LEGION (Continued from Page 1> to set up a new auxiliary to be known us "fathers of American Legionnaires." Dr. Louis H. Bauer, president of the American Medical Association, appealed for Legion support in the A. M. A. fight against national compulsory health insurance Gen. Lemuel C. Shepherd Jr., commandant of the U. S. Marine Corps, told the Legionnaires there Is "nothing small about the Korean War." He credited the vitality of the Marine Corps Reserve as largely responsible for accomplishing "the impossible feat" of the butld"- up of strength early In the Korean War. and a hard-righting lieutenant were credited today with clearing the way for Second Division troops to drive Red troops off the crest of Old Baldy. The 23rd Infantry Regiment's A Company was pinned down by heavy Communist mortar and artillery fire on a finger of the hill. Cpl. Victor Espinoza, El Paso Tex., and his squad leader gathered all the hand grenades they could carry and charped toward the crest hoping to knock out some of the Red puns. The rest of the company Rave as much supporting fire as" possible from their heavily shelled positions. Squad Leader Hif The squad leader was hit on the way up. Espinoza administered first aid, grabbed more hand <rrenan>s and an automatic rifle and stormed back up the hill. This lime Lt. VV. F. Vaughn, his platoon leader, went with him. Together they knocked out two bunkers and Espinoza silenced a machlnegun with his rifle. "It was so dark you couldn't see the Chinks until ydu were only a few yards from them." said Espinoza. "Sure was a funny feeling to be close enough to hear them breathe and not be able to see them." Sfc Rebel L. Holcomb. a 6-foo!,-3.

"They must have been hopped up because they didn't seem to mind dying. I'll say one thins, though, they defended that hill like It was their last rice partdie." Vaughn Wouniicil Vaughn was wounded and from then on it was Holcomb and Espinoza They threw every hand grenade they had and when their supply-was exhausted they picked up enemy grenades and tossed them. Espinczi placed an explosive charge in a Red-held tunnel. "We went from bunker to bunker." said Espinozi. "We knocked out . morlars, machlneguns, burp guns and everything they had,': guess." After the two had cleared the ridgcline, the company moved to the top of the hill. Company A Joined Company er, English. Miss Elizabeth C. Pylant, science; rs.

"To me this Is the type of Va- triolisrn' which is. In Dr. Johnson's phrase, the last refuge of scoundrels." The Legion speech was the opening gun In Stevenson's big bid for Eastern support in the November election—and It was to be followed by a busy round of speeches and political confabs in New York and New Jersey. Last night at his Springfield, 111. headquarters, it was announced Stevenson will begin a 7,600-mile tour Sept. 5 which will carry him into nine Western slates. One Reference to Ike Stevenson made only one reference in his speech to Eisenhower. He said: "The fact that a great general and I are competing candidates for the presidency will not diminish my warm respect for his military achievements. Nor wil: that respect keep me from using every honest effort to defeat him in November." Stevenson praised the Legion for its fight to awaken America to the need of military preparedness— and he said this fight largely is won. But h« warned there are other tasks we dare not neglect. "It is our high task." he eaid, 'to use our power ivit^ a sure hand and a steady touch—with the self-restraint that goes with confident strength. The purpose of our power must never be tost In the fact of our power—and the purpose, I take It, Is the promotion of freedom, justice and peace in the world." With the Courts Circuit Court!

'•Unfortunately, the rumor that, clover worms feed on bean pods lias been spread and has caused much undue alarm," the county agent, stated. "This Is not true. Clover worms feed only on leaves and. loo, they are much lighter feeders than their cousins, the cotton leaf worms."
