Stevens, Jr., State Commander of the American Legion Is Guest Of Honor One of the moat unusual reunions of American veterans that has ever been held in Franklin County, was staged recently by the Jambes Poet ot the American Legion, when It was host at a delicious turkey and oyster dinner, served at the Franklin Hotel. The reunion was unique. In that for the first time In the history of <Louls burg, veterans of the Civil War, the Spanish American War, and the World j War met with each other to renew the bonds ot comradeship that have grown out of the service mutually shared by three generations, that serv ice being the military defense of their wountry in times of war. Officers of Legion Posts, and promi nent Legionnaires from Smlthfleld, Raleigh, Henderson, Nashville, Apex, Spring Hope, Fraaklinton, Middlesex and Lexington, gathered almost one hundred strong, to enjoy themselves and to discuss plans for the promo tion ot community betterment by the American Legion, throughout the fourth district.

Stockard, i ..nimltteeman of the Fourth District. brief addresses of welcome to the visitors, Invocation was offered by Lev. S. L. Blanton, Commander ot the 1 I'unklinton Post. Although the meeting was lively, and merriment was master of cere monies, one could not help having a little twlhge at sorrow creep through the atmosphere of gaiety, when he noted thevacant chairs that had " veterans? t the War placed tor the noblest of all ve the Confederate Veterans of between the States Out of the num bers of Confederate Veterans Invited Capt D. C. Tharrlngton was the only man to attend. However, he was sore ly "one of the boys," and he responded and spoke gallantly for his comrades. The Spanish American Veterans were one hundred per cent strong in their representation. Messrs. Dave McKlnne, Charlie Elmore, Bed Mea dows and Joe Moss, of Franklinton, were there tp show that the Spanish American Vets have net forgotten a mess calL A feature speech was ex pected from them, something alarming, but their Big Ben failed to go off as scheduled. After tne desert coarse, tne meet ing resolved Itself Into so open dis cussion of worth while post activities and prominent Legionnaires exchang ed ideaa. A harvest of helpful hints wsa gleaned by those present, which will be' of great benefit to their re spective poets. Major Jim Leonard, Committeeman of the 8eventh District came down to tell the Easterners, "Hbw we get things done oat oar way." Henry L. r,Jr? State Com mander of the American Legion, won the hearts of hii- conundes with his pleasing personality, when he arose to deliver the principal address of the evdning. In his speech he briefly sketched the past achievements of the ~~?afio American Legion, notable among which are the National Endowment Fund for the widows and.prphans of World War Veterans, the Over Seas Graves Decora tion Sinking Fond, and the Adjusted Compensation Act He delighted his audience with fbe statement that after years of toll, thS-D^ft. Veteran Bureau, and the OteenijHospItal, are examples of effiolsacy. Commander Stevens stated that the^ principal objective of the Legion tor th* oacemlng year is Increase In membership. He closed his most able address by citing a few reasons for an ex-service man's join ing the American Legion. Briefly stated hla reasons were as follows: oUW % should hare a eeutllaental feeling for Ala comrades of the World War, and should associate himself more cloeely with them by becoming a (Legionnaire. Honor. Every ex-service man should -appreciate the fact that membership in the Legion is a distinct honor, and one that every man cannot have. Duty to onae country. Every ex-service man should realise that as a dtlasn of Amerloa, be Is obligated to continue fighting In times of pence for the betterment of his oommuntty. and na tion. Commander Stevens wee tendered a tremendous applause at the eloee of his address, which was significant that hs had voiced the seat tenants of his fsllow Legionnaires. The foed wee delicious and Comrade Ben Ogburn displayed uausual ability by rendering unusually excellent serv ice. The table deoorations, arranged by Mrs. Ogburn, Was "TossT Ogburn, and Miss Lynns Hall, ware beautiful and decidedly fitting for the oooasioa The favors chosen by them were so very appropriate that the Legionnaires became "eouvenler hounds" on g i and captWed every toy gun for ;W? thei/vrolioetra bo adopted I Harry HofttwB,1** life 1* the with the beat msnfe that tans ? in masy moen^jSi _ ? heart from the different NO MAIL ON OHMSTMAS DAT I Post Office Employees To Have] Holiday Now after 160 year* of uncomplain ing work, and drudgery on Chrlst maa Day the employee* of the U. 8.
