HOMEWORK

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 NEWYORK city. For a few rainy days we drove through the small towns in New England, the northeast corner of the US. We drove aimlessly without one idea in our heads. I began 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 of the trees. Yellow and red and gold rains down all around us. In every town children would be playing at the 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, seemed to work best when I went slow and took it easy. When I finally shook off the sense of speed of a news man, I did not have to worry about finding stories any longer. They found me. In West Hill Ohio, I met professor John Franklin Smith. He taught speech and drama at AUBTON college until he was 70 years old. Then the school rules 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 as a 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 hard work for me at first but I got used to it. It is necessary to work.:D
