It's Thanksgiving. That's the way the early Pil- Virginians, depending on your historical point of view- did things. They labored in1 the summer to .bring in' the crop, then, when the wild geese began to fly in the cold dawn hours and the winds, growing stranger by the day, began to ruffle the waters of the streams and the dried leaves choked the paths in the forest, they gathered in the crops and waited for the ordeal of winter. There was a pause, when all 'done, before the first snows and in that pause the people, tod, stopped to give thanks to God and to celebrate for the things for which they were thankful. Thus it is in Ada. The first blasts of winter have shaken the trees, but the sun has beea shin- ing during this week and the vague reminders of summer still are with us. Traditional In this traditional setting, Ada prepares for a Thanksgiving 'that is about as traditional as can :be found. The churches have ar- ranged a united service in the evening and many individual con- gregations have special plans for the morning. Then, for most families, .it's home to traditional turkey din; nefZtOhe. There'f a football game. Many, a bouquet of chrysanthemums will be sported on many a fair' lady's sweater -during that contest.. Or, if you're of a modern.mind, there's a football game from afar on television. Union Service The union Thanksgiving service of the Ada ministerial alliance will be at p.m. It'll be held' in a Baptist church with the ser- mon from a Methodist minister. Kev. Herman Ging of. First Methodist Church will deliver 'the message from the pulpit in the auditorium of the First Baptist Church. Other ministers from other churches in the city will take part. Similar united services are planned in communities in the Ada area. There are many special Thanks- giving services planned by indi- vidual churches in the area. Rev. Charles Conner of First Lutheran Church will preach on the Thanksgiving theme at 10 a.m. Thursday.. .Thanksgiving hymns wUl be featured in the service. Don Gant will be organist and Geary Schwartz acolyte. Foodstuffs Offered "Offerings'in consisting of foodstuffs will be brought to a special service at St. Luke's Episcopal Church. Rev. John Ashby will celebrate the com- (Continued on Page Two) Bill Peck Dies In California A. "Bill" Peck, former well- known county resident, died Tues- day evening in Los Angeles. Calif.

Survivors include two sons, Hu bert and Harding, and one daugh ter, Mrs. Glenda Fox, all of Cali- fornia; two. sisters, Mrs. Clyde Rucker and Mrs. -Mayme Tilley, both of Ada; a brother, Ernest, Waco, Tex., and a sister-in-law, Mrs. Maud Peck, 'Pauls cerned. (NEWS Staff Photo) Foxy Coyote's Thankful-He Already Had Turkey Dinner _, m 'i v" n i. By BOB-HEATON '.-Come Thanksgiving, Jack Me-' Phetridge, local government trapper, may be having .hambur- ger for diner or coyote. The coyote's already had- his Thanksgiving dinner. McPhetridge's turkey. The trapper caught the coyote last spring. The animal, then only'a pup, was brought to Mc- Phetridge's home, near Ada. Jack', even gave the coyote a name "Colonel." If' Colonel- had been an ordinary story' might have ended right there. But, he proved himself a gist, -escape artist, and down- right scallywag; The coyote immediately es- caped. For some reason, he hung around to see what the trapper -would do, and-'maybe have a few laughs.'' McPhetridge snared 'the wily coyote again '.with his bare hands.' Colonel escaped again. This time-it required-the services of the trapper's dog to'run down the coyote. Saturday, under cover pof night, Colonel performed the' .-'-ultimate far-knavery..- He ate McPhetridge's fattened Thanksgiving- turkey. A mesh fence stood between 1 the coyote and the'gobbler; Colo- apparently hadn't'dug 'under or climbed'over the'fence. But. somehow he ate the-tur key. maybe.-he !used some sort of coyote magic. .Or, trickery known only'to rascals. In any case, it -was- a pleasanl 'early Thanksgiving-for- Colonel. If he Should still be around next .year at.., this; time, .it's 'money that'the turkey'will be .well out of'reach. Hunters Bag Nine Deer In Allen Area The first day of deer season saw at least nine deer bagged before noon. Five deer were reported shot at the Ned Biffle ranch, .near Allen, and four were reported' at the hunter's check station in Allen. Largest of those reported was an eleven point buck', bagged by Gordon Brown, Oklahoma City. The deer weighed 135 pounds, hog dressed. Brown shot the animal early Wednesday- morning.'- Ruben Huffstutlar, Allen, was first to. get his deer. He parked in the Biffle ..ranch''barnyard, walked less than a hundred yards, and shot a seven point buck. It was .the shortest deer-hunt I've ever been Huffstutler remarked. Also claiming trophies on. open- ing day were: Bardie Todd.'Ada, with a'five pointer, Harold cum, Pauls with point buck, Ned Biffle, also bagged a five pointer, and Eandall. Tulsa, who shot a .'nine point, 122 pound buck: Few things in the world are more spacious than the room we have for improvement. (Copr. Gen. Fea, Corp.)
