Dial 2-7082 dial 2-3415 my Day by Eleanor Roosevelt f leans Lonait Vicli Geneva Switzerland. The Swiss Tell you with Pride of the years of struggle their ancestors went through to become a nation Quot and they consider this was a very great achievement. As we drove by the Wall in the old City of Geneva the other Day a Swiss told me that once upon a time their neigh Bors who were trying to conquer the City tried to scale the Wall and almost succeeded but were driven away by women who poured hot soup from kettles Down Over them. Its strange to think of the difficulties such a Little country had in becoming unified. Now they Are meticulous in recognizing the rights of minority racial groups. The new president elected the other Day Henrico Celio belongs to one of the minority groups. The papers Here give very Little news but from the Point of View of literature the articles which do appear Are Well Worth Reading. Because the death of Alphone Daudet the French novelist occurred somewhere near this Date one newspaper published a Long article about his books discussing his particular gift of describing people in All walks of life and of doing it with a love of human beings even when he recognized their faults. I do however miss the news coverage which we get at Home and i feel rather Cut off. One thing that emphasized for me the Small area of the country was an explanation i got from someone As to Why when i drove through an area where there were supposed to be Many Quot cows i never saw a single cow the gentleman whom i asked about this said a of course you never a cow they Are All kept indoors except for being allowed to go to a Small pasture about twice a week so they won t forget How to walk. Our Fields Are much too precious to be trampled by cows. You in America have plenty of land. We Cut our Small acreage Over and Over again to feed the cows and therefore save what they would otherwise this is a kind of Economy which our Farmers will be interested in but it does t make for having such healthy cows and in a quite sure that disease among them must be More prevalent Here than at Home. There is one thing Here which is done i suppose to keep out the cold Winter winds. Every window in our hotel is a double window and opens like a French window. If you have it open you get a tremendous amount of air but when both parts Are closed practically no air not even in a sure their coldest Winter wind could get through. I find i can buy a cuckoo clock and As that was one of the greatest Joys of my childhood in a certainly going to take one Home with me. As you know the watch and clock Industry is one of the most important in Switzerland. They Export 95 per cent of All the watch movements they make. We import about one third of their output and when they Send Only the movements these Are put into american cases.
