THE MONROE MONITOR--Monroe Washington i ..... 91 ST VETERANS TO Friday, October 2, 1925. HOLD 3 CONVENTIONS Tfllrlk -- II IJ I Next Year. SAVES YOU  e,d,, DEPARTI'i-ENT STORES Portland, Or.  Three conventions MONEY EVERETT, WASHINGTON will be held by veterans of the 91st division next year, according to a de- cision reached at the business session of the Powder River boys, at their convention here. The conventions will be held at Seattle for the northwest veterans at Oakland for the northern California association of the division and at Los Angeles for the southern California boys. The date will be September 25 and 26. The decision to hold three conven- tions instead of one was made owing to the fact that it is difficult to get the ex-members of the organization to- gether for one convention since some of them are compelled to travel such long distances. It was decided to hold a national convention, however, every five years and the invitation to hold the first of these in San'Francisco in 1928 was: accepted. As a result of the decision to di- vide the division association into three parts and hold three conventions in- stead of one, three sets of officers were chosen. William McKay of Seattle was chosen president of the Northwest or- ganization, James I. Herz of San Fran- cisco, president of the Northern Cali- fornia organization, and Guernsey Frazier, president of the southern Cali- fornia group. " $30,000,000 NEEDED BY DRY LAW FORCES Washington, D. C.--Congress will be asked to apropriate about $30,000,000 to enforce prohibition and narcotic laws for the year ending June 30, 1927. This was made known at the treas- Ury in connection with the completion of hearings on the prohibition budget. Eleven million dollars was fixed specifically for administratio of the; Volstead act and a similar amount to l balance expenditures in 1925 and 1926. Approximately $11,000,000 more will be sought for law enforcement activ- ities of the coast guard, while several million dollars will be added to the de- partment of Justice budget for opera- tions incident to dry enforcement. There is a possibility that an addi- tional appropriation to make perma- nent the all-Atlantic coast rum patrol will be authorized, Assistant Director W. H. Lord said. SEPARATE CORPS DESIRED Army Air Pilots Testimony Favors An Independent Organization. Washington, D. C.--Six army pilots, each a major in command of an im- portant activity of the air service, lined up solidly in favor of an in- dependent air corps in the army, de- claring it. offered the best means of promoting the nation's air defense and also in/alleviating a condition of unrest now existing among the air personnel. Testifying before the president's air board, the. officer pilots declared a seeming lack of consideration by the war department of aviation mat- ters was the underlying cause of ex- isting dissatisfaction among junior of- ricers, but emphatically denied they were "muzzled" by the department from expressing their personal views. Colonel William Mitchell Tuesday resumed his onslaught against the nation's air policies before President Coolidge's investigation board. The army air service, the colonel declared, is not adequate to meet an emergency, and many changes should be made in the army organ- ization, including the establishment of separate artillery corps. Present equipment of the air serv- ice is described as of an antiquated type, in deplorable condition. Italian Debt Party to Sail October 13.
