May 30. — Three times as many American flags have been sold so far this year as were sold in a comparable period in 1934. according to C. D. Southard, vice-president of the C'hicago Association of Commerce. "No special effort was made to push salo- of Hags, yet we find retailers making heavy demands for them." Mr. Southard said. "Whether this shows the result of efforts of patriotic organizations, a general awakening on the part of the public or reaction from threat of radicalism we do not know, but the fact is that there has heen a decided increase in the sale of the. colors."

COUNTY HAS RECORD Exceeded Quota at Every Call Which Has Been Made for Men. Tipton county held its annual observance of Memorial Day Thursday in an appropriate manner and there was a hush in the business and residential districts, reminding one of the poem of James Whitcomb Riley. "It's lonesome, sort o' lonesome, its a Sunday to me. It 'pears like, more than any day, I nearly ever see; Yet with the Stars and Stripes above, a-flutterin' in the air. On every soldier's grave I'd love to la y a lily there."
