The first version was, "I pledge allegiance to my Flag and to the Republic for which it stands; one nation indivisible, with liberty and justice for all." At the first National Flag Conference, held in Washington, D. C., June 14-15, 1923, to adopt a flag code, delegates for patriotic societies, civic and other organizations substituted the words "the Flag of the United States" for "my flag." That change was made because it was thought that the foreign-born might have in mind the flag of their native land when they said "my flag." Still another change was made at the secondNational Flag Conference in 1924 United Telephone Company of Texas plans to discontinue usage of five collection agencies within the Athens district, according to Manager Rick Brown.

"However, use of collection agents has been minimal," Brown stated. "Of the total average monthly billing in these five exchanges, only 15% is collected by outside agents." Other problems connected with collection agents were noted by Brown. "UTT must absorb the additional ex- pense incurred due to the compensation paid to agents for collecting paymen- ts," he said.
