WHAT IS TRUE AMERICANISM?
Wc should keep steadily before our
minds the fact that Americanism is a
question of principle, of purpose, of
idealism, of character; that it is not
a matter of birthplace, or creed, or
lino of descent.
Here in this country the represen
tatives of many old-world races arc
being fused together into a new type,
n tjpc the main features of which
arc already determined, and were de
termined at the time of the revolu
tionary war; for the crucible in
which 'all the new types are melted
into one was shaped from 177G to
1789, and our nationality was defi
nitely fixed in all its essentials by
the men of Washington's day.
The strains will not continue to
exist separately in this country as
in the old world.
They will be combined in one; and
of this new type those men will best
lepiesent what is loftiest in the na
tion's past, what is finest in her hope
for the future, who stand each solely
on his worth as a man; who scorn to'to legitimate Interior and thoso who
ua cvu to otners, ana who reiuse to
submit to wronijdoinp; themselves;
tylto have in them no taint of weak
ness; who never fear to fight when
fighting is demanded by a sound and
hfgh morality, but who hope by their
lfyes to brine; ever nearer the day
tvJicn justice and peace shall prevail
within our own borders and in our
relations with all foreign Powers.

makes up, and the lessons that it
teaches to the generations that come
