We hate our- "elves, but old New Orleans will echo to "We're From I-o-w-a" as our vic- orious Iowa thousands pass in review before our corn-fed commander next October." Gopher Newspaper Co-operation Appreciated. "Please extend to the several hun- tred Minnesota newspapers which are o-operating to such a remarkable ex- :ent with your Minnesota Legion News Service, the thanks of the National Officers of the American Legion," writes Lemuel Bolles, National Adju- tant. "The ideals and purposes of the American Legion are so identical with :he future prosperity of our country :hat they are worthy of the support )f all newspapers. Your Minnesota newspapers are making a great record n helping to make this a greater coun- try." Gopher Hat Is I,u the Ring. The big membership race between Iowa, Minnesota, and Nebraska is on! The Legion membership thermometer is rising rapidly toward the boiling point. So far, according to National aeadquarters records, Minnesota )s 111 the lead, with three times as many 1922 memberships remitted or as either Iowa or Nebraska. How long will Minnesota keep the lead? That depends on you, buddy. If you served honorably in the great war your Le- gion buddies welcome you to member- ship. Our hat is in the ring. Hun- dreds of Gopher Legion post adju- tants all over he North Star State are working their heads off signing up buddies.

Minnesota Eighth District Legion Celebrates. At its last monthly meeting Minne- sota's Eighth District Legionaires eIected J. T. Nolan of Gilbert as Dis- triet" Commander for 1922. The meet- tng was held at Gilbert. The Gilbert Legion Auxiliary served a wonderful banquet. Immediately after the busi- ness session, Miss Grace Constance of New York City charmed the hearts of the delegates by her specialty danc- ing. Later it developed that Miss Constance was none other than the famous "Izzy" Sher, Hibbing Legion- ire, who did much to advertise Min- escta, at the Legion National Conven- tion in Kansas City. Comrade "Izzy" was eIected 8th District Adjutant. Next meeting will be held at Coleraine January 21. Each post and auxiliary unit will be represented. More than 250 attended the meeting at Gilbert. :Eighth District Encourages Athletics. To encourage conscientious study combined with athletic prowess among the boys and girls of Northern Minne- ta, each American Legion post in the Eighth Minnesota District will lresent an American Legion cup or metal each year to the member of the local high school who excells both in athletics and in scholarship. The pre- sentation will be made the occasion for a suitable ceremony. Duluth Legion Form Hockey Team. Legionaires of Duluth, Minnesota, nothing if not enthusiastic sports- mun and athletes. Especially in win- ' do they glory in the fray. This ,cal" their Legion Hockey team is triting history for "Minnesota" and ghe "Legion"--writing it across Amer- ica. They beat Eveleth's Champion 1921 Hockey team two straight, went to Winnipeg and licked the Canadians twice, then to St. Paul where they played the two most sensational hock- ey contests ever staged there, before ,the biggest twin city crowds which wer gathered to witness such an event. Both teams, in both games, were tied at the end of the regular session, and in the supplementary period necessary to decide the issue, St. Paul wan both games by two lucky luts. Now the Duluth boys are off for Cleveland, Pittsburg, Boston and Philadelphia to defend the reputation they have gained for all that is manly and sportsmanlike in the athletic life of America. The Legion emblem ap- pears on eery man's uniform. Their Gopher buddies bid them God-speed. Iowa Legiaaires Challenge Minn. State Commander Daniel F.
