That was in the period in which the United States of America was in its formative years. • It happens that Greensburg was established as the seat of justice in Decatur County on June 14, the day which is now designated as Flag Day. The first American flag was designed during the Revolutionary War. It was not until April 14, 1818 that Congress passed a resolution, providing for a definite outline for the nation s flag. The resolution prescribed 13 stripes in red for the original colonies that became states. A new star in the constellation is added on the Fourth of July after statehood is granted. The American nag now has 50 stars. The last star was added in 1961 after Alaska was granted statehood. Observance of Flag Day was called for by President Woodrow Wilson in 1916. It was during the administration of President Harry S. Truman that a bill was signed, establishing Flag Day as a national observance. Flag Day is not a legal holiday. But, it is a time for Americans to pledge allegiance anew to the nation's flag and the ideals which it represents. Despite the efforts of some in the nation who would discredit patriotism, the American flag stands throughout the world as the symbol of freedom. The flag has a long history of which all Americans should be proud. During World War I President Wilson succinctly stated the objective of Flag Day. He said at an observance on June 14, 1917: "We meet to celebrate Flag Day, because this flag which we honor and under which we serve is the emblem of our unity, our power, our thought and purpose as a nation." Greensburg can also observe June 14 as the anniversary ol" its founding. Sister Testifies— Castro Is Obsessed Hatred of U. S. By DANIEL F. KELLY WASHINGTON (UPI) — Fidel Castro's hatred of the United States is so intense that "the best gift he could receive would be a half-million Americans killed in a nuclear war." This is how the bearded Cuban premier's sister describes his feelings toward the powerful nation 90 miles north of his Communist island. Juanita Castro, 32, appeared Friday before the House Com- APPEARANCES CAN BE DECEIVING This is especially true where your health is concerned.

She told them her brother ]is so "obsessed" with the destruction of the United States t is impossible for Americans to fully comprehend his feelings of hatred. The pretty, slim Miss Castro was asked to testify about con 1 ditions in Cuba from the time she supported her brother's :akeover of the country in 1959, through her growing disenchantment with his government until she fled the country last year. She made these points: —She is sure Castro agents are in the United States trying :o stir unrest, particularly among Negroes. —"The immense majority of the Cuban people are against the Castro regime." —Castro would like to follow Communist China's "hard line" toward non - Communift countries, but he needs the goods Russia sends him so he must follow Soviet policy. "Fidel's heart is in Peking, but his stomach is in Moscow." —She believes President Johnson's policies in Viet Nam and the Dominican Republic have given her people "the hope that they shall not be alone in their fight to obtain their freedom."

Some Facts About Towing Charges "How can I protect myself against charges for hauling my car to a garage in case it breaks down on the road?" a salesman wants to know. If you are on a business trip and your car is disabled through a mechanical failure of some kind, you'll be protected against the costs of having it towed to the garage if you have a towing and labor insuring agreement in your automobile insurance policy. The agreement protects you, not only for business travel, but even if you are on a vacation trip or if you are just taking a relatively short ride. In addition to providing protection when you are driving your own car, the insurance can also apply if you are using a vehicle that you do not own but may have borrowed or rented for trip. Protection against towing and labor costs applies whether you are on a highway, a thruway or a back country road and the agreement relates not only to the cost of towing the vehicle but also to those labor charges that are incurred at the place where your car broke down. The limit of protection for this charge is $25 in most states. If you do not already have such an agreement included in your automobile insurance but do considerable traveling by car in business or are planning a long vacation, you may find it worth your while to give your agent a call. He can explain the details of the insurance and also inform you of the limits that apply in your area. This column will be glad to answer questions you may have about property or casualty insurance.
