Proper steps are now being taken to
complete all legal transactions prior
to the taking over by the Board of Edu

Edward Spafford, commander of the
American Legion, concluded his address
in the Tro Cadero before a great gath

address was finished with the follow

Before leaving France the American
Legion chose as their mascot a blonde
girl seven years old (Americans prove
that gentlemen prefer blondes). They
had her dressed in white. Mr. Spafford
took the little girl in his arms, sat on
stage and sang in an amusing tone the

its national meeting there in Septem

to head the processions. The avenue
Des Champs-SIysees was decorated on
either side with cleverly arranged elec

at La Place de la Concorde. The mer

would close during the parade-—also
that they would make special reduction
on their merchandise for members of
the legion as well as their wives. The
cabarets in Montmartre put on their
most attractive and alluring programs.
All in all, all of Paris tnrned out to
