FLAG EXERCISES AT
THE LIBERTY YARDS
The recently proposed flag raising
exercises at the yards of tte Liberty

held tomorrow at noon when two
flags the Stars and Stripes and the

be raised. Addresses will be -made
by Mayor Parker Quince Moore and
by C. C. Chadbourn, chairman of the
shipping committee of the chamber
of commerce, and secretary-treasurer

ter, said they had no desire to keep
the public away, but that a big crowd

ward confusion and that this Is one of
the things that they are seeking to
escape. The-flags will be raised at
noon, the men being permitted to
cease work a few minutes prior to
this time,. '
