Quotes Skelton's breakdown of Pledge of Allegiance • . • ' c DAV remains neutral in local controversy The Henry J. Curtis Chapter 161, DAV, has announced that it will remain neutral on the con- troversy created by the refusal of local organizations to support the Purple Toad. The groups have stated that they will not support the youth center while James Flounders is coordinator. Their disapproval apparently $jems from the the fact that* Mr. Flounders refused to salute the American flag at a meeting of the Rotary Club where he was guest speaker. Also submitted with the an- nouncement of the DAV's neutrality was a copy of the Pledge of Alegiance as explained by Red Skelton on his Jan. 14, 1969 show. Following is the statement 'given by the DAV: ** \During the recent rights and wrongs on saluting the American flag that have been happening in v our community DAV iDisabled American Veterans) has stood back, not wishing to get involved in something members feel is a * personal conflict between two grown men. , . •*> * \We would like these two in- dividuals to read the following excerpt taken from the Jan 14, 1969 Red Skelton Show in hopes that this will help disolve the differences these men may have between them \ ate approves medical course >t Canton ATC Canton ATC has received approval from the State Department of Health for its fourth ^6-Hour-Medical Emergency Technician Course to be offered . in Continuing Education starting March 9 The Department of Health, under a Highway Safety Project Grant, -defrays in part the faculty costs in the course. , Any interested person holding a .Red Cross Advanced First Aid Card or who is currently in an Advanced Course is eligible to 1 enroll.

To me, he was the greatest teacher, a real sage of my time He had such wisdom. We were all reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, and he walked over Mr Lauwell was his name ... He said. \I've been listening to you boys and girls recite the Pledge of Allegiance all semester and it seems as though it is becoming monotonous to you. If 1 may, may I recite it and try to explain to you the meaning of eacb word: I—ME, an individual, a committee of one. v 'Pledge—dedicate all of my worldly goods to give without self-pity Allegiance—my love and my devotion. , To the Flag—our standard. Old Glory, a symbol of freedom Wherever • she waves, there is respect because your loyalty has given her a dignity that shouts freedom is everybody's job. .

For all—which means \it's as much yoUY country as it is mine.\ Since 1 was a small boy. two states have been added to our country and two words have been added to the Pledge of Allegiance—\under God \ ' Wouldn't it be a pity if .someone said, \That's a prayer\ and that would be eliminated from schools,*\too? * .
