   DUVALL - Thanks to the cooperative efforts of city officials, Chamber of Commerce members, American Legion Post 199 and a local Boy Scout troop, the city was presented last week with 30 United States flags that will be flown at local businesses during all major holidays.
   American Legion Post 199 in Carnation donated the flags after Legion treasurer Bill Losleben made the request on behalf of the city and the Chamber.
   A representative 3X5' flag was held by Senior Patrol Leader Andy Lowthian of Scout Troop 745 during the presentation at last week's council meeting. The 14 members of Troop 745, sponsored by the Duvall Church, have agreed to care for the flags when they are not being displayed.
   "These will be on view throughout town," said Chamber of Commerce President Joan Ramsey. "Boy Scout Troop 745 has agreed to set them up in town for each holiday, and then take them down and store them properly afterwards. The American Legion and the Boy Scouts put this together to show that Duvall is proud of our United States flag."
