President Harding issued a proclamation
tonight designating Thursday, Novem
ber J4. as a day of Thanksgiving, devo
tion and prayer and urging the people
o give thanks “for all that has bee;-,
rendered unto them,” and to pray ‘‘for a
fontinuance of the divine fortune which
has been showered so generously upon
this nation.” The proclamation said :
‘ That season has come when, alike in
pursuance of a devout people’s time
lionored custom and in grateful recogni
tion of favoring national fortunes, it is
proper that the President should sum
moil the nation to a day of devotion, of
hanksgiving for blessings bestowed and
of prayer for guidance in modes of life
that may deserve continuance of divine
‘ Foremost among our blessings in the
return of peace and the approach to
normal ways again. The year has
brought us again into relations of amity
with all nations after a long period of
struggle and turbulence.
“Ours has been a favored nation in
the bounty which God has bestowed
upon it. The great trial of humanity,
though indeed we bore our part as vveii
as we were able, left us comparatively
little scarred. It is for us to recognize
that we have been thus favored, and
when we gather at our altars to offer
up thanks, yve will do well to pledge, in
humility and all sincerity, our purpose
to prove deserving. We have been
raised up and preserved in national
power and consequence, as part of a
plan whose wisdom yve cannot question
“Thus believing, we can do no less
than hold our nation the willing instru
ment of the providence which has so
wonderfully favored us. Opportunity
for very great service awaits us if we
shall prove equal to it. Let our prayers
be raised, for direction in the right
paths. L'rider God. our responsibility is
great; to our own tir•»t. to all men after
ward ; to all mankind in God’s own
