be before them as an object lesson from its stars and stripes let them learn the story of liberty as exemplified ia the lives of Lincoln and the patriotic sons of the re who by their suffering and death rendered the imperishable fame of this illustrious trio possible le them learn to look upon the American flag by angels hands to valor given with as much reverence as did the loosmpoa the Ark of the Covenant le of boys and girls ia our elementary schools be thus imbued with a reverence for the flag and all it repre Then the future of the republic is assured and that flsg shall fonver wave Oer the land of the free aad the home of the This recommendation from the com manderinchief is a most worthy one deserving the careful attention of al loyal and as far as it is possible should aad will be carried out bat the Grand Army as a are poor every dollar that they get ia is waitei and must go out to the relief o some distressed old or his fam therefore it is impracticable to carry out these recommendations to their fnl This being the what bet ter remains to ba done than for loyal Iowa to authorize that these flags be dis played from all public schools during each day that school is ia the ex pense to be paid from the school As to whether it is proper or expediea to display these from our public it would seem that there ough not to be aay need for but as it is practically a new it is bet perhaps to refer to the benefits that wculc arise from the enactment of the This is a government of the by the people and for the it is a log leal that the qua ity of toe government will depend ea tirely upon the quality of the people of the This being a is it not vastly important then that our chil dren who are being educated in the elementsoy and who will be the future citiiens o the should have a properly patriotic and governmental education so that when they arrive at maturity they will exercise their rights of in an entirely correct and patriotic This being true of our own native how much more true it mus be of the children of foreign born people who come to this country to find a free from the tyranny and oppression o their foreign The children of these people will be apt scholars in patriotism and we should give them the Mo better illustration can be given history of educated patriotism han the actions of these foreign born people during our civil whan they followed the old flag to the treat side by side with the native born Americans this was the result of their knowledge of what the flag represented to After displaying the flag from every public school the next and not east important step in is to introduce into our schools a military grade of There is ao nation on earth that is so naturally military aa our own and this arises almost solely from the fact that we an the most patriotic nation of the earth it is this jatriotism and military tolly recognized by the countries of the old that renders our country sate sad impregnable to all outside aad enables us to reduce our steading army to a maximum ot officers aad It is in this way that we can not oaly teach pun aad but the boys will have learned more or less of the arts ot valuable in their

a large body of men who were taught ia their boyhood days somethiag of military duties sad who would drilled sufficiently to to step right into the raaka aad very quickly qualify themselves for vetera army they would be such soldiers when organizedinto battal ions as General Grant described as not only a but a tanking mVit against whom ao troops ia the world could By this plan we not oaly add anew pleasure to the life of our but a aew qualification for the duties of manhood the other considera tion touched upon previously is that then is a large foreign population ing to our country every they have been brought up under the flags of Kng Norway and they come hen for a new home to be of us and with our prosperity is their they become voters and perhaps It to their it is to our interest that they shall be come familiar with American history and with American flag displayed from our school buildings would soon have a special significance for it would inspire in them pa love of their new country and a devotion to American liberty that in no other way could be instilled in their minds it would help assimilate our people into one homogenous The wisest men of this day will not deny but that the English language is some day not far distant destined to be come the almost universal language ot the The American people repre in a very large English language the flag represents our If these things an true and who can doubt is there not a wonderful future ahead for our people and our and what a mighty influence in the affairs of nations will it be to have all our people intensely loyal and patriotic to American institu Such intense patriotism and loyalty can only come through the edu cation of our It fa said that ia the year young men educated ia our schools and colleges offered their services to go abroad as missionaries to foreign What influence young men will or how farreach ing the results of their work will ao one can tell but it exemplifies the point that our children should be so patriotic ally educated that their weight of in fluence will always be for Amerieaa in stitutions and the old Nearly all the large universities aad colleges in this country have voluntarily put ia their course of a military class aad have one or more well organ ized companies of Is there any good reason why our public schools should be deprived of the same privi and ia it not a fact that these leges and universities have adopted this system because they find it useful and popular and because it is They will also be useful in our public and in a sense than they can in auy privately conducted It has been argued that a flag placed in rooms of our school buildings would answer the same purpose and be cheaper than one displayed from the top of the To this the answer that a flag no size is mentioned placed inside of a building becomes a part of the furniture and fixtures and after a short time becomes unnoticed to the same ex teat that other furniture becomes un The if

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
