address to the applicants upon the sub

stood for and what they as citizens of
the United States aro expected to stnnd

in simple words the lofty ideals for
which the American flag stands and
pointed out the necessity of Mb hearers
adopting these as their standard of
citizenship. It was a brief lecture on

said the applicants, one and all, were

Americans in the subject of naturaliza

literature on the subject which in this
