(Photo by John Hamilton) Burt Woman Home After Eastern Convention, Tour BURT - Miss Lura Sewick is home from a 3800 mile trip that took her to the National Education Association Convention at New York City and as a delegate from Iowa to the National Classroom Teachers Workshop In Connecticut. She accompanied Mrs. Brown of Forest City who is the state president. Following is an article "A History Lesson" by Miss Sewick, relating her experiences. - o . "During the first week in New York, I spent some time visiting the United Nations, Worlds Fair, Statue of Liberty, Radio City, Empire State Building, Lincoln and Rockefeller Centers. We were indeed kept busy while at the N. E. A. Convention, but it was well worth while. I was privileged to meet President Johnson, who was given an honorary life membership in the N. E. A. We we re also delighted to hear the national commander of the American Legion. After our session of N. E. A. ended and with our visit to New York we left for Storrs, Connecticut, where the National Classroom Teachers Workshop was held. We were allotted some time lor historical tours and these included visits to the Mystic Seaport, Old Sturbridge Village, the Nathan Hales home, Freedom Trail in Boston, Niagara Falls, Hyde Park where we visited the graves of Franklin D. and Eleanor Roosevelt. Returning to Iowa we stopped at West Branch wnere we spent hours in Herbert Hoover Memorial Library, graves and birthplace. To me, the simplicity of the Hoover Memorial was so much more impressive than the many others we visited, with the exception of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D, C, Another thing that made a deep Impression on me was to see "Old Glory" flying every day before so many homes in the east. My only regret of this wonderful experience was that I could not have taken all of my history students with me for this very great history lesson." Miss Sewick is a junior high history instructor in the Forest City school system.
