Our story today is called On the Road.It was written by American reporter Charles Corot.It's from his book called a life on the road.For many years CC travalled across the United States telling interesting stories about Americans.His stories were broadcast on the CBS Television Nerwork,later some were published in books.Here is shapo new with today's story on the road.

 

I had the somewhat unrealistic idea that I would find interesting stories at every crossroad throughout the American countryside.So the camera man,sound man and I started out with great hope from New York city.For a few rainy days we drove through the small town New England,the northeast corner of the US.We drove aimlessly without one idea in our heads,I begain to get nervous,wondering if an idea would ever come.Then the sun came out,and the wind started to blow and bright autumn leaves shook and fell off the trees.Yellow and red and gold rains down all around us.In every town children would playing in hills of leaves.We got the camera out and did our first story about how pretty it all was.As a news reporter I was used to going fast and working hard,these kinds of stories,however,seems to work best when I went slow and took it easy.When I finally shook off the sense of the speed of a news man,I did not have to worry about finding stories ang longer,they found me!

 

In west hill Ohio,I met professor JFS.He taught speech and drama at / college until he was 70 years old.Then the school / said he had to retire.He could not imagine leaving the students behind,so when he was forced to retire he just kept working at the college.He had continued to work for 15 years as a cleaning man in the gymnasium.During my years of professor,he said,I would walk through the gym and see the man cleaning the floor.I knew what a mop was and what a bucket was.It was hardwork for me at first,but I got used to it.It's necessary to work!

"I am who I am, simply becayse I am not and can't be anyone else."
