OD bless our boys whom we enshrine
As Freedom's own in each service star,
And guard them as, in battle line Or trench or camp, anear or far,
They face the foe with youthful glee And blench not ‘mid Death's revelry.
Bless Thou. O Lord, our champions of Right. Strengthen their arms to win their gallant fight. Save them, or if the sacrifice must be,
Take them, O loving Father, home to Thee!
Columbia! These are our hope and pride!
And every star's a hero’s sign.
No banner in the lines allied Will have defenders like to thine,
W ho erst with boyhoods' ardor true Cherished our own, dear Red and Blue.
(Refrain, Bless Thou, etc.)
Vincent IV. Hallinan.

On the evening of May 12, the crosses that top the fog-swept steeples of St. Ignatius' church were illuminated in
all their brilliancy and shone forth in lofty, lucent majesty, significant to San Franciscans of a most unusual ceremony in the temple below. That ceremony was the blessing of the Service Flag of St. Ignatius I niver-sity.
Long before the appointed hour, the seats of the spacious church were filled and people knelt reverently in the aisles. Magnificent and impressive, indeed, was the sight which they beheld, the green carpeting of the broad sanctuary, the im-william t sweigertaltar, tastetull decorated
with red and white carnations and blue flag lilies, the vast dome above, brightly lighted and draped on either side with two large American flags.
At half past eight a procession emerged from the sacristy, passed before the altar rail and mounted the steps to places in the sanctuary. First, in order came forty acolytes, garbed in red cassocks and delicate lace surplices: then followed a line of priests in cassock and surplice: lastly in full uniform marched two chaplains, the Reverend Father Moisant. chaplain at Camp Fremont, and Reverend Father McQuaide, chaplain at the Presidio, who was attended by two former Ignatians, Lieutenants Vincent K. Ilutler and Eugene Conway, also in uniform.
W hen all had assembled in the sanctuary a specially augmented choir sang the beautiful hymn, “C»od T»less ( ur Flag.” the production of a former St. Ignatius pupil.
