Wednesday Dec. 23, .1964 THE TIPTON DAILY TRIBUNE i r PAGE 5 Cheese Buffet Without Bother T HE TRAIN rattled across the Elkhorn Creek bridge and Woody Hansen casually noted that the creek was frozen solid, bank to bank. Like Anna has written, they had suffered a real spell of cold weather around Grandview. It always turned cold at Christmas. He took his bag from the overhead rack and sat down with it in his lap. Five more minutes and the train would be at the station. Egg^Npg Cups Of Cheer" With today's quick-to-fix cheeses, a hostess can he calm and cool, and still celebrate, despite the size of her party. Almost every liomemaker must step lively just to keep apace of all her tasks and friendships. But this hustle and rush needn't dim the sparkle of her entertaining:. With cheese in all forms, she can produce a buffet without bother around the clock—brunch, afternoon or evening club meeting;, or for dessert at dinner. The Borden Kitchen selects Camembert, Neufchatel, Cheddar, Liederkranz, Gouda, Gruyere and Roquefort, all colorfully twinned with fresh fruit. Merry Christmas ©n earth, peace, good will fo all men.

Alien's Shell Service Together they walked through the station and across the square. She stood there on the platform, proud and straight, oblivious of the snow that swirled about her, unashamed of the tears of joy that streamed down her face. Billy stood beside her,- tall for his age, just as proud and straight. "Welcome home, Woodrow. We've missed you very much." And she was in his arms. After a moment, he turned to his son. "Billy." "Welcome home, dad. I've missed you, too." They walked through the station and across the square. The house looked the same, except inside. It had been recently painted. "In honor of your homecoming, dad," Billy pointed out. "I'm sure of it, son. Now, how about sitting down. I'd like to talk to you for a minute." Anna put an arm arourid each of them. "You men can talk while you trim the Christmas tree. It's on the back porch. Will you get it, Billy?" "Sure, mom." He paused in the doorway. "You don't have to tell me anything dad. Mom has already told me. I know you never stole anything from old Mr. Smith and I know somehow we'll prove you didn't O.K.? Let's have a good Christmas." "O.K. Now fetch the tree like a good boy." A few neighbors dropped by in the next couple of days, longtime friends, old schoolmates. They brought Christmas gifts. They were friendly, yet Woody saw in their eyes the things Anna had written about Woody found himself thinking more and more that it would always be like this and he. didn't like the idea at all. He felt even worse when the phone rang on the afternoon before Christmas. "Woody? Sheriff Cranston. I have something important to talk to you about. I can't get away from the office. Can you get up here in an hour?" There were four men in the office, Sheriff Cranston, Mr. Wellington Smith, his former employer, and Dan Bailey," editor of the Grandview Gazette. These were solemn men, indeed. At least, Woody thought, they aren't hypocrites. Dan Bailey spoke first "Woody, there's a story about you on the front page of the Gazette. It won't be on the streets until tomorrow morning. But we thought you might like to have a copy before , then." Christmas Morn Billy Hansen' was first down the stairs come Christmas morning. He passed up the many gaily- wrapped packages and picked up the copy of the 'Grandview Gazette which had been carefully , placed among his gifts. '. } He began to read the story headlined "Christmas Gift." It began: "Police in nearby Winchester i have reported that a gunman seriously wounded in an attempted filling station holdup has made a beside confession admitting a series of robberies in the tri- county area, including, they say, holdup of Smith's Service, Grand- Have Tree Trimming Party with Canned Y-8 "We're going to decorate the tree'tonight . . . stop in."

A respected, local citizen, Woodrow Hansen, manager of the station, was convicted of the crime. The amount taken in the robbery was S2,000. Investigators found that Hansen had purchased a car earlier that day for cash, paying $1,950. He was unable to account for the money, other than to say that he had saved it in cash, to buy his family the new car for Christmas. Sheriff Cranston said it is his belief that further investigation will completely clear Hansen . . Later in the day, much later, the Hansens opened their gaily- wrapped Christmas presents—and paid host to the good citizens of Grandview.

Foster Furniture Store of the cimenff ALWAYS FIRST OUAUTV,; Dream about Yuletide and you'll immediately recall the illustrious flavor, the festive feeling that egg nog imparts to all gathering's, from a sophisticated party by candlelight to an informal after-school or television snack. The new canned egg nog, now being introduced, is basically the same as the refrigerated, nonalcoholic product f ouWl in dairy cases. Refrigerated egg nog is so eminently the party-time hallmark.. An undeniable elegance hovers about a brimming silver punch bowl and cups of egg nog. Chill and shake before serving and dust with fragrant nutmeg to ' bring out the fall, fine flavor, suggests the Borden Kitchen. Those who wish, may add spirits for extra good cheer. • What's In A Name "After dinner to the Duke's House, and there, saw 'Twelfth Night' acted well, though it be but a silly play and not related at all to the name." 'So wrote the English diarist, Samuel Pepys, in recording the events of January 1663. Later critics have taken a more enthusiastic view,of William Shakespeare's "T w e 1 fth Night" than did Mr. Pepys, but they have to agree that the comic gambol bears.no relationship to its title. Apparently, the play was so named because it had been written to be performed to Twelfth Night. Had Shakespeare chosen to do' it, he had ample materials at hand t£> create a play that was really about "Twelfth Night." Epiphany, the Twelfth Night of Christmas, traditionally the night when the Magi brought gifts to the Christ Child, was a most important festival in Shakespeare's time, and many customs surrounded it. 1 Characters ready for Shakespeare's pen were such traditional folk as "Patrick O'Ta- ter," "Lady Bluestocking," "Captain Blunderbuss," and others. At Twelfth Night frolics, the young people, especially, dressed' themselves in costumes to suggest these characters. Shakespeare, however, preferred to write of Sir Toby Belch, Malvolio, Olivia and others, and critics can only speculate upon what might have been if he had taken "Twelfth Night" for his theme as well as his title. IN GERMANY The celebration of a West German Chritstmas is filled with tradition, foremost of •which is the Christmas tree, dating back 400 years. Until recently, trees were trimmed with candles, and although artificial lighting for tree ornaments has been introduced, the candles are still preferred by many. IN JAPAN _ December 25 is not a national holiday in Japan, but you'd never know it from the colorful store decorations and the happy squeals of youngsters gifted by "Santa Claus San." Department stores may have as many as 100 Santas. OLD-FAS r4lON ED Christmas Wishes Q ^e- wish you the happiest of holidays, filled with all the friendly warmth of a good old-fashioned Christmas. BAXTER MOTORS "Iesous" "Iesous ahatonhia!" These words of joy and exultation come from Canada's first Christmas carol. If. they seem somewhat incomprehensible, the explanation is simple. They are written in the language of the Huron Indians. The meaning is, "Jesus is born!" The carol of the Huron nation was written by Father Jean Bre- ibcuf, Jesuit- missionary who came to the land of the Hurons in 1626. Father Brebeuf worked with the Hurons in the Canadian wilderness for 23 years, helping them and composing for them a poem in their own language. Then during an attack by the Iroquois, he was captured and tortured to death. In his martyrdom,-his words live on, for the Hurons remembered their carol, "Iesous aha-1 tonhia!" . May your Christmas be blessed with the joy and peace of that-Day, when the. angels sang the glory of God whose Son lay sleeping in a manger.
