Tolerance Crusade to Be Launched in 1940 by American Legion

A crusade for tolerance through the 11,593 American Legion posts during 1940 was decided upon yesterday by the Legion’s national executive committee. Jeremiah Cross, retiring Americanism chairman, in making the proposal, said: “The members of the American Legion, having served their country in time of war, now in time of peace enlist in this crusade for the preservation of justice, freedom, truth and democracy — and we have never yet lost a fight.”
