PAGE 6 THE ORTONVILLE INDEPENDENT i i &apos;HURSDAY, MA I American {2 Leqton / =ornef THE FLAG OF OUR COUNTRY. The American Flag, the emblem of our country, is the third oldest na- tional flag m the ,world. It is known as "Old Glory,' .... lhe Stars and i s " Strpe., "The Star Spangled Bali- ner," and "The tied, White and Blue." By whatever name we describe it, it represems liberty--and liberty means obedience to our laws. The Flag contains thirteen stripes, alternate red and white, representing the thirteen original states; and a star 'or each state of the Union. The Field of the Flag is the stripes, and the Union is the blue and the stars. The colors bf the Flag are red, repre- sentig valor; white representing purity, ttnath and home; blue repre- senting loyalty, sincerity and justice; and its stars representing the federal uldon. The arrangement of the stars on the Flag is regulated by law and execu- tive order. An executive order, issued October 26, 1912, provided for 48 stars arranged in six horizontal rows of eight stars each. Starting in the up- per left-hand corner and reading each row from left to right, gives the star of each state in the order of the states' ratification of he Constitution and ad- mission to the Union. The star repre- senting Minnesota is the eighth star of the fourth row, the thirty-second state to ratify the Constitution and be- come part of the .United States. The dimensions of the flag are fix- ed by an executive order issued May 26, 1916. The length should be just 1.9 times its height. The Union, or] part of the Flag on which the stars appear, should be seven stripes high and its length .76 of the height of the flag. The stars are five-poinyd, with one point directly upward. Wlven a new state is admitted the star is not added to the flag until the Fourth of July next succeeding the date of ad- mission. The Constitution is the ba- sis of all law, and the Flag is its symbol. Always respect it. "It is only a small bit but there comes with it my sympathy and my wish that the Legion succeed in mak- ing this ceremony a becoming expres- sion of American remembrance of of those sons of the repu, blic who gave their iives in the great war," wrote President Harding in transmitting $25 to the American Legion Overseas Graves Decoration Fund. It is indeed a beautiful custom that the memory of those brave boys who are buried in the fields where pop- pies grow should be remembered by the Legon on Memorial Day.. May there never be a year when Amer- ica shall fail to express her gratitude to those whose blood has helped con- secrate the soil of France," says the Fargo Forum. "When we honir au dead cam- fades on Memorial Day we must not fail to write our senators and con- gressmen and ask them to vote for the Legion's program of better condi- tions for the disabled," reads an edi- torial in the Montevideo News. aThe spirit of good fellowship and common interest developed thru such joint meeting augurs good for the progress and upbuilding of the com- munity," declares the Luverne Her- ald, referring to a meeting and enter- tainment put on by the Luverne Le- gion post and Conmercial Club to make plans for boosting Luverne's re- sources and beauty spots.

Minnesota Legionaires welcomed three new Legion posts into their fold iast week, Isanti, Isanti county, Brook Park, Pine county, and Morgan Park, Duluth. That makes a total of 480 posts. The Women's Auxiliary or- ganized four new units, at Appleton, Pine Island, Carlos, and Maple Lake. Side by side the boystwho fought and the women who steed by them are marching on together and working fol the good of their country and their respective communities. "Aliens who voluntarily enlisted af- ter having been exempted because of alienage" and "non-declarant aliens of neutral countries who were entitled to exemption, whose claims were de- nied, who performed honorable serv- ice, and who became full citizens be- fore April 23, 1921," are entitled to Minnesota's bonus, rules the Attor- ney General. Aroused because the ladies of the surrounding towns were "beating the Madison ladies to it" in organizing a Legion Auxiliary unit, Madison Min- nesota Legionaires decided to get out and help them organize, declaring "Our good ladies stood by us and worked hard for us during the war. Now they must help enjoy our good times." Chapter 235, Minnesota Laws of 1921, makes it misdemeanor to wear the insignia of The American Legion unless entitled thereto under the Le- gion constitution. Buddies who have not paid post, state and national dues for 1921 should do so at once or dis- continue wearing the emblem. Other- wise they are sailing under false col- ors. Each Minnesota Legion post m{y secure $25 from its County Board to defray Memorial Day expenses, ac- cording to Chapter 233, laws of Min- nesota, 1921. Where County Board does not meet before Memorial Day, posts will arrange with County Com- missioners, individually, to make the appropriation at the next County Board meeting. Section 122, Chapter .506, Minnesota Laws of 1921, grants Legion posts the use of Armories for regular meetings, provided such Legion mee- , J ings do not interfere with the use of the Armories for military purposes. Any Legion post which has difficulty in availing itself of this privilege should communicate with Legion State Headquarters. "Every member of organized labor who is eligible should join the Ameri- can Legion and help his buddies in their fight for their just claims," de- clares an editorial in the California Oil Worker, official newspaper of the California Gas Well, Oil Field and Refine, Workers of America, which adds: "The charge has been made that theLegion is capitalistic but its very composition proves that such an ac- cusation is absolutely baseless. The Legion's big job is to win decent treat- ment for thousands of disabled veter- ans and to find employment for ap- proximately 400,000 more who are now jobless.

The colors bf the Flag are red, repre- sentig valor; white representing purity, ttnath and home; blue repre- senting loyalty, sincerity and justice; and its stars representing the federal uldon. The arrangement of the stars on the Flag is regulated by law and execu- tive order. An executive order, issued October 26, 1912, provided for 48 stars arranged in six horizontal rows of eight stars each. Starting in the up- per left-hand corner and reading each row from left to right, gives the star of each state in the order of the states' ratification of he Constitution and ad- mission to the Union. The star repre- senting Minnesota is the eighth star of the fourth row, the thirty-second state to ratify the Constitution and be- come part of the .United States. The dimensions of the flag are fix- ed by an executive order issued May 26, 1916. The length should be just 1.9 times its height. The Union, or] part of the Flag on which the stars appear, should be seven stripes high and its length .76 of the height of the flag. The stars are five-poinyd, with one point directly upward. Wlven a new state is admitted the star is not added to the flag until the Fourth of July next succeeding the date of ad- mission. The Constitution is the ba- sis of all law, and the Flag is its symbol. Always respect it. "It is only a small bit but there comes with it my sympathy and my wish that the Legion succeed in mak- ing this ceremony a becoming expres- sion of American remembrance of of those sons of the repu, blic who gave their iives in the great war," wrote President Harding in transmitting $25 to the American Legion Overseas Graves Decoration Fund. It is indeed a beautiful custom that the memory of those brave boys who are buried in the fields where pop- pies grow should be remembered by the Legon on Memorial Day.. May there never be a year when Amer- ica shall fail to express her gratitude to those whose blood has helped con- secrate the soil of France," says the Fargo Forum. "When we honir au dead cam- fades on Memorial Day we must not fail to write our senators and con- gressmen and ask them to vote for the Legion's program of better condi- tions for the disabled," reads an edi- torial in the Montevideo News. aThe spirit of good fellowship and common interest developed thru such joint meeting augurs good for the progress and upbuilding of the com- munity," declares the Luverne Her- ald, referring to a meeting and enter- tainment put on by the Luverne Le- gion post and Conmercial Club to make plans for boosting Luverne's re- sources and beauty spots.

Minnesota Legionaires welcomed three new Legion posts into their fold iast week, Isanti, Isanti county, Brook Park, Pine county, and Morgan Park, Duluth. That makes a total of 480 posts. The Women's Auxiliary or- ganized four new units, at Appleton, Pine Island, Carlos, and Maple Lake. Side by side the boystwho fought and the women who steed by them are marching on together and working fol the good of their country and their respective communities. "Aliens who voluntarily enlisted af- ter having been exempted because of alienage" and "non-declarant aliens of neutral countries who were entitled to exemption, whose claims were de- nied, who performed honorable serv- ice, and who became full citizens be- fore April 23, 1921," are entitled to Minnesota's bonus, rules the Attor- ney General. Aroused because the ladies of the surrounding towns were "beating the Madison ladies to it" in organizing a Legion Auxiliary unit, Madison Min- nesota Legionaires decided to get out and help them organize, declaring "Our good ladies stood by us and worked hard for us during the war. Now they must help enjoy our good times." Chapter 235, Minnesota Laws of 1921, makes it misdemeanor to wear the insignia of The American Legion unless entitled thereto under the Le- gion constitution. Buddies who have not paid post, state and national dues for 1921 should do so at once or dis- continue wearing the emblem. Other- wise they are sailing under false col- ors. Each Minnesota Legion post m{y secure $25 from its County Board to defray Memorial Day expenses, ac- cording to Chapter 233, laws of Min- nesota, 1921. Where County Board does not meet before Memorial Day, posts will arrange with County Com- missioners, individually, to make the appropriation at the next County Board meeting. Section 122, Chapter .506, Minnesota Laws of 1921, grants Legion posts the use of Armories for regular meetings, provided such Legion mee- , J ings do not interfere with the use of the Armories for military purposes. Any Legion post which has difficulty in availing itself of this privilege should communicate with Legion State Headquarters. "Every member of organized labor who is eligible should join the Ameri- can Legion and help his buddies in their fight for their just claims," de- clares an editorial in the California Oil Worker, official newspaper of the California Gas Well, Oil Field and Refine, Workers of America, which adds: "The charge has been made that theLegion is capitalistic but its very composition proves that such an ac- cusation is absolutely baseless. The Legion's big job is to win decent treat- ment for thousands of disabled veter- ans and to find employment for ap- proximately 400,000 more who are now jobless. Nothing very capitalistis about that, is there ?" "To stand firmly against bolshe- vism, anarchy, and other acts design- ed to disrupt our government and dis- turb ore" economic, social and com- mercial relations," is the aim of the Federated Patriotic Societies of Amer- ica, which hope to comprise all patri- otic organizations, with a member- ship of six million. The officers will be elected at the G. A. R. encampment next September. The American Le- gion will be represented there. A Tampa lawyer had just won Pat's case after a hard fight.
