His mother doesn't like this change.
She says it is a shame
That since he plays with larger boys
he's bound to lose the game.
But little do I mind his loss; I'm more
concerned to know
The way he acts the tlmas when he

WHAT THE FLAG SAID
-f (By Franklin K. Lane.)
I AM not the flag ; not at all. 1 am but its shadow.
I am whatever you make me ; nothing more.
I am your belief in yourselves, your dream of what a
people may become.
I live a changing life, a life of moods and passions, of heart
breaks and tired muscles
Sometimes I am strong with pride, when men do an honest
work, fitting the rails together truly.
1 Sometimes I droop, for then purpose has gone from me, and
cynically I play the coward.
Sometimes I am loud, garish, and full of that ego that blasts
judgment, but always I am all that you hope to be and have the
courage to try for.
I am song and fear, struggle and panic and ennobling hope.
I am the day's work of the weakest man and the largest
dream of the most daring.
I am the constitution and the courts, statutes and the statute
makers, soldier and dreadnaught, drayman and street sweep,
cook, counsellor and clerk.
I am the battle of yesterday and the mistake of tomorrow.
I am the mvsterv of the men who do without knowing why.
I am the clutch of an jdea and the reasoned purpose of reso
I am nd more than what you believe me to be and I am all
that you believe I can be.
I am what you make me ; nothing more.
I swing before your eyes as a bright gleam of color, a sym
bol of yourself, the pictured suggestion of that big thing which
makes this nation. My stars and my stripes are your dream and
your labors. Thev are bright with cheer, brilliant with courage,
firm with faith, because you have made them so out of your
heart;' you are the makers of the flag, and it is well that you
glory in the making.

ME would think that the war had taught us to value a thor
f I nnarhlv iin-tn-Hate naw and an efficient air service if
nothing els6 in the way of military preparedness. Yet
some people consider it the height of wisdom to slash theaval
appropriation bill regardless of the fact we are not in the
League of Nations or any other world combination for preserv
ing peace. These people view with disfavor the strengthening
of the navy although we are admittedly outclassed at present
by Great Britain and regardless of the fact Japan has an am
bitious navy building program under way. They are unmoved
by the fact our administration is pledged to change the Panama
canal tolls act in seeming disregard of a treaty with England.
They are unmindful of the fact tiie status of the Anglo-Japanese
alliance is not yet determined. They fail to consider that
part of Europe is under a bolsheviki regime that makes open
war on democracy and that the rest of the big European states
never know from day to day what dangrers they may face on the
morrow. Our pacificts ignore the fact that the world has been
shown to be small and that when a big fire rages the flames
may easily reach our shores.
These people are making a mistake. If they had their way
they could lead us into blunders that might prove disastrous.
We want peace and disarmament and we should be actively
leading a world move to make peace and disarmament effective
and sure. But until we do that and bring about security it
would be insane for America to neglect its sea strength. Until
we get a fire department we can count upon it would be folly
to tear the fire extinguisher from the wall and the hose bib
from the kitchen sink.

the third death to result from a man's
wild infatuation for another's wife.
When the youthful milk wagon driv

fair Mrs. Ethel Hutchins Nott in the
summer of 19!0. there was no shadow
of the Impending tragedy. Both prin

their respective families In their homes

Oertrude 5, niul-lClbert 3, - and Mrs.
Nott had two children, tieorgc 5, and
The first death was that of George
B. Nott, gambler by profession, who
was attacked while sleeping In the at

struggle. A heavy piece of pipe, a

used. The persons who committed
this murder were, according to testl

of the murder.
The murder of Nott was carefully
planned, and deliberately end method

principals with the exception of John

committing the deed, testimony at

Mrs. Nott admitted them, and the pair
crept up the stairs to the attic after
