Sentinels of the America at this time begins a sig- nificant celebration not only to her own people, but to all the world. It is the 150th anniversary of the Federal Convention of 1787, which planned and wrote our Constitution, Prom late in May until mid-Sep- tember of that historic year, dele- gates from 12 of the original states met regularly in Philadelphia's lamed Independence Hall to produce an historic document now known and honored wherever democracy lives. What the men who wrote our great Constitution, and later its Bill of Rights, achieved, was important not alone to their own troubled period of history. It is profoundly important today. By placing the power of govern- ment firmly and permanently in the hands of the people; by assuring political and religious freedom to aQ citizens, they established a form of government which still stands as a model. In many other lands, kingdoms and empires have fallen. In certain other lands, Communism and Dicta- the twin foes of democracy their harsh tyrannies. But for generation after generation, un- der the safeguard of our Constitu- tion, America has grown in size, in prestige and in strength, and has of- fered its people standards of liberty, security and well-being equalled by no other nation on earth. That safeguard most be preserved. The nation-wide observance which extends through the summer should be more than a formal ceremony. It should be a national rededicatkm to the principles of liberty immor- talized by the Founders in the his- toric Charter that has borne Amer- ica to greatness. JOHN H.
