I THANKSGIVING DAY i
Calling upon the people of
" Oregon to "tender thanks to
him who watches over all for
the bounties and blessings by
him bestowed," Governor
Withycombe has in a procla
mation designated Thursday,
November 25, as Thanksgiving
day. The proclamation reads:
"Whereas, the year 1915 is
drawing to a close, and for
Oregon and these United
States, its months have been
full of the blessings of peace,
in welcoming contrast to the
horrors of the great war which
has ravaged so many of the
less fortunate countries of the
world ; and
"" Whereas, each and ' avarr
one of us has much for which
to be grateful, individually
and as citizens of our country .
and our state; and
"Whereas, it is a time-honored
custom for the governors
of the several states to join:
with the president of the Uni
ted States in nroclaimino. a
dlay of state-wide and national
"Now, therefore, I, James
Withycombe, governor of the
state of Oregon, by virtue of
the authority vested in me, do
hereby proclaim Thukday, No
vember 25, 1915, as Thanks
giving day; and I call upon
the state, of Oregon to pause
from their labors and on that
day tender thanks to him who
watches over all for the coun
ties and blessings by him be
stowed. "In testimony whereof I
have hereunto set my hand
and caused the great seal of
the state of Oregon to be here
unto affixed, this fifteenth day
of November, 1915.
To Portray: . ' :
The Grace and the winsomeness of
The beauty of Womanhood;
The strength and dignity of Manhood,
And to trace as with a pencil, the ten
. derly pathetic beauty of Old Age.
This is my mission.
I consider it not an unworthy one.
