D isplay of the Flag
The flag should be displayed only
fro m sunrise to sunset; it should be
displayed on national and state holi­
days and on histo ric and special
occasions; it should be hoisted b risk­
ly and lowered slow ly and cere­
m oniously. In ra isin g and lowering
the flag it should never be allowed
to touch the ground. When the flags
of states o r citie s or pennants of
societies are flown on the same
h a lya rd w ith the flag o f the United
States, the A m e rica n flag is always
a t the peak. When flown fro m ad­
ja c e n t staffs one flag o f the United
States should be hoisted firs t. No
flag o r pennant should be placed
above o r to the rig h t o f the flag
o f the U nited States, except where
a num ber o f flags are grouped or
displayed fro m staffs, when the flag
o f the U nited States should be in
the center.
Longest and Shortest Days
The longest and shortest days of
the year are determ ined by the
sum m er and w in te r solstices, the
exact tim e being determ ined by
m athem atical calculation. The sol­
stices are the tim es of the year
when the sun is at its greatest dec­
lination, either north o r south. F or
instance, the sum m er solstice is the
tim e when the sun reaches its fa rth ­
est point in its swing northw ard
from the equator, which, according­
ly , m arks the longest day of the
year. The year consists of approx­
im ately 36514 days, and it is this
fractional day o f each year which
causes the solstices to fluctuate.
This is adjusted by the leap years.
However, the longest and shortest
days d iffe r in length from the days
im m e d ia te ly preceding and fo llo w ­
ing them by only a fraction of a
m inute.
A Sense of H um or.
rY A M O N R U N YO N , who, „
wise, should know better,
i opens the issue o f w hether i
; people have a sense o f hum or, m is
i provokes somebody to in q u ire w hat
is hum or, anyhow?
I stand by th is d e fin ition : H um or
is tragedy standing on its head w ith
its pants torn.
Lots o f fo lks th in k a sense of hu­
m o r is predicated on the a b ility to
laugh at o ther folks, w hich is wrong.
A real sense of h u m o r is based on
o u r a b ility to laugh at ourselves.
You have to say, not as Puck did,
“ W hat fools these m o rta ls be,” but,
“ W hat fools we m o rta ls be.”
T h a t’s w hy few women have a true
sense o f hum or. U sually a woman,
even a w itty woman-, takes herself
so seriously, she can never regard
herself unseriously.
