mental matters were taken up.
In state affairs the men took up the
proposed initiative measures and dis
cussed them. Among other endorse
ments given was the passage of reso
lutions favoring the "Anti-Compulsory
Vaccination Amendment" as follows:
"Resolved, that the La Grande Post I
of the American Legion go on record
as favoring the passage of the Anti
Compulsory Vaccination Amendment,
to be submitted to the people of Ore
gon on November 2 ,1920,
We believe that the -amendment
should be passed for the following rea
sons: As an organzation we have no
citizens of this state to submit to a
particular form of' medical treat
ment or to be denied the freedom of
our public institutions is an usurpation
of the sacred rights of the free citizens
of this state and is as pernicious as
would be the enforcement of compul
sory or slate religion. -
We believe that the passage of the
present proposed Anti-Compulsory
Vaccination Amendment will be a step"
towards guaranteeing to the free peo
ple, of this state the freedom of
thought and acton embodied in the
principles for which we fought In the
late war. . '

respectfully urge all electors to vote

We hruiestly believe that public In

measure by the people, and that the
whole state ought to take pride In the
maintenance of this breeding place
of the wild water fowl. There Is land
enough In Oregon. There Is no other
body of water In the state of this type.
Its maintenance means more than
money to the people who are nature
lovers, and Its perpetuation as a game

years In its pVwer to attract sports

give Cox a 200,000 plurality, and that
every state in which he travels will
mil up a Cox plurality with the pos
