       Relating to  an amendment  to the  Constitution of  the                 
       United States  prohibiting desecration  of the  Flag of                 
       the United States.

  specific   constitutional    amendment   prohibiting    flag                 
  desecrations and requests  several other  states to join  in                 
  this request.  He said that  31 states had already submitted

  amendment.   He said  that the American  Legion and  several
