Believes It Is Destined to Play
Big Part in Affairs
of Nation
Governor Sproul's Words
In his address to the members of
the American Legion cantonment.
Governor Sproul said in part:
"I am-proud to have the oppor
tunity of joining in this important
occasion. When I call to mind the
part which I feel sure that the
American Legion will play in the
affairs of the nation and the affairs
of the world in the next half cen
tury, I cannot but regard this first
cajatonment of the organization in
Pennsylvania as a great historic
event and one which will distinguish
all of those who have participated
in it.
"One of the things which I have
hoped would come out of the war
is a union of spirit among our
younger Americans, those who will
play the main part in shaping the
policies and progress of the nation
during the coming decades. The or
ganization of this Legion is a long
step toward bringing about that
union, and the good that you can
do for your country and for man
kind by following your ideals as to
American policies and American
progress is beyond my adequate ex
Lands Grand Army
"When one thinks of what an in
fluence the Grand Army of the Re
public has been in the more than
fifty years since the veterans of the
Union Army founded that organi
zation one may get some impression
of what your and your organization
are to mean to the country during
the naxt half century. It is, indeed,
fortunate that a new union of Amer
icans, real Americans, Americans
who are ready and anxious to sacri
fice their all upon the altar of their
country's devotion, is coming into
being right now because, my friends,
we have great need of a militant
\jnion of American souls and Amer
ican spirit to-day.
"To those of us now in author
ity and whose only ambition is to ad
minister the duties of the places
which we hold in accordance with
our sworn pledge to defend and up
hold the constitution and institu
tions of our government, it is a great
comfort, a mighty encouragement
to know that an organization like
this, with the principles for Which
you have declared, is in existence in
this State and nation. You will have
advantage over the Grand Army of
the Republic in that while that
splendid organization has repre
sented the soldiers of only a portion
of the country, you will represent
the defenders of all of the States
and your activities and nfluence will
be nation-wide.
Post Offers Services
One of the touching things which
has come to me during the past few
weeks has been the effort of the frail
recmnant. of one of the great posts
of the veterans of the Civil War to
place at the disposal of my adminis
tration, themselves .and their re
sources in the preservation of law
and order in the Commonwealth.
These splendid old fellows, every
man of them now must be past the

allotted span of life, still have the
spirit and the desire to render serv
ice to their country in time of crisis.
Alongside of this there came numer
ous similar communications \from
posts of the American Legion, and I
can tell you it made me feel good
and it gave me confidence and cour
age to go about the things which I
knew had to be done to meet con
ditions which threaten the peace
and good order of the State.
Points to Politics
"I am glad, indeed, to see that a
motto of the American Legion is
'Policies and not politics.' I take it
that the meaning of this is that you
or your organization will, at no time,
be partisan but will always be for
those policies which you, as true
hearted and red-blooded American
citibens, believe are for the best in
terests of the country. But in fol
lowing out your policies you must, as
individuals take a hand in the poli
tics of your localites, of the State
and of the nation. I have been
preaching during all my public life
that our young people should take
a more active interest in their poli
tics, in the selection of those who
are to represent them in public of
fices and in the determination of the
policies which are to govern the de
velopment of our communities, our
Commonwealth and our country. I
hope, as individuals you will all
into politics. American politics, but
that you -will keep your organization
as you have started it, free from any
partisan slant or political bias.
Too Tolerant to Enemies
"One of the things which we have
to do in this country is to separate
the Americans from those who are
not Americans or do not wish to be
come Americans. We have been too
tolerant here, of those who are ene
mies of our country and of our in
stitutions. In our easy going way
we have allowed colonies of traitors
to exist in our land. We have cod
dled nests of vipers who would bite
the breast that feeds them and who,
at every opportunity, seek to inject
the .poison of anarchy and destruc
tion into our national body. We have
every consideration for those who
Take tablets only as told in each "Bayer" package.
The "Bayer Cross" Is the thumb
print of genuine "Bayer Tablets of
Aspirin." It protects you again 3t
imitations and positively identifies
the genuine Aspirin prescribed by
physicians for over eighteen years.
Always buy an unbroken package
of "Bayer Tablets of Aspirin" which
contains proper directions to safely
come here to help us in the develop
ment of our land—we welcome them
and encourage them to become citi
zens and to help us with our prob
lems. When they become citizens
they may have their influence in
shaping and determining the poli
cies of this nation, but if they will
not become citizens or are hostile
to our institutions and desire to de
stroy the Republic we should not
keep them here but should send
them back to the land whence they
came or to some other place in the
world where conditions may suit
them better. Surely there is suffi
cient variety in the forms of gov
ernment in the world now to enable
every restless spirit to find, some
where, a state which will suit him.
We must be very careful in the kind
of people whom we admit to this
country as sojourners and take ex
treme care in increasing our citi
zenship that our Americanism may
not be overwhelmed by those who
are not in sympathy with our insti
"On the other hand, our national
government, our state government,
and our community organizations
must do their part in remedying
abuses and bringing about better
conditions. There are lots of things
to be done in this State, althongh
Pennsylvania is one of the most en
lightened states uon the face of
the earth. We must encourage the
man who is ambitious along right
lines to rise to the realization of
his ambitions; we must have better
surroundings for him in his com
munity, better houses to live in, bet
ter schools for his children and bet
ter protection for his rights. The
State may do much in this direction
and we are going ahead with these
problems as fast as we can, but
public sentiment will do much more,
and especially public sentiment
when directed by a strong, patriotic,
militant Americanism such as is typi
fied by such influence as you boys—
you defenders of Americanism—may
wield individually and through your
