Just at 8 o'clock the great main

THREE years of peace have passed three years of
reconstruction. Surely, we as a nation, have much
to be thankful for much to console ourselves that our plight is not
greater or our burden more wearisome.
Peace on earth has been finally established. So let us offer cheer to the sorrowful, bounty to the
needy, and balm to the stricken. In this spirt let us celebrate this Armistice Day Anniversary.
And let us hope that the conclusions of the Disarmament conference, called by President Hard
ing, will pave the way to the eradication of war and that all its accompanying scourges will be effaced
from this earth; that the term "brotherhood of man" will bear a more definate meaning than mere words.
Let us make this a day worth remembering- as sacred and memorable as our national holiday the
Fourth of July. And let us rejoice that November brings forth two great days of thanksgiving Armis
Day and Thanksgiving Day.
Our Establishments Will Remain Closed all Day Friday, November llthl
