City Folks versus Country – Strength Magazine – February, 1924

Nothing is more firmly believed than that nearly all our great men come from the country. It is a part of our national tradition that the farm is the nursery of both physical strength and mental genius. All last summer on the subway trains of New York City was a large bulletin pleading with the young people to take the subway out to the parks and zoological gardens. The bulletin went on to state that a -majority of men who attained fame and fortune had been country born and reared and that their strength of mind and body were largely due to the fresh air and sunshine. Nothing this side of heaven is better for people than fresh air and sunshine except just one thing, and that is to have been born from strong and healthy parents.
