Somerset County’s American Legion joined with its brother group in Middlesex County in a demand today for an immediate and sweeping investigation of Camp Wille und. Macht, near Bridgetown, despite the recent assurance given by camp leaders that the youth colony will be disbanded during the coming week.

Harry K. King, Somerset American Legion commander, expressed the opinion that the camp is “contrary to the principles of the government of the United States.”
