Only the northern reaches of the Midwest and the western mountain regions were expected to enjoy a white_ Christmas, but there was no lack'of other .traditional aspects of the season. Merchants around the country reported a huge business volume, in some cases record sales, indicating gifts will be piled high around the Christmas tree. Christmas Starts with Church For millions of devout Americans, Christmas will start tonight with midnight church services. Family get-togethers will feature the day's activities, topped off with a sumptutlus Christmas dinner. , But, inevitably, tragedy in the form of traffic deaths will cast a somber cloak over the holiday celebration, but since Christmas falls in mid-week the highway slaughter is not expected to be as great as on holiday weekends. The National Safety Council estimates as many as 180 persons will be killed during the 30-hour holiday period, from 6 p.m. on Christmas Eve until midnight Christmas Day. This compares with the "normal" traffic toll of 80 deaths for a non-holiday period at this time of year. Stay Sober, Obey Laws The_ council pleaded with motor-,., j'sts to stay sober and obey tqaf- fic laws, pointing out that most traffic fatalities are caused by drinking drivers and road hogs. The council's plea will be backed up by all-out crackdown on violators in most states by state and local authorities who will give up the day with their families so that others may live to enjoy the holiday with their loved ones. President Eisenhower, like most Americans, will spend today at work, and tentative plans call for the President and Mrs. Eisenhower to spend Christmas Day at the White House and then leave for a long weekend at their farm home in Gettysburg, Pa. Hand-In-Hand Class Celebrates Yuletide The Har,d-in-Hand class of the Ninth street Christian church met Sunday evening at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Gillum for the Christmas party with Mr. and Mrs. Dave Schneider assisting.

A gift exchange vvas enjoyed after which refreshments were served. > Mr. and Mrs. Marvin Lambert will have the next party. Nickname of North Dakota is "Flickertail State," after the many flickertail, or 13-stripe ground squirrels found there.
