What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

( h o I V s S iN IAM A. '•§ A*- L e N e e d A F . l o g Every day I sit down at my desk and pretend to study. A- bout every two min­ utes, my eye wanders to •the front of the room, • What do I see there of any signifi­ cant importance? I see boys and the American flag. ■ The boys seem to be in fine shape; • but it seems to me the flag is not. We have admitted two new states to the union, which are: Hawaii and Alaska. This consists of fif­ ty states which are represented as fifty stars on the present U.S.- flag. Why can’t we be more patriotic to our country by dis­ playing a ■ flag with fifty stars? \ If someone was una­ ware of the U.S. flags traditional colors. they would look at the one in the assem­ bly and say, ’’Well, there’s an odd color combination for a flag: red. beige, and blue'*. Besidesf the flag is soiled, and it is hung on the wall with metal tacks These tacks are placed through the flag and not through the edging on the side, Tc me, thoso big tacks mean a way of defacing the flag. -Concerning this situation of getting a new flag, we can not go up to the worn out flag, rip it dowr^ wad it up, stick it in a card board box. and put it away in the attic. The ap­ proved r customary method of disposal re­ quires that the union be cut from the re­ mainder of the flag and the two nieces burned. . It is my opinion, and the opinion of several others, that we need a new flag in this study hall. Let’s see what we can do about . getting a fifty star: flag.. VL A r e S e r v i c e ' m A p p r e c i o t e d ? ? ? Have you f jht very much lately about your service­ man? Do you write regularly to this im­ portant part of our country’s. defense? Stop and think about those guys! Bure, they knew what they were getting into* but they never forget home and the loved one s, Picture that bro­ ther, cousin, or boy­ friend living with a bunch of men in bar­ racks, drilling con­ stantly, and never getting any real home cooking. Now you're getting that guilty feeling about those unanswer­ ed letters home on your desk. Letters are few and far be­ tween for those guys and they’re most wel­ come when they do ar­ rive. Let's let those guys know that al­ though they're not fighting a- war , they are missed, especial^ on the home-front . Write those letters and send that batch of home made cookies. Let the . guys know we're proud of them and show them that they’re missed. MF O u r P e p C l u b N e e d s S u p p o r t \Are you going to the game this weekend -- ?.
