Iowa was presented the other day, in colorful and interesting ceremonies, the flag that was flown on the new Iowa in the South Pacific, and which helped to hasten the end of the Jap war. The captain of the ship, was in Des Moines to return it to Iowa. Gov. Blue accepted the huge flag, that is now flying in the rotunda of the Capitol building, so all may see this beautiful banner. The silver service has been stored in the historical building, until such time as they may want it on board ship. People of this state were proud of the Iowa, that plowed the seas in the Spanish-American war. They likewise are proud of this new ship, which takes the place of the one that did such a swell job 37 years ago.----
