Thanksgiving what dors it mean
Thanksgiving is a day of praise,
a moment when, turning from the
wild, swirling rush that is human
ity, a nation causes, humble, to
thank Ood for His blessings. It
is a time of gladness, of praise, of
oeace. It is man's tribute to Di
Thanksgiving Is the period when
fumihes are reunited, when differences are forgotten and harsh
feelings lost in the spirit of goodness, when greed is transcended by
gratitude. It is the hour of love and
mercy and tenderness. It is an act
of compassion that soothes the
tired heart and administers com
fort to the suffering.
Thanksgiving is the day when
served and servitor, rich and poor,
sinner and sinless, weak and
strong, all bow in reverence to a
greater force; when businesses are
suspended and the work of men
ceases; when the light of God
shines brightest Into the lives of
mortal beings and we are led to a
closer view of Him.
Thanksgiving is a holiday: schools
close their doors; young men and
young women dash for the freedom
from restriction; they are happy,
carefree, alive; they hasten to the
welcome of home; they feast upon
delicacies and are

capades that only youth can fash

European powers, big and small,
were asking each other yesterday,
"Who are your allies?" One of
the biggest questions tliat has enEurope in the
last few months is whether this
treaty is binding.
The result was a renewed attempt
by one European
least, for recognition of tine of
Woodrow Wilson's noted 14 points,
basis of settlement of the Versailles Treaty. Premier Benito Mussolini, who has more than once this
year dispelled European war clouds,
has urged the League of Nations
to outlaw the secret commercial entente, and military agreements.
This movement, the first since
Wilson acceded to the European demands during negotiations for the
1918 peace, may be the beginning
of a new school of diplomacy. That
there are arguments for such secret diplomatic maneuverings goes
without saying for mob psychology is still a problem.
But the many advantages of openly dickering for commercial support as well as supjxrt in arms reduction and navy control overcome
this handicap. Japan may realize
that to obtain naval parity with
the United States, she must dicker
hot only with this country but
England, as well. Germany might
also realize by this open diplomacy
that she is walled in by the powers
surrounding her and must stop her
nationalistic policies and become a
part of the Central European bloc
Adoption of this Important provision of Wilson's must become a
reality In the next few months If
the present European warfare is to
be limited to words.

Lawrence's face. He opened his
eyes and looked at her, calmly. She
did not speak, or turn, and after
little, Lawrence's eyes moved beyond her, across the wide boulevard with Its chains of light, to the
flat, dark surface of the lake. There
was only a thin line, now, to separate sky and water, and soon there
would be only the blackness of a
void. The man shuddered,
turned back to the silent figure unstreet-ligh- t.
His eyes rested
on her wonderingly, questionlngly,
and then wandered down to his
white clasped hands.
He was forty-onten more years, those fingers would
be limp and colorless. And now,
while they were strong, he was so
helpless. Helpless to ure them, to
give his strength to a creation of
his own. He felt the rage of a
hunted animal whose last pathway
is blocked. But then the shadow
moved again, and left Lawrence's
face In the light. He looked up at
her, and smiled.
