F 1S is for thanksgiving. , „ .. , Our text ihfgM be the speech a public man made recently while talking about last year's drouth and this y«f a wonderful harvest. He said this: "The test of any people » whether they cah be grateful. Without gratitude they never can be happy, of prosperous, or strong." A AVhdle sermon is in that text. . •Let us loo kat Thanksgiving day, 1931, not through our own eyes which.'see a land with less money and less luxury than it once had, but through the eyes of the less favored oi Earth's chil'dren-~eyes that never have seen money; and worse, eyes that beseech for the things we already have while we are drying for money the eyes of men Crushed under tyranny; the eyes of women, perhaps beautiful, but bedraggled and hopeless under the heavy hand of predatory poverty; and the crying eyes of hungry little children. ; ; Let us look at a land of war, whilst we at home livei in a land of peace. And pray God for strength to put away that awful and cowardly wish that Americans sometimes have voiced—wish for a foreign war to bring back prosperity at Let us look at the world—and thank God for the U. S. A. For on this wide, wide earth our country is just a very small patch. But it's the garden-spot of the world. . Let us have gratitude for our forefathers. Let us be thankful for ever leader we esteem today. Let us remember our tradition. Let us revere the institutions that command us to carry on in the name of that civilization which rescued us from the very things we abhor in other places of the W ° Without gratitude for leaders, ho country has leader- S 1P- Without gratitude for honesty and courage, no country has law and order. , .. Without gratitude for loyalty and patriotism, one shall have neither friends nor country. • Without gratitude to God Almighty for a bountiful hai- vest, another year the people will starve—again. Where they envy all the rich,,there is no wealth. Where none obey, all are miserable. Ten thousand years of Pagan and Christian history testify to but one truth: The proud man always has iallen; and the ungrateful, while cursing the wreck of his past mis- doi/gs, is presently seized by a worse disaster. Ancient Greece had a proverb: Be not too successful— lest the gods grow jealous. America has fallen. A proud 'nation, humbled by a Spirit intertwined among the earthly things America foolishly imagined she had mastered. , But America has risen, contrite of spirit, hopeful for the future—and grateful, this Thanksgiving'day, to be alive and with a shining life just ahead.—W. ; • Pennsylvania Legionnaires sent n piece of coal as a Irofchy to California. They didn't mean anything. Drinkers, says & headline, pay one- fifth of Britain's taxes. Well, over there It's "Me> ale, the gang's all here." Bald men are stampeding a Chicago doctor who has discovered how to grow hair. Evidently all hnir-mincled. South Carolina in 1787 passed n law classing actors as vagrants. Must have foreseen this depression. If the first quarrel is the key to married life, theres a catch in It somewhere. , Do You TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO- < C. N. Trimble, of Fulton, was in the city Sunday. Mr. and Mrs. R. L. Pritchard left this morning for New Orleans. Mike Thompson was down from Washington Monday. Mr. arid Mrs. Orrie Reed returned Sunday from a three week's visit to Mineral Wells, Tex.

Sid McMath went to Arkadelphia to see the football game between Henderson-Brown and Ouachita Thanksgiving day. , Mrs. Arch Moore and daughter, accompanied by several girl friends, motored to Prescott yesterday afternoon for the football game. ) Robert McAdams of this city, and Miss Jennit Ferguson, of Singer were married at the home of -Justice W. L. Jarmon, near B'mger last Saturday night, Justice Harmon officiating. The groom is ,the- son of the late Frai|ik McAdams. The'bride is the daughter of Frank Ferguson.

Whitney, J. J. Robinson and others. Several improvements to the tracks are being made. The Louisiana derby will be one of the features of the meet. Baker's Anti-War Plan D. BAKER'S speech at Boston urging passage by ,, Congress of the Capper resolution calls attention to one -of the simplest and most promising anti-war measures yet K'i proposed. , '/* The Capper resolution would bind the United States not l-f-to- be a market for finance, industrial goods, farm products b or munitions for any nation which went to war in violation ct previous agreement to arbitrate international troubles. Its advantages are obvious. Many nations would be rent to enter a war if they knew that American markets banking houses would be closed to them. Furthermore, ! a war did get statred there would be much less chance for je United States to get involved through commercial and ^financial ties with one of the combatants . Mr. Baker believes that adoption of such a policy by 'the United States would prevent large-scale wars. The plan „' .feat least worth a trial, T , When Youngsters Drive O J>JE of the most disturbing traffic accidents of the season Is that recently recorded in Kansas City, where an auto driven by a 14-year-old boy knocked down and killed a pedes- 'trian at a street intersection. No youngster of 14, of course, or of an age anywhere iear 14, should ever be permitted to drive an automobile on ny public street. Jn this case, to be sure, the lad is said to have been driving without his parents' consent; but that fact only adds to the weight of the object lesson. ' Parents must not only keep their children ' out of the driver's seat. They must see to it, very rigidly, that the ruling is obeyed. When a child of that age does drive, and gets iwolved in an accident, the major part of the responsibility rests on his father and mother. Keeping child-drivers off streets is primarily their job, not the police department s. L. C. Burr & Co. C. E. Romig, Manager Hope, Arkansa' Cold Weather Needs Robinson Crusoe Fiction A WRITER in a New York newspaper pointed out not long atro that Paniel Defoe's great book, "Robison Crusoe," was really a somewhat imaginative biography of a real person Alexander Selkirk, who was marooned on the lonely isle S Juan Fernandez in 1704; and this fact, somehow, seems to tie in with the current vogue for fjctiomzed biographies 'The fictionised biography is ordinarily something of a mesa, Its writer undertakes to present, not only the actions and career of an historical personage, but also his hidden fights and motives; and the result, general y, is a curious hybrid that is neither honest biography nor forthright fiction. But Defoe, attempting precisely the same thing, produced a masterpiece. It proves, perhaps, that the form m which I wrtte?«& Ws work matters not at all-it only the writer himself is a genius, HAVE"YOU" SEEN Ihe new Coats for Ladies in iizes 14-16-18-20, made of Lace Woven Romba cloth at $14.90 MOLESKIN PANTS For Men Who expect hard wear und warmth.
