The American Legi?n
News: Local, State, National
Movement by Veterans, Who
Do iNot Need the Bonus,
to Give It to Disabled
Is Gaining Popularity
Raymond B. Fosdiek And
Henry L. Stimson Will
Speak at City Club's
Armistiee Day Dinner
War veterans of New York State
who have succeeded in reestablishing
themselves since their return from
military service are to be put to a
test which, if ?net by them with the
saine spirit of generosity that marked
their service to their country, will win
them a host of friends.
The bonus award embodied in
proposition No. 1, carried at the polls
last Tuesday by an overwhelming
plurality, provides that all eligible vet?
erans who feel they do not need the
i xtra compensation of $10 a month for
??ach month of service may contribute
it to a fund Jo be used for the relief
of men and women wounded or dis?
abled during their service.
Henry L. Stimson, former Secretary
of War, a colonel in the field artillery
during the war and now chairman ot
the joint committee for aid to disabled
veterans, has opposed the bonus plan
since its inception. As soon as it car?
ried in the state he communicated with
William F. Deegan, first vice-com?
mander of the state Legion, and called
upon him to use his influence in havinp
veterans not in need contribute theij
bonus to the fund.
Commander Deegan's response was
instant. He notified Mr. Stimson that
he knew of specific cases where mer
who were not wounded or disable?
needed the bonus, but that he woulc
urge all men who did not need it tt
follow the action sucirosted. Thus al
probability of dissension over the ques
- on,was ended. Both the advocates o:
the bonus and its opponents are ir
accord ?is to what shall be done b;
recipients to whom it is not vital
Therefore ?t is up to the veteran1
themselves. What they will do is, o
course, a matter of conjecture, bu
American Legion officials do not hesi
tntc to predict that at Wist one-thin
of the bonus money will cvcntuall;
find its way to the fund.

The Rev. Dr. Herbert Shlpman, rector

? Artillery, in his sermon last night bit
j terly denounced the profiteers of the
j country and a moment later declared
? that he had voted against the soldier
bonus in the recent election.
"I voted against the bonus and I
voted that way because 1 cannot see
how a second wrong can right n first
wrong," he said. "Service cannot be
gauged in terms of money."
He condemned the men who remained
] home and made money while posing as
! patriots. He likened them to greedy
: human vultures and crawling ghouls.

Ellis Inland Congestion
The Salvation Army, with its staff
hand of forty musicians and a male
chorus, provided the entertainment on
Ellis Island yesterday, and more than
live thousand persons, newly arrived

nights all t'ne lodging facilities at
Ellis Island wer? taxed, and several.
hundred immigrants were compelled to

under existing rules there was no way
to avoid it.
The commissioner praised the Sal?
vation Army for the work It accom?
plished during the war.

Elder Won't Return
To Flatbush Church
Until Pastor Is Out
Ran Against Danring Must
Be Observed, Says A. L.
Brenner; Declares He Re?
signed to' Mend Matters
While Dr. Frederick Marsh Gordon
was preaching last night in the Flat
bush Christian Church, at Dorchester
Road and East Fifteenth Street, in
Brooklyn, A. L. Brenner, who had just
resigned as an elder, expressed hope at
his home ;it 637 East Third Street,
Brooklyn, that the congr?gation might
before long once more walk in the ways
When that time came, Mr. Brenner
said, he would be sitting in the con?
gregation, with three other elders who
resigned, but Dr. Gordon would not be
in the pulpit.
Dr. Gordon resigned also. He said
last night he had done so in order to
hecomc regional director of the Disci?
ples of Chric: in the Metropolita?} Dis?
trict. But the ninety days notice he
gave will oblige him to he in the
church every Sunday for more than two
months. No obligation of that sort
iitti ';)"s to the elders' resignations.
Since Dr. Gordon submitted his res?
ignation differences have arisen over
church discipline and, in an attempt
to mend matters* the elders steppe:
out. There had been a reception in
the church for the American Legion
and the young people danced.
Although Dr. Cordon was not pres?
ent and had not authi rized the dance,
th eldci chided him about it. There?
upon Dr. Gordon supported the young
people on ti c ?rround that in prohibit?
ing pastimes generally regarded a:
harmless the church would alienate the
you ng pet pie.
"Dancing is prohibited by church
rules and members of the congregation
have been dancing, unrebuked by their
pastor," .Mr. "Brenner said last night,
lie added that dancing was only one of
many features involved in the church
discinlincvwhich the elders Wanted ob?
served strictly. The other elders are
.1. A. Williamson, J. 0. Andrevett ami
I. L, Cressl.er.
"There is (no iil feeling in the
church," Dr. Cordon said. "This is r.
very small matter. The church is
sound. We pride ourselves on thinking
for ourselves, and every member is a
law unto himself. I think ours is the
most liberal of like denominations."
"Both sides are sorry now," Mr.
Brenner said. "The- whole thing was
.n small difference of opinion over the
type i>i church government. The
elders resigned in an attempt to mend

The Only Remedy
Supply and demand are the dominant factors that regulate prices.
Real Estate ownership is a business which responds to this law.
if the supply of apartments is curtailed rentals go up. i
The Great War materially curtailed the supply by reducing the build
i ing of apartments. 5
1 The two sets of laws rushed through at Albany killed any chance of
; apartment building.
? Any legislation affecting the law of supply and demand will prove a
i boomerang and#defeat its own purpose.
If legislation there must be, let it be constructive.
? Let it encourage the builders, the loaning institutions and the investors
j to the fullest extent.
