GIVE THE MONEY
TO THE LEGION
Last November, the people of Ocala
raised a sum of money to provide the
wherewithal to celebrate Armistice
Day. As everybody remembers, the
day was a great success. And, we are
informed there was some money left
over we don't know how much. But
it was some hundreds of dollars.
Armistice day was for everybody,
but principally for the ex-service men.
There wouldn't have been any armis armistice

county boys, and their four million

some members of the committee ad
vocate using what is left of the fund
for some other celebration. It wasn't
given them for such a purpose. The
proper thing to do with the surplus is
to give their pro rata back to those
who gave it, or turn it over to the
legion. We don't think any of those
who gave expected any of it back, or
want it now. The Star is sure it
doesn't want the fraction of its
modest contribution. It would rather

but rather exceed itself in every re respect.

the size of Germany In area. Three

Russia and Germany. The Polish peo people
ple people are intense In their patriotism.
They are individualists. They are

is poor, terribly poor. The war
brought her to the point of hunger.
She is now facing starvation. She is
doing world guard duty. Her army is
holding closed the door of bolshevik
Russia. It Is an army made up of men
of zeal and determination. I have
never seen men sustain their spirit
under more trying conditions. Think
of meii without shoes facing the "Red"
army; hunger and cold attacking
them, but standing in their places
holding the front. When I was In
Europe in October, 1919, I saw this
magnificent army. Forty per centf of
them were without shoes. There were
less than 10,000 outfits for 350,000
men. They were hungry, they were
cold. Back home their loved ones
were not hungry, they were starving;
they were not cold, they were freezing.
Still these men stood at their posts. I
talked the matter .over with the chief
of state. General PilsudskI, and I shall
never forget the manner, the tone and
the. words of this Roosevelt of the
"Our army will hold the pass; the

We are without transportation facili facilities

"Help must come, and It must come
soon. Our troops are willing to fight

they are only flesh and there is a point
at which the finest spirit surrenders to
cold and hunger and pain."
Appeals were made to the peace
table for help. They fell on deaf ears.
Great stocks of clothing were locked
up in England and France while the
Polish army shivered at the bolshevik

hearts. sweethearts. Foundation for Silly Story.
This evil and unnecessary lie about
the bolshe"viks grew out of the fact
that in a little city, Ufa, a drunken
man made the proposal that they
should adopt such a plan. A group In
the town of Saratov, calling them themselves
selves themselves anarchists. Issued a decree In
April, 1918, containing among other
provisions the following:
"From March 1, the right to possess
women having reached the ages of
seventeen to thirty-two Is abolished.
"The husbands may retain the right
to use their wives without awaiting
'In cae of resistance, the husband
shall forfeit his rights.
"All women according to this de decree,
cree, decree, are exempt from private owner ownership
ship ownership and are proclaimed to be the
property of the whole nation."
It was unfair to charge this to the
soviet government. It was never put
in practice, and It Is only fair to say
that with the exception of the two
cases cited above, it was never even
contemplated by anyone. This libel of
the bolsheviks strengthened their
cause In the allied world. Months af after
ter after it was exposed the world
was swept with another evil, unneces unnecessary
sary unnecessary and false bit of propaganda. It
V7d complained that this second piece
cf news was Intended to corroborate
and confirm the nationalization of
women ; its open object was to create
hostility for the bolsheviks. It achieved
exactly the opposite result. It was that
the bolsheviks had decided to abolish
Christian names, that henceforth chil children
dren children would be named by number. To
illustrate, the first born would be
Smith No. 1, the second child In the
Smith family would be Smith No. 2.
and so on. This was given first-page
space In the press of the world. It
was printed as serious news, as truth.
It fell of Its own weight.
Summing up unrest in Europe and
in America, I have found that this
general course of conduct has caused
the people to increase their suspicion
of the political governments, of the
press, of the leaders of business and
Industry. These posed lies have mold molded
ed molded a judgment In the general thought
of the world, and that is that bolshe bolshevlsm
vlsm bolshevlsm Is being cried dwn, libeled and
slandered, starved, assaulted, and
fonght, because Its success meant the
death of special privilege and the
birth of the "New Order." This Judg Judgment

have not used our resources to bring
the real facts to the public mind ; be because

by unnecessary, evil and false charges
against the bolshevik regime.
