TWELVE THE PANTAGRAPn, TnTRSDAY, NOV. 26, Ml!. Events of the Day in Normal What Is Significance Of Thanksgiving 1942? ISNU Students, Faculty Members Give Opinions Tha folloivina story was compiled by Jennie Dix, ISSV sophomore irom Chi-cgqo and other journalism students at ISNU. Editor. Students and faculty members cf Illinois State Normal university paused today to count their bless ings as they celebrated the first wartime Thanksgiving in years liere are some of their opinions ct what Thanksgiving 1942 means- President It. W. Fair child "Thanksgiving in 1942 should mean an opportunity to serve our country in many and various ways in order that we may have truly American Thanksgivings in the future. It should mean an op portunity to count and re-count our blessings and be willing to sacrifice for their continuance. It Ehould also give an opportunity to participate in some manner in a world-wide struggle that should start a 'sick' world on the road to recovery." Dean Anna Keaton: "Thanksgiving means to me this year a time not for feasting but of rededi-cation. I am deeply grateful for a way of life, and for the strength cf a people who believe in it. 1 am grateful that every one of us, not just the strong and the great, is essential to cur nation and the ideals it represents, and that not cne of us dares waste the human power that is in us. I pray that each one of us may see clearly the way we can serve best, and that we may dedicate ourselves sin cerely to the ob we are doing, whatever it may be." Dr. Herbert Hiett: "For us this Thanksgiving is more than the usual pious exercise. Last year we willed to be thankful, knowing that we ought to feel gratitude, but not overflowing with any deep emotion. Since then we have had borne in cn us what living could be in an unfree America. So now we give thanks not alone for the good we have had but more for the clearer awareness without which we can never really possess try good." Dr. Floyd Goodier (Education department): "I am thankful for the general recognition that education continues to receive during these war-dominated days I appreciate the federal program which makes it possible for men at ISNU to continue their uni versity courses and at the same time prepare for a high type of service as officers in the armed forces. Dr. Florence E. Teager (English department): "Thanksgiving is a holiday peculiarly ours. On the day when it came into being, the New England colonist3 ex pressed gratitude not alone for bundance of food finally theirs. but rather for the possibilities of strength from that food. strength that would enable them to work even harder at the grim tasks ahead. Our Pilgrim Fathers had no illusions that man lives by bread alone, or more to the point, by bread for himself clone. Often, in the intervening years, we have accepted the abundance but not the obligation. This year, in a very special way. Thanksgiving again means to us, what it did to our forefathers. The great plenty we still have in our country, as contrasted with the dearth in many occupied countries. impels us to gratitude, not for our sulliciency, but for the strength from this ample supply to wor harder so that all countries may eventually share in the real bread of life our ancestors struggled for freedom for all." which I was able to ctlebrate e day, I will sit at my Thanks giving table discussinn the ques tion of our inductions into the Wedne$Jay afternoon to almost all of the students who"" Orin Bumgardner, (sophomore in commerce): "Thanksgiving al ways brings to mind a turkey dinner, a revival of old home-town courtships, and a pleasurable vacation with no studying, despite any resolutions on the sub ject. However, Thanksgiving, 1942, has an additional meaning one of vastly greater significance. We are at war. This year, it should bring a deeper appreciation of our democratic way of life. Thanks is due from us, as students, for the opportunity we have for gaining an education. This' Thanksgiving should mean that our generation resolve to keep its head clear and its vision straight, in order to do its part to win the war, and in order to work toward the greater talk of directing the peace follow ing. On Nov. 26, let everyone pause to offer a prayer that vie tory may come swiftly, and that our way of life may be indeed lasting." Bertha Ilarper (sophomore in physical science): "Thanksgiving in 1942 should take on an added significance especially to the youth of America. Today more than an ether time in history we should be thankful we live in America, land blessed with opportunities, for to U9 at this moment comes the most promising opportunity of blinded world s history an oppor tunity to make men free. W should thank God that we can still battle for the rights of men, still band together to lift the blight of slavery from their heads. By our united and joint determi nation with those to whom history has denied this chance, we can teach ourselves the most moving lesson that democracy can offer men everywhere are more closely bound by their common hopes and abilities than they can ever be divided by their differ ences." Charles Frocasky (sophomore in music): "This Thanksgiving more than a holiday which has for years been the symbol of a vaca tion for me.

Dean K. II. Mnkin: "As college men and women approach the Thanksgiving season of 1942. I am convinced of two of the thoughts which are uppermost in their Thanksgiving expression: First, that they are privileged to live in a country whose government makes possible democratic living; second, that this philosophy cf government provides for them unparalleled opportunities f o 1 education even in time of war. I am sure, too, that with thoughts of these privileges comes to each college student an abiding sense of responsibility" Dr. II.
