And let the world see in its folds
.. The bloody grounds that gave it birth
Amidst our men’s united stand,
Against the Tryant’s merciless lash.
Unfurl our Flag! ‘
And let it wave above our heads
Symbol of a people united;
Nor let injustice blot with shame ‘
Its glory bought with heroes’ blood. ‘
Salute our Flag!
' And blow the trumpet, beat the drum:
In unison sing hymns to hail
The glory of that emblem dear.
Our Flag adored, our banner revered.

July 4 is replete with an exub
erance of patriotic fervor and na
tional sentimentalism.
For it is a day of significance
to two nations: the United States
of America that declared her in
dependence on this date, and the
Philippines which was presented
her freedom “on a silver platter”
by her mentor who chose the self
same date.
So. on the Filipino side alone,
the day is observed with the full
glamor. of a Latin “fiesta" and
the fitting tribute to true patriot
‘ Seattle Filipinos do it every
year. The Philippine Consulate-
General holds its traditional rec
ception. The Filipino community
hurry en masse to Seward Park
for a no-host picnic, and athletic
events for the youngsters are are
ranged with cash prizes as the
fitting consolation. The Filipino -
American Women's Club has a.
traditional dance at the \N'ashing

follows the Reception of the. Phil.

coronation pageant for its Little
Royalty. This time. it will be at
the Senator Ballroom starting at
