(ff) — Two women jmd. a. man from New York city were hurt when the automobile in which they were riding overturned diortly before 7 a. m. today near Tye, west of Abilene. The Injured, Ray Gutrian, Martha BaJolsky and Ben Isaacks, were brought here for emergency treatment. Their Injuries were not considered serious. Phil Schiller and Isador Stein, also In the party traveling to Los Angeles, were not hurt. The accident occurred when a tire of the New York car blew out, sending the machine to the left side of the highway where It sldeswlped another car before turning over in a ditch. Santa Claus (Continued Prom Page One) a downtown theater." .Christmas at state orphanages Is the year's highlight. There the children will gather around the tree Christmas eve and sing carols. "Silent Night, Holy Nltht," Is a favorite. There will be Christmas stories and the program will be climaxed with the distribution of gifts. The state resorts to subterfuge to perpetuate the age-old myth of Santa Claus. Each child tells his housemother what he would, like Santa Claus to bring him. In his Christinas stocking he usually finds at least one of the things closest to his heart's desire. Where feasible the inmates are allowed to go shopping under supervision of instructors to purchase their own gifts with money saved during the year from the little occupations the state encourages. Many of the gifts are made in the manual training shopn. A turkey dinner with all the trimmings Is a feature of Christmas day at all the Institutions. There also is freedom from routine duties. At each place there will bo gay holiday music. 31-kFarttu and Land For QCRMAH farmer wants backing to start C*od farm. Wrltt Box 303. Slaton.

Official government employment figures do not ,��how that many. Almost A Debate The late afternoon press conference developed into almost a debate on relief and budget conditions, with questions drawing the president out on many angles of the two problems. Some of his statements were: A published report that next year's budget would total $7.000,000,000 with a deficit of $1,500.000,000 was another bad guess and that he had not seen one speculative estimate on the budget that was right; His previous estimate of a public debt of $30.700.000 at, the end of this Iiscal year was not far off, and that many stories being printed about the public debt were plnln common deceptions; Tlio record of tho Public Works administration in Retting projects under contract by Dec. 15 was not bad.
