The Stars and Stripes – national emblem of the United States for 163 years, waved over San Antonio today during a Flag Day marked by a resurgence of patriotism such as spread over the nation during World War and Spanish-American War days. Feeling the need for national unity in these times when the flags of many European nations have been ground under the wheels of a gigantic war machine, thousands of San Antonians bought American flags to display during the day, depleting the flag stocks of many stores here, A. F. Dugosh, chairman of the American Flag Day Association of San Antonio contest committee, commented.
