A National Holiday
Why not make November 11 a na
tional holiday? The question and
suggestion 1b made In good faith, and
for the Inofrmatlon of many who be
lieve that the Fourth of July Is suffi
cient for all purposes, It may be
stated that the Independence day,
celebrated on July 4. has never been
proclaimed a national holiday, and
while it is generally observed, has no
place In official records other than as
given In 1776 as a date of great sig
nificance. November 11, practically bringing
the end of the world war, in which
the United States was engaged 'on
principle, and not for gain, could well
be made a national holiday. The
importance of the events that led up
to the signing of an armistice by Ger
many should never be forgotten and
it would be a fitting tribute to allied
Interests as well as to our own coun
try, to mark with special distinction
the day on which the greater portion
of the world celebrated a victory for
the rights of the people.
This is not a suggestion that any
part of the observance of the coun
try's birthday anniversary be omit
ted. The Fourth of July was cele
brated in Great Britain last summer
and was an occasion of great Joy and
jubilation In France and Italy. It is
right and proper to continue the
demonstrations that especially recall
the birth pf a country that was to
become an impelling voice in the
chorus of nations; but it seems prop
er to make a national holiday to
commemorate the achievement of
the United States, now grown to full
strength and magnificent in her pow
er and influence.
To America is conceded the weight
that forced the bonds of tyranny
from millions of people; let America
set apart November 11 as a day of
thanksgiving and general rejoicing.
November has long been the month
in whicb a thanksgiving day has
been observed, designated each year
by federal and state executives; this
then would be but the fixing of the
date, permanently and moving the
celebration a few days forward. It
could, still be called Thanksgiving
day, for such it was, all over the
Unquestionably, behind the bolei
terous, noisy, unusual and often
seemingly senseless ways of giving
vent to the feelings, observed on the
eleventh day of November, 1918,
there was "thanksgiving" in every
true heart for the news that had
come in the early hours of the morn
ing, flashed over land and sea, meant
more than mere words could express
That the day could well be set apart
as a day of national thanksgiving
seems right and reasonable. Why
not have a national holiday and make
It November 11? not the first Tues
day, or the last Thursday, in Novem
ber, but November 11, the greatest
day in the history of the world.
THE FARMER'S HAPPY LOT
There is no need for the people of
Florida to send out of the State for
anything they need in the way of
food supplies. Almost anything
which is produced elsewhere may be
produced on the Florida farm.
In times such as we are now going
through, the Florida farmer should
regard himself as being truly fortu
nate. In the towns and cities food
of all kinds is higher than even many
old men have ever known it to be.
Yet the Florida farmer is not dis
turbed on this account. In fact he
is making a greater profit on his pro
duce than he every made bef re,
while at the same time the high
prices for food amounts to nothing to
him because he raises all he con
sumesif ho Is a true farmer.
He can have fresh eggs for break
fast at little or no cost for them
whilo his friend in town must pay
75 cents a dozen for them, or do with
Ho has an abundance of milk while
his city friend has to buy It at 20
cents a quart.
He has plenty of fresh Jersey but
ter Just from the churning while the
town people have to pay 70 cents a
pound for It.
He has an abundance of sugar,
made at little cost on his farm, while
the city folk are limited to two
pounds per month.
He Is provided by his farm with
hams, bacon, beef, pork, mutton,
chickens, vegetables, grits and fre3h
corn meal, fruits, etc., at little or no
cost for the amount consumed by
simself and family, while his sur
plus brings him a handsome income.
His occupation is pleasant and In
teresting. His life, removed from
the flurry of commercial activity, Is
lived in peace and quiet. He can
eleep well at night undisturbed by
nightmares of business worry.
Sometimes his visitors come in the
form of storm or of Jack Frost, but
ho soon repairs the damage and re
sumes his life of peace and quiet
If the Florida farmer isn't the
happiest man among men, there is
something tho matter with the man
or his methods. Clearwater Sun.
