In addition, you will need an empty frozen juice can. colored construction paper, gold, red and green Christmas tape. "Q- Tips" cotton swabs, white and red plastic tape, black ink, shirt cardboard and some glue. King Balthazar requires the squared box. Blue and purple construction paper are glued on the box to make his royal robes. White plastic tape rims the box cover to make his collar. The head is constructed with a piece of shirt cardboard folded into an open square. The "ermine" is made by removing the tips from cotton swabs and dotting them with black ink. When dry, paste in place. Although each king is unique, the technique for constructing the crown and face of each is the same. An easy way to do faces, the design studio tells us, is to use a cotton swab as a tiny paint brush. Just dip it in black ink and begin. Crowns are two inches high. Cut a length of gold tape long enough to circle the top of each head, attach the gummed side to a piece of construction paper for firmness, then glue crown in place. To decorate crowns, dip cotton swabs in gold paint, allow to dry, then glue in place. "Jewels" are bits of gummed red and green Christmas tape. The Wise Man, King Gasper, is made on a round cereal box base. After wrapping the box in colorful construction paper "robes," cover smaller frozen juice can with lighter toned paper and glue to cereal box to ! form head. The "ermine" col- j lar is made by cutting a U- shape piece of white construction paper about an inch and a quarter wide and 12 inches long. Drape it around the box and pinch a crease at the neckline. "Ermine" tails are the tips of cotton swabs glued !n place. Melchior, the King, is made by wrapping a tall box in gold and red paper. His eyebrows, moustache and beard are made by snipping cotton swabs in half and gluing in place. \ Sunglasses I for Yule is Not Bad Idea Titoe* MertM, C«rrtlt, It. Wednesday, Nov. IS, 1970 . .

This year, the "Now' Christmas present should be a great gift by itself, as well as a gift that reflects warm thoughts, fantastic ideas and a subtle compliment or two. This groovy gift doesn't have to be expensive, but it should be as unique and swinging as the person gifted. Sminds like a tall enter, doesn't it? It is. But all it takes is some organized thought before you go wandering out Into the never-never land tor Christmas shopping. Start by crossing out all the "old standards" — perennial Christmas presents which have been dulled by repetition—like ties, perfume, lingerie, socks, stockings, wool mufflers and earnings. Now, that you've scratched your best ideas, where can you go? Well, if she's a young fashionable, how about a fun fashion item like sunglasses? That's right — sunglasses for Christmas! You can also call them "cosmetic" shades or fashion specs. But, no matter what the name, shades are an accessory necessity for that "together" look. They're perfect with pants, sensational with shirtdresses and fabulous with furs. What's more they're an added dimension in makeup and mystery for eyes. If you rtally want to b* a successful Santa, choose a whole wardrobe of shades for all her moods and fashion fancies. For swinging parties, it's big round "Crystal-Eyes" party-specs in tints of blue, pink and lavender while a pair of aviator shades with topaz tinted lenses are perfect for her more sultry moments. And, for the days she feels a bit traditional, make sure she has a pair of classic shaped "Aquarius" shades in tortoise. It all adds up to a groovy gift, that's unique and fun and probably well within your budget. TO YOUR HEALTH A toast, the kind given when the glass is raised, comes from toast, the kind frequently burned in the morning. The term dates to Stuart's time in England, when chunks of bread were toasted over the fire, then dropped on top of cups of wine or liquor. The toasts are still with us, but the bread has been replaced with olives, onions, and cherries. Society Plans Dinner Meeting (Time* Herald Newt Service) AUBURN — The November meeting of St. Mary's Altar Society was held Monday evening following the evening mass on All Souls Day. It was decided by the members that the December meeting would be a dinner meeting at 6:30 p.m. with the meal to be catered and the members only need to bring their own table service. A gift exchange will also be a part of the evening program. The president reminded the group that the clothing drive would be on until Thanksgiving. The clothing may be left in the church basement any time. The food shower for the Sisters is in effect now and items should be brought in as soon as possible. The families whose last names begin with "A" to "M" are to furnish food. Refreshments were served by St. Ann's group with Mrs. Dave Wernimont, chairman. Virginia Tharnish was program chairman, and the group played court whist. Mrs. Richard WUIT received the door prize. Book Review at Elizabeth Circle (Times Herald Newr Service) MANNING—Pam Rauch was hostess to Elizabeth Circle of the Methodist Women on Nov. 12. Harriet Gross was a guest and reviewed the book "Who Shall Live?" put out by the American Friends Service Committee. Each member gave a thought on the poulation explosion. Members were reminded of the Dec. 4 WSCS bazaar, and asked to sell the tickets allotted to them. The Dec. 3 meeting will be at the home of Sandra Hass. Spices Make Savory Gift for Holiday A selection of glass-packed spices arranged in an attractive spice rack makes a decorative kitchen gift for the culinary artist on your Christmas list. All varieties of spice are available today in glass jars, reports the Glass Container Manufacturers Institute. And because many of the jars are elegantly designed, more and more homemakers are storing spices in full view in the kitchen. Even the colorful spicfes they contain add to the decor. The apothecary type spice jar is especially decorative. However, no matter what type of glass jar you select, it can be tightly resealed to preserve flavor and protect spices from moisture and other damage, a necessary consideration. Another advantage in keeping spices in glass jars is that the contents can be seen at a glance. The rack plays its part in obviating a state of clutter and confusion in the kitchen cabinet. A trip to the supermarket will uncover a wide array of spice varieties that can be included in your gift selection. The most frequently used spices in the American kitchen are bay leaf, parsley flakes, cayenne, chili, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, curry, ginger, mustard, paprika, sage, thyme, poultry seasonings and oregano. Spice racks that hold from six to 60 spice jars are carried in most department stores and specialty shops. Sixteen members of the Busy Thimbles met at the Church on Thursday, Nov. 12. Minnie Jensen presented a Thanksgiving devotion "Remember Thy Creator". The group worked on their various quilting and embroidery projects. They have ordered fruit cakes for sale during the holiday season. An all day sewing session with a potluck will be held on Nov. 19. Emma Bartels was lunch hostess, using a Thanksgiving theme in her decorations. 240 A. Form For Sale LOCATED IN THE DUNLAP AREA About 125 acres crop land—balance in pasture.
