Shift in Yule is Noted for Netherlands AMSTERDAM (AP) — The growing number of successful Dutch emigrants who return here to spend the year-end with family will be struck by the trfnd to break with traditional Clk'istmas celebrations. 'Christmas in Holland used to be a snug family affair revolving around church celebrations. But this is not true anymore, at least not entirely. The old way of acknowledging the birth of Christ has come in for attacks from the young and progressive forces who want to live up to the Christmas challenge of "peace for all men of good will." The new force stages Christmas fasts in public squares, accosts church goers to confront them with the plight of the hungry in underdeveloped countries, and organizes meals and happenings for persons without homes. There is a growing awareness to justify and purify the Christmas celebration, to free it of its smug self-indulgences of eating, drinking and having a good time. The shift has the active cooperation of many young artists. Louis van Dijk, a favorite jazz pianist of the Dutch youth, is a regular performer with his trio at modern Christmas celebrations in churches. A Dutch pastor said he had a lot of cooperation from young artists when he installed an anti- Christmas chapel in Amsterdam two years ago. It was a meeting place for those who felt displaced with their own family. Discussions were stimulated to discover the real meaning of Christmas as it relates to problems facing mankind now. Last year a "kerst-in" was held in Amsterdam's Mozes and Aaron Church. It was characterized as a happening featuring the reading of the Christmas gospel accompanied by music and dance. A poet, stage and circus artists and musicians participated in the Christmas celebration which had as its central theme the need for love in the present loneliness. It was followed by an ecumenical meal which was over at midnight when the church was returned to the traditionalists to celebrate their Christmas mass in Latin. FIGHT EMPHYSEMA \ USE CHRISTMAS SEALS '70 Yule Seal Called a Real Collector Item The modern holiday tradition of placing Christmas Seals on cards and packages is continuing in 1970, with proceeds from the sale of seals going toward the fight against emphysema, tuberculosis and air pollution Mrs. Leo Bruck of Manning, president of the Carroll County Tuberculosis and Respiratory Disease Association, has described the 1970 seal as "a real collector's item." The seal is actually 'a sheet of 100 different seals, the complete set making an old-fashioned Christmas town. Every imaginable holiday activity is depicted on the seals — Santa, reindeer, a parade, carolers, trees and gaily decorated houses, buildings and towers. The colors are red, green, blue and yellow, with the TB-RD double-barred cross as an integral part of each de sign. Designer is Jerry Snyder of California, who did the 1967 ten-unit Christmas train. Mrs. Bruck said that along with donations to help fight emphysema, air pollution and tuberculosis, larger contributions are needed for nursing and medical education for respiratory disease research. The 65th annual Christmas Seal campaign has been under way in Carroll County since Oct. 26, when the seals were mailed to county residents from the Iowa Tuberculosis and Respiratory Disease Association in Des Moines.

They take special delight in the tinsel and trimmings, the wreaths and fragrant evergreen trees, jolly Santas listening to secrets in toy departments and the rewards of tasting the delicious goodies coming out of the oven for the holiday festivities. Days seem to creep by as they anxiously inquire, "How many more days until Christmas?" But for adults, the season often ends up very hectic. If you're about to plunge into holiday preparations, shopping and entertaining, here are some suggestions from the child-care experts to help make the coming days more enjoyable for both you and the children. Shopping will be quicker, easier and more pleasurable if you don't have a toddler in tow, so do yourself a favor and help a babysitter earn some Christmas money. You can leave her in charge with confidence when you plan ahead. Feeding schedules need not change, but make it easy for her. Leave Modilac Ready-to-Feed formula for baby, for instance. Since it's stored at room temperature, it doesn't even require heating and the sitter need only twist off the cap and screw on a standard nipple unit for instant feeding. There'll be no fuss and a well balanced meal for toddlers if you leave their favorite varieties of Toddler Meals, the "grown-up" casseroles-in-a-jar that have the extra measure of protein that bustling 2, 3 and 4 year olds need to see them through the day. While your shopping list is sure to include some of those longed-for toys, remember that there are other gifts that appeal to the young set. They love showing off in new clothes, for instance, and the easy care Ba- bygro stretch knits by Kapart are as popular with mothers as with tykes. There's a wide se- Times Herald, Carroll, la. Wednesday, Nov. 18, J 970 lection for boys or girls from "football" or "floral" jumpsuits for daytime rough-housing to bright red coverall and stocking hat sets for bedtime. These stur> dy fashions with ample "give" are ideal for growing, active youngsters. Holiday baking, like shopping will be more fun if you start early. Fruitcakes and plum puddings are best if aged, and the freezer is a boon to many a busy mother who plans her baking in easy stages. Youngsters will be happy and will keep out of trouble if you I e t them "help." They can keep an eye on the corn being popped for popcorn balls or for Christmas tree trimming. Stirring fudge and trimming cookies are delightful tasks and all children, regardless of age, excel at ."-cleaning" the icing bowl. An afternoon of such hard work calls for some quick energy, so plan time out for refreshments. Edna Mae Mcintosh, a nutritionist, points out that too many sweets for youngsters during the holidays often result in spoiled appetites and poor nourishment. It's important that snacks provide good nutrition, as well as satisfying hunger. Why not get in the holiday spirit with a fruit cake for mother's helpers? For 2 servings, mix 1 cup cold whole milk and 1 container of any strained fruit and note the enthusiasm with which glasses are drained. CAMERA DAYS Holidays are camera days: According to an Argus study, thirty per cent of family cameras are used "any time, all the time" ... ten per cent are used "now and then" . . . five per cent "when there's film" . . . and fifty-five per cent "on holidays, vacations, special occasions." Cameras rate high on the wanted-gift list for Christmas. And don't forget the film!- WINTER TREADS AMMMS ON SOUND TIRE BODIES OR ON YOUR OWN TIRES Plus 35e fo 65c per tire Fed.
