Speakers laud ‘Peace Avenue of Flags’ ideal Originally published in the Daily Globe in 1971. By LEW HUDSON Regional Editor Sargent Shriver made it abundantly clear Saturday that absence from the political arena has neither dulled his concern for the world’s “little people” nor dulled one of liberalism’s sharpest spokesmen. Shriver, onetime head of the Office of Economic Opportunity and first head of the Peace Corps, later United States ambassador to France and now in private law practice in New York City, was the featured speaker at the 31st annual King Turkey Day celebration in Worthington. His hair a little longer and much greyer than when he last spoke in Worthington on the occasion of the 1961 National Cornpicking contest, Shriver delivered a ringing address showing the same measure of concern for common people which he so amply exhibited when he was organizing the Peace Corps for President Kennedy. FOREIGN POLICY begins at home, Shriver said. “We cannot lead the world to peace if we have not led our people here at home to lives of peace. We cannot negotiate with the world if we cannot talk to each other.” “We cannot have an effective foreign policy,” he continued, “or a country worthy of our pride until we return to our nation’s historic belief that people are what government is all about, that people come first at home and abroad.” He went on to quote Abraham Lincoln’s words about government of the people, by the people and for the people and charged, “Today, too

Cheryl La Pointe explains Pipe to Shriver. often, we have had a government of statistics by bureaucrats and for the big interests.” “Ten years ago, in 1961, our country was regarded affectionately by democratic leaders of the people in India, Africa and South America. They looked to us for inspiration and they got it. “The President of the United States was received with tumultuous joy and celebration in Mexico, in Berlin, by the white man in Ireland and the black man in Africa,” Shriver went on to quote a South American leader who replied to President Kennedy’s question about the size and the friendliness of the welcome he received by saying, “They think you are on their side.” “Our president was on their side,” Shriver said, “but whose side are we on today? The world outside the United States thinks we are on the side of the wealthy and the powerful.” “That’s not the America of Lincoln at Gettysburg… our revolution was for justice for the little people against the powerful. We must recall

our heritage and renew the struggle to make sure that ‘government of the people, by the people and for the people’ shall not perish from the earth.” SHRIVER condemned the present administration for not talking fully and frankly with Congress, he condemned officials talking in the prison at Attica and for not telling the truth in Vietnam and called for changes to “put people ahead of guns, bombs and dollar diplomacy.” Shriver said standing in front of the Nobles county courthouse made him feel optimistic for the chances for peace in the world. “Over in Europe people think this part of the United States is isolationist. I wish they could be here today to see this avenue of flags which you have created.” In these thoughts, Shriver was joined by Sen. Walter Mondale who told the crowd, “Worthington is my idea of a progressive, advanced community. There is a sense of optimism and enthusiasm apparent here.” He said Worthington has shown a deep concern for her

young people and the future of the community. There aren’t too many communities with the vision to accept as a project this Peace Avenue of Flags, he concluded. Judson Bell, an official of the Agency for International Development, agreed by extending congratulations to the people of Worthington on their pride in the community, their pioneering spirit and the concern for world understanding and the promotion of peace made evident by the Avenue of Flags. That southwest Minnesota people have always had a concern for peace even back before written history was pointed out by Cheryl LaPointe, a Sioux Indian from Rosebud, S.D., and the current Miss South Dakota Indian. Dressed in traditional doeskin dress and beaded moccasins, she told the meaning of the pipe of peace, material for which was quarried at Pipestone on Sioux lands which were open to members of all tribes to come in peace for hundreds of years. She told the legend of the buffalo maiden who gave the pipe originally to two braves and who told them it was only to be used by those who are pure of heart. SHE TOLD how the carved image of the buffalo on the bowl represents all fourlegged animals of the world, how the stem represents the trees and grasses, how the eagle feather decoration represents all the winged creatures, the bowl the earth, and how the four colors in the decorative ribbons represent the four races of men. “All things on earth are symbolized in this pipe,” she said. “It has been so used for hundreds of years and I think it

will be so used in the future,” she concluded. Miss LaPointe presented to Shriver and Mondale handmade pipes from the Pipestone quarries and then was in turn presented one by Mayor Ray Schisler as a remembrance of her day in Worthington. She turned back to the microphone and said it was a custom of the Sioux to return a gift when one is presented and gave the pipe which had been given her to her Worthington host. Miss LaPointe, Shriver and Mondale were also given miniature desk sets displaying the United States and United Nations flags. They were products of The Achievement Center of Worthington, a factory whose entire workforce is drawn from the handicapped. ALSO ON the guest platform for the dedication program for the Avenue of Flags were Pierre Aubin, assistant Canadian consul, Evelyn Sarris of the consulate of Costa Rica, Karen Oberling the new Miss Worthington, and a number of civic and political leaders from the local level. Two national figures who were present earlier in the day but had to leave prior to program time were Congressman John Zwach of Walnut Grove and Turkey Day’s biggest booster, Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey. Both expressed regrets at having to leave early. For Humphrey, it was perhaps a new record. It was the only one of about 15 Turkey Days he has visited in which he didn’t say a single word officially. Before leaving, however, he promised to rectify that. He said if he decides to run for president next year and if he is successful in getting the nomination, he will insist on including Turkey Day in his campaign itinerary.

Turkey Day is said ‘success’ in recap of ’71 activities Originally published in the Daily Globe in 1971. With only a minimum of clean-up remaining after Worthington’s 31st Annual King Turkey Day Saturday, local officials are already planning for Turkey Day 1972. Harry Sowles, veteran chairman for the annual community event, termed the day “a success” and said invitations would be going out soon to speakers for the next Turkey Day. R. SARGENT SHRIVER, keynote speaker and the man who formal-

ly dedicated the Peace Avenue of Flags, promised to take the message of the flags of peace to Europe and to all the people of the world. The dedication ceremony had a special meaning for Mr. and Mrs. Charles Cashel, organizers of what has now become Worthington Crailsheim International, Inc. The Cashels were the original sponsors of adoption of the sister city of Crailsheim, Germany in 1947. It was through the efforts of the couple that the community first attempted

to reach out in a spirit of world brotherhood. Now, 24 years later, the community’s interest in world peace continues through the Peace Avenue of Flags. “This day has a special significance for us,” Mrs. Cashel said from her seat on the reviewing stand. Now retired and spending their summers in Alexandria, the Cashels were not surprised at the continued community interest in international relations. “We’re especially proud of the roster of Crailsheim exchange students that

is on display at the senior high school,” Mrs. Cashel added. CAZUKO SOFUE, a Japanese exchange student who attended Worthington State Junior College and is now attending Hamline University, was enjoying her third Turkey Day. “This was my first chance to see the parade,” she said. “The other two years I was in the parade.” Then the pert political science student added, “Worthington has become my home now.”
