Herald, Carrol!, la. *J Wednesday, Nov. 18, 1970 —Staff Photo NEIGHBORHOOD FRIENDS Kathy Shymanski (center) and Christy Loneman (right) are interested in the Christmas storybook being shown to them by Mrs. Fred G. Brickman, children's librarian at the Carroll Public Library. They are holding two of the many Christmas books which the libarary has to offer for hours of pleasant holiday reading. The girls, both six years old and in first grade at Holy Spirit School, are daughters of Mr. and Mrs. James Shymanski and Mr. and Mrs. Ervin Loneman. Christian Symbols for Church Trees MANNING - A second church in Manning will decorate its Yuletide tree with the. Christian symbols of gold and white called Chrismons. Chrismons (Christ Monograms) will be used this year on the tree of Sacred Heart Parish. They were used last year by Zion Lutheran Church. Several members of the Sacred Heart Rosary and Altar Society attended a .convention in Illinois, where their Chris­ mons were displayed at a workshop. The group became enthused about the symbols, but were unaware that they were being used by Zion Church. Work on the symbols was delegated to Mrs. Joe Horbach, who has been assisted in making the intricate symbols by her neighbor, Mrs. Joe Stein. The women have also conferred a number of times with Mrs. John Weible, who lives close to them and who was in charge of making the symbols for the Lutheran Church. Materials used in the symbols are white stryofoan, gold beads, in various sizes, pearls, gold sequins and irideecents, gold foil and gold net. Thus far the women have made 24 of the symbols, and plan on a good number more before the holiday season. They will be placed on an evergreen tree, presumably in the new Sacred Heart CCD Center. The tree will be lighted with clear white lights. The decorations vary in size and complexity. There are small gold orbs with white styrofoam atop; shepherd's crooks of pearl and gold beads; large eight pointed stars in gold; the Cross Triumphant — a pearl cross on a gold orb; A Sun of Righteousness with gold foil rays; the Chi Rho, with Alpha and Omega, done in gold net; the Latin Cross with Alpha and Omega; a beaded circle with center monogram; a large gold crown; a pearl creche hanging in a gold square; stars of pearls, centered with a rose; large circular symbols featuring grapes and wheat, and the large symbol featuring a gold scaled fish, the Christian sign in the times of Christ. Three gold tinsel fish are entwined to make a circle denoting eternity. A Chi Rho covered with net and gold butterflies signifies the resurrection. Each decoration takes time and patience. Some take hours to complete. Mrs. Horbach and Mrs. Stein work at them whenever time permits. They are folded gently in tissue paper and stored away in large boxes awaiting the holiday season. Manning Gets Ready for the Holiday Season MANNING — The Manning Community School will close on Dec. 23 for the holiday season, and will reconvene on Jan. 4. Each class will have a Christmas party in the elementary school, with a lighted tree and gift exchange. Upper grades will have Christmas programs, a tree and treats. The churches of Manning will have their usual annual Christmas programs during the week preceding the holiday. No dates have been set as yet for these. Manning merchants will have their usual holiday promotions, with the Santa Claus house erected on Main Street, as in past years. The Manning Jaycees will cooperate with the Chamber of Commerce in the holiday activities. —Staff Photo A GREAT BOON to Carroll Post Office personnel this holiday season will be the new parcel conveyor, which is electrically operated. Wendell Heuton is shown removing a parcel from the comfortable work- level to which it has been conveyed after being dumped from an incoming mail sack. The parcels taken from the conveyor are sorted into the dispatch sacks shown at left. The conveyor is one of the new pieces of equipment installed in Carroll's new Post Office at 614 North Clark Street. / G-STORE YOU SAVE BIG DURING THIS 523 N.
