Thanksgiving 1 'ay away from the
folks and it makes me .so homesick,
to sec so many of Ire girls going
when 1 can't go," said Fairy discon-
solately, as she sat by the window,
watching three happy girls board a
street car that was to take them on
the first stage of their homeward
"Fairy Burton, don't tell me you're
becoming a pesimist," laughed her
roommate, Cassandra Meat's, who
was busily working algebra.
Her usually cheerful friend made
no response to this challenge, and as
Cassandra looked at her in astonish-
ment she s uv a big tear slowly run
down Fairy's cheek.
"Honey, don't take it so hard,"
she pleaded as she went quickly to
her roommate's side and put her
arm around her shoulders.
"Don't Sanra, please!" said Fairy.
"You'll m ike me really cry."
"Well, cry away, dear. It may
make you feel better," soothed San-
When Fairy had had i good cry on
her sympathetic^ friend shoulder,
she wiped her eyes, smiled

returned, bringing two letters with
"Here's a letter for you!" she
cried. "And I got one, too, from
"Oh, a letter from daddy!" . ex-
The girls read their letters in si-
lence. 1 nit as Fairy said as she fin-
ished hers, "Daddy says he's sending
me a iiic; Thanksgiving package that
will arrive on Thanksgiving Day.
That's tomorrow. Itr's something good
to eat, Ijrnoss. I'm so glad! "it's
been a long time, since I've tasted any
of mother's cooking."
"Did he say that's what it would
be?" asked Sandra.
"No, he said it was a surprise, but
I suppose that's it," replied Fairy.
"You never can tell," remarked
her roommate sagely.
Thanksgiving Day dawned clear
and bright, but bitterly cold.
Fairy and Cassandra slept, until 10
o'clock, then leisurely dressed, and
tidied up their room, after which
they breakfasted on Granges and cin-
A little later Fairy looked up from
the book she was reading and ex-
claimed, "Oh, Sandra, they won't de-
liver any packages today! I never
thought of that before. And now. I
won't get my surprise 'til to-morrow.
I guess daddy never thought of it ei-
ther, for he wrote that the package
would come today."
"Perhaps it will get here some
way," suggested Sandra.
"Pooh!" scoffed Fairy. "How can
it. when there's no delivery?"
They resumed their reading, and
were surprised to hear the dinner-bell
As they entered the dormitory on
their return from dinner, the matron
handed them each a special delivery
letter, and they ran happily up to
their moms to read them.
"Mine's from Roy," said Fairy,
"And mine's from Bob," returned
Then they both became absorbed
in their letters.
Fairy glanced up from hers,
from downstairs was heard

sacred to the family calendar and

day of memories and good will to

The observance of Thanksgiving
Day rrsfs been common in Xew Eng-j
land ever since the days of the May- j
flower, when the self-exiled band of i
devoted Christians, reached the j
shores of (-ape rod and rejoiced in j
the goodness which had preserved |
them while they crossed the ocean in j
search of religious freedom.
Just as those people had many i
things to give thanks for, so each I;
member of the Korosophian Literary
Society has some great gift for
which she should be truly thankful
on this Thanksgiving Day. Let Lu-
cille Blume be thankful that she is
so slim for she c m eat all the tur-
key she desires yet have, no fear
that it might increase her avoirdu
pois. Let Addie Lovender be thank-
ful she is stout—she has the assur-
ance she will not freeze these cold
days, for don't the records show that
many more slender people die in win-
ter than fat ones? Let Nina Hurley
be thankful she nu * cs such excel-

with such attributes?
We are glad that our president's

Let Grace Pate be thankful she sings
so well, because she is .able to enter-

any time. Let Rubye Edmonds be
thankful she does not sing for if she

in my life I arose with the sun!

I'll have you know! And with a

boarded the old Moss-back and crawl-
