Cord of Thonkf 1.00 Notlcei 1.00 The message of Christmas "And lo, the Star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young Child was." Matthew 2:9. "And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the Babe lying in a manger." Luke 2:16. From two who became His disciples come the words that tell the story of that Holy Night, the first Christmas. Matthew, the tax collector wrote of the Star that shone in the east, and of wise men who followed it to find and worship Him. Luke the Physician wrote of shepherds watching in the fields and herald angels singing in the heavens. At church services during this Christmas season the words of the tax collector and the physician have been read and studied again and again, with ever-deepening meaning. ' ' And as the story is told anew, it is also reflected in the many observances of Christmas, both in churches and in homes. The joyful sound of carols harks back to the first of all carols, the words of the heavenly host, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. The glow of candles symbolized the birth of Christ as the light of the world, and it also mirrors the eternal gleam of the Star of Bethlehem. The spirit of giving takes guidance from the gifts of the Wise Men, who brought gold, frankincense and myrrh to Him. Above all,at Christmas, mankind experiences once again the reverence, wonder and rejoicing of the wise men, of whom Matthew says, "And when they were come into the house, they saw the young Child with Mary his mother, and fell down and worshipped Him."

They were In the midst of trying to ralM money by donation to erect a fitting memorial above the •unken hulk of the battleship Arl- tona In memory of those American men who lost their lives as a result of the Japanese sneak attack on Pearl Harbor. Since that time, the memorial has been built. The United States Is planning currently to build a 100-foot- tall monument on the Island of Guam, The monument, costing $1 million to build, will honor the 400,000 men who lost their lives in the South Pacific during World War II. The monument honors 400,000 Japanese dead, not American dead. The plan has met opposition from at least one veterans' organization. They question the propriety of building a monument to men who tried to destroy our country. It is fine that the United States help Japan rebuild her broken country after the war. Since then, Japan has become a valued U. S. ally. But, the suitability of building a monument to our one-time enemies is questlonable-and only one generation removed from Pearl Harbor. Wednesday's Humboldt Republican carried an item about 30,000 pieces of mall being cancelled at the Humboldt post office on December IB, 1950. That wu the year the now Assistant Postmaster Dale Joansen recalls a lot of Christmas gifts didn't arrive before Christmas just simply because they were mailed too late.
