I used to hum 'Tis-the-season-to- be-jolly and await the call of Amahl and the Night Vistors and deck my halls with boughs of holly and when a TV star would twinkle his mascaraed eyes at me and chuckle "Merry Christmas," why, I'd just got all warm inside and chuckle right back. But I tell you, Christmas 1957 and I have had it. Squirrels Infest Set I've been watching Christmas on television for more than ; week TOW and I figure I've, been wished 54 "seasons greetings" and 18 "happy holidays." There have been so many trees on TV this past^week that I had to chase a family of squirrels out of my set. ber, Joan Zook and Florence Frantz. Vesper services were conducted in the school gymnasium Friday morning, for grades seven and eight and the high school. President Darrell Chapman opened the service. Russell Cable introduced, Rev. Dolar R"itchey who brought the Christmas message. Rev. Duncan MacNab closed the service with' a prayer. I know the words of "Winter Wonderland" better than I do the pledge of allegiance. I've .watched Christmas plays and Christmas commercials and Christmas station breaks. And NBC, CBS and ABC, I want you to know I'm beat. There were some TV Christmas moments I enjoyed. I thought last Saturday's Perry Como Show \vas done with taste and imagaination. And there were "Wide Wide World" holiday visits inside the penitentiary a t Leavcnworth, Kans. and a reformatory at Cliil- licothe, Ohio, that struck an offbeat note. But for the most part, the past several days are blurred in my mind. I seem to remember James Stewart on "G. E. Theatre" in a western version of a "Christmas Carol" and I seem to remember, too, Jim Bowie and the Pirate Jean Lafitte seeking refuge at an inn where Christmas was being celebrated. But this must be madness on my part. Let it pass. Boonc Celebrates Two Ways I do recall that Richard Boone celebrated the holiday in two ways. Last Thursday, on ".Cli|max" he was a detective trying I to crack a case so he could get home for Christmas. He finally made it on Saturday, but this (time, strangely, he was "Have Gun, Will Travel" and h« w*« celebrating a crazy yule with some Pawnee Indians. Eddie Fisher sang "Let It Snow" on NBC-TV and over at CBS - TV, Ed Sullivan almost wound up smothered in the stuff —tons of it all over his stage. That's television magic. Lowell Thomas didn't do so bad by snow either—he wound up in the Arctic on "High Adventure." Pat Boone sang Christmas carols. So did Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, Gisele Mackenzie, Tennessee Ernie Ford, Dinah Shore, Dizzy Dean, Esther Williams, Patty MacCormack and all sorts of smiling people on the Lawrence Welk. Show. Ward Bond wished me "happy holiday" while his sidekick on "Wagon Train," Robert Horton, was caught in a windstorm in Sioux country with Dan Duryea. I thought it rather a giddy bit of behavior on the part of Bond at the time. Jack Oakie grinned at me at the end of Wednesday night's "The- end of Wednesday night's "Theatre" and said "Merry Christmas." And then Ralph Edwards came on with a guest who looked like Santa Claus and Edwards wished me "Merry Christmas," too. COME ELEVEN SYRACUSE, N.
