Lima Correspondent Bibls Commf THANKS AT THANKSGIVING Thanksgiving Day is set aside for rest and the giving of thanks. It is at the time of year when all the toils of planting, raising and normally the harvesting of crops are behind us. While the corn is, for the most part- still in the fields and the flow of business activity is somewhat stifled, it behooves us to look beyond our personal problems and give thanks. We have behind us several years of prosperity and material goodness for which we should be exceedingly thankful. We live in a nation at peace. We live in one of the most beautiful areas of the world. We JUye among the best people in the world. We have our friends, our churches- our schools. All these among many intangibles such as love of our fellow man, our families, our experiences and our free pathways into a future full of promise. ^f; In Psalm 103 we find the words that tell us to "Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits .... Who crowneth thee with loving-kindness and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's .... the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear Him To such as keep His covenant, to those that remember His commandments to do them." So, we must open our minds to see that Thanksgiving is much more than a family fet-together and the consuming of much good food. Therefore, we must open our hearts to whatever it might mean to each one individually, and to what it must mean to all of us, in our community, state and nation. ACTIVITY ON MAIN STREET It was a pleasant surprise for Mr. and Mrs. Editor to visit the new Fayette Variety Store Saturday evening, | now operated by Mr. and Mrs. Bob Lewis. A. Whole new buzz of activity and promotion per- surance and stflA have the meates the atmosphere as F ayette and area citizens visit ... , there in numbers. Fayette certainly wants to welcome Protection you can get, Mr. anl Mrs. Lewis and their two sons to Fayette. We are if so it will pay you to see happy with the spirit they have brought with them. We „ c _ feel it will be a healthy addition to the movement to re- 603 Madison bt., f ayette kindle that old business spirit and aggressiveness that or phone Blue 229 and he first made Fayette a shopping center. ... .. Any merchant has within his store the power to Wllt ca " on you ' bring customers to town. We think the activity of Mr. arid Mrs. Lewis in the variety store will serve to bring | Fayette many customers. Troubled V/or! J Should Take C113 From This Prophet •pVEN prophets had their mo- mcnts of depression. A: times their words come like trumpet calls from a mountain top. But at other times, they were as souls in the darkness of the night, full of lamentation and crying for the dawn. Hnbakkuk appears to us in this depressed mood. He comes before us with a burden. It is a burden of a world of violence from which God seems to have departed. It is the sort of world out of which some modern prophet in Czechoslovakia or Hungary might have uttered a cry of doubt or despair. He is appalled at the evil he sees around him, at the injustice, the strife and cruelty and the disregard of law and judgment. He sees the power of the Chal­ deans, which he describes in vivid, swift-moving phrases. He says they bring punishment upon Israel for their sins. But he reflects that these hosts of violence tiro even mora sinful. It is too shallow find unsatisfactory a view to think of them pa executing God's Judgment, In his bewilderment and doubt Hnbakkuk cries out for God, "Art Thou not from everlasting, O Lord, my God, mine Holy One?" But Habakkuk does not only cry. He does what every man assailed with doubt ought to do. He puts himself jn the way of finding an answer, H« pictures himself in this world of evil ond conflict us ascending a tower and standing his watch. Here he will wait to see and hear. Thu?, wailing, hi;doubt turns to faith as lie sec. q vision. The judgments nf God njay be deferred, but they are jure.

We doubt that there is a college in the entire nation -where football is any more amateur, any more sport for sport's sake. We give full credit for this good wholesome situation to ONE man. Admirable, un-pre- fenfious "Doc" Dormnn, with his •piciuresque .cap firmly on his good sound head. Sometimes we tremble a little, with apprehension, as to how quickly this good wholesome football at UIU for the love-o f-the-game, may change, after that eventual day, when venerable "Doc" has coached his final game. We can and should hope that day is considerably In the future. • • • • Mamma and daddy were getting groomed and dressed their very best, to attend a wedding.

"Big time" college football is BIG BUSINESS. To call it ama,- teur athjetics is hypocrisy pf the highest degree. We allege there ape schools where football re- pruitirig is baited with convertibles, speedboats, under-the table spending money, even 8emi> professional "call-girls".
