Now the VOA Special English Program American Stories. Our story today is called “On The Road”, it was written by American reporter Charles Kuralt. It is from his book called “a life on the road”. For many years, Charles Kuralt travelled cross the United States telling interesting stories about Americans. His stories were broadcast on the CBS television network. Later, some were republished in books. Here is Shep O’Neal with today’s story “On The Road”. I had somewhat unrealistic idea that I would find interesting stories at every corss road through out American countryside. So the cameraman, soundman and I started out with great hope from New York city. For a few really days, we drove through the samll towns of New England. The Northeast corner of United State, we drove aimlessly without one idea in our heads. I began to get neverse, wondering if an idea would ever come. Then the sun came out and the wind start to blow and bright autumn leaves shook and fell off the trees, yellow and red and gold rained down all around us. In every town children were playing in hills of leaves. We got the camera out and did a first story about how pretty it all was. As a new reporter I was used to going fist and working hard. This kind story, however, seem to work best when I went slow and took it easy. When I finally shook off the sense of speed of newsman, I didn’t have worried about finding stories any longer. They found me. In Westville, Ohio, I met a professor Jorn Frankland Smith. He talked a speech and drama at Otterbain College and tell his 70 years old. Then the school rules said he had to retire. He could not image review the students behind, so when he was forced retire, he just kept working at the college. He had continue to work for 15 years as a clearning man in the gymlasium. “During my years of professor,” he said, “I would work through the gym and say the man clean the floor. I knew what a mop was and what a bucket was. It was hard work for me at first, but I got used to it, it was necessary to work.”
