BDNESDAY, DECEMBER 19, 1945. THE POSTVILLE HERALD, POSTVILLE, IOWA. PAGE SEVEN. |r«r the nermld'i Homemakers by Iowa SUte College Home Economists It 's Yours To Keep— CHRISTMAS That's right. Wc said it belonged to you—Christmas. You and millions of children like you. You play a major role In making Christmas "merry." Christmas belongs to children. .To them, it's anticipation, mystery, • Jpve, happy giving, beautiful sights and ljpvftly sounds. It's Christmas. JOSEPH B.

Sometimes Santa Claus seems to crowd the religious meaning of Christmas out of children's minds. For this reason some parents do not allow their children to believe in Santa. Neither extreme seems necessary. Your own childhood pleasure in Santa probably did not keep you from learning and loving the story of the Christ Child as well. A little four year old girl has heard great deal about Santa. But .her parents thought she was too young to understand the religious meaning of Christmas. They were surprised when she came home from Sunday School completely entranced with the story of the Christ Child. 'Mother," she sold, "I believe I like the Little Lord Jesus better than Santa." In some families the story of Holy Night is read together on every Christmas Eve. It beautifully read every child catches some of the true significance of Christmas. As the story is repeated year after year, the child understands it better. It finally becomes an important part of his childhood memories of home. To him it represents the devotional side of the holiday while Santa represents the gaiety which children also need. The Christmas story probably should be given in the words of the Bible. No other book tells it so well. However, if parents are looking for Bible stories to read or tell to children they will be interested in the following books. These books arc written in dignified style, and use as much direct quotation from the Bible as possible. They are suitable for reading to children around four to six years of age. The first two are written by Llllie A.-Ferris. One is called "Stories From the Old Testament." The other is "Stories From the New Testament." They are published by Monk-Platt Company and cost $1.25 each. Another great .favorite of children Is called "The Christ Child." This book is based on the Matthew and Luke versions and contains beautiful pictures. Children ask their parents to read this story over and over. This book is published by Doublcday, Doran and Company, of New York. It costs around $2.00. ON ITS BACK (OR TOP.) A pickup driven by Henry Vanzee and an automobile driven by Don Gibau of St. 'Paul, Minn., collided on the highway near Hospcrs. It is not unusual for n car to skid 90 feet, but when it skids that distance on its top, that's news. None of the occupants of the car or pickup were injured. However, it is doubtful if the automobile, following»its antics, can be repaired. HAVE SEED TESTED NOW, * AVOID RUSH AT ISC LAB The farmer who wants to sell seed on his home form is required by the Iowa Seed Law, revised 4 years ago, cither to label each bag or to post a placard at the bin giving information as to the quality of the seed. Information required in the labeling, says Dr. R. H. Porter, head of the Iowa State College seed laboratory, is: Rate of occurrence of secondary noxious weeds; percentage germination, including hard seeds when present, and a guarantee that the seed is free from the seeds of primary noxious weeds. To comply, the farmer must either test the seed himself or submit samples to a laboratory for testing. The Iowa State seed laboratory is equipped this year to render prompt service if samples to be tested are evenly distributed throughout the fall and winter months. That means farmers who want seed tested can cooperate by sending seed samples of clover, timothy and oats as soon as harvest is over. The last legislature authorized a fee of $1 per sample for testing. This represents a little over half of the actual cost, with the balance made up by the college through its regular budget. Iowa has 25 radio broadcasting stations located in 18 different cities. Prices of feeder cattle all fall have been one to two dollars above lost year. Because of wet corn, marketing of fed stuff probably will be heavy during the winter. No, if your hlrdt trt htirlty ' Inhsttd with Itrot roundworm! or | I etui wormi, ihty limply annot Uy thtlr but.

It's sharing that brings a glow of inner warmth which is the gift of Christmas. Too 'often, say Iowa State College home economists, it's the adults in the home who have the fun of "doing" while the children watch and wait. And children, you know, are rather poor spectators. Christmas really is 'for the children. And sometimes adults forget thai when they plan the holiday color scheme or decorate the Christmas tree. There's no place left in the commercial Christmas artistry for the small child's crude paper chains or his worn string of popcorn or bruised cranberries. They don't fit in with the adults' fine trimmings. But go back to your childhood days. Don't you remember best the Christmas you had a part in? The specialties you always had a hand in fixing? The custom your family observed together? Modern-day Child. Perhaps the modern-day child is being robbed at Christmas time. Doing things together—that's what the children need. In fact, that's what the entire family needs. It tics the family together—gives emotional warmth and a feeling of "belonging- ness" important in any family. With children and all sharing in the holiday preparation, everyone feels needed and important, resulting in immeasurable joy and happiness. Young parents, too, have a problem. There may be a conflict as to traditions and customs. Which way do they turn—to her parents' home, his or a Christmas of their own? Christmas Day. It can be easily settled where families live close together by going to one grandparents on Christmas eve and the other on Christmas day. But more important than this decision Is a Christmas of their own. Start while children arc toddlers, say child development specialists, to make a special Christmas in your own home. Start your own traditions, your own special shared activities. And start them now so Christmas and home are inseparable in your child's mind. Christmas is special. So keep it that way, 'specially for children. >r. R. F.
