CRAWFORD FURNITURE CO. 806 Com'l Phone SM Still Confusion Over Thanks Day Even Some of F.D.R.'s Family Will Hold Two Observances Washington, Nov. 22 About half-the county will observe Thanksgiving day Thursday, but the confusion which followed President dent Roosevelt's decision to advance the customary date has extended right into his own family. ROOSEVELTS TO GEORGIA. The Chief Executive and the First Lady will have their turkey dinner Thursday night at the Warm Springs, foundation for Infantile paralysis patients.

Some of their children, however, will observe both Thursday's holiday and the one proclaimed by governors In some states for November 30. James, Roosevelt, the President's eldest son, will celebrate in New York Thursday and then go to Massachusetts, which has selected the traditional last Thursday In November. Mr. and Mrs. John Roosevelt also will have their turkey at Nahant, on the "second Thanksgiving." TWO FEASTS FOR ELLIOTT.

The governor of Texas proclaimed both Thursdays as a holiday, so Mr. and Mrs. Elliott Roosevelt will have two dinners at their ranch near Fort Worth. Mr. and Mrs.

Franklin D. Roosevelt, will have turkey Thursday at their cottage in Charlottesville, but next week they will have guests for Thanksgiving recess of the University of Virginia. The President's daughter, Mrs. John Boettiger of Seattle, will follow her father's example and observe only the "first Thanksgiving." The last time a he was the Lincoln tradition of having Thanksgiving on November's last Thursday, no calendar manufacturers complained, no football schedules were upset, no Christmas business boom was anticipated. GRANT CHANGED IT.

President Grant just said that, whereas the country had been prosperous and free of pestilence and peaceful, he would "recommend that Thursday, the 18th day of November next, be observed" as a day of Thanksgiving in 1869. Although Grant waited until Oc- Page TKrti tober 8 to make his proclamation, in contrast to President Roosevelt's August announcement, no one beefed. The proclamation got only one sentence in small type under the "domestic intelligence" heading in Harper's Weekly. From 1821, the date of the first Thanksgiving, until Grant's time, the holiday had been celebrated In eight of the 12 months. Political affiliations apparently had nothing to do with the decisions on Thanksgiving 1 celebrations in the 48 states this did they? POLITICAL LINES.

Five Republican governors decided to observe President Roosevelt's Thanksgiving In their states, but 12 held to the old date. Seventeen Democrats chose the new date, 11 the old. Nearly all the governors said they wouli proclaim November 12 Instead of November 28 next year, when difficulties in advancing the date could be eliminated. Democratic Gov. Hugh White of Mississippi chose November 23 this year, but state law made the last Thursday a legal holiday also.

Re- DUblican Gov. Ralph L. Carr, of Colorado followed the-majority of party in proclaiming November 30, but state law required also that the President's day be observed. 2nd Drama for Children Soon The children of Einporin vicinity again are to have a dramatic treat Friday of this week when the second of a series of three plays by the Clare Tree Major Children's theater of New York will be presented in the Junior High school auditorium.
