Download PDF for this date

The deportation of all refugees from the United States immediately after the war was demanded today in a resolution adopted here at the normal convention of the American Legion. Another resolution adopted last night urged that “all immigrants be barred from the U. S. from the date of cessation of hostilities of the present war until such time as unemployment in this country shall drop to less than 1,000,000 and all veterans shall have been afforded the opportunity of gainful employment.”
