ST. LOUIS. —The American Legion
caucus here unanimously passed the
resolution of Sergeant Jack Sultivan
of Seattle, demanding that congress
deport all alien slackers who surren
dered their citizenship papers rather
than light for this country.
The original resolution was amend
ed to "demand" rather than "ask"
congress for such action. It set forth
that If this country was not good
enough for these men to tight for, "it
was too good for them to live and
prosper in."
The resolution of Maj. Dick Foster,
-Kansas City, demanding that congress
investigate the actions of the war de
partment in dealing with conscien
tious objectors during the war was
also passed unanimously.
Major Foster, before a vote was
taken on the resolution was called
puon to relate experences with con
scientious objectors at Camp Funs
ton. He charged that the war de
partment had nullified the selective
service act at the behest of the rad
ical Socialists, Bolshevik! and I. W-
W. to Include _all who had objections
to doing their part in the war, wheth
er they were members of recognized
religious sects that really had scru
ples against engaging in warfare or
' "These men had no religious scru
ples against warfare. They were
nothing but I. W. IjlY., International
ists, Bolshevlki, anarchists and stack
ers," he said. "Many of them were
tried by court-ma/tlal and convicted.
Seven were sentenced to death. Yet
withft three weeks these men were
nbt only out of the disciplinary bar
racks, bat had been restored to hon
orable duty and given back pay. The
large majority of the others were out
of .prison within two months.
"I need not tell you who is respon
sitSe for that. All of you know."
The resolution d.emanded that con
gress ascertain who Is responsible.
Foster declared that the Bolshe
vlki are now trying to free the few
conscientious objectors remaining in

It's over —and some will go back to the plow,
And some to the sea in ships.
And some will go to the happiness
That was pledged with a woman'* lips.
And some will follow the great white lights.
While others will reap and sow.
But me? I'll carry a pack and gun.
Where the far, hot breezes blow.
So, Ho! for the lad with the glistening plow:
Ho! for the lad with the marriage vow;
Ho! for the lad who builds with steel;
Ho! for the lad where the white lights reel
I'll carry a pack an' gun.
Give me the smell of an old troop ship,
An' the stench o' the bilge below.
Give me the snarl of a maddened sea
In a stiff Nor'easter blow.
Give me the stark of a tropic night
Where the strange folk peer and run.
We have a duty that's never complete —
Me an' my pack an' gun.
So. Ho! for a buddie who sleeps in France;
Ho! for the love in a woman's glance;
Ho! for the flag with her folds unfurled —
She's calling us now from the edge o' th» world.

t The-reply was. "Oh. I fancy it could

happened at home occasionally. A lit

As the commission has shortly to
pass upon and authorze upwards of
$10,000,000 worth of highway con

close acquaintance and actual observ

felt by all members of the commis

Olympia prevent them from giving
constant attention to road building.
Senator Carlyon is making a closer
study even than heretofore of high
way improvement and is understood
to have accompanied the comfnlsslos
at the acting governor's invitation.
