VETERANS OF 3 WARS JOIN IN EXERCISE Veterans of three v.-.irs io:nrd wfl h the members and Mends of Bridge- i port Lodge 26 in the Flag Day ceie- i bration of the Elks in their audito- ! ri.irn last night. Tile address was de- Uvered by United S ales Marshal Wll- liam R. Palmer of Derby Lodge, who declared that the Klks stood for the same ideals as the American flag and that the flag itself was but a symbol oi -ne naemy, orotntny love, charity and justice among men first taught j 2,000 years ago and which had its luU flower in tha American nation. In introducing the speaker Exalted j Ruler Lawrence T. Gallagher said: I " 1 believe there is no man more fa miliar with l.he patriotic spirit of the country than the speaker of the even ing, Brother Palmer of Derby Lodge." Mr. Palmer said in part: "Our flag is a great development in the minds of men, and this great or ganization of which we are proud to be members, this really American or ganization is founded upon the very principles which started the thought that culminated in this flag of ours. Long ago there came a great pretacher into the world and his doctrine was chasLity, and in those days men were drunken and the doctrine of this teacher was temperance. In thoss days the law was an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth, and his preach ment, was love one another. He taught our forefathers for the first time the very principles on which this order is founded Fidelity, Brotherly Love. Charity and Justice among men. "The emblem of this kingdom which he established was a cross. The King was killed and He died '.hat His kingdom might live. This nation of Ours was founded on those princi ples as no other nation had been, fidelity. Charity, Brotherly Love and Justice, not only among individuals, but among nations of l.he world. "Wherever that flag has been car ried mc-n and women have always stood for those principles. When we first took it up the world throbbed and a great nation was born. Then once, again in 1812 our forefathers took up this flag and carried it back, and all the seven seas became free because the idea that followed the flag was Fidelity, Brotherly Love, Charity and Justice. Again we took it up and carried it into battle and added to this great nation an inde pendent people who chose to becom-e a part of us. Then again it was taken up by these men and their associates and a whole race wTere made free men and women. Again we took it up and there was added to the diadem of nations a small na tion lying off our coast. Then it was taken by these young men and our associates, our sons, our sweet hearts, and the world became free. It was pounded into the minds of all the world that the fundamental principles by -which the world must be governed were those principle- in culcated in the minds of men 2.000 years ago. the principles of Fidelity, Charity. Brotherly Love and Justice. It waa pushed into the minds of the world that we are the universal brotherhood of men under an ever lasting fatherhood of Almighty God. "This great nation of ours, these are the things we have accomplished. On this great day, don't let us forget that during those terrible years such a short time past a new flag came in to existence. You saw it in win dows of homos and stores and shops. Each one of the stars on that new flag meant a tear that nobody saw but those who shed them. "Let us never forget that the principles cn which this great Order was founded are the principles that have conre down to us through 2.000 1 years. They are the things we must never forget, they are the things for which this flag stands." In conclusion, Marshal Palmer paid a touching tribute to the veterans of the civil war who were present as guests of honor. The entertainment program in cluded patriotic numbers by John L. Hughes.

This article explains why I am Bridgeport, and (Joe" Halloran, you all the facts connected formed to increase the number 4 to 31, and About two years ago I met ".Tim" Connors for the first time. A luncheon of clothing folks took place at the Penn sylvania Hotel, New York, to which I was invited and asked to talk to the boys. My talk dealt mainly with a retailer's honesty in deal ing with the public selling good merchandise at fair prices, -giving full service and building trade on the Golden Rule plan. "Jim" sought me out after the luncheon and told me frankly that what I had said represented his sentiments that he was trying his level best to build a business that woidd serve customers so well that they would always come back and boost. During this two-year peri od, 'Jim" has sent me from time to time a lot of interest ing facts about his business, and wanted me to know how pleased he was with the sup port the people of Connecti cut were giving him in the four stores which he and "Joe" Halloran of New Bri tain now operate two in Bridgeport, one in New Bri tain and one in Hartford. Our chance meeting of two years ago has developed between us a strong personal friendship. I believe 100 per cent, in "Jim" and he says he believes 100 per cent, in me. About a month ago, "Jim" came to New York to talk over with me his plans and to seek my advice. "Jim" told me very frank ly what he had in mind to do. I am glad to tell you that his first outline of the plans to organize a new company is not much differ ent from the plans finally adopted by him and "Joe" Halloran and their associ ates, who now constitute CONNORS - HALLORAN STORES. INC. The only difference be tween the original plan and the present one is that which affects the distribution of the common stock of CONNORS - HALLORAN STORES, INC. I made the suggestion to " Jim" that people who had sufficient confidence in him to invest in the preferred stock ($10 the share par) of the new company, should be taken into the business as partners, whereupon he im mediate! v said: "THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT I WANT TO DO, but I don't know how to do it. You tell me how we can do it." And I said: "Every man or woman who will buy five shares of your preferred stock (price $50) or multiples thereof, should be given one share of common stock (par value $10). This will distribute 20.000 shares of common LEGION 10 HAVE Squadron of i the leap in a DAY AT BEACH BOARD The annual outing of the American legion posts of Bridgeport at Pleas ure leach today will be marked by a Hartford. reunion of ex-service men of control met rol.

Jim instantly saw the full import of this suggestion. ' ' That 's what I will do. " and said: ' ' Jim ' ' Connors and " Joe " Halloran and their associates decid ed also to issue only 50,000 shares of com mon stock. In talking to me about this feature ot the business, "Jim" said that he and his associates would be perfect ly satisfied to own 30,000 shares of common stock in the new company, to which they are entitled, I think because the stocks, the equipment, their store repre sent a conservative valua tion of $300,000, which is the par value of 30,000 shares of common stock at $10 the share. "Jim" Connors and "Joe" Halloran do not know how to be "tricky" in business, and they would not be tricky if they could. They know that they must make their holdings of com mon stock in the new com pany valuable, before they can make any money for themselves, outside of the small salaries for living ex penses which they have pledged themselves to draw while building up the busi ness of 27 more stores. It will require at least $30,000 to $35,000 to stock and to equip each one of 27 new stores, so you see the need of the new company getting local authorization to issue, all told, 100,000 shares of prefered stock at $10 the share or $1,000,000. So the monev comes in to the treasury of CONNORS HALLORAN STORES. INC. from those who buy shares of preferred stock, every dollar less the con servative, economical cost of distributing the stock will be immediately used in opening new stores. The new company is not seeking to secure money for any other purpose. Every dollar realized from the sale of preferred stock, please re member, must be used to ex pand the business of "Jim" Connors and "Joe" Hallor an, which is already success ful in the four stores now owned by them. Crooked things cannot stand the light of news paper publicity.

"Jim" knows my ideas about going to the public with all the facts about any proposition with which I have any connection. He knows I won't write any thing for anybody unless I believe 100 per cent, .that what I write is the truth. He knows, too, that I am a great believer in the principle that a writer must put conscience and sincerity into his work if he is to win the confidence of the people- and this ap plies particularly to writers who invite the public to in vest their money. I told "Jim" that. I would go along with him and write the story of their new ent er prise, because I have abso lute faith in the integrity of the individuals, as well as in the proposition itself. I am glad to do this, be cause I think this form of publicity will mean ulti mately the protection of people from investing in scraps of paper, instead of safe securities. You all know as well as I do that there has been a great deal of unscrupulous selling of alleged securities, in which people have lost iheir money. There is only one way to stop this sort oi: thing and that is to print the facte in the public press. Connecticut people are gcod partners to have in business. Personally, I have a wide acquaintance among Con necticut people. I like Con necticut people, on general principles but more par ti eularly because my father. Samuel Freeman, who was one of the great educators of his day, was born in Mans field, Tolland County, Janu ary 6, 1822. He left Mansfield at the age of 17 to become a teacher of a country school at Cool baugh's, Monroe County. Pa., where he met my mother, a pupil in his school. After they were married, they both taught in the pub lic schools of New Jei-sey, and they had a great deal to do with establishing the present high standards in the schools, of that State. My father, I am proud to say, won a national reputation as educator and fought many years to make it possible for the child of any parents to CUT THIS OUT AND MAIL TODAY The Connors-Halloran Stores Corporation, Stratfield Hotel Building, Bridgeport, Conn.

"Jim" Connors and "Joe" Halloran stana 100 per cent, with their associate workers. It was my privilege to meet the workers in the Bridgeport stores and to have an opportunity to talk to them about the ambition of their employers in owning a chain of 31 stores in Con necticut. I also talked to the workers in the New Britain and Hartford stores. In all the stores, the work ers gave enthusiastic en dorsement of the plans of the new corpora i ion, and they pledged themselves to buy all the preferred stock they can pay for now, out of their savings, and they asked to be permitted to buy more shares as they are able to save out of their earnings over a. period of a year or two. When men have the 100 per cent, backing of their own associates, they can be counted on to play square with everybody else. It is a sure sign of personal honor and thoughtful consideration of the rights of others. I honestly believe that buying 8 per cent, cumula tive yrreferred stock in a go ing business, such as is the business conducted b y "Jim" Connors and "Joe" Halloran, who all admit are able, honest men, is like own ing a first mortgage on valu able real estate. In a case of this kind, everything resolves itself finally into confidence in the integrity and ability of men to carry through their plans. The thousands of people that know "Jim" and "Joe" personally, who believe in them completely, means a fine certificate of character. Of course, you all are familiar now- with the frank statements printed in the newspapers signed personal ly by "Jim" Connors and "Joe" Halloran. You must admit that never before have any institutions or men gone to the public in quite such a frank, open and above-board way. Sincerely yours, William C.
