U. S. Marines salute the National Flag at a tropictd outpost in the West Indies. Insert: Soldiers of the
sea at San Oiego, Calif., during a formal presentation of the Stars and Stripes and their regimental color.
The National Flag is carried to the right in this and all similar parades or formations. Hiohest honors are
always accorded "Old Glory" by all of our naval or military forces either at home or abroad.
The birthday of Old Glory, June
I t, should bring a responsive thrill !
to every patriotic American.
It Is the most beautiful of all na
tional colors. Our flag has pointed
the way to freedom to countless
thousands: its stars and stripes
have been an inspiring symbol for
more than a century and a half.
It stands for patriotism, loyalty
and fidelity to the ideals of Am
"Old Glory's" Ancestors
This attractive emblem of our
nation that has come down to us
through the years has ben evolved
from those earlier banners that
once cheered the hearts of the
In the early days of the revolu-'
tlon there were many striking 'flag
designs. Some bore rattlesnakes
with the ominous words of warn
ing, "Don't tread on me," emblaz
oned on their folds. Others showed
the pine tree symbol with the
words, "An appeal to heaven."
Some showed both the pine treo
and rattlesnake, - or beavers',
anchors, and state mottoes.
Delvers into the flag lore of our
country will find scores of such
types, each emblematic of the
hopes, visions and aspirations of
the people who had not yet found
liberty and freedom for which they
were striving.
The first flag in general use by
the coloniBts consisted of 'thirteen
stripes, alternate red and white,
typifying the thirteen colonies,
with aeinion bearing the crosses of
St. George and St. Andrew, where
the stars in the blue field now ap
pear. It was called the Grand
Union Flag, or First Naval En
sign, and it was the immediate pre
decessor of the Stars and Stripes,
which we so often call Old Glory.
Romance has trailed1 Old Glory
from the beginning. It harks back
to the days of Betsy Ross, whose
nimble fingers wrought with lov
ing care the first sample of the na
tional flag, which was almost iden-
tical with the flag as we know It
Story of Betsy Ross
Mrs. Ross was a widow. Late in
the Bprlng of 1776 her little shop
on Arch street, Philadelphia, was
visited by some distinguished per
sons. A committee, headed by
George Washington, called on Mrs.
Ross and submitted a rough de
sign of a new type of flag which
they asked her to make. Stars In
the blue field had been substituted
for the crosses of St. George and
St. Andrew.
Descendants of Betsy have vouch
ed for the authenticity of the his
toric visit, and it Is known that
not long afterward congress made
an order on the trensury to pay
Mrs. Ross a sum amounting to Ho
ward of seventy dollars, ; in ; the
British currency then used "Tor
flags for the fleet in the Delaware
river." ,
June 14, 1777, more than a year
after Washington's visit to the lit
tle flag shop, is now recognized as
the flag's official birthday. On that
date congress resolved "That the
flag of the thirteen United States
be thirteen stripes, alternate red
and white; that the union be thir
teen stars, white in a blue field,
representing a new constellation."
Thereafter numerous incidents
relative to the new flag began to
make their appearance in history.
Less than three weeks after con
gress had authorized the flag, John
Paul Jones was at Portsmouth, N.
H., preparing to sail abroad on
the "Ranger."
"At Portsmouth," writes one
naval authority, "Paul Jones at
tracted about him a bevy of girls
who formed a so-called "flag bee,"
who with much patriotic enthusi
asm and many heart thrills
wrought out of their own and
their mothers' gowns a beautiful
Star Spangled Banner, which was
thrown to the . breeze in Ports
mouth Harbor on July 4, 1777."
Avery's history records that on
August 3, Colonel Gansevoort, with
more than that amount since last
November when he first started
work for the company and Is sll(

a command of 800 men, was de
fending Fort Stnnwtx, near the
present 'sight of Rome, N. Y.; when
word was received of the new flag
design. The garrison was searched
for material to manufacture the
new flag, presumably the Stars and
Stripes', which was dlspluyed the
same afternoon from a tlngstaff on
a bastion nearest the enemy. There
Is, however, no authentic record
of either the Grarid Union Flag or
the Stars and Stripes, as national
colors, ever having boon carried In

A Shot For Each Stripe
Captain Thomas Thompson of
the American ship "Raleigh" fired
on a British ship he was pursuing
on September 4. "We up sails, out
guns, hoisted the Continental col
ors and bid them strike to the
Thirteen United States," wrote
the captain. "Sudden surprise
threw them into confusion and
their sails flew all aback, upon
which we complimented them with
a gun for each state, a whole
broadside into their hull." This
was th6 new flag's first encounter
at sea.
The Stars and Stripes first float
ed over a fortress of the Old World,
when Lieutenant O'Bannon .of the
Murines and Midshipman Mann of
the Navy raised the flag over the
fortress at Heme,- Tripoli, where It

ner still waving over Fort Mc-
Henry, and composed the Bong
