We must in some way unite all institutions, all organizations, all individuals having any interest in country life...
Página 228 - Perhaps it is not too much to say that through a series of properly conceived and well-conducted festivals the civic and institutional life of an entire county or district, and the lives of many individuals of all ages, may be permanently quickened and inspired, the play movement thus making surely for greater contentment, cleaner morals, and more intense patriotism and righteousness on the farm lands and in the village populations of our country. Such, indeed, are the socializing effects of organized...

The country child does not play enough. His repertoire of games is surprisingly small and inadequate. If...
