Patriotism In The Schools 1 In the increasing awareness that a knowledge of communism is necessary to its defeat and to tlie defense ol oui freedom is taking many forms. Some states are now requiring; courses on the subject of communism to be taught in high schools; the American Bar Association is making available a wealth of material for a text book designed, ioi use in the secondary schools; Junior Scholastic and Senior Scholastic magazines have been running a series wind, have been studied in many schools; and the American Legion, a ioneer in this field, has been doing outstanding work Our youngsters need to be taught the truth about communism. Of even greater importance, they must bc taught the truth about their oun country. For to know the story of America is to love freedom; to understand tht Constitution of this great country is to be a good citizen and stalwart defender of individual liberty. The stoiy of how America grew to greatness is one of the most amazing and fascinating tales ever recorded. Not only does it afford entertainment and adventure, but it offers real insight into the reasons why the United States is today the bulwark of liberty and the leader of the Free World. That story should be retold over and. over again. One o<f the greatest failures of our educational system in the past 15 years has been in the field of patriotic education., Not only have the schools failed to emphasize the essential elements which promote patriotism, but in many instances they have deliberately de-emphasized some of the stories of our national heroes and debunked their greatness. Little wonder, then, that our young people have become bewildered and have not known what it means to thrill at the sight of our flag or to sing with heart-felt fervor the "Stars Spangled Banner." The progress of communism in the cold war and the growing alarm among our people because of our loss of prestige in the world combined to revive an interest in nationalism and to call to mind the need for a renewal of old-fashioned patriotism. Just recently, the Charlotte i(N.C.) School Board decided to do something about the lack of patriotic education in that school system. After a discussion of the situation, all members of the board agreed that something is needed to stimulate the thinking and patriotism of school boys and girls. One member suggested special activities and programs aimed at awakening patriotism. Another thought a special course should be offered in which this was the principal aim. A third advanced the idea that teachers should integrate into all their classes as much patriotism as possible. The board appointed a committee to study the matter and to recommend to the board the hest way of fostering greater patriotism among the students. "It is very evident that something in needed to stimulate the patriotism of our youngsters and to make them proud of their country," says Dr. Elmer Garinger, Charlotte Supt. of Schools. The story of America is a great story. It has incidents of heroic achievement too numerous to mention here. It contains adventure, exciting cinflicts, dangerous exploits, daring leaders, and heart-warming stories of unselfish devotion to a cause and a nation. This story can and shou.d be one of the most thrilling and impressive stories in the entire world. Its characters rank with the greatest who ever trod the earth. We don't have to exaggerate or fabricate. We live today in a nation bought with their blood, and shaped by their deeds. Our freedom was paid for in suffering and hardships, borne by hardy men and women who were willing to endure them so that they might bring to themselves and theii* posterity the blessings of liberty. We, their posterity, have failed to appreciate fully that which they have bequeathed to us. A Prayer On Labor Day On this Labor Day, O Lord, we pray Thee to bless the work of our hands, of our minds, or our hearts. Help us to do good work. Quicken our spirits that we may do better work. We thank Thee for our nation of workers. For the right to live in a land where work is an honor as well as an obligation, where no man is bound by tradition to the same task as his father and his father's father, but where each may work at the task he can do best. We thank Thee for the right to lean*, and grow as we work. We thank Thee that we may work as free men anc women. Not at the orders of a dictator, nor where anc how the State may decree, but with the right of choice Help us to choose wisely both our work and our place o. working. We thank Thee for the privilege of work. For th strength to do our daily tasks, for the power to earn i living for ourselves . and for our families, for the oppor tunity to serve our fellow men. Let us not take this privi lege of work lightly. Wherever we serve, in high or low ly places, help us to do our best. All power and strength come from Thee. Guard u: that we may never forget that truth. Teach us to remem ber always that we must use the power and strength Tho; hast bestowed upon us'to build, not to destroy, that wi must work for others, not for ourselves alone. Keep u. courageous in our defeats and humble, in our successes. We are all of us toilers, whether it be with our hand m' our brains. Let us remember the fellowship of worker, and do unto those with whom we work and for whom w. work, as we would that they do unto us. In the name of Thy Son, the Carpenter of Nazareth, we ask this. Amen, Vol. 36 — No. 49 2 Sections—12 Pages NORTH CANTON, OHIO, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 29, 1962 10c Per Oopy A yearning for the "good old days" when man's wants were but few .and h'is labors simple; a dream of Utopia, where all needs are provided without toil of the hands and sweat of the brow—meanwhile, man keeps on working. He labors to provide the necessities of life for himself, his family, h'is neighbors. He labors to satisfy a creative urge that comes from within. He labors so thai: he may have leisure time to relax. He labors because productiveness is "good" and slothfulne.ss is "sinful." He labors for love. He la'bcrs to keep alive. 'Because the "laboring man" is a symbol of growth and progress, he has become an honored man. 'Labor Day was first celebrated in 1882 and 1884 by the Knights of Labor in New York City. Since that time, to keep alive the homage paid the laboring force and to provide a well- timed late summer holiday, Labor Day has become a legal holiday, observed the first Monday in September in both the United States and Canada. All tho.se who work—ditch diggers, technicians, professionals, housewives—have come to regard the day as theirs and grab ,a last few hours of rest and relaxation before the brisk pace of the Fall season sets in. Families take advantage of the last long weekend before school starts to complete the summer visiting schedule. Many head for the seashore or pool for a last dip before the official, season ends. Ancl, there's always a day at tlie zoo, the fair, or amusement park for other hundreds. The mere enjoyment of any or all of these would not be possible without work. Whatever the work, whoever the worker— we want to pay our debt and say "Thank you" for all that you give u,s and the world. Caught on the job (above) are just a few oi the millions to whom we are indebted (left to right): Bill Schiltz, shoe repairman; Essie Braucher, beautician; Raymond Buettler, Hoover tester on canister assembly line; Dave Kamp, City water department employe; Mabel Studer, Hoover High secretary; Robert Snider, welder on St. Paul's School construction crew.
