THE PRICE OF FREEDOM George Washington wus u leader who recognized the gifts and talents of others and assigned to each the task for which he was fitted. His simple, unassuming manner well graced a republic and helped to make him the true leader thai lie was. On the birthday of our first President, it is well to remember the fundamental principles he propounded—principles that have helped guide this nation through the years. It was a cold day at Valley Forge as General Washington prayed for Divine guidance for our young nation in its moment of severe trial. Later General Washington met with a group of his military. With tears in his eyes—not tears of fear or failure but rather tears of pride for his fellow man and admiration for his struggling nation—he gave his military patriots a simple command, "Put none but Americans on guard tonight." What General Washington meant was simply this: the salvation of our cause required true men, men willing to stand firm in the face of great odds. Men who loved their flag and liberty and freedom more than life. Men willing to prove it. His words are just as true now as in 1776. Following the dinner the group went to the Gary Davis home for an evening of visiting. Aleeda Ites of Alden, became the bride of Jesse Harms ^Titonka at Alden on Feb. 15, " 1934.
