Since 1628 the last Thursday of November has been designated for Thanksgiv W« shouldn't think of Thanksgiv ing as a day of festivity but we should show our gratitude by gfvinf, thanks for our share with animals, birds and other living beings, for the fruitful soil, for sunlight and rain, and for the mysterious processes ol a vital universe. We shouldn't only I be thankful for these but also for the enjoyment we get, such as the radio, telephone, use of electricity, and ■ many other inventions that we didn't have when the Pilgrims landed on ing. Plymouth Rock. Let ns also give thanks for the freedom we have—such as, political freedom, freedom of church, freedom of thought, and freedom of speech. For the coming year let us think oi Thanksgiving as a day for giving thanks instead of a day of festivity, PAPER FROM STRAW Will the time come when the straw stacks of Montana wheat farms will have a cash value and will be sought by paper factories located within the state?
