"The fastest growing district Le- gion organization in Gopherland," is the claim of Sixth Dfstrict Legion- aires who point to their virgin forests and streams and lakes and declare that the the Sixth sent just 6,000 men to mTny life, the coming development of Northern Minnesota will double the percentage of total veteran popu- lation and hen Minnesota's Sixth will be the strongest as well as the peppi- est bunch of Gophers in the North Star State.
