Ceremonies Unusual.
The ceremonies attendant upon the
unfurling of the service flag at the
Wells school yesterday were an ob
ject leBson in patriotism which will
not soon be forgotten by the large
company present.
W. G. Blood was the speaker of
the afternoon and made a splendid
address. Mr. Blood is a patriot by
inheritance, being descended from a
minuteman of the Revolutionary war
and the son of a colonel of the civil
war, and is a veteran of the Spanish
American war. There was yet another
reason why he was chosen to speak
yesterday, and that is that he was
at one time a teacher in the Wells
school. For two or three years after
his return from college, before he
began the study of law, he taught at
the Wells school and was later 'Pro-land

Miss Stevens, the principal of the
building, presided and read the names
of those for whom the service flag
was made. Professor Hayden con
ducted the singing of "The Star
Spangled Banner," "Keep the Home
Fires Burning," and "Loyalty Is the
Word Today." Mr. Turner conducted
the flag drill. Max Schulz and Harold
Peterson sang "He's in France." The
American creed was recited by the
pupils of the fifth and sixth grades
and the program closed with a salute
to the flag.
It is interesting to note that the
service flag was made by the Moth
ers* club of the district and has on
it sixty-nine stars.
