NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS
RESOLVED, That on every possible occasion I will boost for my home
town and for my home state, and turn the cold shoulders to all "knockers"
That I will, whenever possible, purchase goods made in Nebraska by
Nebraska wage earners.
That I will give my insurance business to the reliable insurance companies
organized in Nebraska by Nebraska citizens, and assist them in building up
our own state instead of sending our millions to build up other communities
in other states.
That I will endeavor to acquaint myself with Nebraska's resources and
possibilities, to the end that I may be able to tell the real facts to all people
with whom I come in contact
That I will resent all unwarranted attacks upon my city and my state
made by those who are disgruntled and "sore" because things are not run
loose enough to suit their ideas of "personal liberty."
That I will lend my assistance to every effort to make Lincoln a bigger
and better city, and Nebraska a greater and grander state.
That I will strive for civic righteousness, municipal progress and cleaner
politics, refusing to be bound by party ties to the extent of voting for men
I know to be unfit for offices of public trust
That I will look upon the bright side, be optimistic instead of pessimistic,
and always ready to lend a helping hand.
That when I find it impossible to honestly speak well of my fellow citizens
I will endeavor to remain silent, speaking only when in my own heart I feel
. that it is my duty to the public to make the facts known.
That envy, jealousy, spite and personal grudge will not sway me in my
actions as a citizen.
That I will strive at all times, everywhere, to conduct myself as to reflect
credit upon myself, my family, my city, my state and my country.
That if the New Year is not one of progress it will be through no lack of
effort on my part
To all of which I pledge my word as a citizen.
