Transcript Freedinas Fimndatitm rd-Wl JOE FOUND A WAY by Emma Stark For the second consecutive year, Emma stink has received The George Washington Honor Medal in the i May competition sponsored by Freedoms Foundation, Valley Forge, Pennsylvania. Last September FACTS FORUM NKWS reprinted Emma's 1958 award-winning essay, "I Speak for Our ('.instil ui lonal Republic," which outlined the principles upon which .um- American republic was founded. Emma is the daughter "f Mr. and Mrs, Loren I). Stark, 2320 Danville, Houston S, Texas. Thk Koi k walls of the judo's chambers were paneled in deep nil mahogany. The -oil indirect light and ihr cool, clean air circulating in iln- room created an atmosphere of peaceful dignity. In spite of these pleasanl surroundings, Joe Boshervick felt lhe old familiar tug in his throal as his eyes drifted over lln- windowless wall-. Whv did a closed room ['iii him in ihis sudden, quid panic? (Hi. you remember, Joe, come on. now think. Yes, I remember, Joe thought. I was only trying i«> forget. Is there any crime in trying to forgel forget the ugl) past? It was s«> horrible. Monstrous tyrants, created !i\ Hi-' people themselves, grabbed and clawed ai mj native land until they had robbed my people of all self-respect and pride. > es, thoughl Joe sadly, it was our own fault. We were afraid of responsibility and sn we gave to the governmenl those duties which we could and should have done for ourselves. The lazy were eager for prideless handouts; the sturdy worker wanted iob security; the housewife demanded stable prices. Everyone traded Iii- individual freedom for whal appeared to In- ii presenl good. Farmers accepted price supports a complicated thing called "parity*' which turned oul to be a centralized control of everything he did, such as the crops he could plant and thc price Ik* had I" pa> for everything he bought. Small businessmen Bought governmental protection from big businessmen and Imtli gol bureaucratic planning "I their business. Schools ami colleges asked for governmental grants of fiimIs and received federal runt ml. including governmenl textbooks and the subjects to I"' taught. Industries sought subsidies ami gol governmenl ownership "I their plants. Individuals ac- >i out cepted governmental security for health, old age, and unemploy ment and found themselves shackled slaves to a monstrous tyrant of their own making. The church had catered to the social and economic needs ol itv members while tin* spirit nal life had withered and died. Before I was born the church as a spiritual force had ceased to be, bul Had told me all aboul Jesus. \ group of friends used to gather in the basemen! ol whal once was a church bul now was a pile of stone and broken stained glass. Our belief in Christ was the only thing that helped our family survive as long as it did. 1 wonder u In ( -nil -pared me? "My good man. what can I do for you?" The judge's lender yel firm \nir<* broke Joe's nightmarish thoughts, and he was "lad. Joe was once more hack in the paneled room u'th the judge. He looked at the judge whose eyes seemed to say, '"Don'l be afraid, you are in America now."" Thev uen' friendly, hut knowing yes, knowing eyes. Joe thoughl o* his own grave limitations shorl of stature, ill-fitting clothes, and foreign horn hui he was determined to do his best. "Sir." Joe finally Bpoke, "I have come to lake my oath l°t" naturalization. "Oh, yes," said the judge as he picked up a paper from 'ds desk. "1 assume you have followed the rule- the years °f residence . .. ?" ' ^ es ... hui . . ." Joe hesitated. "Something's on your mind, Mr- Boshervick. Whal is it?" "Sir. I came tu America because in my countr) the people bad losl their freedom. During the time I have been in America I have noticed thai the symptoms which have preceded the downfall of every greal nation are also present in *he I nited State-.
