Any harm in a nap after
To most of us a nap after Thanksgiving din
ner is as much a part of Thanksgiving as the
turkey itself. And there’s no harm in that if
we don’t stay asleep to the responsibilities
that go with the good things we have to be
thankful for . . . the good things we enjoy
only because we are a free people.
But too many of us go right on napping
year after year.
45 million Americans failed to exercise
their right to vote in the last presidential
election! They were asleep to one of the
most fundamental duties of free Americans.
How many millions more of ns are asleep
to our other duties as citizens of a democ
racy? How many of us are napping when
we should get out to our Town Meetings
and other civic government groups? How
many millions of us pay union dues and
don’t vote in union elections — own stock
but throw away our proxies? How many of
us dodge jury duty?
These are our rights as free people! These
are the rights we’d all hate to lose—yet so
many of us do so little to help keep them.
We must do more than give thanks for the
good things freedom gives us—on Thanks
giving or any other day of the year. We
must work to keep our freedom. We have a
government “of the people”—and only the
people themselves can make it work right!
It takes 150 million full-time, wide-awake
citizens to keep our democracy going ——
to keep it going strong!
EVERY HOME should have this guide to
the Rights and Duties of an American.
Do you know your rights? Do you know the
nine keys to good citizenship ... the how
and why of each? You’ll

mation and many other
