which quoted one of the techni

Another paragraph, of interest

is this: “Chicago newspapers,

WONDERFUL, QUIET JUNE
Enveloped by a mood impassioned with the quietude
of a slumbering woods and becalmed by the drowsi
ness of the warmth of June, Samuel T. Coleridge was
moved to write—
“A noise like a hidden brook,
III the leafy month of June
That to the sleeping woods at night
Singeth a quiet tune.’
Coleridge's thoughts of peaceful June are immersed
in a 20th Century sea of cataclysmic speed and care
lessness that would have challenged the imagination
of any 18th Century pen.
Yes, the woods may still sing of a brook in June—
but today we speak of man-made brooks that flow
through woods; concrete brooks—flowing not of water,
but of millions of unnatural devices called automobiles.
For this is the time that travel soothes the searching
The softness of a nation’s green pastures will be
pierced; trees, rich with life, will quiver with fear
and the highway will hum to the tune of roaring ve
hicles on vacation-bound jaunts.
This is the beginning of the glorious vacation period
when families will pack limb and belongings to seek
a few fleeting moments away from Life’s more tedious
It will be a wonderful June and a quiet June. It
will be a wonderful June for those who drive with
care, and an unusually quiet for those '*2420 unfor
tunate being* who will die in unnecessary accidents.
