As the bridal party enters the It hardly seems possible that the Christmas rush is over, and we are now more or less settling down to normal living. This may seem true for some, but to others the social whirl of the winter season still goes on. For instance, the Kiwanis Inaugural Ball takes place this coming Wednesday evening, and then, of course, the wedding of Jane Bazley aad Clyde Gordon takes place a week from tonight, and there will be a number of re-wedding parties for the bridal party. In the rush of activities during the past week or so, we neglected to tell you of outstanding decorations and cards, in which we feel you will be interested.

The Christmas decorations this year were prettier than ever. Persons also went to a great deal of trouble in decorating the interior of their homes. One house that looked particularly lovely was the Ro-ert Gable home. Upon entering, one was greeted by a large spray of silver leaves and red bells, gayly lighted, and they had an ever so attractive manner of displaying their Christmas cards, for over the bookcase, with a silver standard, reading "Merry was a large spray of silver leaves, and about this were arranged their many cards. Speaking of cards, werent they attractive this year? One of the cunningest ones we received was from the Dick Macks.

They chose a colored picture of their small daughter, Shirley, asleep and leaning against her collie. Painted on the card was a chimney and Santa arriving with his- reindeer. The inscription was A Merry Christmas from Florence, Dick and Shirley Mack. The George R. Brights also sent an unusual one.

The inscription read, George, Loretto and Lorette wish you a Merry Christmas. Here on the front flap was an etching of a man and a woman, both looking at a baby who was celebrating her first Christmas, looking at a tree with one lighted candle on it. On the inside page was a fireplace, on which hung three stockings, of various sizes, with a note in it saying, A Happy New Year. Mollie Cullum, of Greenfields, near Reading, sent a photograph of Riveredge Farms, her home, and a gay Santa CI a us dressed in red felt and with a Installed OJficers Of Veterans Auxiliary Sons of Union Veterans Auxiliary No. 223, held installation of officers after which a covered dish supper was served and enjoyed.

Ted Luther, whose pet hobby is hunting dogs, sent an etching of a hunt and the Robert Gables sent cards from themselves and their sons, William and Job, Jr. These cards were designed, drawn and colored by Bob, and were very lovely and Christmassy with three lighted candles. Very Frenchy cards came from the Frederick Krolls from Port-au-Prince, Haiti, wishing one a Joyous Noel. Cunning greetings came from Arline Boone, who each year has her brother Ransloe, who is ever so adept in that sort of thing, design them. A green0 card with a red stocking etched on it holding a rag doll and all sorts of interesting presents, brought greetings from Arline.

Her brother, Ransloe and his wife, Ruth, of Camden, also sent attractive cards with a man and a girl standing outside their home, wishing all a Merry Christmas. These were also drawn by Ransloe. Did you -happen to see the cunning house, used for a table decoration over the holiday season in the William Wells home on Mahantongo Well, it was too adorable for words, and even though Mrs. Wells, who is so clever in making, and arrangiag things, helped her, a great deal of it was made by her daughter, Peggy. The house was made from lump sugar and entirely covered with icing.

Almonds, making a walk, lead to the house, and cunning green mints in the shape of trees, decorated the garden. A gum drop was used as the front gate, and a striped candy cane as the chimney. Gumdrops also formed the doorways. It was so cleverly done that one would have thought a confectioner, who had been at the job for years, had fashioned it We understand another lovely inside Christmas decoration was the one in the Clye Wit-man home on Fleet St Several undred lights were used on the tree, and the yard was one to be long remembered. There was a wonderful waterfall, too, soldiers marched in parade.

One saw the stable at Bethlehem, with the animals and three Wise Men. and the star aver the stable. The tree yard took up most of the room, and took many hours of preparation.
