Sometime for good reasons and sometime just to be doing it. Wouldn't it be wonderful if these people would demonstrate when our flag is abused and degraded. This is part of our heritage and should be very close to all of our hearts. This is number nine in my series of flag stories. FLYING FLAG AT NIGHT Some loyal but thoughtless citizens believe that as long as they display the Stars and Stripes that is true patriotism. So, day and night, through fair and stormy weather, they let the flag fly until it is whipped and torn into an unsightly rag. Should the U. S. flag be flown at night? The federal code says the universal custom is to display the flag only from sunrise to sunset on building and stationary flagstaffs in the open. There are some places and occasions when the Stars and Stripes may be flown at night. Those are over the national capitol building in Washington, D. C., from a permanent fort or ship engaged in battle or upon occasions when a special patriotic effect is desired. Four American flags are flown from the national capitol building. One flies from the west front, one from the east front, one from the Senate wing and one from the House wing The flags ~on the west and east front are flown daily, the year around, 24 hours a day, indicating that the capitol is the government's number one building. Those flags are half-masted when the nation mourns. Flags on the Senate and House wings tell whether Congress is in adjour- nment or in session. If congress is ad- journed the flags are not flown. If congress is merely recessed the flags on the two wings are flown day and night until Congress resumes. When the House and Senate are in session the flags are raised daily at the hour there respective branches convene. They are lowered when the lawmaRers adjourn for the day. The flag flies day and night over the Frederick, Maryland, grave of Francis Scott Key, author of the national an- them, "The Star Spangled Banner." Congress also permits the flag to be flown 24 hours a day at Fort McHenry, Baltimore, Maryland, in com- memoration of Francis Scott Key's "Star Spangled Banner" song and at the World War Memorial at Wor- chester, Massachusetts. There are practical reasons for restricting display of the Stars and Stripes between sunset and sunrise. First, since a flag displayed at noght cannot be seen except at very close range, what is the sense of flying it? Second, an flag flying outdoors at night would be subject to damage by winds and inclement weather while everyone sleeps. Third, our flag should never be forgotten--hence the daily care and ceremony of hoisting it briskly each morning and lowering it at sunset.

' den River into the land of Canaan. As time passed it was not long until they helPln to forsake God, who had brought them out of the land of Elffpt, and bondel[e. There are many today who hive at oue time, been delivered from the bondelle of sin, and have forsaken GOd, and lone back to the world end its sinful wap. The Apostle Pater says in 2 Pater 2:20-21, "that it would had been better for them not to have known the way of dlihtouusness, then after they have known it to torn from the holy commandment delivered unto them." GOd stands pleadini fm theu who have gone astray to come back to "their first love." "Repent and pray GOd if perhaps the thought of thine heart be forgiven thee." Acts 8:22.
