Legionnaires Will Sail From Seven
Ports On 28 Ships 'When Trip
To France Is Made
(By Associated Press)
PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 13. - "To
Paris in 1927" was the decision made
by the American Legion today.
Reaffirming the action taken at the
Omaha convention last year, the
legionnaires voted to hold the 1927
convention in the French capital from
Sept. 19 to Sept. 23, inclusive, and to
reconvene in New York on Oct. 18,
1927, to take action on all business
brought before it.
A motion by the Montana depart-
ment to delay the, vote on the Paris
recommendation 24 hours was over-
whelmingly defeated and then the
convention adopted the report of the
committee without a word of debate.
Some "nays" were heard when the
question of adoption was put, but they
were few and feeble compared with
the mighty roar of "Yes" that pre-
ceded the negative vote.
National Commander John R. M-
Quigg immediately took the floor and
addressed the delegates.
"By your affirmative vote," he said,
"you have committed the legion to one
of the most spectacular, one of the
most beneficial events in its history
a pilgrimage to Paris to visit the
graves of our fallenheroes.
"It behooves us to (do everything
possible to make it one of the most
gigantic successes the world has ever
seen. No event in recent times has.
the significance this event will have,,
internationally and for the legion."
The pilgrimage will be known as
the "second A. E. F."
The legionnaires will sail'from
seven ports pnd 28 ships with the
giant Leviathan as the flagship are
expected to be needed. The sailing
ports are Montreal, Boston, New York,
Hampton Roads, Charleston, Jackson-~
ville and Galveston or Houston, with
New Orleans a port of call.
Among those who addressed the
convention today were Senator Reed,
of Pennsylvania; Major General Le-
june of the marine corps;Rear-Ad-
miral Coontz of the navy, and K. M.
Landis, baseball commissioner.
Sir Walter I. Cowan, second in
command of the British fe'et, who is
in port on the cruiser Calcutta, was
welcomed by the delegates when he
and his staff appeared.gThe admiral,
in a brief speech, proudly mentioned
the fact that he was a member of the
British Legion which brought cheers
from the American legionnaires
Senator Reed, a member of the
legion, in his talk referred to the
mustard gas treaty.
"My hat, is off to the American Le-
gion for the firm position that it has
taken in opposition to that treaty," he
said, "and so far as I know there is
not an ex-service man in the Senate
who will not fight that treaty to the
very last ditch."
The senator spoke for law enforce-
ment. "If we legionnaires will only
demand that the policing of our towns
and our states shall be in the hands
of such men as were company com-
Manders and first sergeants in our
army in France," he said,'"and not in
fact, elderly gentlemen who hold the
job only for the pay they get, we are
going to get decent enforcement of
the laws against the crime of violence.
"The present disorder throughout
the United States is a disgrace to our

nation and our legion can, if it will,
make itself the greatest vigilance

London Bishop Disappointed At Lack
Of Young Peoples' Religious Ideas

Closing his three day stay in Ann
Arbor at an informal tea yesterday af-
ternoon in the Union, Rt. Rev. Arthur
Foley Winnington-Ingram, bishop of
London, expressed feelings of disap-
pointnient at finding so many young
people who had no definite ideas re-
garding religion. "Faith cannot be
found by merely poking about", the
lord bishop stated, "but must be
searched for diligently and under in-
The Bishop said that he had been
greatly surprised during his tour of
the States at finding so many people

who were "flitting about like so many
butterflies without any definite aims
or ideas regarding religion." St.
Thomas is the ideal which the doubt-
ers should follow, the Bishop be-
lieves, for he was sincere in his doubts
and left no stone unturned in his
search for the light. "The light wa;;
finally revealed to Thomas and he fell
down and acknowledged Jesus as his
Lord, God. Those of you who search
diligently will also find the same
light. Don't spare any trouble in
looking for it," were the Bishop's
parting words.

Vice-Presidential Opinion Of Primary
Voting System is Met With Strong
Denials As To Its Failure
(By Associated Press)



WASHINGTON, Oct. 13.-Vice-presi-'I
ent Dawes' advocacy of the abolish-
nent of the primary system in his
peech before the American Legion
ras assailed today by both Senator
Borah, Republican, Idaho and Senator
udwards, Democrat, New Jersey. At
,e same time, without mentioning
Dawes' address, Senator Johnson, Re-
ublican, California, issued a state-'
nent charging that nation-wide prop-
ganda was being conducted to break'
own the primary system.
"The idea of the people who want
.he repeal of the primaries seems to
e to make corruption of the people
a office safe," Senator Borah de-
"The primary is a guarantee of the
xposure of the use of large funds
whereas in the old days they used
normous funds and none knew it."
Senator Edwards objected that if
the primary is abolished at advocated
by the vice-president, "Vareism and
Smithism will be raised to the "nth"
degree in every state of the Union."
He declared the primary system
was just as perfect as any system of
government which is not infallible.
"The wanton primary corruption un-
covered by the Reed committee in
Pennsylvania and Illinois is an un-
preventable and incurable disease,"
the New Jersey senator added. "The
people themselves must be thir phy-
sician and legislator and the only
medicine they need is their vote."
Senator Johnson said, "This is a re-
markable thing and an astounding
condition that every individual who
spends money illegitmately in a di-
rect primary; every individual who
profits by the illegitimate expenditure
of such money and every individual
who belongs to a faction which seeks
to spend money illegitimately is in
full cry against the direct primary to-
The California senator said he did
not mean by this, however, "that the
direct primary was not opposed by
many who were entirely sincere in
their views."

ood, wholesome amusement, whether
n the theater, or the concert stage or

Miss Janis has written and directed b
most of her stage productions and has f
selected as her first program a num- -

NEW YORK, Oct. 13.-H-. H. Tota-
kyan, former imperial Persian con-
sulate-general was instantly killed to-
day in a fall from a window on the
seventeenth floor of the Yale club
across the street from the Grnad Cen-
tral station.
The window from which he fell was
in the hallway of the club building
and adjoining a room occupied by F.
Dudley Kohler, an attorney with
whom he had an appointment. The
attorney was not there when Tota-
kyan arrived, and the former consul-
general is believed to have been await-
ing him in the hallway. No one could
he found who saw him immediately
before the fatal plunge.
Police were inclined to believe that
the fall was accidental. Persons in
the streets who saw the body come
hurling through the air said two small
suitcases preceded it and police be-
lieve the cases fell from a window sill
and Totakyan lost his balance in at-
tempting to recover them.
Mr. Totakyan was about 60 years
old. He was appointed consul-general
in New York in 1909 and for many
years had been a prominent business
man in this city. He was Persian
commissioner and director of the Per-
sian and Ottoman exhibits at the
World Fair in Chicago in 1892 and
Persian commissioner-general at the
Panama Pacific exposition.
In 1909 he presented a silk jeweled
Persian rug to President Roosevelt
which was valued at $50,000 and was
said to have been one of the most
costly gifts ever given the nation by

an individual.
Mr. Totakyan was honored by Presi-
dent Taft with an autographed phot-
ograph and among his effects was
found a letter from President Wilson
