Party Visit Graves of Legion Men Killed Dur. ing City Parade. •The hend of the American Legion Journeyed all the way to Centralla, Wash., to pay homage nt the graves of the four men who were slain by members of tlie I. W. W. Inst Armis tice day. Two hundred Legion. men and women accompanied Franklin D'Oller, their nationnl commander, on his visit to the scene of the tragedy, and stood with bowed heads in Moun tain View cemetery tis he pledged the Legion to everlasting reverence to the memory of its martyred members. There was nothing of rancor in D'Olier's reference to the men who killed the peaceful paradcrs. T\it the speech served warning, ns hundreds of other incidents of Legion history of the lnsl year have served warning, that the Legion is a wall of steel against all advocates of violence, whether they dub themselves "wob blles" or parlor bolshevists. "I come here as to the shrine of the American Legion," sai D'Oller, stand ing nt tlie foot of the grave of Wnr ren Grimm, killed nt the head of the Armistice day parade.

Here, in CentraUa. the spirit of the American Legion likewise met the enemy of our country and tri umphed." As representative of the nearly two million members of the Legion, D'Ol ler laid a wreath of flowers on Grimm's grave. In tlie crowd were Grimm's old friends In Centralla and friends of Dale Hubbard, Ben Cnsagranda and Arthur McElfresh, who also were slaiu. "It Is fitting that here today we should renew our pledge of patriotism and devotion to law and order nnd serve notice on the forces of nnnrchy that more than fonr million ex-service men, who fought nnd defeated the foe without, are now sworn to fight to the death the foe within, who would work Injury to our sacred institutions. Our inspiration shall lie our martyrs and the restraint shown by their outraged comrades. By dedicating ourselves to the defense of our flag nnd all that it means, a defense based on fairness and justice, we shall prove that our comrades In France and Centralla have not died in vain," the commander con cluded.
