closing session of its second annual
convention. Mr. Galbraith received
the majority necessary for choice on
the second ballot, his closest op

The passing of a resolution which
puts the legion on record as being in
favor' of the rigorous exclusion of
Japanese as Immigrants, cancellation
of the so-called "gentlemen s agree
ment" with Japan, the exclusion of
"picture brides" and the derision of
the convention to continue Its policy
of "strict neutrality" in regard to po
litical questions were the predominat
ing questions acted upon.
Japanese KxcluHlon FaTOrfd.
The Japanese question . came up
when the committee on Americanlza
tion presented its report. This report
"He It resolved that we go on rec
ord as being in favor of the cancella
tion of the so-called 'gentlemen's
agreement with Japan: exclusion of
picture brides' and rigorous exclusioli
of Japanese as immigrants.
And that we enter a vigorous pro
test against the demand of Japan
that naturalization rights be granted
to its nationals now located in the
United States and that we earnestly
request the state department of the
United States in its settlement of thia
question not to consider any proposi
tion which will grant rights of nat
uralization to this unassimilable peo
Stormy Debate Emt
The resolution was adopted as read,
but it created a stormy debate, it be
ing necessary for the sergeant-at
arms and his assistants to quell the
delegates several times. It was ex
plained by Leonard Wlthington of
Hawaii, chairman of the committee,
t hat this report was only a reiteration
of the action of the 1919 convention
for "the abrogation of the so-called
gentlemen's agreement, the exclusion
of picture brides and the exclusion of
all Japanese," but that the question
of a constitutional amendment which
might strip citizenship from persons
of oriental descent, already citizens
or prospective citizens, on account of
American birth, with all other phases
of the problem, Bhould go to a com
mittee which would report to the lVii
convention. The strongest opposition
came from New York.
On recommendations of the Amer
lcanlzation committee, the committee
voted that the national Americaniza
tion committee be adequately fi
rtanced. that its activities be contin
ued on a nation-wide educational
Americanization and pro-American
work and propaganda and that its of
lice be moved from New York to Le
gion headquarters at Indianapolis. I

report adopted by the convention
Urging Legion posts to see that all
members of the Legion qualify for,
and exercise the right of suffrage.
Favoring many American activities
including work for and among immi
grants, for school children and among
Americans within the United t?tates.
Political Fight Started.
The fight this afternoon came on
the quVstion of political restriction.
When the committee on constitutional
amendments made its report It sug
gested a few amendments to certain
articles of the constitution, the prin
cipal one being that "no person shall
be eligible for re-election to the of
fice of national commander or na
tional vice-commander." The report
was adopted. It did not mention poli
tics. However, as explained by Chairman
Wood, Pennsylvania, 'because of the
discussion on the question of politi
cal restrictions, it was decided by the
committee as a whole that a major
ity report and a minority report had
been presented. The report of the ma
jority, which carried, 33 to 3, In com
mittee, recommended "that the Legion
through its organization has the
right under its charter and constitu
tion to ascertain for the information
of Us members the attitude of can
didates for public office toward such
policies and principles."
The minority report merely recom
mended that "the report or the ma
jority be defeated."
I.rsrlon to Be Central.
The debate which followed was
torroy. A motion for a rollcall was
finally made and the vote stood 963
voting against the majority report,

the matter now stands, the Legion

BY MARK SULLIVAN.
ON BOARD HARDING TRAIN, Sep
tember 29. I havo heard Senator
Harding deliver some 12 formal
speeches during this campaign, begin
ning with his acceptance speech? In
the formal speeches of his present
trip and In the shorter greetings at
the train stops the diffsrence between
the Harding of the acceptance and the
Harding of the present was easily
marked. Senator Harding still has at
the beginning of his speeches enough
of engaging shyness to enlist from his
audiences just the degree of' sym
pathetic regard that makes the at
mosphere friendly. But he no longer
has that timorous diffidence which
marked every sentence of his accept
ance speech in July.
Everybody around him has noticed
the change. It is deeper than the
me overcoming of diffidence in
speech making that it Is more ap
parent. All the circumstances, of
course, have tended to bring about
the change in him, but so far as It can
be said to have an indefinable connec
tion with any one event, that event
was his speech at Minneapolis some
weeks ago. That was his first trip
away from the front porch. He em
barked upon it with a diffidence that
was easily apparent to those about
But the Minneapolis speech was a
conspicuous success. He felt the re
spect and affection of the huge audi
ence that heard him there, and there
after he approached his speeches with
assured self-confidence. After the
Minneapolis visit he was ready to take
on the world at speechmaklng.
There were two episodes In his
Baltimore speeches when Senator
Harding, partly through being forced
and partly because he felt like it, was
moved to depart from his st speech
and strike out alone without the sup
port of his manuscript. One of the
ventures called for graceful feeling
and the other called for boldness. To
both calls he measured up.
On one occasion he had just come
to the point in his manuscript which
said: "We are through with one-man
government." He said it with strong
emphasis and got applause in propor
tion. Someone in the gallery took ad
vantage of the pause to heckle him.
The question In effect was: "Will
you stand with Johnson on the
' Response Effective One
The audience plainly disapproved
the interruption, for Baltimore is
probably more punctilious than any
other city in America about courtesy
to a visitor.
But Senator Harding waved the
audience back into the seats and
strode with firm dignity to the edge
of the platform.
Tying the situation up to the words
of his speech in a manner that called
on him to be mentally quick on his
feet, he answered:
"If this were a one-man govern
ment, then I should be able to -tell you
what will be done.
The quickness and appropriateness
of the answer and the mental ability
that used the occasion to illustrate his
philosophy of the presidency won the
applause they deserved. Then, at the
conclusion of his speech, Harding
took up the question and dealt with
it fully, making an extemporaneous
close, which the audience listened to
with even more lively regard than to
the formal speech.
