Bodenhamcr, national commander of the American Legion, today issued an Armistice Day message to the people of America as follows: "Memories of the gallant service, performed by the men of America on the battle- fields of France, come flooding back today with an ever-increasing vividness. We turn back the pages of the past and live again those never-to-be-forgotten moments of victory I which brought unrestrained joy and gladness to the world. "The American Legion, composed of thr: men who helped make possible that great University and also on Ihe achievement of eleven years ago, is today engaged in the task of preserving and perpetu- ating in peace those same high ideals of service which inspired our men in 1917 and 1918 to stake their lives for their country. "Armistice Day has a peculiar significance lo the men of the Legion because it not only revives cherished memories but it serves to impress upon all veterans their duty of continued service to the nation. A day of joy though this may be, still il strikes hard the note of loyally which characterized the service of bur men in lime of war and which should characterize their service in lime of peace.

"Our celebration of this Armistice Day, however, would be lo no avail if we do not take advantage of the splendid opportunity it offords, lo pledge anew our allegiance lo flag and counlry, and to reflect upon the duties and obligations which we, as citizens, owe to the nation. Tlie lives, which were snuffed out ifi Ihe blaze of (he World War, will not have been sacrificed in vain if we dedicate our best efforts to the uplift of the nation and lo Ihe preservation of those glorious principles of freedom and democracy for which our comrades died."
