It is a ..uild wide custom when a
national air is sung or played the
all stand while the music is being
rendered. "America" is a national
air. "The Star Spangled Banner"
by Francis Scott Key, while has nev

ional hymn, it is practically consider
ed such, and used in the army and
navy. All should stand whenever
these songs are played or sung.
If any person displayed any dis
courtesy to those who spoke from
the auto the other day, we are sorry
for it. If you are a Cedar Creek
citizen, or of the neighborhood there
of, boost your town and community
by showing every court esy to strang

thoughtlessness is giving a wrong
impression for our town and ccm
