V PAGE 2 THE TIPTON DAILY TRIBUNE Wednesdoy Dec. 23,1964 Message Of Christmas Lives Anew "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 hasfr^ and found Alary, and Joseph, and' the Babe lying in a manger." Luke 2:16. From two who became H i s 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, aiid 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 will be read and studied once 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 barks 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 symbolizes the birth of Christ as the Light of the World, 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 t o 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." First lighting of the National Community Christmas Tree at the White House was observed in 1923, when Calvin Coolidge was President. • Cheerful Christmas Wishes ^Here's wishii Bob's Auts Parts Jleres wishing •p* a really wonderful holiday season {or you and yours. lX13.y you and your loved ones have a merry Christmas, and enjoy all the traditional festivities and delights of this glad time. GUILKEY COAL CO. Choose Your Business Gift With Core Probably the hardest gifts to choose during the holiday season are those which are necessary as a result of business relationships. Following are some basic hintB which might he helpful in the selection and distribution of business gifts. 3. Extravagant gifts smack of bribery. Thus it is often wise to keep your gifts of modest value in relation to the. importance of each recipient — whether he he an employee, prospect or customer. 2. It is best to choose your gifts individually, considering the tastes of each group of recipients, or preferably, of each individual recipient. 3. High quality gifts that are useful, durable, and dependable are your best choices. 4. If possible personalize each gift with the recipient's name or maybe just initials. 5. Package each gift securely and attractively. 6. A personal note, greeting card or at least a special gift label should accompany each package. 7. If possible deliver each gift with a "flair" — personally or by messenger — and preferably to each recipient's home rather than to his office. The key, then, to such gift- giving, would seem to be "Moderation in good taste." Merry Christmas (AY Christmas bring you a multitude of joys. £arl Cj.

The first twist is a "cookie pop." The second twist is an "easy-do" bar cookie. And the cookie that made history is the Toll House® Cookie, a scrumptious invention that all began when somebody added nuggets of semi-sweet chocolate chopped from a semi-sweet chocolate candy bar to a traditional drop cookie batter — and created the cookie that's now America's favorite. Semi-sweet chocolate morsels, created just to make the wonderful new cookie, have made history, too, in a whole new art of shortcut chocolate cookery.

YIELD: approximately 1}£ dozen 3" cookies. Early Paintings Tell the Christmas Story —And the Story of Changing Times From earliest times, artists found, in the story of the Nativity and the events surrounding it a source of inspiration and a challenge to their talents. The Madonna and Child, the Holy Family, the Magi, the manger scene—these are the subjects that have engendered some of the world's most famous paintings. And as students of both art and history know, such paintings not only portray a scene, they also tell something of Ihe* times in which they were painted. As the Middle Ages drew to a close and the Renaissance dawned, new light was spreading over the world. Mid-15th-century artists were turning from theories of painting which depicted more stylized poses and ornate detail, liberally touched with gilt, to .an apprbach which emphasized more realistic, lifelike figures and landscapes, as seen in paintings of humble peasants adoring the Christ Child, true- to life stable animals and even blacksmiths working in the background of the manger. In "Adoration of the Magi," a painting by Giovanni di Paolo which is now in the National Gallery of Art. in Washington, D.C., the Three Kings are depicted in' an elaborate, decorative style. The background of the painting, however, shows a more lifelike interpretation. The landscape of fields dotted with crops, criss-crossed with roads and bathed in sunlight is refreshing—and a treatment new to the times. Another "The Adoration of the Magi" at the National Gallery is even more indicative of a world in transition. This tondo (circu­ lar) painting was begun by one artist, Fra Angelico, and finished by another, Fra Filippo Lippi. The principal part of the painting, attributed to Fra Angelico, has an idealized, otherworldly atmosphere. .Realism appears in the solid, substantial figures of the foreground — typically Renaissance forms, the work of Fra Filippo. These "Adorations" were both painted in tempera on wood. Tempera, a mixture of pigments and dyes with egg yolk to produce a dull finish on a surface prepared with egg white for ad hesion, was a common medium for medivial Italian artists. Jn "The Nativity," also in the National Gallery, the Flemish artist Petrus Christus used oil paints on wood, thus marking another advance of the early Renaissance. . Flemish artists were the first to use oil exten siyely in painting; formerly, "it had been used only in glazes for tempera paintings. A study of "The Nativity' shows that the figures of Pet rus' paintings are very natural and realistic. Joseph is an ordinary Flemish peasant, the Christ Child a lifelike new-born Baby. Space perspective, too, begins to show a'more realistic treatment. f To achieve 'greater realism these 15th century artists be came the technicians and sci entists of their age. They ground and mixed their own pigments' to achieve the colors they wanted. And they carefully observed nature, even undertaking anatomical studies. Thus, as the darkness of the Middle Ages faded, artists, in more than one way, spread the light of the Renaissance. Ideas Vary On Customs Of Yule Some people enjoy .a White Christmas, while some people go swimming or picnicking on December 25. Some people say it's traditional to serve turkey at the holiday feast, while some people favor a Christmas goose, and still others contend that carp'or fried eel is the very thing for a tasty Yuletide dish Around the world, Christmas customs vary, but on one point nearly all are agreed. It's a season to celebrate. . -In the United • States and Canada the "melting pot" origins of the population result in a medley of Christmas traditions from all over. Americans and Canadians from Central Europe still prepare • their traditional Yuletide foods with carp, while those from 'Italy might hanker for some Christmas capitoni, made with fried eels. V Especially during . a severe winter, residents of the Northern U.S. and Canada would be glad to change places, or at least change weather, with those Australians, South Americans and others who enjoy summer activities at Christmas. On the other hand, North Americans have made their own contributions to Christmas around the world. For instance, there's Santa, white-bearded and red-suited, who is now replacing St. Nicholas and other Yule gift givers in many countries. . IN GREECE Young people of Greece fore tell their romantic future at Christmas by tossing olive leaves on the burning Yule log. Tradition decrees that if 'the leaves, symbolizing the girl-and man, curl toward each other, the lovers can expect their happiness to be long lived. If the leaves burn apart, their romance may be fraught with difficulties. The best result, how ever is if the leaves burn to a crisp. This means their love is deep and all-enduring. jd 'ike the Wise Men, let us marvel anew at Ihe miracle of Christmas. Thompson's Northside Grocery May cace and Joy be Yours at Christmas Compton's Barber Shop Little Towns Of Bethlehem Celebrate Several states, all over the United States, can boast of having their very own little town of Bethlehem.; S In New * England,' for example, therell ;a' : place named Bethlehem in New Hampshire, and another in Connecticut. Moving across country, Beth- lehems are found in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Kentucky, Mississippi, Georgia, Indiana and Iowa. •People from nearby communities and neighboring s..t a t e s flock to Bethlehem, Conn., every Christmas to have their greeting card envelopes imprinted with a special seasonal message, then mailed from the town post office. Last year, due to the demand, there were ten different greeting designs available for Christmas card senders. Creche Is Constructed Also contributing to the holiday atmosphere in Connecticut's semi-official Christmas mas town, is the creche constructed by nuns at a nearby Benedictine monastery. In the creche, which emphasizes the primitive simplicity of the Nativity, are life-sized figures of the Virgin and Joseph, dressed in peasant garb, and a crib with the Christ j Child, covered by a bright patchwork quilt. At Christmas, the nuns also make, and offer for sale, liturgically-inspired tree ornaments. Each Christmas, Bethlehem, Pa., is the scene of an impressive candlelight carol and communion service. Traditional Since 1741 Celebrated, complete with organ and orchestral music, in the Central Moravian Church, it has been a tradition since 1741, when Count Nicholas von Zinzedorf, holding a lighted candle, led his people into a cabin and named their settlement Bethlehem- in hoonor of the Christ Child. Decorated trees also play an mportant part during Bethle hem's nationally. f am o u s Christmas festival on the Hill- to-Hill bridge connecting various parts of the city. Every Christmas since 1951, a 60-foot star erected by townspeople has guided visitors to Bethlehem, Georgia. On Christmas night, a carol service is held ' beneath t h e star. . A very joyous Christmas to you and your kin. May the spirit ' of the season remain with you all through Uia coming new year, and may -it be a prosperous one.
