Saturday, December 5, the

erican Legion publication, appear
ed in Vernonia. The first attempt,
more than two years ago, was but
a miniature compared with the last.
This was a six-page, full size news
paper giving a record of the ac
tivities of Vernonia post of the
American Legion and its sister or-
ganization, the American Legion
Sole credit for the work of writ-
ing the material, securing the ad-
vertisements, and collecting
finishing up all details except the
mechanical work of printing must
go to Lee Schwab, local employe
of the United Railways company.

conform strictly to the rigid rules
evolved through the years for news
papers, nevertheless it unquestion
ably was received by its many
readers with a marked degree of
appreciation. Local organizations
were indiscriminately praised for
their work in both civic affairs
and in helping the Legion. Indi-
viduals in Vernonia, whether leg-
ionnaires or not, 'were given much
credit for help they have given. I
A request made by others that
they be permitted to have space
to give Lee Schwab the credit
that was due him in his efforts
