Dear Mr. Smith:
“The higher authority, about
which I (poke at the meeting of the
Executive Committee of tha North
Carolina Deportment of The Ameri
can Legion at the Jack Tar Hotel
in Durham oh Priday. June 19, ha»
ruled that the provision! of our
Constitution setting up Division VI
was void ab initio.
“Department Adjutant Nash Mc-
Kee. Judge Advocate Clarence Boy
an. Commander elect Leroy S. La
key and 1 had a meeting at Legion
Headouarters in Raleigh yesterday
afternoon and came to the conclus
ion that this ruling strikes down
the provisions of the Constitution
which ware objectionable to you
and that in the future the North
Carolina Department of the Legion
should operate at if there had never
beAn any provisions for the estab
lishment of Division VI and further
that the Constitution and By-Laws
Committee should now revise the
Constitution to M to eliminate any
rAfArende- to Division Vt
“It Is my opinion that you and
all As the Division VI staff, com
mittee chairman, area and district
edfnmindam should immediately
•end their resignations to Depart
ment Adjutant Nash McKee, and
that an® records which they have
Or Shy Swords which you. as Vice
