Many nations set aside days to in- voke Divine thanks for the bountiful blessings of the harvest. In Japan it is the 'New i Tasting Festival,' in Sardinia colorfully clad natives meet at the 'FesMval of the Saviour,' while throughout Europe the plaintive voice of the viol,ins and the rhy,thm of the tam- bourines mark the Gypsy festival wl,th dancing in the streets. In India's Punjab state natives dance the Bhangra at harvest time, while the Swiss flock to the capital city of Berne with their wares. However, it was Colonial America, and the Plymouth Bay Colony where whi~e and red men shared the harvest, exchanged gifts, and gave thanks to ,the Supreme Being --which imprinted 'this holi- day in the minds and hearts of all Americans. Today is a far cry from this historic event--and the munificence of worldly goods bestowed on ,this nation gives us cause to ,take time out from the in:ter-city football clash, to pause .and reflect in the true meaning of Tl~'anksglv- ing day. Let us, l~use, and recall the parable of the good Samari- tan. He found the ~ime to stop, bind up ,the wounds of a man set-upon by, thieves, and paid for the man s shel%er at .the inn. We too, can be good Samar- itans by continuing to share this nation's bounty with the. undernourished, underprivi- leged people of the world.

Fry Last Christmas 'the post of- fice handled more mail than ever before, yet the operation was the most efficient in his- tory. Nationally about 99 percent of the Christmas mall reached its destination before Christmas Eve. ZIP Code use and the co- operation of the public in mailing early were the main reasons for the success. With an even greater volume of mail anticipated 'this year, the public is again being urged to mai,1 early and to use ZIP Code. The following suggestion,~ by Postmaster Earl Fry in re- gard to preparing for the up- coming marling season: Prepare a gif.t l~ist as soon as possible. Be sure to have on hand enough shipping ma- terials: boxes, tape, wrapping paper, etc. Use first class postage on greeting cards. This assures their being forwarded if the recipient has moved or that undeliverable cards wi,ll be re- turned if a return address ~s on the envelope. It is again emphasized that poorly wrapped and loosely packed cartons are the major cause of parcel post damage. Pack cartons tightly by using s, tuffing ~atertal to fill up the empty space around the merchandise. Addre.~s letters, cards and ~ckage~ as clea~y as possible. For the convenience of local patrons, the Kalona Post Of- fice wilt remain open all day, Saturd,ay, December 18.
