Bert Russell, who died in World War I. McGuiggan considers the flag pole and his plans to display the flag on appropriate days as a memorial to Russell and his own brother, who was killed in World War I while fighting with an Irish regiment. McGuiggan is a veteran of World War I, also. He served in France. Seven relatives of McGuiggan fought in World War I and only three came back. Ai It stands the flag pole and the ceremonies which will attach to It are a sort of memorial to all of the fallen in the family. McGuiggan sees in the fading practice of flag displaying a repetition of what is happening to Christmas (toys) and Memorial Day (picnics). The meaning of the holiday is being lost. Failure to display a flag is a symptom of the loss of something deeper. McGuiggan fears. Tied, up with it it the behav- iour of men who don't remove their hats when the flag goes by. Most.of those who commented on the situation thought that now that a new flag U being issued—the one with the 50 stars —it is a good time for everyone to stock up. When the next suitable holiday come* around then break them out. Nobody expects the city to bloom with flags on the flrit time but if there are more than there were tho past Fourth of July, it may be t-nough to re- vine tht discouraging trend British Guiana raised a record 94.773-ton rice crop in 1959, Georgetown reports.
