Principles of U S Plans in Crucial Convention Address CHICAGO DONS GALA GARB FOR LEGION GUESTS CHICAGO STADIUM CHICAGO 111 Oct noncom batant war veteran must take his chances with other citizens in earning a living President Roosevelt declared today in a straightfrpmtheshoulder speech carrying his economy fight before the members of the American Legion Mr Roosevelt spoke boldly in his crucial address before the Legion con vention which had potcntalities of cither winning the veterans whole heartedly or arousing revolt against the Presidents drastic compensation cuts He laid down three principles in dealing with the veterans and de clared that his policy of financial re trenchment was imperative if the country is to thrive His principles were responsibility for those that suffered injury or disease in the war special class of beneficiaries over and above all other citizens aid for nonconnected service disability cases but only when all other agencies fail The fact of wearing a uniform does not mean that he the veteran can demand and receive from his government a benefit which no other citizen receives the President de clared It does not mean that be cause a person served in the defense of his country performed a basic obligation of citizenship he should receive a pension from his govern ment because of a disability incurred after his service had terminated and not connected with that service In thanking the Legion for its loyalty and service he appealed for unity and the elimination of sec tionalism and class If the spirit of sectionalism is allowed to grow strong or to prevail it means the end of national duty and of patriotism he said You and I are aware of the simple fact that as every day passes the people of this country are less and less willing to tolerate benefits for any one group of citizens which must be paid for by others You have been willing to fight for the benefits of American life You have been willing to live for Ameri can unity You
