How did the turkey reach safety?

      Here are two puzzles in one. In the first place, you will see that the turkey is safe for this Thanksgiving at any rate. The question is, How did he reach "safety?"
      You will see six paths, numbered 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. He had his choice of these paths, and luckily he chose the right one, the one in which there are no obstacles in his path to "safety." See if you can find the path he chose. Of course, you will see that he could not pass a carving knife or a hatchet or a cook, or any of his other enemies. Find the path which is free of any of these enemies, and tell which path it is, by giving the number of the path.
      When you have found the right path you will also find that it contains a number of letters. Using all the letters, see if you can combine them in such a way as to give one of the principal requirements of a successful Thanksgiving dinner. Write these letters in the order that they appear, and then, below, write them transposed so as to spell the word or words you want. You do not need to use all of the letters, but, the person who can use the most wins.
