WEDNESDAY. JUNE 22, 1927. GOUVERNEUR FREE PRESS PAGE THREE COUNTY LEGION i HOLDSBANOUET j AT LOCAL HOTEL * i Nearly 100 Present from All Parts of County. j State Commander Arthur T. Brundafe b Principal Speaker and Pleads for Continued Growth of Orfanixation. How the American Legion of New- York state had gained more than 4,000 members in the past year through the efforts of its officers and old members, was explained at the St. Lawrence county American Le- gion banquet here Friday evening by Arthur T. Brundage, state command- er. Commander Brundage made his annual visitation to the St. Lawrence on this occasion and addressed the gathering of more than 10U Legion- naires gathered for the banquet held at the St. Lawrence Inn in this vil- las- Members of the village board of trustees, the Town board of Gouv- erneur, a delegation of G. A. R. vet- erans, members of the Gouverneur Citizens' band and several invited guests attended. The banquet was presided over by Bligh A. Dodds of this village. Addresses were also given by other notable visitors, Including William Briggs of Ogdensburg. county com- mander; Thomas Bushnell of Mas- sena, county secretary; Rhoda Fox Graves, member of assembly from St. Lawrence county, and Silas W. Payne, commander of Erwin H. Barnes post, G. A. K. Commander Brundage, who was a member of the 107th Infantry, 27th division during the World war and a former member oT the state legisla- ture and sponsor of the $1,000,000 Brundage soldier relief bill which brought benefits to many veterans during times of distress, told briefly of the tremendous growth in the Legion ranks during the year since lie took office, which today stands at 67,000 members, and touched at length on the slogan which he sug- gested at the Buffalo meeting at \which he took office and which later 'was adopted as the National slogan, \Community Benefit.\ This slogan has been given much stress during the year and. he believes, is partly responsible for the progress made in gaining new ends. ! He told in an interesting manner of the growth of the Legion in New York city, especially in the foreign sections of the city where the red flag, rather than the Stars and Stripes, has been the real symbol in the past. On the last Memorial day. he said, hundreds upon hundreds of American Legion members, headed by state and national officers and even members of the National Con- gress, marched through the famous Ghetto quarters of the city and which event did so much to further the aims and principles of the Legion there. He called the attention of Legion j members to the forthcoming Legion Radio night which will be observed | throughout the state on July 12, at j which time 16 radio broadcasting' stations will join in a \hook-up.\ i The program, he explained, will be broadcast from the Roxy theatre, New York, and some of the best artists in the country will lend as- sistance in making it a great event. I He urged posts throughout the\coun-| ty to summon special meetings for that evening to hear the program. \The proposed visit of Legion- naires to France and Europe on their first official visit since the war,\ he declared, \although threatened at times by propaganda sent broadcast by enemies of the Legion, promises to be a tremendous success. \New York state will be represent- ed by more than 2,500 men and ap- plications still are pouring in at New Yo-k headquarters. Over 1,000 re- •4f\,}!} applications now are on file and \*\^' ' ier reservations are full to the ^anie&ndar Brundage took occa- „ sion fo vipress to Mrs. Rhoda Fox Graves, who had spoken previously, his appreciation for the work which the state legislature had done in as- sisting Legion members and the Le- gion as a whole in legislation and appropriations. He said he felt that if there was a genuine needy case presented the state felt willing to take care of it. He also went into the community benefit matter at length, stressing the great work which has been accom- plished during the past few months in furthering this means of getting to the people. He pointed out the great movement started at the time of the Florida hurricane and the more recent Mississippi floods in helping local police and fire com- panies in meeting the situations which presented themselves. Senator Caraway, who stirred the nation some time ago by publicly de- claring that the French were decorat- ing the graves of American soldiers ,in France, came in for severe criti- cism at the hands of Commander Brundage, who classed it as a part of the destructive propaganda which was being spread to Injure the Le- gion. He urged all persons visiting France to visit the cemeteries where the American bodies lie so that they might aee first hand the work that was being done to care for them fit- tingly. He paid high tribute to Colonel Charles Lindberg. American flyer He attended the reception given for him oa Monday last in New York and -' on Tuesday the official welcoming dinner and remarked how. in his be- lief, he had accomplished much to- wards healing Jie breach between Europe and United Spates which had grown up in the past few year?, and added that he fei: that the forth- coming visit of American Leg.on- naires would further the work start- ed by Lindbergh Several song? try the entire gather- tog and ?eiewt:onr by iadr-.^-jal members opened the banquet.

Ha read from a paper » ttst ot the potts in the connty ftaovtag tne per centage of increase in membership during the past year. He predicted a continued growth dur- ing the coiniug year. He was followed by Thomas Bush- nell of Ma^ona, who asked the mem- bers of the various posts to attend, if possible., the Tupper Lake session held Saturday. He particularly re- quested them to visit the Veterans' mountain camp there. Mrs. Graves then spoke, telling of her efforts, since she has been a member of the state legislature, to assist service men in any way pos- sible. She pledged her help in any future dealings and congratulated the St. Lawrence county organization on its increased membership. Commander Payne of the E. H. Barnes post, G. A. R.. of Gouver- neur, thanked the Legion for invit- ing him to attend the banquet, He said he had attended 61 G. A. R. encampments and regretted much to see the ranks depleting so rapidly. He classed himself as \one. of the younger\ veterans, explaining that he had enlisted when 15 years of age. His father, who was born in the year IS 0 0 also served in the Civil war.

Y. \Thou Shalt Not Pass\ is again being hurled at any enjajiy The battle line extends from near Montreal south along the Hud- son River Valley to New York city. The forces involved are the foresters and entomologists on one side and ' the gypsy moth on the other. The forests of the I'nited States are at stake, says the New York State Col- lege of Forestry, Syracuse University. 1 The battle front as Commissioner MacDonald of the Conservation Com- mission has said will never be short- i er nor more advantageous to the pro- i lectors of the forests. If the Gypsy I moth succeeds in passing the barrier j that has been established it will have access to the entire length and breadth of the United States. 1 New England has been waging a ' losing ri^ht against this destructive ' insect for twenty years. During that time it has spread fan-like north, west and south. It has crossed the , Hudson River and is headed west- ! ward. The losses from the depreda- i tions of the pest run into hundreds ! of millions of dollars. This is a battle in behalf of all the states. After the long fight in New England the largest infestations : in the history of that region recently j have been discovered. \The public can help in this work,\ said Dean ! Franklin Moon of the Forestry Col- \ lege. \Forests are becoming so val- ( uable that they demand protection ' from insects and all natural enemies. | Automobilists and campers in New ; England and along the Hudson River Valley should keep their eyes open | for moths particularly white winged moths, also deposits that resemble light brown felt or masses of fine, light-brown silk fiber. These may- be the egg deposits of the Gypsy Moth and the white winged moths may be the female of the species. j They or anything that resemble them should be destroyed. Moth eggs may be deposited in a few hours in auto- mobile, tent or baggage and carried miles into uninfected forests. The moth also may sometimes be recog- nized by the house it builds. In one j stage of its life cycle it draws several leaves together and binds them with ! white silken strands. Any clumps of i leaves thus bound together should be ! destroyed.\ LOCAL CLUBS TO COMPETE IN FOOD CONTEST { Members of Shakespeare and Travel- ers' Clubs Will Participate in State j Federation of Women's Clubs Cook- j inr Competition.
