Their train of camels plodded slowly .under the weight of great bags of treasures—gold vessels and bars, jeweled pieces, frankincense, and myrrh. Their names were Balthasar, were wise men. And all along the way, when they stopped to rest the camels, they made answer to side house that same silent night. His cheeks were sunken from hunger, his clothing tattered and filthy. His large eyes were sick with famine, but they stared in wonder over the rooftops down PENNEY'S BARGAINS BETWEEN YEAR CAI* REIMIMEY SAVINGS Savel r POLISHED WOOLS! TWEEDS) WOOL MARTINIQUE!

For he too had seen a star. It shone with right Orient brightness, and soft lights flickered in his eyes when he looked at it. And as he watched, it moved until it was standing over a stable down the street. From afar there was a babble as of many voices, and straightway up the street came shepherds from the fields outside the city. "Boy, where is the stable in this street?" they asked. "We have come away from our flock, Cor the Lord hath made known to us that a saviour is born. The sign we seek is a babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying .in a manger." Points The Way And' then the boy's eyes got wider still, for up the street came a train of camels bearing heavy burden. The great beasts' hooves beat loudly on the old street as their drivers urged them on. The three kingly men at the head of the train wore raiment richer than the boy had ever dreamed of, and he shrank back into the doorway as they glanced at hirri. When' the caravan reached the stable, there were Mary and Joseph and the Babe, and the shepherds stood aside from the man- ger in awe. And Balthasar and Melchior fell down and worshipped the child. And then suddenly they noticed that Gaspar, the youngest, had not entered with them, and they were ashamed for him. Find Other Wise Man They ordered his treasure from the train to be presented along with .theirs.'And when a', length they departed for their own country, down the crooked street, they found the other wise man. He was sitting in the doorway and beside him was the boy, i chewing in hunger on a loaf in his left hand. With his dirty right hand he held on to the king's ! fine robe. And in his lap lay a i gift—not gold, but a toy. The other two rebuked Gaspar. "For sahem," they said, "to have turned away from the wonder of this night at the manger and you, who held steadfast to the star on the long journey." And he answered them: "I will abide here av.'hile. I am content. At the last moment, I followed another star—one that stood up in my heart."

Senate Group Plans New Investigation WASHINGTON (UP) — The Senate Rackets Committee launched today "a brand new investigation" of racket infiltration into an international union. The probe will explore reported links between (he union and gangsters attending last month's gangland convention at Appalachin, N.Y. Chief counsel Robert F. Kennedy announced the start of the new inquiry by the committee staff. He refused to identify the union or the industry involved. Kennedy said the new inquiry involves "an important international union" hitherto untouched by the committee's activities. He said the case involves "racketeers ...gangsters, and collusion with management on the national level and at local levels." Kennedy said investigators have been assigned to follow up leads from "various sections of the country." He mentioned Chicago, Philadelphia, New York and Miami among other "major" cities. New York state police broke up the Apalachin meeting. They picked up hoodlums from all over the country at thee state of Joe Barbara. Kennedy said the committee has discovered that "a number of them (at the Apalachin meeting) are involved in labor." In addition, he said, "a considerable number" are employers—in the garment industry. He stressed, however, that the garment industry is not the focus of the new investigation. WINDOWS BROKEN' Botty Bailey, 20S% East Miami avenue, Monday reported that all of the windows in the building at 428 High street, vacant for the past few months, had been broken including 11 outside and nine inside windows, along with the mirrors in the washroom. A short '.ime later Marty Schreyer reported a window broken in a shed and some coa! stolen from a coal pile at Marty's Sales and Service, 330 Water street. Read the Classified Adj JL here's a star in Above the li the sky tning and thunder At Christmas there is goodwill fn the hearts of men. There is a warm welcome for the neighbor - a fervent hope for friendship between all peoples and nations - a determination to make "peace on earth" a reality. Clouds move over the horizon, sometimes building up to frightening thunderheads. Angry voices thunder unreasonably and threats, like lightning flashes, break and crash over our heads. Yet the Star of Bethlehem still shines — now dimmed or hidden by the clouds - then breaking through with a brilliance and power that will not be denied. May its promise of Hope-Faith-and Love be seen and followed by the wise men of all nations. May "Peace on Earth" be the prayer of all peoples everywhere. MAY ALL THE JOY AND GLADNESS.
