Thanksgiving at the home of St. John's College president Christopher Nelson will not involve watching football on the big screen Instead, tomorrow's gathering of 50 will bring Mark Twain, Walt Whitman and Abraham Lincoln - or at least their memorable words - to the table. The occasion, perfectly suited to the Annapolis college, calls for each guest to read an excerpt or two from great American speeches, statements, poetry or literature. Most of the invitees are liberal arts students staying on campus this week because their families are in American cities or foreign countries too far away to visit for the short holiday.
