What does America mean to you? Can
you see her smiling face and hear her
happy laughter in the fieldstreams,
and woods around you? Do you think of
her as a fair nation or as an unfair
nation?’ I wonder '.vhat you really think
or if you have taken time to think at
To me America means a vast land border
ed on two sides by great oceans and on
■two sides by friendly neighbors. Ame-
^ica means to me a land ' of clieerful
busy people, building the greatest*
nation on eai’t}). In her cities hund
reds of thousands of whirling mac-iinos
carry , on various industries many of
which were begun years ago by our far
sighted forefathers. On'her” thousands .
of iafms are rcv;s and rows of fruit
trees, acres of vegatables, fields of
sxrelling grains, and hoards of fine
cattle grazing on sweet moadow grasses.
In her . mines , and in her forest men
carry on groat industries that contri
bute to America's might.
Do you realize this country bf ours
■■with all its greatness, is not. infall
ible? As Americans, many of us realize
this and are not afraid to admit ii).
Our progress, in large measure, has been
speeded up by the recognition of our
mistakes and the efforts wo make to
i iglxt them and to prevent siihil£\r ones,
Aie you dissatisfied because you have
to go to school, or are you thankful .
for your opportunity -of acquiring a
higher education? T/hcre can one find
such opportunities in the' educational
field as in America?' Vie are t.rained
to look fearlessly at both sides of a
question and to form our oxm opinions,
Wc^ are pormitt-jd to express those
opa-Tiions both orally and on the printed
page to worship cur God in any v/av lire
deem fitting—to rule our lives a'ceorti-
ing to our precepts of right and
wrong. 'Because of mass' education '
America can'judge-her citizens by merit*
even as she, by merit, has been judged
by the world-a fair and a friendly
C.an ;vDu express your feeling for America?
fimicrica to me is the America of Walt
Whitman—a singing land with singing
vuieels of industry; singing hearts of
mon, women, and children; singing pinos
and singing negroes on Southern.cotton
and ' tobacco plantations. Docs the
iiame, Arierica, mean anjrthing to yon?
To mu it has a bcautifeil sound—a
strange and vigorous sound of marching
feet of eager pioneers, a sound of.
the fHrong vrest wind, of traffic horns;
and radios, of happy children's laugh-
tor. To me, America ip "the' blessed^
"Room Enough beyond-the ocean bars.
Whore t]ic air is IDll of sunlight- and
the flag is full of stars."
