4th of July Exercises

The Center had a unique celebration on July 4th. The large main hall was beautifully decorated with flags and red, white and blue flowers. Over the platform was a graceful and inspiring canopy of red, white and blue streamers. After the opening prayer, there was a special program of music and singing. Swami Yogananda's "Message" which he had wired from Detroit, was read to the appreciative audience. The Hon. James MacLachlan next read the immortal words of the "Declaration of Independence" of America. Mr. James Warnack of the Los Angeles "Times" followed with a short address, after which the whole audience sang "the Star-Spangled Banner."
