PERSHING HUGS AND KISSES WARREN F0NDG00D-BY NEW YORK, Sept. 12. There was a touching scene at the Pennsylvania station today, when Gen eral Pershing bade good by to his son, Warren, fairly smothering the boy when he hugged and kiss ed the youngster. Warren stayed with his two aunts, who were present. The boy is going out West on a ranch while his father winds up final war work in Washington. naval band played "Hail, Hail, the Gansr's All Here!" General Pershinp remained ex pressionless during? Colonel Lea's ad dress, while the latter launched a vigorous appeal for a foreijrn policy for the United States whioh -would "insure safety to our borders and protection to the peopfe of Mexico equally from organired lawlessness and German colonization, even at the cost and sacrifice of policing- and, if necessary, Americanizing- devastated and divided Mexico." Warn Against Politics. In his address at the legion recep tion General Pershing said he was "glad to encourage the American Legion as long as it stands for -true Americanism," as long as it keeps its skirls free and clear from petty politics. , . q -a "And with that understanding." he continued, "I shall be glad to en courage It in every way. The Amer ican Legion should cherish and foster the lessons in patriotism which have beerf brought home to the American people during the last two years. "This organization possesses great advantages for the display and exer cise, of the same patriotism with which its members have been im bued in their service abroad and at home. and. it is the hope of all of us who are interested in the welfare of this organization that you enter it; with the same integrity of purpose with which you conducted yourselves in the war. "Our country is founded on lawb and not on men, and it should be the. purpose of this organization to stand on government by law based upon the principles of the Constitution. I should deplore it if there were any chance of the American Legion be coming a political tool in the hands of political aspirants:" Gratitude for Welcome. Lefore he attended the legion re ception General VP.ershing received informally a 'group . of newspaper men, recalling in the interview that tomorrow is the first anniversary of the start of the great St. Mlhiel irlve . the American array'; first Inde pendent thrust at the neavy German lines.

There were weeks at a tlnio when 'certain boys, in a poor condition, were not given the milk and eggs that they were sup posed to get." Charges Intimidation. Miss Douglas charged physicians in charge of St. Elizabeth's with in timidating certain overseas men who had dared to make .statements in their saner moments setting forth alleged conditions in the institution. One overseas man. Conway by name, was "very bad mentally." she said. After he had issued a statement, she sald. he was called beforo the doc tors, "intimidated and forced to prom ise that in the future he would repudiate his statement and say he was well satisfied with his treatment at St. Elizabeth's. "Were any of you to meet him now and ask him how he was getting along, he would say, 'Fine, I like St. Elizabeth's, they treat us well." " Clte Another Cm. Miss Douglas cited another case where a soldier, practically recovered, was dismissed. He went to his home but returned, for some of his effects that had been left there. In the mean time he had issued a statement mak ing certain charges against the In stitution. The soldier in question was haled before the doctors of the hosp.Ua! when he returned and the doctors "demanded that he retract his state; raent." "They put that -boy through the third degree, and one of the doctors said 'under the circumstances we might- arranges to raake him return here if he does not retract.' "The -doctors have no interest in the inert in uniform." Miss Douglas said the soldiers told her. "They re fer to them as 'riff-raff.' " The committee asked Miss Douglas if she knew of the case of Lee Mas ters, an Alabama soldier who has fig ured in certain disclosures that had previously been made. Tell of Cue. The witness had spent considerable time with the Masters boy. she said, lie has been confined in a ward in charge of an attendant who has twice been charged with being drunk and "who, 1 know, will drink alcohor whenever he can get it." she said. Men have been cruelly beaten in that ward. Miss Douglas said. Masters himself was so badly beaten on one occasion that it was necessary to take several stitches in a cut over an eye. she testified. Masters was in Dunkirk when the Germans were bombing that city with airplanes ad after being brought back to this country he had an obsession that the Germans were after him. Airplanes from Boiling Field, near St. Elizabeth's almost dro- him. mad at times. By careful training. Miss Dpuglas said she and the itiau broth er were almost able to cure him of the delusion. ' "Had he remained in,Cvpres ward, he would have had no hope of be ing cured or' benefitted, ' Miss Dou glas declared. SINN FEIN OFFICES RAIDED SY POLICE DUBLIN. Sept. 12.
