Harry Wet-el of Slarines' Artillery After operating in many wars for nearly century and a half without any artillery of its own, the marine corps first used organic artil-Icvy units in Han Domingo in 1916. In all previous engagements involving artillery, marines had been supported cither by naval gunfire or by army artillery units, as was the case in France.

Wa hung on the back of a three-leg ycd cha ir; Outside snow wa fallin' in beautifuj (5a!;es, But I didn't care I was too full of aches; I'd worked in a store through the holiday strife. And was plannin' to sleep tor the rest ol my life. When up from the airshaft there came such a clatter I leaped out of bed to see what was the matter; ! thought at the time 'twas the nut down o;;e flight, Who starts tap his radio late ev'ry nijihU; So I went to the window and loudly did cry. "It this Christmas Eve or Die fourth of July?" When what to my dead-with-sleep eyes did appear But a hinkydink sleigh and tiny reindeer! And who should be dririn right up to the door But one of them masquerade guys from Die store 1 said to myself. ''What can be this nut's game?" When he clucked to his reindeer and called 'era by name; "Now Dasher! Now Dancer! Now Pran-.-rl Now Vixen! On Comet! On Cupid! On Donder and Bhtzni" An' ust as Vm dopin what fieri lie will do. Eight up to the housetop the whole outfit flew! And then in a Iwinklin' I heard cn the roof The prancin and pa win of meat on the hoof; ' Jst imagine mv feeiings. with sleep nearjv .dead And some sap with an ANIMAL ACT OVERHEAD ) As I drew in my neck and was turnin around. Down the airshaft my visitor came with a bound; A big bag of junk he displayed -v.-ith a grin. '. And he acted to me like he'd lik- to nov in. He was chubby, good-natured .-:nd onin with glee.

I was thinkin how noivy he was and how slick When he says to me. "Lady, I'm only St. Nick . Well, a poor tired store slave in no mood for fun, 1 gave him a look and I staked him, "Which me? 'As a Christmas rush salesgirl." I said, "you'll agree That a look at St. Nick is no big trrert to me; This has gone far enough and tl is bunk's gotta stop-Take the air with them goats or I'U yell for, cop!" He spoke not a word but went on with his work. And filled up my stofkin's, then turned with a jerk. And layin' a finger aside his red nose, And, givin' a nod, up the airshaft he rose ... He sprang to his sleigh with a of his head. And 1 pulled the shndes down and fell into lrd. "Merry Christmas!" he called as away his deer fh.w, And 1 just gave a yawn and I answers, "iez you!" ft.
