In 1909, Mrs Dodd presented this idea to her own minister. Through him, the plan was bi ought, to the attention of tho Spokane Ministerial Association, which approved it. In I!I1D. the Spokane Young Men's Christian Association Have impetus to the Father's day idea by Kiltmn aside a day to honor the fathers nf the community in particular, all fathers uenerally. Mrs Dodd had hoped that the first. Father's Day would be ob- seivecl on June' 5th. her own father's birthday. However, there was not enough time for the ministers to prepare their special sermons for the day. The third Sunday in June was thus set aside for the observance and this day has been employed as the Father's Day date. William Jennings Bryan was first among the many great men giving endorsement to the idea. "Too much emphasis cannot be placed upon the relationship between parent and child," he stated. Woodrow Wilson helped mark the day officially in 1916. And, Calvin Coolidge was president in 1924 when he first recommended that the day be nationally observed. Mrs Dodd's father, the original inspiration for the special day, died in 1919, having lived to see his own tribute become a reality throughout the nation. Mrs Dodd also selected the official flowers for Father's Day — a white rose for remembrance, a red rose for living tribute. Father's Day is now also observed in Canada, Latin America, France, England. Belgium, Holland, South Africa, Australia, Yugoslavia and in the Scandinavian countries.
