LEGION WILL GIVE
At Wednesday Night's Meeting an
Excellent Report was Made by
the Finance Officer
At the meeting of the American
Legion last night the entertainment
committee of the post was authorized
to arrange for a vaudeville perfor
mance at an early date, a banquet and
a public tall. A stage will be nlaced
in the armory on the drill floor for
the vaudeville and similar perfor-
ruances in the future.
The report of the finance officer
made last night showed that a ma
jority of the members of the post
hafe paid their 1921 dues, and seven
new members were reported. Those
v ho have not paid their dues have un until
til until February 28 only in which to pay
them, it was announced. National
Commander F. W. Galbraith Jr. has
stressed in the strongest terms the
in-porta nee of membership in the le
gion. The commander -says: The
Araencan Legion has undertaken
work in again rehabilitating
our disabled comrades in the hearts
cf the people of the United States
which means that the necessary con congressional
gressional congressional action on basic legislation
and providing adequate appropria appropriations
tions appropriations must be secured at the present
session of Congress.
"In the rehabilitation of our dis disabled
abled disabled comrades we are justifying our
existence not only in the minds and
hearts of every ex-service man and
woman, but in those of every loyal
citizen of the United States.
"This work and the other important
work which the national organization
has undertaken can not succeed un unless
less unless our membership increases and
dues are promptly paid. This is vital
to the success of the entire program.
The American Legion now has near nearly
ly nearly 10,000 posts and a membership of
a million and a half. As was pointed
out at the recent gathering of adju adjutants
tants adjutants in Palatka the ex-service man
and woman should join the American
Legion not for what the individual
get out of it but for what he or she
can contribute towards the ideals for
which the organization stands, for a

ed the following editorial
The editor of a contemporary, in
discussing the proposal to take fire
arms away from the people in order
to disarm bandits and robbers, ex expresses
presses expresses a fear that such action might
interfere with the constitutional right
of the people to 'keep and bear arms.
The right to which reference is made
is a quotation from the second amend amendment
ment amendment to the constitution of the United
States, which reads: 4 A well regulated
militia being necessary to the security
of a free state, the right of the people
to keep and bear, arms shall not be
infringed. It appears extremely
doubtful if this amendment to the
constitution was intended to preserve
the right of any individual to maintain
an arsenal in his home or to carry it
abroad. It surely did not mean that
any person should be encouraged to
keep weapons that would aid him in
the commission of crime. The fact
that the term, 'a well regulated mil
itia,' is used in the amendment would
indicate that the right to 'keep and
bear arms' is not an individual right,
but one of collective character, given
through a regular organization for
the protection of the state, as is plain
ly indicated by the wording of the
amendment. Bandits will get pistols
and other weapons for their thievish
and murderous uses, so the only plan
that seems to be feasible is to round
up the crooks and disarm them. There
is nothing to fear from law-abiding
citizens, even if they should provide
themselves with weapons in self-de
fense. The crook who is permitted to
i un at large will find weapons to car carry
ry carry on his criminal work, regardless of
any laws that may be passed."

MORRIS GEST BRINGS
SUIT AGAINST FORD
Chicago, Feb. 3. The praecipe in
a $5,000,000 damage suit against Hen
ry Ford and his paper, the Dearborn
Independent, was filed in circuit court
yesterday by Morris Gest. theatrical
producer, who alleged that an article
in the Independent on Jan. 22, 1921,
contained "libelous, slanderous and
false statements" concerning Mr. Gest
and certain stage productions he has-
handled. The article mentioned in the
suit was said to have attacked "Aph "Aphrodite'
rodite' "Aphrodite' 'and "Mecca" in particular.
terming them the "most salacious
spectacles ever shown in America.
Gest's attorneys here announced it
hadbeen planned to file similar suits
in Detroit today. The article which
was alleged to have been libelous was
quoted in the paecipe. It asserted
that the American stage was "under
the influence of a group of former
bootblacks, prize-ring habitues and
Bowery characters.' After saying
that "Mr. Gest stalks before his fel fellow
low fellow Jews as the most successful pro
ducer of the year," the article declar
ed that Mr. Gest was not a great pro
ducer, but a "great panderer to a
public whose taste he has been no
mean factor in debasing. Gest, it said,
sold newspapers in Boston and in
1906 was a member "of a notorious
gang of ticket speculators who were
the bane of the public. There is noth nothing
ing nothing in Gest's character to indicate
that he would ever contribute anv-
thing to the theater's best interests."

CINCINNATI CONCERN BUN
ON GOLDEN RULE BASIS
Cincinnati, Feb. 2 Since employees
of the A. Nash Co., a manufacturing
concern of this city, voted to take a
oluntary vacation if necessary to
give work to unemployed there have
been further developments in this
business which is being run on the
Ct'lden Rule basis. Mr. Nash outlined
tcday these recent steps:
"Business men of Chattanooga,
Tt nn., have become so interested in re results

Golden Rule to this business that they
have subscribed stock to open a Ten-
'Employees of the Cincinnati fac
tcry have bought into ownership to
the extent of $50,000 since opportunity
vas given them in January.
'Employees are so much interested
in the Golden Rule that they conduct conducted

church in January.
'Arrangements have been made to
conduct classes in business manage
ment and economics for employees.
"Business has expanded so much
since employees presented their peti
tion proposing they take a vacation
that a new shop has been opened.
"This growth has employed a large
number of men out of work and with
the reopening of activity for the
spring, the need of Nash employees
stepping out to make room temporari temporarily

Mr. Nash said he had salesmen in
many other cities and that the goods
of the firm were sent to nearly every

But the Golden Rule works right there
too. It has gotten us the business.
Through the period of depression as

prices we have kept right on growing.
"Incidentally we have written into
the charter of the Chattanooga fac factory

workers. The men who subscribed
