of the
martyred rabbi.
It was announced that the executive
council of the synagogue had voted to
call the religious school of the down?
town branch of the Free Synagogue
the Bernard Cantor School of the Free
Synagogue and had founded the Bernard
Cantor fellowship, choosing Nathaniel
Cantor, a brother of Rabbi Cantor, as
its first recipient. Nathaniel Cantor is :
a student at the Hebrew Union College,
Cincinnati.
It also was announced that a me?
morial volume, containing a biography
of Rabbi Cantor and the various trib- j
utes which have been paid to his char?
acter, would be published. '
Judge Elkus said that Bernard Cantor|
riot only had served the congregation of
the Free Synagogue well, but he had
served well all Israel. Both Judge i
Elkus and Rabbi Wise halted for a I
moment in their praise of Rabbi Cantor*
to make a few remarks laudatory of the :
character of Jacob Schiff, whose unex
petted death occurred Saturday.
64 Rhodes Scholars

the annual election of Rhodes scholars
to represent the United States at the
University of Oxford were announced
to-day by Professor Frank Aydeclotte.
of the Massachusetts Institute of
Technology, American secretary of the
Rhodes trustees. The quota for the

those elected as for 1921 will go in
October of that year to bring the ap?
pointments back to the regular sched-,
ule. Next year the quota for the'
United States will be thirty-two, and
two-thirds of the states will elect one
man each, while those which this year
made two appointments will have no
election.

Yesterday Anniversary
Of Wilson's Break-Down
Last Speech on Western Tour
Delivered at Pueblo a
Year Ago Saturday
From The Tribune's Washington Burea?
WASHINGTON, Sept. 26.-?One year
ago to-day President Wilson was com?
pelled to give up his speaking tour of
the West and return to Washington a
very sieR man.
He made -nis last speech on the
League of Nations at Pueblo, Col.,
one year ago yesterday. During the
early hours of the following morning
it was definitely decided by Dr. Cary T.
Grayson, in consultation with Mrs.
Wilson and Secretary Tumulty, that
Mr. Wilson could not go on with his
tour.
Instead, the President's train started
back to Washington. The President
reached Washington September 28 and
for several days he was able to take
automobie rides about the city. The
climax came, however, on October 1,
when Dr. Grayson ordered the patient
to bed and called in consultants to
care for the Executive.
To-dav, just a year from the outset
of the President's puzzling illness, Mr.
Wilson is still unable to appear in pub?
lic except while riding, although he is
reported to be progressing gradually
toward a state of health that will per?
mit him to take an active interest in
the campaign.

Salute to Fayolle Wasted
As Fog Holds Up Liner
Guns of Fort Jay Will Repeat
Honors To-day When French
General Conies Ashore
General Marie Emile Fayolle, famous
strategist of the French army, who has
been designated by France as envoy to
the convention of the American Legion
in Cleveland, received a salute from
the guns of Governor's Island last
night which he probably didn't hear.
Arrangements were made yesterday
to take the distinguished officer from
the French liner La Savoie at Quaran?
tine and lnnd him at the Battery from
an army tug.
When the fog pall lifted late yester?
day afternoon the tug went down the
bay with Lieutenant General Robert
Lee Bullard, commander of the De?
partment of the East, who was to re?
ceive General Fayolle and escort him
ashore.
La Savoie, however, was caught in
the mist that had only partly lifted,
and sought an anchorage off Sandy
Hook. The tug, with General Bullard
aboard, returned without its distin?
guished visitor, but this was not known
by the squad who manned the saluting
guns at Fort .lay. The guns which
belched forth as the tug came abeam
of the fort will repeat the salute to?
day when General Fayolle is escorted
up the bay.
Anchored off the Hook with La
Savoie are the American liner Phila?
delphia from Southampton, and the
Swedish steamship Drottningholm,
from Gothenburg.

Schiffs Death
Brings Gloom
To East Side
In Charitable Institutions
He Had Aided and in
Synagogues Prayers Are
Said for Late Banker
-#?
Wilson Condoles Family
Funeral Will Take Place
at 10 A. M. To-morrow at
the Temple Emanu - El
His people mouriied for Jacob H.
Schiff yesterday. The whole East Side
was plunged in gloom. Charitable in?
stitutions which he had helped to
found <y support were in mourning. In
them and in the synagogues there were
prayers for the leader of the Jews who
had passed away.
Nor was it his own people alone who
grieved at the passing of a great man.
From all parts of the country and
?from men of all faiths came messages
of condolence to his family who gath?
ered at his late home, 965 Fifth Ave?
nue. One of them was from President
Wilson, who said that the nation had
lost "one of its most useful'citizens."
So widespread and so sincere is the
grief that it is expected that thous?
ands of persons, unable to obtain cards
of admission, will seek in vain to en?
ter Temple Emanu-El, 521 Fifth Ave?
nue, for the funeral sen-ices to-mor?
row. They will be held at 10 a. m.
Temple Will Seat 2,000
The edifice seats 2,000. Cards of
admission will be distributed until 3
p. m. to-day, unless they are exhausted
sooner, at 52 William Street. All ap
licants will be told that there will be
no admission to the temple without
cards, but it will bo impossible to get
this information to the sorrowing
thousands of the East Side, it is
thought, forcibly enough to impress
them with its finality.
Pushcart men packed up their wares
and trundled their shops to th? yard
on learning the news. The death of
Jacob Schiff was the chief topic of
conversation from the Bowery to the
East River and wherever Jews were
assembled. Flags on all East Side in?
stitutions were at half-staff in honor
of his memory?
Ten thousand placards inscribed in
Yiddish and in English, "The East Side
Mourns the Loss of Jacob H. Schiff,"
will be distributed by Jewish merchants
today for display wherever shops are
closed in his memory or homes are
mourning.
Aged Hebrews Murmur Prayer
Three hundred and fifty venerable
Hebrews, some of whom are said to be
100 years of age or more and some of
them men who were friends of the
financier-philanthropist in the days
when he, like them, was struggling for
a bare livelihood, murmured the prayer
for the dead yesterday in a home for
aged Jews at 167th Street and Finley
Avenue, the Rronx. Tears rolled down
their seamed faces, and as they left
the assembly hall they rent their gar?
ments. Six "weeks ago their old friend
had visited them there in the home,
and when he had gone they learned
that he had left a check, which was one
of a series of gifts which they had re?
ceived from him.
The message which President Wilson
sent to Mrs. Schiff follows: "May I
not extend to you my heartiest sympa?
thy on the dea"th of your distinguished
husband? By his death the nation
has lost one of"its most useful citizens."
Friend of All Creeds
David Robinson, president of the
Downtown League, sent this message:
-The Downtown League expresses its
sorrow at the loss of our most estima?
ble and useful citizen?a noble char?
acter and friend of all creeds."
The Grover Cleveland Association of
New York, of which Mr. Schiff was a
member, sent this message: "The
Grover Cleveland Association of New
York sends its sincerest sympathy in
your bereavement and mourns the loss
of a great citizen, an example to all
American?!."
John L. Bernstein, president of the
Hebre r Sheltering and Immigrant Aid
Society, whose building Mr. Schiff re?
lieved of a $50,000 mortgage and to
which he gave the Astor Library, wrote:
"We grieve with you ,or the great
leader in Israel, whose voica no more
will be heard."
The Educational Alliance on East
Broadway, which Mr. Schiff helped to
found, will hold a special meeting in
Temple Emanu-El to pass resolutions
upon his death. Its directors and
those of a dozen other institutions in
which Mr. Schiff was interested, will
attend the funeral.
Gave Succor to the Deaf
"In the death of Jacob H. Schiff this
institution has suffered a wholly irre?
parable loss," Fflix H. Levy said, as
president of the Institution for the Im?
proved Instruction of Deaf Mutes. "In
our work of educating poor deaf chil?
dren of the Jewish faith Mr. Schiff
was facile princeps among philanthro?
pists who have aided in the further?
ance of our efforts. For a full quarter
of a century he gave unstintedly of his
substance and of his ripened wisdom
to alleviating the affliction of our
wards."
"The Independent Order B'rith Aba
ham learns with deep sorrow and regret
of the death of Jacob II. Schiff,1' in
the message of Gustave Hartman, grand
master, arid Max L. Hollander, grand
secretary, of the largest Jewish na?
tional fraternal organization in the
world.
"America has lost one of its best
sons, humanity its champion and de?
fender. Ever ready to stand up for the
i rights of Israel and the cause of Juda?
ism in every part of the world, ever
generous in heart and deed toward the
| poor, the unfortunate and the afflicted
of all the peoples of the earth, he
I leaves behind a rich heritage of un
j selfish devotion to the interest of the
I lowly and the oppressed and of whole
| hearted service in behalf of his peo
I pie."
| "The life and achievements of this
I immigrant boy of the nineteenth cen?
tury are a convincing reply to those
who would keep the immigrant from
our shores," said Manny Strauss, of
the Union of American Hebrew Congre?
gations.
The Joint Distribution Committee of
the American Fund for Jewish War
Sufferers adopted a resolution con?
cluding: "The example of his noble and
unselfish life must inspire us all to
of those who. without the help we can !
give them, will die of starvation, pri- .
vation and disease." ? ?
Tribute from Judge Rosalsky
"In the Ghetto and in palaces to-day
there is mourning," Judge Otto A.
Rosalsky said, as chairman of the
Greater New York Fund for Jewish
War Sufferers. "Suffering Jews of
Eastern and Central Europe have loet
a sympathetic friend and the Ameri?
can relief movements for aid to the
Jews abroad mourn the departure of
an ardent and liberal worker."
"The first decade of the Twentieth
Century will be remembered by the
Jews of this country as the Schiff era
of American philanthropy," said Ar?
thur Lehman, chairman of the Busi?
ness Men's Council of the Federation
for the Support of Jewish Philan?
thropic Societies. ,
Dr. Joseph Silverman called Schiff
"an engineer of philanthropy," and Dr.
Samuel Schulman declared: "He was
clear in his thoughts that the Jew in
this country should glory in his Ameri?
can nationality. In my opinion he was
the most representative Jew in this
country."
Dr. Silverman. as rabbi of Temple
Emanu-EI. and Dr. Schulman, rabbi of
Temple Beth-El, will conduct the fu?
neral services, which will constat o*f
prayers, reading from the Psalms and
music by the Temple Eman?-E! choir.
Interment will be in Salem Fields,
Cypress Hills, Brooklyn.
