The breaking of the flagpole during the flag raising at the Y. M. C. A. this morning barely escaped closing the exercises entirely. As the big flag swung free from the ground there was a cracking of timbers and the end of the pole dropped about ten feet. It was kept from breaking entirely loose from its fastenings by the quick action of the men on the top floor of the building, Mr. George Lerrlgo 'and Prof, Allen immediately went to the attic of the building and after twenty tninutes of strenuous effort succeeded in securing the pole firmly enough to allow the ceremony to proceed. ine poie was iweniy-iwo leet long, V and was of four by four fir timber. 11 It penetrates and cleanse the ninutet crevices of the teeth. It (perm ea tea the gums and the lin jingr of the mouth. It is healthy ful. It is the only thing to use if you have a real genuine interest in your teeth. The friend of tie teeth is EOZODONT. This would have been long enough for any ordinary flag but this flag was twenty-two feet long and twelve feet wide. Add to this that there was a strong wind blowing at the time and the strain on the pole was very great. The main part of the pole held firmly, but the part that was fastened to the bridge work of the roof was spliced and it was at this part of the pole that the break occurred. At twenty minutes past 12 o'clock, which was twenty minutes later than the time set for the raising, the flag swung upward into place and the crowd that had gathered to witness the ceremony sang "The Star Spangled Banner." Mr. M. C. Holman led in the singing. The delay of twenty minutes which had been caused by the breaking of the pole had only served to make the crowd more serious and attentive. Mr. Geo. Lerrigo said in regard to the breaking of the pole that it had been thoroughly tested earlier in the morn ing and that it worked in good shape. Capt. W. M. Peterson, the commander of Lincoln Post G. A. R., said: "At 10:30 this morning the flag was raised under my personal supervision, and went up without a single hitch. I do not know why it should have broken at this time unless the wind, which has risen per ceptably since then, was too much of a strain on the pole. I am glad it was so successfully put back In place." At exactly five minutes to twelve the Lincoln Post G. A. R. turned from Kan sas avenue into Ninth street and headed by the Lincoln Post Drum and Fife Corps, marched to the V. M. C. A. build ing. A good sized crowd of people had gathered in front of the building. Very prominent among them was the W. R. C. The entire ceremony was in charge of the G. A. R. and the W. R. C. and was made very impressive by the patri otic ferver with which they entered Into the services. After the singing of "The Spangled Banner" Capt. W. M. Peterson Intro duced Past Department Commander P. H. Coney to the audience. Dv C. Tillot son and Department Commander W. C. Campbell also spoke. Crosby Bros. Get Contract. -The stata board of control this morning completed its awards of con tracts. All the queensware contracts were let to Crosby Bros, of Topeka, the only bidder.
