LEGION HEAD SAYS
WAR IS UNLIKELY
U. S. Sentiment Strong in
: Opposition—To Press
The possibility of America getting
Into a war at this time Is "exceed
ingly remote,” Ray Murphy, new na
tional commander of the American
Legion, told reporters here yesterday.
"There Is a unanimous opinion
against it.” he explained.
Murphy, a captain In the World
XVar, approved the President's neu
trality proclamation, and said:
"The Legion's program goes beyond
^nere neutrality, including both ade
quate national defense and the uni
versal draft. If we'd had the uni
versal draft of both man power and
Industries and even our present sys
tem of national defense In 1917. they
would have kept us out of the World
War because Germany would have
weighed the odds heavily before she
decided to go to war with us."
Murphy said the bonus still was
‘‘number one" on the Legion's legis
lative program, but universal draft
,»nd pensions for widows and orphans
of World War veterans also were on
"The Legion bonus bill will be sim
ple," he said. "We will request Im
mediate cash payment—without con
fusing it with any inflation or other
theoriea of finance. Our bill will be
Introduced in the early hours of Con
gress and we hope It will be passed
Questioned on the possibility of
pension demands if the bonus is paid,
Murphy said the Legion had never
gone on record in this respect since
It opposed a pension measure in 1922.
"I can only speak for myself.” he |
added, "and say we will not ask for it
thl* year while I am commander.”
Murphy said he planned a vigorous
drive on communism and that he will
offer the Legion's co-operation to the
American Federation of Labor at At
lantic City today. "We are not worried
about fascism," he added.
The Legion head stopped off here
yesterday en route to the labor con
vention at Atlantic City.

What do the Tigers say about smoking? Here's
Mickey Cochrane, dynamic Tiger manager: "One
thing the team agree on is their choice of ciga

Camels. The Tigers say they can smoke Camels
all they want because Camels are so mild that they
don't get their wind or upset their nerves."
How about taste? Let’s see. Jo-Jo White says:
To me, Camels always taste better.” "Camels have
a fragrance and aroma all their own,” declares
Bill Rogell. "They taste better,” Owen agrees.
And Walker: "Camels never wear out their wel
