O—O O O 0—o o—o—o We have committed the Golden Rule to memory. Let us now eommit it to life.—Edwin Markham, American poet. Editorial.. . The Reasons Are Timeless •THANKSGIVING, to coin a phrase, ain't what It used to b«. ' .} The Pilgrims stalked and shot their own tui-keys. Today, the center of attraction on the groaning board is prekilled, pre- plu'cked and prestuffed, if not precooked. It may even come In a Ifomogenized loaf which, like a record of excerpts from musical masterpieces, has "all the hard parts taken out." I A century ago on Thanksgiving, we are told, the custom Was to make an excursion into the country to visit one's grandparents. Today, grandma's house is as likely as not a high- eisg apartment building and the children ride an elevator, not ij| horse-drawn carriage, to get there. I •'• Half a century ago, the only holiday entertainment was what a family could provide for itself in the form of conversation and games and looking at pictures through the stereopticon. I^oday, television mass feeds our minds just as the modem food processing industry mass feeds our stomachs. No, Thanksgiving isn't what It used to be. It hasn't been for long time and it never will be again. ' I Yet it isn't Thanksgiving that has changed. America has <iiingei, and is changing, but the reasons each generation con- t^iies to celebrate this festvial are timeless and enduring. ; Thanksgiving is, as it always was even before it became an official holiday, the one day in the year wh^ Americans across the land pause from theli- daily work to gather within the bo«om of their own families simply to give thanks. ; To give thanks for many tilings. For big things—like a country that is free and prosperous and is still pursuing that greet eXR(e.riment called democracy. For little things—like a home, a fuU table, healthy kids and the wherewithal to maintain them. ; And because we give special thanks on this day, we ar« perhaps more aware than on axiy other day that there arc many, even in our own country, who have much less reason to be grateful; Our hearts go out to them, and like the Pilgrims who invited the Indians to the first Thanksgiving, we would share our happiness yidth them if we could. —America is changing, moi-e rapidly with every year . It pvtr ancestors from any previous period could come back to see tirhat America is like in 1966, they might feel they had arrived on fnbther planet. But one thing would tell them they were at home. Tliat one .thing is the living spirit of Thanksgiving. HOROSCOPE Comp uter Lands Fast Jet Fighters On Carriers i': ABOARD USS AIMERICA •j^AP) — The jet fighter-bomber touched down on the aircraft garner's landing deck, snagged ifif cable and screeched to a sudden stop — a noisy but perfect landing. The pilot had nothing to *) with it. The F4 combat plane was landed safely Monday on tlie America, the nation's newest flattop, by a complex system of rjidar and computers operated a control center deep jnside flje ship, I' The revolutionai-y, "Look ma, no hands" concept is being developed in a hurry by the Navy, seeking to reduce landing accidents at night and in foul weather during Southeast Asia operations. The system, expected to undergo final operational tests next spring, has a secondary purpose: to make it easier for carrier pilots to qualify for night flying and thus ease the growing shortage of carrier attack pilots in Viet Nam. Known as the All-Weather Carrier Landing System — ACLS — It works this way: As the pilot begins his ap- pi-oach to the can-ier, radar and computers provide precise data on the plane's position. This, along with data on the roll, pitch and yaw of the landing deck, is relayed to a computer tliat calculates the movement of the carrier and the desired position of the plane as it begins its descent and actually lands.

Today's highlight in history: On this date in 1774, the Minutemen were organized by an act of the provincial congress. On this date: In 1899, the American government extended its postage rates to Puerto Rico, Guam and the Philippines. In 1910, Romania signed the Ronie-Berlin-Tokyo pact. In 1942, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the bill authorizing the establishment of the "SP.4RS." the women's reserve of the Coast Guard. In 1943, the historic Battle of Tarawa came to a victorious conclusion. Ten years ago — Egypt was reported to be preparing to deport Jews in Egypt accused of being in collaboration with British, French and Israeli forces. Five years ago — An Argentine airlines jet airliner crashed after take-off from Sao Paolo, Brazil, killing all 52 persons aboard. One year ago — Communist North Viet Nam's President Ho Chi Minh reiterated his condition tor peace negotiations in the South Viet Nam war — the complete withdrawal of American ti'oops from Viet Nam. Letters To The Editor Dear Editor: I am not a resident of Mt. Vernon but I work here and have observed on November 11, and on previous holidays, that the Amercian flags which fly So proudly during the daylight hours are not taken down by sun down. I think that It is difficult to believe that the respect for the flag la taken so lightly by the supposedly patriotic organization that is responsible for dls- playing the flags. What true value is shown when the proud flags of the day light hours look so dismal still up In the dark? How can school teachers teach respect of the nation's flag? . . . How can boys in Viet Nam die for tills country represented by our Stars and Strips feel toward the disrespect? Part of all the ti-oubles in our times come from disrespect. . . older people are not respected by younger people. The nation's flag Is not respected by citizens in Mt. Vernon—to prove this did you have other complaints because the flag was still up and the sun down? One other holiday I complained to the local police and in one hour the flags were taken down. Constructive criticism is good —It makes people think—and we need more and more thinking people. Miss B.C.J. NEWPORT, R.I. (AP)-Thc Navy says it will transport clothing collected here for victims of the recent floods In Italy. A Navy spokesman said destroyers stationed in Newport would drop off the clothes on their regular cruises to the Mediten-anean. Mt. Veni,on Registei^News Dear Sirs: In tlie eyes of many a musical is music with a story which in more or Ises degree hangs together the assoi-ted tunes sung to the accompaniment orchestra by soloists, small and large ensembles of both male and female vintage. U'L ABNER, a terrific success by audience acceptance won recognition for tliose wlio were in the lights, but left some real successes almost um-ecognized. To be sure big rounds of applause were given to tlie cast of almost 40 and the chorus. At cui> tain call time the students of the cast, chorus, dancers, and orchestra presented tokens to Miss Pettlt, Mr. Smith and Mr. Beckmeyer. Due to his illness, Mr. Miller the dramatics director was not in attendance but his stage crew (people responsible for the setting of the scenes and props) were brought out for a duly deserved applause. Mr. Mike Hindman, recently added member to the faculty, at Mr. Miller's request assisted in the behind the scenes operation. This year's show had more and better scenery than previous shows because of the addition of a number ot additional back drops and more important because of the increased efforts of art students under the direction of Mrs. A. Biagi and her able assistant (student teacher) Miss CHeveland who is on the high school staff this semester as a pait of her college credit work towai'd a dc- gi-ee. Many favorable comments have been made in pasy years but the enthusiasm for this year's sets was outstanding. This years cooperation from both faculty and students alike was perhaps the greatest in the 24 year history of the ti'aditional operetta. Did Mt. Vernon like LI'L ABNER? The answer to I this can only be ix)sitively affirmative. It was different, but great. W.H. Beckmeyer Director of Music, Mt. Vernon Township High School SHOP EARLY MAIL EARLY use ZIP CODE World News By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SEOUL, South Korea (AP) The U,N, Command today accused North Korea of firing at three South Korean navy patrol boats and of shooting at an unarmed training plane that strayed over the demilitarized zone.

At a meeting today oE the joint Military Armistice Commission secretaries at Panmun- jom, the U,N, Command admitted a light unarmed plane on a routine ti-aining mission Nov. 18 had inadvertently flown over the 4,000-yard wide truce zone. U.S. Ai-my Col, George F, Charlton, the U.N. Coninwnd secretary, said the pilot lost liis bearings. Charlton's remarks indicated the plane was not hit.
