Freedom of the press is often taken for granted in our nation. It is hard for Americans to realize that in many countries, publishers and writers are not always allowed to criticize and comment upon the way the country is run. We are so used to reading different opinions and to hearing praise or criticism of our government quoted from newspapers we do not recall that it was not always this way.
In colonial days there were few newspapers. People read them with care as they were almost the only source of news. Colonial governors realized how important the newspapers were in forming opinions. They often wished to suppress or prevent stories fro appearing. The governors did not like to be criticized but such criticism is essential to democracy.
One governor who tried to control the press was Governor Cosby in New York. John Peter Zenger published in his paper, the Weekly Journal, criticism of the Governor. Zenger was arrested. The Governor stated that Zenger was printing lies. Zenger's lawyer, Alexander Hamilton, at the trial in 1735 proved to the jury's satisfaction that Zenger was speaking and writing the truth. The spectators at the trial cheered this decision which is the basic decision establishing freedom of the press in our country.

The unbroken silence filled the vast plant that had been filled with the thunderous noises of modern machinery only a few hours ago. Time was when the giant wheels never ceased their grinding and shaping of cold metal under thousands of tons of pressure. The footsteps of trained mechanics had been muffled for years by the pounding conveyor-belt pulleys. But the mastermind of humanity had never left the plant during those busy productive years. However, now that the economy of the entire nation had slowed down, daily periods of silence filled the vast auditorium with uneasy emptiness. Occasional gusts of fresh night air eddied down the long corridors.

The unbroken silence filled the vast plant that had been filled with the thunderous noises of modern machinery only a few hours ago. Time was when the giant wheels never ceased their grinding and shaping of cold metal under thousands of tons of pressure.

The cause of the silence is

The man who boasted that he grew pumpkins so large that his wife hollowed one out and used half as a cradle, met his master. When he told his story, the other man told of two full-grown policemen in his city being found asleep on one beat. The latter added that in one of the backyards, the cornstalks were cut after harvest and sold as telephone poles.From this you can conclude that

Red tape is a term used today to refer to unusual amounts of complications filled with paper work, and procedures that seem to hinder rather than help when work must be done. The expression had its origin in England where official papers and packages of documents were ties in red tape. This cord was constantly being tied and untied. Thomas Carlyle and Charles Dickens used the phrase red tape so often in their writings that it is part of the common vocabulary of everyday people.

The Olympic Oath is repeated by all the contestants during the commencement exercises.

This oath is taken when

Money has now become so important that we often lose sight of what lies behind it. The usual way to regain our focus is to ask a question like this: "If you were without food on a desert island with no chance of rescue for a long time and had to choose between a million dollars in gold or a fifty-pound Wisconsin cheese, which would you take?" I think it is extremely necessary to see clearly and simply what lies behind the dollars. I doubt if we can solve our problems unless we see the people, the land, the machines, the houses, the freight cars, the loaves of bread which alone give dollars any meaning. In the long run it is human labor, capital investment, raw materials, mechanical energy and scientific knowledge which form the chief parts of the economic machine.
