Janet Rae and Kathi Mae of Poplar; brothers. Cyril and Henry ol Poplar; sisters. Mrs. Earl Blevins of Poplar. Mrs. Jo* Doomek of Wolf Point. Mrs. Med Wood of Twin Bridges. Mrs. O. T. Rasmus-m ii of Mount Vernon. Wn. and Mrs. Charte* Caaactea of San Le-undro. Calif. and mailed by the Department Rehabilitation Committee of the Auxiliary, enabling the veteran, at no charge to himself, to have a ..giving" Christmas. The Saboes carried gifts to the shop. Christmas dinner tray favors. rmit oocket novels to the hospiUil from the Poplar unit The Dept. Rehabilitation chairman for the Legion carries on a year long program at the hospital, conducting parties at holidays, contacting veterans' families and Legion posts, when a veteran is admitted as a patient to the hospital. Mrs. Saboe reported. Twice a week "Cheer-carts" make an appearance on the wards, and cigarettes, candy, shaving supplies, reading materials and other items are given free of charge to the patients. These services are made possible by funds provided by .the Legion. The Industrial School has been a special project of the American Legion Auxiliary under a system where individual Auxiliary units "adopt" certain boys, remembering them on holidays and birthdiyj with gift packages of clothing, candy, games .and pther items. Many of the boys at the school are veteran's chidren. or have r.o families to take a personal interest in them. The Poplar Unit has adopted several boys in the last ten years, and has carried on correspondence with each boy. An increase of 15 percent more new members in the American Legion than at this date last year hiis been recorded in the state. Saboe staled. The Legion's program on the promotion of Americanism is credited with this increase. A larger increase of farmer members has also been noted and is directly related to the National Legion convention's stand against the col-lectivist trend in current agricultural policies in the United Stales today. Saboe continued. So a membership challenge has been made concerning the Department of Montana. If Mrs. Esther Iholts has a bigger perent of American Legion Auxiliary members at denartment convention time, she will receive a white poodle from the Department Commander. If he wins, with more Legion members, she will give him a gallon of ripe olives.
