Phone 135-112 ^ Two More Days in .Which to Contribute Perparations Going Ahead For The Doll and Toy Event Skeduled For Saturday (By Leslie) Volunteers to Santa Claus in Mor gan City are marshalling ranks to scatter cheer to the little poor. Sun shine is needed for the little men and women, who are momentarily expecting the appearance of dear old Santa to descend down the chimney cn Christmas morning. Their little hearts are beating with a "Flutter" in their therished hope that Santa will not overlook them. They are be ginning to sleep with one eye open. Ihey are writing letters to that great hig-hearted and loving white whisker ed man, who with his rein deer is speeding southward with his sleigh ladened with the thousands of good things that will be showered upon the poor kiddies of Morgan City, through the kindly efforts of the King's Daughters, the Review, and their host of liberal contributors. One of fho-happiest days in the cal endar when its possibilities are realj zed, Christmas, on the contrary be comes one of the crudest when it means nothing but an empty day of j disappointment, shattered visions ' and broken dreams to the child of the street, the poverty stricken who has hoped somehow Santa Claus would remember him, the realization | that he has not been remembered creates in the little heart an for which there.is small solace. With the approach of the big day it is the hope of all concerned that every needy child of the community may be remembered through the kind ness of the great number who in the past weeks has contributecTV) freely, to their great expectancy fulfilling their wonderful dream of Christmas day and what it may bring forth. There is more money needed to as sure these children that their Santa Claus will be with them. There re mains but two or three days to make up the required amount. This appeal goes forth to you in the hope that the purse string will relinquish it self long enough to permit a few dimes to encroach into the columns of the Review toward this great mission.Do not hesitate. Look back uj>on the babyhood, boyhood, or girlhood days of your own. Think what Santa meant to you. How sad and disappointed a child you would have been, had you awakened on Christmas morning, in the folds of a freezing temperature, to find an empty stocking in the same position that you had left it the night before. Unmolested by him, who is so great in the eyes of the little ones. Each Ijttle child has a plan. They are thinking of but one being today, that is Santa Claus. Can you consistently stand by and let their hope banish. Act today. Send in a small mite to the fund that is now closing.
