But fling Old Glory to the breeze— There are no cowards here! Our fathers fought; like heroes died, For years their blood they gave, That honor, home and peace be ours; Awake! thy country save! Our flag for honor ever stands To lift the weak, to lead the free; America, our blessed land, Is calling thee. From North to South, from Sea to Sea, I hear the answering cry: “Thy sons forever shall be free, For thee will live and die!” Then fling Old Glory to the main, Beneath her stars unroll; For cowardice shall never stain The glory of her folds. The Stars and Stripes shall lead us on, A mighty host for right, That peace shall reign for evermore, And war from earth take flight. —Francis Adams Hoisted. The above poem was on one of the war posters and fully gives the rea sons for the Nation's call and the purpose for fighting. o Flag Salute Obligatory Judge William Butler, of the Ches ter County Court, in the case of Francis Betchel and John W. Kolb, members of the Mennonite Church, living in East Vincent Township. Pennsylvania, must salute the Ameri can flag wherever it is displayed, especially in the daily exercises where this is required. He upheld the decision of a Justice who had fined Betchel and Kolb S2.00 each for refusing to send their chil dren to school at Spring City because they were requested to salute the flag. The two were sentenced to pay the costs of the litigation, which has gone through three terms of Court, the amount being about $200 each. He also compelled them to order their children to attend the public schools. -o He told the shy maid of his love, The color left her cheeks; But on the shoulder of his coat It showed for several weeks. WHAT THE FLAG SAW Franklin K. Lari'- heard the flag .say this: “Let me tell you who I am. The work that we do is the making of the real flag, i am not the flag—not at all. 1 am but its shadow. I am what ever you make me, nothing more. I am your belief in yourself, your dream of what a people may become. I live a changing life, a life of mood- and passions, of heart breaks and tired muscles. .Sometimes I am strong with pride, when men do an honest work, fitting the rails together truly. Some times I droop, for then purpose has gone from me, and cynically I play the coward. Sometimes I am loud, garish and full of that ego that blasts judg ment. But always I am all that you hops to be and have the courage to try for. “I am song and fear, struggle and panic, and ennobling hope. 1 am the day's work of the weakest man. and the largest dream of the most daring. 1 am the Constitution and courts, stat utes and statute makers, soldier and dreadnaught, drayman and street sweep, cook, counselor and clerk. I am the battle of yesterday and the mistake of tomorrow. 1 am the mys tery of the men who do without know ing why. I am the clutch of an idea and the reasoned purpose of resolu tion. I am no more than what you be lieve me to be, and J am all that you believe I can be. I am what you make me, nothing more. I swing before your eyes as a bright gleam of color, a symbol of yourself, the picture sug gestion of that big thing which makes this nation. My stars and my stripes are your dreams ar.d your labors. They are bright with cheer, brilliant with courage, firm with faith, because you have made them so out of your hearts, for you are the makers of the flag, and it is well that you glory in the making.”—Franklin K. Lane. -o FRANKLIN K. LANE was bom on Prince Edward Island in 1864. In 1867 his father, a poor clergyman, moved to California. He began as a printer's devil, next a re porter and worked his way thru the University of California at Berkley. He gained his fame a.- a political re former by helping draft a new charter for San Francisco and was elected county attorney to interpret it. He missed an election for Governor of California by only 3,000 and was the Democratic candidate for U. S. Sena tor before the legislature. He gained such a reputation for political reform and integrity that President Roose velt appointed him on the Interstate Commerce Commission in 1903. President Wilson appointed him Secretary of the Interior in 1913 from which he resigned in 1919 after the > best of administration. He died May 18. 1921. at Rochester, Minn. His was one of the greatest minds in our Nation. Citizens Soldier In a Democracy every man should ! be physically fit to be a soldier and know how to do some military service. During the World War little Switzer land, a Democratic country, was sur rounded with belligerents, but citizen soldiers guarded their border with guns. The citizens training camp was be gun at Plattsburg, N. Y„ in the sum mer of 1913. The first camps were open only to college students over 1' years of age I who volunteered for this instruction, and who were required to pay for their clothing and subsistence for a period of six weeks. They became the efficient officers during the \\ orld War. The training camp has been j continued since with great and good ‘ulti 'he camp this year will begin Au t 7. It will be open to citizens be en the ages of 16 and 35, prefer y those who have had no previous itary Gaining, and will be known “red” course, or a camp for pre inary instruction. From this camp men mav, if they so select, join National Guard of the organized erves as members of the Seventy enth. Seventy-eighth or Seventy th Divisions, which will constitute reserves of the Second Corps area, my man who has the time and its a profitable outing at Govem it expense would profit b\ what y get in this camp. ‘apt. John E. Brown, at the Dela •e Ordnance Depot, will be pleased give particulars. -o Developing South Jersey Forests Development of the forest resources of the Wharton Estate, consisting of 100,000 acres of woodland in Burling ton, Atlantic and Camden Counties, has begun by the appointment of Mr. James O. Hazard as forester of the Wharton properties in South Jersey. Mr. Hazard, who is a graduate of the Yale Forest School, and who was for merly in the sendee of the State as assistant forester, has recently estab lished a residence in Hammonton. He has begun at once the work of protect ing the woodlands from fire and de veloping the forest resources so that this tract, now consisting largely of young and frequently burned forest may be returned to productivity. Due to the repeated fires there are, today, only five sawmills cutting tim ber from this tract. These mills have an average cut per day of about 3000 to 4000 board feet. Had fire been kept out of the forest for the past fifty years and the cut regulated to the amount of the annual growth, the tract would now be capable of supporting continuously, 16 sawmills cutting an average of’10,000 board feet per dav or 3,000.000 board feet per year, each. This affords a striking example of a valuable industry lost to the present through the forest fire menace. The practice of forestry will in time 1 e turn this valuable industry- to the lo cality. -o Chickens all hatched? Then it’s time to oust the rooster from the flock.
