fense interference, elimination of

Coach Kline stressed the import-
ance of ians staying off the play

“YOU SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH AND
THE TRUTH SHALL MAKE YOU FREE’
I am the voice of the city, the bringer of tidings, the companion of your fire-
side hours. I am your friend away from home. I am the prophet of tomor-
row, your link with the world beyond your doorstep. I am today’s link with
history. But most of all, I.am the Conscience of America. And I must be
I fired the Spirit of another America when 1 told of lands beyond the frontier.
I set ten thousand covered wagons on their sunset Odyssey. I tore the veil
from men’s eyes and bade them see that their country could not exist half
slave and half free.
I have never become “an instrument of government policy.” I have never—
as in Russia—been used to blackout the truth. No hidden power has used
me, as in Germany, to stifle the kindlier instincts of a whole people, rouse
barbaric passions and set feet tramping the long red road. No secret voices
made me keep silent, as in France, while a trusting nation died.
I am not infallible. 1 have your weaknesses for 1 am of you and by you, but
I al§o have your steadfast strength. Sometimes I have slumbered, compla-*
cent, and then wrongs were done. But 1 have always awakened. 1 am the
Conscience of America—-your conscience—and 1 will be heard.
I bid you have faith in America. 1 tell you Democracy is not on trial. It is
not outmoded, worn out, finished. It is still the newest thing on earth; too
new even to be fully understood. All else is a throw-back to medievalism,
cynicism, despondency and despair.
1 bid you read the Declaration of Independence. I tell you to read the Con-
stitution of The United States and Lincoln’s words at Gettysburg.
1 tell you the Republic is not on trial. It is rather we who are on trial. It is
our faith, our courage that is being put to the test and will be put to the test
in the years to come. Perhaps, caught in the mesh of social and economic
change, we shall give ear to the honeyed voices of the demagogues. Perhaps,
softened by ease, corrupted by paternalism, we shall forget truth, tolerance,
kindliness, initiative. Maybe we shall forget that while the burden of re-
sponsibility always rests heavy on the shoulders of them willing to bear it,
that very willingness makes those shoulders stronger. Perhaps we shall der
cide that Democracy is not for us, that we are not ready for it.
I don’t think so. For I am America’s Conscience and 1 have faith in Amer-
ica’s destiny. I know that as long as I am free to speak, America will listen.
I must not be silenced, for when you silence me you silence your own heart.
1 must not be enslaved, for when you enslave me you are alone, cut off from
reality, abandoned by truth, at the bottom of a black pit of horror and fan-
tasy. Gag me and your children will never know the America you have
known. Keep me free and you will be free.
I look insignificant enough on your doorstep, yet I am your link of under-
standing with a changing world. I am a passing, ephemeral thing, born and
dying every day. Yet I am one of the foundations of the Republic. 1 am the
Conscience of America. I am beholden to no one. I tell you the truth. And
you trust me.
I am the free press of America. I am your newspaper.
