IT WAS IN GEORGE W, LLACE'S ADMINISTRA- TION. The reason it was not buiR then was because "Federal Funds" were not available and we were assured by George Wallace that it would be burr as soon as Federal Funds were available.

THAT the American Legion Auxiliary was the first national organization to adopt the poppy as its Memorial Flower, having taken this action at the National Convention in Clevetand, Sept. 27-29, 19207 THAT at the time the Ameri- can I.~gion Auxiliary adopted the poppy it pledged the profits from the poppy sales 100 per cent to welfare relief for ser- vice men and women and their families, thus fulfiLLing the true meaning of the poppy- an emblem of faith, faith which is being kept with all who died, through service to the living? THAT the memorial poppies are made of red crepe paper, by hand, by disabled veterans in hospitals and poppy work- rooms in forty states, and that the workers receive pay for each poppy made, the materials being furnished free by the De- pariments in the State in which the hospital is located? THAT the public is given an opportunity each year to help the great work of the American Legion Auxiliary, as weLL as PID. POt.. ADV.IY IPMIRALA IPIIIIENDS POll WALLACE O011MITTIEIE, P.
