Nor is it necessary to clear thd land to*plant our crops, that we may eat; nor a well, that we may quench our thirst. Yet, we are pioneers—of a new way of living* We are**tfte Sculptors handling the soft, yielding cJay of a new com munity. What form shall we mold o(it of itt ‘ \ : ' / This project' has given most Of. us an opportunity we'd never anticipated; We are in*the process of creating homes i.

Let us make good Taws--wiSe lawk , and not too many of them. Let \is keep ourselvesour community, : our city ’ government,' our ideals, as clean as our own, new, windswept roofs. Let us cbn duc.t ourselves and the. management of our Greenbelt in such away as to deserve the pride with which all America will be looking on.
