Thanksgiving Proclamation
The editor of The Open. Road, a
paper published in New Jersey,
issues the following proclamation:
To all whom it may concern,
(and to all others within the sound
of my voice:
Whereas we are in an awful
mess; and
Whereas it has been our custom
(mostly a foolish one) to observe
the last Thursday in .November of
each year as a National Thanks
giving Day. and to celebrate this
day with thanks, with feasting and
jollification; and
Whereas so many millions of
our fellow citizens have this year
nothing to be thankful fog. and
none of us very much to be thank
ful for; and
Whereas we believe the usual
celebration of the Dav would be
a cruel farce and a mockery:
Now Therefore, I, Chief Scribe
of the Society of Open Readers of
the World, do hereby forbid all
such celebrations this month, and
do by these presents ordain that
the day shall be kept by all good
Open Readers, (and all others of
right intent and generous hearts),
."ot as a dav of feasting and
Whoopee, as is customary, but as
a day of fasting and praver. Fast
ing for the repose of your own
souls; Prayer for the relief of the
millions of our brothers and sisters
who will go hungry and, cold on
that Day; prayer for the early
resolution of our national diffi
culties. Do this that your days
may be long in the land; your
sleep sweet, and youn* conscience at

Just Social
Later, Stephen T. Early, a sec
retary to Mr. Roosevelt, said the

After having been in ill health
tor more than a year, Peter Bgu
vold, Comertown, died at the Mi
not hospital last Monday morning
after an operation, where the sur
geons failed to find anything
which could be corrected.
Mr. Bruvold was 52 yeairs old: at
the time of his death. He came
to Montana from Ambrose, N. D.,
in 1912 and settled or. a homestead
near Comertown. While there he
took an active part in public af
He was twice married, and the
father of twelve children, five with
his first wife and seven with the
one now mourning his death.
Funeral services will be held at
Comertdwr, on Tuesday at 2 p. m.
under supervision of the Masonic
lodge of which he was a member.
Rev. L. S. Almlie of Westby will

or even
the "Internationale," Hanry Polk
would be the first one marching.
While the Allotment Committees
were being formed and elected,
many a secret meeting was held
at the Herald office between
Harry Polk and Carl Peterson try
ing to lay plans as to how the
Herald could get the printing, and
when their plans failed,
meetings were held and the whole
thing had to be done over again.
Not because the farmers had done
anything wrong, hut because the
farmers were not supposed to
their own association.
About the printing the Heirald
says: "

The committee .certainly
* But, what was
the reason they got this fair
price? It was simply because the
Producers Ndws had set that
price, and the other papers had to
.come down to it, although they did
not like it.
In the same article the Herald
has a fit oyer the Producers News
editor getting some money from
New York. Something the Herald
pretends to be better posted on
than we ape. But what has that
got to do with the printing con
If there is anything we need
here in Plentywood more than
money, jt is still more money. If
any of it could he sent from New
York and spent here we surely
should be the last ones to object
to it. But that is not the stand
that the Herald takes, Which gives
a fair example of its editor's
narrow mindedness.
That some money has come into
Plentvwood the last couple years,
through the Producers News from
different parte' of the United
States is something we should 1 not
object to if we have any sense at
all. What we should object to is
a Plentywood editor living at Wil
liston and draining our county for
every dollar he can get out of it.
That the Herald is singing Nels
Olson's praise is nothing more
than could be expected and
doubt Nels is nrond of it. More
nrroud of it than the people who
elected him.
