Today's America is a broad land, a rich land, secure and safe and strong That earlier America was ;v tiny one, . hemmed in by 'great foes, a wee colony planted between wilderness and ocean, one which might Mirvivc and might not. Thc contrast is iis striking as any in history. , And yet there is more similarity ,lhan you might think between the two Thanksgivings. There should be a great deal of similarity between the spiritual attitudes. The tiny Massachusetts Bay colony was retaining devout and heartfelt thanks for the meic fact of survival. Ahead of it \veic uncoun(lefd prob- ' lems, some of them very great; but just back of it lay the greater fact of escape. The clangeis of hunger, destitution, and-cold had been beaten.down, the great menace of the Indians had been held at arm's length. Whatever might happen in the future, thc colonists at least knew lhat their settlement was not to go the way of that earlier, tragic one on Roanoke Island in Virginia. So theie was lhat sense of deliver- 'anee. There was enough to cat, there were houses to live in, there was assurance that all they ; had worked for and, hoped for would not "be snatched' , from "them before, they fiad eVeti a .fair chance to taste it. And fiom that sense of deliverance came a great upsurge of thanksgiving, of gratefulness to Providence for an escape from dire peiils. Jt is not hard to see the parallel be•- • tween that and the situation today. No Ameiican needs to be reminded - <that we have come through a time of ""great difficulty and danger. Our insti- ,"",tutions'have been tested to the utmost. ^The age-old dangeis of hunger and v - s cold have been with us; with them • ./we, have had. that utterly terrifying i feeling that nothing was secure, that ; some sort of lasting darkness might bo -ready to descend on our fair land, , bringing chaos and confusion to us all. Somehow, we got through that bad time. We may not know, any jnoro _ than those early Pilgrims Imesv, just " how we did il, but we do know that OUT OUR WAY it 'U, nl last behind us. The sky is j .lightening, our institutions are secure, 1 \\e can look ahead with hope again. \Great problems remain for us, but we can face them with lull faith that it is our -destiny to meet and solve great problems. 'Should not we today feel that de- vout''sense of thankfulness, as our ancestors fell it three centuries ago? Have we nol, in truth, as much lo be thankful for as they? Can we not, today, express our sin- cere''gratitude to Divine Providence— and,,having done so, await Ihc future with thc • confidence that was implicit in the lirst Thanksgiving? —Bruce Cation. WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 193(5 : Wliy Not Close Early Judging by the way (he first batch of tickets for thc Blytheville-Columb'tis game was snapped up, Main alrecl will take on u forlorn and deserted aspect ,lale Friday afternoon. /Which leads us to wonder if it wouldn't be just as well for Blylhc- villo stores to close their doors an hour or so before the usual lime that afternoon—-say at 5 o'clock—and thus give thc boss "and/the employes plenty of time to get to Crump stadium before the opening whistle. That would give those who want lo go by train lime enough to catch the proposed special —if it materialises—and it would eliminate all need for excessively fast driving by those who go by automobile. With most of the cuslomcrK in Memphis anyway it would not result in the loss-of many sales. .Exit Tugwell Ills, 'they' said, \vns the guiding hand nL Washington.

' Promising the artist that the would "only look In for a mtnule nnd then meet Mike upon his ar rival on the 10 o'clock train fron another evening assignment, si: brought McDougall Into the auditorium as v/ork began on Ihc second act. Dorolhy Osboni, finished with the first acl and having no more lo do until Ihc third, had come off the slagc and was passing the door on her way to a scat when thc hvo entered. ,1 McDougallj was introduced to her in Ihc whispers made necessary by the aclion on -tho'.'stagc, nncl Dorolhy had stalled lo-movc on when Mrs. Charles Ilorton approached on liploe wilh a summons for Joan from Ihc chairman of the costume committee'for the play, who was scaled across the hall. ••'* "I'll be back in a moment,' 1 she promised.

What hod •uised her mood? Now she was laying a part; then she had been creel f.

"But how silly of Marcia," said Joiolhy Osborn, "tci fly out lo ;hicago aflcr him!" "Well, my dear," said Mrs. Hor- oii from thc pinnacle of hei greater experience, "a \voman does some funny things when she's ii love witli a man." "I Ihink I could give him! up, under the circumstances," Dorothy remarked. Joan, returning, interrupted thc flow of information to McDougall's a is. "There's a lot of people I want you to meet," she told him. "Do you mind sticking around just a while longer? It isn'l train time yet." At the end of Ihe second acl, however, Mrs. Henderson, Ihe di- rcclor, announced lhat that would be all for Ihe evening. She announced further a blanket invitation lo the Stagecraft Guild membership to attend a Christmas afternoon reception al her home, and Ihcn thc ptyycrs, Ihe scattering of commillee members anc mere idlers trooped out. * o 4 AS usual, a parly was made up for a hamburger and coffee call at the Dog Wagon. Joan thoughtfully instructed the taxi drivers al Ihe station to direct Mike, upon his arrival, across NIC .street to the restaurant—"Tel him it's his wife, if he wants to I know who the lady is that's asking 'or him"—and then pilolcd Me Dongall lo a place among Ihe crowd lhat was giving its unvar'y- continued Joan, "flings and Ihlngs. Garcia Canflcld—there she is, two seats down; hi, Marcia!—lost a wauliful ring thai silo wouldn't I lave parted with ..." She rallied on, but McDougult, unheeding, was struck by (he expression on Morcia's face as Joan >poke. A ring that she couldn't >ear to part with; a man whom ;he couldn't give up! Tony served courteously' and ifllcIetvUy, but as lie leaned against the cash register and watched the ;roup cal, something of his old feeling of pride and affection was jonc. Ho had nol ceased lo bo troubled by the problem of returning the loot which lie had found in his brother's home—he had not ceased lo be troubled because the problem still had no solution. As Ihc crowd started, out he responded absently to their goodbys and pleasantries. Someone said, "Have you done your Chrislma'.i shopping yet, Tony? Betler mail 1 lat package lo your girl right .vay." Tony, making change, grasped .| the solution to his problem', lail the package! Why hadn't lie bought of it before? Well, per- ! aps he had, but if so he had dis- ' nissed it—dismissed it because he | ould not go into Ihc local post- dice and send a package to tho olicc without Hie certainly of the j ncident and his identity being re- ' narked. • * * * >HIL1P CANFIELD returned from Florida for Christmas, nil even.
