PAGE 2 ....................................... I ................ I Amer0000 / I-L00 Leqion I / Corner I / National Commander MacNider&apos;s declaration that "The Strength of the Legion is in It's Posts," is daily being demonstrated by scores of Gopher Legion posts. Minnesota Legionalres are proving that quality and not quan- tity counts most in Legion affairs as in every other worth-while endeavor. Some of the smallest Gopher posts are the most virile, most helpful, most aggressive. They are always up to their ears in worthy community enter- prizes. As a result, they have their local citizens back of them--have won for themselves a place in the esteem of their communities. Strathcona is a little town of 200 people, in Roseau county, bordering on Canada. Last week when members of the Stratscona Co-operative Creamery Association held their annual meeting, Strathcona Legionaires served a hot lunch at noon to all who attended, without charge, the Legion Auxiliary .......................... ! :lucs<t of these members, will forward their dues to state and national head- quarters so that they may continue to :eceive the American Legion Weekly until they are in position to pay their yearly Legion dues without financial mbarrassment. "To make a bigger and better Am- :rican Legion," was the New Year 'esolution passed by members of Leo :;arey Post No. 56 of Albert Lea, Min- nesota, who lived up to it by initiating 5fay new members a week later, do- ing it according to the simple yet ;eautiful Legion ritual approved by ;he last national convention at Kan- sas City. Members of Leo Carey Post ;tan lively times for 1922. They own heir own Legion hall and sublet it :o other fraternal societies for dances and parties. THE CONSTITUTION. 3y Stafford King, Minnesota State Adjutant. Do you know-- That the American Legion is pledg- ed to defend the Constitution of the United States ? preparing t h e cake, sandwiches, doughnuts, coffee, etc., and the Legion boys standing the expense and fur- nishing cigars. The creamery men] publicly thanked the Legion for this helpful co-operation. Not long ago, when members of Strathcona post challenged local citizens to a whist tournament, the whole town stayed up till 3:30 a. m., to watch the finish, the Legion boys winning. Sister M. Olivia, superintendent of St. Mary's Hospital, Duluth, has writ- ten a nice letter to members of Osa- kis Legion post, thanking them for the $25 they mailed to her to provide good cheer at Christmas for the dis- abled buddies in that Duluth hospital. The money furnished a Christmas tree, Christmas dinner, and Christmas entertainment. Madelia Post No. 19, one of the How 9. Thru education, by example, and with force of arms if necessary. Why. Because men want to be free--free to work at the chosen vocations, to have their earnings for themselves, to establish homes, to have equal oppor- tunity, to see special privilege dis- carded and class rule swept away; becagse the constitution guarantees freedom; because it recognizes the rights of individuals; because it es- tablishes safeguards for themgreed, passion, and ignorance seek to tear it down. The parlor bolshevik is still active. The soap-box orator at his best. Too long have we been silent while treason has been taught in the home, in the school, and on the street. Legionaires ! Read the Constitution. Know the Constitution. Preach its doctrines.

I Amer0000 / I-L00 Leqion I / Corner I / National Commander MacNider's declaration that "The Strength of the Legion is in It's Posts," is daily being demonstrated by scores of Gopher Legion posts. Minnesota Legionalres are proving that quality and not quan- tity counts most in Legion affairs as in every other worth-while endeavor. Some of the smallest Gopher posts are the most virile, most helpful, most aggressive. They are always up to their ears in worthy community enter- prizes. As a result, they have their local citizens back of them--have won for themselves a place in the esteem of their communities. Strathcona is a little town of 200 people, in Roseau county, bordering on Canada.

Because men want to be free--free to work at the chosen vocations, to have their earnings for themselves, to establish homes, to have equal oppor- tunity, to see special privilege dis- carded and class rule swept away; becagse the constitution guarantees freedom; because it recognizes the rights of individuals; because it es- tablishes safeguards for themgreed, passion, and ignorance seek to tear it down.
