Judging from her attentive look, she is waiting only for the 12 o'clock whistles heralding the arrival of the new year. New Year's Day Antedates the Birth of Christ by 452 Years The tek-'uration of New Years on January 1 began in 452 B. C, and therefore, contrary to logical reasoning, had nothing whatsoever to do with the birth of Christ. The ancient Roman calendar began in, and with, the month of March: there were ten months, the last six of which were named Quin-ti!is, Sextilis, September, October, November, and December or, Hie Fifth. Sixth, Seventh, Eighth, Ninth and Tenth months respectively. Nu-ma added two months, January and February, placing the former at the beginning of the year and February at the end. In 452, B. C, February was placed between January and March: tints establishing the order of months as of today. The ancient calendar year did not correspond to the solar year and by the time the days of Julius Caesar rolled around the actual and calendar equinoxes were months apart: a situation which Caesar Fct out to remedy. Caesar's astronomers and calendar experts fixed the calendar year at 305 days--and because they estimated the solar year as of 3(J5'4 days an extra day was to be added every fourth year. This Julian calendar was effective, by decree of Caesar, on January 1, 4(i B. C. Actually, the earth goes around the sun in 3(15 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes, and 4t seconds: and by 1582 A. D., the Julian calendar was 10 days behind the sun. Pope Gregory XIII remedied the situation by ordering that the calendar play leap, frog and the intervening days between October 5 and October 15, 1582, were lost forever. In order to prevent repetition. of the sun running away from the calendar and vice versa, Pope Gregory decided that a lean vear should be omitted now and then: hence 0'ily those years divisible by four exclusive of years numbering the centuriesshould have 366 days, cmd the century-marking years shall be leap years only if divisible by four after the ciphers have been omitted. The Gregorian calendar has been officially adopted in most countries of the civilized world: however, many creeds and peoples still celebrate their religious and traditional festivals in accordance with ancient calendars. Pre-Christian Roman inaugurated the new year by offering sacrifices to the g'.ds, exchanging greetings, and bestowing gifts. During the earjy Christian centuries, New Year's festivities persisted and became so boisterous that the faithful were forbidden to participate therein. After December 25 had been established as the day of nativity, the church made January 1 a religious festival honoring the circumcision of Jesus: the day being thus observed in the Roman churcn since 487, and in the Anglican church since 154!. ' Botvl Game Feature of Spiv Year's Since 1916 Since 1!16 the Rose Bowl football game has been played annually on New Year's day as a cofeature of Pasadena's Tournament of Hoses.

It i a good thing to observe Christmas day. The mere marking of times and seasons, when men agree to stop work nnd make merry together, is a wise and wholesome custom. It helps one to feel the supremacy of the common life over the individual life. It reminds a man to set his own little watch, now and then, by the great clock of humanity which runs on sun time. But there is a belter thing than the observance of Christmas day, and that is, keeping Christmas. Are you willing to forget what you have done for other people, and to remember what other people have done for you: to ignore what the world owes you, and to think what you owe the world; to put your rights in the background, and your duties in the middle distance, and your chances to do a little more than your duty in the foreground; to see that your fellowmen are just as real as you are, and to try to look behind their faces to their hearts, hungry for joy; to own that probably the only good reason for your existence is not what vou are going to get out of life, but what you are going to give to life; to close your book of complaints against the management of the universe, and look around you for a plae where you can sow a few seeds of happiness are you willing to do these things even for a day? Then you can keep Christmas. Are you willing to stoop down and consider the needs and the desires of little children; to remember the weakness and loneliness of people who are growing old; to stop asking how much your friends love you, and ask yourself whether you love them enough; to bear in mind the things that other people have to bear in their hearts; to try to understand what those who live in the some house with you really want, without waiting for them to tell you; to trim your lamp so that it will give more light and less smoke, and to cany it in front in that your shadow will fall behind you; to make a grave for your ugly thoughts and a garden for your kindly feelings, with the gate open are you willing to do these things even for a day? Then' you can keep Christmas. Are you willing to believe that love is the strongest thing in the world stronger than hate, stronger than evil, stronger than death and that the blessed life which began in Bethlehem 190U years ago is the image and brightness of the Eternal Love? Then you can keep Christmas. And if you keep it for a day, why not always? But you can never keep it alone. W rap It Right s Here's what happens when packages both overseas and domesticaren't wrapped correctly. That soldier or sailor may be a forgotten man on the holiday mail call unless packages are wrapped securely and addressed plainly. Brawn Takes Place of Boar's Head on Noel Brawn has largely been substituted for the boar's head for the Christmas and New Year's celebrations. For this dish the pig's head is soaked in salt water all night, scraped, cleaned and the brain and eyes removed. It is boiled until tender enough to r-mnve the bones. The meat is picked from the bones, chopped fine, seasoned with red and black pepper, cioves, mace, nutmeg and salt. It is then pressed into a brick or loaf funn and served cold. The custom is believed to have originated with the ancient Romans. Coloring1 the Flames To have colored flames in the Christmas fireplace there are a number of different chemicals which may be added to shellac as a carrier. Small pieces of wood may be painted with the mixtures or it can be mixed with sawdust. The following colors and chemicals required wiil give excellent results: Violet, potassium chlorate; yellow, potassium nitrate; orange, calcium chloride; yellow, sodium chloride or salt; red, strontium nitrate; apple green, barium nitrate; emerald, copper nitrate; green, borax; purple, lithium chloride. Store Well Beets and carrots store well, to frtiant early ones for use during th swnmer and later varieties for storing durlrg tne fa'l and winter motiti-s. In keeping with the gay spirit of the holiday when greetings pass from friend to friend, we hope that your Christmas will be a merry one and that the New Year will bring you 0 irisfmas Hang up your, stockings For Sanla with caro.
