mother of the first American

entire credit for recovery of her
health to the well-known medicine
The following remnrknble endorse
ment of Tunlac wns Riven recently by
Mrs. Alice Ureshum Dodd, at the
Greshntn Memoriul Home, Gnvln Parte,
Evnnsvlllo, Ind., which homo was pre
sented to her by the patriotic people
of Indlann, as evidence of their appre
ciation of the services rendered to his
country by her son, Corporal Junius
B. Gresham, the first American soldier
killed In France. Expressions of sym
pathy were received by 'Mrs. Dodd
from all parts of the United States,
and the newspapers of the country
carried the story of the -first "wnr
The shock of her son's deuth re
sulted In the serious brcukdown of
Mrs. Dodd's health, but everyone will
learn with Interest and pleasure that
she Is now In splendid health again.
When seen at her home recently she
made the following statement, giving
the entire credit for her recovery to
the well-known medicine, Tanlne.
"After my dear boy's death I had
general breakdown In health," said
Mrs. Dodd. "At first It was Ju-t In
digestion. My food used to upset me
and I hod to diet myself very care
fully, which wasn't much hardship,
as I lost all desire to eat. Then I hnd
en attack of rheumatism, with severe
pains In my shoulders, bnck and arms.
Sometimes I used to suffer a great
deal, and my Joints would get all
swollen up and stiff. I was able to do
very little about the house, and at
times couldn't even cook a meal. I
got very nervous and restless, and at
night would lay awake for hours, and
lost many a night's Bleep as a conse
quence. A friend of mine had received a
great deal of help from Tanlac, and
It wai she who advised me to try It.
I am so glad I did for It proved the
best medicine' I have ever taken. It
soon gave me a good appetite and
seemed to settle my stomach so that
I was no longer troubled with Indiges
tion. I don't know what It is to have
rheumatic pains now, the swelling and
stiffness has all gone out of my
Joints and I am able to do the work
of the house with the greatest ease.
My nerves are now steady and strong.
I sleep fine at night, and I feel better
In health than ever before In ray life.
I shall always be grateful for what
Tanlac has done for me, nndj. shall
recommend It every chance I get."

IN PLEA FOR NEGLECTED MEN
Three Thousand Veterans From Le
gion Ranks Are Explaining Sit
uation to American People.
Thiee thoiiPiiml volunteer speakers
from the ranks of the American Le
gion In everv
state nre now
carrying by word-of-moiith
the Legion's sto
ry of the "suffer
lug, s h u in o fill
neglect unit In
Just lee" In the
the nation's debt
to the disabled,
whlch was con
tained' in the for
mal in o in o r I n I
which the Legion
has presented to l'reshlent Wilson,
I'reMdent-vleut Harding, and to all
members of congiess. Probably never
beHire In the history of the country
has such an tinny of nnitors been
mobilized to speak ut the name time
upon it single text.
The Legion alms to present to the
people of the United Slates the factn
regarding the disabled In the same
lunguuge as they uere presented to
the nlllclnls of the government. The
Legion's memorial wan carried to the
President at the White House by John
Thomas Taylor, vice chalrmun of the
Legion National Legislative commit
tee. National Commander F. W. Gal
brnttli, Jr., gave It to Senator Harding
at Marlon, where he had u long ami
important conference on tli.o disabled
situation with the next President.
The Legion denounces the present
method of caring for the disabled as
u "failure" which only can be lem
edled by the entire reconstruction of
the federal machinery dealing with
The functions of the three agencies,
which deal with the problems of the
disabled, the bureau of war risk In
surance, the federal bourd for voca
tional education, and the United
States' public health service, "must be
co-ordinated, their machinery decen
tralized and all three placed under
common control," the memorial states.
Ah an equally essential remedy for
existing conditions, the memoriul
urges the Immediate appropriation for
the use of the untiled organization
of a sum ample to build or rent a
suftlclcnt number of hospitals to take
care of the 10,000 ex-service men who
are unable to receive treatment at
present because of luck of beds and
The "failure" of the government to
afford justice to the sick and wounded
veterans Is attributed by the Legion
to "an astonishing state of .divided re
sponsibility nnd wasted effort among
the government agencies with which
the problem rests."
The brenk In the chain of responsi
bility occurs, according to the me
morial, as a result of the fact that
the war risk bureau Is under and re
sponsible to nu
ry of the treas
ury, an officer of
branch of the gov
the federal board
for vocational ed
ucation Is respon
sible only to con
gress, and Is un
der none of the
ments of the gov
ernment. The memorial
asserts that the
United States has been more liberal
than any other nation In Its provisions
for the disabled soldiers, but that It has
fulled In large measure to make these
provisions available In spite of the
benefit of the experience of other
nations In the recent war and the ex
perience of this nation In previous
"In the re-habllltatlon of n disabled
man there nro three needs medical
treatment, vocational training and
financial support," the memoriul
states. "The government has recog
nized the three needs, but overlooks
the fact that they are the simultane
ous needs of one man, not of three
different men or of one man nt thiee
different times. It makes three prob
lems out of whnt really Is one problem.
"Continuing this fuulty conception,
It bus given the problem over to three
agencies. All, by force of circumstan
ces, nro exercising functions they were
not Intended to exercise. This pre
sents an amazing spectacle of admin
istrative chnos, duplication, wanted en
ergy and conflict, which Is the key
to the present condition.
"The result Is tho suffering of the
disabled veterans, Thousnnds nre
waiting and have waited for months
for compensation for their Injuries.
Thousnnds hnvo waited for months
for an opportunity to rc-estnblb'h
themselves us sclf-sustnlnlug members
of society by vocational training,
Thousands are In need of hospitaliza
tion, nnd tho government has no hos
pital facilities uvallable for them. Of
tho 20.00C now In hoapltnls, 4,500 nrn
quartered In Institutions tin suited to
tho nccdi of tho men quartered there.
New hospital cases are developing nl
tho rnto of 1,500 a month In excess
of the number discharged. Sixteen
thousand beds nre needed now. Hun
dreds of veterans are tho object of
public nnd private charity. Afflicted
and penniless ".derails have been driv
en to refuge In almshouses and Jails.
Many have died, and If Immediate re
lief Is not forthcoming, more will
die destitute, without proper medi
cal can, without compensation with
which to obtain It, abandoned by the
country they tvrved. All this Is at
tributable directly to the manner In
which the government has adminis
tered tho affairs of the disabled.
"The bureau of war risk Insurance
Is responsible for the payment of com
pensation nnd for medlcnl mid hos
pital care of the man. Logically, this
would Involve, establishing contact
with the men nt the time of their
discharge from tho military or naval
service. It should then determine the
existence and tlegree of disability and
compensation on this basis.
"Due to the centralization of the
bureau's forces In Washington, It Is
practically Impossible under the pres
ent luw to establish contact with the
man entitled to these benefits. The
disabled man Is placed In the position
of n man Injured In Industry who
must sue the company. He must cur
ry on an Imolved and technical corre
spondence. It Is usually months af
ter lie Is dropped from the pay rolls
of the nrmy or navy before be Is tak
en upon tho pay roll of tho bureau,
even though his sen-Ice discharge
shows a definite degree of disability.
Un November i!0, lOUO, Sa.OOO cases
were pending In the bureau uwultlng
dellultc adjustment of compensation.
Thousauds tiro suffering and many
have died as a result of tills neglect
"The federal board for vocational
training will accept the evidence of
the bureau's1 medlcnl tiles gruutlng
compensation ns proof that a man Is
entitled to vocational training. The
bureau, however, will not accept the
evidence that the board bus awarded
training as proof that a man Is en
titled to compensation.
"If the eterun Is receiving com
pensation und wants training, usually
lie must take another physical exam
ination, administered by tho board to
determine whether the clalmuut has a
vo'cat tonal handicap entitling him to
training pay, or merely a compens
able disability grunting him training
only. If the veteran Is not receiving
compensation, due to delay by tho
bureau, he must be examined by the
board, to detennlno lib) eligibility for
training, as well.
"When a man enters training with
training pay, his compensation stops
and he Is shifted from the pay roll of
the bureau to the pay roll of tbe
board. The board, which was creuted
as a training agency only, has be
come a compensating agency as welL
Many men have been kept on the pay
roll of the board, not as a training
measure solely, but as a measure of
financial relief which they were en
titled to, but unubie to obtain from
"When a man Is dropped from train
ing he Is supposed to be dropped from
the pay roll of the board and taken
up by the bureuu. On both shifts
there is delay. The average length
of time for a man to bo dropped from
the bureau pay roll and taken up on
tho bourd pay roll Is about three
weeks. The average time required
for tho second shift bnck to the bu
reau puy roll Is two months. No pro
vision Is made for the man's muln
tenunco during these Interims. In the
majority of cases a man must under
go u new physical examination beforo
the bureau will again pay him coin
pensuton. In other words, he must
again prove his claim.
"The position of the United States
public health service Is pecullnr. It
took Its place In the re-habllltatlon
schemo poorly equipped for the work
It wns to perform, but was apparent
ly the best medical governmental
agency then available. It acts as an
agent both of the bureau and tho
bourd, but Is responsible to no au
thority common to both board nnd
bureau, because there Is no such au
thority. "In view of this condition the re
markable thing about the present re
habilitation program Is that it has
accomplished what little It has. Such
progress as has been mude Is a tribute
to the sincerity of tho men In tho bu
reau, the board and the public health
service who generally have made the
best of an Impossible situation.
' "The best of this Impossible situa
tion, however, has been Insufficient
always. This Is particularly true re
"Of tho t!0,000 men now In hospitals,
4,000 are In Institutions which nro un
fit because suitable hospital facilities
are not available."
The Legion avers that 10,000 beds
are needed ut once. Of this number,
1,500 ure necessary for transfer of tu
bercular patients from present unsat
isfactory hospitals, nnd 3,000 for
transfer of neuro-psychlntrlc patients
from the Inadequate lodgings which
they occupy now. Tho number of tu
