lion of aliens in citizenship that the
United States government has under
taken through the Bureau of Natural
ization. Department of Labor. The
war has demonstrated beyond chance
for argument that this country stands
in continual menace from a horde
of unassimilated aliens whom we
have Invited to enter our ports. Every
army draft board in the country has
had abundant evidence of this fact.
Americanism is an issue which can
no longer be ignored.
it is proposed by the Bureau of
Naturalization to carry the American
ism issue directly to the foreigner
through the medium of the public
schools of the United States in every
district where a public school exists
Over 2UU0 public schools are now
cooperating with the Government
through the Bureau of Naturalization
in this work and the number is
constantly growing. The American
school has proven its worth in

a government based on the consent

oppression, and yet requires of its
citizens, because they are free to
govern themselves, a high degree of
morality and self control. We mustj
teach him, in other words, to be an
American among Americans. This is
the greatest aim of the Government
and the public schools, and the
support of all citizens is desired.
