hat the sorrowful mother could give
was Santa Claus must have lost his r
ray for I am certain that ho did notf
Intend to miss you Still that did
lot satisfy the childish hearts for
Christmas without the visit of Santa
Claus is not Christmas
The Good Fellow movement which
was Inaugurated last year in ChI
AgO has spread irapldy over the en
ire country and now Santa Claus en
Mially visits thoutands of homes that 1
rare overlooked in the years gone

or the holldayp that they deserved
Out this year every Good Fellow
In Paducah will have an opportunity
