Poppies Give Jobs
To Disabled Veterans
Profitable employment for hun
dreds of disabled war veterans has
been provided by the memorial pop
pies which will be worn on Poppy
Day, Saturday, May 27, in tribute
to the World War dead, explained
Mrs. May Gilliam, poppy chairman
of Heppner unit of the American
Legion auxiliary, as the auxiliary
women prepared for the annual ob
servance of Poppy Day here.
Poppies have been made this year
at seventy-eight government hos
pitals and auxiliary workrooms in
fifty-one states, where disabled vet
erans unable to do other work have
been given employment during the
winter and spring months. The work
has been restricted largely to vet
erans receiving little or no govern
ment compensation and to those with
dependent families. The bulk of the
money earned has gone to the sup
port of families left in need when
the veteran father became disabled.
The poppies which will be dis
tributed here on Poppy Day have
been made at Veterans' Hospital 77
in Portland where disabled veterans
have been engaged in shaping the
little red memorial flowers under
the direction" of the Oregon depart
ment of the auxiliary. Materials have
been supplied by the auxiliary and
the workers paid at regular inter
vals from auxiliary funds. Poppy
earnings have been a great boon to
many veterans' families in Oregon
during past months.
The disabled veterans are the only
paid workers in the auxiliary's pop
py program. The women who dis
MIM1IR P I D I ft A
tribute the flowers serve as unpaid
volunteers and all contributions they
receive go to the rehabilitation and
welfare work of the American Le
gion and auxiliary.
