Says There is Ample Warrant
For It Even in Midst
of World Tragedy.
WASHINGTON, D. C., Nov. 8.?
President Wilson Issued last night his
4 1917 Thanksgiving proclamation, calling
upon the N'tloo- even In the mhlst
o? the sorrow and great peril of a world
shaken by war. to thank God for blessings
that are better than mere peace
of mind and prosperity of enterprise.
The proclamation (lxing Thursday,
November 29. as Tbanksgtvlug Day.

"By the President of the United
States -it America.
"A proclamation.
"It haB long been the honor custom
of our people to turn In the fruitful
auiumn of the year in praise aud
^thanksgiving to Almighty God for His
many blessings and mercies to us as
a Nation. That custom we can follow
now. even in the midst of the
- tragedy of a world shaken by war and
. immeasurable disaster, in the midst
. of sorrow and great peril, because even
/ amidst the darkness that has gathered
f about us we can see the great blessf
logs God bas bestowed upon us, blessings
that are better tb&n mere peace ol
I mind and prosperity of enterprise.
1 "Wo have been given the opportunity
to serve mankind as we once
served ourselves in tbe great day of
our Declaration of Independence, by
taking up arms against a tyranny tliat
threatened to master and debase men
everywhere, and Joining with other
free peoples in demanding lor all the
- Nations ol the world what we then
demanded and obtained (or ourselves.
In this day of the reflation of our
duty not only to defend our own
rights an a Nation but to defend also
the rights of free men throughout tbe
world, there bas beeu vouchsafed us
in full and inspiring measure tbe resolution
and spirit of united action.
We have been brought to one mind ana
-purpose. A new vigor of common
counsel and action bas been revealed
.in us. We Bhould especially thank God
that in such circumstances. In .the
midst of the greatest enterprise the
oyuiio vi uieii uave ever cuiuiuu uyuu,
we have, if we but observe a reasonable
and practicable economy, abundance
with wbicb to supply the needs
o( those associated with us, as well as
our own. A new light shines about us.
The great duties of a new day awaaen
a new and greater national spirit in us.
We shall never again be divided or
' wonder wbat stuff we are made of.
"And while we render tbanks for
i these things, let us pray Almighty God
. that In all humbleness of spirit auu
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.
