THURSDAY, OCTOBER C, 1932 BLYTHEV1LLE, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS SHE 10 KEEP . E. F. KIKE Leaders Are Keeping Up Organiza lion Work Among Jobless Vets. BY RODNEY DUTCUEK WASHINOTON-The bonus rmy. supposed to have bsen wlpsS out by a raid of federal troops here last July, lives on In a dozen or more national organizations and publications. Anyone who tiles to keep track of tliese various offshoots of the famous B. E. p. simply gets dizzy. Leaders of tlie bonus marchers were inspired to save something from the wreckage and build mighty movements thereon. They seek to recruit new armies from the veterans and the unemployed, working up new and changing programs for bonus cashing and general unemployment relief. Noticeable among all tlie organs and organizations is a great hate for Mr. Hoover, the Great White White Father \vlio fooled the -flag-waving bonus vets by turning tlie army loose on them. Two of the outfits have their national headquarters in Washington—the B. E. P. Rank and Hie of America and the Khaki Shuts of America. Each Ims organized scores of affiliated units over the country and reports the existence of various small camps or colonies which are miniatures of the camps the vets once set up 1n Washington. * * • The B. E. F. Rank and File aims to "unite atxl co-ordinate all veterans to promote political, social find economic justice." It urges bnus payment, five billion dollars for unemployment relief, five billions for public works relief, old age pensions, five-day week, unemployment Insurance and similar measures. Active membership is Umiled to veterans, but anyone with SO cents can apply for associate membership. In afctive command hera is Edward P. Atwell, leader, who commanded the Anacostia camp the night it was wiped out. About 30 .charters • have been granted for chapters over tr.e country. The B. E. F. News 1s still being published as an eight-page tabloid weekly, devoted to the cause ot unemployed. vets and others, bitterly assailing- Hoover and War Department officials and enjoying a wide circulation. It is ably edited by Joseph It. Heffernan, a former Judge who has to put his nams on the masthead to distinguish it from . " B. E. F. News" which is published and sold each week. Besides the two weeklies here there is "The B. E. F. Press' in New York, which publishes "The B. E. p. Crusader" as the "official crgau" and has'produced a took by George Kleinholz, former bsnus army national contact officer, called "The Battle of Washington—A National Disgrace." Another B. E. F. paper was published at Erie, Pa., but stopped. The Ghaki Shirts of America, which seems more actively interested in all the unemployed, Is headed by R. B. Ellison, another former B. E. F. national contact crrtcer. U takes B .E. F. members as a nucleus, gives them life memberships without cost, has a second class of membership for unemployed persons who promise to pay a dollar when they get jobs and a third class for those who can pay- new. Naturally, it is handicapped for lack ot funds. Recently they appealed to 48 governors to estab- !ish state camps for the homeless unemployed. Receiving no encouragement they have now addressed all American mayors urging a plan of winter billeting which will utilize vacant stores and buildings. The idea is (o maka such concentrations of the unemployed as plf-sustaiuing as possible, reduc- m S per capita costs of relief. Khaki Shirt units are urging the plan in their various communities. Other so-called national organizations grown from the B. E. F. exist, but the only one receiving any attention is still another Khaki Shirts, with headquarters at Kansas City. Unlike the Khaki Shirts oeforementioned, it is militant, has Fascist tendencies, wears brown shirts and is said to plan mass demonstrations this winter, although 'he program is vague. Membership is open to all, but its numerous officers must tc veterans. Archery Contests by Mall EEARSPORT, Me. (UP)—Penob- scol Valley archery chib members hold matches by mail.
