"Because of the expense of maintaining

small number completing the courses,
the attetnion of business men, educators
and citizens in general has been
turned to the General Continuation
Parft-Time Class, which if organized
according to the requirements of the
Federal Board for Vocational Education,
received Federal Aid for payment
ot one half of the salaries of all teachers
engaged in this work.
"The requirements of a Federal
Aided General Continuation Part-Time
Class are as follows:
1. This class must provide for not
less than 144 hours instruction per
year, such instruction to bs given
during the hours of employment of boy
and girl between the ages or fourteen
and sixteen'years.
2. Any subject, oral and written

workers over fourteen years of age,

"The qualficatlons of teachers, who
art competent (o undertake this work,
are a good academic education, and a
strong and pleasing personality. Such
teachers should be sufficiently skilled
to be able to make use of practical
experiences of the individual members
of their classes as a basis for teaching
and to show how the fundamental
subjects of reading, writing and arithmetic
and training in citizenship, can
be applied to every day life.
"Concerning the expenses of maintaining
General Continuation PartTime
Classes, it can be sfiid that,
while the local community must assume
the entire expense connected
w*ith the operation of evening classes
suitable for young workers, by organiz
inc General Continuation Part-time
classes, one half of the salaries of
the teachers are paid by the Federal
Government. In considering the number
of young workers reached by this

The national membership drive of
the American Legion to enroll one
million veterans of tne great war in
forty-eight state branches tnroughout
the United States begins today (September
15). It will continue for six
days, through September 20, with Intensive
canvassing in every community
under Legions' slogan, "Let's
Stick Together."
The 4#0,000 members already enrolled
is more than 4,000 local poets of
The American Legion are going afte.
600,000 more. It Is the aim of the national
organization of American veterans
of the war to make the Minneapolis
convention on American Legion
Day, November 11, actually representative
of at least one million of former
service men and women.
In the following statement to the
I I^eeion from National headquarters,
the Joint national committee reaffirms
the aims and ideals which animated
the Legion's founders at Paris
and St. Louis:
"In starting its September drive for
one million members, the American
Legion reaffirms its alms and purposes
which have won the support of more
than 400,000 veterans of the War with
Germany already enrolled in 4,000 local
posts organized by forty-eight
state branches.
"The American Legion is the national
civilian organization of ex-service
men and women. It is non-partisan,
non-political and non-sectional;
knowing no distinctions of rank or service.
Former enlisted men and 'ormer
officers,?former overseas men ana
former national service men'who
served in the United States,?all are
welcome in The American Legion with
"The ideals of The American Legion
I are summarized in the preamble to the
national constitution which was adopted
at Paris in March and at St. Louis
In May and whi*h will be ratified formally
at the first national convention
In Minneapolis on American Legion
Day, November 1th.
"'To uphold and defend the ConstiI
tutlon of the United States of Ameri'
ca.' The basic foundation of American
life by virtue of which American
citizenship is guaranteed to Americans
throughout the world is taken for
granted by the millions who participate
in its benefits and protection.
Yet this same Constitution has been
attacked from without by the Huns and
is being attacked from within by followers
of the red flag . The American
Legion Is pledged to uphold and defend
the plan of government for which
fitty tnousanu Americans gave meir
, lives in France.
" 'To maintain law and order.' Consider
the plight of Russia where Uniyd
States troops are patrolling the Siberian
railroad tracks because there
is no Russian government today worthy
of the name.
"'To foster and perpetuate a one
hundred per cent. Americanism.' The
American Legion demands of its members
that they be heart and soul for
America. It goes further . It demands
that the "fifty-fifty" counterfeit Amer1
icans, many of whom requested and
received exemption from national service
on the ground that they were not
American citizens, decide immediately
whether they intend to become citizens
and perform the duties of citizenship
or make their steamer reservations.

I called three times last week
