Working Hand in Hand With Re-
bpcctivc Communities Results in
Membersh p Increase.
Progress of the pin's of the Ameri
can Legion Is founded on the lelatmns
with the community in they are
located, according to tludliigs of the
national olllceis of the organization
fiotu it survey of posts shotting regu
lar membership Increase.
This survey was made In 22 states,
principally those of agricultural re
gions, and represented reports from
040 posts In towns with an average
population of 1 1 . 1 J;t persons. Kuril of
these posts has shown membership In
crease over that of the preceding vear.
Membership growth of these posts ha?
not been sporadic. It has been steady
and sure. Of the .'lO.i pusts fo nied .
101!), an average of :t(5 members win
shown. In 1!-( this average for .'S.".7
posts had dropped to 2S. The nest
year !1!M posts added one more to Hut
avoniire. In lit"-, the average for ti it)
posts Jumped to fiM and thus far tlio
(5)0 posts show an average of 02 mem-
hers. I
Reasons assigned for this growth
nre primarily due to Interest In civic I
affairs. A majority of post oiiircrs
say that membership has grown be
cause "they have sold the Legion to
the community!" Such posts have en
countered little opposition In their
live-year progress In Legion activity.
Actual accompl'shioents of the Le
gion show a multiplicity of move
ments, and a keen observance bv the
veterans of the needs of the commu
nities. The questionnaires show that
posts have built tourist parks nivl
camping grounds; thev have caused
city parks to be opened: some build
and mn'nta'n baseball parks and
clubs; others build cntnmuivJtv bathing
pools; a large number of posts have
caused plnvgrounds to be opened;
many have erected public memorials;
n few provide free band concerts by
T.eclnn musical orgiin'zatlons; some
plant trees ns n part of n conservation
program and for memorial purposes;
others mnlntn'n burlnl plots for de

foi uiation during the contest. One of
the surprising bits of iuloriiiutlou was
(lint the reason why many veterans
have not Joined the Legion Is because
they have never been asked to enter
the organization. Legion olliclals cite
this fact as a demonstration of the
necessity for a more uitlve canvass
of former service men.
Roth Knss and Kolhe signed up
scores of veterans for the Legion In

Owsley Favors Permitting Germans,
Austrians and Russians to Enter

Alvln Owsley, natlonnl commnnder

asked allied veterans to dismiss pas

plan to admit (ionium, Austrian and

Interallied Veterans' Federation.
"Surely there must be some way In
which we can speak to the men wo
fought and make tliem realize there Is
it better way of living among nations
than continuing battling one another,"
Commnnder Owsley declnred at the re
cent convention of the federation In
Rrussels. "How enn we wish to deal
with our former enemies if we haven't
the moral courage to get together In
peace? Maybe there has been no
change of heart nmong our former
enemies. Perhaps there never will be
unless we are men enough to under
take to carry to them our peace mes
sage. France and Relgluin positively
nre entitled to reparations, but hoard

prejudices will not bring the peace wo
earned by our victory."

he would favor admittance of tho men

Rich Fur Trimmings
Many New
Till! richness of each season's offer
ings In fur garments seems to
eclipse the offerings of the previous
season, and the same may be said of
the coats that use fur for the major
part of their decoration. The fact
that fur coats are onl.v comfortable In
extremely cold weather and that thev
areoiteti not at all practical for every
day wear, has made the demand fur
fur-trimmed cloth coats grow every
onr, and the designers have devel
oped these garment to a point where
they are the equal In point of rich
ness and beauty of the allfur coat.
In the Illustration are shown two
Coats of Camel's
coats of entirely different Inspiration
and use. The coat at the left Is a
semi-sports garment of camel's hair, In
a wide, brown plaid. The trimming
consists of a deep heaver collar and
lurge galallth buttons. The coat at
the right Is a more dressy model, of
brown chinchilla with collar, cuffs
and facing or brown squirrel. The
braid embroidery Is done In the same
color as the fur. The treatment of
the cuffs In this model Is woithy of
particular notice. This Is a develop,
ment of the mandarin sleeve and car
ries an ornament of galallth and braid
In addition to the fur.
For fur trimmings, fox. In various
colors, Is easily the favorite. Squirrel.
