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 vinity. 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 they delicacies and are enter into the Joyful, merry es capades that only youth can fash ion; they are blessed. Can any one any one of us, scorn of therr Thanksgiving? Thanksgiving it does mean much to us. well-tende- d; OPEN DIPLOMACY European powers, big and small, were asking each other yesterday, "Who are your allies?" One of the biggest questions tliat has enEurope in the veloped last few months is whether this treaty is binding. The result was a renewed attempt by one European statesman, at 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 for internationalism. 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. war-scar- ed Y. M. C. A.

Without a doubt a dozen roses should be awarded to Chi Delta Phi in bringing about such a gglanttc coup. He talked about his book, "Man With Plow," with such the sincerity and honesty that everyone, whether they liked his poetry or not, listened and marveled that one so young could express himself so plainly yet so truly. His ideas are clean-cand very simple, but he has such a power of color that they are symbolic of great poetry. He is extremely young, very enthusiastic, but modest, and quite original. Jesse Stuart is on his way to the top. Many of us will look back and say "I met him when." Shattered Rhapsody It was cool along the lakeside drive, and the wind was strong. Slanting rays of the autumn sun fell among the dry, scattered leaves In the park, and glanced on the yellowing grass. The few benches under the bare trees were empty, and the broad expanse of fbnd to the left was wet and unfrocked, except where the receding waves left thin lines of foam on its surface. Lawrence Hunt walked slowly, his hands clenched in his overcoat pockets and his chin In his scarf. The automobiles on the boulevard moved past In an unbroken line, but he walked on, unheeding. Occasionally his foot crushed a leaf which had blown from the park across the drive. Lawrence wondered, vaguely, how the leaf had escaped crushing under the speeding, relentless wheels of the traffic. Escape from wheels, only to be crushed by a careless boot. He pressed his lips together, and raised his head. He was surprised to find that his eyes were full of 107. We feel that we owe an apology to Sigma Chi Bill Dawson. He didn't like the manner In which his singing of "Lost In a Fog" was taken In. It was when he was being sewed up that the singing occurred, and that only after his Joy at discovering that his sister and the other members of the accident were all right.

Presently, out of the darkness, figure moved into the circle of light on the corunder the street-lam- p ner, and her shadow moved across 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, and turned back to the silent figure unstreet-ligh- t. His eyes rested der the on her wonderingly, questionlngly, and then wandered down to his white clasped hands. Forty-on- e. In 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. HELEN 6:30 A.M. Union Station Ar. Knoxville (Convenient to Stadium) . .11:55 A.M. 6:45 P.M.

An automobile flashed past him with Its triumphant head lamps, leaving him In darkness until another blazed down the driveway. Lawrence turned his back to the lake and walked across to the park. Here he sat on cold, wet bench, deep In the gram, and lay his hat on the ground. The wind was becoming cold, now, but on his hot forehead It was refreshing, and Lawrence lay his head back against the rough bark of a tree and closed his eyes. A flurry brushed damp leaves about his ankles, but he did KNOXVILLE Thanksgiving Day, November 29 m Kentuckian. . tears, so that he could see only dimly. Slowly he drew his hand from his pocket and fumbled for his handkerchief, to blow his nose vigorously. He leaned against the high concrete embankment for a moment, and looked over the cold water to the lights on a steamer In the distance. The last rays of the sun were coloring the water In horizontal streaks of blue and gold, and the warning tinkle of the buoys sounded with every strong blast of wind. Lawrence lay his hands on the cold stone and stared at them. They were beautiful hands; strong and white. White! That was the trouble with him. He was too white; too Imaginative, too impractical. Those fingers were long, but they could not strain at Ivory keys. They could respond to the texture of painting, but they could not Interpret a mood or a thought into comprehensive beauty. As he looked at them, he hated thejr weakness-ha- ted the glory which lay all about him and which he could not interpret, even to himself. He gripped the concrete until the muscles of his wrists ached with pain, and then dropped his hands to his sides, helplessly, and watched the long lines of color fade into greyness and obscurity as the light vanished. Now electric lights flared along tlr drive, and Lawrence almost sobbed as he saw the long curving outline of the boulevard, which wound out into the blackness of the lake and finally lost Itself In a neighbors' cats. His ambition is to write for newspapers and magazines and perhaps teach in a university. In fact for the past three summers Professor Day has been teaching Fleming county lads their ABC's in one of those little "one-rooJobs," as he calls them. Sunny has lived in Iowa, Arkansas, and Ohio, but prefers the South, and especially Kentucky. He is frequently seen with Bettie Bosworth and thinks she is "the swellest." The most embarrassing thing that ever happened to Sunny occurred at a church wedding last spring. It seems he was singing "I Love You Truly" as a solo, when he inhaled one of the flies that was hovering near some adjacent flowers. The song ended abruptly, but Sunny's embarrassment lingered on ef n, c Tuesday, November 27, 1934 "' 4 J Hard-hearte- Dear Half Pint: I cannot thank j'ou sufficiently for your tremendous kind, considerate, and encouraging letter. I appreciate it all the more in that I can see that you are a man of precision and accurate observation by the manner in which you spell the name of our paj)er. You must have been a guiding light on this campus in your day. There is no doubt in my mind but that you were a star member of the Y. W. C. A. cabinet. When I received your epistle, I took the liberty of reading it to the Ethics and Principles class much to their enjoyment, needless to say. In fact it received a veritable ovation and one enthusiastic student proposed a rising vote of thanks to Mr. Taylor for his typical alunuil spirit. In all due modesty, however, I must not take all the credit for those editorials. I wrote the one headed TO YOU under protest after continued suggestion from Professor Grenan. PREPARE FOR PEACE was written by one of my associate editors, John St. John, with the express purpose of firing students to write in, in opposition, that we might have a basis for constructive argument. Your letter offered another reason for rejoicing. Not having received due publicity concerning your accomplishments since you left school, we were afraid that you might be deceased. Now that we know that you are residing at P. O. Box 114, verybody is happy. A Very Merry XMAS to you, JOHN F. DAY, Editor. The Young Men's Christian Association has been active on the campus of the University of Kentucky for a great number of years and has had a worthwhile Influence on the different student bodies.
