Holiday Deeds Pay Threefold By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Hundreds of people can look forward to better things In 1972 thanks to Americans who used the holiday season to show that Christinas means a lot more than tinsel and trees. Accompanying the news of civil war in Pakistan, bombings in Northern Ireland and the ups and downs of the economy, were reports such as these: — Harry L. Jones, a Birmingham, Ala., policeman used his last $6 to buy groceries for a needy family. His good deed was reported and he got letters from around the world. Jones received more than $3,000 which he turned over to charity, commenting: "You can say what you want about the commercialism of Christmas nowadays, but... there's still a lot of love and good will toward men around." — An 8-year-old Manhattan boy wrote two letters to Santa Claus asking for a wheelchair for his brother, who was stricken at birth with cerebral palsy. The second letter wound up in a Seattle post office and was reprinted in the Seattle Times. Several people offered to buy the wheelchair. — Off-duty police officers in Lynwood, Calif., teamed up to form a Santa Patrol, giving out small, candy-filled socks to children. The socks carried a message: "The policeman is the children's friend. Go to him when you need help. Merry Christmas." — A family in Florence, Mass., skipped the usual exchange of Christmas presents and instead sent gifts and supplies to 240 orphans in South Vietnam. The Lucien Pepins took the action after their son, Spec. 4 Bernard A. Pepin, wrote them of the needs at an orphanage in Vietnam where he is stationed. — Three young parcel post deliverymen in Seattle, Wash., volunteered to pick up packages from area families of POWs and speed them directly to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport for shipment to the departure point. They even offered to pay the postage. — Employes of a city department in Poplar Bluff, Mo., collected $146.51 for a Christmas party. Then they learned of a man who needed kidney transplant and expensive treatment They turned over their party collection to a fund set up by the city newspaper, the Daily American Republic. Good news isn't just for the holidays, of course. It's something that goes on all year long, in big cities and small towns, created by large groups and by individuals. Take the case of Jean Logan. In the course of her job with a Washington State public assistance agency, she discovered that an elderly woman with eight days to wait for her Social Security check had only half a stick of margarine left in the refrigerator. She learned that many of the people she helped just couldn't make ends meet. So she took the family pick-up truck, painted a sign reading, "Help us help your neighbors" and, with the aid of eight youngsters, started collecting. In the first three months, she got enough food to feed more than 3,000 families. Dining Out In Moscow Is Shaking Independent Maryland ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) Stubborn Maryland will once again celebrate Independence Day next month as it has persisted in doing since 1784. July 4th may be all right for most, but Maryland history buffs insist that the end of the Revolutionary War, not the beginning, marked U.S. independence from Britain. The end came on Jan. 14, 1784, in the Maryland State House when the Continental Congress ratified the Treaty of Paris to end the war. Although Cornwallis had surrendered to George Washington in 1781, British troops occupied several U.S. towns until 1784. "It's one thing to want a divorce and quite another to achieve it," Gilbert Crandall of the state tourism division says in his annual argument to support Jan. 14 as the real birthday of the United States. The Treaty of Paris arrived in Annapolis some days prior to Jan. 14, 1784, but Thomas Jefferson, chairman of the ratification committee, could not produce a quorum for a vote. On Jan. 13, two delegates from Connecticut reached Annapolis. The following day, a delegate from South Carolina finally fought through driving snow to take his seat in the old Senate chamber. With a quorum present, the treaty negotiated by John Jay, Benjamin Franklin and John Adams was quickly ratified and the United States became an independent sovereign power. As it has for years, a 13-star flag will fly over the Maryland State House Jan. 14 and the Treaty of Paris will again be on display in the rotunda, a few steps from where it was ratified. And a group dressed in the scarlet and blue regimental uniforms of the "Maryland Line," the state's Revolutionary War unit responsible for Maryland's nickname as the "Old State," will perform close order drill while a fife and v2e /Wtc&\ in/ Your Cfowk MOSCOW (AP) - Dining out in Moscow sometimes requires the patience of Job, the endurance of a long-distance runner and an ironclad digestive tract. But Russians out for a celebration flock to restaurants despite long lines at the door, long waits for the menu, and indifferent waiters. This metropolis of more than seven million has slightly more than 100 full-fledged restaurants— not counting cafeterias and snack bars. Tourist brochures recommend only a dozen or so to foreign visitors. The first impression is that of a fortress under siege. Nearly every evening on the sidewalk a milling, insistent crowd stomps about in the cold demanding to be let inside. Just inside the door a grim old man in a threadbare uniform has two words, delivered in snarl: "Mest nyet, mest nyet," No room, no room. For no apparent reason, a sign saying "Mest Nyet" often goes up in the door minutes after the restaurant opens, despite many vacant tables inside. The skirmish at the door goes on most of the evening, while the doorman periodically opens up to foreign tourists and the Communist party elite. The establishment of good places to eat is just one of many consumer services neglected over the past half-century, by a regime intent on building up its military and industrial power. During the past few years, and especially since the 24th Communist congress last March and April, the leadership has placed emphasis on improving consumer goods and services. What effect the exhortations and promises have had on waiters and waitresses is somewhat questionable. They have heard such rhetoric before, and their pay is still only about 70-80 rubles a month, plus tips. This is a basic salary of less than $100 by the official exchange rate. drum corps plays "Maryland, My Maryland." Then Maryland will host a dinner of authentic Revolutionary War cuisine for delegates from the other 12 original colonies and toast that day 188 years ago when British troops withdrew from American soil.
