Dear "Plghtln-. Man":
' Maybe you think your bid home
county has forgotten you and her
' ' other 100 sons who went forth to
bnttle'lhe Hun. If so, your guess Is
far froni the, reality as the Raiser's
soul Is from Heaven, for the memory
ot the. boys who gave up their peace
ful pursuits hereabouts and who are
now serving tinder the Star Spangled
Banner on European bnttleflelds, on
ships of war and In camps and con
tainments Is nbout the llvest and
proudest memory that ever found
lodgement In these parts.
You and the other fellows who wear
the uniform have never been out of
mind or nut of heart and we believe,
you will find some gratification In the I
fact that your home county has not
yet failed to go "over the top" In your
support in all of tha many war fund
It has heretofore been Impossible
for any organisation or any Individ
ual to' send letters or other remem
brances ,to any considerable number

the Patriotic. I-agiia has. with the as
sistance of the newspapers ' of the
county and other agencies, been com
piling records of those who have
Joined the colors from ITmntllla coun

and 1300 names on record but the ad
dresses of only obont one-third this
number have been turned In. There-fort-
If there are other boys from thta

from home, please let them know that
It Is only because their addresses have

ORIGIN OF THANKSGIVINGDAY
The firm ThanksglVln Day was obnrved by ihe 1'ilnrim Fathers
at Plymouth, Muse.. 1621. The wttlciH ana iheii Indian guet fram
ed on -wild turkeys und deer.
DuriiiK the revolution Thanksgiving was a national institution, an
nually recommended by Congress; but after the, general Thanksgiving
for peace in 1784, there was no national appointment until 1789, when
Washington, by request of Congress, recommended a day of thankH
Kivinr for the adoption of the constitution.
WashinKton issued a second proclamation of thanksgiving in 1?9't
on account of the suppression of insurrection. There was thanksgiv
ing for peace in 1815, until which time Thanksgiving had been mainly
a New Kngiand custom.
During the Civil War, 1863-64, Lincoln Issued proclamations
recommending annual Thanksgivings, 4ince then a proclamation has
been Issued annually. i,
According to - thij .latest figures
compiled of I'matllla county in the

lias been reported. This shows the
county well on the way to the 50 per
cent over subscription asited by the
national committee. A few districts
are yet to make final report and this
total will be increased before the cam-

The Home Service section of

communication for N'ota from
relatives of his who live in Ger

searched diligently for the man
but he is not known at postof

The message came to head
quarters in Washington. IK C,

have so far been unavailing
WASHINGTON'. D. C, Nov. 28.
George Creel, chairman of the com
mittee on public information, made a
statement today denying that press
censorship would be in effect while
! . ,
.line peace conierence was in progress.
He said: '
"It is requested and hoped that eor -
! rection be made of the very untrue re-
port that an attempt would be made -
to interfere in any manner with the;
free flow of news from America in I
Kurope or from Europe o America-
Xo Press Censorship Now.
t he whole effort of the govern
ment from Ihe firfct has been to as
sure adequate and authoritative rep-.,
resenution of the press at the peace
conference and to assist news distri

' "The widely circulated rumor thai
leorge Creel, chairman of the com
mittee on public information. will
have control of official publicity in
connection with the peace conference
absolutely without foundation.
There will be no such control and
the situation itself precludes any such
control. The peace conference itself
will undoubtedly decide upon the
manner of announcing its delibpration-
