Jimmie Hinde, Manager WATSON CHARGES TURNS OUT TO HE FARCICAL Couldn't Even Prove Any of Them by Deserters and a (ieneral Crowd of Irresponsible .Men i a The Greensboro News, referring to Tom Watson's charges that men were killed by officers and others hanged without trial, says that the hearing has degenerated into a pitable farce as mi,;ht have been expected. Desert ers, renegades, thieves, even insane men, have been dragged to the wit ness stand to bolster up the Georgian's tottering cause; and Senator Wat son has cause indeed to say with old Sir John, '"if I be not ashamed of my soldiers, I am a soused gurnet!" Yet even with the legion of sorry rascals that the senator has brought to Washington he hns not been able to prove the least noteworthy of his charges; and the emptiness of them all is becoming more apparent every day. Yet at least one officer of the American Expeditionary Forfes has been done a bitter injury. Major Opie's reputation may be cleared, but nothing will ever wipe out the scars of the experience that he has been through. To be held up before the country, not merely as a murderer, but as the murderer or brave men who were defend ins their country against its most dangerous enemy well, no matter how many times a man may be acquitted, he never quit-; recovers from a thing like that. And now it appears that the charge was made on the testimony of a crazy man! Thus the Georgian senator's craze for notoriety has led him to attempt to blacken the reputation of a gal lant officer whose only crime was that he happened to have men in hi command who later went crazy. The witness' own infirmity absolves him fiom blume. It now rests on Watson; for, even if we give him the benefit of the doubt and admit that he believe the charges himself, it must not be forgotten that an effort was made to conduct this investigation in private, and Watson defeated it. Had the charges been looked into privately, when it was found that the only witness against Opie was a crazy man, whereas the iiicer could bring any num.ier of f.me nun to testify in his behalf, the thinc would have been dropped of co'jr.-u1. and the major would not have been put through this soul-scaring expe rience. But who could expert Watson to be stopped by considerations of de cency, when he had proved, during the war, that he could r.ot be stopped even by consideration of the safety of his country? Watson can'c within an ace of meeting the same fate tin; overtook Debs; he wai a Germaiio phile, and an obstructionist cf "he most offensive sort during th? w. but he was shrewder lhan D!s i.nd so managed to stay just within the law. Such a man is ':apaiIe of any thing, even the infamv of this scur rilous affair. LOCAL LEGION WANTS 1HG MEMBERSHIP IN '22 Six Hundred Ex-Service Men in the County And at Least Two Hundred Are Wanted I!y Olin McManus, Adjutant. For the information of the mem bers of Melvin Deese Post No. 27 American Legion and all other ex service men of Union county, the ad jutant wishes to make known the plans formulated by the new com mander, Mr. Sam II. Lee, and the executive committee, for a member ship drive for 11)22. The sole aim of the post is to bring into the Legion a minimum member ship of not less than two hundred for H22. There are some six hundred ex-service men in Union county eligi ble for the American Legion and by putting forth a Little extra effort this purpo-e can be accomplished. This year's membership campaign is divided in two committees, Henry W. Crow chair of one and Thomas N. Lee, chairman of the other. Each chairman has a list of men eligible for membership in the American Le gion. These chairmen are to divide their list in sub-divisions with sub chairmen and in this way every eligi ble person can and will be reached. In cases where a person renews his dues tn any officer of the Legion the committee which has this name will receive credit for same. A report of this committee will be heard at the next regular meeting of the Legion on the first Monday night in February at the Legion hall 7;30 o'clock. This meeting will be held jointly with the Americnn Le gion Auxiliary and refreshments will be served also. The membership team securing the most paid up members is to be enter tained by the losing committee on tho first Monday night in March at th-? Legion Club rooms. Remember the teams are composed of all the names on each chairman's list, i.nd it is up to every man to bring in another member along witn him in order to help his comni'ttee on top. In the next few issues of the local papers some very interesting points with regard to the American Legion will be brought to the attention of the ex-service men of Union county ns well as to the public.
