Weeks, director of state institutions. The contemporary certainly is getting in on the ground floor so far as time is concerned. Most of ns haven't projected our minds bevond the present session of the f legislature, polit ically. One can't help wondering, how ever, how this nominating of Judge Weeks appeals to the august gentleman who pre sides over the deliberations of the senate as Weeks; he is credited, rightly or wrongly, with . an ambition to become governor.

Approximately four hundred dele gates froiidU parts of Minnesota at tended the first state convention of the women' auxiliary of the American Legion In Minneapolis. The rr e e 1 1 n g marked the begin ning of the na tional organiza tion of the auxil iary, which is ex pected ultimately to bind together about ten million women, the mothers, wives, sisters and daughters of for mer service men of the World war. The delegates at the Minnesota con ference represented about 6,000 J.iem bers of th 113 units of the auxiliary in that state. Tbe convention adopted a state con stitution modeled after the tentative constitution previously used by auxil iary units, and voted to "dedicate themselves to the cardinal principles of the Legion." Officers elected were: Dr. Helen Hielscher, president; Mrs. E. A. Lew Is, first vice president, Mrs. Myrtle Getz, second vice president; Mrs. O. B. Ie Laurier. historian ; Mrs. George H. Barber, representative on the na tional executive committee. Miss Pauline Curnlck, representing: the organization division of national headquarters, addressed the conven tion, outlining: the plans and alms of tbe organization. Knnsas members of the women's mixiliaiy will hold their state conven tion January 10 and 11, and other states are expected to take similar action in the near future. WARSAW, POLAND, HAS POST All Members Are ExService Men New on Duty With the American Red Cross. A post of the 'American Legion.with 40 members has been formed ln .War saw, Poland. All the members are ex service men who are now on duty with the American Red Cross. The post was organized by Charles Phillips of Xew Richmond. Wis., head of the pub licity department of the Red Cross ln Warsaw, and has the following offi cers : II. H. Hall of McDonald, Pa., commander; Lee D. Rowe of McAllen, Tex., adjutant; Frank R. McKennay of Richmond, Me., treasurer. Commander Hall, who served In France with the Three Hundred and Seventh supply train, Is chief of stores for the Red Cross In Poland. Rowe, who was in the medical detachment of medical supply train No. 412 ln Franco, went to Poland a year ago with the United States army typhus expedi tion. . -i : Posts of the Legion also are now being formed in - Jerusalem, Palestine and in Peking, Cfhlna. MOST POPULAR AT CARNIVAL Marie BaJzarinl Carries Off Honors at Contest Conducted by "Windsor v Terrace Pest,. Brooklyn. Miss Marie Ballzarlnl of Brooklyn, N. Y was,' voted the most popular girl in a contest held during a week's carnival of 'Windsor Terrace post of the Amer ican Legion. The popularity con test,' which Is be coming a favor ite pastime among Eastern posts of the American Le gion, has been the means of boost ing tfie financial standing of several posts as well as affording amusement for the members and their friends. NO TIME FOR "BLUE LAWS" Indications Are That Legion Nationar Officers Will. Not Take "Posi tive Stand." j "Blue law" agitation. Is apparently obnoxious to a large number of mem bers of the American Legion,' accord ing to expressions of opinion received In letters at national headquarters. National officers have been called upon to take a "positive stand," particularly against those who would do away with the cigarette. : . "As individual citizens and voters our membership can support or oppose what It sees fit, said one national of ficer of the Legion, "so long as they conform to our national constitution. I think the veteran, however. Is against intolerance. The national organization of the Legion has no time for this con troversy, however.

Five bills are being pressed by the legislative committee of the American Legion tt the present session of con gress. Foremost among those iu pub lic interest is the Fordney bill! that pro vides adjusted compensation for all ex service men, but more important in the eyesof Legion men are the Watson bill, the Rogers bill, the Stevenson bill and'ti sundry appropriation bill allow ing' $10,000,000 for hospital construc tion. -. . . ; , The Fordney, or "bonus' bill, passed the holise in the last days of the last session'; of the Sixty-sixth congress It then was referred to the senate finance committee, of which Senator Boies Penrose of Pennsylvania' is chairman. Assurances were given that early hear ings would be held on the bill. The;Fordney bill, as it stands now, provides a cash payment for all vet erans up to and including the grade of captain, of one dollar a day for each day of home service, and $1.23 a day for foreign service, with a limit of $500 and $025, respectively. Or, the option of the same amount, .plus 40 per cent if taken in the form of government cer tificates, assistance in '.the purchase of a home or farm or vocational training. The Fordney bill, however, will be subordinated to the other four pet Legion measures, all of which aim at the improvement of the condition of the disabled." In this the legislative committee (is following the mandate of the second national Legion conven tion, which went on record that "mat ters for the benefit of the sick and dis abled are of first importance and are to be given preference over all oth er legislation affecting the welfare of the service men." The AVason bill provides for 14 re gional brauches of the bureau of war risk insurance, as many sub-offices as may be necessary, and would make it possible for ex-service men to pay their government Insurance premiums at any post office. It relieves from the payment of premiums disabled men in hospitals or taking vocational train ing and men temporarily disabled. It extends the time in which ex-service men may apply for hospitalization. It Is a bill that would Improve the effi ciency of the war risk bureau and would give justice to the disabled. The Watson bill passed the house unani mously at the last session. It then was referred to a sub-committee of the senate finance committee. The Rogers1 bill represents the efforts of the American Legion to obtain co operation between the bureaus func tioning for the benefit of disabled ex service men. It provides for the trans fer of the rehabilitation section of the federal board of vocational training and of the public health service to the jurisdiction of the war risk bureau. The plan is' to have all the bureaus un der one directing and responsible head, preferably a new cabinet officer. The Stevenson bill would establish the same privilege of retirement for disabled officers of the emergency forces as is now enjoyed by officers of the regular army, a privilege already accorded by congress to emergency of ficers of the navy. WELL KNOWN TO LEGION MEN Gilbert Bettman, Chairman of the Na tional Legislative Committee of the American Legion. Gilbert Bettman, who was recently appointed chairman of the national legislative . .com mittee of the American Legion, Is 'well known to m a'n y Legion members because he helped to draft the four-fold op tional plan of ad justed compensa tion and, with Scrug-natlon- stA i ,,am new n. wJa V. i al vice co command- 'HV presented it before the ways and means committee of the house of rep resentatives.
