"What It Means to Me to Be An American Citizen" When Shirley Ann Harvey, daughter of Mr, and Mrs. Robert Harvey, of Union- township, submitted her essay on "Whai It Means to Me to be an Am- ' erlcan Cltzen" It was awarded first place in twelve entries and was read before the rural school program Friday afternoon In Good Hope church Shirley Ann Is In the elglith grade, a pupil In Union District No. 5. Thrals the essay: When our ancestors came to America, they came mainly for freedom of religion. To be able to worship In your chosen church Is what I consider one of the most-prized things In life. I know now. that the religion I have chosen shall not Interfere wtlh my future career.' The government of my countr^ assures me that I shall have the right to vote when I reach the age of twenty-one. This means a great deal to me, because my forefathers gave their lives that .1 should be able to vote for the person I think •fit. I shall do my best to uphold this tradition. Another thing I consider important Is the fredom of speech and press. If a child is deciding upon becoming a speaker he Is free to develop his Ideals with the assurance that he will be able t6 express his views. No law holds him back. The freedom of press Is another valuable Item of the Bill of Rights. This Is one of the safeguards of democracy. Totalitarian states do not have this privilege. To be an American citizen not only means privileges to me, it also means r esponsibllitles. I believe, therefore, ft is my duty to serve my country in any way possible. I will keep myself physically fit. I will try to get as good an .education as possible to serve my country in the best manner I am able. This Is my duty so that I will be able to vote intelligently for the best men when I am of age. .1 will save my money for defense stamps and do my share In this war. I will save paper, metal and anything useful in carrying out the war effort, so as to make victory sure. .These are a few of the many privileges of American cltzetiship •which mean a great deal to me. •*' THE FINEST THINGS IN LIFE Hot! to th* most in Sioux Gty.''
