JOHN HOLLAND ON AN ILLINOIS FARM just the other day, a dramatic scene oc curred. Adam Mertinek, a displaced man from Warsaw, Poland, was asked by a neighbor how he liked living in America. For an answer, the lately arrived man fell to the ground on his knees and gave thanks to God for his good fortune in get ting to America. As I think of our annual Thanks giving day, somehow that thankful Polish man keeps coming to my mind. In a world tom by dissen sion, threatened by starvation, a world talking peace, while arming to the teeth: with labor and man agement jockeying for advantage; with millions of people looking, not for work, but for a dole—in such a world, what have we left for which to be thankful? Suppose we ask this displaced, now placed, Pole on this Illinois farm. I think he would say something like this: Thankful for Freedom "If you could have seen the sights that have frozen my soul, you would almost worship the flag which guar antees your freedoms. I have ex isted, not lived, under the flag that denies everything enjoy freely. To see every dear thing trampled under foot, to be treated as a beast of burden rather than as a man— that has been my portion for nine years. "We Poles love freedom, and some of our people have fought for free dom in America, and now that I am here, I know why they came. "Do you know what it is to be a slave? I was taught in childhood to worship God and follow the teach ings of Christ. Even that right was taken away from me. The Russians destroyed even the church where I once worshiped. Churches are free here and I shall always worship in them. I wonder why every Amer ican does not go to church every Sunday to thank God for the privi lege of worshiping. When the Rus sians wanted to make beasts of us, they shut the doors of our churches. In them at least, we enjoyed some freedom to think, and pray. You have always had that right. I hope you never neglect it or lose it. Land of Friendliness Coming to America and traveling from New York, I saw more signs of wealth and happiness than I knew existed on this earth. I hope you are thankful. Here, I begin to feel like a man again. Neighbors in quire if I am well, or happy. It is a land of friendliness. Oh, you fortunate Americans have a great task ahead of you. Guard your liberty of person and your individual freedom. You will lose them unless you do. It is easier to fight for freedom than to pre serve it in times of peace." Some such words as these must be in the hearts of thousands who u I . have come and will come to our They have much to liberty land, teach us and much to learn from us. Let us, like this Pole, devoutly thank God for the blessings that are ours. Then every day will become Thanks 1 giving day.
