NO. 42 ISSEOICOL REOD , B! CEBIMIEGIOS New Orleans in Gala Attire As Ei-Soldlers Gather to Go to Mat With Problems. New Orleans, Oct. 15. Soldier, sailors ' and marines of , four years ago. members of the American Legion, were gathered here tonight for their fourth annual national convention, which begins tomorrow and continues for five days. It Is a convention which Is sched uled to achieve much business, and shape policies for the future course of the Legion. Last year's American Legion Con vention In Kansas City, with -Marshal Foch, Admiral Earl Beatty of England, General Dial of Italy and General Jacques of Belgium as dis tinguished guests was a combination of pageant and reunion on a gigan tic scale. What the legion's-future policy will be on the bonu; what, if any, criticism will be leveled at the Ad ministration because ot the defeat of the compensation measure in Congress when President Harding's veto was sustained, were outstand ing questions. . Discussion of the programme made in caring for the disabled, the work of the United j States Veterans' Bureau and the part played by Brig. Gen. C. E. Sawyer In connection with hospitali zation were alio scheduled for sharp discussion. It was noticeable that there were many less men wearing their uni forms than has been the case at pre vious conventions. Perhaps a good many of the uniforms are WQrn out after all, It has been nearly four years since the fighting in the Ar gonne and along the Meuse. Another noticeable feature of the convention was the large number of women who came with their soldier relatives to participate in the festiv ities which will accompany the con vention and to attend the conven tion of the American . Legion Auxili ary, the women's organization, which meets at the same time. Summer weather greeted the con vention visitors today, and under a bright sun, palm trees, oleanders and roses gave a tropical touch to the setting. j WARD MARSHALL , A pretty wedding was solemnized! l. ih. 1,inia r,f Ilia lirltla'n nnrnnla.
