Page Four Director, Naiional Farm Youth Foundalion THESE UNITED STATES Most of us carry a history book conception of the United States without realizing that each day brings about a change both in our country and in our citizens‘ con- ception of it. T h e earliest conception w a s that of a union of colonies for common benefit. The thirteen col-r onies nestled along the eastern seaboard. Their problems of gov- ernment w e r e simple and their conceptions o f community life were much alike. Kyes As the country expanded andl people migrated westward, some- thing happened to them. The land got into their blood. From their point of View, people who mi- grated found the United States to be a very different place, consider- ing it as a whole, than the common view of their relatives and friends they left behind—satisfied that all that was worth while in the United States was east of the Alle- gheny mountains. To those on the seaboard a man who migrated to the Western Reserve, which to many means northern Ohio, was considered a westerner. The more daring of the Piedmont region ~ventured into the which is now Alabama. Such pio- neering built great people, molded by the land. By 1830 “The Grand Prairie" was settled. It was “way out west” in what is now western Indiana and southern Illinois. Today we know that geographically “The Grand Prairie” is just a good start toward a jaunt to the west coast of the United States. The drama of pioneering re- occurred time after time, as the wave of population and settlement slowly blanketed the land like an irresistible force pushing its way slowly but with determination from the eastern seaboard to the west coast of the United States. The pattern was always the same. One-room log huts with greased paper windows. These were ac- companied by simple clothes and simple food. Through trial and error these people adapted them- selves to the section of the country they had chosen as their home- stead. In so doing, they became a part of the land. The economic and political development that took place in this country was simply a manifestation of the people who in turn reacted directly to the nat» ural wealth and oppOrtunity found in the soil. Talk to the people in any locality from the Atlantic to the Pacific, and you will find that the product of the land on which people live, its location, influence their thinking directly and indi- rectly as well. The present situation in Europe gives a good example of the in- fluence of geography on our thinking. The New Yorker can almost see the planes coming over the horizon to bomb our great metropolis. The harbor of New York is the haven of exporters and importers who see their peacetime markets re- placed by markets for war sup- plies. The result is that they have war constantly on their minds. both in business and at home. Coal and iron ore have made the Great Lakes region the “black- smith shop“ of the nation. Pitts- burgh, Cleveland and Detroit are humming with preparations for production. The people in this dis— trict feel that invasion sounds like a remote possibility, but it’s a good idea to have plenty of guns in the house so'we can do a little shoot- ing if the invader happens to show up. The" Grand Prairie is worrying about parity prices. The great concern is the impending rise in prices of industrial goods without a sufficient rise in farm prices to keep rural America on a par. De— fense may bring economic troubles to the Grand Prairie. Each section is equally patriotic and willing to help our defense. The interesting thing. however, is the fact that each section is react- ing differently 10 our national emergency and each has a differ- ent conception of how it should be handled.

Hoskins of Bellingham (she is the former Merna Rowe of Shelton) became parents of a baby daughter weigh- ing pounds and 14 ounces in Bellingham Wednesday morning.
