FIGHTING PARSON IS LIKED R«v. Earl Blackman, National Chap lain of American Legion, Is Re garded as Man's Man. “Fighting parsons” were common during the World war, but those who actually fought were not. Rev. Ear] Blackman, Kansas, earned h I s sobriquet, however. He has been elected na tional chaplain of the American Le gion. To make fun for the boys while In France, Rev erend Blackman offered to box a !, V match with any chaplain of the A. E. F. of his weight. Be wasn’t chosen chaplain of the Legion for that rea son, however, his followers declare. It was because “he is at all times a man's man and represents the liberal spirit of the organization.” Returning from France, Reverend Blackman resumed his pulpit in Chanute, Kan. One of his first acts was to attend a public dance. He didn’t dance, but thoroughly enjoyed the fun. A protest came from his con gregation and he resigned. His resig nation wasn't accepted. Then he began doing other things. He rigged up a gymnasium in the basement of his church and gave box ing lessons to the boys of the Sunday school. The church liked it. Reverend Blackman refused offers from larger churches to stay with his pastorate in Chanute. His view of Sunday “blue laws” is characteristic: “To my mind the advocacy of such laws only serves to cheapen religion in the minds of the masses and tends to push it buck into the superstitions of the past. What is rest and relaxation to the farmer may not be such to the bank clerk.” HONOR BRITISH WAR MOTHER General Pershing Gives Her Kiss and American Legion Women Pay Tender Tribute. The alliance between those who served the United States and Great Britain against the common enemy during the World war was further strength ened by a kiss from General Pershing and honors from American war mothers, bestowed jpon Mrs. Ame lia Emma McCud flen, official Brit ish war mother. oefok \e sailed for return to the Island kingdom. Mrs. McCudden, mother of the noted major of the British air force who brought down more than 50 Ger man planes and won the Victoria cross before he was killed, was sent to America to represent England’s war mothers at the ceremonies for the un known American soldier. At a ban quet la Philadelphia in her honor, General Pershing upon being intro duced leaned over and kissed Mrs. McCudden. In New York she was taken Into membership of the Ameri can Legion auxiliary, composed of mothers, wives, sisters and daughters of the Legion, and the gold star of women whose relatives were killed was awarded her. MANY LEGION MEN BACHELORS Investigation Discloses Fact That Ma jority of Ex-Service Boys Prefer Single Blessedness. Three years after the wy 61.6 per .•ent of the former service men are still bachelors, according to Gray Wag gett, adjutant of the Evanston (III.) pest of the American Legion. Mr. Waggett has been conducting a cam paign to gain Information about Le gionnaires in the Middle West, and bases his statistics on 100,000 replies received. Os the 38.4 per cent who married American, French or German girls, 10 per cent have children. The house owners totaled 13.8 per cent and the business owners aggre gated 15.5 per cent; nevertheless 21.7 per cent are able to drive their own automobiles. Legion posts, too, have the billet owning fever, 44.5 per cent having per manent quarters now. while 26 per cent will get theirs In a short time. These statistics apply only to that part of the country. She Passed Up the Marines. Discovery that Mrs. Helen Ferguson Drexler was receiving S4OO a month from the government In soldiers' allot ment checks led to her arrest In Chi cago. She Is said to have had eleven husbands In the army and navy, but none in the marines. FOOL ’EM AND GET THE GOIN NATIONAL MANAGER OF NON PARTISAN LEAGUE TELLB HOW TO WORK FARMERS. If the farmers of Wyoming, who are being Importuned to Join the Nonparti san League and give up their $18 —or their promise to pay $18 —only under stood the elaborate plans laid to se cure their money, possibly they would not be so anxious to join, nor would they be so ready to denounce those who, knowing the truth, wish to give them the benefit of that truth. The national manager of the Non partisan League Just now Is D. C. Dor man. year Mr. Dorman, in con nection with the pronounced radical leaders of Butte, ran the Nonpartisan League in Montana, and the farmers of Wyoming should know something of what happened in that state. Dor man has just mailed to state managers for the League instruction how to work —how to get one farmer to in duce another to Join the League. He urges the state managers to work fast before the farmers get the truth con cerning the organization. In this let ter Dorman says: The Master Key. “The master key lies in our ability to organize members into crews that in turn will do the enrollment work, and the assignment of a quota of ter ritory for which each of these crews are held absolutely responsible. This work properly done by us in an organ ization way means our problems arc largely solved.” Keep In mind the one problem to be solved is getting “the coin.” Further in his instructions Dorman says: “Get in touch with a few men who know the country and divide each district into five parts; get a captain and crew for each part of the district; assign one part of the district to each crew as their quota of the national membership drive: arrange a day when each crew will begin work and ar range to be with them on that day.’ By noting just how the Nonpartisan League is working in Wyoming it will be found workers are keeping within the instructions of National Manager Dorman, and that the “crews” arc made up of fanners who are getting the “glory,” while the paid organizer? get away with the cash. Dorman urges further: Stay With the Job. “Be on hand the day ready to start; see all members of the crew are in the car: impress the members of the crew with the work they are doing. You must show each crew as you start them, that they should do their work quickly and how this can be accomp lished.” reads Mr. Dorman’s instruc tlon. . “They can not afford to waste time: ail the organization talk they need is this: ‘We have taken ovei tlie responsibility of rebuilding the League ourselves, we are doing the work and we are going to have con trol, and use the organization, and we want you with us.' ” Then Mr. Dor man writes: “No real man can stand out against five of his neighbors on this kind of a proposition. As soon as he is enrollee show him the necessity of hurrying or to his neighbor; show them why they should not talk anything else while the enrollment work is being done. You understand that all members of the crew must sign up and head the list before they start out to enlist their neighbors. Don’t waste any time talk ing to any but the captains and their crews. Aft/r the enrollment work ii done the captains and crews can talk to the members at large and the world in general.” Just rend those instructions again that you may grasp the care taken tn present fanners who are being sought for enrollment, advising with any one as to the merits or demerits of the Nonpartisan league. “Spills the Beans.” Mr. Donnan further “spills the beaus by informing the state man agers that the scheme is to “tie the farmers” to certain radical labor or ganlzations—or rather alleged labor organizations, because conservative union labor has nothing to do with them, and says: “For your Information we might state that along side of the League we are going to build a powerful labor organization, launched In a national way. with two years membership and a fee of $lB. In addition to this u strong woman's organization.” A new labor party, called the Work ers party. was recently launched In New York The New York Call, the leading Socialist dally in the country, In its issue of December 27, 1921, says: “With the adoption of n program and the election of a national execu tive committee, representatives of the Communist organizations gathered here, completed the formation of the Workers party yesterday." Is this the new “labor organization” which is to bp formed to work in con junction with the Nonpartisan League? There is much evidence that It Is, since many of those who took part In the convention. In the past, have boon loud in their praise of the Nonparti san League. And If It Is, the farmers who are digging up their $lB are not getting a square deal, because In this Communist organization the dues for two years are but sl2, or, perhaps, the organizers of this do not get ns large a ns the organizers for the Nonpartisan League. Brief News Notes From All Parts of Wyoming <'Veitem Newspaper Union Nevi Berrtce.) Jacking up his car to put on the chains Roy Webber of Newcastle sus tained a fracture of the wrist when the car slid off the jack and ran backward upon him. The store building, contents and per sonal property of M. L. Burns, in ad dition to SSOO in a cash, was destroyed by fire at Fox Park, a logging camp fifty-four miles west of Laramie. There was no insurance. The cause of the blaze has not been determined. At the annual meeting of the Casper Rod and Gun Club the following direc tors were named for the new year, in cluding officers of the concern : Jack Scott, president; A. A. Schulte, vice president; Harry Ward, secretary; H. J. Peterson, treasurer; Frank Algeo, <’. P. Plummer, J. W. Johnson, direc tors. An increase of $7,450 in the 1922 budget over the appropriations for 1921 was voted by the board of coun ty commissioners of Sheridan coun ty at their meeting at Sheridan. The 1922 budget is $140,750 compared with $133,800 for 1921. Election expense of $5,000 and the addition of deputy wa ter commissioners and live stock in speetors are the chief reasons for the increase. , A new irrigation project that will cover 40,000 acres of land in the Bo nanza and Broken Back sections of Big Horn county has been financed, the incorporation being for $500,000. A large reservoir will be built in the Big Horn mountains east of Ten Sleep lakes and the water brought over to Broken Back creek. The Bonanza unit, comprising 20,000 aers, will be built this year. After living more than six months with a broken back, Peter T. Oumakis, 36 years old, coal miner of Cumber land, Wyo., died in Denver at St. Luke’s hospital. He had been in the hospital for five months. Oumakis was injured in a mine accident in Cum berland last summer. His spine was fractured. In the hope that he might be cured he was taken to Denver, where he has relatives living. Representatives of farmers and stockmen’s organization from Sheridan county are to go to Cheyenne Jan. 23 for the purpose of submitting claims of exorbitant and discriminatory inter state freight rates in various instances. The delegation is to go to Cheyenne upon the invitation of the State Public Utility Commission, which is sending out notices to all sections of the state asking that complaints be presented at a public hearing for that purpose on that day. A project for an eighty-mile water pipe line from the Pathfinder dam to Casper is contained in the plans of the Casper Community Extension Corpor ation for beautifying Its tract adjoin ing Casper on the south. The watei will be used to create lakes and for domestic and commercial purposes In residence districts which will be laid out with ample provision for parks. Landscape plans for the section were submitted to the annual meeting of the organization for the first time. Building work in Casper during 1921, exclusive of the huge construction pro grams carried out by the refineries, amounted to approximately $2,060,000, or the equal of the 1920 program, ac cording to statistics compiled by the city engineer’s x office. During tlje iwelve-month period nearly 1,000 per mits were issued by the city, ranging from small structures to office build ings. In connection with the improve ments it is pointed out by the city en gineer that actual cost of construction during the last year exceeded esti mates by probably 30 per cent, making the amount expended nearer $2,750,000. Just three days after the last cent on its cost of construction had been paid, the Masonic Temple nt Rawlins was almost completely destroyed by fire. It will be necessary to rebuild entirely the interior of the building, it vas announced, and the damage to the building alone, exclusive of fur nishings, is estimated at $20,000, cov ered by insurance. The organization of a local dairy as sociation has been completed at Sara toga. About fifty ranchers of this community have signified their desire to engage in the dairy business and their applications for dairy stock ag gregate a total of 525 head. The next procedure will be to negotiate the nec essary loan through the War Finance Corporation. Governor Carey notified the federal department of child labor that the state of Wyoming would enter into co operation with the department with re gard to carrying out the provisions of the Shepard-Towner net. The work will be carried on through the State Board of Health by a bureau of ma ternal and infant hygiene. Wyoming Is one of the first of the western states to signify Its intention to co-operate with the provisions of this act. Clearings of the Casper banks as shown by reports of the Casper Clear ing House Association amounted in 1921 to about $53,398,356. The exact total being indefinite because the as sociation did not begin to function un til Feb. 1, 1921. During January, it Is estimated, clearings amounted to about M,000,000. Ralph S. Besse, formerly an official 3f the State Farm Bureau Federation, will have the honor and distinction of leing Yoder’s first mayor, having been fleeted over Dr. R. L. McCreery by a vote of 27 to 26.
