We the Women "Do your Christina.-! shopping parly and avoid the rush of last- minute, hurried shopping," the stores are urging. Okay, I'm willing to try It this year. But I Jorsec a few difficulties ahead. 'The wife who buys her husband's Christmas' present early runs the risk of having to return it a day or two before Christmas, when >je proudly conies home with a duplicate. The husband who buys hi* wife something '.hat, In November, It seems she can't live without, Is likely to find that. In December, she not only can live without it. but she doesn't even want it. The parents, who make their selections early, often discover that tiicir carefully hidden purchases are dug out by the inquisitive small fry. FATAL NOTE The woman, who early comes upon the perfect gift for dear old Margie, with whom she has been exchanging gifts for years, is SLS likely as not to get a nice sensible note from Margie saying: "What do you say, lets not send each other gilts this year." Masonic Grand Lodge Of Arkansas Electt LITTLE ROCK, Ark., Nov. 20 (UP) —The Arkansas Masons have Installed a new grand muster, Noah Sloekburger of Wlnslow, He succeeds John W. Hamilton of Hggott.

Kimball of D« Queen, grand senior deacon. As I say, I can forsce certain dif- i °' Education for ficulties in the "do your Christmas ' "'JJ 1 the vocatio. shopping early" plan. And among' them is the thought that, if enough shoppers shop early, wn'ir just exchange a last-minute Christmas r-^-h for an earlier one. Coming Events Social Calendar Friday Chapter N of P. E. O.
