The banquet given at The
Saturday night in honor
Democratic Senators and Representatives from Louisville and Jefferson county in the last General
Assembly was one of the most enjoyable Democratic love feasts that
has been held in Louisville for
many a dav.

cheered to the echo every speech

in this country, but none ever had

serious mood the speaker paid a high

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
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.
