decision of far-reaching Impor
tance as afl'ectlug the participation la
politics of nien holding office In the
American Legion lias Just been bund
ed down by "Robert A. Adams, na
tional Judge advocate of the Legion, in
response to an Inquiry from the Inter
Post Council of Los Angeles, Cal.
At' Its annual election held In De
cember a Los Angeles post elected
Channing Follette as commander for
1921. A short time afterwards Fol
lette was appointed Justice of the
peace 'by the board of supervisors of
"Los Angeles countyM
The question arose whether, In view
of the fact that. ftllette bad been ap
pointed to an ofllce which, in Its na
ture, except In the matter-of filling
vacancies, Is an elective, salaried pub
lic office, he was eligible to serve as
. an officer of the Legion.
'In his ofliclal ruling, the .national
Judge advocate says: '
"Tills being a salaried, elective pub
lie nftlcA If In niv nnlnlnn thflt the
method of filling a'vscancy la not es
sential in determining the eligibility
of a Legionalre. holding' sfeh office.
The ofllce Is elective, although the case
with which we deal Is that of an ap
pointment ... .
"The purpose of the constitutional
piovlslon la of course, to prevent, so
far as possible, the use by a member
of the Legion of his Legion member
ship ,ln furthering a political career.
Consequently, the effect of an ap
pointment Is. In no wise dissimilar
from an election, and It Is my opinion
that the incumbent Is, by the accept
ance of his office, rendered ineligible
for the office of the American Legion "
It is believed that many Legion
" tfeinbers, appointed to political offices
will be affected by this ruling.
