Appropriate GRAND MASTER Liberty Council, No. 37, Junior Order United American Mechanics, of Louisville, will present a Bible aiid flag to the public school at Breckenridge Station, on the Jeffer sontown interurban electric line Sunday afternoon, May 8th. Exercises will commence at about 3:15 p. m., and although the program is not quite complete as yet, the children of the Breckenridge school will take part and several excellent addresses made, so we feel safe in predicting a good program. Mr. James H. Hambrick, of Louisville, Past State Councilor of the organization, will explain the object of the Junior Order United American Mechanics and why they present the Bible and flag to the various schools throughout the land. The Jr. O. U. A. M. numbers about three thousand members in Jefferson county, Louisville claiming a large majority of them, and there are over 15,000 members in Kentucky and upward of 300,000 in the United States, and it is the largest purely American organization in the world. The Junior O. U. A.M. is a patriotic beneficial orand ganization and believes that the Holy Bible should be read in every class-roothroughout the land, not to teach sectarianism, but moral excellence, and that the American Flag should float over every school house, during sessions thereof, that the little children may learn it to be a beacon light in every storm that might threaten our destruction. The order believes in compulsory education and that the schools should be conducted in the Englishlanguage to the end that the future generations may take their places as English speaking citizens of an English speaking race and that foreign languages should be taught only as incidental to a liberal education. n, m G.
