Santa Claus is on the way EDITOR'S NOTE — "Will Santa Clau* really com* t» our house?" That is the most anxious question In America today. It is answered in the following column, written for parents to read aloud to their children. Since its first ap. pearance in 1948, it has become a scrapbook favorite in many homes. By HAL BOYLE NORTH POLE (AP> _ He's off! Santa Claus is on his way at last. The jolly old saint and his famous reindeer are zooming through the arctic skies right now, heading for the American border. He'll reach it Christmas Eve. The Northern Lights ' switched on to a clear, steady green — the "go-ahead" signal.. And the Royal Canadian Mounted Police sent Santa this message: "We are clearing all air lanes in your, path, old boy. There is no speed limit for you tonight. The sky is yours. Go as fast as you like. Good luck!" And Santa needed that wide clear road in the sky, for his big ir. "Oh, dear, oh, dear," worried anta, just before the takeoff. I do hope none of the presents all out and bean some poor in- ocent rabbit down below.-1 believe this must be the heaviest oad I've had in 20 years." "What is he fretting about?" whispered Bonder to Vixen. He's only riding in the sleigh, we have to pull it." Vixen laughed so hard the «lls on her harness tinkled in merry music. And all the other eindeer laughed, too. As Santa Claus climbed up nto the seat of the sleigh, puffing a little because he has ;ained some weight this winter, red sleigh with gifts was piled so high it overflowed. It Carl Knutson pays $500 as drunk driver Carl Arthur Knutson, 38, 1820 S.

Roux Jr. held on 3 charges A Police Court hearing on three charges Wednesday morning was continued to next Tuesday for Alfred Vincent Roux Jr., 20, 2726 19th SW. Bond has been set at $50 each on two misdemeanor charges of striking a fixed object and using profanity. Bond has been set at $400 on the other charge, resisting arrest, which is an indictable misdemeanor and requires a preliminary hearing. None of the bonds had been posted at noon Wednesday. Roux has denied all of the charges, police said. Police received a call about 3:24 a.m. from Mrs. Dean A. Cullen, 1654 N. Carolina. She reported that two men were in „ ,a car in the driveway of her hree black and white peaguinslhome. The men had entered her waddled across the snow injhome in the past, she reported. ront of the reindeer. 'Here; here, get out of the way, please!" said Santa Claus mportantly. Then he asked in urprise: "Why, what are you penguins doing up at the North Pole anyway? You're supposed to be at he South Pole." "We're on a vacation," said jne of the penguins. "We're ooking for Florida. Have you een it anywhere?" "Climb aboard! Climb aboard!" boomed Santa. ,<!I'll drop you off there. But, I must ay, this is the first time Tever >icked up three hitchhikers wearing tuxedos." Just then Mrs. Santa Claus came running out waving a long piece of paper. You almost forgot your list oi good children," she said. "Never mind," replied Santa. 'I don't need it. This year I'm [oing to give a present to every ittle boy and girl, good or bad. Phe bad ones will feel sorry hen, because they know they don't deserve a nice present, t'll make 'em try harder to be ;ood next year." "That isn't according to ioyle," said Mrs. Claus, who ikes to play bridge. "But it does make sense, yotf old sof- ie." Santa stood up to crack his whip in the air.— the signal to )e off. But then he heard a imali voice crying: "Wait! Please wait!" It was Cluny, Santa's favorite ittle elf. The other elves gos- iiped about Cluny and said she was clumsy at making toys. But Santa knew it was only because ;he was so young. He b'ked her aecause she bad a good heart. 'Here," said the .tiny elf, lolding up a small shiny figure. "What's this? What's this?" Crumbled Santa. "You're too ate, my pack is already loaded." It is only my present to the world," said Cluny. "I made it at night in my room— all by myself." Santa took the little figure from her hands. It was a beautiful angel with butterfly wings and a robe of purest white. In her hand the angel held a small magic wand. "It is the angel of peace," explained Cluny. Why Cluny!" said Santa, "this is better than all the other gifts put together. I'll see that your angel waves her wand for The men had left before the officers arrived, police said. A short time later, a car matching the description of the one at the Cullen home was parked at the Clark Service Station, 811 S. Federal. The officers said when they approached Roux in the service station, he started using profanity in the presence of the wife of the station operator. Roux refused to come to the police station and was handcuffed, the officers said. While driving back to the police station from. N. Carolina, one of the officers found a flashing barricade at Pennsylvania and 1st NE had been struck by a hit-and-run vehicle. A headlight rim at the scene matched one missing from Roux's car, police said. Yellow paint matching that on the flashing marker also was found on the left front of the car. Officers also said a connection on a propane cylinder was broken loose at the scene of the accident and the propane leaked out. The service station operators reported that Roux's car struck a flood light as it entered the driveway.

Then he picked up his long whip again and cracked it sharply in the frosty air. 'Ho, ho, ho! Here we go!" he roared. "Ho, ho, ho! Here we go!" The eight-reindeer leaped forward and the big sleigh began sliding through the snow. Faster, faster, faster — and then they were off the ground and into the air. Santa was on his way.

Police find two break-ins in Mason City Break-ins at the Montgomery Ward warehouse, 201 8th SW, and at the One Hour Cleaners, 121 N. Federal, were being investigated by police Wednesday. Both break-ins were discovered by officers making routine building checks between 1:15 and 2:15 a.m. Wednesday. Preliminary investig a t i o n showed the only theft at Wards was about $2 in change from a soft drink machine which had been pried open. A large mattress, the backs of three ranch chairs, seats on two swivel dinette chairs and the seat on one overstuffed rocker were slashed, police said. Police believe entrance was gained by prying out 3 wood panel in an overhead door in the south side of the building.

SPANISH STUDENTS STAGE YULE PARTY TUESDAY John Adams Junior HigH School ninth grade Spanish students have been studying about the Christmas holiday customs of Spain and Mexico. They staged a pinata party Tuesday td celebrate "La Navidad." Working on the construction ' of the pinata were Peggy Be inke and Stephanie Savas Kathy Polansky and Liz Meekei provided typically Mexican re freshments. Other students as sisting in the planning of the "fiesta" were Mike Neu, Bonnie Pattschull, Marc Brown Julie Ellis, and Mike Nadler. The class has been singing our traditional Christmas carols in Spanish as well as those "vil- lancicos" (carols) native to Mexico and Spain. Earlier this month, the class read in Spanish an account of the Spanish influence which is found in our southwestern United States. In addition to the many names and words o Spanish origin that are still be ng -used, the Spaniards left heir architecture, religion, cul- ure and traditions. Harold Hopp's eighth grade American History classes have completed study of the coloniza- ion of America by the English, Some of the classes were divided into joint-stock trading companies with each. company representing one of the major groups of colonies— New Eng- and, Middle, or Southern. Each company elected their president, vice president, and secretary-treasurer. The groups did research in .he school library on the found- ng of their colonies, earliest settlers to their colonies, and ife in their colonies. These research findings were shared with the rest of the class, with ;he class judging their presen- :ation and paying them in "English pounds" for their efforts. In addition to the oral presentation, each group earned additional pounds for written assignments and quizzes. The join t-stock companies which earned the most pounds in their respective classes were as follows: Period one — President Steve Naifeh's, Southerners; Period three — President Ellen Cook's, New Englanders; and Period four — President Jolene Mayo's, New Englanders. Hopp's classes are beginning study of the events' which led to the American Revolution.

IGHTH GRADERS ARE MTRODUCED TO ALGEBRA Gary Faught's eighth grad rithmetic classes have com eted an introductory unit o gebra. The students first ex mined equations containing a nknown, the value of whic ould be found by trial and cr or. This method of solving quations was found to be un- atisfactory for more compli- ated equations. Considerable me was then spent on clevelop- ig a systematic approach to nding the value of the un- nown. The students were then ole to solve equations which ere much more difficult than as possible by using trial and rror. The students also worked with igned numbers. A number line .'as used to demonstrate this dea. The students discovered lat here in Iowa almost cvery- ne has used signed numbers nd the number line. The scale if our thermometers is nothing more than a number line. Since he same numbers appear twice m the scale, a plus or minus ign is used to tell the numbers apart. The plus or minus tcm- lerature readings tell us what ide of zero the number is on. LANGUAGE, LITERATURE CLASSES ARE COMPLETED Charlotte Come r's ninth rade English classes are completing a variety of language and literature activities during his quarter. Three classes have inished a unit on punctuation and have put into practice what hey learned by writing an es- ay based on an actual experience. One class has been study- ng the short story and the techniques used in the writing of a hort story. The film "The Tell- ''ale Heart" was shown and the Indents had the opportunity to ee the tremendous possibilities or dramatic presentation which 'oe's stories afford. Judith Keipp of State College of Iowa has been assisting in he English classes during this quarter. Miss Keipp has been n training for the Peace Corps during the past year and has lad some interesting experiences to share with the students.

This apid turnover is one of the rea- ons the available money supply s still increasing. This is helping make possible he stabilizing of long-term in- erest rates and holding short- erm rates at a level designed to protect the dollar in international dealings. This is the period of the year vhen the most strain is placed on the money supply, when it is most in demand, both as checks and as paper currency and coins. It is the season for high credit demands, too, as business finances its holiday trade. Apparently the money supply is still fairly easy. After Christmas the money will flow back into the banks at a fast rate as business and con- should be a month or more before any further strain could develop. And this is all to the good as far as the monetary authorities are concerned, while they strive to hold long-term rates down and short-term rates fairly high. The Federal Reserve Bank of Vew York reports that in Movember the demand deposit turnover, or checking account usage, in 337 U.S. localities outside the major money centers was 8y& per cent greater than a year ago. The gain is impressive in terms of dollars changing hands. Check transactions in November were $15.4 billion higher in the 337 localities in November than a year ago.

The Federal Reserve itself helps at this season of the year by seeing that the member banks have increased amounts of lendable funds for the financing of the business transactions that precede the holiday spending rush. The Fed can increase these reserves by buying up U.S. government securities. The cash it pays is deposited in the banks and becomes the basis for loans. In January, the Fed normally dries up some of the surplus return flow of money to the banks as loans and bills are paid. It can do this by selling securities, and stashing away the cash it receives. This year the process has extra interest because of the moves the United States has been taking to bolster the British pound and at the same time keep the dollar sound. One move was to raise the short- term interest rates here to keep dollars at home and out of European money centers. At the same time, U.S. monetary authorities have succeeded in holding long-term rates steady, so as not to discourage further economic growth. It's a neat trick, and the increased turnover in checking accounts is helping. Sons plant.
