National Geographic News It's Thanksgiwng again. ,ind Sarah Lesepha Buell lime might haw,, se(',ond theughts abeut it. I1 was her idea in the firm place. making Thanksgiving an official. nationaL holiday. And it was thanks l() her years of badgering governors and finally Abraham Lincoln that it came, to be2thongh, today, perhaps not quite what she had in mind. The modern Thanks,iving seems to be that annual holiday when we pay the supreme aLL-American salute to overeating, when go-get-'em stores are well into their Christmas sales, when television footbaLl imposes a trance on all those already stupefied at the dinner table. Some Americans even find time to give thanks, usually as the famiR gathers around the groaning board. That's what Mrs. Hale had in mind for the day, giving thanks. Tradition Plus But just as turkey is the day's traditional attraction. Thanksgiving through the years has been stuffed with politics, commercialism, and indifference to the date, the National Geographic Society says. In 1621. the Pilgrims set the style for future Thanksgivings with their now4amous celebration at Plimouth in the Colony of Massachusetts. They fed enormously on wild turkeys, geese, ducks, wood pigeons, pa'rtridge, beechnut stuffing, home- brewed beer, wine from wild grapes. lobster, oysters, codfish, eelm vemson. pumpkins, corn bread and succotash. They had unexpected guests drop in for dinner: 90 Indians. They carried on with fun and sport, such as target contests between colonists with firearms and Indians with bows and arrows, and Miles Standish awed the assembly by parading his 20-man regiment back and forth. They celebrated for three days, beginning each morning with prayers. Correction Due to a mistake in a press release from the US. Army Mrs. John C Edwards address was mistakenly listed in last week's issue as 211 West Road, Glenville. She is living with her husband at Apt. 308 94-249 Waikle Rd.. Waipahu, Hawaii.
