As we paused to give thanks last week on our traditional Thanksgiving Day, we were particularly impressed by an advertisement in support of the Victory Loan which enumerated several reasons why we in America should be thankful. Eight of these reasons were: ' , L "Without harm or hindrance, we have in-the. United States what the Pilgrim Fathers sought, "Freedom to Worship God." . • . .; 2. .Our citizens and those "within our gates" are bountifully fed, warmly clothed, and profitably employed/ 3. Invaders never set foot on America's sacred soil. 4. n With the exception of the wanton outrages at Pearl Harbor and' Manila, none of our beautiful cities was ravaged or destroyed by enemy might. 5. Neither bombs nor shells marred our broad landscapes or towering forests. 6. Old Glory floats freely, honorably and bravely wherever the sun shines. 7. Our business and industrial integrity and credit cannot be assailed. 8. Our government tempers justice with mercy to ease alien suffering. If each of these reasons isn't enough to put the Victory Loan Drive over the top by itself, there is something wrong with the old Yankee spirit. We don't think there's anything wrong. The drive will go over the top—but only with your help. How about doing your share? From the Old West There's quality and beauty in these billfolds and belts by TexTan of Yoakum, Texas.
