W LI mL I II Coin Roundup . . . By Edward C. Rochettei Lot Ang4M Timos ndicatt The Christmas season does not really seem to begin until one hears the tinkling roll of bells of the Salvation Army Santa Clauses. They are as much a part of the festive scene as trees and lights, snowfalls and busy streets. One would be hard-pressed to imagine Christmas without the foot-to-foot rock and the stiff-armed shivering peal for coins to help feed the down-on-their-luck Christmas Day or to help provide a nearly-new toy for some poor youngster. Only a Scrooge can resist dropping a few spare coins into the curbside kettles. Your reward is a "Merry Christmas" or a "God bless you," plus a little self-satisfaction. BACK IN THE 1930s, when a dime meant a cup of coffee and a nickel change, 10 cents dropped into a Salvation Army kettle brought more than the customary "God bless." Manhattan shoppers, outside of stores like Bloomingdale's and Macy's, would get a penny back one with Santa Claus' smiling face on the obverse! The coin was a genuine U.S. cent. If one dropped in an extra nickel, 15 cents in all, one received a greeting card holder with it, too. The U.S. Mint had a little outside help with the Santa Claus design. A young, enterprising coin dealer named Louis M. Werner had figured a way to cap cents with a thin copper shell, the way a dentist caps a tooth, Embossed on the face of the shell was a Santa Claus design. The coin could be easily pried loose and probably most were in time. More than a half-million capped cents were made by Werner for the Christmas seasons from 1935 to 1938. Few remain intact today. LOU WERNER PRODUCED other designs, too. When Admiral Byrd headed for the South Pole, Werner was dockside vending capped cents bearing Byrd's portrait. Some other issues might be considered bizarre by today's standards, but Depression-era Americans wanted "pieces of the action." Werner produced capped cents noting the Morro Castle fire and the Bruno Hauptmann-Lindbergh kidnapping trial. Werner went on from vending souvenir pennies to become one of the most respected professional numismatists in America. He became an officer in the American Numismatic Association and a dealer to royalty. The octogenarian today modestly refuses to name his former coin collecting clients, but it is known that at least two kings and two cardinals built their collections with Werner's help. His Manhattan high-rise office now is closed, his coin-capping equipment in the possession of the Museum of the American Numismatic Association at Colorado Springs, Colo. SADDEST OF ALL, "his" table at Luchow's in New York serves other customers. Only the older waiters recall his proud, "Lou Woiner's table, please!" I once had the privilege to dine there as his guest. I think of him every time I hear a sidewalk Santa Claus' bell ring. My card to him this year will have no capped cent, but it will have a copy of this column. i 11UU Jlllll L society 'in' on campus PIZZLE SOLUTIONS avons V135 3T8VM oo av Q'iy'il N V VV 30H 'av3i'evy V153ISB1 3QON T I W'3I ln Va O'llli 3 "I O Vll3N D JL. a i msVNoacoB vlKow' i snaV vvDh v lVBi'3'N' I Q V DBfAV'M' 3 i anOBVHfdO'Oei JnOhoo V9 raa 5 v ante" i eevg HaVN i qMO n V n q VdHwoo'SHoa'd 3TddBlS3QOW o i -ivsnasoaia I 0V1B39VB3M3S 3S3 N3Q 3 90) aOM H9 aoHAofl n i eV3 Answer: H3HJLV3M3H1 Sl) MBS 1! uegM pegsniq mopuim em AUU3HS indMVI 31V10U Aitand anum dfi3xvw Walla Walla, Wash. (AP) In the moonlight, four Whitman College students gather around a pickup truck on a dusty country road. "It's a clear night, and it's not cold. There should be quite a few roos out," the leader says. Whitman's version of a snipe hunt? No, and it's not a typical college initiation, either. These students are about to be ushered into the Roo Rat Society, a society devoted to the conservation of wildlife and natural resources, and the rite of passage is the capturing of a "roo" a kangaroo rat. The initiation hunt serves to "turn somebody on to conservation, especially people who've never had their hands on a furry, cuddly wild animal," says James Todd, a Whitman professor and one of the society's founders. He says a roo rat can be recognized by its "magnetic personality." Other than that, the small rodent, which lives in dry, sandy regions of North America, can be spotted by its long hind legs, short forelegs and the way it hops like a kangaroo when it runs. Three Whitman College science professors founded the Roo Rat Society in 1963. m ma IU70 OFF ALL COIN and STAMP SUPPLIES DURING DECEMBER! , ShK-r I'm .Circle Coin X Philatelic tShop, Inc 120 E. Cunn.1 Dr. CariiM-l, IN 16032 STAMPS In The News By ROBERT N. BELL A Christmas tree, holly and ivy, mistletoe, candles and ribbons all featured in the set of five Christmas stamps issued by Great Britain. The 10-pence stamp depicts a stylized version of a Christmas tree, popularized in Great Britain by Prince Albert, Queen Victoria's husband, who introduced it to the royal family in the 1840s. Candles, ribbons and ivy are depicted on 12-pence issue while the 13'i-pence stamp shows a kissing bough of mistletoe, apples, oranges and evergreen. The 15-pence issue depicts a selection of paper chains and streamers which were popular in England in the latter half of the 19th century. , The 17i2-pence stamp shows a holly wreath which only now is becoming popular in England. The stamps were issued by the British post office Nov. 19 and were designed by Jeffery Matthews. Designs of the two new airmail stamps to be issued Dec. 30 to meet new international postage rates have been released by the U.S. Postal Service. The 35-cent stamp features a portrait of Glenn Curtiss, an aviation pioneer, and his airplane. On July 4, 1908, Curtiss made the first public flight in America of more than a kilometer. The 28-cent issue features a portrait of Blanche Stuart Scott, the first American woman to make a solo airplane flight, and her plane. Both stamps will be issued at Hammondsport, N.Y., where Curtiss was born and where Mrs. Scott made her solo flight in 1910. THE DENOMINATION OF the Curtiss stamp meets the new international airmail rate of 35 cents per half ounce. The 28-cent denomination meets the new rate for international airmail post cards. For first-day cancellations, collectors are urged to purchase the stamps at local post offices after the first day of issue and affix them to addressed envelopes. These envelopes should be sent under cover to: "First Day Cancellations, Postmaster, Hammondsport, N.Y. 14849." Both types of orders must be postmarked no later than Jan. 14.

A Washington ripples State delegation praises Brademas VA'. ysJ By BEN COLE The Star's Washington Bureau Washington Defeated Rep. John Brademas (D-Ind.) has won the hearts of his Hoosier colleagues for the graceful manner in which he conduct ed himself alter losing to 27-year-old Jack Hiler. The whole Hoosier dele-' At 1- . 1 V v, t A gauon in uie nouse oi nepre- sentatives KfttK Dan il h. dxt - licans and Dem- HXX;;"1(L ocrats - in-IV X"-- i scribed a trib- V VU ute to Brade- fnio mas- eP- An coie. drew Jacobs Jr. (D-Ind.) said he hoped that Brademas would hang the token of his colleagues' affection in his office wherever he becomes president of a university. (Jacobs thinks that's Brademas' destiny). Despite the high-risk nature of holding political office, many losers pout or vacillate between anger and injured pride for weeks after their defeat. In their tribute to Brademas, the Hoosier congressmen said: "We take pride in the splendid distinction which you have brought to our delegation. You have displayed in the halls of Congress singular erudition, industry and grace during a turbulent and decisive era in the history of our Republic. "YOUR IMAGINATIVE and masterful mark is etched deeply in this institution. For a fifth of a century, you have been the principal guardian of American education. "The eloquence and precision with which you have written and spoken in the House have set a tone for rational discussion of debatable issues. "Your parliamentary career, not unlike that of Churchill's, has been one of letters and inspiration. You leave behind monuments of towering achievement." Brademas and defeated Sen. Birch E, Bayh (D-Ind.) were given a farewell dinner; as Congress neared its end, at the home of Rep. Lee H. Hamilton (D-Ind.). The party in Hamilton's home was attended by the Democratic members of the Indiana delegation. Indiana will have "four" senators when the 97th Congress convenes next January. Besides Sen. Richard G. Lugar (R- Ind ) and Sen.-elect Dan Quayle (R-. Ind ) there will be Sen. Ted Stevens (R-Alaska) and Sen. Mack Mattmgly (R-Ga.), both natives of the Hoosier state. . u One of Indiana's "extra" members of the House fell by the wayside during the recent election. Rep. Samuel L. Devine (R-Ohio), a native of Indiana, was one of the very few Republicans to lose his seat in a year when the GOP tide was running strong. Rep. Andrew Jacobs Jr. (D-Ind ) has this thing about telephone answering in his office. Trying to underscore his belief that the congressional office belongs, not to him, but to his district, Jacobs insists that the phone be answered, "11th District of Indiana." This thoroughly bemused the Capitol telephone operators. Using only the name of the state and district to identify an office is the way it's done when a member dies in the middle of his term. The baffled operators recently called Jacobs to find out if he was still alive, and they were still further confused when he assured them, that, yes, he was. Dr. Foster Montgomery, a former Indianapolis surgeon living here, has joined a jazz combo at George . Washington University. The surgeon says he is "retired," : but fills his time being a medical consultant to the Foreign Service, ; working in a hospital and playing in the GWU combo. Explaining why he was invited to play bass trombone with the young musicians, Dr. Montgomery said infla- : tion did it. A bass trombone used to be a reasonably priced instrument avail- able to young musicians without .' breaking them (or their parents). Nowadays, an instrument costs up- ', ward of $2,000. The jazz band simply co-opted a retired surgeon from Indiana, bass trombone and all. Maybe the Democratic Party didn't fare too well in the election, but you have to give it credit for staying jaunty despite misfortune. A brochure appeared in the House Press Gallery last week listing proudly the "new Democratic members" of Congress, just as if they had come in a landslide. It was one of the thinnest little pieces of literature to appear for quite a spell. A Qift from Ayis Means Mot6 7f jcnwrT' For the new stamp hobbyist, We have just the gift.
