La salud y la educación, fundamentos de la democracia americana
It would prove impracticable to review all the problems now facing the peoples of the Americas. The subjects most important vary in their aspects in each country. Health, politics, industry, art, civic organiztion, science, philosophy, and especially medicine are problems frankly faced by a number of scientists and philanthropists. The work of a number of international institutions and the opening of the Panama Canal brought about a new era in the health and living conditions of the peoples of the American Republics. Great cultural and artistic opportunities are offered by the vast number of universities, hundreds of museums and public libraries to be found in the United States. The American people have made a cult of health, though in a vastly different manner than was done in Greece and Rome. Health is the basis of democracy in the United States, which is guarded even before birht and is given the best of care throughout childhood, adolescence and maturity. This respect for health, the zealous vigilance on the part of the Government, the schools and universities, is the secret of the extraordinary might of the American people. In the United States Health and Education represent a second national emblem which protects its citizens wherever they may pitch their tents(AU)
