There will be a convention of the League of United Latin American Citizens at Alice, May 4 and 5, at which general officers will be elect-ed and very important matters will be discussed, J.T. Canales announces.
Congressman John N. Garner has secured a beautiful U.S. flag regu-lation size which has actually been flown from the central flag polel of the capitol building at Washington, which will be presented in his name as compliments to the league by Mr. Canales. In addition, Mr. Gar-ner has sent a large fac-simile of the declaration of independence and a copy of the American creed, which also will be presented to the su-preme council of the league.
An interesting program will be presented. Dr. O, Douglas Weeks, of the department of government Texas university, will deliver an address on "Constitutional Law," and will present a constructive criti-cism of the constitution of the league. Alonso S. Perales, who has been residing in Washington and who has served the government in various capacities, and who is a Legion man, will deliver an address on the subject of "Citizenship and Democracy."
Mr. Perales is at present the most popular candidate for president general of the league and it is prob-able that he will be elected without an yopposition to that important office.

[Illegibe word] Senator Archie Par has been invited and expects to be present.
