Transcript WHERE hui in America can you bear true freedom sung? Freedom is as rare and precious in- day as il wa- several hundred years ago when our forefathers found their way to the shores nf ihis country searching for it. Freedom! A magic word thai means America! And America W It frci dom sought here? Between 170(1 and 1921. greal waves of immigration pounded the shores of America, bringing in forty million Europeans. .And still they wanl to come. Millions nf people everywhere would sacrifice all thev heive break all the lies thai bind for the privilege ol living in America. Whv? There have always been other places with greater natural resources, with climate as guild or heller, and with land more fertile eiml plentiful. And vii the) came with blue v islets of hope in their eve-- lei a land where ei man could stand nn his own feet; where a man could he- himself and become whatever thing his visiun and his manhood eiml his faiih could combine to make' him. They were nol looking fur freedom frnm fear. Here in lln- secret, immense, and lonely earth of America were more fear and pain and hunger eunl cold llieiu they left behind them and liny knew it. ll was nul lhe- cult nf the c mun man that brought them here. Most of them may have considered themselves common men when they came; hut they were looking fur a place where lhe ceein- niuti man had a chance lo become uncommon, where every man could. God willing, pull himself above ihe- dead level nl mediocrity implied l.v the phrase "common mein." They knew ihi- these men who searched for freedom here among lhe rocks and rills nl this land uf libel Iv. Whal is the magnetism of America which spreads abroad and tugs at the hearts of men all over the earth? Vmerica is a fabulous country, the only fabulous country: A place of miracles; a place nl exultancy and strong America is ei place ol harsh sun ilains and lhe sling of joy. on the Texas plains and snow in New England. It is et place ol mighty river- with magnificenl music in llieir names: the Monongahela, the Colorado, the Columbia, the Tennessee, the Hudson, the Kennebec, the Rappahannock, the Delaware, the Wed.ash. the Rio Grande, the Chickahominy, the Indian River, the Tombigbee, the Niagara, the Susquehanna, the Chattahoochee, the Arkansas, the Missouri, the .Mississippi, th,.

Vmerica is a place where greal boats are ha) ing al the harbor's mouth, where greal ships are pulling mil In sea. ll is a place' of the moon w hite countryside and the wailing whistle of the fasi express. ll is a place of the immense and pungent smell of breakfast; of steaming, fragrant coffee; of lonely hunters i" frosty thickets calling to lop-eared hounds. It is the place where spring brings a wild and lender beaut) to the wilderness, freshness to the barren plains, and the marvel of baseball to city parks.

America is a plena' nl bitter ugliness —and of indescribable beaut) !
