May you have a very, very merry and joyful Christmas. Streamlining is the popular mode in Christmas goods this year. Shop windows are filled with gift suggestions, all more or less streamlined. We noticed coaster wagons, roller skates, electric toasters, sleds, bicycles, in fact almost every thing but Christmas trees. For some reason, they are still made in last year's models. Even clocks are being streamlined. As if time did not travel fast enough without the aid of streamlining. And may you help to make it a very, very merry and joyful Christmas for others by helping the cheer fund grow. .

Thc shriek of the alarm brought the women out of the assembly room quicker than was anticipated and the janitor just had time to run into a room and lock the door, thinking he would find h:s way up the fire escape and down to another part of the building, where he was to appear calm and nonchalant and wondering what had happened. After the excitement had sub- j sided he learned to his dismay he was unable to unlock the door. He finally called for help, shoved his key under the door for an attempt to unlock it from the othei and tribulations of the job. And did anyone ever see more delightful winter days than thof/ enjoyed the forepart of the week? They had the perfect June days of song and prose pretty well overwhelmed in perfection.

And speaking of Father Time and his speed, we would like to remind our readers, if any, that Christmas will soon be here and it will then be too late to make that contribution to the Christmas Cheer fund. We do not want any heartbroken kids in Mason City Christmas morning'. Nor will there be any if all who can will support the fund. But as Barney Google says, "Times awasting." Let's go now. A little from you means much to others. Two Forfeit Bonds in Police Court; One Man Sentenced to 30 Days Charles J. Berry, Cedar Rapids, was sentenced to serve 30 days in the county jail by Police Judge Morris Laird Saturday on a charge of intoxication. Berry was arrested by police at 6:20 o'clock Friday night on Washington avenue southwest Bill G. Lee, Ventura, forfeited a S10 bond posted when arrested at Second street and South Federal avenue at 11:15 o'clock Friday night on a charge of intoxication. Elmer N. Rasmussen, Scarville, forfeited a 55 bond ported when arrested a tFourth street and Beaumont avenue on a charge of disorderly conduct. Scene of Nativity Will Be Shown on St. Joseph's Ground An outdoor crib on the St. Joseph school grounds will represent to passersby the Bethlehem stable I scene of Christ's nativity. The | Parent-Teachers' association is sponsoring the project. | Lights will be turned on the crib j for the first time at eight o'clock Tuesday evening, when school children will sing Christmas carols before the nativity group. Portrayal of the nativity scene in Catholic circles dates back to St. Francis of Assisi. Early representations in the form of drama were enacted both within and without the sacred precincts of the church. In most places now statutes supplant the living characters in the manger scenes depicted in Catholic churches from Christmas day until Twelfth Night, or Jan. 13. During recent years the outdoor crib has been propagated as a means of recalling the real significance of Christmas. Election Is Held by R. N.
