purpose could do no good.
At the San Antonio national
convention this year, a practical
plan looking toward universal
peace will be presented, Mr, Spaf
ford declared.
The' legion is also working as
a unit in support of the Capper
Johnson bill which proposes the
universal draft, a bill which will
make slackers and profiteers Im
possible if another war comes, but
wnicn is not, as some have
claimed, conscription of capital
and labor, which if true would
make the bill unconstitutional.
What this bill proposes, he ex
plained, is a universal draft of
men between the ages of 21 and
30 no exemptions for any reason
and designation of the, president
as absolute dictator over all In
dustry, both capital and labor.
The passage of this bill would
be a signal to the world that the
United States does not want war,
but that if it comes, the nation
will be a unit in carrying it on.
ine legion at every national
convention has gone on record for
preparedness, said Mr. SDafford
because it realizes that although
this is a peace loving nation, war
has come on. an average of every
25 years, and that it has never
been prepared.
