for America Wherever these men lie in the cemeteries at home or in the fields of the dead overseas flowers and flags will be placed by reverent hands on the sod beneath which they rest Mil lions of beautiful blossoms will be heaped to pay the annual tribute of a grateful and sor rowing nation A decade ago there were no wreaths or garlands heaped on the graves in France and Bel glum Raw mounds of earth these graves were then marked by hurriedly madecrosses of wood The columns of men moving past them tato bat tie had ho time to place floral tributes The business of death and destruction was still going on and man had scant time even to bury those who fell Blooms Appeared But nature great and kindly cared for those who were re turned to the earths breast Around and over the graves in the shellchurned soil appeared little blooms of red looking like drops of heroes blood They were wild poppies sprinkled by nature above the graves which man was too engaged to tend Nature made the poppy the heroes flower The men who fought in France brot back an indelible picture of the poppies blooming among the graves or about the yet unburied dead To them the poppy seemed the natural tribute to a brave man fallen for his country The poppy be came the memorial flower of the American Legionand qf the nation On May 25 the poppies of France and Flanders will be brot to Mason City by the Glaus enWorderi unit of the American Legion They will be offered to everyr one to be worn on the lapel above tha heart It la in Jtha heart of America that our war dead lie enshrined no matter where their bodies lie What could bo more appropriate than to wear above the heart on our day of remembrance their own bright red poppy Serves Double Mission And the popples which the women of theauxiliary wul offer havebeen made by com rades of the dead whom they who were disabled in the same hattles in which tha dead gavetheir lives Every penny which is contributed for the popples will go to the re lief
