THE COBSICANA SBMI-WEBKLY LIGHT, TUESDAY, JANUARY 24, 1989, THREE I iim-wo JUNIOR I1GH STUDENTS ARE 'RESENTEDJIPLOMAS INTERESTING COMMENCEMENT PROGRAM GIVEN ON FRIDAY MORNING Sixty-two graduates of the Corr , clcana Junior High school marched across the stage of the junior high auditorium Friday morning to receive their diplomas. Presen- tation ot diplomas was made by W. H. Norwood, superintendent of i public .schools. The program was * directed by O. P. Allen, principal of the Junior high school. Special star awards were made to James Newton Ellett and Mar- jorle Fowler. These students were selected for the awards by vote of the graduating class and faculty. Commencement addresses were made by Billie Crowley, James Newton Ellott, Russell Purifoy, Jr., and Alice Harwell. Invocation and benediction were , given by the Rev. G. A, Maclnnes, pastor of the Third Avenue Presbyterian church. The program was preluded by a violin solo by Mrs. Finis Farr, accompanied at the piano by Mrs. Edens Hyndman. V A11 speeches by students followed the patriotic theme of tho program. " Tho first address was made by James Newton Ellett, who npoke f on "Privlliges Beneath Our Flag." Ellett's speech follows: f Privileges Beneath Our Flag \, "Today as we consider the hard- 5,.' 1 ' ships, suffering, and uncertainty that the people are undergoing under flags of various nations, It Is fitting that we pause at this i time of our commencement to I name the privileges that are ours under the Red, White and Blue. "In order to fully appreciate these privileges let us turn through the pages of history to tbe...tinie when the foundation of oftv glorious democracy was laid. _»._ j$m May 25, 1787, we find a convention of delegates meeting In Independence Hall, Philadelphia, ,V for tho purpose of forming a stronger government without destroying the liberties of the people. The result of this meeting is the Constitution, which went into effect April 30, 1789, a date which marks the beginning of a new union. "The Introductory sentence, i which is often termed the preamble, gives the authority and the ends for which the Constitu- i tlon was made, and the words, I "We, the people," prove to us that wo are the beneficiaries of a heroic document which is ours for tho keeping. "Because our country Is founded on democratic principles, we, the people of the United States, enjoy both liberty and peace. We cherish the fact that we are allowed freedom of speech and press as long as we do not abuse this privilege with "treason and Indecency." Freedom of Worship "We enjoy not only the right of freedom of press and speech but also the privilege to worship and where we please, for in •lea there is no established hurch, and every man, woman, , and child may worship without ^i.Bny restrictions. .W "This freedom that Is maln- talned under the flag of the Red, White, and Blue tends to make us a peace-loving people. Again, living in an economically fortunate nation, bounded by friendly neighbors and separated from grasping foreign countries be- L cause of our geographic location; L we are imbued with a deep-root- F ed sense of well-being and peace, i a heritage that brings us unltm- i ited blessings, for peace Is more than lack of war. It Is the fertile soil in which the seeds of education may be sown and nurtur- /vxed; it Is the incentive for the development of a greater national art and literature; it provides a background for the teaching of all Christian ideals. We can realize all these by-products of peace ^ through tho preservation of our '•>' free schools, for In the schools wo not only learn the principles of true democracy but also practice the precepts. The training • : for good citizenship is a day by day process. Allegiance to the flag, student self-government, '»'-••. democratic elections by the stu- \: dent body, and student patrol i j. 'systems—all furnish opportunities i . for us to have an equal chance " to develop noble characters and realize our duties as citizens. "For these privileges—freedom of speech, freedom of press, freedom of religion—we are Indebted to the men and women of America who strove through difficulties to perpetuate the ideals that are set forth in our Constitution. Since this document was not made for one generation alone, it behooves us of the ipresent generation both to enjoy the privileges given and 'to defend and perpetuate the ideals set' forth In the Constitution of our nation." "The Red, Whlto and Blue," was the title of the speech made by Billie Crowley. It follows: The Bed,/White and Blue Forever "As a symbol of all the Ideals, privileges, and duties set forth in our Constitution stands our glorious American flag. From whence comes this banner of glory? The story of its making thrills the hearts of every American. Thomas : Jefferson's Declaration of In- 1 dependence marked the beginning of a new nation and a need for a uniformity in a flag, for the flags used previous to this time wera<pf no standard color sign'. They bore the images of pine trees, rattlesnakes, crescents, and mottoes. Even the flag - flown by Washington at Cambridge in 1776 was one of thirteen stripes which stood for the American colonies, but the English ensign showed that the . m/>the» country's authority was 9 still recognized. "Gradually the flag became symbolic of America. On June 14, 1777, the Continental Congress passed the resolution, "that the flag of the United States be thirteen stripes, alternate red and white; that the union be thirteen' white in a blue field rep• .QBonJIng a new . constellation." "On September 3, 1777, a true 'American flag came into exlst- '. enoe.' This flag was used until k!784 wften Congress added a star ' 8istripe, to.the flag for each /jjjtate, In 1818 when the a 'numbered twenty, the Stripes were reduced to thirteen '--signify tb,a thirteen original "•* -— p 0e ,ur WM ••-' to the union on the admission of every new state. "Each star in the flag today represents a specific state, the stars being arranged according to the dates of ratification of the Constitution by each state. The first star represents Delaware. The twenty-eighth, or the fourth on the fourth row, Is our very own—that of Texas. President Taft by executive order specified the location of the stars—six rows of eight each. "The flag is not merely a piece of cheap fabric; it connotes the spirit of a great and free people with an inspiring, stirring past. This banner breathes America united, strong, and efficient, equal to her tasks and responsibilities. It proclaims an individual Independence started by the valor and devotion of our ancestors, but continued as a *ac- red trust by each succeeding generation; and upon our willingness to sacrifice and endure as those at Valley Forge sacrificed and endured rests the Immortality. national "Its colors are more than paint splashed upon a canvas. "The red typical of'the blood that was shed In the war for freedom; the white, emblematic of the purity of the principles upon which the. government was organized; the blue, and azure snatched from heaven to represent the devotion and loyalty of the founders of the Republic" form a ban- DR.

Schacht, who had remained in the cabinet as minister with portfolio after he quit the economics ministry, will retain his cabinet status. The communique said special tasks would be assigned to him. Almost simultaneously with the announcement, an article by Funk appeared In a special edition of the magazine Der Vlcrjahresplan (Four Year Plan) threatening to transfer Germany's trade with the United States to' the Balkans.

Russell Purifoy, Jr., spoke on "Rules for the Flag." Purlfoy's speech follows: How to Display and Some of the General Kules for the Flag "On June 14, 1923, a National Flag Conference, attended by representatives from the Army, the Navy, and the principal patriotic, she used ,to get from America. Just at breakfast time Funk received a letter from Hitler's new chancellery giving him three specific tasks. The most Important of these was Hitler's request that he transform the Schacht-controlled institution "into a German bank of Issue unconditionally subjected to civic, and educational organlza- the sovereignty of the state in tlons of the country, was held in Washington for the purpose of adopting a Flag Code prescribing correct ways of displaying and respecting the Flag of the United States. In addressing the opening session of the Confer- once, President Harding said: "Everything we do to bring the Flag into proper consideration by the citizenship of the Republic Is highly commendable and deserves to bo cordially endorsed. Every salutation to the Flag makes my consecration to the conformity with national socialist :>rlnclples'.' The other two tasks given Funk —now Field Marshal Hermann Wilhclm Gocrlng's right-hand man an director of the four-year plan Country and the Flag a little moro secure." "The following rules for displaying the flag aro based on the . adopted Code: i "The Flag should be displayed from sunrise to sunset on buildings and on stationary flag staffs In the open. "Unless there Is some special reason for doing so, the Flag should not be flown In rainy or stormy weather. "The Flag should always bo raised briskly and lowered slowly and ceremoniously. Should Not Touch Ground "When tho flag Is being raised or lowered, It must never be allowed to touch the ground. "When the United States Flag and Flags of other nations, states, or cities, or pennants of societies, are flown from adjacent staffs, the United States Flag Is hoisted first and lowered last. . "When the United States Flag Is flown with flags or other nations all staffs should be of tho same height and the flags of approximately equal size. "International usage forbids the display of the Flag of any one nation above that of any other nation in time of peace. "In a group of flags of different nations, an arrangement to which no one could take exception would be to place the flags alphabetically alternately on the right and on the left of the United States Flag. "Under no circumstances should the Flag ever be draped over the hood, top, or sides of an automobile. The Flag should be fastened to the body, or clamped to tho radiator cap. "To indicate mourning when the Flag is flown from a stationary staff tho Flag Is placed at "-half-staff. The position of half- staff, or half-mast Is considered to be some distance (not necessarily half way down) from the top of the staff. When the Flag Is to be flown at half-staff, It should be hoisted to the peak for an instant and then lowered to the half-staff. • Before being lowered for the day, the Flag should be raised to the peak. Should Not Show Disrespect "Disrespect should ' not be shown to the Flag of the United States. The Flag should not be dipped to any person or any thing. "Do not display the Flag with the union down except as a signal, of distress. Do not place any other flag or pennant above or to the right of the Flag of the United States. Do not place any object or emblem of any kind on or above the Flag of the United States. "Do not carry the Flag flat or horizontally, but always aloft and free. Do not let the Flag touch the ground or the floor, or trail in the water. Do not use tho Flag as a portion* of a costume or of an athletic uniform. Do not embroider It upon cushions or handkerchiefs, or print it on paper napkins or boxes. Do not. use the Flag in any form of advertising or fasten and ad. vertislng sign to a pole from which the Flag is flown. Do not display, use, or store the Flag in such a manner as will permit it to be easily soiled or damaged. "The Flag of the United States is an artistic, well-proportioned emblem whose beauty should not be marred, and the more we adhere to the rules of caring for the flag, the more we shall appreciate the great things which it characterizes." "The Star Spangled Banner" was the title of the address made by Alice Harwell. It follows: Birth of Our National Anthem "No anthem ever written has a more historic, Inspiring, and patriotic setting than "The Star- Spangled Banner," which was composed In 1814 when the United States and England were at war. After the British redcoats had burned Washington, the enemy moved on Baltimore, where the soldiers were to attack by land while a powerful British fleet formed for action off Fort McHenry, at the water gates 'Of the city. All during the night of September 13-14, the entire fleet concentrated its fire on the Fort, from whose flagpole flew the Star-Spangled Banner, "Francis Scott Key, from the District of Columbia, was held as a captive on one, of the British warships.

Funk, American exports said, has sworn to push Germany's barter system for all it is worth. Schacht, on the other hand, has been quoted as saying Barter was a "medieeal method" and that 'it Is Incredibly barbarous to exchange machinery against grain, radios against tobacco, or rubber against cotton, as if we were sav- aves bartering ivory against shells." Schacht, although the originator of the German barker system, believed, the experts said, that it was only temporary and that Germany would return to a liberal system of trade after a time. Trade men gave little notice to Funk's threat to switch German trade from the Ullted States to the Balkans because, they said, Germany for a long time had been buying here only goods absolutely needed and which. would ba hard to get elsewhere at a fair price. They said they believed the amount of German buying In this country had reached in recent months just about the lowest point it could go. and field questions in the country.

He declared that he tried to put out winning teams. He pointed out, however, that character building was a most Important factor in athletics, and that under the right leadership, athletics have a place In a school system. Among the points stressed were the development of willpower,, an ability to give and take, and to stage a comeback after defeat, with the attendant good in after life. Co-operation with associates and those In authority are other things learned in athletics, and most athletes are gentlemen, tho speaker continued. Discussing the question of scholastic work by athletes, Llttlefleld challenged anyone to show whore the athletes school work Is inferior to any other group in a school, stating that ono athlete not doing what he was supposed to do in school work attracts considerable attention. Coach Llttlefleld said that In many Instances at the present time, fathers go home and relax ind do not spend tho time with their sons to become confidants and pals, and proper athletic supervision under the right supervision aids the boys in many respects. Urged Boys Be Prepared In concluding his remarks, the speaker, directing his remarks pointedly to tho boys of the football club, stated that there Is a place somewhere that each boy will fit in to the program, and he appealed to them to prepare themselves as best they can so that they will be ready to make the most of their chance and opportunities.

LONDON, Jan. 20.—(ff)—London diplomatic and financial circles interpreted the ousting of . Dr. HJadmar Schacht from the presidency of the German Relchsbank today as a prelude to a more radical German economic and monetary policy. Informed sources believed he was deposed because he told Chancellor Hitler the German economic structure could not withstand the present heavy expenditures on building and armaments. Schacht was said to have urged that no further measures be taken against Jews until discussions were completed with the intergovernmental refugee committee (representatives Trash and Automobile Fires Caused Runs A trash fire near the intersection of West Second avenue and North Sixteenth street' caused a run for the fire department about 7:30 Thursday night.

The white haired Iowa senator, his voice husky with emotion, asserted he bore some very strong personal resentments In connection with the Hopkins appointment, but declared ho would not let them Influence his vote. Recalling that Hopkins had announced before the Iowa primary that If ho were a citizen of Iowa ho would voto for Otha Woarln, Gillette's opponent, Gillette asserted this statcmnct was deliberately made and was not the result of a "slip" made by Hopkins at a press conference. Gillette's discussion followed stronger words from Senator Holt D-WVa) who urged the senate o get a complete record of WPA 13 administered by Hopkins before his elevation to tho cabinet. Holt said he would not voto for con- Irmatlon. Only Reason For Elevation. "Tho only reason for elevation of Hopkins to secretary of com- ncrcc is his handling of WPA" .ho youngest senator said as the senate started its second day of debate on Hopkins. "I am not trying to delay a vote," Holt said. "But the people and tho senate have a right to know something about the conduct of WPA." . Holt, who talked for three TOUTS yesterday, charged today :hat moro than 1,000,000 persons wero added to WPA payrolls dur- ng the year before tho November election. "Payrolls were padded and added to In every state In which there was an important election," Holt said. Public galleries were crowded again. From Barkley came a prediction that not more than 20 votes would be cast against confirmation of Hopkins. Cites Figures. Citing what ho said were WPA figures, Hold said tho agency Increased Its employment in 1938 from 2,807,931 on July 2 to 3,25$,-' 592 on November 17. During tho period from July to .October, ho said, employment service reports showed approximately 900,000 persons returned to their jobs In private employment. "While nearly a million individuals were added to private payrolls," Holt shouted, "the WPA was adding 400,000 to its rolls. You may say that there was not politics In that, but It looks suspicious to mo." Turning to a discussion of WPA employment In Kentucky whore Barkley was a successful candidate for re-election, Holt said WPA spent $1,884,658 In that state In April and $3,369,425 In August. When Holt began a discussion of WPA policy In Pennsylvania, Senator Tydlngs (D-Md) broke In to suggest that "we ought to havo tho senator from Pennsylvania here." Guffey Strolls Through. Holt agreed to Interrupt his speech so that there might be a roll call. Soon Guffey strolled Into the chamber, but merely walked through tho rear of tho chamber and disappeared into tho Republican cloak room. Holt declared that between the end of December, 1937, and Apr!" 1938, just preceding tho Pennsyl vanla election, 68,000 persons were added to WPA rolls of the state, or an Increase of approximately 40 p cr cent. "Of course there wasn't any politics about that," the Wesi Virginian said scornfully. "It Jusl happened that they found out about the state of Pennsylvania having scuh a great amount o unemployment Just prior to the primary." Addressing himself to democrat Ic mcmbors> of the senate at one point, Holt declared: "If wo don't clean up the WPA before 1940 we're going to pay with moro scats In tho Unltcc States senate.
