Friday evening Miss Jewel McGuire
and Mrs. Armour \Vhite invited Les w
Amies Club to a beautiful Xmas party of
which was held in the home of Mrs. In
S. L. Houston. The living room was
lovely with Xmas decorations, holly I
wreaths, poinsettas, etc. A Xmas
tree was very pretty with its bells, W
candles, tinsel and candy baskets, *c
while a nearby table and chairs were
loaded with dainty packages-the C(
gifts of the club members to each other. flu
The hostesses presented each mem- 01
ber with a handsome card table. The
"club babies," Misses Ruth Louise
Theus, Martha Caroline Goff and Faye
Wimberly were not forgotten, but each
found a gift from Santa Claus. Mr. ,I
f Elmer Davies, who arrived on the late tt
r afternoon train was prevailed upon to al
remain and play Santa Claus, which b.
he did very gracefully. Mrs. Dallas t
Rogers assisted Mrs. White and Miss W
eMcGuirc in serving tutti frutti ice ~
cream and cocoanut cake.
The Baptist WV. M. S. had a very
eunique and pleasant entertainment last
Thursday afternoon at the church-a
"Capsule" party. This was the cul
amination of an idea which has .been

kmeeting of the W. M. S. at that time,
sit was arranged to give member of the
Iisociety a capsule containing the name
of another member, as an object of
special kindness and attention, and at
SChristmas to have a tree. The idea
kworked beautifully and many were the
Sfloral offerings, boxes of candy, cakes,
~'and other expressions of the thought
h ulness, which were exchanged, iin
'cognito. Each member was supposed
to put on two presents on the tree,
:'one for their known and one for their:
:1unknown "Capsule." Of course two
was not the limit however, and the
ftree was a 'aihing of beauty and a joy

HEART INTEREST IN MOVIES
In filming the combat of David and
Goliath on its original terrain, the holy
land, the movies have taken the liberty
of introducing a love scene immedi
ately after the duel, observes the Bos
ton Globe. We must have "heart in.
terest." And Bible stories do not In
variably supply it. They often seem
strangely preoccupied with thoughts
as remote from sex as religious aspira
tions, moral heroism, self-conquest or
even plain robust adventure of life
and limb. This, of course, disqualifies
these stately and sublime legends for
duty as scenarios-unless a little in
genuity is brought to the resume.
Lacking in sentiment though Moses.,
Elijah, Isaiah and Amos may be, their
careers are stormy enough to admit
of the Introduction of sentimental in,

appointment in love that drove them
into their careers as prophets and re.
formers, and that all they needed was
the love of some sweet young girl to
have induced them to settle down and
live a happy home life. One suusects
