The .best Christmas story I have read th'is'CKrlalmns, or any Christmas, it seems to me, Is entitled, "'Home For 1 Christmas," by Lloyd C. Douglns, Hie author of ^'Magnificent Obsession" and Light. Just as human nnd Jien'utifully expressive ns either of the 'two named books, . . . A Christmas party I would like 1o have attended—the one given' at Cal- lamter, Ontario, Canada, with the Dionhe quintuplets us hostesses. It would indeed-be-a wonderful sight to see five little chubby sisters make merry over their Santo Chuis. I don't wohder at the smeet smile that always adorns* the. face of-their Patron Saint, Dr.' Dafoe One of our first impressions in this column was the suggestion for a campaign toward the abatement of unnecessary noises, such as the prolonged whistling ._of our incoming and out going trains, the screech of the out of place siren, open automobile cut-outs arid lengthy blowing of. auto horns etc., etc. I. wonder how marty of you are.ready to agree with me, that "we tire on the Way?' nnd give thanks for what hafe been accomplished.

One viewing the beautifully lighted Christmas trees, and oilier pleaming 6iU dofir symbols dedicated to Christendom's nativity In neatly every home in ^ our city during the past week nnd think of the thousands of them springled through all the cilifis and towns and villages from Maine. to California and from Oregon to Florida ,will strip and think how short a time 'has pnSsed since the lighting by electricity of the first community tree sot up in Mmlison Square Now York in 1912, as the twilight faded toward dnrkncES, (ho chimes of the Metropol- ilnn Tower clanged jubilee, nnd the church bells all over the city, rnng high, rang low in n mighty chorus. When the darkness fell the Parsifal call thrilled from n battery of trumpets and the Star of Bethlehem flashed out from the very top of the tree, which presently thereafter blazed out at n composite jewel of many colors. The decorations may bo simple or tlavorate, cost much of little, according to' the purse and the ambition of the decorator. But the note; remains tho Christmas note, even when all ihe artfitl aids, of electricity are used to elaborate tho harmony. And the whole thing has got to be a nation-wide phenomenon. Ever since IfllZ, there lias been '& great tree lighted up in Madison Square, and every Christmas since there have been hundreds of such illuminated Christmas trees throughout the Innd. ... A very impressive article in ' the Friday issue of the Arkansas Gazelle j reads: "Store Folks Breath Sighs of I Relief as Few Exchange Gifts."—The writer was the least bit curious to know if that had been the experience of our merchants, so we took a census of Ihc down-town places of business that had enjoyed a big Christmas trade, and the answer was almost unanimous as follows: "Wo had a splendid business, with the quietest December 2Glh, as far as exchange, in the history of our business."—All report good business for the day after Christmas, with few exchanges, all of which goes to prove, that, we are either a more contented people, or .gave more attention to our purchases, or are more appreciative of tho thought instead of the gift, any way you view it, it all seems to me a strong argument for the "New Deal" or something that has been put into the hearts of our people within the last year or so. ... rtHfr-A-4»» Misses Meris Bonner and Marjorie Butler of Spring Hill, La., are holiday guests of Miss Rose Elizabeth England. Mr, and Mrs. John Hntlcy and attractive little daughters, Lenora and Katherine of Warren, are guests of Mrs. Hatloy's mother, Mrs. Cora Stagg.s and other relatives. o Miss Marie Williams entertained a group of her young friends at a very delightful Christmas dinner parly on Friday evening at the home of her aunties, Misses Marie and Nannie Purkins on East Second street. The Christmas motif was very charmingly oberved in the table decorations nnd covers were laid for twelve. The O. H.

MON. 6- TUES. 3 Marx Brothers on Screen Sunday "A Night at the Opera" Reported to Be Their Greatest Film Those Merry Madcaps, the Marx Brothers—Groucho, Chico nnd Hafpo —spent Iwo years in preparation for the filming of their latest comedy, "A Night at the Opera." which shows Sunday. Monday and Tuesday at the Saenger Theater. It is worth waiting for! Here is a picture that is not only tops for the screamingly funny comedy you would expect from the Marx Brothers, but one that is built around an intriguing plot, an intresting story und some truly brilliant singing by two Broadway stage favorites, Kitty Carlisle and Allan Jones. The action romps along at a sprigt- ly pace as Groucho, Chico and Harpo go into the grand opera business in Italy, dash across the Ataltnaic and stage an opera in New York that has the city on its ear. It is opera such as has never been seen before, as the Marxes become matchmakers to further the romance of two unknown opera singers. Original comedy, Sparkling dialogue, delighted opera and, of course, the Marx Brothers, vie in the funniest, most delightful fun feast that has come to the screen for some time. Obsolete Office in France Abolished Royalty Long Ago Vanished, But Soft-Snap Job Had Continued PARIS.—(/P)—A survival of the royal regime in France, the office of referendary to the seal of France, was snuffed out by one of Premier Laval's last decree-laws. In the old days, it was the duty of the referendaries to see that letters- patent were in order before the great seal was affixed to them. Royalty vanished but the job remained. No appointment to the office has been made since 1892, the work being done by one or two officials at a sixth of the cost.

The government is attempting to stimulate this. But the time is ripe for it and the power industry may, on its own motion, press this unexploited market. Relief Needs Persist But on the whole it seems fairly Clear that these will not produce a wholesale revival of the heavy machinery and construction industries. That being so, the government will have to continue its spending. Bvit there is another reason for this. It is not merely a question of prim- in'g the pump. There is a'social prob- lem'involved. With such a vast army of unemployed people the government —no matter who were in power—.• would have to continue to provide work or relief. In addition, the government will have to continue those projects'''which It has begTjnV'Th'e df- fect of all this will be that the government must continue spending. And this spending plus any energy of !ts own which business may develop will insure the continuance of the business rise. Business itself—or rather Big Bi^si- ness—insists that there is one powerful drawback. Buiness itself, with its reduced inventories, its shortages, the enormous reserves built up in banks, .says it is ready to go and would go forward on a tremendous scale if it were not for the strait-jacket of government legislation and bureaucracy which restrains it. There is absolutely nothing in this argument. Business Unhampered Where is this strait-jacket? There is none on the banks. As a matter of fact, the banks are upheld by the government guarantee,.by over a billion in government loans and investment in banks and by a rise of seven billion dollars in deposits, almost all the resViH bf government action. There is none on industry. The NBA which might have been considered a chain 6n industry, is a tiling of the past. There is none on the railroads. Instead, the roads have been kept alive by government loans on a vast scale. Perhaps the utilities may insist they are held back by the utility act.' But this ac does no.apply to the operating utilities, only to the holding companies which control their stock. Even assuming that this is hampering the utilities, this does not apply to all industry. Big Boom Is Peril • There may be two of more opinions about the wisdom or the lack of wisdom of the New Deal measures, flut it is not fair to gay they are a straitjacket on idustry. For a while this charge was brought against the Securities Act -and the Stock Exchange Act. But tliisvcail' no loftgfer- be- claim ed. There has been too 'much financ- ing'under the (Securities Act for this argument to hold water any longer. And as for the Stock Exchange Act, the 'Commission has put almost no restrictions on the exchanges as yet. If further proof were needed we have only to turn to the 3,000,000 share days which have been developing on the exchange. One of the dangers of the year is a runaway speculation. The federal authorities have shown no dis- ' position to curb it. . Another danger of the year is the threat of war which hangs over the world. What effect a great war between foreign powers would have on our own economy it is difficult to say. It would depend on the policies adopted by the administration.

From now on Shakespeare will be pronounced as in English and not "Shacks-pay-are," as it has frequently come over the radio in the past, and Robert Browning will no longer be known to French listeners as "Ro-bair Broo-nange," Heavy Industries to Get Under Way Two Supreme Court Reversals Have Helped, Declares Banker NEW YORK—Walter W. Smith, president of the First National Bank in St. Louis, in an annual statement on business conditions said the supreme court decisions holding unconstitutional the NRA and the Frazier-Lemke farm moratorium act stimulated trade and industry. "These decisions did more to restore •confidence and make possible-the beginning of expansion in the heavy industries than any other single event," he said. "As a result there exists .the first real 'promise, barring unforeseen -developments, that -the heavy industries soon will begin absorbing an appreciable number of unemployed."

After that we could capitalize on the war and look for war business or we could adopt a policy of strict neutrality. The latter policy would 'cut into our industry. The former would expand business but almost certainly get us into the war. Another threat is that of labor troubles. If profits continue to expand, as they probably will, and prices to rise, we are certain to see vigorous labor demands. There will also be a rise in the vigor and extent of the industrial union. Voters Are No Peril Another threat is the election. This may be dismissed with the statemenl that the old myth that elections interfere with business is absolutely without foundation. Business has improved in election eyars at least as often as it has declined. This election, of course, will revolve almost entirely around business problems. The chief of these y/ill be the issue of economy. Along with this will go the issue of government borrowing and taxation. Of course the issue of inflation, silver, and along with it such corollary issues as the Townsend plan, etc., will occupy the spotlight. The third issue will be the question of states vs. federal rights. This will include the issue of regulation of business. And the anti-trust law may be a major issue. One other subject will perhaps rise to a crisis this year. That is the question of the stabilization of currencies. If France devalues he franc, which now seems almost inevitable, then we will probably see an effort to stabilize the currencies of France, America, England and the whole sterling bloc. This will, of course, have some effect upon our foreign trade. If we take the long view and look beyond 1936, the scene is far more troubled. That we must face sooner or later the bills for our whole depression policy cannot be doubted. That will come by 1938. Certainly it will come in the next administration. But 1936, looked at alone, presents a fair prospect.
