SERVICE AND THRIFT
A BACKWARD LOOK

The Magic Wand of Reading has revealed to you pictures of home and country. These pictures have been presented by men and women whose love of home and the homeland may be -no greater than yours and mine, but who can express our common feeling with much greater force and grace than we could do. Often, too, they give us new thoughts, and thus increase our capacity to love home and the homeland and all that centers about them. Which of the poems in this group have "home" for their theme? Which poet expressed the thought that the best thing about wandering is the home-coming? Who said "Homekeeping hearts are happiest"? Why do you think the author of "The Old Oaken Bucket" recalled so vividly the details of his childhood home? Are there any Eph Todds in your neighborhood or town? Such a story as "Thanksgiving at Todd's Asylum" makes us see how genuinely helpful and fine a person may be, whom we had thought of as being merely queer; can you think of any such person? What do you do to make yourself a helpful member of your home? How does being a worthy home-member fit one to be a good citizen? Read again in the Forward Look (page 73) the sentence that tells what gives the joy of home and the homeland. Which of the festivals do you think the artist had in mind when he drew the picture on page 77?
Maybe you are not old enough to have many tender memories of home, but you no doubt remember pleasantly certain Christmas and Thanksgiving celebrations, or a visit from grandmother; and just as these memories are closely connected with your feeling for home, so all that you learn about the homeland becomes part of your love for it. As you sat with Laurence and Alice and the other children around Grandfather's Chair, what did you learn about Washington and about the Boston Tea Party? Which of the poems in this group is the most stirring? Which makes you feel that we are a united country? In the Forward Look (page 74) read the lines that tell why America is truly great; which poem expresses this thought particularly
