Next Thursday (today) has been
set aside as a general day of thanks
giving and everyone in this country
will give thanks that they are so
fortunate as to live in the United
States instead of war-torn Europe.
George Washington, in 1787, pro
claimed Thursday, November 27, to
be observed as Thanksgiving Day,
but until the Civil war it was a
