WILL WRITE POST’S HISTORY Rupert Hughes, Author, Will Chron- Icle Happenings to Members of Robert Stowe Gill Body. The history of one American Legion post will be written by no less a light than Rupert Hughes. With an eye to his versa tile pen, mem bers of the Rob ert Stowe Gill post of the Le gi o n In New York, have made the author their historian. The membership o f the post Is made up entirely of members of the , IP Lamb’s club—writers and actors for the most part. "Long in time and short in impor- I tance" is the way Mr. Hughes de scribes his military career. As a mat- j ter of fact he was a fairly important soldier. He started as a private in the Seventh regiment in 1897. Ten years later he was offered a lieuten ant colonelcy, which he did not ac cept. He served on the Mexican bor : der as a captain, and only deafness kept him from service abroad during the World war. During the raising of troops in New York he served as adjutant general, where bis deafness was an asset rather than a liability with the pacifists tooting their tin whistles, and then he became a cap tain in the Intelligence service, being just as intelligent when deaf as when sharp of hearing. "I joined the Legion," Mr. Hughes wrote, "because I believe in its prin ciples and I believe it to be one of the most Important organizations in the country.” Mr. Hughes has recently come into public notice for bls stand against censorship.

AN EYE ON NEXT CONGRESS Official Washington Is Speculating on Mow Many Ex-Sorvlco Mon Will Bo Returned.
