MAIN STREET AMERICA
The old cowhand sat in his little
cabin not far from Main Street with
his few belongings packed neatly
for travel . . . He looked about him
in a dazed sort of way. "Hit don’t
seem right at my age to be a-pullin'
up my roots." . . . The friend who
had come for him. and whose car
stood waiting outside, tried clum
sily to cheer the old man. "You’ll
he a lot more comfortable with your
folks —and there are lots of inter
esting things to see in the city.” . . .
The old cowhand shook his head. “I
ain’t interested in no city sights,
an’ them grandchildren o’ mine
don’t* really want me. There ain’t
nobody left but them an’ me—an’
I’ve got to the place where I can’t
do for myself no more. . . . Seems
sort o' strange when a feller lives
ail his life, a-workln’ in a land o’
plenty an’ a world of verdure, that
there ain’t no security at the end of
the road.” . . . His friend was silent
and the old man went on talking,
as if to himself. . . . " ’Corse there’s
a few of ’em. like Morgan an’ Ford
an’ Rockefeller, that gets along al
right. but there’s a heck of a lot
more of ’em that don’t. .. . Seems
like. In all the thousands o’ years
men’s been a-livln.* they’d a-flg
gered out somethin’ about it. . . .

to me. if it can’t produce well-being
for its creatures, same as nature
does for hers." . . . The sun shone
In at the open doorway and fell In
a shaft of gold across the floor
boards, a mesquite tree stood sen
tinal at the door, beyong which the
desert stretched to the great pur

said the old man. ... He rose slow

One of the high school’s
champion athletes, who lives
near Main Street, was a victim
of influenza during the recent
epidemic. . . . The doctor look

as he read the boy’a tempera

Doc?" the patient Inquired. . . .
“A hundred and two," replied
the doctor. . . . For a moment
the boy was silent. “Say,” he
asked with sudden interest;
“what's the world’s record?"

Seen in a Main Street drug store
recently, where the soda fountain
was lined with the usual Saturday
crowd Mexicans. Indians, farm
workers and a few town’s people.

a young colored man. the theater
ribbons and empaign stars on his
uniform attesting to overseas serv

hung back as he approached th»*

onto a vacant stool. . . . One of the
young women behind the counter
glanced swiftly in his direction. . .
he did not wait for her to approach.
. . . Rising, as if at a command, he

tone and they left the drugstore.
. . . This is a far cry from the ex
perience of one of his race. Booker
T. Washington, who was received
at Windsor Palace by Queen Vic
toria of England, and was later her
guest at tea! . . . Between these
two extremes there is a middle
path upon which men might walk
with reasonable safety toward the
solution, in time, of one of our vital
post war problems.
