Wealth moy have taken wings, yet still there are Clear window panes to glow with candle light; There nrc boughs for garlands, and a tinsel star To tip some little fir tree's lifted height. There is no heart too meavy or too sad, But sonic small gift of love can make it glad And there nre home-sweet rooms where laughter rings, And wo can ting the carols as of old. Along the Eastern hills .a white star swings; There is an ancient story to be told; There are kind words and cheering words to say, Let us be happy on the Christ Child's Day.—Selected. ^^ t Dr. P. B.

Revival in Capital (.Continued from poge one) ing of new products, will make many jobs, Industrial activity, as measured by fhc Associated Pi-ess seasonally ad- ght a Cold ? To help end it sooner, rub throat and chest with justed weekly index, and similar statistical indciators, has recently topped the level of the summer high tide of manufacturing in 1933, to register new peaks for the recovery. This index in November averaged at 83 per cent of the 1929-30 average, compared with 62,7 a year earlier. Residential building was still at only 41.4 per cent of 1929-30, as measured by The Associated Press index, but this was more than double the 18.6 per cent level of November, 1934. The movement of freight, one of the basic ) indicators of the volume .of the nation's business, was 67.6, based on 1929-30 as 100, compared with 61.2 for that month of the previous year. Auto Manufacture Gains One of the most striking gains in recent months has been in automobile production, and this involves an incalculable factor. New models went into production two months earlier than usual this year. As a result, November output was substantially more than double a year previously. A contraseasonal lift given to aggregate industrial activity. The seasonally adjusted index of steel production, for instance, was boosted in November to 71.3 per cent of the 192930 average, compared with 35.6 in that month of 1934. Despite the relatively depressed state of several lines of heavy or capital goods industry, 1935 brought many indications of growing breadth to the recovery movement. Purchasing power was more widely diffused. There was no. such disruption..of the for-* ward' march ns that caused ' by th'e severe drought' in 1934. Fulton, Ark.

Trade in SlighH935 Gain Year Will Close 6 to 15% Ahead of 1934, Authorities Predict By RADEIt W1NGET Associated Press Correspondent NEW YORK—(/P)—Like a cork on the crest of a wave, retail trade rode high in 1935 with the surge of general recovery. The merchandising business entered the year at high tide, post holiday sales carrying dollar value of volume to satisfying peaks, and the Easter shopping period emptied shelves in many cities. By the time that buying wave had subsided, retailers were moving sum- i rner goods to vacation-bound ctistom- ! cr.s ' There was in industry a mid-year let down which was reflected in the stores in most sections, but after the independence day holiday industrial wheels began to hum with a sharper rhythm, and merchants profited from fatter payrolls. Fall was n trying time for many. . Wot weather, dust storms, floods and j other hindrances cut into retail trade ' substantially, but even so there was no nation-wido recession. Some cities experienced large sales while others dropped well below the corresponding period of the previous year.

The new military campaign has been carried out under the pretext of delimiting the "ambiguous" boundary between Manchoukuo and Mongolia. A recent border clash at the fron- 1 tier post of Balum-Bersun, in which several Mongolian soldiers were killed , by Japanese and Manchoukuo invad- | ers, was regarded as merely the first incident to attract outside notice. (Moscow dispatches early Sunday quoted reports from Khabarovsk, reaching the Russian capital through official Soviet channels, ns stating the Japanese army in Manchoukuo was considering a plan to invade Outer Mongolia.' Articles in the Nationalist press, notably the newspaper Miyako, indicated tha at strong militarist-imperialist ; faction in Japan envisions extension of the campaign as fa.s as expulsion of Soviet influence from Sinkiang, as well as Outlier Mongolia. Into such an effort the militarists, it ! appeared, would draw China, invoking the latter's 'long-ineffective sovereignty over those vast outlying provinces as un excuse for use of Japanese military power—ostensibly on China's behalf and in an alliance 1 with China—to oust Soviet penetration. Thus fur there is no evidence that the civilian element in Tokio's government approves such ambitions, although Miyako asserts Foreign Minister Koki Hirotn intends to negotiate in Nanking and Pulping for such a Sino- Jupancse anti-Soviet alliance.
