fags Two HOPE STAR, HOPE. ARKANSAS Many Ways to Observe Christmas , By The Associated Press Many American communities have their own, individual ideas about how to make this a Merry Christmas. At least ono even lias a special dale— instead of December 25 — for. the festivities. But whatever the variations, it's all in the name of good will. Out west in Boise, Idaho, one group observes the Yulelidc Kenson with a "sheep-herders ball." At ITie event, held by the Idaho bnsque colony, everybody must wear overalls and'gingham. In Nashville, Tenn., a 3flycar-old tradition calls for the singing of carols outside every home that has a candle burning in the window. Volunteer carolers make the rounds — with proceeds going to a home for children of working mothers. Christmas doesn't come until j Jan. 6 in the fishing village ol .Hodante, N. :C. There, according to a custom followed for generations they celebrate Old Christmas, or 12th night, an adaptation of the feast of the ephiphany commemo- yating the manifestation'of Christ to the Magi; • - : 'An international flavor will be added to the festivities in three upstate New . York communities, where 51 persons, from 22 foreign nations will be guests over the holiday weekend;/The guest:-: —• clerical workers and others from the United Nations headcjuarters at Lake Suc- ctess, N.Y, — will stay in the hprncs o{ 31 families in Binghamp ton, Johnson Citv and Endicott. The plan was worked out by Ro-. tlry clubs. In Boston, the golden dome of Ihe'Massachusetts state house is aglow for the first time since the war. Tonight carolers and bell ringers will roam staid old Beacon Hill, with open house prevailing at many of the old mansions. In Atlantic City, N. J. — which specializes in spectacles —'the long boardwalk is aglow with a row of 28 lighted Christmas trees down its center.Santa Claus appeared last night aboard a 40-foot crane, whch lowered him into n lighted area where he stepped out and' distributed candy to young sters.

Wiiliam Perlbei'g with a topnotch supporting cast headed bv Little Hock, Dec. 22 —(UP) Dean R. Morley, recently-appointed stale revenue commissioner, promised today to throw the wholesale distribution of liquor open to anyone with proper "moral and fi- nanci;.!" qualifications. At present. I lie multimiilion dollar li'.:uor business in Arkansas is hautlli'd by seven wholesale firms. "If a man is morally and financially fjuaiilied, I j-c'(; no rea.sun why h. 1 shouldn't be granted a wliol'.;saie permit." Morley .said. Meanwhile. Kevenue Commissioner Otbo A. Cook vigorously denied that a monopoly existed and snicl there is "a little more lo the argument" than moral and financial qualifications. He explained (hat his chief reason for not expending the wholesale business in Arkansas is the reluctance of distilleries to send new brands of whiskey to the state. During his four years under Gov Ben Leney. Cook, has granted one wholesale perrnil. It went to the central distributing company of Little Rock. He revoked n license granted (o (he Glaxer Drug company of Little Rock by an earlier pdrninistrnlion, and turned clown the only other application filed. It was presented lo him by John Warren of Little Rock. Cool- said, however, that, several other persons have approached him concerning permits but decided not Fridoy, December 24, 1948 to file when they were told to furnish a list of available brands not jo ing sold in Arkansas. "We operate under the theory thai only one wholesaler in the stale should handle a specific brand of whiskey," Cook declared. "And with few new brands available, Ihe only way a now wholesaler could gel his liquor supply .. would be to take the brands now '»' distributed by men already in bus™, incss." '• The commissioner has sole authority in passing on liquor per'-" mils. , ^ '" He said that the distribution of" the same brand by two wbolesajprs., is bad for the business and would, bring on an unsteady price slruc- lurc and cut-throat competition!"" In considering an application, ' Cook said, be said an applicant must be a qualified voler in Ar-, kansas, of good moral iharaitcn;.* and repotalion and show an ado.- * qoalc source of liquor. He estimated at leasl $25,000 was needed to start a new firm into the* distribution business. ',,'."'. The commissioner explained tji'cjt, his only interest in granting per-, units was to protect the tax reve-- inie coming to Ihe stale fom the liquor industry. "I believe that my actions as revenue commissioner have adequately protected and increased those revenues." ...•»• '.£ 'I I SCHAUFELE WEDS ' _^ '• Little Rqck,,Dcc. 23 — v'P) —f.,cu*e- Sehciufelo, . star .'defensive fullbafk^ valli the University of Arkanstjs; football teaiti. 1 and Miss C-m.O.yn; F,ngo.)
