The Friendship of Nations a Story of the Peace Movement for Young People

Excerpt from The Friendship of Nations a Story of the Peace Movement for Young People This little book has a twofold purpose. It aims to serve as a manual of public exercises for the observance of Peace Day and as a supplementary reader for the school and home. As a reader the uses of the book will be evident. To some teachers, however, the idea of employing prose for public recitations may be new. To such it is suggested that a chapter, abbreviated to meet requirements, be assigned, paragraph by paragraph, to all the members of a class or to only a few, as a single poem is often assigned to four or five children. Each child should memorize his portion and speak it in the proper place in the text. In this way an entire entertainment may proceed without announcement or interruption, if the teacher so desires. It may seem rather presuming of the author to suggest that her own work be memorized. It is, however, only for want of simple, classic literature touching upon the subject that she makes the suggestion. There are many days upon the school calendar which, for one reason or another, claim observance. Yet none is more far-reaching in influence or more noble in conception than the day upon which arbitration and the new internationalism may be celebrated. Equally true is it that no other subject for celebration offers to the teacher such a wealth of material correlated with his daily work.
