-The Christmas tree given by the
ladies of the A. R. P. Chareh in the
armory on Friday night was in every
respect a great success. The tree
which was a very large one was a mass
of brilliant light- nd interesting look
ing packages, and was a delight to the
crowd- of children. The large and
roomy armory was crowded by young
people and there were a number of
older people also who thoroughly en
joyed the hippiness of the children.
The receipts amounted to about $50
