WEEKLY JOURNAL OF CHEERFUL COMMENT
' LINCOLN, NEBRASKA, MAY 5, 1911
NOW, ALL PUSHING AT ONCE
FOR LINCOLN AND NEBRASKA
Any sore spots? Forget 'em. Lincoln isn't going to the dem
nition bow-wows just because it didn't go your way. And it can
get anywhere worth while unless we all turn in and help push
Durn a whiner, anyhow!
If you cannot say a good word for the town you live in, then
for heaven's sake either shut up or move out and give some of
the rest of us a chance.
Looks a little damp in spots, but put on your goloshes or walk
around them if you don't like them but quit whining and do
something that counts or go somewhere worth while. Anything
but constant bellyaching and complaining."
Lincoln is a fine city to live in finer than it was yesterday
but not so fine as it will be tomorrow if you do your part.
"What is my part?" you ask.
Simplest question in the world. Your part is to talk for your
city every time you talk about it. Act like you rejoiced at the
privilege of being a citizen of Lincoln. Talk up, not down. Hold
up your head, walk like a man and declare that to be a citizen
of Lincoln is better than to be a ruler in a country of grouches
and knockers and bores.
The sun shines as bright today as it did when you won al
though it may look a bit brighter to the other fellow. Lincoln's
future is assured. Want to have a part in the making of that
splendid future? Then spit on your hands, .hunch up your trous
ers and take hold and pull and push.
Good old Lincoln! Better than ever, and getting better all
Grand old Nebraska. Never was a better state, never will be
a better one. Smile out loud and take a part in making city and
state bigger and better.
. God hates a coward and a quitter and a knocker. God and
everybody loves the cheerful booster. -
Be a booster! And be a Booster for Lincoln and Nebraska all
the time. ; ' . ' .
