(1) Apparently they do not. Take the 1948 presidential elec
tion, for instance. Just 51 per cent of the eligible U. S. voters
actually voted. In 1944, 57 per cent voted; in 1940, 63 per cent.
Apathy toward the right to vote seems to be getting more
pronounced. Put these percentages alongside those in foreign
countries during recent elections,
and what do you find? In Canada,
75 per cent of the eligible voters
voted; Sweden, 80 per cent; Is
rael, 72 per cent; England, 83 per
cent; Japan, 70 per cent; and
Italy, 80 per cent.

voting, write Walter Myer and
Clay Coss in “America’s Greatest
Challenge,” may be worse than
none at all. “The first job is to
encourage ... as many citizens
as possible to become informed
on the big issues of the day.”

the people. ‘Put this money to
work,’ the minister said.
"Members used it to make
baked goods for sale, to set up
hot-dog stands at the county fair,
and for dozens of other little en
terprises. Seven months later, the
