RAISING A FAMILY By Olive Roberts fiartoii * : Christmas Is No. 1 Holiday Becaiise We're All Children |K . —Adults "Escape- ' Back Into Early Years Tffby ' is Christmas the day of all days in'the year? Is it because erf .parents or family gathering, or because the religions significance sets It apart , tot mother days called holidays? I rather think it is all things put together, plus a certain mysticism not attached' to other days of special interests. fiaster is. after ell, the holiest da Jn all Christendom. Thmiksgiving is the time of reunions. Gifts attache^ their glamorous spell to other days b the year. But there is unly one Christ mas. Why is it?' ^ I have reached the .conclusion tha day. The day of toys and imagina tion and a pause in the s,tern realtie of living. We all become children then. The day of joy a bit of madness and forgetting, the balm secretlj soughht by hte> most mature a nd the most sober and serious . In every heart there always exists the subconscious craving for escape, the 'longing to revert to the irresponsible days of -early childhood.

This shows, then, thata at heart we all are children easily caught by "heathenish" trappings for holly and mistletoe, pine branches and so on, reach back to antiquity. Yes, Christmas is the real children's day, an we all become children. Not only because we want the small.folk to-have ,a Ume, but because we ourselves 'grow young. This is the reason we love it. Is Santa Wrong? .And Santa 'Claus? Where does ho come in? The .Chi'ist Child is Ihe lovely little angel of peace, hope, forgiveness and good will. Is it wrong to combine our homage to worldly :Santa Claus with spiritual honors .due the Holy Child on His birthday? This is the'question that sometimes, troubles the conscience of parents. One seems to ;be the quintessence of idolatry, as opposed toithe secred Birth about which .the whole. Christian faith is,built. .Yet, I believe that if Santa Claus, or his prototypes in other lands, had been -considered pernicious by the Church, the custom would have died long ago. Santa would be a mere mem'- ory and not the hearty personage he has become through the years. He has been sainted, you see. for good deeds— as, for instance, "Saint .Nicholas." 1 do not think the myth of Santa Ilaus is harmful for young children, le personfies happiness and generosity. Surely Tor one day in the year, he can't do much harm. tfashwn ?hlrtwnlster Frock Handy On Cold Winter Mornings On Kent's Island, Bay .of Funcly, lerring gulls trample down tree tops so solidly. that a 'man can walk atop the abnormally grown branches.

It won't crush and muss under your heavy coat, and it always looks smart and businesslike. This design, Pattern 8356, has individual little touches about it that give a refreshingly different flavor to the classic shirtwaist style. Note that the pockets are notched to match the collar, and that it has the graceful new gored Skir. Make this in both silk and thin wool —faille, tie silk, flat crepe, flannel or wool crepe—in some -bright, pretty color like violet, fern green, Burgundy or teal blue, to contrast with your dark winter coat. The dress will have .a finished, professional tailored look. Pattern 8356 is designed for sizes 32, 34, 36, 38, 40, 42, 44, 46, 48, and 50. Size The MempstcHtl county Christmas Seal sales committee appeals to nil citizens who have not ns .vet paid for their Christmas seals sent through the malls to do so at once. "The response to the seal snle campaign has, in most instances, been very gratifying'but every cent is needed in order to carry out the program planned for 1339," according to Jnmes H. Pilkinton, chairman. Returns from the Christmas seals to date fall short of the amount needed to carry out the work for next year according to the statement of' the chairman. He explained that before the work of the local committee is complete, all seals mailed out must be accounted for. Those who can make a contribution are urged to do so nt Jnce. and those who cannot are asked to help the committee complete its work by returning their seals. "If you have not sent your money for Christmas seals, please do so .oday." said Mr. Pilkinton. "It is a source of the greatest satisfaction" to he committee in charge of the 1938 sale of Christmas seals that the response has evidenced, in many instances, such wholehearted cooperation in this fine enterprise. Out of im approximate 900 persons who have received seals this year in Hope, there remain only a few from whom nothing has been heard." "Many of those unable to buy any seals at all this year have returned them with courteous little notes of explanation, in which they expressed their interest and good will, with a promise to help as soon ns financial conditions are better. A large number has sent money, some retaining their full allotment, others keeping as many as they can afford."

CHAPTER XXVIII JUDY knew, looking into the mir- rior before she went out to meet Dwight Campbell, that she ted no right to do this. Jack Hanley's ring was on her finger. As she powdered her nose, the ring moved, it was so loose. She had forgotten to wind the string around it, to make it tighter. Yet the girl in the mirror looked back at her with eyes that glowed with happiness. The softly curved mouth was not .smiling, but in its corners there was none of the weary droop she had come to know so well, looking at herself innumerable times before she went out to face people. Her pale gold hair waved around her face. The high forehead, the creamy skin, made a lovely picture. Not like Marvel of course. Not redheaded and spectacular and challenging. You'd never fail to notice Marvel, no matter where she was. She was an eyecatcher. Yet Dwight would rather be with Judy. Her mother had gone to Mrs. Lane's, for which Judy was thankful. Not that mother ever questioned her suspiciously when she v/ent out but— Her heart sank. Dwight. was making her do so many things she had never done before! Why did it have to be so clandestine? It was only a harmless meeting. Just to talk for a few minutes. But the ring on her finger silently reproached her. She shouldn't be going. * * * CHE got into her car, almost defiantly. Dwight was already waiting .on the corner where they had met so unexpectedly, last time. He got into the car, saying, "I'm so you came! Things have been tough for me." He added, "You're looking beautiful." "Don't, Dwight." "But I mean it. YoiiYc-like a— like a cool, soothing hand. The way you look is restful. Lovely. Friendly." She laughed uncertainly. They drove for a few blocks, and then she said, "Wo oughtn't do this. We might—" "Might run into someone v/ho knows us, oh?" His voice was Miter. "After all—" she said. "Narvowminded fools!" Judy's knuckles wore white on the wheel. "But you arc married, Dwight. And I'm engaged." "That doesn't givo dirty gossip a right to take pot shot:; at us." "But—but—" "Oh, I know, I've taken you into my arms, ki.ssc-ds.5du. I guess it sticks out nil over mi; that I lovr you." "You dun'i love mo, Dwight," she Kaid. "You re just lonely. You've had a bad .shellacking, you're angry with your wifi; sea air, and the bucking of n destroyer in heavy weather, and all the other poetical and half-baked stuff .ensigns spout—why—no, of course not. It's n hard life, and a narrow one. But it has its compensations." "Getting to be an admiral?" she asked. "The taste of .power—four starred blue flags and being piped over the side and twelve ,gun En- Jutes. That what you mean?" "That's glamor, too, and precious few ever get it." "Still, it's what you mean, isn't it?" * » * TTE did not deny that. She said thoughtfully, "You don't really love it. You could live without it. It isn't everything to you. You dread being passed over, and yet if you were, it wouldn't be a trag- •cily. You're self-sufficient, Dwight, and .sooner or'later your ambition .would shape itself into some other career." "How did we happen to get talking about this?" he asked. "Let's talk about the moon." "I was thinking," she said. "Just thinking. Do you know, Dwight, my father collects books naval engagements, full-rigged ships, the charm, nncl fashion-setting movie actresses. Look them all over and you'll find the piice-seltors are brunettes. "Ebony blue," is the name given to the dusky new tresses by I he Intei-- nutjonnl Master Ladies Hairdressers Association. Hollywood IKLS given momentum to the back-to-brunette movement. "Perhaps it all started with Hedy Lamnrr's appearance in "Algiers," says Max Factor, Jr., Hollywood make-up specialist. "But the fact remains that Joan Bennett and oilier famous .stars are forsaking their blonde tresses in 'favor of a new brunette trend. If glamour history repeats itself—and it usually docs—as the stars go so go the women of the world." Earl Carroll, famous beauty connoisseur and showman, feels strongly on the subject. When authorities chose Marilyn Mcaeke, 'blonde Ohio contestant ns Miss America for 1938, Carroll objected. He insisted the title should have gone to Miss California- Claire Jarnes—a brunette. A bibulous fellow is unable to decide between Rye, N. Y., nncl Champaign, 111., as a spot for the holidays.
