"OLD GLORY" NEVER SALUTES
incident of Boy Scout Jamboree in
London Apparently Misunderstood
There and In America.
There has been much comment on
this side of the ocean as well as the
other because during the recent "Iu
tornational Scout jamboree" in London
the American Boy Scouts did not dip
their ilng in salute, as tho scouts of
all other countries d(Id.
Even when ceremonies wwe held
in honor of the war dead, the Amori
can flag remained steadily upright
wheni all other flags wer. dipped.
