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 traveled across the United States telling interesting stories about the Americans. His stories were broadcasted on the CBS television network later some were published in books. Here is Shep O’ Neal with today’s story “on the road ”

 

I have the somewhat unrealistic ideas that I would find interesting stories at every cross-road throughout the American countryside, so the camera man, sound man and I started out with great hope from New York city. For a few raining days, we drove through the small towns of new England, the north east corner of the United States. We drove endlessly without one idea in our heads. I began to get nervous wondering if the idea would never come, then the sun came out and the wind started to blow and the bright autumn leaves shook and fell off the trees. Yellow and red and gold rang down all around us. In every town children were playing and hilled up leaves. We got the camera out and did our first story about how pretty it all was. As a new reporter I was used to going fast and working hard. These current of stories however seems to work best when I work slow and took it easy when I finally took off the sense of speed of a newsman. I did not have to worry about finding stories any longer, they found me.

 

In westview, Ohio, I met professor John Franklin Smith. He taught speech and German at / college until he was 70 years old. Then the school rules said he had to retire, he could not imagine leaving the children behind. So when he was forced to retire, he just kept working at the college. He had continued to work for15 years as a cleaning man in /Museum. During my years as a professor he said, I will work through the museum and see the man cleaning the floor. I knew what a / was and what a pocket was. It was hard work for me at first but I get used to it. It’s necessary to work.
