"By the President of the United

"In the beginning of our country
the custom 'was established by the
devout fathers of observing annually
a day of thanksgiving for the boun
' !es and protection which Divine
** Yrovidence had extended throughout
the year It has come to be perhaps
the most characteristic of our na
tional observance, land as the season
- approaches for its annual recur
rence, it is fitting formally to direct
attention to this ancient institution
of our people and to call upon them
again to unite in its appropriate
"The year which- now approaches
its end has been marked, in the ex
perience of our nation, by a com
plexity of trials and triumphs, of dif
ficulties and of achievements, which
we must regard- as our inevitable
portion in such an eioch as that
through which all mankind is mov
ing. As we survey the experience
of the passing 12 months, we shall
find that our estate presents very
much to justify a nation-wide and
most sincere testimony of gratitude
for the bounty which has been be
stowed upon us. Though we have
lived in the shadow of the hard coh
sequences of great conflict our coun
try has been at peace and has been
able to contribute toward the main
tenance and perpetuation of peace
in the world. We have seen the
race of mankind make gratifying
progress on the way to permanent
peace, toward order and restored
confidence in its high destiny.
"For the divine guidance which
has enabled us, in growing fraternity
with other peoples, to attain so much
of progress; for the bounteous -yield
which has come to us from the re
sources of our soil and our indus
try, we owe our tribute of gratitude,
and with it our acknowledgement of
the duty and obligation to our peo
ple and to the unfortunate, the suf
fering, the distracted of other lands.
Let us, in all humility, ackn:. wledge
how great is our debt to the Provi
dence which has generously dealt
with us, and give devout assurance
of unselfish purpose to play a help
ful and ennobling part in human ad
vancement. It is much to be de
S sired that, in rendering homage for
the blessings which have come to us,
we should earnestly testify our con
tinued and increasing aim to make
our great fortunes a means of help
ing and serving, as best we can, the
cause of all humanity.
"Now, therefore, I, Warren G.
Harding, president of the United
W State8 of America, do designate
Thursday, the 80th day of Novem
ber, as a day of thanksgiving, sup
plication and devotion. I recom
mend that the people gather at their
family altars and in their houses of
worship to render thanks to God for
the bounties they have enjoyed and
to petition that these may !,e con

warehouse coamnissioner, today issu
ed a statement in which he made
plans for extending the operations
of the state warehouse to receiving
all non-perishable farm products,
and products that are nmade so by
canning or other process.
The state warehouses are now re
ceiving for storage grain, peas, vel
vet beans and other products, which
according to Mr. Rivers' statement,
can be stored and receipted for as
effectually as cotton.
"In the near future," the state
ment goes on, "the commissioner ex
pects to put on a special inspector
for this work, who will be able to
develop plans to carry out the law
as recently enacted, enlarging the
scope of the state warehouse activi
ties so as to include any farm pro
duct which by its niature is nun per
ishable. This plan will wo.k in con
nection with agencies now institut
ed in this state for diversified agri
culture and be a part in the plan for
improving the marketing organiza
tions of the state. The system is
working together with the Cotton
Growers' Co-operative Association
in this state in the storing of cot
ton at their assembling points and.
properly receiving and caring for it
until needed for concentration and
gale. This gives the association the
benefit of the state receipts which
enables them to properly finance
their organization and also gives
them the benefit of the state system
of inspecting, counting and report
ing on their cotton."
