ery, nntlonnl .commnndor of tho
Amorlcan Legion, dcclarod hero to
day in his nddrcss opening tho third
annual convention of (,ho Loglon.
"Such means as woro used last
summer to boat ndjustod compensa
tion ' cannot ultlmntnly nuccocd,"
Commander Emory told tho Legion.
'.'NotiilNK Is soltlod-until it U sot

"Tb'o Amorlcan pooplo nro tho
court of last resort and wlicrovor tho
Amorlcan pcoplu havo by tho ballot
passed Judgment on tho mattor of
ndjustod compensation that judg
ment has boen an endorsement of tho
Legion' stand.
"I cannot concelvo of n CongrosaJ
so derelict In Its duty, so unmindful
of Its just obllKntlons to thoso who
served- beir country at great flnan
rial losii, or ho blind to tho wishes
of our uooplo as to bo mislead agnin
Into refusing to adjust tho economic
balanco between tho man who wont
to wnr and tho man who did not."
Commander Emery roportod that
"In tho faco of odverso Industrial
conditions, which hnvo lilt -tho ox
servlro ntnn harder than any othor
class, tho Loglon has gained In
strength and Its financial position
has steadily Improved."
Ho sugostcd that tho political
"cI.-iuho In tho Legion's constitution,
which "will not pormlt nny ono who
holds or is Booking salarlod eloctlvo
public office, to hold oftlco' In tho
Legion or In nny dopnrtmont or post
thereof," bo extended to Includo ap
pointive offices. Ho added that ho
felt that "no porson In public llto, in
community, stato or nation, should
bo allowed to spook for tho Legion,
and that tho Legion must bo' allowod
to continue to spoak for Itsolf whon
Issuos Involving Borvlco mon nro con

tho world will understand."
Commander Emery paid high trib
ute to tho Wo Commandor Frodorle
W. Oalbralth, Jr., who .was killed
'in nn nutomobllo nccldont. Ho said
his ono nlni had boon to carry
through tbo groat program -which
Commando Oalbralth had loft un
finished. A
A notablo public sorvlco of tho paBt
year, Commandor Emory polntod out,
was tho "frustration of a nation
wide (lorman propaganda campaign
in tho United Sttncs." This, ho said,
was to start with a series of "Ithlno
Horror" moetlngs.
"Tho notorious propagandist, Von
Mach, bollovod ho had sq cloyorly
concoaled hla motives that ho asked
Oalbralth to spoak at tho first Rhino
Horror mooting nt Madison Squaro
Garden, Commandor Emory said.
"Ad you will remember, Oalbralth
did not wait that long before ho
spoko. Ho told Von Mach on tho
spot what bo thought ot him and his
project. Tho Loglon prepared Im
mediately to organlzo counter demon
strations wherovor tho pro-Oermans
might carry out their' pro-conceived
program. Most of thoso meotlngs
wordnovor held, however, for Von
Mach abandoned hla scheme atter
