This week we are again celebrat-
ing the great day of the giving of
thanks. This day has been recognized
as a National day of celebration ever
since the first Thanksgiving Day was
celebrated by the Pilgrims, after
they had harvested their first crop in
The celebration of Thanksgiving is
carried on in a diffeernt. way than
most of our National holidays.
Thanksgiving is a day of the giving
of thanks unto the Lord for the many
bountiful gifts He has provided for
us during the year. We should all
show our appreciation of the Lord’s
gifts whether they have been great
The American people have been
especially blessed by the abundance of
food that they have been able to
produce. Sometimes it seems that it
is not a blessing but it is much bet-
ter to have too much than not
enough. “There is no one in America
who will starve this winter," was a
statement made by a high official of
the present administration. That is
something we should be thankful for.
Many of us are so inclined to grum-
ble because we can’t get enough
money. Well, what is money anyway?
As long as we have clothes to wear,
a home to live in, and food to eat, we
should be satisfied. Many have neith-
Therefore, let us all give thanks
uhto the Great Provider on this great
Thanksgiving Day. M. P. S.
It‘s all over but the shouting! This
week “exam Week” ends the first term
of the 1933 session at Clifton College.
It is almost miraculous to behold
the studious looks adorning the faces
of Clifton College students this week.
Everyone is fairly overflowing with
information, acquired during a three-
months’ period of hard study—or,
during a few hours before exam.
It is rumored that Toby Pederson
had his English theme ready two
days before it was due! If we didn’t
know Toby so well we’d begin to be-
lieve that he has decided to take
life seriously—at last.
Another thing, Marty Sorenson got

The academy honor roll for the first
term is as follows: Luther Reinertsen
94.2, Helene Reinertsen 92.8, Carrol
Nelson 91.66, Esther Knudson 91.5.
The chorus will render a Christmas
cantata on Friday night, Dec. 15. The
Chorus has practiced diligently on
this cantata for some time. The pub-
lic is cordially invited to attend.
There will be no charges, but a free-
will collection will be taken.

stration club, Mrs. Otto Eberspacher,
has not only fitted up one bed for a
demonstration but she has ma
spying covers, mattress coven, pads,

beds in her home, reports Miss Edith

stration agent. Very Uttle expense

One mattress pad was
thin unbleached domestic padded
with a blanket which was too thin to
be used as a covering. Mrs. Eb
refinished all the floors and
the woodwork of her home, and has
also reflniehed several pieces of fur-
niture. A silk rug for the
Thanksgiving, as we all know, was
instituted by the Pilgrims to give
thanks for bringing them through
their first year in America safely,
and this custom has been observed to
the present day.
In both good and bad times there
are always thousands of people un-
able or unwilling to enter into the
spirit of Thanksgiving Day. Perhaps
a greater number than usual this
year will find it difficult to list their
blessings and be thankful for them.
Therefore it remains for the more
fortunate to cheer and inspire and re-
new the hope of those who have been
less successful. Every citizen should
be thankful that the political atmos-
phere is clearing; that the world’s
best minds are employed in an effort
to work out bothersome economic
problems; that nations are giving
earnest consideration to disarms
ment in the furtherance of world-
wide peace and the increasing con-
fidence in one another. Blessings of-
ten come disguised, and our experi-
ences of the past twelve months
should have prepared us to enjoy the
blessings which will come to us dur-
ing the new era of prosperity which
we are now entering. F. B.

2,000 CITIES TO GET AIRFIELDS
Washington, Nov. 24.—Asserting
an Administration determination to
“stimulate private flying,” Eugene L.
Vidal, director of aeronautics of the
Department of Commerce, Friday
disclosed that $10,000,000 had been
set aside from the civil works fund
to construct landing fields in 2,000
cities and towns.
More than $8,000,000 of the money
allotted, he said, would go for wages
to an estimated 50,000 men. Even the
smallest villages are eligible, and he
urged that towns lacking a field or
inadequately supplied submit early
applications. $$ }.

Louisville Courier-Journal: Does
America need instruction and council
in the matter of tolerance? Many
Americans might be inclined to give
a hasty negative in answer to such a
question, for this country has been
considered the melting pot of races,
the land of the free for people of all
religious beliefs. The first pilgrims
who landed at Plymouth Rock estab-
lished that tradition, and to some it
would seem that the ideal of those
early days has never been obliterated
in the consciousness' of America.
There is an announcement in
press, however, that a group of throe
clergymen will soon begin a tour wf
the Nation, speaking to audiences in
39 cities, of which Louisville wifi be
one, on the virtue of tolerance. That
virtue, fortunately, is not the peculiar
possession of any creed or sect,
though it has often been extolled as a
fundamental attribute of the Chris-
tian faith.. During the "tolerance
tour,” representatives of three diver-
gent faiths, a Presbyterian minister,
a Catholic priest, and a Jewish rabbi,
will attempt to show their audiences
how vital a part this virtue of toler-
ance plays in the realization of all
These talks might be more fitting-
ly given in Germany, some Americans
may say. Certainly there is a need of
them there, but there is a need in
this country as well. In a Nation that
thinks of religious persecution as &
disgraceful attribute of medieval cul-
ture, there are daily evidences of
bigotry and intolerance that are me-
dieval in their conception, if not
their manner of demonstration.
Louisville has its evidences of in-
tolerance, like the other 38 cities on
the itinerary, and it is a good thing
that the tour will swing this way.
