We hare secured new and more suitable quarters for our club room, and hope to have everything in good condition before Xmas. We enpect to have a-feed at the club room sometime between iXmas and the New Year and want every mbmber present. 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 money in his bank.

We have men who fought for your I )Flag and mi^e and are willing. to fight again for any good cause. Any red blooded man should be proud to be a member of an organization; backed by the brains that won the I greatest war in the history of the world. The reasons for the existence of the American. Legion are: To uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America; to maintain law and order; to foster and perpetuate a one hundred pencent Americanism; to preserve the memories end incidents of our association in the Great War; to inculcate a sense of individual obligation "to the community, state and nation, to combat the autocracy of both the classes and the maasees; to make right the master of might; to promote peace and good will on posterity the principles of justice, freedom and democracy; to ' cotnsecrdte and sanctify our comradeship hv our devotion to mutual helpfulness. If you want any information concerning the Legion I shall be glad to give you same or get it for you.! Any disabled Ex-Soldier that is not! receiving (proper core , from the) government will notify the Comman-' der or *Adjutant so the matter can bei called to the attention of the prop-; er authorities. * j Join the Legion now.
