R. C, through its state departments and they through local eorprt like the one at Cherryvale, took it up. Mrs. Hendricks, whose love of the Stars and Stripes was somcth'uvr very much like worship, thought at once of the pledge of allegiance written by the high school boy who now was with Uncle Sam's fighting men across the Pacific, and she submitted it to the national committee which was to make the selection. Out of thousands upon thousands of manuscripts which reached the committee and were read and passed on, the pledge of Frank Bellamy was chosen as the one expressing in fewest words and strongest phrases the loyalty of an American to his flag and to the Announcement of New Ownership of the Overland Sales and Service Station Saturday a deal was consummated whereby the Overland Sales & Service Station passed from the hands of Hahn Bros, to Workman & Ross.

S. Smith, author of "America," and others from whose pens have come undying expressions of fealty to the United States. Frank Bellamy returned from the Philippines shattered in health by his stay in the tropics. It is an interesting fact that he knew nothing of the adoption of his pledge of allegiance by the patriotic societies of America until Mrs. Hendricks told him when he arrived in his home town. "We are proud of you, Frank," she said, "and the national W. R. C. has passed a resolution thanking you for writing it." The boy flushed. "It didn't express half what I tried to write," he said. The physicians who examined him on his arrival home found that the white plague already had him in his grip and ordered him to the mountains. He went to Colorado and, since he could no longer follow music as a vocation, he took up art, for which he also had a talent, and his own mother having died, he looked to Mrs. Hendricks for advice and corresponded 1 lip I ii m routed from Kansas City to t,arneu, Iola, Erie and Parsons.

Mr. Gbssard has been named by Governor Capper to look after this important work in Labette county and he is setting about it in a way that forecasts its success. Mr. Gossard has issued a statement to the people of the county and asks that it be given the widest publicity through the newspapers, inviting every town and township to send as many people to the Altamont meeting as possible. This matter of incrasing the food output of the nation is far more patriotic than lip service to the 'flag and every one who caused two pecks of wheat to grow vale to Coffeyville.

That is the scene presented to the visitor in any public schoolroom in America on Washington's birthday or Flag day, or any other occasion of a patriotic program. And the visitor, man or woman, old or young, cannot but carry away a never fading picture of the scene, for it is patriotism in the making. So universal is the custom and so chief a part does the Flag Pledge play in America's expression of loyalty that it is hard to realize that it came into existence less, than twenty years ago. But in spite of its modern origin the public knows little of ita authorization and still less of its author. New interest in it has-eome in the preparations for war with Germany and many requests for information regarding it have reached the Star in the last few days. '-America owes its Flag Pledge to Kansas. It was written by a Kansas boy and inspired by a Kansas woman. Here is the story, told now for the first time.
