'And I try to do it well.'

 

I asked him which brought him more satisfaction, being a professor or being a cleaning man.

 

He smiled and said, 'It is not fair to ask me a question like that. I think I would have to say that every age in life has its own rewards. I am still look ahead.' This 85-year-old man said, 'I do not want to die. There is too much fun in the world and a lot of good folks, a lot of them and good books to read and fish to catch and pretty women to look at and good men to know. Why? Life is a joy.'

 

Charles Kuralt also visited the pilot town of Louisiana, near the mouth of the Mississippi River. All the houses there are built on thick wooden legs, so that they will not be washed away when the river floods. The community can be reached only by boat or sea plane. That is where he met Andy Spirer.

 

Andy Spirer was a hunter and fisherman. He read books written in the Greek language. And for ten years he was the only teacher in a one-room school. Why did he stay in such a lonely place? 'Well,' he said, 'they have trouble getting teachers to live here. Somebody has to teach the children.'

 

As they continued driving across the United States looking for interesting stories, the on-the-road team found a green mill on a little river in the state of Maryland. The man who operated the mill was Captain Frank Languill. He was 81 years old.

 

The Linchester Mill ground corn for settlers in 1681. A hundred years later it ground corn for the army of General George Washington during America's War for Independence from Britain. And it was still grinding corn almost 200 years after that. It must have been the oldest continually operated business in the country. Yet the mill did not interest me as much as the miller. He had been working beside his mill stone for 65 years. Was he tired of the job? 'Yes,' Frank Languill said, 'yes, there really is no profit in it any more, but these farmers depend on me, you see. There is no other place around here to grind their corn.'

 

In professor John Franklin Smith, teacher Andy Spirer and miller Frank Languill, I saw Americans of a sort I have not known before. They were linked to the places where they lived. And they worked not so much for themselves.

Now the VOA Special English program American Stories.

Our story today is called On the Road. It was written by American Reporter Chaos Crop. It is from his book called the Life On the Road. For many years, Chaos Crop travels across the United States telling interesting stories about Americans’. His storied were broadcasted on the CBS net work. Later, some were published in books. Here is Sharpe O’Neal with today’s story On the Road.

 

I had the somewhat unrealistic idea that I would find interesting stories at every cross roads 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 towns of New England. The Northeast corner of the United States we drove endlessly without one idea on 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 the bright autumn leaves shook and fell of the trees. Yellow and red and gold rings down all of around us. In every town, children were playing in 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 slowly and took it easy. When I finally shook of the sense of speed of news man, I did not have to worry about finding stories any longer. They found me.

 

In west field Ohio, I met Profess John Frighten Smith. He taught speech and drama at outer by college until he was 70 years old. Then, the school rules said he had to retire. He could not imagine living the students behind, so when he was fourth to retire, he just kept working at the college. He had continued to work for fifteen years as a cleaning man in gemnessiem. During my years as a professor, he said, I would work through the Gem and see the men cleaning the floor. I knew what I 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.

“And I try to do it well.” I asked him, which brought him more satisfaction, being a professor or being a cleaning man? He smiled and said, “It is not fair to ask me a question like that. I think I would have to say, that every age in life has its own rewards. I’m still looking ahead.” This 85 year old man said, “I do not want to die. There is too much fun in the world, and a lot of good folks, a lot of them, and good books to read, and fish to catch and pretty women to look at, and good men to know. Why? Life is a joy.”
Charles Corot also visited * town * near the mouth of the Mississippi river. All the houses there are built on sick wooden *. So they will not be washed away when the river floods. The community can be reached only by boot or sea plane. That is where he met Andy *.
Andy * was a hunter and fisher man. He read books written in the great language. And for 10 years, he was the only teacher in a one room school. Why did he stay in such a lonely place? Well, he said, “they have trouble getting teachers to live here. Somebody has to teach the children.”
As they continued driving across the United States, looking for interesting stories, the “On the road” team found a green mill on the little river in the state of *. The man who operated the mill was Captain Frank *. He was 81 years old.
The * mill ground corn for settlers in 1681. A hundred years later, it ground corn for the army of General George Washington during America’s war for dependence from Briton. And it was still grinding corn almost 200 years after that. It must have been the oldest continually operated business in the country. Yet, the mill didn’t interest me as much as the miller. He had been working beside his middle stone for 65 years. Was he tired of the job? “Yes,” Franklin * said, “Yes, there really is no profit in it any more. But these farmers depend on me, you see. There is no other place around here to grind their corn.”
In Professor John Franklin Smith, teacher and the * , and miller Franklin *, I saw American * I had not known before. They were linked to the places where they lived. And they worked not so much for themselves.
