The American Legion Auxiliary met
on Tuesday evening, May 3, with 35

Post were guests. Four new mem
rers were initiated. We very much
regretted that the fifth was unable
to be present. We now need only
one more member to complete tha
quota assigned us for this year, and
hope we may secure that one before
The officers put on the initiatory
work in a very creditable manner, all
having their parts well memorized

We had the pleasure of listening
to an instructive talk by Professor
Burgess on the history of govern
ment, taking it from the very be
ginning, and showing how our own
government has been developed. He
1'ointed out the fact that our nation
has made a comparatively rapid rise
to fame and superiority among na

us this interesting talk.

Reid in part that the government has
authorized the expenditure of over
$1,000,000 for the disabled veterans
in the state of Oregon. This supplies
the bore necessities, all regulation
material, such as bandages, etc. Any
ihing apart frcm this ii supplied by
the Auxiliaries. Mr. Cooper said that
he had learned that no man can ade
quately supply hospitalization, that
these extra comforts need the touch
of a woman's hand. He said the in
fluence which the Auxiliaries hnve
over these veterans is plainly shown
on visiting day, wnen the whole mor
ale of the hospital is rcvivtd because
the inmates feel there is someone
who is personally interested in them.
This again is noticeable in the slump
which conies on the day alter visit

We are proud of our national pros

Norman Klein, an investigator. One
rum-running syndicate could afford
o invest $10,000,000 and to pay men
on their rum-running crews $50 a
night for a good deal less than eight
hours' work. One man tells how he
used to get only $30 to $37 a week.
"but I was ambitious," says he, "so
they put me on a runner, and I got

lady as follows: "Kissing is about
to be carried so far that every lady
is likely to get so tired of it that it
may go utterly out of fashion."
The St. Joseph (Mo.) News-Press
says: "The girls have responded
nobly to the appeal for the observ

A negro applying for admission to
a Government training camp is told
by the War Department that rules
make it impossible to admit him.
Regulations say colored men must en
list in colored regiments. Camps for
colored young men will be established
which may solve the problem.
However, if whites have the right
to decide in what regiments and
camps colored young men may enroll,
it would seem only fair to let the
colored young men decide in what par

Jacob Wassermann, able German

Chicago industrial workers might
