Bruadmlndednraa and Preparedness
to Serve Asserted by Oregon Le

A New Year's meseage to the min
isters and members of all churches
of the state has been Issued by the
American Legion, department of Ore
gon, through its chanlain. Rev. Frank
James of Dallas, Ore. The message
is made in an endeavor to place be
fore religious organizations of the
state the broadmindedness of the le
gion organizations, its strict impar
tiality and indiscrimination on relig
ious issues and that its only concern
is its preparedness to serve. The
message in full follows:
"To the Ministers and Members of
All the Churches in the State of Ore
As we stand once more unon the
threshold of another year I bring to
you the heartiest greetings of the
American Legion that this will be the
best and most uccesBful year in all
your history. And we sneak this
greeting from the eincercst depths of
our hearts. Wc have much for which
to thank you and every reason to
wish you well. We are not unmind
ful of the heroically unselfish service
which you rendered us by your most
hearty co-operation in all projects in
stituted for our comfort while en
gaged in the great world struggle of
a few years ago.
Yes, we are the same men. al
though organized under another
name; we have the same high ideals
and patriotic purposes, although we
are fighting for them upon the more
prosaic battlefield of peace. Yes, we
are men from every walk and pro
fession of life; our membership is
composed of men from every denom
ination of religion and those of no
denomination; but now, as then, we
stand shoulder to shoulder, as man
to man. Now, as then, we know no
race or creed or color; here we know
neither Protestant nor Catholic, Gen
tile or Jew; but one is for all, all for
one, and altogether we stand for ser
vice to the glorious Star-Spangled
Banner and the defense of the con
stitution which upholds it. We be
lieve ourselves to be an organization
of 100 per cent Americans ready to
serve our country and our flag with
the same measure of devotion in times
of peace as characterized our service
n the tlmea of war.
And now we are about to take our
stand in another sector on the bat
tlefields of peace and strive to ob
tain our objectives and bring to real
ity the ideals for which we strive;
we bespeak a like measure of your
support and cooperation as charac
terized your activities during the
world war. With heartiest personal
greetings and best wishes, I have the
honor to be yours for service.

Indianapolis, Ind. (National Head-
quartern, American legion). Total
exciuH.on of all immigration for a
period of five years will be asked of
Congress by the American Legion.
The Legion's stand on immigration,
according to a number of speakers at
the recent conference, is based upon
the increase in illiteracy in this
country which in turn is said to be
responsible for all red and bolshe
