THE MALDONIAN onic citizen painfully conscious of Emerson's Law of Compensation. It makes him know that for every crime. there is due punishment. Here, indeed, is a lesson that once learned will go far toward making a truly law-abiding citizen. Now, to say a word concerning democracy as a con- dition in the majority of schools. In them, we find rich and poor, those that are "snobbish" and those that aren't treated alike-all are required to fulfil the same requirements. Consequently, although, it is true, cliques and factions exist without the classroom, the. more wealthy- wealth is generally the dividing line-find that their family riches avail them nothing and similarly the poorer find no handicap in their poverty. Thus it is that the school builds up the democratic and law-abiding cit- izenry that is so essential for the perpetuation of the American repub- lic, itself founded on law and democracy. Mention has now been made of the knowledge and intellectual pow- er that make the school graduate able to vote intelligently and to hold office efficiently, mention has also been made of the spirit of democracy and the respect for law indirectly fostered within our schools. In con- cluding, then, a word should be said of the patriotism-the sheer love of country-that the school helps so much to instill into the plastic minds of the young. With its Memorial Day programs, holiday orations, patri- otic addresses from leading citizens, the spirit of national loyalty is en- kindled within them that can alone, when they are men and women, sus- tain the nation convulsed with economic and military disorders. This spirit enables them to be true citizens in the time of great need. In an- other respect, then, the. school shows its worth in the building of a strong, loyal, intelligent citizenry, and with this true-to revert to our opening thought-America, with all her lofty aims, should live most abundantly because her children give promise of living most abundantly, and in the life of one is the life of the other. LIFE What is Life? A dance. I enter tripping gaily, I skip, I bow, I smile, I pause and listen to the waily Music that doth beguile. The dance goes on. The music rushes, loudly stirs me, I spring, I leap, I fly, Forgot are worries, poor and petty, Oh, God, now let me die! The music stops, Is gone. Can it now all be ended? I try to bring it back, Ah, try in vain, my joy is ended, Has ceased-'tis Life I lack. -Rose Fine Page 94
