As-the national income,has been swelled by-defense production, however, installment buying has„ inpi, eased; rapidly—too rapidly.

Differing is Not Qisuriity Strangers"to otir snores' are often corifu&ed by the.apparent lack of unify, by the vociferous expression of differences'-of opinion,, by the heated arguments,over everything and nothing, and by what they think,must be underhocratic tendencies in pur social life77 , .■ "How can-.such, thing's happen in a democracy?" they say. "If. a democracy, makes; all men equal,--then why does everyone criticise eyeryone else?" ' ■ . !, •. . What they fail to, realize is that this variance of opinions is democracy. It is a free expression and interchange of ideas. .1 * The,difference of opinion is. not that of enniity, but rather, that of an exchange ,of view's ,in a large family, diametrically ' opposed to each other, jn their choice of- desserts or movie > stars, but basically in harmony when, anything of importance comes up; and ready to'act as, a family once there is a.decision made that affects the good of anjYpi- jdl. 77 The points of difference in America are far.less important than ,the points of agreement.,(We may seem to devote more time to them and to grpw more articulate-over them, but as a people we speak mojre .of non-essentials than,!of those irioi'e, serious things to ---vhichwe. give allegiance.

It should be remembered that the' people who settled this country ail wanted one thingY-ffeedpm ,to live "fheir o*v*f*n. lives and to gain for themselves and their descendants a bet-J ter life than they had known. One thing that has kept Amer7 ica growing rather than static lias been that for every man there has been, the hpRP that, h4§ children would go farther arid fare better than he had, both economically and socially. Our greatest unifying, force is the ideal of religious, social, political and economic-opportunity which in the last^analysis motivates the majority.of ourrcitizens. " ' Because .we .hay.e this inheritance of freedom, we can be intelligently ,a united nation—riot in slavish obedience to orders, but because in tipies. of emergency we choose to act as one people, never abdicating our rights to differ or "to express that difference., ,-We are one^ because we ai'e free to know the truth and tp..speak it.
