Here are ideas on how to wrap j/our Christmas gijts. and how to decorate them. By RAYMOND LAJOIE Central Press Association Correspondent P ACKAGES, gay and varied, colorfully wrapped and decorated with' eye-catching accessories, are for many of us, the visible symbol of the festive spirit in. the air, .everywhere, at Christmastime. To 'make lovely' packages, here's how: WRAP IT, and tie it; clear an adequate working space, an area that is flat, firm and with plenty of elbow room. Assemble all your needs—scissors, seals, glue, ribbons, papers, boxes, greens. Wrap your gift in fresh tissue and place it in a box of proper size. If the paper has a pattern, t>e sure you place the box so that the design will be well-spaced on the top. Fold paper over, pull smooth and taut, fold ends neatly and fasten with scotch tape or decorative seals. If box is large, tape two sheets of paper together and proceed as you would with a single piece. The seams may be concealed with ribbon. Two different colors, or a printed paper combined with n plain one will produce a novelty effect. AND MAKE A BOW: No matter how you choose to tie the ribbon around the box (crossed through the middle for a square box, crossed at cither or .both ends for an oblong one, etc.) the bow is always made separately and attached to the box later. THERE'S A BOW FOR EVERY GIFT:- Make bows that are full, puffy and luxurious. Use different kinds and colors for variety. Combine widths of different colors—narrow silver on wide red, white on blue, gold on moss green, and so on. Make a small bow of one color and place atop a larger bow of a different color. Leave some ends of the bow long to be fringed, or tie a soft knot about two inches from the bottom of each end. Cut several 10-inch lengths of tinsel ribbons and tie at center. Draw each length over blunt edge of knife to form a curled rosette. Match your ribbon to one of the colors in the paper. Choose Mass, came last week and will spend the Christmas holidays in the home of her parents Mr. and Mrs. Albert Powers. Personnel of the Winamac ar.d Medaryville banks gathered at the Eagles club room Wednesday evening for a Christmas party. Guests included directors, officers, members of the law firm and employees. A ham and turkey dinner was enjoyed by the more than thirty guests. Mr. and Mrs. Argel Ash wefe hosts Monday evening, Dec. 16 when the employees of the Ash Oil Co. were entertained at a. Christmas party held in the home] of Mr. and M-rs. Herman Seidel at Star City. Guests included Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Eudy, Mr. and Mrs. Paul Buchanan, Mr. and Mrs. George Shorter, Mr. and Mrs. Don Abbott, Miss Kay Gartner and Michael Garigan. Guests this week in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Burr Beauchamp the lightest color to play up In this way. FOR A TAILORED, TWO- TONED TRIMMING: Use two contrasting ribbons (print and plain or different colors, each about one inch wide). Bring sides of ribbon together and lay flat on table. Make a series' of flat loops working back and forth, keeping each loop 1 directly over the one below, and a little shorter. Keep center fiat. Do not pinch into gathers. Secure through center with sticky tape, ar.d pin flowers, berries or an. ornament over the center. ADDING THE GINGER. BREAD: . Little angels, snow, men, Santas, animals and other ornaments may be placed on the package,-and sprigs of holly or spruce or other greens tucked in with the bow will add a special seasonal note. Try tying a soft knot near the end of four or five extra lengths of ribbon. Attach these to the box under the bow so they wiil fall loosely across package. Give your package a fairy touch by the use of "flitter"—a glittering,. sand-like material. It comes in red or green or in blue, gold or silver and is available at art, gift and department stores. It may be used on the ribbons, or directly on the package. The parts to be decorated are lightly touched with mucilage, the flitter sprinkled on generously and tha excess shaken off. Another way of achieving glitter on your packages is to attach small Christmas balls to the ends of the tying ribbons. Remove the cotter pin front the ball, push one end of pin through the edge of the ribbon, and then replace both ends in the ball. • For packages with sound effects, attach small bells to loops of ribbon and string — clothesline fashion — across the box. If bottles are your pet problem, try wrapping them with aluminum foiJ. The material is very crushable and molds easily to the shape .of the glass. You can tie a big red bow at the neck, or dress it up with a ribbon skirt. TO make this "skirt," glue lengths of half-inch wide ribbon to a matching »band of wider, ribbon. Fasten tho band around the neck of the bottle so that strips hang: to the bottom edge. The more strips, the fuller the skirt. IndianaWarns Illinois of Truck Laws SPRING-FIELD, III. (UP)—Indiana served notice today Illinois' "take it or leave it" attitude may result in cancellation of truck reciprocity agreements between the two neighbors and 12- southern states. Robert L. McMahan, director of the Indiana reciprocity program and chairman of a special com- missi ono nreciprocity for the 13- state southeastern reciprocity compact, served the warning Monday during a two-hour meeting of the Illinois Motor Vehicles Law Commission. The session broke up with little agreement on either side. Asst. Illinois Secretar, of State Sam Young said his state is considering "retaliatory action" against Indiana on the issue, involving truck license fees charged by the two states. Indiana truck license fees are under a maximum of $300 a year. Illinois, with the highest maximum registration fees in the country, has charges running as high as $1,134 for the heaviest vehicles. Illinois has set up a system fco force truck firms to prorate the registration of their trucks used in Illinois but based out of state between Illinois and the other states. McMahan warned that the southern states group, allied with Indiana on the issue, is so incensed that it is ready to take retaliatory action against Illinois cars as well as trucks. Efforts by two Illinois lawmakers to bring representatives of both sides together to work out an agreement brought little response from either Young or McMahan. Young charged that Indiana is permitting many Illinois truck companies to license their trucks in Indiana to avoid the higher Illinois fees, although the trucks are used mostly in Illinois. "Indiana is getting fees to which it is not entitled," said Young. The southeastern compact adopted a resolution at Atlanta, Ga., last week blasting the Illinois stand on truck' licenses and its method of prorating truck registrations. In addition to Indiana, the southeastern compact includes Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia.

Jack Poor Rates High In Television Review the Classified Ads By WILLIAM EWALD Uniled Prcsr Staff Correspondent NEW YORK (UP)— This, is the time of the year when TV reviewers assess the 12 months past. So let's assess. The following list foregoes the usual formal categories. Such categories are absurd. Instead, let's roam. The best regular show of any kindon TV this year, I believe, has been the Jack Paar "Tonight" show on NBC-TV, It is at times pretty plodding, but it has a peculiar fascination — likt watching a cobra emerging from a basket. Good Desi>ite Elsa I enjoy is despite the occasional presence of Elsa Maxwell, a tiresome bore ot a celebrity collector who takes pot shots at obvious targets like Elvis Presley, King Fa- rauk and Jayne Mansfield. She may be the most tedious TV performer of all time. "Tonight" is. live and alive. It has , provided some of the most hilarious moments of the TV year, particularly when it has had guests like Jonathan Winters, Jim Backus and Hans Conreid aboard. And a very low bow to Dody Goodman, an amiable lady who can make "hello" sound funny. The most exciting moments on iTV this year were provided by I Charles Van Doren ami his quest for the big money on NBC-TV's "Twenty One," TV at its sweatiest, tensest and purest. The. best drama was a "Playhouse 90" effort about Helen Keller's childhood, "The Miracle Worker." Teresa Wright and Patty McCormack turned in the best acting jobs of the year on the CBS-TV 90-minuter, "Pastures" Over-rated The most over-rated dramatic year was NBC-TV's "Green Pastures," a spectacular of above av- erage quality boomed out of all proportion, I think, because it was slotted opposite the Mike Todd Madison Square Garden calamity on CBS-TV. The most over-raded dramatic performance was Peler Ustinov's on an "Omnibus" production of; "The Life of Samuel Johnson." A good actor works with his group— he both bounces and furnishes, bounce. Ustinov unpackaged a solo peformance that leaned heavily on mannerisms and gimmicks. The worst performance of (he year was Suzy Parker's in a "Playhouse 90" offering, "The Death of Manolete." She played a small part but was almost classic in her incompetence. The best young comedians on TV this year have been Milt Kamen and Ted Reid. Kamen was seen on the Steve Allen Show and on "Tonight"—given (he right kind of material he should become one of the great ones. Reid's spoofs of the silly cafe society set made sitting through the bumptious enthusiasms of the Dinah Shore Show worthwhile. The funniest single show of the season was a summer re-run—a Phil Silvers half hour about a chimp who is inducted into the army. A dip to Sid Caesar.' too, and Carl Reiner, Howe Morris and Pat Carroll. And another to Ernie Kovacs for his NBC-TV pantomime show last January. Wisconsin is an Indian name meaning "the meeting of the I waters." PUBLIC AUCTION Will sell the following articles at public auction at the north edge of. Royal Center, Ind., on Road 29.
