Rogers frontiers Are still with us about frontiers did they Tanish with the 19th Century after the Prairie schooners reached the Pacific and we became nation reaching from Ocean to Ocean we err k we think so. Even geographic frontiers Are till wit us. Along the Frozen wastes o anal Utica the 20th Century counterpart of the rough and ready boys whose covered wagons lumbered toward the setting Sun to Day drive their tractors across the Snow and ice at the Bottom of the world. But the frontiers of geography Are limited. There Are few places along the land or water surface of the Globe a which have not yielded to the persistent and venture some spirit of the human race. But there Are frontiers remaining other than geography. The breakthroughs accomplished by modern technology resulting in new and entirely different concepts of Power and travel have multiplied out frontiers and magnified the necessity for an entirely new Type of Pioneer. Our world today is Small Anc very Complex a world in which a disease spot in Samarkand is dangerous to Florence to Chicago to san Francisco or any other place on the Globe. In this Small world the underprivileged around the Earth Are demanding a place in the Sun. They Are fomenting Revo Lution everywhere. It is one of the inescapable facts of this mid twentieth Century. New ideas and new compulsions Are a driving Force everywhere. We have at our disposal hitherto undreamed of. In the 12 years since the end of world War h we have developed our Power resources so rapidly As to completely revolutionize the pattern of warfare.

It depends upon accept the Challenge of the new frontiers opened by them. They Are not frontiers of geography. They Are frontiers that have to do with people and with the Fine Art of living together. They have to. Do with the difficult and stub born problem of human relations with the spirit and Quality of the individual hts Elf and his adjust ment to the. World social order. They extend across the boundaries of race and color and Creed. They grapple with the problem of How to cause people who differ As to the background As to individual and National heritage to act harmoniously and in Goodwill. They Are concerned with ignorance and prejudice and the prob lems of personal and social Mal adjustment created by them. They wrestle with the problem of har Nessing the Power and the scientific Genius of today s world to the higher Power and higher Genius of spiritual dynamics. These Are the new fron tiers. They emerge at a time when people Are on the March every where when science has diminished the world into one Only hours around for travel and moments for communication when nuclear Energy Jet planes and intercontinental missiles Are the fearful weapons at Man s disposal. They Are the frontiers of spirit when we draw wealth from the Temple Hills and the quiet Woods and Blue sky where we draw from the great Reservoir of music and poetry and Faith tin inspiration for peace and Friend ship and Goodwill to All Mankind where we find in the spiritual satisfaction of the Good life the deep Contentment that wealth and Power cannot bring where we under stand what general Wolfe mean when after Reading Grey s just before the Battle of Quebec he exclaim cd i had Tatlier have written that to inv than to take Quebec on the they Are More difficult fron tiers ii Ian those of geography they front human passion and greed they contend with the fore is of ill will.
