That custom we cam follow, now, even in the midst of the tragedy of a world shaken by war and immeasurable HisaKtpr. in the midst of sorrow and treat neril. because even amidst the darkness that has gathered about us. we can see the great blessings God has J bestowed upon us, blessings that are better than mere peace of mind and prosperity of enterprise. i "We have been given the opportunity to serve mankind as we once served ourselves in the great day of our Declaration of Independence, by taking up arms against a tyranny that threatened to master and debase men every where, and joining with other free peoples in demanding for all the nations of the world what we then demanded and obtained for ourselves. In this day of the revelation of our duty not only to defend our own rights as a nation, but to defend also the rights of free men throughout the world, there has been vouchsafed us In full and inspiring measure the resolution and spirit of united action. We have been brought to one mind and purpose. A new vigor of common counsel and common action has been revealed in us. Ve should especially thank GocF that in such circumstances, in the midst of the greatest enterprise the spirits of man have ever entered upon, we have, if we but observe a reasonable and practicable economy, abundance with which to supply the needs of those associated with us, as well as our own. A new light shines about us. The great duties of a day awaken a new and greater national spirit in us. We shall never again be divided or wonder what stuff we are made of. ' , . , "And while we render thanks for these-things, let us pray Almighty God that in all humbleness of spirit we may look always to Him for guidance; that we may be kept constant in the spirit and purpose of service; that by His grace our minds may be directed and our hands strengthened; -and that In His good time liberty and security and peace and the comradeship of a common justice may be vouchsafed all the nations of the earth "Wherefore I Woodrow Wilson, President of the United States of America, do hereby designate Thursday, the twenty-ninth day or November next as a day of thanksgiving and prayer, and invite the people throughout the land to cease upon that day from their ordinary occupations and In thir several homes and places of worship to render thanks to God, the great ruler f n"lnwSitness whereof.

The con gressmen and senators were kept busy during the half-hour prior to sailing time shaking hands with the. numer ous friends they had made during their brief visit. It was not until the two sharp blasts of the whistle warned them to get aboard that they hurried forward to the gangplank. Here Governor Lucius E.
