(UPI) - The snows came on Christmas Eve and gave President Ford and this Rocky Mountain ski village the white Christmas they were dreaming of. Ford said that after an hour of unwrapping presents around the family tree he was heading for the slopes, which until Friday night were barren of fresh snow. "I feel good," Ford said as the first flakes fell in a snowfall Ford and innkeepers had been hoping for. They even had called in the Red Ute Indians for a snow dance to end the white blight. "It's been a great year, and I hope 1977 is a very, very happy, healthy and prosperous year for people not only in the United States but throughout the world." "We made a lot of progress in 1976, and I'm absolutely certain that 215 million Americans can have a great, good merry Christmas and a wonderful new year," the President said in an off-the- cuff 'Christmas message spoken at the foot of the ski runs. , A reporter called out, "And we haven't heard the last of Gerald Ford?" The President smiled, turned his head over the furry shoulder of his Alaskan wolf coat, said, "I'll be around," and marched off into the falling white. First reports* from the ski slopes told of several inches of new snow. Ford showed no sign of the "bumped hip" suffered in a ski tumble Wednesday. A reporter „ said, "You don't seem to be limping." The President laughed and —' in a gesture recalling how President Lyndon Johnson once showed his surgery scars to the press — jokingly made as if to unbuttton his jacket. Dennis The Menace ..

William Lukash, the White House physician, ,shook his head when asked if the bruised hip had been serious. "No, no, no, nothing serious. Just a couple of bumps," Lukash said. Ford and his wife Betty, after separate last-minute Christmas shopping hikes into Vail — away from of the eyes of their family, but watched by applauding crowds of tourists and townspeople — dined Christmas Eve at the home of friends. The meal was catered by a French chef and this caused local gourmets some distress. The chef's own restaurant, due to his absence, had to scratch from the menu its specialty, Grand Marfiier souffles. After the dinner and some caroling by Cub Scouts, the Fords went to midnight church services as they have each Christmas Eve of their nine previous Vail Yuletide > holidays. Destiny Meeting At Beloit January 6 The All Purpose Room of Beloit Elementary School is the site and Mr. and Mrs. Gale Applebee are the hosts for a 7:30 p.m. January 6 meeting on the "destiny" of Fort Hays State College. All friends and alumni of Fort Hays State are invited and encouraged to attend the discussion which includes a new slide show about the institution. Featured speaker is Carters Celebrate PLAINS, Ga. (UPI) — Jimmy Carter gathered his family — minus one — together for a traditional Christmas celebration Saturday mindful that presidential responsibilities are looming less than one month away. "Miss Lillian," Carter's 78- year old mother will be absent because of some arthritic discomfort which has forced her to a nearby hospital for treatment. But that wasn't expected to stop the clan from bringing Christmas to her during the* day. "Miss Lillian," who traditionally invites her family to a grits and sausage Christmas breakfast, had to forego that annual festivity this year, but gift-bearing family members were expected to visit the hospital in nearby Americus, Ga., to make the occasion a special one. For the president-elect it was a day of many celebrations. Christmas dinner was planned at noon in the home of Rosalynn Carter's mother, "Miss Allie." The holiday feast included turkey, ham, cornbread dressing, rice with giblet gravy, cranberry sauce, ambrosia and Japanese fruit cake. In the evening the floating Christmas celebration adjourns to the ranch style home of the president-elect. FHS President G.W. Tomanek. He will be accompanied by Dr. Harold Eickhoff, new Vice President for Academic Affairs, and Ronald Plughoft, Executive Assistant to the President. According to Tomanek, the meeting is important and any persort interested in the future of Fort Hays State College is invited. "We're taking a long, hard look at what we should be doing, the directions we should be pursuing, what services we can provide, and any number of other aspects relating to the college and western Kansas. We choose not to proceed with plans and programs without the input of friends and alumni of our college.Thus, I ask that anyone interested in the future of one of the finest institutions in Kansas and midwest for that matter, be with us to discuss our destiny." Last Minute Rush President Gerald Ford does some last minute Christmas shopping on Christmas eve in Vail Village Friday. The first family is spending the Christmas holiday at this ski resort. (UPI Photo) Ann landers Has An Answer Squirrel Cage In 1955, the year Ann Landers began writing this column, she wrote a special essay for Christmas Day. Reader response was extremely rewarding and she has reprinted the column annually, with topical modifications. This is Ann's Christmas message for 1976. Today is Christmas. All about us we hear talk of peace on Earth, good will .toward men. Yet we know full well in many parts of the world there is no peace and in the hearts of many men there is not enough good will. Our youth insist) that civilization is out of joint. They resent having to live in a world they neVer made. But what generation ever made the world it has to live in? We congratulate ourselves that we are the richest, most productive, most powerful nation in the world, but what progress have we made?

This is the age of the big rip- off, the uncommitted and the undressed. The blurring of the sexes. Some fear we are heading toward social decay, going the way of the Romans and the Babylonians. Others applaud the "new marality" and stare the "squares" down with eyes like hypodermic needles. They say the sex revolution is sumptomatic of a maturing society, that it promises creativity and better mental health. But will that promise be kept — or are we overloading the circuits and promoting additional guilt and anxiety in those who cannot tolerate so much exposure? One of the.most encouraging signs of our times is that our campuses are once again places of higher learning. Much of the hostility and anger of the late '60s is gone. Our students have settled down to serious business. That is the good news. The bad news is that drug abuse has shifted from the campuses to the high schools and the junior highs. Now it's the 14, 15 and 16-year-olds who are turning to drugs to "expand their minds," or just to turn on. In reality- they have merely opted to anesthetize themselves against the pain of growing up and accepting responsibility. More bad news is that VD is epidemic in many areas. Gonorrhea is the second most prevalent infectious disease in the United States. (The common cold is first). Yet, some parents are still fighting six education in public schools because they "don't want kids to get ideas." Every day each of us makes decisions that determine the direction in which our 'lives will move. No one, no matter how wise or how highly principled, can make the right decision every time. To err is no disgrace. The disgrace lies in not learning from our mistakes, not recovering from our defeats, not picking ourselves up, brushing ourselves off ( and trying again. Since this is a problem column, I spend the greater part of every day with grief and trouble. Does it depress me? No, it does not. After 21 years I still find this work challenging and immensely rewarding. I realize .that many people who write don't want advice. They merely need someone to listen. I have been entrusted with the largest reading audience in the world. What a unique opportunity to educate, to shine a' spotlight on ignorance and fear, to comfort the afflicted and afflict the com-- fortable. There is no greater satisfaction than to serve, and I will continue to do my best. Hirohito Marks 50th Anniversary TOKYO (UPI) - Emperor Hirohito observed the 50th anniversary of his ascension to the throne on a rainy Christmas Day with a visit to his father's tomb.
