Nov. 9, 1967 – FLAG ETIQUETTE

When the Flag passes in a parade or review, all spectators should face the Flag, stand at attention and salute the Flag as it passes. Those in uniform should render the military salute.

Men and boys not in uniform should remove the head covering with the right hand, holding it at the left shoulder, with the right hand over the heart. Males without head covering will salute in the same manner, hand over heart. Women not in uniform will salute by placing the right hand over the heart. The Flag salute in a moving column should at all times be rendered at the moment the Flag passes EACH TIME the Flag passes.

Nov. 9, 1917 – BONE FOUND

A bone about 16 inches long was picked up late this afternoon a short distance to the rear of the ruins of the Palace hotel, which is thought may be that of John Maloney, believed to have perished in the burning of the hotel. It was found by one of the workmen searching the ruins, and lay in some small weeds in the cowyard about 100 feet east of the ruins. The bone showed signs of having been burned and appeared to have been knawed by a dog, and the conclusion is that the bone was found at another place and by a dog carried to where it was found. Dr. McKinnon, who examined the find, expresses the belief that it is a human bone, though he is not positive.

WAR’S STUPENDOUS FIGURES

These are days of stupendous figures when we contemplate the war. If the bodies of the men slain in the great war were buried in a trench of continued length, such a trench would extend from New York to San Francisco and back again.
