My hunger is > I feel quite well. Though I did cat a lot, You never caa lell. I hope that the world Has been Just as gay,, As I have been thankful This Thanksgiving day. —Helen Becker. I am thankful this day of Thanksgiving for all the blessings of this hever-to-be-forgotten year, 1930. I am thankful that our country is at peace. I am thankful, most of all, that I was born in this golden land of promise, this land of equal rights, and equal chances for all. I am thankful for the American ideals, which nothing can dim. I am thankful for all American institutions, schools, churches, Inventions, and especially for my own Christian home and my kind, loving parents.—Margaret Habegar. What, you ask, have I to be thankful ' for? lYes, many things both great and small Twould be a task to list them all. First comes mother-love and father- care, There are brothers strong and sisters' fair, Health and food follow these, Then there's nature—earth, sky, birds, and trees, There's each day dawning bright, And the hours of rest that come at night; The kindness shown us by every friend Which to many mean sacrifices In "the end. These things and many, many more, We all should be thankful for; Let us then show God in every way. How grateful we are this Thanksgiving Declamatory Contest.

Whait have I to be thankful? Many things. I'm Ithankful I have a home and a place to Which I go when all other enjoyments get old and stale. A home Is something that everyone really wants, but does he show his love for It? No, It's only a place to which he goes for something to eat and a place to sleep. But In later years he realizes how Important that home was to him hi his young and foolish days. Another thing I have to be thankful for also centers around the home. These are the ones we cherish above all other—parents. They encourage you when you're like a whipped dog with his tall between his legs. They give you an education and want you to succeed, so that some day they can say, when you have accomplished some ^ , _„, _.., __ , TC _ „ _ difficult feat, "My child did that." -| Wallace's room' at Bryant The op- Honor Students, Those on the city hall honor roll for the last six weeks are: Barbara Haggard, Russell Kelly, Geraldine Pedersen, Etheline Muckey, Harry Greenberg, Mary Louise Gilmore, Bob Dewel and Helen Chubb.
