LINCOLN. March TL (Ppectiil'
MiprHntondrnt Thomss believes that ev
ery school In the country and every

which surround the country and that
patriotism should be Inculcated In the
minds of the rising generation. With
that end In view he has prepared and
sent oul the following Instructions to
superintendents and tesihers:
Tho weather vane of the time, con
ttnry to nl leHtsbllshe I law, seerns to
point In two direction. We know not
uhlch direction will finally be hown
hv thl instrument; whether the V'nlted
States Is able to avoid war and aland a
an example to all nations as a country
of democracy and free Institutions and
that throuah Ha Influence the natlona
may be led Into a long period of peace,
or whether we are entering a period of
the heroic In war euch as the world hsa
never seen, should make little difference
In the method of teaching patriotism In
The times are especially propltloua for
patriotic Instruction. There never was a
time when the teaching of the English
'Innsuaae should be an thoroughly
emphasised. The Declaration of Independence-
and "America" should be
taught to every child, and every child
old enanjeh should read Kdward Everett
Hale's "Man Without a Country - and
Abraham Uncoln'a "Oettyaburg Ad
dress." The flag should be displayed
In every schoolroom or upon every
school house; its roeanlng. Its history
and that for which It stands should be
taught. The salute recommended by tha
Orarxt Army of the Republic and tha
Woman's Relief Corps is especially ap
propriate for the smaller children;
"I pledge allegiance to the flag and
the republic for which It stands; one
country; one language; one flag."
