HOOVER'S 1930 THANKSGIVING PROCLAMATION. "Our country has many causes for thanksgiving," the Proclamation reads. "We have been blessed with distinctive evidence of divine favor. As a nation we have suffered far less than other peoples from the present world difficulties. We have been free from civil and industrial discord. The outlook for peace between nations has been strengthened. In a large view we have made progress upon the enduring structure of our institutions. The arts and sciences that enrich our lives and enlarge our control of nature have made noble advances. Education has been further extended. We have made gains in the prevention of disease and in the protection of childhood." Hoover enjoins the people of the United States "to remember that many of our people are in need and suffering from causes beyond their control, and...that a proper celebration of the day should include that we make sure every person in the community, young and old, shall have cause to give thanks for our institutions and for the neighborly sentiment of our people."
