PROGRAM 16 “ Washington, D.C.: The Nation’s Capital”

Today on TUNING IN THE U.S.A., we are on a train going to Washington, D.C. Ellen Stewart is taking Alexandra Pappas to visit the nation’s Capital. They are, in many ways , like other tourists. They want to visit the Air and Space Museum and the many great monuments. But they are not just tourists. Ellen has some business to do with her congressman at the House of Representatives.

ACT I
Conductor: [ He speaks into the loudspeaker on the train. ] Three minutes until arrival in Washington, D.C.
Ellen: Alexandra, wake up! We’re almost there.
Alexandra: Oh, I fell asleep on the train. I guess I haven’t been very good company. I’m sorry, Mrs. Stewart.
Ellen: That’s OK. In fact, I needed the time to organize these papers.
Alexandra: What are they?
Ellen: They are a petition. I’ve got over five thousand signatures on it from people in our town. They all want the government to give money for after-school programs.
Alexandra: What are you going to do with the papers?
Ellen: I’m going to give them to Congressman McGrath.
Alexandra: Oh. Is he expecting you?
Ellen: No. I’ll just leave them with the secretary in his office. We have a lot to do in two days. Let’s stop by the congress man’s office and then go straight to the Air and Space Museum.
[ Later, Ellen and Alexandra are at the offices of Congress.]
Ellen: Congressman McGrath, I didn’t expect to see you. I want to thank you for taking the time to meet me.
McGrath: Well, Mrs. Stewart, when my secretary told me that you carried this petition all the way from New York to Washington, I wanted to meet you.
Ellen: I believe our children should have the best care and education possible during the school day and after the school day. As you can see by these signatures, thousands of citizens feel the same way.
McGrath: I will read your petition carefully. Thank you for bringing it to me. Can you introduce me to your young friend?
Ellen: This is Alexandra Pappas. She’s a student from Greece.
McGrath: How do you do, Alexandra? I’m pleased to meet you.
Alexandra: The pleasure is mine.
McGrath: What do you think of Washington, D.C.?
Alexandra: It’s a beautiful city.
McGrath: [ He laughs.] I guess it is.
Alexandra: And I can’t believe we’re actually meeting you. Well, I mean, Mrs. Stewart had this idea. People are interested. Now we are in Washington talking to you.
McGrath: Well, my job is to represent the people in my district, like Mrs. Stewart. Our government works that way.
Alexandra: And we are getting a pretty close look at it.
McGrath: Now, Mrs. Stewart, I can’t promise you anything will happen with this petition. But I can give you something. Here are two tickets to the visitor gallery for this afternoon.
Ellen: Tickets to watch Congress?
McGrath: Yes, both of you can sit in the visitor gallery of the House of Representatives and watch Congress at work.
Alexandra: The United States Congress! Just wait till Robbie hears about this!
