Blacker, in his escape from Canada to
Germany, according to Lemuel Bolles,
.national adjutant of the Legion, who

cerned in thnt Bergdoll Is alleged to
have obtained bis passport In Winni
peg by using i in American Legion but
ton and the army discharge papers of
a Legionnaire. ,
Mr. Bolles has appealed to the De
partment of Justice, to. ascertain the
facts in the ciim and proposes. If the
report Is true, to see that the man
Is apprehended, expelled from the Le
gion and brought to a speedy trial.
Bergdoll has been the target of nu
merous attacks of the American Le
gion. When he "escaped" from prison
a reward of $.TO0 was offered for his
capture and a number of Legion posts
in many parts of the country took
similar action to bring about his cap
ture. One pos,t adopted ' resolutions

release of the two Americans who tried
to recover Bergdoll In Germany. '
