Previous to October 15 this rate was good in day coaches only. Much credit is due our Minnesota senators and representatives, who helped us secure this big concession from the railroads of the northwest. Read this from the Fairmont Tknde- pendent: "The American Legion boys entertained Fairmont business men I and citizens last week, and helped I Fairmont folks to better understand I the aims of the Legion. Co-opera- I tion like this helps Fairmont retain t its reputation as a city of boosters"; and then consider that after turning] over a $25,000.00 city-owned building/ to the Lee Prentice Post for sixty Reduced fare certificates necessary to obtain this low rate to Kansas City, should be secured thru the local Legion adjutant, or direct from Le- gion State Adjutant, St. Paul. This certificate, when presented to local ticket agent, secures purchase of ticket to Kansas City and return at one cent per mile. You may ride in day coaches or chair cars, or pull- roans, but of course there will be the usual extra charge for chair or sleep- ing car service. Ask the local agent to be sure to have the low in- structions, so he will have no hesi- tancy about granting this new low rate, when the time for your trip ar- rives. With the threatening railroad strike which has been called on all roads in the country, to start on October 30. and which if not called off means par- alysis, for a time at least, of all trans- portation, the question naturally pre- ;ents itsetf--"How would Ortonville be affected in case of a strike lasting for a week or more?" Summing up of the situation locally reveals the fact that the people of this community would not be put to any hardship due to a strike if it lasted but for a short period. The fuel situation, with the predic- ted cold weather in view, might be considered alarming if it were not for the fact that there is an abundance of corn which can be burned as a sub- stitute for coal. In fact it is already in demand in many localities. If the demand for coal increases slightly from the present requirements the supply now on hand in the differ- ent local dealers' sheds will not hold out longer than a, week, according to statements made by the dealers in an interview today. Supplying of groceries in all prob- abilities would be the principal diffi- is a oad eight-room house on the place :and a barn. Inquire at the ofttre of A. B.

That Legionaires of Minnesota are not ungrateful or unappreciative of the generosity of the communities in which they live is voiced in many let- ters received at Legion State Read- quarters, which show that practical- ly every type of fraternal, civic, and commercial organization, including Masons, Elks, Knights of Columbus, Foresters, Hibernians, and Moose, have placed their halls at the con- venience qf local Legion posts. Noth- ing could more clearly illustrate the fact that every race, class, and creed are linked together in the Legion for the common good of comrades, and for the honor of God and country. Reports from Minnesota Posts show that they are on the job to see that their ex-service buddies get justice. Of course, the big task falls to the "big three", Legion bureaus in St. Paul, Minneapolis and Duluth but some of the smaller towns have Le- gionaires who are far rom asleep. The Legion band will burst forth, "Hail, Hail, The Gang's All Here," and off we go to the biggest conven- tion in history to marci.'n the big parade of 50,000 Legionalres, behind Marshall Feeh and General Pershing.

Ask your local ticket agent to tell you what the one cent per mile rate would be from wour home town to Kansas City and return, via. nearest connection with specialtrain, and mail a checl for that amount to Igion Adjutant, St. Paul, not later than Oc- tober 25. In return you 5rill receive a "Prepaid Order for Ticket" and a reduced fare certificate, which when presented to local ticket agent, will secure your ticket. culty because the quantity carried by the general stores of the country is usually limited on account of the fluctuation in the market. This, how- ever, is not expected to cause the housewife anxiety in the event of a general tie-up but it might put her to much inconvenience in searching for n6w recipes and would perhaps cause an early demand for her canned edi- I bles. It is not at all likely that the strike / will be called, according to latest re-] ports, but if it is, everyone here can rest in comfort until settlement is upon. The Way With Lots of Us.

Wadena Minnesota Legion post, with a membership of 150, has paid all running expenses, subscribed for magazines and" urchased flowers for ex-service patients in the nearby san- atorium, provided a military cere- mony and expenses for the funeral of an ex-service man who was not a Le- gionaire, and placed $2,000 in its building fund. This money was raised hy putting on home-talert plays, lyce- um courses, and a two-day celebra- tion July 4th and 5th. It secures em- ployment for every buddy who. needs it. Commander Ben aunders is now busy with plans for an Armistice Day program and winter entertainment. On October 15 more than 600 Min- nesota Legionaires had sent word to the State Adjutant, thru their local Legion adjutants, that they wanted hotel accommodations in Kansas City during the big national convention October 31 and November 1 and 2. About 100 Legionaires from Wiscon- sin and an equal number from North Dakota and Montana hve reserved seats on special trains from the Twin Cities to Kansas City. At the rate applications were pouring in to Le- ion State Headquarters, about twelve hundred Minnesota Legion and Legion Auxiliary members will make the trip to Kansas City, the majority of them on Minnesota Special trains.

Previous to October 15 this rate was good in day coaches only. Much credit is due our Minnesota senators and representatives, who helped us secure this big concession from the railroads of the northwest. Read this from the Fairmont Tknde- pendent: "The American Legion boys entertained Fairmont business men I and citizens last week, and helped I Fairmont folks to better understand I the aims of the Legion. Co-opera- I tion like this helps Fairmont retain t its reputation as a city of boosters"; and then consider that after turning] over a $25,000.00 city-owned building/ to the Lee Prentice Post for sixty Reduced fare certificates necessary to obtain this low rate to Kansas City, should be secured thru the local Legion adjutant, or direct from Le- gion State Adjutant, St. Paul. This certificate, when presented to local ticket agent, secures purchase of ticket to Kansas City and return at one cent per mile. You may ride in day coaches or chair cars, or pull- roans, but of course there will be the usual extra charge for chair or sleep- ing car service. Ask the local agent to be sure to have the low in- structions, so he will have no hesi- tancy about granting this new low rate, when the time for your trip ar- rives. With the threatening railroad strike which has been called on all roads in the country, to start on October 30. and which if not called off means par- alysis, for a time at least, of all trans- portation, the question naturally pre- ;ents itsetf--"How would Ortonville be affected in case of a strike lasting for a week or more?" Summing up of the situation locally reveals the fact that the people of this community would not be put to any hardship due to a strike if it lasted but for a short period. The fuel situation, with the predic- ted cold weather in view, might be considered alarming if it were not for the fact that there is an abundance of corn which can be burned as a sub- stitute for coal. In fact it is already in demand in many localities. If the demand for coal increases slightly from the present requirements the supply now on hand in the differ- ent local dealers' sheds will not hold out longer than a, week, according to statements made by the dealers in an interview today.

That Legionaires of Minnesota are not ungrateful or unappreciative of the generosity of the communities in which they live is voiced in many let- ters received at Legion State Read- quarters, which show that practical- ly every type of fraternal, civic, and commercial organization, including Masons, Elks, Knights of Columbus, Foresters, Hibernians, and Moose, have placed their halls at the con- venience qf local Legion posts. Noth- ing could more clearly illustrate the fact that every race, class, and creed are linked together in the Legion for the common good of comrades, and for the honor of God and country. Reports from Minnesota Posts show that they are on the job to see that their ex-service buddies get justice. Of course, the big task falls to the "big three", Legion bureaus in St. Paul, Minneapolis and Duluth but some of the smaller towns have Le- gionaires who are far rom asleep. The Legion band will burst forth, "Hail, Hail, The Gang's All Here," and off we go to the biggest conven- tion in history to marci.'n the big parade of 50,000 Legionalres, behind Marshall Feeh and General Pershing.

In return you 5rill receive a "Prepaid Order for Ticket" and a reduced fare certificate, which when presented to local ticket agent, will secure your ticket. culty because the quantity carried by the general stores of the country is usually limited on account of the fluctuation in the market. This, how- ever, is not expected to cause the housewife anxiety in the event of a general tie-up but it might put her to much inconvenience in searching for n6w recipes and would perhaps cause an early demand for her canned edi- I bles. It is not at all likely that the strike / will be called, according to latest re-] ports, but if it is, everyone here can rest in comfort until settlement is upon. The Way With Lots of Us.
