suitable quarters for our club room,

to have a-feed at the club room sometime
between iXmas and the New

There are 450 Ex-Service men in
(Person County but only a small percent
of these are members of the
American Legion. I presume all the
non-mmrtbers have their excuses for
staying out of the Legion but 1 hare
the first sane excuse yet to hear.
Somb may say that the Legion does
not amount to anything. I am sure
this would be the case if all Ex Soldiers
thought so. A kit of carpenters
tools would be worthless unless they
could he used. The American Legion
is also useless until we put it to
some use. (The Balaker never pays
you any interest until you have deposited
