Dixie Flag Flies Over Yankeeland

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Yesterday was General Robert E. Lee's birthday anniversary and ten Staunch southerners from Kirkland House didn't let it pass unnoticed.

The group from below the Mason-Dixon Line hung a Confederate flag from the A-42 window of Louis B. Du Pree '50, who hails from Greenville, North Carolina. According to Du Pree, the flag was almost unnoticed, for it is similar to the Deacon's House emblem.

The flag contains 13 stars on a red field and is also something like the British Union Jack.

"Several Yankee spectators" watched the ceremonies, said Du Pree, who said, "I would rather be in the sunshine" although he finds the snow "not too bad. I'm used to it by now."
