N C. Notes Thanksgiving
November 20 This Year
Broughton Says State Will
Follow Precedent Set by
President Roosevelt
RALEIGH, Feb. 3—151— North
Carolina will.celebrate Thanksgiv
ing this year on Novemer 20—
the third Thursday in Novemer—
Governor Broughton announced to
day.
Thus, the state for the first time
will follow the precedent set by
President Roosevelt in advancing
the Thanksgiving date by one
week. Former Governor Hoey
twice declined to follow the Presi
dent, and North Carolina observed
“old Thanksgiving” in 1939 and
1940.
Broughton issued the following
statement:
“Thursday, November 20, which
is the third Thursday in Novem
ber, will this year be designated
officially as Thanksgiving Day in
North Carolina. This will follow
the precedent set by President
Roosevelt in designating the third
instead of the fourth Thursday of
November as Thanksgiving Day. It
is understood that the President
during the remainder of his term
in office will continue to designate
the third Thursday as Thanksgiv
ing Day.
“I am making this announce
ment at this time because requests
have come from many quarters
that such information be given.
Schedules of varied events for the
fall are in many cases contingent
on the designation of Thanksgiving
Day, and many of these schedules
are pointed far in advance.
“While my personal preference
would be tor the fourth Thursday
in November, which is the Thanks
giving Day to which we have been
accustomed, I am yielding my pre
ference to what seems to be an
overwhelming sentiment in favor
of the newly designated day.
“Last year 32 states of the union
followed the President in designat
ing the third Thursday as Thanks
giving Day. There are indications
that even a larger number this
year will follow such designation,
I have received from every sectior
of North Carolina numerous letters
and other communications aboul
the matter and they are in the
ratio of about ten to one in favoi
of the new date. In deference tc
this sentiment and in keeping witl
the great majority of other states
I shall follow his new designator
this year and during the succeed
ing years of my administration.” Z

POLICY FOR HOME
GUARDS PLANNED
Broughton Says Certain Legis
lation May Be Needed
Regarding Units
RALEIGH, Feb. 3.—<*>—Th#
“general policy” which will gov*
ern the operation of home guard
units in North Carolina probably
will be announced within a few
days, Governor Broughton said to*
day.
He added that certain legislation
might be needed in regard to the
units, and that if this were found
to be the case bills would be
promptly introduced in the general
assembly.
Broughton conferred this after*
noon with a Hickory delegation,
headed by Mayor Walker Lyerly
and City Attorney Bailey Patrick,
which was interested in having a
unit established there. He said he
told the group “that we are deal*
ing with the home guard on a
state-wide basis, but that I would
do all I could within the general
policy to obtain a home guard unit
for Hickory.”
Home guard units in North Caro*
lina were authorized recently by
the War department, to replace
the mustered National Guard.

Spitfire Fighter Blows
Heinkel Bomber to Bitt
LONDON, Feb. 3—(fPi—A Spit
fire fighter plane, with its cannon
roaring at point-blank range, blew
a Heinkel bomber to bits over the
Thames Estuary this afternoon.
“It was like having a dustbin
emptied into your face,” the 21
year-old Spitfire pjlot said after
diving perilously through the hail
of debris.
The flier said he sighted the
Heinkel at 3,000 feet, while cruis
ing 1,000 feet below.
Climbing steeply, he said he
“crept to within 50 yards of the
bomber.” “Then I opened fire. The
result was amazing. I hadn’t given
him more than a two-second burst
when pieces of the bomber flew
off like chips from a log and so
blinded me I had to stop firing
and dodge out of the way.” 3
