The Stars and Stripes of freedom Are seen on every hand; But there's another emblem. With Its meaning deep and true— Those service flags of crimson With their stars of Heaven's blue. And each star means a hero, A boy of yours or mine, Who is fighting, suffering, dying, Somewhere along the line. And the flags with deepest meaning. No matter where they are, Are these little flags of crimson. With their sing'e bright blu star. I saw a little farm house Out on a western plain, Surrounded there on every side By fields of waving grain. And shining in its window, Like a beacon light afar, , Was this little flag of crimson, - With its one blue star, I saw a city tenement. All dirty, bleak and drear; Begrimed with smoke and From the factories belching near; But from its upper window, Lik» a golden gate ajar, Flow this little flag of crimson, With its one blue .star X saw a city mansion, ^ 'Twas a home of wealth and Surrounded green hedges, With flower t.eds and trees; But just beside the portal, on its a rich and golden bar. Hnug this little flag of crimson, With its one blue star. So when the bands are crashing, And « he flags are waving high, As V the r Wns i 'eo ma Vi hT C,, r rinS ! Dont forget the Dads and Mothers.

The wedding thus announced occurred last May, at Valejo. California, where Mr. Fowle was sta $ioned. It wps the result of a friend ship formed while both were students at the University of Nebraska.
