"Small Towns"

"The small town rules America, because instead of being a place of hotels, restaurants and amusements, it is a place for normal living — where men walk home to lunch from their place of business and mow their own front lawns and weed their backyard gardens and bid their neighbors across either fence the time of day; where they not only live in today, but remember yesterday and plan for tomorrow; where families and communities retain, cherish and transmit traditions, there beats the heart of America"
(Dodge County, MN "Star", February 08, 1922)
