[Title page: A Compendious Dictionary for the English Language, by Noah Webster, 1806]

U.S. Reports: Moncure v. Zunts, 78 U.S. (11 Wall.) 416 (1871)

"We are never too old to learn." This old adage has been clearly proven in the case of Noe Demers of Massachusetts, who at the age of 70 years has mastered the English language and passed his citizenship examination. He was recently chosen as one of the three outstanding Americanization students in the state of Massachusetts and rewarded with a trip to the National Capital where he was received by President Coolidge today. He is shown in picture with Congresswoman Edith Nourse Rogers of Massachusetts who presented him to the president [White House, Washington, D.C.]

Mrs. Mary N. Silveira, who is managing editor of the Portuguese Journal, was born in the Azores Islands. She and her husband have owned and published this Portuguese paper since 1917. Mr. Silveira has been sick for the last five years and Mrs. Silveira has been in full charge of the paper. "Through the medium of this Portuguese language newspaper, we are able to reach those older members of the community and state who have not learned the English language. Many of those people speak English, but as far as the written language is concerned we have been mostly interested in giving to the Portuguese a full coverage of local, national and international news because we believe that by this way the people of Portuguese descent become better citizens of the United States." says Mrs. Silveira
