There’s “food for thought” in a Thanksgiving Day visit to your house of worship
T O D A Y , F A R T O O M A N Y of us think of Thanksgiving in terms of food and football — overlooking the fact that there is so much more food offered than that which is placed on the family table. For there is much “food for thought” as well.
Thanksgiving is a time to take stock of life’s blessings . . . to take a bright-eyed child on your knee and talk to him, or her, of things that really matter. . . of their great American heritage and the promise it holds for them. It’s a time to take your whole family to your church or synagogue for an hour of prayer and thanks that will make your holiday mean so much more.
True, our lives are far removed from those of the Pilgrim Fathers. We live in the uncertainty of the Atomic Age. But we also live in the abundance of 20th Century America. Has any one of us so much or so little that he cannot find room or time in his heart to say thanks?
This Thanksgiving, why not take your family to your church or synagogue? Wherever you are . . . whatever your beliefs may be . . . take time to offer your word of thanks.
FIND THE STRENGTH FOR YOUR LIFE . . . WORSHIP TOGETHER THIS WEEK!

Philco-Ford to Kick Off Hip Pocket Records, HP Portable Radio-Phonograph
PHILADELPHIA — Philco-Ford Corporation will kick off the promotion this fall of its new 45- r.p.m. Hip Pocket (HP) Records and mini radio-phonographs with a four-page, four-color ad insert in six trade papers and magazines. HPs will be featured in a separate consumer magazine campaign.
Hip Pocket Records, with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of 69 cents, will have a best selling popular song on each side. They are flexible, wafer thin, pure vinyl and are only 3 7/8 inches in diameter.
Philco-Ford is featuring the records in combination with a solid-state radio-phonograph (Model 1376) weighing less than two pounds and listed at $24.95. Model 1376 has a six-transistor radio and a two-speed, single-play phonograph. It is battery-powered and AC adaptable.
The four-page advertisement will appear in Home Furnishings, Merchandising Week, Cash Box, Record World and Billboard.
Martin Grill, consumer spokesman for Philco-Ford, said the consumer magazine schedule promoting Hip Pocket Records will include full page advertisements in black and white in the November issues of American Girl, Co-ed, Ingenue, Scholastic Roto and Seventeen; and in the December issue of Teen.
The advertising campaigns will be backed up by major sales promotion and publicity efforts in prime markets, Grill said. END
