gaming Sounded Against
; Excessive Faith in World
SEATTLE, April 2. (By Asso
ciated Press). Brigadier General
John R, McQuigg of Cleveland,
national commander of the Ameri
can Legion, in an address here
today sounded a warning against
excessive faith in world courts
and Hague tribunals on the
ground that "neither courts nor
tribunals can accomplish the im
possible." Commander McQuigg visited
Everett and Tacoma today before
leaving for Portland tonight.
"The American Legion," he de
clared, "has no" patience with
those well-meaning but misguided
people who even now are making
strenuous efforts to palsy the
army of America and deprive us
of the small defense we now have.
They shut their eyes to the his
tory of our country and ignore all
the experiences of the past. They
apparently are willing to jeopar
dize all we have gained in the
last century and a half if they are
only permitted to attempt the
creation of an impossible Utopia.
"Controversies and quarrels be
tween nations are almost certain
to arise and that mere agreement
not to have those things happen
have been to a large extent fu
tile," he continued.
