Chile Speeds Up Polar Project To Nail Down Antarctic Claims Keeping CHRIST IN CHRISTMAS How are yon planning to spend this Christinas? I! ever there w;is a season when people are tempted lo put first things last and last things, it, is the season of CtirUunus. Unless we determine light now that for us this is going to be a Christian Christmas, we shall tie unable to withstand Ihe '.ja'ian- izing pressure of the world ubrwt, us. We shall succumb to tlio triple X o: a pagan X-mas—-ho modem excesses of excitement, extravagance, and exhaustion! But how can we keep Christmas Chri.i- tian? First of all, by acknowledging the Christ of Christinas as the eternal Son of God and the Savior of the world. Our highest joy during tht present day.} must find its roots in the conviction of the Prophet: "Unto us a Child is born; unto us a Son is given . . . and His name shall be called *.'c . . . Ihe MIGHTY GOD, the Prince of *N Peace." Isaiah 9:G. - ' "$ No gift, be it ever so great or ever *o gvnml. dare overshadow the Gift of God in IJeAhlehem's manger. No gladness, be it ever so high or ever so deep, dare niatcn the gladness of our heart over the thrilling angel message: "Unto you is bom this ctay in the ':ity of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord." Lnkc 2:11. Christmas is the birthday of our Kin^. Let us keep it thai. Let us bring our Rifts of sacrifice, of worship, and of praise. Let us crowd our Christian churches with throngs. Let us make the welkin ring with the jubilant strains of "Joy to the world, the Lord is come! Let earth receive her King!" In that way, and in no other, will ;vc be able to rescue Christmas from the influences which would make it a pagan holiday. In that way, and in no otlicr, will we lie able. to keep CHRIST in our Christmas! "The Church of the Lutheran Hour" PILGRIM LUTHERAN CHURCH Christmas Service 11:00 a.m. Rev.

Chile (UP)—Wilh >ii\p.-ualive secrecy, the ministry of defense is working on plans or the forthcoming Chilean ex- i Kditlon lo Ihe Antarctic. Few de- .alls have been made public but ; t would appear that Rear Admi•al Immamicl Ilulgei will organize ind possibly lead the squadron. Already plans have been changed from sending one ship lo equipping two vessels. These probably will be the larger typo ol frigate just purchased in Canada. The Iqulquc has been mentioned. She is a IG-knot ship of 1.600 tons. The ships are fitted with radar and every modern navigation appliance. February had been set lor the date of departure from Valparaiso but this was set forward to January, Just as the Byrd expedition was leaving Norfolk, Va. Tlie Chilean expedition's purpose i.s mainly to exercise an act of sovereignty over the sector claimed between longitudes 53 and 90 West of Greenwich. Secondary objects will be hydrographic ami meteorological surveys, examination of Chilean Antarctica with a view I to possible permanent settlement and also to determine more about [ its economic possibilities. Nalurally, it is not Intended lo start a colony there. However, a meteorological station would be of Deception and other islands for half a century and Chile is one of the 13 .sleiiiuoiles to the whillnf convention just signed lit Washington.
