Gala Plans for Nursing Homes— Carolers to Spread Yule Joy Among Elders By Staff Writer The Christmas atmosphere which soon will be permeating Carroll will spread also to the seven nursing or rest homes now being operated in the city. Colorful decorations both inside and outside, as well as gaily decorated Christmas trees will appear for the enjoyment of the many men and women who reside in the homes as well as the home per­ sonnel and visitors. Those who are shut-in because of illness or age will be hearing the traditional music of Christmas when earoling groups from youth and adult organizations and churches make their rounds. Among these will be the Jaycees and their wives, who expect to sing at all of the homes between 6:30 and 9 one evening about a week before Christmas. Adding to the enjoyment of the season will be the visits of other groups and individuals, relatives and friends; and many of the residents will be remembered with special gifts and greeting cards. Those who are able always enjoy being taken about the city to see the Yule lighting displays. Most of the homes usually have their own parties for the residents able to participate. A holiday buffet and program for residents and their immediate families are being planned at the Carroll Health Center, Carroll's newest facility. Christmas Day menus in the various homes will be featuring traditional favorites such as turkey, ham, duck or chicken with all the trimmings, for those whose diets permit. Colorful tray favors contributed by organizations add a festive touch to the holiday meals. The homes now in operation include Carroll Health Center, 2241 North West Street; Carroll Manor, 500 Valley Drive; Foley Rest Home, 715 North Carroll; Harms Rest Home, 827 North Carroll; Perry Nursing Home, 109 North Main; Spieker Nursing Home, 225 North Walnut; and St. Anthony Nursing Home, 406 East Anthony. Madame Regrets and Says it in The Times By DAVID LANCASHIRE (Associated Press Writer) LONDON, ENG. (AP) - Britons who forget to send their Christmas cards until it is too late — or who can't be bothered to send any at all — have an easy way out. They just place a classified advertisement in The Times of London. Christmas card advertisements in the prestigious newspaper have become practically as much a tradition as Christmas cards themselves, with words of good cheer scattered among the ads for apartments in Belgravia, Rolls Royces for sale or companions wanted for hitch-hiking treks to Afghanistan. You can find practically anything in the Times ads. But Christmas greetings ads are rare or nonexistent in other British newspapers. "Fatima Tina Hales-Tooke, lately of Chesham Bois, Buck­ inghamshire, and now living in Beirut, Lebanon, extends her greetings for Christmas and the New Year to all family and friends throughout the world," says a fairly typical ad. Most, however, simply state that Mr. and Mrs. So-and-so are not sending Christmas cards this year, but extend greetings to their friends.

Night Till 9 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Other Weekdays intend to donate to charity the money they would have spent on cards, or apologize that illness or trips abroad have prevented them from mailing the usual greetings. The most impressive ads appear not in the usual advertising columns, but beneath the Court Circulars that announce the daily doings of Queen Elizabeth II and her family. Beneath a palace announce­ ment last December that Princess Margaret had attended the Save Rave pop concert for charity ran the following: "Mr. Frederick J. Stephens of Cross- acres, Pyrford Woods, Woking, Surrey, is not sending Christmas cards this year. He wishes his relatives and friends a merry Christmas and a very happy New Year." Non-senders of cards who want to tell their friends they aren't sending cards, and who want to do it beneath the lion and unicorn royal crest on the Court Circular page, have to pay two pounds (4.80 dollars) a line for their greetings. In the regular columns it costs 28 shillings (3.36 dollars) a line. Many of those who use the Court Circular page are titled, and their ads get printed above ones placed by commoners. Just under an announcement last Christmas season that the Duke and Duchess of Kent had seen a James Bond movie was an ad saying the Duke and Duchess of Bedford regretted they wouldn't be sending Christmas cards because of a prolonged trip overseas. Some ads are aimed at special groups, Mr. and Mrs. Phillip Shane Woodwall last December advertised Merry Christmas wishes to all supporters of the Millwall soccer team. The Pipe Club of Great Britain wished good smoking in 1970 to anyone who happened to read the ad. Esmond Drury said he wished "all his 847 past pupils and friends a happy Christmas and good fishing in the New Year." Other ads indicate the advertiser has been overwhelmed by the Christmas rush, such as: "Dr. and Mrs. Leslie D, Weath- erhad regret they cannot cope with the sending of Christmas cards this year." Or: "Thomas Widdington Sheridan sends Christmas greetings to everybody and wishes each a more prosperous New Year than he will have. No money. No cards." Some are puzzling, such as: "Mr. and Mrs. F. H. Towler LS21 SQZ. Christmas cards being dispatched by computer. V 1 EARLY SHOPPERS Bonus G Thursday Friday Saturday Only!!
