URGES A EL SUPPORT FOR
STRONG DEFENSE FORCE.
San Francisco. — Mr. J. R.
Klawans, chairman of the na

Veterans of Foreign Wars.* urged
the delegates to the AFL con
vention to support a program
to develop the best Navy an 1
strongest air force in the world,
and to continue sufficient Federal

In a message of greeting to the
convention f nom the Veterans
of Foreign Wars, Kiawan.s askpd
for AFL support of the program
advocated by his organization.
“These two great organiza
tions,’’ the American Federation
of. Labor and the Veterans of
Foreign Wags, of the United
States, who- have marched
shoulder tcshoulder during >the
stress and strain of war must
continue to march together dur
ing these dangerous times.
“Our national defense requires
that we serve in peace as in war.
With the shadow of the atom
ing over the troubled world, it
has become essential that we
unite to give our country the
biggest, toughest and most ef
ficient air force in the world,
[t is our hope that you will join
with us in supporting this pro
bomb and directed
*‘We cannot permit our air
piano manufacturing industry to
pass out of existence because we
will be the first target of any
future enemy and we will not
be given the opportunity, nor the
time, to create another “Arsenal
of Democracy.” War is like a
poker game, the second best hand
is no good. Let’s see to it that
we have the best air force in the
world and the strongest Navy
in the world, as these are our
first lines of defense.
“We have one other primary
objective—to see to it that the
United States of America, the
richest country in the world,
carries out the .obligation de
scribed by Abraham Lincoln in
the words: “to care for him
who has bared ' his breast to the j
enemy and for his widow and I
“Rehabilitation of our disabled I
comrades necessitates constant j
vigilance on our part against,
those forces who, under the guise
of economy, art* always attempt

ates, for whom the war will never
end, of the pittance allowed them.
In the past, your organisation
has supported us in our fight for
a decent allowance for those dis
abled men and their families. We
hope you will continue to aid
us in this continuous battle.’*
