New«pap«r Publl«h«r» A»«'n WEDNESDAY, NOV. 23, 1949 Thanksgiving Day Thanksgiving is for those resolute souls who. In a world of woe, struggle against adverse circumstances and toil for the common weal. Realizing that life is a battle upstream, they are grateful for any gains made. That was the original concept of Thanksgiving Day. It has never changed. Those whose lives are easy or who Uve selfishly off the efforts of others have nothing for which to be thankful. Existence Is a series of contrasts, the good with the bad, and those who do not battle evil and adversity have no real knowledge of goodness and prosperity. They have no apprcciativeness of Providence, no idea of the forces which support man's puny efforts. The Pilgrims were people who turned their~backs upon a measurable security for the sake of conscience. They had homes in an old and ordered world but desired a strengthening of the soul through freedom of worship. For this they braved the rigors of a wilderness, gathering fortitude through direct intercession with Heaven. Their cause was just and they had the strength of a thousand men. For many years their material fortune was • outrgeous but they clung to their hard-won way of life, placing carnal comforts second to food for the soul. Their thanks welled up out of hearts filled with zeal for a cause. What America needs today is faith in its way of life, gratitude for the great gains made and subscription to causes for improvement. Americans of today h.-ivc everything the Pilgrims Cj ild have wanted, and much b'<s!d»::. Thanksgiving Day is for those who battlo for justice and mercy and walk humbly with their God. Another Wehrmacht? Caution seems to have no place in the Soviet lexicon when it comes to harnessing German militarism to the communist drive for all of Europe. The latest and most dangerous move in that direction has been made by the communist East German Republic which now encourages former German army officers -to return to "public service." It was for political effect, to be sure, that the Soviet satellite in Eastern Germany voted full amnesty. Including the gesture to the militarists, for all former nazis with but few exceptions. Such apparent magnanimity could not help but embarrass the West German Republic. But in practical effect, nothing could be more reckless than to i-cinwta!! the traditional and professional officer canto of Germany. The so-calied "people's police" of Eastern Germany could well be just another name for the Reichswehr of the Weimar Republic, which quickly became the Wehrmacht of Adolf Hitler. A Farmer Bpeake Out Few living Americans can speak on farming with the authority and clarity of Louia Bromfield, distinguished author and leading agriculturist in his own right. Bromf ield's incisivencss of thought and richness of. delight his audiences as he appeals for a re- uppralsal of agriculture's role in the national and world economy. His major premise is that the soil is one of the immutable values in'the society of man. It is real wealth, he avers. Money is but a measure of worldly goods, subject to the vagaries of time and place. The soil, he charges, has been treated badly. Through wasteful farming methods in the country's early years and conservation practices that at times have been too little and too late, it is being allowed to run down the drain. And government subsidies, in Bromfield's view, are not helping matters because they serve to perpetuate inefficiency and sub-marginal productivity. But despite the sharpness of his indictment, Bromfield does not despair. Agriculture's salvation, lie states, lies In the widest adoption of scientific methods, bringing in their wake heightened productivity and conservation standards. He is hopeful that youth agricultural organizations may lead the way to modern farming. Bromfield gves equal emphasis ,to the need of machine-age America's rediscovery of agriculture as a co-partner with industry in the nation's economy. Farming and farm-affiliated industries, he points out, support more than half the country's population. The economic well-being of 95 percent of U. S. small towns is rooted directly to the soil. Talk of socialized medicine is dying down. Perhaps the big apple crop is canceling out the alleged need of it. In declaring a truce in the coal strike John L. Lewis said ho WON acting in the public interest, but he resolutely refuses to say where fie picket up that phrase. After eight government bureaus were consolidated into one. it was found to have 140 more em- ployes than the original eight. There's something about Washington arithmetic that IH actually fascinating. . . «. Do You Remember?

Christmas though gaining on us day by day, Is HUM more than »lx woek» nway, In the meantime, them Is Thanksgiving. Perhaps you haven't thought much about It yet But MB time to be making plans for the day, and to be thinking about menus. The welcome word from the Department of Agriculture is that Thanksgiving dinners will probably be cheaper thin year than last. In 1948, as either your pocketbook or your stomach may remember, the crop of turkeys won unusually small. As a result, you cither paid a proportionately high price or settled for a small bird. This year the supply lg nearly 30 per cent larger. That In Itaelf Is occasion for thanksgiving. Turkeys are practically synonymous with Thankngiving, but they are never oaten alone. The fixings too. are expected to be generally lower-priced this year. The cranberry crop is bigger than 1948's. There is un ample supply of vegetables at prices that compare well with those of a year ago. And mincemeat ingredients are cheaper, so the traditional afterpiece will offer no oarticular problem to harassed housewives. We will do well to remember that there should be more to the Thanksgiving holiday than just ovcr-cut- ing, and suffering for It. That Is, of course, the one holiday in the calendar that stems from New England's own history. We in this region should be particularly aware of its full significance. Bountiful crops In the perilous days of three and a quarter centuries ago meant the difference between life and death. Today bumper crops are a less vital matter. But, as the budget-minded citizen Is well aware they are still something to be sincerely thankful for.
