Like the early Puritan (typified above) modern Americans still keep In spirit the Thanksgiving observance started by Pilgrim fathers and made official by President Abraham Lincoln. The occasion is still a time to count our blessings. Likewise, King Turkey still reigns rapreme on Thanksgiving day, a domesticated descendant of the wild turkey that offered a piece de resistance for the first Thanksgiving. And, pitying the less fortunate, we provide bounteous Thanksgiving dinners for them. But where the olden Thanksgiving was a strictly "home" observance featured by a huge dinner, modern celebrants have smaller appetites and wider interests. In 1938, Thanksgiving day football games are a major attraction. Some schools, like Pennsylvania and Cornell, have played their traditional Thanksgiving day game for years. THE OYSTER--THE TRUE SYMBOL OF GOOD EATING When Is The Best Time to Eat Oysters? Dr. Lewis Radcliffe, Director The Oyster Institute of North America, Washington, D. C. "We daily crys about the streets may Rear, According to the season of the year, Some Wcllfleet oysters call, others do cry, Fine Shellsca cockles, or white mub cles buy." In England each year there L; held the time-honored ceremonial of de daring open for the season the Colne Oyster Fishery, which, accoiding to ancient wording "Hath fiom time beyond which the memory of man tun neth not to the contrary" been with in the province of the Colchester Cor poration. Officials of Colchester and members of the Colne Fishery Board which manages the fis-hery, make a tour of the grounds followed fay quaint ceiemony which includes the reading of the nncient documents relating to the grant of the fisherj to the Corporation, the dispatch of a telegram to the King, intimating that according to ancient custom and charter of over 900 years, the fishery had been opened for the season and that the officials are drinking to the King's health. Thk is accomplished with gin to the accompaniment of the consumption of squares of ginger bread. Each year the group is addressed by some distinguished guest: La-st year's guest speaker, Sir Hiram Gregory, former Recorder of London, had this timely bit of advice to give: "Nowadays the world is bubbling and boiling and there seems no chance of settling down. What a pity it is that we cannot cultivate enough oysters to give our politicians throughout the world and get them into the state of mind that we are in at thu moment." As to the reason for a closed season on the English oyster, I think we may find the answer in its method of reproduction. While our eastern oyster discharges the sex elements into the surrounding waters, in the English oyster the young are retained in the chamber for a week or more, during which time they develop the rudiments of the fully formed s'hell, the tiny larvae passing through successive color changes from white to gray to blue-gray, slate and finally to purplish black. During the summer when the parent oysters are carrying from 500,000 to a million of the developing young it is understandable why they should not be so Jesirable for market. An to the reasons for the general lack of market demand for our American oysters, there appears to be variety of causes. First, it is probable that the only settlem brought over with them the customs that oysters should not be eaten during the R-less months. Furthermore an oyster full of spawn L- less attractive and after spawning is poor, not so palatable as a fat oyster, and finally it is only in recent years that we have had adequate cool storage facilities all along the line from packer to the consumer's modern refrigerator suitable for keeping the oysters in a perfectly fresh condition. Not only may our oysters be eaten with safety during the summer month,?, but there is actually a growing summer trade. There is also a considerable export trade to England for supplying their markets during the NOTICE! I We wish to announce telephone and delivery service.
