This question com- mands the attention of not only every educator and public official but every citizen. The primary problem in Ameri- can education today is that of pub- lic support  or, rather, the lack of it. It cannot meet the challenge; it cannot resolve its first obligation agreement, among educators and the public generally, as to the pur- pose, the basic objective of the in- stitution of American education. There are many ideas regarding the objective and some are in sharp conflict. This conflict should be set- fated by forces working secretly to undermine our nation. The No. 1 purpose or objective of American education today -- in the midst of a world crisis -- must be: To prepare people for citizen- ship in our own American Repub- lic. There are, of course, a num- be of secondary purposes and ob- jectives; but until this basic one is achieved, with the awareness and support of the entire citizenry, the great challenge to American education has not been met and the structure of human freedom will continue to be in jeopardy. Long Range Stake The broader and loftier quest of education -- for knowledge; for :truth  is at stake too, in the ful- 'fillment of the immediate great challenge. If American freedom were to be destroyed, because of a generation's failure to understand freedom and the elements which any crisis threatening it. And this is education's responsibility. The American public will, I think, agree. Stocker and Feeder Summary Week Ending Wednesday, Nov. 23 A sharply reduced number of stacker and feeder cattle and calves moved countryward from the Sioux City market during the week end- ed Wednesday, November 23. The outgo for the period totalled near- ly 12,000 head and included nearly 3,500 stacker and feeder steers ave- raging over 500 Ibs. These sold for an average price of $16.38 per hundreweight, and averaged 736 Ibs. throughout. In the proceeding week, more than 8,200 which ave- raged 706 Ibs. and sold for $16.43 were purchased by farmers and feeders. In the same period last year more than 6,200 cleared to stacker and feeder interests at an average price of $19.78 and at an average weight of 728 Ibs. Nearly 1,200 stock heifers clear- ! safeguard it, mankind's quest for led on country account during the knowledge would be smothered for I week. Those sold at an average perhaps centuries. President Eis- price of $14.15 per hundredweight enhower has expressed apprehen- while weights averaged 630 Ibs. A sion because of (as the New York year ago the outward movement of Times reported) "the meager edu- stock heifers amounted to slightly cation given our people as to what mre than 1,400 head, the price their obligation is to a free form average was $15.75 and the average of government, what it means to support it and what it takes to keep it and pass it on." Without question the United States today is the foremost nation in the world. But are we likely to continue to hold this leadership? On the basis of history -- No. Throughout recorded history no na- tion has remained on top long. Moral, political and economic de- cay has always set in to undermine the strength and bring about the fall of every nation or civilization that has reached the pinnacle. Mor- al, economic and political decay are conditions governed by intellect and character -- the products of l citizenship education. Awakening Now The institution of American edu- cation has begun to awaken to the realities of the immediate chal- lenge. Many Americans have been slow in recognizing the true nature of Communism and its false-face twin, Socialism; and this was a factor in the unpreparedness of education when the Red menace created a world crisis nearly 10 years ago. It probably will require another 20 years for adequate citi- zenship textbooks, materials and techniques to reach all the schools weight was 659 Ibs.
