MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, APRIL 10 193(5 THREE VETS OF FUTURE WARS ATTACKED Editor of Iowa Legionaire Says Consciousness of Inferiority Cause. DBS MOINES, (UP)--A broadside attack on the Veterans of Future Wars was launched Friday by Frank Miles, editor of the Iowa Le- gionaire. Miles, in an editorial published in the current issue of the veterans' magazine, said that most o£ the Veterans of Future Wars were "war babies," who "kept" their fathers out of military service in 1917-18. Hundreds of posts have been established in colleges throughout the country by the new organization, which asked for payment of an immediate bonus for participation future wars, and preference in political appointments. Wrote to Herring. Students at the University of Iowa wrote Gov. Clyde L. Herring that they are compelled to take military training, and have served as much time as many veterans who drew a bonus, yet never saw a battlefield. Herring chuckled when he heard of the petition, and said he would refer it to "future governors of Iowa." In his editorial. Miles said most fathers of the Future Vets were "slackers" and are among bitter en- emios of real veterans. Their attitude. Miles wrote, is caused by "consciousness of inferiority and resentment at having to pay their share of taxes required to pay for the disabled and dependents, and give all a measure of economic justice." Variants Are Described. Miles described variants of the original idea underlying the youthful organization. At one college, he said, a chapter of "Future War Correspondents" was organized, at another a post of "Future Chaplains," and at still another a post of "Future War Profiteers," who would have "a case of champagne under the table and a blond on the knee." Vassar college girls, he pointed out, formed a society ol "Future Gold Star Mothers," to demand "free trips to Europe to see the prospec live graves of their future sons.' Public opinion forced the group to change the name to plain auxiliary Miles said. "Insult to Mothers." The editor said that fun was fun but that organization of the latter group was an "insult flung al mothers of our comrades who made the supreme sacrifice." Miles intimated that the Future Vets were not averse to publicity. He referred to a picture of commanders of the University of Iowa post as "cute as a. little litter of kittens." The editor closed with a prophecy. "If the 'futures' go to war before the American Legion's universal draft proposal is enacted into law most of those who survive xvill do precisely what we arc doing, and some will wax wrathy at the jibes of youth." 50th Anniversary of Garner Pair Observed GARNER_Mr. and Mrs. Albert Riemer Wednesday celebrated their fiftieth wedding anniversay in their home here.
