Legion Requests
U. S. Neutrality
At Convention
20th Convention Keynoter
Asks Democracy Not For
World But For U.S.
LOS ANGELES, Sept. 19.--(M)-The
men who helped to win tie World
War 20 years ago only to find out
later that it did not prove to be a
"war to end all wars," roared today
for a powerful armed peace and neu-
trality that will keep the United
States out of war.
The 20th annual convention of the
American Legion had for a keynoter
United States Senator David I.
Walsh of Massachusetts. He talked
of neutrality, national defense and
He gave the Legionnaires a com-
mand to move. It was: "The com-
mand is forward-forward, not for
world democracy, but for peace and
democracy at home here in America."
National Commander Daniel J.
Doherty reported that today there
are 972,933 members of the Legion.
He pointed to the Legion's American-
ism commission activities as "of
greater import now than at any timek
in the history of the Legion."I
Mrs. Malcolm Douglas, of Seattle,
national president of the women's
auxiliary, reported that 465,000 wom-
en members arebacking the Legion's
goal for preservation of Americas
"Before worrying about the fate of
democracy in other parts of the{
world,let us first safeguard democ-
racy here at home," she told the
cheering delegates.
The four day convention was
geared for action on policies and
plans without the usual problems of
election and selecting a next year
convention city. Preconvention ac-
tion found Stephen F. Chadwick of
Seattle unopposed for national com-
mander, and Chicago the choice for
the 1939 convention.

National Women's Golf Medal
Play Split In Driving Rainstorm

CHICAGO, Sept. 19.-(AP)-Two
stars from the South and West Coast,
battling gamely against rain, cold
and high winds which had most of
the field groggy, divided medalist
honors today in the qualifying
round of the 42nd National Women's
Golf Championship.
Playing water-soaked Westmore-
land course like the defending cham-
pion she is, Mrs. Estelle Lawson Page
of Chapel Hill, N.C., turned in a card
of 41-39-80, one over par.
A few minutes later Dorothy Tra-
ung of San Francisco sloshed off the
18th green with an identical total,
built on nines of 40-40, to share the
role of pace-maker into tomorrow's
match play competition.

ances blazed brightly through the re-
mainder of a dark, dreary day which
saw a score of highly regarded con-
testants put to rout by elusive par
and the elements.
. Only once was par bettered for
nine holes, and Mrs. Page earned that
honor. After slipping two shots over
par going out, she came home with
her one-under par 39 by virtue of
birdies on the 13th, 16th and 18th
greens, putting beautifully on the
drenched carpets.
Miss Traung, one of the finest play-
ers developed on the West Coast in
years, had two birdies and an eagle.
The latter was a spectacular three
on the par five 12th with two fine
woods and a nine-foot putt.
Three strokes off the pace was
Marion Miley, daughter of a Lex-
ington, Ky., professional. She had a
card of 41-42-83, a shot under the
totals of Maureen Orcutt, veteran
from Haworth, N.J., and two mem-
bers of the British Curtis Cup Team
-Clarrie Tiernan of Baltray, Ireland,
and Jessie Anderson of Perth, Scot-
Miss Tiernan, who remarked "It
was so cold I wasn't sure I had any
toes left," had nines of 42-42, with
Miss Anderson registering 43-41.
Ellamae Williams of Chicago, Betsy
MacLead of Williamsville, N.Y., and
Patty Berg, highly rated Minneapolis
Star, had 85's-with the field strung
far back from that figure.
Kathryn Hemphill of Columbia,
S.C., could do no better than 87,
while Mrs. Glenna Collett Vare, six
times winner of the crown, posted a
With the exception of Miss Tiern-
an and Miss Anderson, the remainder
of the British contingent lost de-
cisions to the weather and Westmore-
land's heavily trapped terrain. Their
scores were: Mrs. J. B. Walker, 88;
Phyllis Wade and Mrs. A. C. Critch-
ley, 90's and Man Steel Baird, 94.
Czechs Push
Defense Inland
Maginot Line' Stretches
To Nation'sCapitol
AUSSIG, Czechoslovakia (near the
German frontier) Sept. 19.-(I') -
Czechoslovak engineers have pushed
the army fighting line deep into the
interior rather than pin all defense
hopes on the strong frontier fortifi-
A year ago there were perhaps two
lines of heavy gun positions. Today
there exists a complex series of em-
placement entanglements w h i c h
stretch from the border all the way
to the capital. (Prague is 60 miles
air-line from this section).
Each section of blockhouses, anti-
tank lines and artillery battery sites
is a separate unit. Yet the entire sys-
tem is co-ordinated to cover the front
and both sides with a protective fire
if an invading army ever succeeds in
pushing across the northernmost zone
of the "Czech Maginot Line."
Beginning behind a series of bor-
der fortifications, the armored em-
placements cover the river banks and
hills and valleys. The highest are
atop mountain summits where com-
binations of anti-aircraft batteries
and observation posts loom against
the sky.
Field and machine-gun positions
nestle in excavated hill sides. Fore-

Work will begin at the same time on

The Union dormitories will be made
up of a series of "houses" such as
Allen-Rumsey. It has not yet been
decided how many men will be tak-
en care of in each house, but the whole
dormitory will be definitely divided in-
to these groups and each will have,

Borah Roars
For Isolation
Answers Blum's Plea With
'Hands Off' Policy
WASHINGTON, Sept. 19-()- A
roar of indignation came from Sena-
tor Borah, aging "Lion of Idaho,"
when he heard today that Leon Blum,
Ex-Premier of rance, had suggested
that President Roosevelt use his pres-
tige to help solve the European
"What such suggestions really
mean," he told reporters, "is that the
United States involve itself in Euro-
pean controversies and furnish the
money and men which may be neces-
sary in case of war.
"It would have been more in har-
mony with that national honor, so
often exemplified in French history,
had Mr. Blum given his attention to
the fact that France has a solemn
treaty with Czechoslovakia to come
to her rescue and, instead of advising
the United States as to her duty, had
advised his own people to courageous-
ly stand by their treaty.
"France was most instrumental of
all nations in creating the Little
Democrary of Czechoslovakia. She
later gave her a solemn promise to
come to her rescue in case of trouble.
That would seem to be the matter'to
which the Ex-Premier should give his
attention in this critical hour of
Czechoslovakia's life.
"The people of this country may
now look forward to a deluge of pro-
paganda seeking to involve the United
States in these controversies, and all
in the name of peace. They call it
peace to get us in. But after we get
in, it is war."
