my little triumphs in high school. I won the Five-State Speaking Contest,
and I was elected president of the student council. I think I got
that job because of my democratic nature. I looked down on no one
and I could get along with both the students from the country and
those from the city. Sayre, a metropolitan town of 3,000, was considered
the City, and sometimes the city folks thought they were
a little better than the farmer folks.
