Real functional American citizenship should be appreciated and stressed more in our schools. Many children lack an understanding of the history and government of their city, state and nation. Our National Bicentennial Celebration is a very appropriate time to instill in these youngsters this knowledge in a fascinating manner. It is a time to motivate them to read the stirring accounts of our country's past. It is a time for awareness of the significant contributions of prominent leaders and their impact upon our present city, state and union.
