AN ADDRESS THAT WILL LIVE
The late Franklin K. Lane wrote and said many wise things, but
no words of his will live longer than those contained in his epitome
to the Flag, spoken in an address to the clerks of the department of
the interior in 1914, right at the beginning of the "World war. The
address, which is regarded as a classic, is as follows: -
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. I am but its shadow. I am whatever
you make me, nothing more. I am your belief in lourself, your dream of
what a people may become. I live a changing life, a life of moods and
passions, of heartbreaks and tired muscles.
Sometimes I am strong with pride, when men do an honest work,
fitting the rails together truly.
Sometimes I droop, for then purpose has gone from me, and cynic
ally 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 hope to be and have the courage to try
for. : '
I am song and -fear, struggle and panic, and ennobling hope.
I am the day's work of the weakest man, and the largest dream of
the most daring.
I am the constitution and the courts, statutes and statute-makers,
soldier and dreadnaught, drayman and street-sweep, cook, counselor
I am the battle of yesterday and the mistake of tomorrow.
I am the mystery of the men who do without knowing why.
I am the clutch of an idea and the reasoned purpose of resolution.
I am no more than what you believe me to be, and I 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 suggestion of that big thing which makes this
My stars and stripes are your dreams and 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.

HOW WILL IT END?
Here's an alliteration that is causing many of the Old Guard to
sit up and take notice :
Harding, Hughes, Hoover, Harvey, Hell.
WONDER HOW THEY LIKE IT
It takes some nerve for an ambassador to sit down;or stand up
at the banquet board and declare the policy of the administration
that has appointed him. Rut that is just what Colonel George Har
vey, ambassador to Great Britain, did in London a few nights ago.
Wonder how President Harding and Secretary of State Hughes
like it to have another fellow use their prerogatives?
Before he got done talking Harvey remarked that he had better
quit or he might say too much, but it looks as thongh he bridled his
tongue too late.
It will be interesting now to wait and see what Harvey's supe
riors will do at the gratuitous affront tendered them.
PREVENT FIRES SAVE PROPERTY
The week beginning Sunday, May 22d, ushered in "Forest Fire
Prevention week," and teachers, clergymen, Boy Scouts and other!
organizations and all who have opportunity of making public, ad-,
dresses are urged during this week to take every opportunity to im-'
press upon all the supreme necessity of protecting the forests and
The national and state forest services, in co-operation with pri
vate owners of large areas of timber land, maintain during the sum
mer a very effective fire prevention service, which each year grows
more efficient, as more trails are made, more watch towers and tele
phones are constructed and more airplanes put into service. A really
great forest fire is not controllable by man, as tremendous air currents
are created which carry blazing torches over the heads of the fighters,
starting new fires behind them.
Only those who have seen a great area of burned-over land can
have any conception of .the resulting devastation. During the five
years ending with 1920 the forest fires btirned over 56,488.307 acres,
destroying stumpage and other property to the computed value of
$85,715,747. We are paying for that loss in increased prices of
every foot of lumber which goes into any structure. Easily accessible
timber is nearly gone. The farther we work back into the rough
mountain country the more it costs to build and furnish a house. It
pays every one of us to help prevent fires.
HIGHEST AND LOWEST POINTS IN THE WORLD
The difference between the highest and lowest points of land in
the United States is 14,777 feet, according to the United States geo
logical survey, department of the interior. Mount Whitney, the high
est point, is 14,501 feet above sea level, and in Death valley there is
a depression that lies 276 feet below sea level. These two points,
which are both in California, are less than ninety miles apart. This
difference in height is small, however, as compared with the differ
ence in the height and depth of land in Asia. Mount Everest rises
29,002 feet above sea level, whereas the shores of the Dead Sea lie
1,290 feet below-sea level, a total difference in height of 30,292 feet.
Mount Everest has never been climbed.
The greatest depth yet found in any ocean is 32,088 feet, the
depth at a point about forty miles north of the island of Mindanao,
in the Philippine Islands. The bottom of the sea at this point is
therefore more than eleven and a half miles below the summit of
