W Presi dent and Mrs. Coolidge, as has been their custom the five holiday sea boiis they have passed in the White House, will again set the example for the nation this year by observ ing a quiet home Christmas. A sparkling Christmas tree, (mall but gaily decorated, in the Blue Room: wreaths in the win dows: lights shining out across the broad lawn on Christmas Eve; the on of the house coming home. These simple but appealing rites, celebrated in millions of American homes, will be duplicated on the last Christmas President and Mrs. Coolidge will spend in the White House.

Army women, according to cus tom, will see that all children of the posts are provided with toys and candy. Christmas in the navy will be ob served in various ways according to the locations of the different hips. Sailors are noted for put ting on "high Jinks" when given the opportunity and many an amus ing vaudeville will be staged aboard battleships Christmas day. Forty-two thousand Christmas bags, containing all sorts of useful articles, were shipped by the Amer ican Red Cross some weeks ago to men of the army, navy and marine i corps serving in distant posts. .Many or me troops on auiy in warm countries have regimental trees outdoors on Christmas Eve, when the bags, made and filled by Red Cross volunteer workers in chapters all over the country, are distributed. Some of the children of the em bassies and legations this year will spend their first Christmas in America. Among them are Ferdi nand and Nella Vcverka, children of the new minister from Czecho slovakia.

ARTIFICIAL HUMUS IS MADEON FARMS Process Is Inexpensive and Available to All Farmers Washington, Dec. Z0 The farmer has turned to 'modern sci ence for solutions of his humus problems. Experiments by H. W. Warner of the National Fertiliser associa tion are declared to prove that an artificial humus can be made from leaves, grass cuttings, weeds and other waste miterials of vegetable origin. The process is inexpen sive and available to every person who tills land. Last year Warner planted rye. as late as November, as a base for his artificial products. By the fol lowing April he had several inches of top growth which he cut and piled with various farm and gsr den wastes. Between the layers mid on top of the pile he sprinkled a commercial preparation known as "Adco," or. In lieu of that, a mixture of ammonium sulphate and fine-ground limestcne, and kept the pile moist. In short time he had a well-rooted composition, which he plowed into the soil with good results. Manufacturers of fertilizer al ways have recognised the impor tance of humus in the soil. They describe it as soil "life." Plant food may be obtained In numerous commercial forms, but humus alone ha kept the land lu good physical condition. They know, too. that keeping a good stock of decaying organic matter in the soil Is the most dif ficult and often the least satlsfae tory phase of the farmer's soil problems.

This mixture Is used at the rate of ahovt one pound for eight or 10 pounds of dry straw or leaves. ii:xxsylvama scores win Philadelphia.

READ HERALD CLASSIFIED ADS FIND EVIDENCE OF Possessed Surprisingly High Degree ol Culture N Washington, Dec. 20 OP) Frown refuse heaps and ruined huts that once were villages on the shores of St. Lawrence Island and vicinity along the northern P.ering sea coast have yielded new evidence this summer of the surprisingly high degree of culture possessed by the Eskimos who lived in that desolate region 300 to S0O years ago. Thus, after disging deeper thar ever before into the remote past of Eskimo ' life in Alaska, the Smithsonian scientists who ar conducting the first systematic American investigation of the eth nology and archeology of that race find themselves in the somewhat paradoxical situation of being seemingly farther than ever from one of theii objectives, definite knowledge of its origin and spread in North America. Henry B. Collins, pr., assistant curator of the division of ethnolo gy of the National Museum, who has conducted the Investigation of eld Eskimo village sites for the last two years, returned from 'his summer's work with more than SO crates of skeletons, objects of art, ornaments, utensils and weapons. Mr. Collins believes that they are the most ancient objects yet unearthed relating to Eskimo cul ture In Alaska and that they- link the early St Laurence Islanders very definitely with the Siberian FIGHTS LAST MGHT By th Aaouciated Pre&a. .
