Why do we observe Christmas? It i
the custom of the people to obserte i
4& the time, or in memory of the time
when the Son of God made His adyen
into the world. Turn to Luke and rea
the second chapter, giving an accoun
of Vis coming to bring peace and goo
will, to all men. It is a good time tU
settle all old differences where the5
exist and to begin the "New Year'
How should we observe ' Christmas
In memory of God's gift of His Son t<
the world: It people would think abou
it they would not want to drink an
frolic and go into sin and unseemly con
duct, but to observe the occasion as a
time of worship; not reveling, but ir
pious thought and sober conversation,
When we send our Christmas gifts t<
our friends we ought to think of God's
best gift to us all. He gave His only
begotten son to die for us that we mighi
live in Heaven forever. Let us believe
on Him, trust Him and serve Him.
EVERY week The Sentinel receives
one or two long advertisements from
the Willys-Overland Co.. makers of
automobiles and beggars of free adver.
tising in country newspapers, and they
want us to run these advertisements
free under the guise of news articles.
Their begging tactics always made us a
little angry before, but this week they
made us laugh. This week this com
pany sent us a note which read as fol
lows: " Understanding the national
shortage of print paper, the Willys
Overland Co . to co-operate with its
newspaper friends in space economy,
has made marked reduction in the length
of its publicity articles. " And with
this note came about a dozen la'ge
sheets of typewritten advertising which
would have filled up at least one page
of The Sentinel, and theyv wanted us to
print it free! "Co-operate!" We!. if
that's co-operation, on account of the
high cost of building automobiles, The
Piclens Sentinel is willing to co-operate
wvith the Willys-Overland Co. by ailow
ng theI to give us a runabout instead

Wants BetterTelephone Service
I want to want to call the attention
of those that are concerned in the tele
phones of Pickens and Anderson coun
ties or the telephones that connect at
Pickens, Ealey an Liberty as central
points. I think it best for the directors
or stockholders of the various lines that
connect with the above central points,
should have a meeting called somewhere
in the county to discuss the telephone
service and to organize so we may get
better service. If possible we can meet
at Eakley or Piekens, which may be the
best suited to all concerned. Letevery
telephone line that goes out from the
above places have a meeting, designate
someone to attend such a meeting. I
would hke for each one that is desirous
of such a meeting to write me a card
stating where you would like for the
meeting to be held so I can call it at the
place where the majority says. If you
want to call me over the telephone my
number is Easley 3503. Hoping this
matter will be considered at once.
thinking as I do, that the telephone
service can be bettered.
