NEW CITY FLAG: City Clerk Fred J. Looker (left) and City Administrator Guy C. Larcom, jr., examine the new 3x5-foot city flag delivered to City Hall yesterday. The flag is on display in the City Council room. The flag, basically white, black and gold in color, was made up by a local firm on the basis of a design by Jean Winkelhaus, winner of a flag design contest last spring for students in the city in grades 7 through 12. A city flag originally was proposed by former Councilwoman Alicia Dwyer Pratt. Cost for the city of making the flag was $154.50, not including pole and stand.

Her 'First Banner' A Marian banner has been constructed for St. Mary's Catholic Student Chapel by artist Mrs. Virginia Irvin. "This was my first banner," says Mrs. Irvin, who is a miniaturist. Everything is made from felt and placed on a burlap backing. The gold paper Alpha-Omega symbol may be replaced by gold cloth, says Mrs. Irvin. The Latin wording is taken from an old manuscript and is a praise to the Blessed Virgin Mary. Mrs. Irvin, who is the mother of Fr. Charles E. Irvin, chaplain at St. Mary's, lives at 619 E. University. She is the widow of U-M Prof. Charles E. Irvin. She says she made the banner for St. Mary's Golden Jubilee, a celebration in connection with the chapel's 50th anniversary.
