HEROES: The Legion Strikes A Blow

The American Legion struck Isolationism a ruinous blow last week—a ponderous, powerhouse, meat-ax crusher. The repercussions of the Legion's action in its 23rd annual convention would echo for many months in Congress, the press, the homes of U.S. citizens. In convention at Milwaukee the Legion:

> Agreed that the present objective of the U.S. is "the defeat of Hitler and what he stands for."

>Gave wholehearted support to the Roosevelt foreign policy.

> Asked repeal of the "socalled" Neutrality Act.

> Asked removal of the ban on sending A.E.F. outside the Western Hemisphere.
