WHEN Canonicus, war chief of over 2000 savage Narragan setts, sent a snake-skin filled with arrows to the handful of Plymouth settlers, Governor Bradford's answer was the same snake-skin, but filled with gunpowder and bullets - the challenge accepted in unmistakable terms. He thus defined New England's attitude toward disturbersof the peace. A recent occurrence in Massachusetts clearly demonstrated the vitality of this New England ideal - fearless, uncompromising maintenance of law and order. New Englanders -in fact all Americans who glory in the old American traditions - will celebrate during the coming year the Tercen tenary of the First Landing. Visit old Plymouth and Provincetown; Boston, the scene of the famous "Tea-Party"; Salem, the home port of many old Yankee clipper ships; Lexington and Concord, where was fired the shot "heard round the world."
