WEDNESDAY, NOV. 21, 1951 Psalm LXXV: 1-10 Unto thee, O God, do wt give thanks, unto thee do we give thanks:, for that thy name is near thy wondrous works declare. When I shall receive the congregation I will judge uprightly. The earth and all the inhabitants thereof are dissolved: I bear up the pillars of it. Selah. I said unto the fools. Deal not foolishly: and t£ the wicked, Lift not up the horn: Lift not up your horn on high: speak not with a sti£f neck. For promotion coroeth neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another. For in the hand of the Lord there is a cup, and the wine ii red; it is full of mixture; and he poureth out of the same: but the dregs thereof, all the wicked of the earth shall wring them out, and drink them. But I will declare forever: I will sing praises to the God of Jacob. All the horns of the wicked also ·will I cut off: but the horns of the righteous shall be exalted. Thanksgiving That first Thanksgiving observed fey the Pilgrim Fathers more than three centuries ago expressed gratitude, primarily, for the abundant "harvest that had crowned their labors after the bitter winter in which they had fought against the wilderness and the savage, out was the love of freedom that had brought them here, and so long ax a vestige of freedom endures Americans will have ample reason for observing their annual festival. Wave after wave of hardy pioneers pushed back the frontiers as the course of empire took its way westward until today there are no more free lands to lur« the restless adventurers, and in certain circles it has become the pattern to fall back upon the counsels of despair by assuming that the American people have nothing to look forward to except wars end taxes. But these exponents of gloom forget there are no frontiers to the human mind and the i n g e n u i t y of man, spurred by new visions, Is not to be permanently frustrated. Creature needs and comforts *eem trivial in comparison with the continued enjoyments of that Iree- dom which has been increasinply denied among the unhappy peoples in many lands. With sorrow and sympathy we see many of them in a bondage worse than death. Under an alien and ignoble rule, they drag out a desolate existence, seeking in vain for something which ju.-rtifies them in giving thanks. This nation is m a k i n g heavy s-ac- rifices in Korea while it builds the barriers against the evil overlords whose lust for power and riches ·cans new horizons. But the American people have lost none of the rugged courage vhich carried the fathers through their dark pilgrimage and gave them so much to be t h a n k f u l for as they sat down to their rude but cheerful feast on a stern and rockbound coast.

Nov. 21 J*)--A Thanksgiving prayer by a Korean: O Lord of our household, we thank 1hce for the ripe persimmon, the golden gourd, the rice that has ripened in the paddies. We thank thee for the daughter that is here, th« son that is still amon-g us. We pray thy help for the sons who are away. On this day of bounty we also pray thy blessing upon the q u a i n t stranger among us--the American, and his friends. They jurely follow their duty. Dear Lord, it is hard to be a Korean in these days. There is the question of how we should turn. And no matter how we turn there is trouble. We are, O.Lord, as thou knowest, an humble farm folk. Our days are measured by the turning sun. The best reward we can hope for is good weather. Whe the grain ripens, we ripen. When the rice tumbles under storm, we falter. Our hopes rise or f a i l with the growth in the fields. Such are we. No people to rise up and boldly change any other people's history-but one who has always been ready to rise to defend our own. The Russians and their Chinese friends come down from the north to tell a Korean what a Korean should be. And from the south the stubborn Americans and their allies say what a Korean should also be. It is all so confusing, bloody, and temporary. In this tangled international responsibility the average Korean would like to take time off. look at himself in the mirror-and see what he would like a Korean to be. O Lord, our people are divided. We are unique in history. We are caught in a civil war--a war this side of the 38th Parallel. And we are also become an international testing ground of the weapons of outsiders. But a people and a land must choose, O Lord. And on this day of Thanksgiving, it is the mouth of South Korea that speaks thy praise here. Our faults, are sored In thy divine eyes.. Our virtues are as snows before thy suns. They melt, and they are humble. Yet. O Lord, Korea must be our own Korea again. It was our f a i r land of morning calm for so long. It must be our f a i r land of morning again. There was a time before the foreigners first came when a Korean, dying, was buried huddled in hill slope that looked across a green- Ing paddy and a flowing stream to another h i l l beyond. It was all Korea then. And that U the way it must be ngain. A Korean must have a place to die in-and to live In--thnt he can call his own. He must. O Lord, havt a land he can call--his chosen.

Thanksgiving' is th* oldest and most truly American of our national holidays, yet it Is hard for us to realize t h a t the beginnings of Thanksgiving go back not only to the Old World, but to the early world when men first began to sow and reap. Long before the dwellers by the Nile learned to measure the year or dreamed of b u i l d i n g pyramids, all people who grew grain gave thanks at harvest t i m e to the Beings who had given them their d a i l y bread for the hard w i n t e r months.

The story of the I n d i a n from nearby Carlisle who was recently named All-Time All American in a poll of sports columnists. To people too young to remember the glowing achievements of Jim Thorpe, the story of his career reads like fiction. In baseball, football, field and track he established remarkable records and his awards in the Olympic games of 1912--later retracted because of one of the most famous'scandals: in sports history--are still remembered by sports experts w i t h awe.

Today In Washington Taxpayers Can B« Sur« There Will Be N» Increase* Voted By Congress During 1952 By DAVID LAWRENCE WASHINGTON, Nov. 21--The taxpayers of the nation can rest assured that they will not have any further increase in rates imposed upon them by Congress during 1952. This can be derived from a canvass of all the important authorities here who have anything to do with tax legislation. Foremost among these, of course, are the chairmen of the House Way» and Means committee and the Senate Finance committee, but it it a fact that the Treasury Department itself does not expect any further, legislation to increase taxes. In referring to objectives of new legislation, the phrase that now is used is "to improve" the tax structure. This means changes and revisions in the administrative sec- tiorik of the law, and very often these adjustments result in increased revenue. When it is stated flatly that the IVeanury does uot expect any more increases in tax rates, this is not to say that there will be no recommendations along that line. To keep the record straight, the President will ask for higher taxes. But Congress will pigeonhole the request because there is a virtually unanimous feeling in both political parties in Congress that the present tax rates have about reached the saturation point. Also, because Congress didn't enact the latest law with its rate changes to take effect for the full calendar year 1951, it is necessary to observe the operation of the new rates on the full calender year of. 1952 before making any further recommendations. It could be that, with the armament boom, the 1952 tax collections will be higher than has been estimated, and hence the margin between receipts and expenditures may be narrower than has heretofore been believed would be the case. There is a school of thought on taxation, incidentally, which believes that the way to increase total receipts Li to reduce rather than increase t$xes in boom times. This theory holds that business improves when tax laws furnish less impediment and that many trans- actions which are held up because of high taxes would be consummated if lower rate* prevailed. Thus any upward rise in capital-gains taxes has always been regarded as one way to ' freeze real-estate transactions and cause prices to soar in order to leave a reasonable net for the capital-gains seller after paying taxes. To reduce capital-gains taxes is to stimulate business volume. The general feeling in Congress against passing any further tax laws with higher rates happens to coincide with the fact that 1952 is a year in which a President and a new Congress are to be selected The issue of high taxes will be discussed widely on the stump and nothing would contribute mojre to the nation-wide discontent than another tax bill superimposed on the present one, which has hardly been digested. Even Marriner S. Eccles, former chairman of the Federal Reserve Board, who has always ad- vocated higher and higher taxes when needed to balance budgets, is quoted now as opposed to any rise in the tax rates. In his speech in New York he declared that the tax system "has been strained to the limit" and "if it is expanded any further, that will be the ruination of incentive." It will be interesting to see whether the labor-union leaders will accept this approach or insist on higher taxes. If the labor-union group argues for higher taxes, it probably will be the only one that does take that view. But if tax rates aren't increased and the Federal budget faces a big deficit, what will the government do? It cannot go on spending indefinitely with higher and higher deficits. The only course it can follow will be to reduce expenses. Representative Reed , of N e w York, ranking Republican member of the House Ways and Means committee, predicts that Congress at its next session will be more economy-minded than it has been in recent years. Apparently the day of decision on national policy as against further increase in tax rates and against mounting expenditures is not far away. (Reproduction Rights Reserved) AP Weekly Food Review By Th» Associated Turkey prices were trimmed to as much as alight cents a pound in many retail stores this week as Cood buying picked up sharply for the Thanksgiving Day feast. Supplies of gobblers were reported ample everywhere, with approximately the same price differentials among the various size classifications prevailing as last year. In general, turkeys weighing 16 pounds and over cost around eight to 10 cents a pound lesi than smaller sizes. Other meats, including roasting chickens, beef rib roasts, pork loins and smoked hams, held about unchanged from last weekend. Butter, eggs and several fresh vegetables were higher in most markets. Cranberries, because of a small crop this year, were higher priced. However, the boost was smaller t h a n normally would have been the case because cranberries are among the Thanksgiving Day specials which storekeepers want to stress in their advertising. In the big New York wholesale market, cranberries were quoted at just twice the year-ago price.

They are constantly watching for new opportunities and the big rewards which will come to those who are patient. Free Heat And Free Power Growth stocks are usually based on n a t u r a l re sources. The buying of g r o w t h stocks today requires the same courage and patience as our an. c,estors n e e d e c when they wen' west and homesteaded land 100 years ago. Wealthy families ol the central wesl today are descendants of these pioneers who were then inspired to make the necessary sacrifices. Later they found coal, oil, sulphur, gypsum, or other valuable products. The physical natural resources of this country have been mostly discovered; but great spiritual natural resources remain untapped for those who have the same courage, patience and self-control of their ancestors. Undiscovered riches today, therefore, will follow the awakening of the souls of youth to create and make new discoveries. These will enable people to live much longer, learn much faster, rearrange the atoms, to make new products and enjoy free power and free heat from gravity and the sun. Different Natural Resources These new developments must come through spiritualty inspired brains. Hence, instead of homesteading land, we today should "homestead" brains! This means to invest more in labor and 'give more time to the minds of human beings, especially to the minds of our children. They are neglected today. We think that television machines, airplanes and electrical appliances are wonderful; but these are mere peanuts compared with the intricate and marvelous machinery of the human brain. Yet, the Asiatics and Africans, whom I have hired for ten cents a day, have these human brains. To spiritually awaken these billions of brains is the next great "frontier."' I wish I were younger to have a part in it. Brains As Investments This most wonderful .machine is in your own children's heads Your boy can develop his brain to become an Edison, a Firestone or a Ford; but the first 'step towards success is to inspire him to think. work, love and save. These men were inspired by their parents: they never went to college.

The peace the world seeks depends on one's surroundings; k time of trouble its sources are cut off, like a spring outside the castle walls. But the peace Christ gives is that of the spring within, a woader- ful source of strength in the hour of need. My peace I give unto you.

Clerks, salesmen and so-called executives are really in the "manual labor" group, depending upon habit, m e m o r y , speed or friendship pay checks. little o'r no creative work. Yes, the brains of our children are great undeveloped resources and offer you unlimited possibilities. These brains are worth to parents far more than any pensions which parents may ever receive. What Parents Can Bo Schools arc doing their best to help your children. Furthermore, they do not expect you to teach them reading, writing, a r i t h m e t i c or any of the hugher subjects. Schools, however, depend upon parents to set their children an example in good habits, good reading and thrift^ As a child's religion is determined before he is 12 years old, so is his success or failure. In almost ever}' case a boy's f u t u r e is determined by the t r a i n i n g which the boy received at home during his early teens. If he has been inspired to think, to work, to save and to pray, he becomes a success-ful man--college or no college. Systematic reading and creative thinking will then be his education. Therefore, great undeveloped frontiers are now available; but they are spiritual frontiers. To conquer them requires the same courage, determination and sacrifice that our ancestors had when conquering the west. Instead of forsaking comfortable homes, cutting away forests and living in log cabins, our children, perhaps, must win their independence by forsaking amusing radios, televisions and useless reading, by refusing to "keep up with Lizzy," and by cultivating their minds as their ancestral pioneers cultivated the land. Inspired brains are the "gold mines" of the future. (Copyright Babson Newspaper Synd.) T. M. RgO. V ». PAT, OFF. COPR. 1951 BY NEA SERVICE. INC "Supposing it is only puppy love!
