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
(Continued from First Page.)
I found the potatoes only half cooked,
the oatmeal was sour, and I have
tasted tainted meat that was given to
those boys to cat. 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;
"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.
