Africa and the South Seas. looking for Americans who had left Die United Slates and were doing significant and interesting things abroad. Now I , , deal about at least 3000 American men and women— the lop ones— in every land except South America, Australia and New Zealand. 1 found out why good and talented Americans leave America, the land of the free, in which nearly every foreigner in the world longs to live. It is because Americans are (he only people who possess (lint cliaritsble urge thai makes them «'an( (o help (he unfortunate.

Since tliose people arc in foreign lands, they go abroad. in China, in Africa. Only There . hundreds of Ameri- cans, of course, who live abroad because they have a- little money and it is cheaper to live (here. There are thousands of business men, mostly in the foreign branches of American firms and in their mines and oil fields. MJEN OF MEDICINE •rOTJR THE WORLD Americans' we should be pioud \Uiose counterpaits ' foii'fni "Sniong Ihe peoples of jib ' Americans were doing Ihese tough, unselfish jobs. People of oilier , nations think of themselves fusl, and usually all the time. U. S. BECOMES IVEST I.OVED LAND There were times on mv trip when I thought "We are just a lot of suckers. Nobody else gives money and the services of competent, upstanding people to nnfor- lunalc foreigners. "You ilon't see.Ihe British nnd French sending doctors lo help our poor in Puerto Rico or- the Philippines. Why should we send doclors lo India and Syria?" 1 got over that. If you want lo be practical—the influence of these Americans abroad and the contributions from those at home have made America Hie nalion most admired and beloved by the common people of the world—not by (he rulers, who envy us, but by their .subjects. * Perhaps we don't get. all our money back, but we receive a lot of it—in trade. Because they like us, foreigners like American goods. There is no saies resistance for American motor cars, toothpaste, tobacco, gasoline, silk hosiery and a hundred other commodities. GOOD WILL MEANS GOOD BUSINESS Good will is worth a great deal in. biisiriess—and in International affairs.? - - ' • • -JX_tl)e people ndmirc"us, their lulers arc more likely to give us a better break on trade agreements nnd in diplomatic parleys. It's "mighty good for America "to be loved in most parts of the world. Beyond that, you couldn't stop these Americans, if you wanted to. They would struggle nnd slnrrp and go ragged In order to help unfortunates. In the second place, most of us don't want, to stop helping. When wc.gnze In Ihe mirror we like om 1 looks belter If we hnve helped Ihe Chinese or the Finns or the Ar- menlnns. That's the way we're built. And that trait helps make us a ijrent nation. If we ever stop worrying about Ihe world's unfortunate people. It we begin lo Incline toward a policy of shooting them instead of feeding them, look out! No longer will we be unique. No longer will we be Americans. . In that case no longer will life lie worth living!
