Thanksgiving Day is one of (he bes gifts of the Pilgrim Fathers to th people of this continent. The carlic jbservancc of a harvest Thanksgivin n America was at Plymouth in 1621 The festival, which at its inception en tirely religious in character, has bco observed more or less regularly fror that time onward.

HOPE STAR; HOPE, ARKANSAS PAGE THREE Delay of War Seen Costly to Germany Odds Increase Against Hitler As Long As He Waits My PRESTON CiROVER WASHINGTON -Strange as it may com, Ilic In test peace maneuvers by Holland's queen and Belgium's king re traced by many diplomatic mindfi lr«i(?h( bnck (o the decision at the American Congress to repeal the arms iinbargo. Here's the way they figure it out: The rcpcii! of the embargo eventual-j y will put at the disposal of the ^ranco-Brilish Allies the arms output f American industry, including nlr- ilnncs. Some experts in the industrial and military fields suggest that American production can supply one-four of tlic Allied military equipment if the war continues for more than a year. Thai 'lie-fins the odds against German success in a long-term war arc heavily ncroascd by the new American ncu- Iridity law. Of course, other factors besides the American aims embargo have given Hitler Unit—and cause—to delay getting into action. But the embargo under Die neutrality «ct has been an important one. The lifting of the embargo under the new neutrality act now makes delay more and more cost- Curd of Thanks We wish to take this method of expressing our sincere appreciation to our many friends and neighbors for the kindnesses, shown us during our recent bcrciivcniont.

Blackboard Is to Be White And Science Discovers Lead in Schoolroom's Colored Chalk My HOWARD W. BLAKESLEE AP Science Editor MADISON, Wis. — Every time science changes an old custom, the medical profession has to look for queer health hazards. The new vogue of colored black- wards is the latest example as told n the American Journal of Public 'Icalfh hy Harold W. Ruf and William £, Fluck, of Wisconsin state board of licalth. In general scientists have reported that writing-boards of light color, with dark chalks, arc about twice ns easy on the eye as the timc-lionorccl blackboards with white chalk. The Wisconsin health authorities found that some of the colored chalks contain lead. Further that chalk dust Irani these colored crayons floated through the school room. The U. S. Public Health Service lias ruled that more than 1.5 milligrams of lead per cubic meter o: air is hazardous. The crayons ii some cases put as much as 5,9 milligrams of lend in chalk 'dust in the air, The report pointed out that not all colored crayons contain lead, and stated that this poisonous metal can be eliminated from those colors in which it is used. • HIGHLIGHTS FROM LATEST BOOKS William Allen While's "The Chang- ng West" (M;icmil)an; $1.50) remains human, interesting little book despite its being tagged "an economic .heory about our golden age." Mr. White traces the economic history of he west from the periods when in_ creasing land values brought wealth o almost anybody up to now—when ho frontier has disappeared but men can still live a good life and enjoy .he workings of democracy. The fol- owing excerpt is one of Mr. White's conclusions: Let me reiterate that what man did with (hat fabulous increase in wealth hat came with the settlement of the west, man can do now as he plunges 'nlo the new car. But he must carry n his heart the two tilings that made .he wilderness blossom as the rose; first, a neighborly faith in the de- con cy of man; second, a never falter- (comes from mechanical power shall ing vision of a better World. Thai vision the pioneers had—even the worst of them. That vision always must shine in the depths of man's heart if he moves on to those broadening liberties that follow expanding duties, it is Ihe essence of democracy. Our way of life here on thi.s continent today wilh all its obvious inequities ,with its many crul shortcomings, slill is Ihc Utopia Dial glow. cd in the heart of the pioneers. We have conquered much along our westward march during the century and a half—much of oppression, something of greed, a lot of foolish or wicked inequalities. But these conquests were on the battlefield within man's expanding spirit. It was the democratic process—conflicting forces in the hulian heart reaching a final equilibrium in approximate justice. . America is ready for the ncxl forward slep, when the increment that replace the surplus of wealth that rose from the settlement of the west. But progress today is only possible if into the heart of our man of 10 talents, into the heart of the' boss. . . can conic that first amazing word of the young preacher on the Mount who opened his discourse with that passionate exhortation to hunmanity across the centuries, '-'Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven!"

With repeal therefore every day's lelay in a final conclusion of the war favors the Allies. It gives the British more time to train and develop their iirfantry forces. It gives the French more time to buy more American planes. That will] cut clown Germany's advantage in the air. With close to 14,000 first line planes, the Germans now have a probable air .superiority of l'/2 to one. Further entering the picture is the evident willingness—until now—of the Germans to give the western front n "breathing spell" in the wake of Hitler's strong peace offensive last month. Law Changes Everything Wilhelmlna land Leopold must look upon that breathing spell as a German maneuver to demonstrate their earnest desire for peace—a demonstration, as it were, of good faith with nothing up the sleeve. But now, with the neutrality law a fact, and great reservoirs of supply ready over here for the Allies, that demonstration is no longer of any value to the German high command. It must act in the future against the background of the neutrality law, knowing full well the advantage that act gives to the Allies in a long term war. Therefore, the Dutch and Belgian monarch cannot sec in the new neutrality law a definite spur to the German high command to act soon— while they still have plenty of supplies at home untouched by the British blockade, plus a modicum of military advantage in the air and on the ground. Knowing the cold, calculating desperation that has motivated the German high command in previous wars, the Dutch and the Belgians cannot but see in their own countries the logical battlefields of today—just as they always have been the logical battlefields when England was involved in a European war. Natural Battlegrounds Aix-La-Chapellc (now Aachen) loom large in the history books. Beligum was the scene of the final military drama of Napoleon's career. Belgium and Holland are the wedges between European powers and the British forces. They are natural battlegrounds because they have no high-ground barriers to invasion. Before hostilities officially began, these neutrals once before offered (heir good offices for pence. They did what they could in the interests of humanity. Now, most diplomats feel they are acting solely in desperation to protect their own people—which, after all, is their first concern. It's in Belgium's Flanders fields that the poppies grow—and in Belgium where the graves of thousands upon thousands of peace-loving Belgians hear witness to the ironic geographical fate that has made Belgium and Holland the scene of Europe's decisive battles through the centuries. It is also ironic that a nation 3,000 miles across the Atlantic should make a decision which brings tiny Belgium and Holland back into the limelight as apostles of peace—for their own security.
