Americanism of . the truest type per

the anniversary banquet of the. Elk

The foreign-bom citizen, no matter

In that gathering. It was not that any
thing was said that would offend hint
but. that he would hare felt out of
llace. The order of Elks Is typically
and essentially an American order
and. the banquet on Saturday evening
was typically American as well. Un
doubtedly It was the entrance of the
nation into war that made the Dree of
patriotism leap, into a great and con
quering flame, From the first notes
of the ' Star Spangled Banner played
by the orchestra, almost at the outset
of the banquet until the last note of
