Many a buddy has been "for- getting to rcmember" to pay his dues for 1922. relieve his trou_l! ccnsdenee o .July First? And in a. dition to reinstating old members an(t  enrolling new ones, let's take the st-- seription of citizens, c!ubs, libra-ie:,t etc., to :'eccive the American Leion : Weekly at $'2 uer year. Circu.atz:n is as vital to the weekly as member- ship is to the Legion. And the weekly will help folks to understand and co- operate with us in our plans 1or t,e good of our communities and America. In making a success of the big Le- gion membershio drive July 1st..Mb> nesota posts will use posters, lantern slides, attvertisements, and will build booths on the streets to catch the Gophers.

Tfisi means ten cups for the state. Instead I of one for the. whole state, there will I be one for the best post in each di- I trier.

But if the First and Second are la- borip4: urn!or the delusio' that their gathecings contain all the pep of Go- pherl:md, they're mistaken.

Who said the Minnesota Le- gmn is a bunch of dead ones? Up not%h, however, in the land of tall pines, sks blue waters and iron ore, Legionmres of. the Eager, Ear- nest, Exhube,'ant Eighth are at a loss to understand why all this fuss about a bi yearly gathering, when their ;ana' hoht numh bigger meet- ings not only once a year, but onc( a month.
