Transcript We Thank ThecF THE OPPORTUNITY THAT IS AMERICA By HARRY II. SCHLACHT Editor, East Side Ants. \. Y. Wa \t is this old ideology of Marxism? It is the old doctrine ol authoritarianism. It is tin- ancienl curse oi the strong to rule the weak. Il is the power of force—with guns and marching feet. Herbert1 Hoover once said: At lhe time our ancestors were proclaiming that the Creator had endowed all mankind with tin- rights ol Freedom a-* a child of God with a free will, there was being proclaimed Ky urn- Karl Marx, a satanic philosopher ol agnosticism, thai the rights ol man came from the state. Tlir greatness ol America comes from the one philosophy. Thr other philosophy comes from iln- despair of Europe. Our idea of democracy was embodied in the preamble of our Declaration of Independence and in the words of our < Constitution. It has as its philosophers Samuel \dams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Tom Paine, and Abraham Lincoln. We are tlie firsl lo presenl to the modern world a political faith based upon the dignity of the individual. We are the firsl to presenl to the modern world the equality and fraternity ol mankind. "I CAN" TYPICALLY AMERICAN Every American has before him the inspiration, the gratification, the challenge to say "I can" as he take- part in the life of our blessed land. Lei me tell vou a story that has come to me from I brie M. Gwynn, Jr., of the North Dakota Junior Chamber of Commerce. Ii is a -lory thai has it- inception in the northern province of Czechoslovakia. It concern- two brothers—two small boys. The youngsters were sprawled on the banks nf tin- Elbe River. The afternoon was not unlike many others, fur often they sat by the river ami talked, sometimes until sundown. Pace 32 "I'm going lo be rich when I grow up," Karel would vow. "I'll own much land and everyone will point to me and say, 'there is Karel Mahousek. He is the richest man in all Czechoslovakia.'" Bul brother Jan had dreams too dreams that tie dare nol tell Karel because he would surely think them strange. He jusl sal there am! looked "nt into the horizon. Somewhere beyond the Elbe there was an ocean and beyond that? Well, one da> he would know. Old Eduard Mahousek considered Iii- sou and what the future held for them. He even prophesied it many times. "Jan i- a dreamer. He i- nth' with imagination, 1 mt he is nol as ambitious as Karel." lt happened that Jan was at a village -lurk when a river boat stopped for cargo. Perhaps it was fate when, on an impulse, he took a job on the boa! and found hi- waj to the sea to a different way of life—for Jan came to Vmerica. It wasn't easy at first, this new world. Jan used t" write home about the strange Vmerican way-. Yel there was always something wonderful to tell. He was making progress. He had a good iob, with good pay. \- for Karel. his letter- were different. He couldn't save the money with which to buy the land he had promised himseli he would one day own. What doc- the Story of these two brothers mean? Why are their lives so different today? The answer is simple, for one is a symbol of America, and the other a -\ tui'ol of Europe. We are the sainc people, with the same Mood, with the same native ability. Bul there is one essential difference. Here in America we have the opportunity. Here in America we have the privilege to use to the fullest extent our native talent. Here in America we are free all of ii- to express ourselves and to use and develop our laienl and ability. The ureal power that we have in America was gained and grew because of work. It achieved ihis greatness because men bent to the task to accomplish an end.
