You can bring happiness this
Christmas to children in hospitals,
orphanages and in the families
of the unemployed by refurbishing
the toys your own children have
outgrown or no longer enjoy. In
many communities, civic and fra
ternal groups have organized pro
grams for this purpose.
The easiest way to make old
toys in basically good condition
look like new again is with color
ful quality enamels, and here are
some tips to help you do the job.
First and most important of all
be sure “vou use only suitable
enamels, particularly those that
contain less .“an 1 per cent of
lead. While mos: enamels meant
for interior use con‘ain no harm
ful ingredients, be sure to tell
your paint dealer that you will
be painting toys. He will sell you
the right product. Under no cir
cumstances use outside paint on
toys or children’s furniture.
Kids Like Color
Bear in mind that chilcren pre
fer strong, bold colors, the pri
maries; red, yellow and blue, the
bright secondaries; orange, green,
purple. It takes a more sophisti
cated taste to enjoy pastel and less
lively darker shades. They also
like the shininess of gloss enamel,
Wash the toy with detergent to
remove finger marks and other
soil. If old finish is glossy, it
should be dulled with sandpaper,
so new finish will adhere better.
Any cracks or holes should be |
filled with water putty or plastic
wood which should be permitted
to dry before sanding smooth.

! Popular Gi
‘Popular Gift
| The poinsettia is the traditional
Christmas plant, yet an upsurge
in the popularity of indoor gar
dening has brought a number of
flowering plants into the gift pic
ture. Flowering plants in porous
clay pots that preserve their
. health and beauty will highlight
| many a gift list this season.
Among the popular pot plants is
the Jerusalem cherry. Its round,
' red fruit is especially appropriate
| for the holiday season. It needs
| bright light and likes a cool tem
! perature no higher than 55 de
| grees at night for best results,
( although it does admirably even
! with a 65 degree night tempera
! ture. If the plant is allowed to
i wilt or if cooking gas fumes fill
i the air, the fruit will drop.
| Cyclamen
l The cyclamen is a handsome
! plant even when not in bloom,
| but the blossoms are breathtaking
: —like Venetian glass exquisitely
i formed in the shape of butterflies
| that are white, red, pink, laven
| der, rose, maroon. This needs a
‘ cool 55 degree night temperature
too. Water is safer from the base
of the clay pot so the crown is not
over-moistened, thus inviting rot.
Azaleas are popular. There are
both tender kinds that must be
brought indoors each winter, and
hardy kinds that can be plunged
clay pot and all out in the
garden permanently next spring. |
} The tender kinds are like minia- |
| ture trees in shape. The hardy |
| ones branch out closer to the
| ground like shrubs. Your nursery, !
I garden center, or florist can tell
! you whether the one you select is '
hardy or not. ’
Lasting Beauty I
| Primroses have blossoms that
| look like pastel Christmas can
i dles. Select plants with lots of
' buds so you will have a profusion
of bloom over many weeks. New
{ buds will continue to develop if
plants are watered and fed regu-
I larly and if temperature in the
| room is below 65 degrees at night. -
,‘ The Christmas pepper is han
| dled much the same as the Jeru- |
| salem cherry. Among smaller
; plants, kalanchoe and African vio
lets are tops for Christmas. A
white flowering African violet in
a red clay pot, dressed up with
a bright red how seems ideally I
suited for Christmas. And the
kalanchoe’s brilliant orange-red
blossoms sparkle like tree lights. ;
Both plants are good long-term
investment for any gardener.
!State Is Preparing

New Highway Map
i The State Roads Commission's
{1964 ecdition of the Maryland Of
{ ficial Highway Map will honor the
150th anniversary of the writing
of the Star Spangled Banner.
The Commission has authorized
Iprinu'ng of 400,000 copies of the
imap and awarded a contract for
| printing to the A. C. Hoen Com
pany of Baltimore at an amount
of $28220. That is a unit cost of
[7.5 cents per map, lowest unit rate
‘in recent years. '
! The principal side of the map
jwill be substantially the same at
| this year’s, employing pastel colors
"for Counties and depicting Express-
I\\‘u_\'s in grecen, primary highways
|in red, secondary roads in blue,
and connecting County roads in
' gray.
' Also on the principal side will be
i the inserts of the Baltimore and
‘\\'ushinglun regions.
The reverse side has been chang
lcd radically. |
There is a small map of the state
showing many historic shrines, and
points of interest.
’ Much of the reverse side of the
map is given over to full-¢olor

Appliance Gift |
! |
Should Please |
To make a hit with an appli- |
ance gift, think first of the needs |
of the recipient. |
Too often, gift buyers make the |
mistake of selecting what they |
themselves would like or need. ‘
An electric fry pan is a practical
gift—unless there is already one !
in the family. An electric can |
opener is usually a fine gift—but :
it’s not too much appreciated by |
. the family that uses little canned |
foods or has no place to put the |
appliance. E
A portable stove may be a good
gift for an apartment dweller, yet
will have little value to the family |
which boasts a thermostatically
tonirolled xance. L

ls Educated,
Refailer Says
It will be a bolder, yet more
realistic type of male shopper
who will haunt lingerie depart
ments and perfume counters this
Christmas season, according to
an Allentown, Pa. retailer who
conducted his own survey.
The survey shows that the aver
age man will be looking for dainty
and intimate items—without
blushing when the salesgirl asks
what size. Man’s greater interest
and knowledge of women’s fash
lons account for part of this |
thange in habits, Hess says. I
Realistic |
Another survey revelation I
shows that men will be shopping ,
more realistically. Besides the |
romantic ‘“must’’ items men buy |
for their lady folk, such as French
perfume, lacy lingerie and up
holstered jewel and candy boxes,
this year they will buy more
“bread and butter’” items such
as practical ready-to-wear ap
parel, household appliances, cook
ing utensils, home furnishings and
garden supplies. !
The survey found that the men ‘
folk will know exactly what they
want, what the wife needs around
the house or for herself and ex
actly what she has been wanting |
for a long time—but there will be |
some surprises. ! ]
Some Surprises
Some of the surprises will be |
cocktail dresses which the male |
shopper will buy for his lady and |
the man will know the size dress
she wears and the color she pre- I
fers. When it comes to perfume, |
the male shopper will demand i
recognized scents and the favorite |
ones of their ladies, not just any |
perfume the saleslady suggests. ‘

One Day This
Week In Oakland
Christmas shopping is about!
over, and the true spirit of Christ-l
mas will be abroad beginning{
Christmas Eve. About six o'clock!
in the evening the parked (‘arsl
along the street, and in the park
ing lots, will begin to thin out, a|
few last minute shoppers will hur
ry into the store for an almost for-l
gotten carton of flash-bulbs or to
have the pharmacist check their‘
flash camera to insure its being in
working order for Christmas morn-‘
ing. Out of town visitors will be|
buying a box of candy or a toy,;
there will be a few harried-looking |
men waiting for their last-minute !
purchases to be gift wrapped. The'
store clerks still on duty will be
hurriedly taking the last of thel
Christmas merchandise and bright
glitter out of the show windows
and replacing them with Season
| Greetings signs. Mr. Glaze will
start to sweep up the debris of
odds and ends of gift wrappings
|and empty boxes scattered about
| the floor. The Christmas carnival
of color and tinsel and shopping
is ending for another year and the
true celebration of Christmas be
gins to make itself felt. Everyone
completes his last tasks and hur
ries home to the warmth of fam
After my tree is trimmed and
the presents piled underneath it
I will go to the midnight service
lut our church. In contrast to the
weeks of preparation and excite
ment the celebration of the serv
ice will be calm and restful to us
kneeling at prayers, standing and
| singing familiar, joyful, fervent
| Christmas hymns.
I We didn’t used to have mi(lnight|
| services at the Methodist church |
Il attended when I was a boy, back |
iin St. Clair county, Michigan. My
| first experience with a midnight
| Christmas Eve service was when
'l was invited to visit a classmate
over Christmas. He lived in French |
‘qubcc. Canada. His name \\'asl
Armand and he was the only son|
lin the family, but he had eight|
sisters. That Christmas Eve it was|
a blowing, moonless night and the |
snow was packed on the roads. It|
| was so cold that the snow squeaked
lundvr your boots when you
{ walked. Tightly packed into a
| large, ancient automobile, we drove
|to the church in the village. The
| service was spoken in the provin
;(-c‘s native French tongue, and in
iLatin— both of which languages |
| were equally unintelligible to me.
| There was a cadence, a not un
familiar pattern to the dcvotion.l
but for the most part I made little
attempt to follow it closely but
permitted myself to muse and con
template the significance of the
celebration. The music was beau
tiful, the CHhristmas hymns the
! same as ours, but in the French
’languago. When the service ended
1 felt refreshed and at complete
Ipeace with the world and myself.
IThc rough little village church
seemed the most holy place that
|could renew and give promise of
a better, more peaceful world.
I After the service, we went back
to the home of my friend, into the
Ihouse with its mistletoe and the
opening of presents and Armand’s
‘eight sisters and papa and mama
|lau;,{hing and everyone talking and
: shrieking and then . . . food. The
| dining room table was spread with
| several kinds of cheese, a ham,
'sliced fowl, hot boiled potatoes,
red and white wines, cold cider,
land pitchers of milk. Have you
ever noticed how hungry you are
after a very joyous or deeply mov
ing experience that makes you
feel good? Everyone ate and
talked and it was a mixture of
French and English and laughter.
It was three or four o'clock in the
morning before we finally fell in
to bed to sleep long and soundly.
It was late the next morning be
fore we were aroused to dress and
greet the cousins and aunts and
uncles who came to call.
Eventually we left the house to
return the visits, driving about the
village calling upon families and
friends, too. I
Christmas is a joyous time ini
every Christian land, and is cele
brated in the manner of each fam
ily’s custom. Christmas is a time
to pray and a time to marvel at
the miracle of birth and to I‘ejoice|
in the ever renewed promise of
peace. Christmas is a time to give
’and to share and to be glad to be
-alive. It is a most fitting way to
lusher in the new year. |
