cities have followed suit, and in March,
1955, President Eisenhower signed a bill
which had been passed by House and Senate proclaiming May 1st Loyalty Day and a
Mrs. Grande has written ns outlining the
activities of Park Ridge, now known as "the
City of Flags," in celebrating this patriotic
occasion. Park Ridge DOW has 197 street
Hags — the Junior Chamber ot Commerce
lias sponsored the sale of three thousand
home flags, turning proceeds over to the
Retarded Children's I Ionic — five thousand
lapel flags were procured and distributed to

newspapers have given the fullest publicity.
This year Park Ridge's Loyalty Day ceremonies will center around a flag-burning
ceremony depicting the proper method for
retirement of tired and tattered American
Bags, The program is being planned to include fullest participation of school children
since, asks Mrs. Grande, "who ever heard of
a youngster (or adult) being delinquent, or
turning to anything anti-American or unconstitutional if he feels a depth of patriotic

Park Ridge, the City of Flags, as well as to
the Other patriots whose unceasing efforts
