But a few days ago the father was told little hope remained that Tommy's life might be saved. . Bt«( Place In at Home The Harings decided then the best place for their boy was at home, where they could fill his last weeks with all possible brightness. They said it was Tommy's own idea to celebrate Christmas now, the wish prompted by >he gift ol a tree from a local nursery. "Let's trim It so Santa Claus will see It and come—on Sunday," he coaxed. And the family said it would be a wonderful thing to do." AD Palmyra has caught the spirit. Cards and prescnls are pouring in. from sympathetic stranger* as well as from people in the Harings' neighborhood. More than 100 of those neighbors gave blood /or Tommy when he was In the hospital. In the hope it would help to spare him. Landlady's Curiosity Leads to Solution Of East Los Angeles Trunk Murder LOS ANGELES. Nov. 1.
