HAYS TAXI SERVICE 628-3712 6 a.m.-Midnight Serving Ellis County Cut out for future use A number of Christmas stockings in Hays will have, been filled by the stork when Santa arrives on Christmas, Eve. Babies born in Hadley Regional Medical Center during the holiday season have been going home in red flannel Christmas stockings. Babies born in St. Anthony hospital on Christmas Eve artd Christmas day also will go home in Christmas booties this year. Mrs. Lawrence Younger Sr., a member of the Hadley auxiliary, said the auxiliary wanted to do something special for Christmas babies, and. they came up'with ,the idea at a meeting eight years ago. Mrs. Younger cut a model stocking out of paper and the auxiliary liked it. She has been making the stockings every since that meeting, and says she likes doing it. • Mrs. Younger, who can't sew from a pattern, "just cuts the pieces for the stockings until they fit together." Each one takes about an hour to make. The first year Mrs. Younger made only six stockings. This year she made 15. "That's mostly what I did all of last week," she said. The increase, in part, has resulted because the stockings decorate the Hadley nursery a little; earlier each year. . The stockings, made of soft red flannel, have a white top trimmed with gold cord and a bell. Nurses in the maternity ward, who use the stockings as crib covers so they won't become soiled before the trip home, say the babies love to hear the bells when they move. Twelve Christmas booties were made by nurses at the hospital. This is the first year holiday babies at St. Anthony Hospital will go home in special packages. The St. Anthony auxiliary sends mesh stockings filled with candy home with Christmas babies, and the cribs are decorated with candy canes.
