Saint Patrick's Day came and went, Wednesday, without undue casualty, but with some considerable amount of verbal argument between ye olde sons of Erin and others. It seems that there is some contention that Saint Patrick himself was not born an Irishman—hold everything, you wearers of the green—this is only part' of it. Saint Patrick, according to historical data presented to prove the point, was born either in southwestern Britain or Scotland, and carried off by Irish marauders who took him to their native land. During his captivity, he escaped to Gaul, where he was ordained, and returned to Ireland, proceeding to convert Ulster. But whether or not Saint Patrick was an Irishman, Bill Barry doesn't care. He unfurled two Irish flags of green, with harp in the middle of each one, and planted them in his recreation parlor in a conspicuous place. Charlie Ostwinkle. seeking another Irish flag, borrowed a third one from Bill. The flags have been used on St. Patrick's day for the last 20 years, Bill said.
