Members are reminded of the purpose and order of the United Daughters of the Confederacy, quoting from the Handbook of the UDC. The object of the UDC shall be historical, educational, benevolent, memorial and patriotic, to honor the memory of those who served and those who fell in the service of the states; to protect, preserve, and mark the places made historic by Confederate valor, to collect and preserve the material for a truthful history of the War Between the States.

CORRECTION In the outlines carried under the picture related to the presentation of an American Flag which had flown over the U.S. Capitol in Washington to 'Master Ian Rutherford Cross, the names of his parents ere incorrectly listed as Mr. and Mrs. Robert Cross instead of Mr. and Mrs. Michael Cross of Shepherdstown. Also in the cutlines,, it was inadvertently stated that Ina's grandfather, the late Thomas R. Moore, Jr., was killed two years ago. Ac- tually, he was killed in an of- fensive drive in Hercun Forrest in Belvium in 1944, and Ian's mother, Mrs. Michael Cross was just two years old at the time. We regret these two mistakes.
