INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., Nov. 11.— O. I-/. Bode'iihamer, national command-i ei' of thr; American L,e,giein, today issued an Armistice day message to the' people of America us follows: 'Memories of thn gallant set-vice, performed by the men of America on the battlefields of France, come flood- Ing back today with an ever-increasing vividness. We turn back the pages of tho past and live again those never-to-be-forgotten moments of victory which brought unrestrained joy a.nd gladness to the world. "The American Legion, composed of the men who helped make possible that great achievement of ele;ven years ago, is today engaged ,in the task of preserving and perpetuating in peace those same high of service wliich inspired our men In 1917 and 1018 to stake their lives for their country. 'Arinisticu day has a peculiar sig- nlllcance to the men of the Legion because it not only revivers cherished memories but it serves to impress upon all veterans their duty of continued service to the nation. A day of joy though this may be, still it 'strikes hard tho note of loyalty which characterized the service of our men in time of war and which shoulel characterize their service, in time of peace. "Conceived out of the common interests of those who served, the spirit of The American Legion today is' the spirit which spin-reel our men to noble deeds on tho Jlelel of buttle. The Legion Is justifying its exlste;nco with a program of good cltzonship, with untiring devotion to the care of our disabled comrad-fl'and dependent children of vutcrmui, advancing the principles of Americanism, and giving un- selllsh service towards the betterment of our city, state and nation. "Our celebration of this Armistice day, however, would be to no avail if we do not take advantage of the splendid opportunity it affords, to pled go anew our allegiance to flag and country, and to reflect upon the duties and obligations which we, as citizens, owe to the nation. The lives, which were snuffed out in the blaze of the World war, will not have been sacrificed In vain if wo dedicate our best efforts to the uplift eif tho nation and to the preservation of those glorious principals of freedom and democracy lor which our comrades died." A greater nnd more lively interest bee-ama manifest In the treasure hunt being conducted by 100 merchants of tho city in conjunction with the Altoona Mirror. Tho unique contest offers tho opportunity to secure additional funds for tho coming Christmas season with Its offering of numerous oash prizes. There is yet time for any number of entries, for the hunt does not close until next Saturday. A large number of people, ranging in age.s from 15 to 50. went on a hikim; tour of the city In quest of the merchants entered, the number and the necessary letter. Their visitation to the various stores resulted in a greater Interest in tiie hunt and indicated that thero are already hundreds of entrants anxious to capture one of the cash prizes. There are enough of them offered to make the venture worth while. During the day some of the merchants were kept busy in giving the information necessary for tho contestants to /111 out their blanks In solving the easy problem presented by the hunt. 'The general public has awakened to the importance of the treasure hunt and today there will be more entrants In the contest. It is an easy way to get some additional Christinas money. Some answers have already been Hied, the canvass of the stores being completed in two days' time. Every person has time to get into the contest, to se;cure) blanks and make a circuit of the city to fill out their answers. All have an equal chance to finish among the cash money winners. The Mirror, to make it convenient for contestants and new entrants, today is the treasure hunt. It will make it easy publishing on page 2, an entry blank, with complete' instructions concerning for entrants to make the canvass of merchants, to properly secure anel enter tho information required in preparing their answers and to bo among those standing a chance to be among tho winners. If by chance prospective entrants fail to get a copy of today's paper they can secure blanks on calling at The Mirror office. There is time for entrance into tho contest as it does no; close until Saturday, Nov. 16. With a little hustling the stores can bo visited and tbo blanks filled out arid entered in the hunt. It's an easy way to get additional Christmas money. < COUNT SHOWS WHO WON JN ELECTION Burgesses and Councilmen In Boroughs and Auditors In All Districts to Receive Credentials This Week.
