ON CROSS-CONTINENT FLIGHT
J. W. Jackson Made Tour of Twenty
Five States Boosting Next Con
Starting on a cross-coin. neat air
plane High'., on two hours' notice,
would dampen the enthusiasm of most
udvance og'iits, but .1. V. Jackson,
anxious to S. in the lP-i' American Le
gion convention for San Kranclsco, an
swered "Let's Co," when the summons
came, stepped into a naval plane with
half a dozen apples lor provender and
started a little air journey that cov
ered 'S states and part of Mexico. And
San Kranclsco, exploited by his
achievement, did got the convention.
The San Francisco Legion commit
tee laid careful plans to capture the
majority of the votes at the last Le
sion gathering In New Orleans. Jack
on volunteered to travel to the Cres
cent City by plane, provided a pilot
and plane were furnished, and scatter
S. Ki propaganda, after the same fash
Ion that aviators scattered leaflets
over enemy trenches In the late fracas.
The steering committee nccepted
Jackson's tender of services and set
uhout getting the plane. Nothing came
of It. Jackson gu up the Idea and
bought his round trip railroad ticket
to New Orleans, lie was about to
leave his home for the railroad station
when a telephone message Informed
him that Senator lllram Johnson had
obtained the air equipment for the
journey. Jackson gathered tip a few
apples, put on some tleecy clothes and
gave up his lower berth to a lady.
San Kranclsco swept the delegates
off their feet by Its appeal and there
was no hesitancy about naming It the
convention city. Then Jackson, scorn
ful of railroads, decided to go on to
the eastern seaboard, advertising his
native city by the Golden Gate, as he
went. The plane took him to Wash
ington, then back through the Middle
West, ncross the Heckles and hack to

The following poem, written by
Stafford King, adjutant of tlio Minne
sota department of the American
Legion, Is popular with Legionnaires In
all parts of the country:
When the American Hair was created,
God, In Ills liillnltu wiHilom,
lllcsscd It us a oyml'il of freedom,
lnxi-.ruil it us a tlilnK of beauty,
And wrote It Ueop within his book,
"A Melody of Service."
It Ih fashioned
With the gold und the Kleam of the stara
Against the vaulted azuro of a summer
It Is uiuiced with the sheen of a silvered
Upon the pure, Mveet snow
Which Kleams from tlio lily's petals;
And striped with tho crimson llama
Which leaps and fiances
From the buby's heart.
Within Its blue and white and red
Is enfolded all thero la
Of liberty, Justice and democracy.
Sanctified to us by blood and tears;
Which (thine throuuh sacrifice
Like cIlstonliiB pearls
Beneath tho wiftly undulating waves ol
And blood of men who died,
As One who has died upon tho cross,
That other men Might live.
To such a IUik Americans can say:
"Whither thou goeat, I will bo,
And whither thou lodgeat, I will lodga
Thy people shall be my people,
And thy Clod, my God."

BOY GOOD ESSAY WRITER
Gene Haver, Vlcksburg (Miss.) Young
ster, One of National Contest
Of all citizens of this country the
American Legion values the good opin
ion of none more than the boys of
grade and early high school age; wide
awake youngsters, still hound by affec
tionate ties to dogs and swimming
holes and pirate caves, hut beginning
to take an unfeigned Interest In math
ematics and history ilnd composition.
Of such Is Gene Haver of Vlcksburg,
one of the prize winners In Mississippi,
In the recent national essay contest
conducted by the legion.
Girls and boys were Invited to write
on the subject: "How can the Ameri
can Legion best serve the nation."
First prize was won by a young lad
of Chinese extraction, of Hawaii; sec
ond prize by a school girl In Indianap
olis; third, by an American lad of
Italian blood In Ilrldgoport, Conn.
Gene, Haver'.s essay was adjudged
one of the best submitted by young
Mors below the Mason and Dixon line,
He was of the sort the Legion wunto
to reach an outdoor hoy, with a pun
for a pal; but u studious youngster,
withal, lirst In his class In many sub
jects. Despite his accomplishment as an
essayist, Gene aspires to be a civil
engineer, be says.

Rehabilitation of Former Service Men
Making Rapid Progress; Some Not
Rehabilitation of the former service
nen in the hospitals of the state of
Arkansas Is making rapid progress,
and tlie auxiliary members of that de
partment express themselves as well
pleased with existing conditions and
the constructive plans wjilch are being
executed by the hospltul management,
Hod Cross workers, etc. especially at
the United States oteruns' hospital
at Fort Hoots, which was recently
visited by Mrs. Juiuea H. Urooks, de
partment president of Aifcansas.
Mrs. Brooks was well satisfied with
conditions and remarked upon the
noticeable Improvement In u number
of the patients. However, she una
much concerned over the fact that at
! least .'10 per cent of the oxsorvico men
patients were not receiving compensa
tion, and because of this, are denied
many little things they crave, particu
larly their "smokes."
This Is a field for work for tho mem
bers of the auxiliary, both in the de
partment of Arkansas und other states.

THE DECISION OF DEATH
TVTOW, when the Mur.ltou created the
Ited Man to rule over the world ho
created him in hl own lump1 and
made him walk upright with his eyes
to th- sk -and he was not forced to
watch his feet, as were the beasts.
I'.ut when the Ited Man was created
and bad Ihod for oars In the peace
ful valley the Manltou found that he
was too strong ami too brave and that
he had been creattd too much In the
Image of the Maker of us all. So Iih
decided that It would not do for tho
Hod Man to live too lorn.', else he
would become as wise and as great in
So one day the Manltou appeared
to his daughter, tlie mother of the
lied Man, and to her he told his fears.
And us a remedy he suggested that
the Ited Maii he allowed to '' only
for an allotted span of years, and
that then he hu supplanted by Ida
children und his children's children
until time ended.
Hut tlrst he thought he would give
the Ited Man a chance to determine
how lie was to live. And so. In com
pany with his daughter be went to tho
valley, where lived thv Chosen People,
and be culled forth the wisest tnd old
est chief of them' all to be the Judge.
In his one hum! he took n hulTalo
chip and In the other u stone ami
with the chief and his daughter he
went (( the bank of the stream to make
First he tossed the buffalo chip Into
toe stream and the chip lloated for
invblle until It struck the rapids and
then It submerged for a little way
uud again It lloated and again It sub
merged, until finally It disappeared
from sight around a bend in the
And so the Manltou ruled that tho
Hod Man should live for four yours
and then die ami remain dead for four
jours, following which he would again
come to life for a similar period. And
the old chief was pleased mid nccepted
Hut the daughter of Manltou. tho
mother of all the Ited Men, was not
pleased and pleaded with her father
that somo other arrangement might
be made. And the Manltou, who loved
his daughter dearly, listened to her
pleading and agreed that there should
lie one more test made and that tho
result of that test should stand for
ever, and the method of the test he left
to his daughter.
She, seeing that the Manltou hail
not yet thrown the stone, and thinking
that perhhps the stone had some magic
unknown except to the Maker of us all
suggested that lie throw the stone In
The Manltou, taking her at her
word, tossed the stone far out Into the
stream, ami It fell with a splash Into
the water and sank out of sight. And
thus was the fate of the Hod Men de
cided. The Manltou ruled that each Hod
Man should live In the valley an n"i
lotted span of years, and that then ho
should die and his body should perish
from the earth and should never mora
come to life In the valley.
Hut lu order that the Ited Men
should not bo hopeless and forlorn ho
pwmisod tbat those of them who kept
the faith ami pralou the Manltou ami
his good work should live again In tho.
happy hunting ground above the Peak,
where there would be no death and
where there would be no war and no
trouble. And so the ruling stood. Tlio
Ited Men were made mortal, to dlo
when their time came, but knowing
of the promise of Manltou they felt no
fear of death. And so It Is today. Wo
all must die, but living well, we llva
again lu that great hunting ground,
where till Is happiness and peace.
Note. This legend bears a marked
similarity to a legend of Death told by
the Hlackfeet and credited to Nabl, tho
seinl-huinun God of earth, who, nc
cording to the Hlackfeet, is a second
ary god to Manltou himself. Grlnuell
in his "Hlackfoot Legends" hns quoted
this story, although no mention Is mado
of the after-life and the test Is mado
In a distinctly different manner.
