"Wp nre service men nnd service
women. That Is our aim to lie nf

With those words Theodore Roose
velt, son of the Into ex-President
Roosevelt, summed up Ills speech on
tho alms and principles of the Amer
ican Legion, delivered before the
Chamber of Commerce of Cleveland,
O. Three things, ho declared, were
agreed upon In organizing the Legion.
That the Legion should be a purely
service organization with nh-oliitely
no distinction of rank between gen
eral and private, admiral and gob.
That the Legion must be non
partisan nnd must concern Itself with
policies, not politics.
That there must be no distinction
drawn between branches of service,
between those who served overseas
and those who waited nt home.
"Tho Amerlcnn Legion Is going to
bo the biggest stabilizing Influence In
America, In these disturbed times," he
snld. Ho clteii a letter from Ills fa
ther, written In 1018, In which the for
mer president predicted that the dan
ger In this country lay In the tendency
to swing from extreme to extreme
from radicalism to reaction and vice
To show that the Legion does not
care for politics Mr. Roosevelt pointed
out thnt the llrst national eomniiiiulor.
Colonel Llndsey, was a Democrat
"while I," he said, "am suspected of
being a Republican."
"The United States army," he con
tinued, "was n democratizing Inllu

Ho told of many Instances in his regi
ment to show the nbolltlon of class
distinction In the service.

bition 1. The Baptism of Jeous (,'l:i:i-17).
While the forerunner was discharg
ing his ollice, the King emerged from
Ids .seclusion nt Nazareth and de
manded baptism nt John'?: hands. The
incongruity of tills with the purpose
of baptism brought from John a tiro
test, but Jesus' explanation was satis
factory, so John baptized him. Touch
ing Christ's baptism, note:
1 Its significance. (I) Negntlxely.
(a) It did not mean his own obedi
ence to the coinniiindmeni of Cod, be
cause his entire life leid been lived
entirely within the will or Cod. Not
n moment In his entire life hut what
was lived entirely In accordance with
the Father's will, (b) Not because he
had sin, for he was absolutely slides-,
harmless, undetlled, cepnrato from
"sinners. Tills separation was so com
plete that even the devil could llnd no
occasion ngnlnst him (John 14:110).
(2) Positively. Its slgnilleance is
found In harmony with the central
purpose of his coming Into the world,
which was to secure for Ids people
salvation through death, burial and
2. Approval from the opened
heavens (vv. 10, 17). Immediately
following bis consecration -to his work,
tins heavens were opened nnd the
Spirit came and abode upon him, fol
lowed by words of approval from the
Father. These all were essential for
the work upon which Christ now en
tered revolution (heavens opened),
Inspiration (dove abode upon him),
nnd approvul (words from the Fa
ther). II. The Temptation of Jecus (1 ti
ll). This temptation was the opening
battle of the dreadful conflict between
Christ and Satan. In this struggle,
1. The combatants. (1) Jesus Christ,
the Divine Man. now entering upon
his mediatorial work. He went (Imme
diately from the plate of anointing
and heavenly recognition as the Son
of God to meet the arch-enemy of the
race. (2) The devil. He was a real
person tilled with cunning nnd malice.
2. The battle ground the Wilder
ness of Juden. The llrst man was
tempted In a garden with the most
pleasant surroundings and failed; the
second uinn was tempted in n hare
wilderness nnd gloriously triumphed.
n. The method of attack. Since as
our Redeemer Christ sustains a three
fold relationship, Son of Man, Son of
Cod and as Messiah, each one was
made a ground of attack. (1) As Son
of Mf n. Tills wus.li test of the reality
of his humanity to demonstrate as to
whether the humanity which lie ob
tained through the Virgin birth was
real. The appeal was made to the
Instinct of hunger. Hunger Is nat
ural and sinless. Having been forty
days aud nights without food, as n
normal mnn, Christ he.d a crcvlnft" ap
petite. While the appetite was not
sinful, to have satisfied It In n wrong
way would have been sin. (2) Son of
Cod. It was to test as to whether
tills personality which had taken upon
Itself humanity, was divine. The
devil quoted from u Messianic Psalm
to get him to presume upon Cod's
care. Cod does care for Ills own, but
to neglect common precaution to do
the uncalled for thing Just to put
Cod's promise to a test Is to sin and
fall. (,T) As Messiah. Christ's mis
sion as Messiah was to recover this
world from the ''evil. Now the devil
offers to surrender to him on tlio sim
ple condition thnt he adopt his
method, thus obviating tlio necessity
of the cross. The kingdoms were
really Christ's, and ho knew that they
would ultimately become bis. The
