?Call for First Caucus of!
Women's Auxiliaries Is
To Be Issued Soon by
Commander Blakeslee
Governor Edwards of N. J.
Urges Veterans to Ap?
ply for Their Victory
Medals Without Delay
Women auxiliaries of the American
Legion posts o? the New York depart?
ment are growing so rapidly that it is
believed Charles Ci. Blakeslee. depart?
ment commander, will issue, within a
few days, a call for the first caucus
of this important branch of t^hc
veterans' organization.
Not only are new members being ac?
quired by the auxiliaries already or?
ganized but several posts recently an?
nounced the formation of their own
auxiliaries. Miss Kay t.'. Sawyer,
executive secretary of the department,
to wliom Commander Blakeslee as?
signed the important task of perfect?
ing the auxiliary, is awaiting the re?
ceipt of further returns before recom?
mending that the call for a caucus be
It is probable that the caucus will
take place in the latter part of Feb?
ruary, or the early part of March, at
Albany, or some other up-state city,
mid the women relatives of veterans
?re expected to be instrumental in
Mgning up thousands of new members
r'or the Legion itself. It is predicted
by Miss Sawyer that as soon as
dornen relatives of veterans, who do
not belong to the Legion, learn of the
social advantages the auxiliary offers,
they will insist that their men folk
enroll in the Legion. This, she said
yesterday, should help materially in
the organization's membership drive.
Spam Victory Medals
For some reason there is a feeling of
indifference among thousands of war
veterans toward the Victory Medal, the
government's gift in recognition of
their service with the army, navy or
Marine Corps. This apathetic attitude
has caused Governor Edwards, of New
Jersey, to issue a proclamation calling
upon veterans to apply for the medal
without delay.
"The Victory Medal," the Governor
says, "represents valorous service and
? high conception of American citizen?
ship. It bespeaks a nation's gTatitude
for those sel?-sacri?eing ideals which
make a nation great."
He urges all veterans in New Jersey
to assist the War Department in the
distribution of the mementoes.
Sports Boomed in Bay State
A committee, composed of several
noted athlete-veterans in Massachu?
setts, is planning to promote an ath?
letic organization to encourage whole?
some sport among ex-service men. The
m embers of the committee are:
John J. Lane, formerly baseball offi
cial, chairman; Frank Cavanaugh, Bos?
ton College football star; "Tacks"
Hardwick, Harvard athlete; Joseph F.
I on way, vice-president of the National
A. A. L\; Larry Bankart, Yale football
i.>ach; Lawrence Leonard and John
An effort will be made to arrange a
series of tournaments and meets with
teams representing other states.
Name Publicity Officers
Some time ago it was urged by state |
headquarters that posts appoint pub- j
Iicity ofhcer3 immediately, attention
being called at that time to the im?
portance of that office, particularly as
it has to do with the membership drive
this month.
To date only ten or twelve of the
more than 930 posts of the state have
made such appointments and forwarded
the names of these officers to state
headquarters. The result is that the
state publicity committee, which had
planned to do productive work during
L the membership campaign, is unor?
ganized and cannot function as it
| should.
Post commanders are urged to ap?
point these publicity officers without
ielay, or to have them elected. News of
: the activities of your posts, Commander
I Blakeslee points out, cannot be dis?
seminated unless your cwn publicity
! officer does it for you. There will be a
! meeting of the post publicity officers
. of greater New York as soon as the
post? taice action on this all-important
Bronx Memorial Assured
All the obstacles confronting the
* Bronx County memorial committee
j have been overcome finally, and that
, borough is assured of one of the most
1 impressive war memorials in the
l country.
When this committee, of which Dan
j iel P. Sullivan, of 2673 Marion Avenue,
| is chairman, first announced its plan
to place memorial plaques bearing
; the names of soldiers of the Bronx who
! had died in the war on each of the
1 trees along the Grand Concourse, the
'? project met with decided opposition
: from certain groups. The committee,
' however, did not despair, and succeded
?? in having tho Board of Aldermen ap
I propriate sufficient funds to pay for
the tree guards. This left the payment
i for the plaques to the Bronx County
Legion, and they have assumed this
; obligation.
Thus the Legionnaires are themselves
i paying for a memorial to their com
: rades, despite the fact that a fund of
$14,000 contributed by citizens remains
! untouched in th^ hands of a citizens'
| committee in that borough. Chairman
; Sullivan and John A. Greene, registrar
! of the committee, are compiling an au?
thentic list of the fatalities and the
p.aques will be struck off without de
| lay. It is planned to dedicate this great
memorial of more than 1,400 trees, each
a living symbol of sacrifice, on Meraor
, ial Day.
In order to expedite action on the
1 Federal adjusted compensation meas?
ure, now before the Senate Finance
Committee, it is likely that a referen?
dum will be taken among members of
? the Legion throughout the country. It
; will be taken to determine which of
I the four plans for compensation the
i members will claim, so that the Senate
may get an idea of what the cost is to
be to the government.
Oregon's state committee has passed
a resolution favoring legislation to
prevent land holdings by Orientals in
that state.
Pindale, Wyoming, claims a Legion
post further from a railway than any
other in the United States. It is 110
miles from the nearest railroad and j
has thirty-five members, and represents !
600 square miles of territory.
Of 200 cases handled by the war risk
officer of the Norfolk, Va., Post last
year, a great majority were settled
successfully. Compensation was al- '
lowed in sixty-three out of sixty-six
claims, and $446,000 worth of insur- |
ancc was reinstated. i

Holt and Nearing
Debate the League i
At Cooper Union
Editor of the Independent
Discovers That 90 P. C.
of Audience Never Read
Peace Treaty or Covenant
The question whether the United
States should enter the League of
Nations was debated yesterday at
Cooper Union by Hamilton Holt, editor
of The Independent, and Professor
i Scott Nearing, of the Rand School.
Dr. Paul Kellogg, editor of The Survey,
was chairman of the meeting, which
was under the auspices of the Bronx
I Community Foram. About five hundred
persons attended.
Mr. Holt advocated the entrance of
j the United States into the league as
| now constituted, on the ground that it
I held more hope for world peace and
justice than anything else proposed.
Professor Nearing took the positior
j that there was no use trying to estab?
lish peace and justice until the capital
: istic order was changed and, therefore
! the United States should not bothei
i about the league.
After ascertaining by a hands-ui
rote that 90 per cent of his audienc?
had not read the peace treaty or th?
league covenant, Mr. Holt opened th
debate by stating the provisions of th
covenant, explaining it as "nothing: bu
a scheme by which sovereign nation
could act together unanimously bette
! than they could otherwise." He sai
that by providing such economic pr?s- : :
sure as would have prevented the late j
war with Germany the league had mod- I
ernized international law, heretofore',
advanced no further than law within
the state in the tenth century.
Professor Nearing held, on the other
hand, that the league was not at ail
up to date, having the conservatism of
the Congress of Vienna and being un- ?
workable as an organism of class gov?
ernments in a time ripe for a federation I
of peoples. He argued that recent
ieague meetings in Geneva did not con?
sider Russia, which he called the "one
great hope," or consider the "turmoil
of the world," and said the league func?
tioned as a combination of Great
Britain, France, Italy, Japan and Bel?
gium, dominating thirty-six smaller na?
tions in secret conference, "not daring
to let the world know their infamy."
"We were invited in," he said, "be
? cause we can do what the other great
i robber nations have done. We have
our Hayti, Porto Rico and Philippines,
1 and are of the great robber nations
j gone out to curse the world with their
j civilization, as they call it.
"Wu will havo wars until there is
! some measure of economic justice in
Kurope. The only way for other na
; tions to guarantee peace and justice is
i to follow the example of Russia."
Mr. Holt concluded by pointing to
? concrete things the league had accom
j pushed and declaring it essential to
? begin with the nations as they were?
take one step at a time and not expect
; immediately to end all evils and bring
I in all good.

United States Government Bonds
NOTHING IS SAFER. In the case of persons with incomes subject to heavy surtax, nothing is more attractive, considering safety and yield, than the tax exempt issues.
They MAY temporarily sell lower, but are NOW VERY CHEAP. They will eventually sell at much higher prices. They yield from 4 per cent to 6Y2 per cent.
We make a specialty of these Bonds. We keep a supply on hand for immediate delivery. We shall be glad to explain the merits of the different issues upon application.
From 1914 through 1918 the world,
from a financial point of view, SPENT its
savings and "WASTED" its labor. Dur?
ing and after the war there was great
INFLATION and undue extravagance.
The relations .between the nations were
broken and have not yet been readjusted.
In this country there was an orgy of waste
and extravagance.
The inevitable results have followed.
Price bubbles have burst. Such com?
modities as sugar, coffee, rubber, copper,
cotton and wool have shrunk more than
one-half. Borrowers have been forced to
sell. "Rich" people, to protect their busi?
ness, have had to sell their securities.
Prices of securities have shrunk from
25% to 50%.
BUT most of the inflation is "out."
The nations of the world will undoubted?
ly, before many months, readjust their
relations. Necessity is compelling econ?
omy instead of extravagance. Expansion
has ceased. The time to buy is when
other people must sell, for then the buyer
best serves himself and the community.
Owing to "Forced Liquidation," Gov?
ernment bonds, municipal bonds and
other sound securities are selling at
below normal values; and we be?
