Smith lead the game from the "stage" which Is marked off with a piece of white tape, 'Special' Captivates Kids Entertaining more than 70 preschoolers was a challenge met with ingenuity and enthusiasm by Lois Schier and Margaret Smith Thursday. Lois, children's librarian at the Hays Public Library planned two half-hour "Christmas Specials" for preschoolers and kindergartners. , The first "special'.', "presented'at 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m., played to an attentive and responsive audience. The fast-paced half hour included finger plays, songs, a puppet chat, a story about Barney the mouse that the children helped "read," a play about Claud 'the dog, and a poem about a Christmas stocking. Lois said she found some of the games in source materials, and others, like the finger plays, are standard favorites which she adapted for Christmas. "With these guys, you can't repeat too much because they'll remember what you did last time," she said. "Next week, we'll have a different program, and we'll have it rearranged. We'll outsmart them." A white tape line that marks off the stage helps Lois and Margi maintain control of the .children. The audience must stay behind the white line, although an occasional small foot crosses over during the activity. "We have to have that line," Lois said. "All the children want to get up and see what's really behind the puppet stage and the chimney." At the end of the program, children received favors made by grade schoolstudents that come to the library in the afternoons. The second "Christmas Special" will be December 16 at 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Parents are invited to attend with their children. PART OF THE JOY of Christmas is sharing and Hays residents have a special opportunity, Dozens of foreign students will spend the holidays and mid-year break in Hays in comparative loneliness. Living in a college residence hall may be fun during the school year, but certainly less than joyful when the dining rooms are closed and only a handful of students remain. It's a long way to walk to the nearest restaurant and continued solitude can be oppressive. If you'd like to invite one or more of these students to your home for a meal, a few hours to visit, or to take a short trip with you, call Dorothy Knoll, Adviser to Foreign Students at Fort Hays State, at 628-4276. She'll be there throughout the vacation period, except for December 24 and 31. College classes end next week and the new semester doesn't open until January 17. ANOTHER FORM OF SHARING is through recipes and with all the tasting parties and covered dish luncheons this month, there are some mighty special goodies being offered. Thanks to a number of friends, this column :will carry several of these recipes in the next two or three weeks.
