This magazine is the official organ •of the Loyal American club, a new camouflage organization to fight for reactionary politics.

SISSETON, SOUTH DAKOTA. J, A11V 1«, 1920 Legion, we are glad to'submit the fol lowing article from the New York World. The World is probably ths most prominent organ ot the Demo cratic party in the country. If an •at tempt of boycott is going to be made on the Standard, it seems that we should put the Legionaires of New York wise to the fact that there is also an enemy in their cam p. A statement issued by the Gover nor of Washington may fairly be ac cepted as a barometer of the hysteria and the official incompetence that have revealed themselves since the Generali« affair. The Goveri or says: "That the fair nametof Washing ton may not b? further smirched that this State may be a safe place for all law-abiding people that our government may not be weakened by a cankerous growth, fostered and nourished or even permitted here, I admonish and request all to whom this is addressed to stamp out Bol shevism, I W. Wism and all other seditious doctrines." This may serve very well as a sample ot Northwestern rhetoric, but what the State of Washington plainly needs is an administration ot gov ernment that has brains enough to deal with a murder case according to due process of law. It is not a crime to be a member of the I. W. W., which is a radical labor organization that has been in exis tence for a great many years and that is seeking to overthrow the present wage system, Nor is it a crime in it self to be a Bolshevik.

W. and some of the marchers who foil out oi line and attacked the I. W. W. headquarters. In either event the authorities of the State of Washington are not con fronted with a conspiracy to over throw government but with a viola tion ot the penal code, and offiical lawlessness is a sorry antidote to in dividual lawlessness. Murders are committed by individuals, not by or ganizations, and guilt is a very per sonal matter. In spite ot the poses ot professional politicians and platform orators, there is no Bolshevik agitation, which is mainly rhetorical, and the I. W. W. leaders are trying to capilalize in dustrial discontent for the benefit of their peculiar economic theories. But the American people are not tools and they have not gone crazy. They do not need a nurse to take tl em to work in the morning and bring them home at night lest they be corrupted by the seditious doctrines of soap box orators. They have a great deal more sense than the pliticians who are worrying about the quality ot their Americanism, and whenever they are put to test they prove if. "The tolly and incapacity ot bung ling politicians intrusted with the res ponsibiltles ot government present a much graver danger to the country to day than all the wild words, all the wild agitators.

H. Xergaiml and Family Write ent reSiinder that the American sol dier was. at all times, to show his good bringing up by being courteous even to the natives of the occupied territory. In some cases it was a difficult oider to follows. Many Ger mans cfni'lil not bear the idea of be i:'o the authority of a bunch of uncivilized Americans, as they styled the doughboys. But the earnest at tempt that was made by the Ameri can .soldiers to treat the civilian populat'Uui with fairness and courtesy soon changed the attitude ot these skeptics and the Americans were soon known as the peers of the allied armies to them. Even the German prisoners were treated with a courtesy, on the whole, that will commend itself to the bright pages of our future history. It was evpedient for us, for those very peo 1 pie, wlho had been our antagonists, I would -Vtivk willingly to overthrow This method has proved'to be the most'..acceptable, in all instances where we are forced to mingle with the (reposition. The' present fight for political supreiÄicy. is one in which the pro cess o'c being coutreous, should com mend itself to all conserned. It is not necessary for either ot the many factions, striving for political victory, to treat their adversaries with any less amount of courtesy, than if they had collaborated on the main issues. It will prove detrimental to both parties, if a leaguer scoffs and jeers at a dyed in the wool reactionary— and visa versa. The best that can be said of such actions, is that they are superficial and have no place in the mind of a thinking: man. If.devil, himself, should some early mprn, knock at the gates ot heaven, I can't believe but that he would be given a Good Morning, before being denied admittance.

To our Friends in and around Sis scton: To let you all know that we» have gotten to Sunny California, as you all know we left Sisseton Oct. 28 th. We stayed in Denver, Colo, eight days, Salt Lake City one day and San Francisco one day. Mr. and Mrs. Mas singham remained there with their son Paul: We came on to Los Angeles' where we met Mr. and Mrs. Harry Oottingham. Then came here to Long Beach, where we met Mrs. Hill and daughter. Then began the hunt for some place to live, which only took •three days. Altlro profiteering is not as bad here as in South Dakota, they get after the tourists around here on rent. We are all feeling"well and well pleased with this country. Tho wa had one slight frost that touched string beans and potato vines in blossom. The weather is extra nice. It's a little cold ecenings after the sun goes down, but every day is just like the nicest June day in South Dakota. Flowers and shrubs are in blossom and orange trees loaded with fruit which sure is a sight. We have been out some where tliore were miles and »miles of orange and lemon groves and its a sight to see how beautiful they arc. We were to Pasadena New Years day to a Rose-Carnival and the beau ty of their floats were that they were all made from fresh cut roses and .flowers of all kinds. I will not at tempt to explain for I have never imagined anything so grand. At Pasadent we met August Red etzke from Browns Valley, who is living In Los 'Angeles. He looks the same as he has for the last twenty years. I think Long Beach is an Ideal place to live in. It is built up for tourists and everything is done to entertain them. They have the great est assortment of amusements that I 'have heard of, and the place itself is very beautiful. The ocean here is never rough as it is protected on the south by the Catalina islands and on the west bjj a range of hills. We have been out on the battle ships lying in the harbor and were to Fort McArthur and saw them prac tice with their "little" fonriteen inch cannons. I have seen the launching of new ships in the ship yards here, of which there are three, and it's not There is v. great deal of work go ing on here at present. They are build ing all over the city, mostly new 'apartment houses. Still thousands of people leave here because they can get no place tö stay, and property here is very high. They claim there is over fourty thousand tourists at the present time. They have come from every state in the union, ot which half are from Iowa and a great many from South Dakota. J. J. Batterton and wife are at Up land, Cal. at the present time. Mr. Batterton was here and got partly promised rooms and will be here to live as soon ns he gets a place to stay.

NO. 30. «»»Operation and the League Believers in farmer co-operation will do well to mark the man who talks wildly of a conflict between co operation and the platform ot the Nonpartisan league, and marking him closely they will see a snake in ths grass. For it is difficult to overstate the advantages co-operation would have were this program enacted into law and farmer-labor officers in ths position to administer them. Let us take one ctffe—state- owned terminal elevators. "Terrible blow to co-operation," declares the anti-farm er agitator. The farmers ot the Northwest, after years ot co-operative struggle, have one important termin al elevator. The expense ot financing a terminal elevator is great and the private elevator interests, with their banks, set up many obstacles. And it the formers were to pay tor all the sacrifice, all the unpaid-tor effort that went into setting up this success ful terminal elevator, they would be behind tor years to come. On the other hand, suppose tha state had erected this terminal ele vator and furnished terminal eleva tor service at cost. Co-operative grain growers would then be able to follow their grain through to the final sale, just as they do now, without the great capital investment. All the capital that the co-operative farmers would then need would be capital tor their local elevators and money to finance their grain movements. oks like a great enemy ot co-operation, doesn't it? Co-operative grain handling has had great success in western Canada, and it is not generally realized that not only the terminal elevators but. the local elevators ot these co-opera tors were built with funds advanced by the state. They were thus ible to start large-scale operations quickly. State warehouses tor potatoes, poultry, apples and other jominodi tiea would enable co-operators to be gin and continue business with only sufficient capital to finance actual movement of goods. This Would cer tainly be a great "blow" to co-opera tion New Pastor Installed On Sunday the 11th of January, the installation of the Rev. C. S, Vang took place at the Goodwill Lu-, the ran church of gibieton and Saron churches. Rev. Vani »vas installed by President N. Boe of Sioux Falls. The installation at Sisseton began at 10:30 o'clock a. m. The Installation at Saron began at 3 p. m. Ait both places, there were crowds that pack? ed the churches. The coming ot Rev. Vang to serve the congregations ot these churches iq a great point ot progress in the church life of the community. Rev. Vang brings with him an experience of long faithful service as a minister of the Gospel. He has been pastor of the Zion Lutheran Church ot Chica go tor eight years. During that time he built a new church, increased the congregation and received the high^ est praise from the, members ot his congregation. We predict that Rev. Vang's efforts here will be attended, by the same success as has followed him hereto fore.
