As is always the ease in an organ ization of this kind, the matter of collecting dues is a problem to the officers entrusted with that duty. The fiscal year for this post formerly began on June Ist and upon payment of dues membershiv cards were issued, good until June Ist. 1920. but by a ruling adopted at the na tional convention, the fiscal year for jeach local post was made coincident with the calendar year. Also an as- sessment of $1 was levied on each member or the support of the Amer ican Legion Weekly. On January 1. 1920, this post remitted $320 to the | weekly to cover the subscription of each active member as of that date, and at the same time raised the dues for 1920 to $3, which included his subscription to the weekly. If you hold a membership card in this post ' showing you to be in good standing until June Ist you are entitled to credit on this year's dues for 50 cents. Make an effort to send your remit i tances to Finance Officer Raymond i Dalton at an early date or bring them with you to Thursday evening's meet ing. The 1/Cgion Weekly. Are you receiving the American Legion Weekly? Every man who was a member of this post on January 1, ■ 1920, was placed on the subscription list of that publication. The Weekly I lias been reorganized and in its new form is now ocming regularly. If you are not receiving your copy, send I in your name and address to the Com mander, and your case will receive prompt attention. War Risk Insurance.
