Runnymede, to us the broa grassy meadow where tho barons o England forced King John to sign the Magna Charta, often called th cornerstone of English liberty, wa just a pleasant place for Fred Tima engineer of the local school system and his chums to play about afte they had swum the Thames river o a hot afternoon forty-odd years age. As ever, familiarity with object or situations serves to strip them of their glamorous and awe-inspir ing qualities and reduce them t realities. Most of us, on gazing across Run nymede's green floor, would b whisked back through more thai seven centuries to a bright day 1: early summer. "Knights of old would be gathering on the green sward. Their attitudes would seem *to indicate that a crisis had bean reached in some all-important mat ter. Barons Were roused. Then all eyes would be turned t the southwest, watching an ap proachlng party of pompous horse men. King John, whose cruel tyraa ny had roused England's barons t action, would soon be within a few paces of the group of knights, on of whom, apparently their spokes man, dismounted and went forwari to meet him. The cortege would then halt whll the knight's spokesman read in clear tones a long list of 63 griev ances against the king's despoti rule. Stripped of his arrogance, the sullen monarch would then begrudg ingly affix the royal seal to th parchment and turn his back on thi knights who were already plan ning ways and means of enforcing the articles set down in the docu ment. 'About that time we would stub our toe or it would start to rain, or something-, and we would come hurtling back to 1933 to be struck with the realization that Runny mede was just what Fred Tims had told us it was--a wide meadow on the Middlesex side of the Thames river which made a nice place fo boys to romp after they had swurr across the-river from the Tims home on the Surrey side. And then we will probably have the proui thought that the ninth fairway on the So-and-So golf course would be a much more attractive place from a physical standpoint to have som, historic event occur. Act Was Significant. Tumbling on the heals of tha thought comes the realization tha the actual signing of the parcn ment called the Magna Charta and the particular meadow wnere i was siened are of but little more importance than that beautifu mashie shot which cinched the ninth hole for you at the So-and- So golf course last summer. The significant fact is that con stitutional liberty aa an inheritance for English-speaking people through out the world was wrung from a tyrannical ruler. Mmur details as to exactly when, where and how til- deed was done are thrust into the background when we realize the far-reaching consequences that resulted from the granting of the Magna Charta. So, Mr. Tims' statement that Runnymede is just a wide meadow s really quite justifiable, depending, of course, upon the viewpoint Custody of Minor Asked in Petition M. Harriet Robinson filed a divorce action Thursday in district court against Edward J. Robinson illeging desertion and cruel and in- luman treatment.

Phone 563 ADVICE GIVEN ON HOW TO PREVENT CHRISTMAS FIRES Extreme Care in Preparing for Holiday Festival Urged by Committee. Directing: attention to the fact that too often the Christmas season, which should be an occasion of unalloyed happiness, becomes n time of sadness in many households because of the death or serious injury of a loved one by firo, the fire prevention committee of the Chamber of Commerce urged extreme care in preparing for and carrying out the holiday festivities. The fire prevent! on ists point out that when setting up the Christmas tree, it should be placed at a safe distance from any stove, fireplace or other heating device. The tree should be securely mounted on a suitable support, so that it will not topple over, even if gmall children pull on the boughs, or a dog or a cat rub against it. If apecial electric wiring is needed for I illuminating the Christmas tree, or for any other purpose, the Installation work should be done with safety the first consideration. Must Be Non-Inflanuimhle. It is further pointed out that the artificial decorations used on the tree should be of non-inflammable material. Such decorations can be obtained about as readily as can those of paper, cotton, celluloid or other highly combustible substances, and the difference in price is tnfhng-. Wrapping of colored paper about electric light bulbs is very dangerous, hecause the paper may be ignited by the heat given off by the lamp, and the burning fragments may drop on other combustible material and start a ser- 'ous fire. Burning in the stove or fireplace of the paper or other material in which toys and gifts are wrapped has been responsible for many fires. Sparks and burning embers emitted from the chimney may fall on a wooden shingle roof and set fire to the house. This danger can be averted by gathering up waste paper and other combustible refuse, and storing- them in covered metal containers until the garbage collector calls and removes them, or they are otherwise safely disposed of. Should Roll on Hug. If the clothing of Santa Claus, or any of those in attendance at the Blind Reader to Give The Fool" at Trinity Piay Involves Problems of WALTER C. GBAN festivitics should become ignited, tho victim should be rolled in a rug or other heavy woolen material, and the flames smothered as promptly as possible. Especial care should be taken to keep the flames away from the face. Summing up, the fire prevention- ists assert that all possible precautions should be taken to prevent fires from starting. In addition, it is important, they point out, to have near at hand a couple of -buskets filled with water, a pail of sand and small shovel, or a hand fire-extinguisher or two for immediate use, in case a fire breaks- out. Capital and Labor. Walter C. Gran, blind reader will appear at the Trinity Lutheran church Friday evening at 8 o'clock to present "The Fool" by ChanninR Pollock. fa No admission will be charged but a silver offering will be given the speaker.
