The table setting does much lo add to lh« Chrlitmoi Uillvity. tlalte sure you, have perfectly set tables lor parties and entertaining, By RAYMOND A. lAJOlE Central Press Association Correspondent E VERY successful hostess is an artist for she blends into colorful harmony — her guests, 'each of whom she makes feel .specially honored—her tastefully •prepared food with correct table (settings — and the eheer/ul, iChrlstmas atmosphere. Following these general common sense rules which prevail 'tor all settings and all meals, the gracious hostess will always toe assured the charm of perfectly set tables whether for the big family dinner, parties during the Yuletide season or gay holiday get-togethers. Flatware should always be laid In. the order of its use, from the outside in, toward the plate. Spoons and knives (cutting edges toward plate) go to the right— forks to the left. Is the oyster or An exception cocktail fork which belongs on .the extreme right, outside the spoons. Pieces called for are butter spreader, fork, knife, cereal spoon (dessert), and, frequently placed on saucer, spoon for coffee (teaspoon). Should your menu Include fruit, cereal and a main course, with coffee, use a serving plate of medium size, placing a fork at the lett.

THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS T'was the night before Christmas and upstairs and down,' Not 'One mouse was stirring, not one tiny sound. The tree was all trimmed, What a wonderful sight, Everything was ready for Santa that night. The children were snuggled down in their beds, While dreams of toyland filled their wee heads. I in deep slumber, Pa .snoring away, All tired out after a long trying day. When from somewhere outside, there came such a roar I sprang from my bed and fell flat on the floor v [ leaped to my feet, "Land Sakes" I cried,Then I ran to the window to see what was outside. Back went the curtains, up went the blinds, • While visions of terror flashed through my mind. The moon .shone down brightly not a cloud in the sky, When I saw a huge space ship go gliding by. ft settled gently to earth like a leaf from a tree. While I stood there poised ready to flee. then out stepped a man, a sight to behold, Dressed in a space suit all green_ red, and gold. \ wierd looking man, a hump on his back, And as he turned round I could see t'was a pack. He came to the door, stepped softly inside, While I looked around for someplace to hide. And the little old parakeet, there in his cage, Started to scold and chatter with rage. The man took off his helmet, ran his hand through his hair, Why it wasn't a space man I saw standing there. Veil, if it wasn't Santa Glaus, without a doubt, But why come in the space ship standing without. Then he started to talk to the chattering bird, And I stood quietly listening to catch every word. By coming this way, little birdie I fear, I've startled a lot of people this year. 3ut my reindeer were tirad after years of hard work, And I didn't want my duty to shirk. \ So rather than see the little children grieve, Thought I'd try a space ship 'this one Christmas Eve. So I must liurry along over dale and hill, , And try, before'morning every stocking to fill, le put on his helmet, turned slowly around, Then went out the door without making a sound. He entered the ship, as he took off I could hear, Merry Christmas to all, And a Happy New Year. PLACE SETTING FORMAL DINNER: FOR IN. A casual, pleasant atmosphere surrounds the informal Christmas dinner- leisure, relaxation, cheer, friendly conversation. A white damask cloth is always correct and con» ventional. Fewer and simpler courses are served than at for* ma! dinner. The bread and fcutter pi a to with butter spreader is at tho left directly above the forks (dinner fork on outside and fork next to plate). At salad right next to dinner plate are the dinner knife, soup spoon (oval bowl or cream soup) and the spoon for fruit or fruit cocktail (orange or teaspoon). An oyster (or cocktail) fork may be substituted when seafood cocktail is served. The dessert fork or spoon iB brought in with dessert. jured. Bulled was homebound for the Christmas holidays.
