MARCH 20 Hi 1931 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE ON LEGISLATIVE WORK OF LEGION! Charges Torgeson With Misrepresentation in Training Tiff. Lake HELEN HENUR10KS News Editor' Residence Phone 340\V OFFICE PHONE No. 239 LEE DEWIGGINS Circulation and Advertising Residence Phone 67 . After 10 years of signal achievements in service to its fellow men, the Legion can look forward in tha next decade to increasing responsibilities in guarding the principles of Americanism, in helping to procure constructing development of the nation's boys and girls and other important activities, Frank Miles, editor of the Iowa Legionaire, told a gathering of several hundred Legion and auxiliary members at a joint party in the armory Thursday eve ning. The speaker emphasized particularly the legislative accomplishments of the Legion, giving in detail the organization's recent battle to retain compulsory military training in state institution. This fight, which, he said, had engaged the attention of the state officers of the Legion for the past year cameHo a culmination Wednesday when the hoxuie defeated the opti'onal training bill Charges Misrepresentation. Mr. Miles charged the leader of the opposition, Representative S. R. Torgeson of Worth county with "deliberate misrepresentation" in con nection with the heated fight over the military training hill. Mr. Torgeson, according to the Legionaire editor, while on the floor of the house wrongfully quoted Commander Maurice Cahill of the Iowa Legion as expressing himself in favor of universal military training when questioned on the matter in the committee. i Mr. Cahill's answer to Mr. Torgeson's question in the committee as to whether he favored universal military training was that he favored "universal military training as it now exists," the editor contended. With this as his only basis Mr. Torgeson while debating the question charged Mr. Cahill with being a militarist, deliberately misrepresenting the Legion commander, according to Mr. Miles. Was Hard Fought. This battle was one of the hardest ever fought on a floor of the assembly, Mr. Miles stated. "Mr. Miles denied he ever made the statement that'those opposed to military training were either traitors or ignoramuses, as he had becu quoted. The Legion is interested in severa I . other bills before the assembly, the speaker stated. One of these pro " vides for ! the authorization ot an ;. increase in the amount of taxes for the soldiers' relief commission.
