(lo.) Upper 0** Meinti Thurtdoy, December 23, 1965 NOW ONCE AGAIN, IT'S plad Christmas timo, And Grace inflicts on yon, her rlivine. The wishes are warm though the dix-iiiM-al is rotten, For those far away, but by no means forpntten. Greetings go out to the folks in Alpoiu, I love them all much; and that's no bologna I SANTA'S SYMBOL TO ME is the United States Mail, So I hope all the postmen are hearty and hale. May Christmas rest easy their poor, aching feet, After taking the presents, up down the street. To the guys at the Algona firemen's station, May no alarm interrupt your Yule celebration. FOR THE HUTCHINS, - Harold, Eugene and Irene, I'm wishing a Christmas, the best they have seen. To the Garbetts, the Holts, the Jones, Glen and Faye, The Bournes, and the Bartletts, the Cooks, Pat and Ray, Daus, Hoods, and Crawfords, Irma and Andy, I'm hoping the holidays will be simply dandy ! TO THE GRANDMAS, ESPECIALLY our Clara and Rose, I'm wishing presents in their Christmas hose. And new grandparents who brag with good reason, We hope to join you by next Christmas season I The child of the century, he surely will be, Especially to the Feasters and Father and me. I HOPE THAT SANTA his way has been steering, To former neighbors, Amy and Bill Geering, And Dorweilers, Sorensens, Hudsons and Broesders, (I can't see them now the way that I used ter) And Duttons, Brandows, Seelys, S. and D. Muckey, I hope all their new year days will be lucky. Losses, Becker, Wittkopf, Reillys and tribe, May their holidays all be too good to describe. FOR OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS and each of their spouses, May happiness reign in all of their houses, To the guys and the gals at the UDM shop, I'm so full of good wishes I very near pop. At the library where Kitty Phillips is presiding, May bells of Christmas ring out glad tidings. FOR THE SCHATTSCHNEIDERS, Barb, Gene, Darlene and Ella, I'm hoping Santa's a most generous fella. For Mabel Lane and her husband, Beecher, May joy be a prominent holiday feature. Same goes for Maluegs, Kleins, Nortons and Millers, Kenyons and Klamps, may their socks not lack filler. JINGLE BELLS, JINGLE bells - all the way, To bring Gabrielsons at Sexton a glad Christmas Day. I'd like to stop by with a big holly wreath, For Gades at Whittemore, and Clara and Kyle Keith. I'm wishing plenty of mistletoe kisses, For Don Meyer, Cec McGinnis and each of their Mrs. I'M WISHING JOY IN the year turning new, To Marge Dahl, Dot Smith, to name only twg. And also the Murtaghs, Ferris and Jean Miner, I hope their holidays couldn't be finer, And a fine Christmas ride in a Santa Glaus sleigh, For Bob Laing and Rosie and the Charles McVays. TO BETTY STILLMAN and Jerry the judge, I'm wishing walnuts in their Christmas fudge, As for Nelda Finn and her husband Bill, May Christmas be packed chock full of good will, And the Buchanans - Al, Noma, Ginny and Russ, May the season be festive with gosh, lots of fuss. MERRY CHRISTMAS to the Lindhorsts - Ralph and Lavon, May your season be the happiest you've ever looked on, Happy holidays too for Smith, Mary and Craig, May Santa's pack be so full it will really sag, Greetings also Esther Barton, Margaret Durant, and the Algona lady, Who thinks palms are ugly - 1 mean Evelyn Cady ! NOW I KNOW THERE are hundreds of names I've left out, And to all of you also my good wishes spout. You're not forgotten, it's just at this time, I can't fit everyone into this rhyme. I'm homesick a little, and missing you all, But otherwise having myself quite a ball. "IT CAME UPON A MIDNIGHT CLEAR" The story is old, familiar and dear. The message 1 find, is the very same one, In Iowa's snow or in Florida's sun. Wherever we are we have ample reason, For hearts full of love in this holy season. And to wish for you joy that the holiday brings, For the new year ahead, all good, happy things! GRACE 28C8 Yorktown, Sarasota Fla. MRS.

FOSTER FURNITURE ALGONA, IOWA ST RONG CHURCHES . . Make Strong Communities 'It is written . . . they shall all be taught-of God" f ! '—'Isaiah 54:13 < This is the season of Christmas; the time we take to observe the birthday of Jesus Christ and to remember the importance of the life of Christ upon earth. Christ came to earth with a purpose. His coming was acknowledged by the shepherds and by the Three Wise Men who came from afar. Years later, when Jesus began to teach, some of those who knew him wondered how it was he could say he "came down from Heaven." Was he not the son of Joseph, whose father and mother they knew? Through his great life upon earth, tb'j teachings of his disciples and their followers, men have indeed been "taught of God." But, some men forget — except at Christmas. Let's remember, all our lives, every day of the year.
