Frank Kohlhaas Mayor of the-City of Algona. In - laws, sweethearts, cousins and close friends must not, under government regulations, display service flags for individuals. Tha privilege is reserved for members of the immediate family. Since there has been confusion in general regarding the proper service flag and its rightful display, a look at the act of congress passed last Oct. 12, is the best way to settle questions. The flag, itself, shall have a white fleld with a red border—the red to match the red of Old Glory A blue star—or as many blue stars as there are individuals of THE IMMEDIATE FAMILY in service —can be placed within the border Gold Star If the individual represented by the star is killed or dies in service, a smaller gold star may be affixed over the blue star so that the blue forms a border for the gold. There should be no printing, no cartoon, no photograph, no slogan on the flag. There should be no mark of specific branch of service—such as "NAVY" or "ARMY. 1 Other than the simple stars, there is one exception.

Out THE SILVER STAR HAS NO PLACE on the flag. Early in the war, some persons used silver stars to designate an individual overseas. Others used them for "missing" or for wounded service men. But the silver star was RULED OUT. The flag for the immediate family may be displayed properly, by mother, father, sister, brother, wife, husband, daughter or son of the person in the services. The law permits and the regulations call for "a service lapel button or pin having the same design and the SAME RESTRICTIONS as to display of the flag. Rules The rules for display of the service flag follow: 1. When displayed from a staff in a church or public auditorium— if displayed from the chancel or on the speaker's platform — the flag of the United States will occupy the position of honor at the speaker's right—to the left for the audience. The service flag will be on the speaker's left, as he faces the audience. 2. Displayed a'gainst a wall with the flag of the United States, Old Glory will be on the right—the flag's own right—and its staff will be in front of the service flag's staff. 3. The service flag, when no flown from a staff, mifst be displayed flat—that is, not wrinkled or draped—and it must NOT be hung at an angle. It can hang vertically, that is, with its lengtl up and down, or horizontally— crosswise. However, it must be placed so that one point of the star is 'uppermost. If it has 'more than one star, the point of the top star should be uppermost. Cautions Cautions regarding display of ;he service flag declare that it must never be used as a covering :or statutes, monuments, etc., in unveiling exercises. It should never ;ouch anything beneath it, such as floor, ground, window sill, or merchandise. Other cautions include warning against use of the service flag draped or festooned or drawn back n folds. It must never be used as a covering for a ceiling. It shall not be used as a receptacle for receiving, holding, carrying or delivering anything. It. must not be used for advertising purposes in any manner whatsoever. The regulations say the service flag shall not be embroidered on such articles as cushions, pillows, handkerchiefs—or printed or impressed on paper napkins, tablecloths, boxes, or anything that is designed \for temporary use and discarded.
