Christmas
Christmas day dawned bright and
clear. There was hardly a cloud i
the sky, but it was cold, with a raw
wind, making one appreciate tin
comfort of indoors. The mercury hov
ered in the thirties all day.
There was a Sabbath-like quiet
ness in our town, nd but little traffic
on the highways.
It was a day given over in our en
tire community to home-coming gatli
erings. with such indoor delights a;
opening presents, family dinners am
like happy affairs.
On Christmas eve, at the Methodis
church, between eight and nine
o’clock a program of Christmas music
was given by means of records am
an amplifier. The program was great
ly enjoyed and could be heard fo
the most part all over town. Abou
the midnight hour carols were sung
by a group, who started at the churct.
and wended their way about town
returning to the church for services
and refreshments.

The State chairman emphasized
that the county committees are t.
have more responsibility than in tin
past in outlining the practices fo
which payments will be made in tin
