To the Editor:
As Poppy Day approaches. May 25
(Saturday), will you permit me to call
attention, through your columns, to
thle real significance of the symbol of
the Poppy?
Back in the dark days of 1918 when
our boys went into a strange land
and among strange people—.to face
the greatest ordeal of their lives—l
wonder how they felt towards those
of us who stayed behind and cheer
ed them on? 1 imagine they felt that
we were a bulwark upon which they
could always depend regardless of the
outcome of this terrible adventure.
That helped. They knew wc were ex
pecting great things of them and they
could not fail. They did not fail. We
pledged ourselves to stand ‘by and we
must not fail.
When those lemaining—sick and
maimed and heartbroken) over the
comrades leit on the battle field—met
in Paris to form themselves into a
Legion—with the determination to
carryoin—do yo uwonder they called
themselves the American Legion. The
word that typefies the homeland and
haven where they longed to lay down
their weary burden and rest?
Seventeen years have elapsed since
these boys came trudging back from
a veritable hell, broken and spent in
body and spirit to gather up the
threads of life and start out again. An
appalling number of these men are in
our hospitals and are receiving such
aid as the government can give. They
are dying at the rate of 15 per day.
The time grows short in which we
can help. \
It has been my privilege to spend
some time in Asheville within the last
several years and I have visited Oteen
Hospital for Tubercular ex-service
men. These boys get the very best
hospitalization and medical attention
is possible to secure. I am sure this
is the case in all government hos
The little white crosses that dot the
poppy field of France cry out to us
“Save our buddies." Can we resist this
appeal from beyond the grave? They
are gone and there is nothing we can
do for them, but we can mother then
orphans. sustain their widows and
lend a helping hand to their buddies.
"In Memoriam." So the poppy was
selected as the symbol with which and
by which we remember our beloved
dead and render aid to those broken
in body and spirit.
In the American Legion and the
American Legion Auxiliary organized
under the very shadows of the little
white crosses, we are privileged to
render such aid as we will. The work
of the Legion and its Auxiliary is a
memorial to the boys who made the
supreme sacrifice and it is of such
magnitude that we can scarcely grasp
the significance.
At Oteen. The American, Legion
Auxiliary has employed a lady, who
as far as it is possible takes the place
of Mother to these poor sick boys.
She shops for them—.buying cigar
ettes, writing paper, stamps, night
shirts, soft pillows, robes (most of
these boys are bed patients) etc. She
writes their letters when they are too
sick to do so for themselves. She
reads the Bible to them. She makett
contact often with families, long since
broken. She sends for the Mother or
the wife—or other relative to come
and sit beside their dying boy during
his last moments and she, herself,
standing by. I have seen these boys
die at Oteen and I have* seen their
loved ones arrive to say the last Good
Bye. who can say that this is not a
Magnlficient Gesture? All of this
made possible by the funds received
from the sale of the little red poppy,
to tjie loyal public, as they wear it.
remembering at the same time the
ones beneath the poppy covered Flan
ders field. One feels moved to gather
their poor weak bodies and sick souls,
them all in our arms and mother
and it is through the American Le
gion Auxiliary that we find expres
sion to this feeling.
These poppies are mad** by the ex
service men in hospitals, except in
the tubucular hospitals There they are
made by their wives or other rela
tions a few who have gone to Ashe
ville to he near their loved ones, and
have formed themselves into a little
colony just outside the gates of Oteen.
There, too. one finds an American Le
gion Auxiliary worker, among the lit
tle children of the families. They re
ceive one cent apiece for them and the
Auxiliary sells them and every cent
received goes towards tne work as
outlined above, with a very little go
ing to locals cases, while such cases
are pending for compensation and
hospitalitation etc.
So I hope when the ladies of thc-
American Legion Auxiliary and the
Junior Auxiliary give the people of
Henderson and vicinity the opportun
ity again this year to wear the poppy
in Memoriam they will be as liberal
as they can, in order that the work
above described may go on unham
pered and that these little things. In
significant within themselves, but con.
taining a world of comfort, may go on.
Cordially vours.

He was born of a noble,’ but

and sought to find his fortune
in the New World. Failing te
attain prosperity as a colonist at
Santo Domingo, he struck west

Isthmus of Panama. This feat
and subsequent explorations
made by Balboa only ended in
tragedy as he was beheaded on
charges of treason in 1517, th#
victim of the enmity of his supe

of the lands Balboa* claimed for
