General Logan's first Memorial day
proclamation was read by Miss Mab:o

Rev. C. II. Hanks of Norwalk, Ohio,
formerly of Owosso, delivered a most
excellent memorial address, pavine
high tribute to the men who offered
people. He took occasion to mention
the ungrateful alien, who finds asy
lum on our shores and who repays
America for her kindness by seeking
to incite revolution and destroy ou
government.
Every man, woman and child in the
audience, raised their voices in sing
ing America as the closing number
of the program, after which Rev. F.
D. Draper pronounced benediction.
Immediately following the exercises
at the armory, parade was formed on
West Exchange street under the di-
rection of Captain Oscar J. Reynolds,
marshal of the day and his aides,
Lieut. Lawrence and Sergeant Claud
Cope, and passed through streets
banked with people.

militarism that freedom might sur

Chas. Lahman. The speakers car was
followed by automobiles carrying the
veterans of '61, who although still
young in spirit, no more attempt the
long march to the cemetery. Follow
ing them came the cars carrying
members of the W. R. C. and of the
auxiliary to Patterson-Dawson post.
Several hundred school children wav
ing flags and wearing smiles on their
faces, marched behind a serious faced
youngster who beat a small drum,
with all the vigor of a crack drummer.
Arriving at the little lake that
nestles in the hills of the burying
ground, the parade ceased, and memo
rial services were held for the sailor
dead. A small boat, flower laden, was
anchored in the center of the lake,
symbolizing the burial of the dead
at sea. Mrs. Charles F. Lahman sang
most beautifully a memorial hymn.
Proceeding to the soldiers' rnonu
ment, the G. A. R. service was held
and a large wreath, bearing the
names of 29 Shiawassee county boys
who are today sleeping under the
white wooden crosses in France, was
laid on the monument. Twenty-nine
flags, one for each of these martyrs,
were fastened in the wreath. At th
conclusion of the ceremonies, witness
ed by hundreds, a firing squad stepped
from the ranks of Company 22, and
awakened the echoes with three vol
leys. Then the sweet sad notes of taps
were wafted from the bugle and the
dead were left to sleep on.
ORION SEASON OPENS MAY 29
The season at the Lake Orion re
sort opened Saturday, May 29, with
three days of special events to mark
the opening. Great improvements
have been made during the .Winter
and Spring. Park Island has been
the scene of great activity. The Park
has been leased to Thomas M. Reid of
Jackson, Mich. A large restaurant
and coliseum building has been erect
ed; soft dring stands, bowling alleys,
skee ball outfit and other attractive
games have been installed. A new
high circle swing has been placed on
the lake front and at night this will
be brilliantly illuminated. The dance
hall has been remodelled. In addition
to dancing there .will be cabaret spe
cialties by entertainers every night
except Sundays, until Labor Day.
Bellevue Hotel is now open for guests
with Mr. and Mrs. John C. Tompkins
as managers. The large fleet of pas-
eger boats, launches, row boats and
canoes are all refitted and ready for
the opening day. Nearly all of the
cottages are rented and inquiries for
accommodations indicate that Lake
Orion will have the biggest season in
its history.
Co-Operative Marketing Successful
During the first 100 days of 1920,
68 cooperative carloads of hogs were
shipped from 22 Arkansas counties.
The 6,480 hogs in the cars were own
ed by 700 different farmers, or an
average of more than 10 shippers to
each carload. Returns totalling
$127,590.52 were received for these
hogs at the central markets. The
average cost of shipping was only 94.3
cents per hundredweight. The amount
made above the highest price offered
locally, where there was a local mar
ket, amounted to $260 per car, or a
total saving of more than $17,500 on
all shipments.
The season for shipping Arkansas
cattle has not started; but in 1919
cattle shipments from that State ex
ceeded the cooperative shipments of
hogs, and indications this year are
that almost all the Arkansas cattle
will be shipped cooperatively.
The cooperative shipping of live
stock by the method advocated by the
United States Department of Agricul
ture has been found practicable and
profitable in all sections of the coun
try where live stock is produced in
connection with general or specializ
ed systems of farming.
MIX-WOOD
On Saturday afternoon at the
church of Christ parsonage, Miss
Helen Mix and Roy Wood were unit
ed in marriage by Rev. F. D. Draper.
They were attended by Miss Bertha
Fricke and Will Leitch, of this city.
Miss Mix is the daughter of Mrs.
Chas. Mix, of Thompsonville but for
the past year has made her home with
her aunt, Mrs. A. J. Hickey, Pine
street, and has been employed in the
Colonial tea room. The groom has a
position as foreman at the American
Malleables. After a week's motor
trip to Thompsonville they will be at
home to their friends at 612 Dewey
street.

PROCLAMATION FOR FLAG DAY
In paying homage to the flag of
our country we honor not merely a
piece of bunting but those things
for which the flag stands, liberty, jus
ticef equality. The flag of the United
States symbolizes the national ideals
for which our fathers were willing to
give their lives, and in our day their
sons have proved that they too ar
ready to defend to the uttermost "Our
great, free institutions which are the
hope of the home as well as the na
tion." It is proposed this year to celebrate
in conjunction with Flag Day, June
12th, as Neighbors' Day to promote1
nation-wide neighborliness, and June
13th as Community Sunday to im
press men and women of all faiths
with the spiritualizing influence on
the individual of unified neighborhood .
service.
Therefore, I, Albert E. Sleeper,
Governor of the State of Michigan, do
issue this my proclamation, and Ur
gently request that Monday, the 14th
day of June, 1920, be observed as
Flag Day.
I further suggest, in compliance
with the request of the National
Neighbor's Day committee, that Sat
urday, June 12th, and Sunday, June
13th, be observed respectively as
Neighbors' day and Community Sun
day. On these three days let flags be
displayed on both public and private
buildings.
Let us honor the flag.
Given under my hand and the Great
Seal of the State this first day of
June, in the year of our Lord, one
