In the Mayflower Compact, we see the early flowering of democracy in America. As we observe Thanksgiving Day- yet another legacy from our Pilgrim forefathers~we can indeed be thankful for our proud heritage, for our American way of life, for freedom and its blessings. • • •.

It is "organized in terms-of several basic social science concepts," he added.
