What Do You Want?

TXTHEN the boy passed the baker’s
v * shop on his way to school, he
used to look with longing upon the
display of pies and cakes and resolve
in his heart that if fortune should
ever bless him with means he would
have enough of a feast for once. But
when, In after years, he passed the
same old shop and looked upon the
new treasures of the old window, now
with a pocketful of money, he had
ceased to care for the goodies, and
went on, jingling his useless coins.
What do we want now? Not what
we used to want. Not more pie, not
more candy, not more toys, not even
more money. The old ambitions have
been realized, the old goals have been
reached, we have the power of which
we dreamed, there doesn’t seem to be
anything in sight worth running after,
we look out upon a splendid world
with a falling desire for it, we go on
by an acquired momentum rather than
with zest. Still, we are unsatisfied.
Yet we want something. What is it?
What do we want? What could the
Christmas time bring us of satisfac
How would you like to recover that
lost art of imagination? How would
a large investment in hope pay you?
What would that strange power of be
holding the reality and the loveliness
of a spiritual world, that mysterious
power that some have, mean to you?
If you could be a child again, just for
Christmas Eve, perhaps, you would see
the meaning of the stars that ride so
gloriously upon the billows of space.
You might feel called up and out by
the supreme and satisfying joy that
Christmas signifies.
After all, we may have gained the
world and lost faith, an Immeasurable
loss. Only he who keeps his childlike
ness—not his childishness —knows the
eternal worth of time, the satisfac
tion of that everlasting love that faith
What a Christmas gift that would
be! Was not the old colored preacher
right when he sang, “All I want, all 1
want; all I want is a little more faith
in Jesus”?

First Christmas :
Bq Uannta J. Knock, •

“Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!
Clangs the heavy, deep-toned bell.
And all the world gives back the answer:
Christ is born, and all is well.”
/“VVER nineteen hundred years age
there lived in the little town of
Nazareth a humble carpenter and his
wife, Mary.
At this time the ruler of the Roman
empire, Augustus Caesar, required all
persons to pay taxes for the upkeep
of the kingdom. Joseph was a de
scendant of King David. Although
he was living in Galilee, the law re
quired him to go to Bethlehem in Ju
dea to pay his taxes.
When it was time to pay the trib
ute, Joseph took Mary with' him on
the Journey to Bethlehem. It was a
tiresome journey. They were very
weary when they r euC hed the little
town. Joseph went to the hotel to
get a room where they could rest. But
poor Joseph was disappointed, for so
many other people had come to the
little town that day the rooms were
all taken. No doubt Joseph and Mary
felt lonely and discouraged as night
came on. At last they went to a stable
to find a place to sleep. Here in a
manger the Savior of the World was
This was a very lowly place indeed
for’ the Prince of Peace to be born.
Prophets had been foretelling his com
ing for many years. People were ex
pecting him to come, but in some very
grand way. Some thought he. would
make the kings leave their thrones
and himself be the ruler. But he
came as a sweet, dear little babe.
Now, you w'onder how the people
heard of his birth, in those long, long
ago days when there were no tele
graphs or telephones? Perhaps you
think so important news as this would
be announced publicly by the highest
officials or the richest people in town
and a holiday declared.
But not so. The first news of his
birth was told to people engaged in
a very humble and lowly work.
Methinks it must have been a beau
tiful warm night. Far out on the hills
of old Judea the shepherds were herd
ing their sheep. No doubt they were
talking together about the big crowd
in Bethlehem that evening. Suddenly
there appeared in the sky a bright
light. The shepherds were afraid. An
angel spoke to them and said, “Be
not afraid; I bring you good tidings of
great joy which shall be to all people.”
Then he told them that Jesus had
been born in Bethlehem; that they
would find him, a babe, wrapped in
swaddling clothes lying in a manger
with his mother, Mary.
Suddenly there appeared with the
angel a host of other angels singing,
“Glory to God in the highest and on
earth peace, good will to men.”
After the angels were gone the shep
herds talked over the wondrous news.
Then they hurried away to Bethlehem
to see if it was true. Sure enough,
there were Mary and Joseph and the
little babe, Jesus. They then went out
to tell others.
God also told the news of his gift
to the world by placmg a new star
in the sky. The wise men saw it and
followed its shining rays until they,
too, found the "Babe of Bethlehem.”
These wise men worshiped him and
gave him gifts of gold, myrrh and

New Orleans Times-Picayune Praises
Conduct of Visitors During the
National Convention.
New Orleans is proud and glad to
have had the opportunity to entertain
the American Legion national conven
tion and heartily congratulates San
Francisco upon its capture of the
honor for 1923, according to an edi
torial in the Times-Picayune, a lead
ing New Orleans newspaper, printed
several days after the departure of
the Legionnaires.
“The Legionnaires as a body earned
the good opinions even of those few
Grleanians who because of rumors of
misdoings at Kansas City were slight
ly prejudiced against the gathering.”
the editorial states. “Throughout
American Legion week good humor
and good order prevailed. The rare
Instances of minor rowdyism or
ruffianism served only as exceptions
going to prove the general rule of
splendid behavior—and of these ex
ceptions some, perhaps the majority,
were chargeable to local hoodlums
who took advantage of the fes
tivities to misbehave in the hope that
their offenses would be charged to the
visitors’ account. In so large an as
sembly some impostors, crooks and
evil-doers are almost Invariably found
but the careful work of the Legion
officials and the local police simply
restricted the activities of these un
“Os harmless ‘high jinks’ there was,
of course, a joyous abundance. New
Orleans, with Its carnival traditions,
shared in the fun of it all and rejoiced
in the hilarity which testified that the
lads of the Legion were having a good
time. Os wanton offense and of ma
licious mischief, American Legion
week was remarkably free. The wish
expressed by the Times-Picayune last
Saturday morning—that the Legion
naires would carry to their homes
‘recollections of the convention as
pleasant as those they leave with us’
—came straight from the heart"
In a previous editorial the Times-
Picayune stated:
“The American Legion convention
closed yesterday afternoon will be
long and pleasantly remembered by
New Orleans. Accustomed as this
city is to great conventions and im
pressive parades, the Legion assem
bly and the inspiring review staged
last Wednesday made a distinctive ap
peal. an impression of sturdy Ameri
canism and militant patriotism not
soon to be effaced, and wholly favor
And another editorial in the same
newspaper reads:
"Their visit to us will lead, as we
hope, to« the return of many of these
stalwart young Americans, to live and
grow with us."
