LEGION TO DRIVE FOR
Salem's Quota Set At 300 In
Nation-Wide Campaign For
: Titers are two grand events that bring
llie American Legion prominently be
fore the public this week. The state
' convention is hold in Portland Wednes
day and Thursday, with Theo. Roosevelt
Jr., rh, the chief attraction. Then
' President Carleton &uitii bas juit re
ceived a letter from Portland headquar-
- ters stating that a national campaign
for membership has been announced
from the national officials, who havo
made as their objective a million mem
bers .'The quota for Sulem will bo 300,
and the local branch is urged to get
behind the movement with all possible
Fortunately the way has been pre
pared for just such a campaign by the
officers of the local post, who weeks
ugo made plans for building o,p tue
uiniiliersHhi). A thousand letters are
being mailed out to returned soldiers
and sailors, inviting them to come into
the ranks of good-fellowship, ana use
is being made of big posters to attract
While the campaign, under the man-t-.gciuent
of Ivan McDanicl, will not be
.run fined to the present week; President
Hmith will enlist a committee. of hustlers
to get out and make a special effort
to reach the quota. The great idea Is
tliut every additional member means ib '
additional attraction to the order. It
bus been suggested that a booster meet-4
ing bo held during the fair, but the'
committee has deemed it advisable to
call this meeting off and instcud to t
rnngc for a grand dnnco and entertain-
i meut feature to be put on sometimes in
October. In the meantime President
Hiuith ea) upon every member to con
sider himself a committee of one to in-
. vlte fellow service man Into the ranks.
There are indications that some of
the boys are being kept from member-'
ship through misapprehension as to the'
niiii.t and purposes of the Legion, It
should bo understood that it has the
broadest possible scope, and that it is
not tied up with nny political, niiiitary
or other plans. It is essentially a civil-j
inn organization, with motives tiu.t em
brace the highest welfare of the nation
and of the individual members. It may
concern itself with important legisla
tion, but never wtih partisan politics.
It is intended to gatlier up from the
entire body of service men and women
the elements Of patriotism and Ameri
canism and crystallize them into action.
Its invitation is so broad that no degree
of rank or service or social position can
make any difference in its membership.
Tho stnte contention in Portland is like
ly to prove a memorable galherlnjr
which which should be largely attended.
The official delegates, chosen are Ivan
G. McPaniels, Dr. W. C. Smith, Dr. R. D.
Byrd, Millar McGilshrist, Leo Page,
Robin Day, Frederick Lamport, and L.
II. Compton. It is hoped that the Salem
post will be well represented.
