And the weak I shall gird and make strong.

UUT AS THEY drove up the icy gravel drive between the snow-laden evergreens, Margot asked, "Who are the guests?" "There'll probably be a mob for dinner," Jorinny explained as he opened the car door. "Sis always lias a gang in on New Year's day." Shouts of laughter and singing In the huge living room greeted them as the butler opened the door. Through the archway Margot caught a glimpse of Peg, Johnny's sister, "Only the young could look forward to another year with such gay-ety," she observed wiiii uiviuscment. "I'm afraid," Margot said, "I couldn't keep up with the general enthusiasm before dinner. Isn't there some place we can observe without being observed?" Johnny nodded toward a small conservatory opening on the living room. "There's a side door to that through the butler's pantry." He led the way. Seating her on a love seat screened by a magnificent fern, he left, to return with cocktails. Margot took the glass absent-mindedly, her eyes on the group "Isn't that your Miss Leslie?" around the piano. "Isn't that your Miss Leslie?" He followed her gaze. A raven-fiaired, vivacious young girl was accompanying his sister in a duet. His secretary 1 He nodded. "She seems a little different away from the office." "She probably doesn't know you're here," Margot said. "And just what do you mean by that?" Johnny asked. "Oh, Johnny!" her voice was faintly malicious. "Don't tell me you haven't guessed. Why, the girl is simply delirious about you." His laugh was spontaneous. "Now who's being romantic?" "She told me," Margot answered venly. Johnny stared, open - mouthed. "Honestly?" - His mind searched back over his three years' association with Miss Leslie. Incident after incident cropped up to bolster Margot's assertion. "Men are stupid, aren't they?" Margot shook her head slowly, "Only blind." Johnny looked at his watch. "It's about time for my weekly proposal," he said, grinning. Margot lighted a cigarette. Through the smoke she said, "And your weekly rejection." "Well," his voice seemed strangely carefree, "in that case I won't propose." The couples in the other room were dancing now. Johnny's eyes were following his secretary, mov ing lithely about the polished floor in perfect accord with the intricate pattern of her partner's steps. "Graceful, isn't she?" "And beautiful," Margot said. ; Johnny nodded. "And young." He looked over at the words, faintly flushed, aware for the second time that day of the disparity between his age and Margot's. "But not nearly so beautiful nor so graceful as you." His voice lacked conviction. Margot bowed primly. "But younger." Just before dinner, Johnny said, "We really should go in and say 'hello' to Miss Leslie. If she knows we're here she must think s rude." Margot yawned. "I'm too comfortable. You'd, better, though. You know, keep up the old oflice morale." Margot watched him as he sauntered a shade too casually over to the group once aain around the pir ano. Even at a distance the eagerness with which the girl greeted him was apparent. Dinner was announced. Someone suggested, "Just one more song. A song tor the new year." Peg struck an opening chord, the group joined hands and voices lifted in singing "Auld Lang Syne." Johnny, his hand incasing his secretary's, was by no means the quietest. Peg was secretly 6miling at Miss Leslie. Miss Leslie's eyes were directed toward the conservatory. "Thanks," she seemed to say to Margot. Released by Western Newspaper Union.

And so again we send greetings with the hope that your future will always be bright With the light of liberty and broad in the freedoms as we know them so that you may( enjoy all the fine things that freedom brings.

'Open House' on New Year's Day It was customary for the Dutch settlers of New York to hold "open house" on New Year's day and to provide light refreshments, usually centering around a large bowl of punch, for friends calling to pay the compliments of the season. During' the latter part of the 19th century the custom of making short calls on New Year's day was in full swing throughout America. Metropolitan newspapers carried columns of "at home" notices which, including names of social prominence and those making no such pretense, announced hours during which visitors would be received: having duly received, hosts and hostesses closed their receptions to join the procession of callers at other "open houses." A succession of "open houses" and punch bowls minimized the courtesy accorded hostesses in many cases and even resulted in receptions being "crashed" by bibulous young men; these abuses led to the abandonment of the "open house" custom, New Year's calls now being exchanged only by intimates and without any public announcement of intention to receive.

Mexican Clock Manv Movipnn families Still Ob serve the "old clock system" on I New Year's eve. On a table in a main room of the house, lighted candles surround a tiny casket, upon which stands a clock. On the stroke of midnight the clock is stopped, plat-cd in the casket and ! buried in the garden, symbolizing ! the passing of the old year.
