Boy Scout Troop 51 decorated the business district of Woodbine, Iowa, with American flags for Labor Day in 1961. With help from the Woodbine Civic Club and Elwin Vest, owner of a nursing home, the Scouts mounted 78 new 50-star flags. Freddie Corwin, 13, propped up by Danny Jackson, 12, and Lynn Purcell, 13, puts the final flag in place. Kathy Bussey and Diane Shipman, both of Council Bluffs, look on. THE WORLD-HERALD
