Strong, B. Bruen Not Shown: E. McAllister, P. Fox One cold frosty morning in the year 1840, several boys waited furtively, but gleefully, in a country store opposite the schoolhouse. They were waiting for the bell to ring, but nine o'clock came, and no bellg nine-thirty and then ten, - still no bell. These boys, the night before, had palntaklngly climbed to the belfry, turned the bell over and filled it with water, knowing that by morning it would be frozen and no bell could summon them to class. Inside the schoolhouse was one large room with a long, low stove near the center for heat and desks were built along the walls. The teacher.was en- throned upon a platform where his all-seeing eye could detect the playful or the loiterer, and with a birch ruler bring him back to the pursuit of knowledge. Even with all that has been said and written about these early schools, they were a definite step forward in free, public education. It was left for America to provide universal education, Education was needed for everyone if people were to understand the principles and problems of American Democracy. Standards have been rapidly advanced for teacher tralningg men and women are entering the profession today to pursue it as their life work. America Marches On! - and with it, Education goes hand in hand.

Trees, flowers and birds Democracy I see. For everywhere I look about, UNCLE SAM AND I United States of America I Peace hath our God given, It means so much to me: America he has blestg Now, my fellow-citizens, We must do the rest. We, who are the youth, TBI AYOGAN Even seem to know That our love for America Will never cease to grow. Can overcome the wrong If daily we set out to bear All our burdens with a song. You are our life, America, We'll love you till we dieg And we'll always be filled with pride 'When Old Glory passes by. Look about you, Americans, See your blessings hereg Look again, Americans, What have we to fear? Ellen Collins WHAT UNCLE SAM MEANS TO ME A century and a half ago a new government was ordained in America founded on something almost new to Europeans - Liberty. In the years that have followed, the United States of America has become a design for equality and justice, leading nations-and peoples to liberalism all over the world. Today this takes on new significance. With oppression and suffering being felt all about her, America becomes a sanctuary of these principles, not only to others who, in peril and distress, look to her for aid and relief, but also to Americans in whom are awakened a new devotion and greater zeal for making them secure. Uncle Sam guarantees us Liberty with happiness and security and provides equal opportunities for all his people. An American's life and possessions are his own, to be used for whatever he desires: he is called upon for his services and contributions only when the safety and integrity of the country is at stake. Ours is the right to worship God in the church of our choice, subject only to the dictates of our own conscience. The decisions of life are left with us. We are free to frame and carry out our own ideas, to criticize the government, and to suggest improvements. We are endowed with the right to express our views peacefully to others. But, this is only the beginning of the kindness of Uncle Sam. These personal liberties and many more are guaranteed to all citizens alike, to the merchant or the farmer, the minister or the office holder, the industrial worker or the business magnate. The franchise is granted to all citizens who are capable and deserving of a voice in governmental affairs. The great fortunes and opportunities of this vast land of almost unlimited resources are free and open to all who will only invite opportunity to their doors. As a student, I know the boundless possibilities offered in schools to every American boy or girl who is eager to prepare his life for a useful future. Probably the most precious endowment which Uncle Sam can offer is the felicity which we enjoy. In this traditional land of peace and comparative security, we are fairly safe from repeated and disastrous hostility and strife between nations which so often shatters the tranquility of human existence. In this country, states, of a size to be considered nations elsewhere, are joined in mutual friendship and diffidence, all deriving their authority from the central government. Here, peoples of scores of nationalities, religions, races and creeds, are united with one ultimate goal - to form a perfect democracy. Here we can pass our lives in happiness, comparative peace and reasonable abundance. Let us, as Americans, rally ardently to the defense of our beloved WLand of the free and home of the brave,W for in the realm of Uncle Sam, Compassion and the Golden Rule prevail rather than Oppression and Iron Rule.
