He pointed to Columbus' courage in I setting forth on unknown seas after having had the courage to seek funds for the journey after numerous disappointments and cited the courage of the pioneer settlers of our country In the settlement of various sections of the land. Courage In demanding self-government at the cost o£ war Rt the time of the revolution was also pointed out as was the courage necessary at the present day In order to solve the problems such as unemployment, peace, the machine age, disarmament and others. Irene Wheeler in her treatment of the topic, "America Moves On Through Courage," gave a summary of present-day conditions in order to show how necessary unselfishness is needed at this crisis In the nation's history in order that we may continue to move on to higher things.
