Telegram Said to Sanction
Work Is Not Produced.
Portland Post Seeks to Awaken Pab
lic Interest in Placing Work in
Hands of Bed Cross.
' It is possible that the Portland post,
American Legion, will take further
steps to awaken public interest in the
matter , of conducting relief work for
the people of former enemy countries
through some recognized American or
ganization, such as the Red eross, in
accordance with their recently adopted
resolution of censure toward the work
of the German and Austrian relief com
mittee of the Pacific northwest.
It is contended by members of the
legion that this organization, which
has headquarters at 215 Fourth street,
and which is said already to have col
lected $15,000 for the relief of the
destitute peoples of Germany and Aus
tria, Bhould at least conduct its pub
licity and solicitation in the English
language, and should, as a matter of
recognized authority, take steps at
once to turn its projects over to an
American organization.
Legion's Efforts Balked.
Efforts of the legion to determine
the authority by which the so-called
relief committee is operating have thus
far met with no success. Members of
the legion committee have been told
that the Portland officers of the Ger
man and Austrian relief committee are
proceeding under the sanction of high
governmental authorities, but no docu
mentary proof has accompanied the
' "When our committee called on them
at their office the boys were met with
this assertion," said Arthur A. Murphy
cf the executive committee of Portland
post, American Legion. "The commit-
"teemen weie told that W. G. McAdoo,
former secretary of the treasury, had
-sent a telegram sanctioning the plan
for German and Austrian relief. Mr.
Kern and his associates were asked to
produce the message, but failed to com
ply with the request."
Pleas Printed In German.
According to information in the
hands of the Portland post, all of the
publicity work of the relief committee
has been conducted in the German lan
guage, and letters of appeal have been
accompanied by copies of a German
newspaper, the Nachrichten, presum
ably the journalistic successor of the
Teutsches Zeitung, a German-language
paper which was suppressed during the
war. Members of the relief committee
are Ernest Kroner, chairman; A. E.
Kern, secretary; Paul Wessinger,
Henry Eilers, John Montag and John
The Portland Social Turn "Verein, an
organization largely comprised of citi
zens of German blood, has not at any
time been approached to join in the re
lief work, according to F. L. Nagel,
president, though it is ordinarily to the
fore in all matters of philanthropy and
crc-cial service.
Red Cross Is Suggested.
. "I think if I were going to help any
one out, I would do it as an American,"
said Mr. Nagel yesterday. "I would do
it through some properly constituted
American organization, using the Eng
lish language. I understand that the
publicity matter sent out by the Ger
man and Austrian relief committee has
all been in German print.
"It appears that the guiding spirits
of the enterprise are members of the
old German newspaper crowd. They
sneered as us' (the Turn Verein) for
our attitude during the war, and I im
agine that we are being ignored in. the
present work because of our stand at
that time.
"I have a great deal of faith, in the
liberality and warm-heartedness of the
American people. We have great char
itable and relief organizations, such as
the Red Cross, to take up such work as
this of German and Austrian relief. 1
can see no reason whv if- shnulri Ha
conducted in a foreign tongue, to the
exclusion of real American institu
tions." The resolutions adopted by the local
post, American Legion, scored the foreign-language
organization heavily, de
claring that it and its kind afford an
opportunity to "persons disloyal, or not
loyal, to the United States," to utilize
the same "as a. subterfuge for the dis
semination of propaganda inimical to
the United States."
We wish' to thank our friends and
neighbors for their many acts of kind
ness and love during the illness and
death of our brother. Angelo Figini.
