A STATE BONUS
Local Post Goes on Record
Favoring Bill After
Bonus proponents won tho battle
of words waged at tho Amercan
Legion meeting last night In the mu-
nicipal auditorium nnd Joo Carson
post by a vote of 64 to 13 went on
record as favoring tho bonus In
principle and by a voto of 50 to 20
instructed tho Oklahoma dep.irt-
ment executivo committee to sup-
port bonus legislation in this Mate.
It was ono of the stormiest ee-
fllons through which tho Tulsa post
has passed discussion veering now
and then Into tho realm of person-
alities nnd waxing so warm that tu-
mult reigned for several minutes at
a time. Horaco II. Hagan led the
fight In behalf of tho bonun propos-
ing both actions which were finally
adopted by the post while tho chief
speakers In opposition were Harry
U S. Hiilley Oerald O'llrlnn. W l
Kagloton Jr. and K. Fred Johnnon.
Bickering over parliamentary tuo-
ceduro added further complications
nnd adjournment did not come until
11 o'clock. The spirit of tho action
was directly opnoi? to n''ou tak-
en by tho post two years ago.
Adoption 1m nodi.
Hagan advanced as his chief argu
ment the cortalnty of tho passage of
a bonus bill in tho ntate nnd the
urobab Hty that the World war vet
erans would sponsor tho measure if
tho American legion did not. "This
bonus bill Is going to bo voted on
bv the neoole of Oklahoma and It Is
going to pass. It whs defeated only
by the silent vote at tlio last eiec
tlon. It had a majority of votes
cast on the Question nt the Novcm
ber election. It is a question of
whether the legion sponsors It or
th World war organization. If we
dont they will and they might
frame a discriminatory measure"
Ikintts I.h rinynl.
A reply that American Iyegion
men should nut take the Initiative in
asking for compensation even If
willing to accept it on tho people'.i
suggestion was made by K. Fred
Johnson and W. L. Eagleton tho
latter saying: "Let's not bo snif-
fling beggars. 1 can use) ft bonus
Just as you can but I'm not going
to bow down onhiy knees and beg
tho state government for some
canh." K. L. S. Halley began "I
don't feel that Oklahoma owes mn
a thing for my war service. Instead
I am a debtor to tho state for my
education and other things. Of the
80000 who went to war from Okla-

Oktahomai is a new stato and less

be tho effort of tho American Ixglon
to glvo something to tho stnte In-
stead of getting something from It."
