But because Aunt Nettie wasn't home, or said she wasn't home, the one time Christie went to call, right after ber marriage, Donald ruled against going again. "She knows where we are.

Tears stood in her eyes as she got out the old pictures, looked at the pretty, laughing face of the woman they told her wasn't really her mother.

Only a small proportion of the dead were slain in battle, the majority of the victims falling to the executioners, put to work by both sides in - their frenzy. Undoubtedly the world is appalled at the picture in Spain, where black Moors, the bulwark of the revolting army, battle with the hastily-organized militia of the government. It is also plain that Germans and Italians are engaged on the fascist side and Russians and some other foreigners are fighting for the government. The loss of life is one phase of the strife but the total loss to the Spanish nation and people will be measured for centuries to come regardless of the outcome. However, let it be said for the government in office when the revolt broke out, that the elected representatives of the people did not precipitate the terrible struggle. It was brought on by the rebellion of most of the regular army, aided and abetted by the conservative groups which had been unable to regain power through the ballot. Christmas with the family. . . .
