A5~3t The Indianapolis chamber of com-' mevce is raising a fund for the erec-; tion, of a wai^ memorial building' to be the perma-; uent national headquarters of the American Legion which, with appropriations by the city, county nod state, promises to run to several, million dollars. "Every citizen of the city of In-' cliannpolis and every organization owes a debt of appreciation and gratitude to the men who so ably anil persistently, and skillfully carried on the campaign for Indianapolis," said Charles F. Coffin, president of the In-; diannpnlis chamber of commerce, wliici; contributed to a fund to send a large delegation to the Minneapolis cov-.ves- tion. "There is obligation v ns well :is nn opportunity iipon the citizens oi Indianapolis to show that they all an- preeiare'rtlie significance of "the- fare! rliat Hie heinlqiiarte'rs.o'f .the groat or- ganisation ;i!'e to be permanently lo-.

A plan is now under.consideration tr. purchase two city blocks lying between two parks which would clear a plaxfi between the city post office on the south nnd the city library on the nortli -which the now memorial buildivg would .face. „ .... Russell G, Creviston, director of the organization division of the American Legion at national headquarters, Indianapolis, has "been loaned for that purpose by the War. Gump Community service, with which organisation he served as executive secretary in Minneapolis, prior to his affiliation with the Legion. A Hoosier by birth, Mr. Creviston enlisted in May. a 017, in Company E of the Fourth Indiana infantry. He served as a prlvare in this company for three month's when he was elected as a candidate from his company to tiie second officers' warning' corps at Fort Benjamin Harrison, Indiana. •Commissioned as a first lieutenant of infantry, be was given complete charge of the administration cb-ordiiui-' tion section. pn April 5, ]OTS, he was selected by the committee on -education and special training to help in the organi- sation of'a vocational training system. In tliis connection, he was transferred' to the inspectors' division and given charge- of the states of Iowa. Minnesota, Nebraska, North and South.Da- kota, whore he established various student army training corps. Upon the completion by the war department cf the S. A. T. C. movement, he was transferred to the general staff and put in charge of the ninth district commission on training camp activities, with station in Kansas City, Mo. In this capacity he coTered nine states of the Middle West, during whi'ch time he was charged with the bettering oC conditions within the 'camps and non-camp cities that bear direct relation to the demobilization period. He was discharged .Tune <7, 1010, and accepted a position with the, War Camp Community'service; IS COMMANDER OF NEW POST Corporal Bute Presides Over Recently Formed Organization at Walter Reed Hospital. POPPY AS MEMORIAL FLOWER Taooma (Wash.i Pos^ Adopts Resolu. tion Urging Flanders Fields Blossom Be.fvlade Official. A request has been received ' bj Franklin D'Olier, national .commandpi of the Araoi-icnn Lepion, to have th? Shirley poppy adopted as the memo rial flower of the Lesion. The veqnesl originated with the Eclwnrd B. Rhodes Post No. 2 of Tacoma, Wash., -whidl has ncloptftl a resolution favoring the adoption of the poppy. The resolution adopted by the Washington post was as follows: . "Lost we. in the day's work, snr minified liy home and happiness: f orjre our oonmifles who sleep in France 'and here in the arms of the mother land: "I.esr WB forget 'that greater love of those American hoys who 'gavi their lives for their fellow men,' "Lest we forfret that 'In Flantlen Hflils Hie poppies grow, amons tlu fi-o-isos, ro-.v on row,' and that nature «f:eins tn have raised in these simple- llowevs the most eloquent monument— i waving scarlet blessing over theii .craves: "Be it resolved, Tiiat the Edward B Rhodes post, American .Legion, -inaugurate a nuivoiucnt to have the Shirley poppy adopted as the Memorial flowei of the American Legion.

In a letter recently received by Mr. D'Olier. Corporal Bute said: "I very much suspect that you will be surprised to know that we have formed, a very good post of the Legion here at the-hospital. Two hundred and sonic signed the lirst night and It. is near the four hundred mark now. J expect to have the post 1,800 strong by the first of the month. "You niay expect to hear some peculiar resolutions from us, hut I am going to ask you to give us credit for wanting to hc!p in any way possible ourselves and .our brother comrades .who have been back in civilian life for some time." PLAN IS ENDORSED BY LABOR New Jersey Unions and Labor Paper Editor in Favor, of Americanism Program. The Charles Henry Tost No. 20 (New Brunswick, N. S.f secured_the active co-operation' of the local unions •of tha American Federation of -Labor in the Americanism program which has been worked -out by that post. Members of the post Americanism committee first-explained in detail to the editor of the labor paper what their aims arid plans were. They •asked his help in. advancing the cause o'f good citizenship and he not only publicly gave his editorial support, but - offered space; in his paper for • publicity they -wished for their work. Members of the committee also went to the heads of. various unions, anrt explained their .aims .and plans of '•campaign. The labor leaders, . who were all patriotic Americans, tlnisiastie in their support of the legion's plans and at one o'f the early meeting's of all the labor unions ; the "committee -presented- tin oritiine of the Americanism work, for which they wish to obtain -the'assistance of the unions. . .
