BEMIDJI SHOULD BE GRATEFUL
Bemidji is fortunate. Bemidji is MOST fortunate. She has many
reasons for self congratulation, and the latest occasion Is that she is to
receive 1100,000 from the state tor the establishment of a state normal
school. The fact that $100,000 has been allowed as the Initial appropria-
tions will mean much to the city of Bemidji In many, many ways.
The certainty of the erection of the normal, at a time not far dis-
tant, will mean the building of several business houses, being delayed
pending the result of the work of Bemidji In attempting to secure a state
normal. It will also mean an impetus for the purchase of property and
the erection of additional houses and Improvement in general throughout
the city. And all this will precede the commencement of actual building
operations of the normal.
Bemidji has received generous treatment and the people of Bemidji
have ample cause to be exceedingly grateful and appreciative'.
What action Governor Burnquist took anent the omnibus educational
bill is a matter for Governor Burnquist to decide in his duties as chief
executive of the entire state of Minnesota. The Bemidji normal proposi-
tion wasn't the only thing that claimed the attention of the governor in
the educational bill and innumerable other instances, and that Bemidji
was granted $75,000, to which will be added the $25,000 allowed prior,
making a total of $100,000, is no small matter and one which should call
for the heartiest commendation for the governor and all who in any man-
ner aided in behalf of a state normal for northern Minnesota to be located
in Bemidji. And there's glory enough for all.
Bemidji has good cause to be grateful to the state legislature and
HISTORY OF AMERICAN FLAG
Never in the history of the city of Washington has there been such a
universal display of the American flag (public celebrations and patriotic
events, of course, excepted) as is now witnessed, says the American Luth
The resolution for the adoption of the Stars and Stripes as the Amer-
ican emblem was passed by the Cont inental Congress June 14, 1777. An
American ship, the Columbia, carried the American flag around the world
The American flag was first displayed in a foreign port from the mast
of the American schooner Bedford of Massachusetts which arrived in the
British Downs February 3, 1783
The first American flag for the United States navy was flung to the
breeze by John Paul Jones, the first American naval officer to engage a
foreign foe. This flag had but twelve stars on it and it flew at the top-
mast of the good ship Ranger.
France recognized this flag while it floated over the Ranger, and this
act also constituted the recognition of the young American government.
Every battleship of the United States navy is entitled to 250 American
flags every three years, although there are many renewals during that
period. The cost of the flags for each ship is $3,000, which totals a large
sum for the entire navy. The army uses equally as many.
The original flag was made in Philadelphia from bunting imported
from England in 1776 just before the Declaration of Independence was
The flag which Inspired Francis Scott Key to write the "Star Spangled
Banner" was an immense one, being thirty feet wide and forty-two feet
long, when it was hoisted over old Fort McHenry, near Baltimore, just as
the British were about to attack the Monumental City.
Prof. George Balch of New York City inaugurated "American Flag
day." He conducted a private school and on every 14th of June he held
special services of a patriotic character and every pupil carried a flag.
The high school of New Bedford, Mass., was the first public school in
the United States to raise the American flag over the school house, which
it did on May 11, 1861, about one month after the fall of Fort Sumter.
Victorian* Huerta died without saluting the American flag, as he was
directed to do by Admiral Fletcher of the United States navy, but fate
decided that his end should come only after he sought the protection of
the American flag on the north side of the international boundary.
The House of Representatives contains a*h immense American flag, but
the largest one in the world is suspended from the top of the Postoffice
department building and droops 300 feet in the inner court.
The farmers are complaining about the cost of clothing and other
city and town products, and town people are complaining about the cost
of spuds and other farm products. What's the matter anyway?
Little Boy Scouts are coming right to the front with offers to serve
their country But Cupid continues to lead the matrimonal army in the
maddest and wildest charge in history.
And Bemidji is to get a state Sunday school convention next summer,
thanks to enterprising citizens, and we'll show those southenders a real
town when they come.
Since City Engineer Swinson's salary has been tied up he doesn't have
to worry about the h. c. of 1. Not having any salary to spend is like hav-
ing nowhere to go.
The government is being flooded with applications for commissions,
and ten out of every nine wants to be a general or an admiral. Gosh!
Give us a gun!
Now that Bemidji has a good start on its normal school watch things
commence to hum. Already we've heard of several property transfers for
