WELCOME: BACK / Do You Jaywalk? ! While m£ny towns do not have ordinances about cutting across the street against the lights, you should know that if you get hit by a truck or car when you are going contrary to traffic, your widow or family won't collect. Maybe you don't take chances. May be you are careful. Maybe you are deeply concerned with traffic fatalities and .safety regulations. *•* But are.you sure you don't jaywalk other ways ? JL^g .you follow the red and green lights, of common prac- tice?lDd=you obey the traffic rules of procedure which enable the regular-conduct of daiiy affairs? Or do you jaywalk? "Do "you attempt to take short cuts, to cut corners? When you get in a jam, do you shriek for pressure to be put on to aid1 you, or do you figure out what the truth of the matter is arid fight your case en its own merits ? Do you determine what you do for others by "what they can eventually do for you? Do you condition your actions by studying facts or swapping favors? When you get "no" for an answer, do you assume venality in those with whom you deal ? Do you take the attitude that- if you "bought them off", you would get what you want ? Careful, brother—because that assumption doesn't speak well of your own integrity. Do you ask for special privileges? Do you want things for yourself or- your group ahead of others, ot without regard to the good of all people ? - Most of the wars of history have been caused by jaywalking nations. Most of the disturbances that haye endangered the internal health of our nation have been due to ■jaywalking groups/ fa We have seen too often what the jaywalker-<can: do iir communities^ in our clubs^in our unions, indeed in every strata of cur society. We find a jaywalker'^on our streets. Eet jis stop jaywalkers .right down the line. Traffic rules— Whether vehicular or personal—are made for the protection of all and should be obeyed by all. - Wait for the green/light—and don't be a jaywalker! Our Responsibility i "There is a river in Macedon, and there is also moreover a river at Monmouth— ' and there is salmons in both." When Will, the country boy who went to the city- to .write plays, penned that line, hei probably was thinking with nostalgia of the days when whether thi fish were.biting was more important to him, than a wealthy sponsor coming to, watch his actors strut the boards. But he could not have stated more.clearly one of the important truths upon which the fate of the world hangs today. Too often in every phase of life we think only of Monmouth and forget Macedon. We see only our own side of the picture. And we resent the other fellow seeing, just his.- We have made this mistake in our own national life— witness the turmoil born of the selfish desire of special groups.for special priviliges for. themselves. ^loi^e; we have made this mistake in our;own world—witness the mess into tipich our overlooking of.our brothers problems«has led us, with wars and rumors of war everywhere. " '-• ■< No longer are calm judgement, a sense of perspective,, clear thinking, tolerance: of the other fellow's;" viewpoint", merely.the characteristics1 that mark the man who has reaped in self-discipline and in self-containment the "rewards of education. They have become a matter of life and death. ■ We cannot—and we must not—shirk our responsibility. We can no longer say: "This I want forme and. mine." We can no longer consider, only the people who live by the river at Monmouth,-and ignore !the.fate of. those who Jive by the river-Macedon. • s - , Ideals are the only real security. It Was the ide^l back of this, nation-of purs that enabled it to weather assaults from without and dissensipn from "within. It is."only precognition and a, sincere attempt at the realization of th'ese ideals'that can make, it, win through in thetryjng. days ahead. - v , There is ho longer time. for. indulgence, in selfishness and in self-interest. We musjb close ranks "and rejnember not merely our rights as free men, but our-personal" responsibili-,' ties toward our felldw men everywhere.
