Here is the following paragraph appearing in the American Legion Monthly:
The cosmopolitan nature of the Legion’s membership greatly increases its effectiveness in these undertakings. The Legion operates not solely as an outside force of sportsmen and lovers of nature. Its members are in the state legislature, in the Senate and in the House of Representatives of the United States, on the state conservation commissions. Its members include men of influence in all walks of life everywhere, so that there is no cooling of heels in the corridor when the rank and file hosts of Legion sportsmen desire an audience. That is why the Legion has been able to accomplish so much in so short a time.
