|AOE TWELVE TUESDAY, SEPT. X, 10M Legion Takes Time Out From Business for Huge Parade ST LOUIS (AP) — The American Legion thrust aside national convention conflicts and routine today to parade for hours through downtown streets. For many Legionnaires it was the highlight of the four-day annual convention — the chance to display colorful uniforms replete with even more colorful decorations. It was the day for «veryone to h»v« i good tira«. Put »side for the day were the expected Hoor fights over the Air Force budget cuts and this nation's participation in the United Nations. ITiow tesues probably will come up tomorrow. A sprinkling of notables, including Vice President Richard M. Nixon, Joined th« veterans of three wars—World War I and II nnd the Korean conflict—in the parade ex pected to take 10 hours to pass. Traffic in Uie area was blockei off and streetcars and busses to the downtown area rerouted. In addition to the veterans uni formed groups of the Legion Aux lliary and Sons of the Legion took part. Also marching were units o the Army, Navy. Air Force, Ma Tine Corps, Coast Guard and Na tlonal Guard. Military planes flew overhead at intervals. Three hundred bands and drum •pd bugle corps supplied the music. Evolutions Attack V-N. Each of the 48 state departments had delegations in the parade. Also represented were departments from Canada, Mexico. Prance, Italy, Puerto Rico, Canal Zone, Hawaii and the Philippine Islands. Several resolutions have been introduced attacking the United Nations in varying degrees. One, calling for outright U. S. withdrawal from the international body, came before the Ohio delegation but was voted down by that membership. A former national commander of the Legion, Donard R.. Wilson of Clarksburg, W. Va., put into words the feeling of some delegates yesterday. "Make sure that it (the United Nations) doesn't eventually give •way your children, your rights, your citizenship and your flag," LITTLl LIZ— V The best way for a man to get : o woman to listen to him is to talk real low to some other woman. he said in a speech. He didn't advocate American withdrawal from the U. N., bu said the Legion should make sure "the American people learn tha you cannot fight a war by air conditioned committees made up of people who either are not American or are anti-American." Nixon yesterday defended the ad' ministration's cut in Air Force iunds, an issue criticized in anoth er resolution submitted to the Le 1 cuts meant "no interruption, lag and no setback in aircraft production." Campaign Stepped Up HE said that under the new budget this nation will have more planes than planned by the previous administration and this wil] be "accomplished without waste or duplication." "You can't separate a sound national economy," Nixon said. Speaking of Korea he told the delegates that with the shooting now over it is this nation's obligation to build "a lasting foundation of peace. "Let's recognize right now that the decision to go into Korea was right because the Communists had to be stopped," the vice president said. On this issue President Truman was right and he deserves credit for making that decision." Campaigning for the job of na- .ional commander of the Legion was stepped up as time for ballot- ng came closer. Delegates will pick a successor- to the present commander, Lewis K. Gough of Pasadena. Calif., Thursday. Half a dozen were in the contest but Arthur J. Connell of Middle- own, Conn., nnd Lawrence J. Fen- of Chicago appeared to be he leading contenders.

The 2i - year - old victim, fled screaming through her yard with her oclthes blazing after the unidentified man attacked her in her home in this south Alabama town.
