Bench Thanksgiving Dinner
"A bench in Lafayette Park opposite the White House is the setting for a unique Thanksgiving Dinner Thursday.

Corn Harvest
"Thanksgiving Harvest, 1943/Thanksgiving, which in more carefree, perhaps more careless, pre-war days meant to many Americans little more than a delicious roast turkey or a thrilling football tussle, will be observed for the second time during World War II next Thursday within an atmosphere of sobriety nearer to the spirit of the early colonists, who after the first harvest in 1621 set aside a day for humble prayer. The war, which has helped bring an appreciation of this to the Thanksgiving dinner table, provides thus an awakening. This awakening may be the Thanksgiving harvest of 1943. A symbol of the fruitfulness of American soil, is this photo of farmers at work harvesting corn."
