How long could you finance the necessary specialized care?

Ohiopylc National Legion Head Says Ludiow Bill Impractical UNIONTOWN, Jan. 27.--Enactment, of the principle of universal service to eliminate the greed motive' for fomenting war and defeat of the Ludlow amendment for a referendum on war to save the National defense were called major items on the 1838 program of/the American Legion by National/Commander Daniel J. Doherty of Botson In a ringing address on "Americanism" at LaFay- ctte Junior High School Tuesday night. Defining the Legion's No. 1 proposal of universal service as a measure proposed "for enactment into law thnt, if a government conscripts the lives of its citizens in the public defense it should also conscript the material resources and the wealth of the country for the same cause," Commander Doherty made a plea for support of the principle. Legionnaires from Conncllsville and practically every section of Fayette county. Western Pennsylvania and neighboring states heard Doherty in assailing the Ludlow amendment as "impractical," say that "it would tend to destroy our whole plan of national defense and without question would invite war." "What better way of preventing war is there than that of eliminating the causes that breed war?" he asked his audience. "One of the most prolific breeders of war is greed! When the porfit is taken out of war we shall have gone a long way toward preventing war. That Is exactly what the Legion is seeking to do by means of its proposed Universal Service legislation." Doherty emphasized that fact that the Universal Service legislation places capital, industry, all resources, services and manpower upon nn equal basis in the service of the nation in time of war. walks of life are banding together will go to the new National Foundation for Fighting Infantile Paralysis.

For Another Term By United Press WASHINGTON, Jan. 27.--Local unions,' from three states Wednesday presented eight resolutions, urging that President Roosevelt be drafted for a third term, to the 35th convention of thj United Mine Workers of America. Scores of resolutions from locals of John L. Lewis' own organization urged greater efforts to re-unite the American Federation of Labor and the Committee for Industrial Organization. Other resolutions however, endorsed the CIO's position in peace negotiations with the Federation. One resolution, presented by a Hanna, Wyo., local, demanded a rank-and-file referendum before further UMWA funds arc expended in the CIO drive. UMWA auditors reported yesterday the miners loaned CIO groups at least $1,200,000 between June 1 and November 30, 1937. Echoing Lewis' description of Mr. Roosevelt as "the only President who has given the common people a square deal," the third term resolutions were submitted by unions from Royal, Pa., Avella, Pa., New Salem, Pa., Uniontown, Ky., Rivesvillc, W. Va., Evcrcttville, W. Va., Scottsdale, W. Va., and Lochgelly, W. Va.
