Apparently they had not been cleaned for years, but the house never saw fit to do anyttvng about it. A few days after the start of the long session of the 43rd legislature the dingy banners were replaced. New flags were presented to the house by Mrs Susie Rudasill, ch’t! warrant clerk. Mrs. Rudasill work 'd several months is her spare tirm making them Every stitch that went into the ilaes was her own iaoor. She cut and sewed the giant stars on the blue background and deli cately stitched together the alter nate stripes of red and blue. She fashioned a new flag of the United States and a new Texas *.ao to replace the faded standards that had hung in the house so many years. In appreciation of her gift th*“ house appointed a signal commit tee to escort her to the speaker's stand so she could be properly thanked. A resolution commending her efforts was adopted unanimous ly New flag poles, topped with gold en eagles, were provided for the new emblems ^ilUncle Jin."
