my VEINS" Concert l *& , JM^hMMfa-a^^a-Jii^c^ _.-.^_.,-. ^^.- ^ M . .^ . w «M American holiday there if none more typically American than Thanksgiving, it is a legacy of the Pilgrim fatheri, in 1«21 after the first harvest, Governor Bradford & MfMichuaetti declared a day of general thanksgiving at Plymouth The colonists went out Into the forest and shot wild turkeys in preparation for a feast. Friendly Indiana heard of tile celebration and came to the settlement bearing deer, Together the colonists and the Indiana aat down to give thanks for the harvest. Twenty.three years later the governor of the Duteh colony of New York Issued a thanksalvlnf proclamation, Our ing the American Revolution, Congrots annually recommended a day be set aside as an observance off national thanksgiving. Then In 17W President George Washington issued a proclamation appointing November 26, 17tt, as a day for the whole country to give thanks for the adoption of the constitution. This was the first Thanksgiving proclamation Issued by the president. • Thereafter it was observed irregularly until 1958 when proclamations appointing a special day for thanksgiving were issued by governors of the various states. As a national religious festival celebrated on the same day throughout the country, Thanksgiving Day officially dates from 1863. The family, the Church and the Nation owe their very existence to God. Each should occasionally call its members together to thank the bountiful and provident God for blessings received. Because we are at once members of a family, of a Church and of a Nation, we might on Thanksgiving Day this year express to Almighty God our gratitude for the blessings which each of these institutions bring into our lives. November is the month of Farm-City observance. We need to get through to each other a message of understanding. We may think we are doing so but when we read in the face of good crop abundance that the Chicago consumer price index more than doubled the national increase and that the director of labor statistics in Chicago blamed much of the increase on new taxes and "higher cost of food following a poor growing season in the midwest," obviously we are not gettin gour message through so that farm and city know the facts and do not put the blame where it should not be. Farmers were asked to raise more to help avoid a world food crisis but the weather and international politics being what they were we came up with more grain than we could sell, or wanted to give away, to maintain the prices farmers expected. The world food crisis is still here but we are not getting at it in the right way. First of all we must realiie we cannot feed the world from here. We cannot raise that much and it would cost too much. And if we gave it away we demoralize the agriculture that should be developing in the countries where people are hungry. The USDA says that we could have surpluses of grain in the U. S. until 1980. And if we cannot sell it or give it away and people are hungry in our world what is the answer. Seems like it is the right time for citizens of town and country to sit down together to work out ways to increase export markets, markets with less bog down of quotas, allotments and regulations. Seems like it is the time to decide what and how much control of crop land is really necessary, whether or not there should be support prices at an average of market level for a time at least and give farmers freedom to decide how best to raise what crops are needed. We probably will hot lick the distribution problem in a hurry, but we will arrive at some solution of the problem and not blame one another for our difficulties. Perhaps together we can slow down the expansion of government and inflation. This is vital for the future.of our country. ' As I think more about stopping government spending measures, I feel we must do more than just that. We must as citizens get at rolling back the network of encroaching controls. Public involvement in decision making is imperative if we are not to be overwhelmed by the technological and social changes of our time. Computers are making decisions once made by humans, we face serious alternatives. Responsible choice depends upon our knowledgeable awareness, our public involvement. In this day of cybernetics and technology let us not drift into being a robot with government pushing the buttons to make us perform. Let's on this Thanksgiving Day, think back and thank the good God who directed our stalwart forefathers who created a government based on the theory that you and I have the God-given right and the ability to determine our own destiny. They, our forefathers, shaped a government, bound it with a constitution and said that its only function was to be a watchdog over man's freedom. • •. " • •Jamaey Russell Lowell once said when asked how long he thought our Republic would endure. "Our Republic will r*!2?? I? 119 a§ * ht P^P'* k ««P »•»• Meet of the men who founded it. .. . Yes, on this Thanksgiving Day 1987 we have much to be thankful for and we have a challenge to accept to preserve the freedom and the dignity and the pride of our United States of America. Then let all of us, whateve rour procession be .Doctor, lawyer, farmer, merchant, chief, whatever religion we profess, remember that we are Americans, thank God for mis and get together to preserve what we have. We have not yet turned into supermen or cyborgs (men-machine). We are still God's creatures. He will push our mechanism buttons if we ask Him and trust in Him. He will help us fen to life the dying flame of responsible citiienship. A citiienship that is net afraid of public involvement.
