The horrors of some women and children

Atlanta,Georgia- These days little kids and women are forced to work in factories for as little as four cents a day. Some have to stand the whole time until everyday and eventually become flat footed which is very painful. People actually have the nerve to still call it okay. Is it okay for kids not to be able to come out and play? Is it okay for them not to have the chance to go to school? Or see the light of day? We need to stop this.

Fight For Your Country!

Washington D.C- I Want You For U.S. Army, Your country needs you. We are at war and this is your time to serve. The Military is looking for men between the ages of 21 and 30. The new selective service act that congress has passed requires any men between these ages to be drafted into the armed forces. This is a good thing because we need all the help we can get at a time like this. If you wish to object to this, you can visit your local draft boards and turn in a application. All though your board does have the option to deny your application and then you must take a position or face prison.

The famous painting the American Gothic was made in Iowa and was based off of Iowa scenery. The American Gothic was painted in 1930 and the artist was Grant Wood. He visited the small town of Eldon in Iowa where he was from and spotted a barn with an over sized window, which took up the background of his painting. The people spotted in the painting were his sister and dentist playing the roles of a father and daughter. They were wearing clothing similar to the pictures in his family's albums. After this he was inspired to paint the picture of his dentist and sister. Wood first showed his painting at the Art Institute of Chicago and won a money prize and became very famous after that.

Arlington's National Cemetery granite headstones come from Vermont where people say is the "nicest granite". The Granite industry took off just after the war of 1912. This stone industry was started in Barre, Vermont where people would cut into hills and use it to build sidewalks and parts of homes. Barre supplied the stone for the state house of Montpelier. People came from all places to help with this economic boom.

Don't Waste Your food.

Washington D.C., Help the soldiers fighting for your country in this difficult war. Try to use less wheat and meat so we have more for are soldiers and any way you could reduce your food supply would benefit them. When having people over or just a meal for your family serve just enough. Use any leftovers so you don't need to go buy more food. Think about what you are buying before you buy it and if you actually need it. Everybody should be thinking about these points in a time like this.

The One and Only Charlie Chaplin!

London,England- Our own Charlie Chaplin is starring in a new silent movie called 'A women of Paris". Charlie was born April 16, 1889. Charlie had a rough childhood with his father being absent and his mother admitted into an insane asylum at the age of 14. He also started films at a young age when he was a part of Keystone studios at the age of 19. In 1919 he co founded his own company called United Artists which gave him complete control of his films. I expect to see great things from Charlie as you should too.

"I have many problems in my life. But my lips don't know that. They just smile." -Charlie Chaplin

Should we take control of hawaii?

Washington D.C- Many Americans are beginning to believe it's time to claim territories abroad. New markets and a military advantage sounds good for our country. Some are saying that we should also spread are religious beliefs. We are looking at taking an island 2,000 miles west of California, Hawaii. It will be an ideal spot for coaling stations and naval bases for ships traveling to and from Asia. We eventually will send over missionaries to spread Christianity and hopefully will over throw the monarchy so Hawaii can be the 50th state.
