Next Monday morning when the students of New Trier assemble for their chapel exercises at ten o'clock, they will see, suspended from the proscenium, a large service flag recently purchased for the school by the senior class. The flag will be presented by F. I. Walker, head of the English department, who will speak on, "Democracy versus Autocracy." The flag contains 202 stars, which represent former New Trier boys who are now engaged in helping win the war. Two gold stars in the center, are in memory of Lieutenant Philip Starr, who was recently killed in action on the French front, and Andrew Courtney Campbell, one of the "aces" of the famous Lafayette Escadrille, who met his death last fall. Parents and friends of all New Trier booys, as well as others interested in them, are cordially invited to be present at the exercises.
