My Christmas Day column is, as it has been for, lo, these 12-1/2 years, a celebration of people who make me glad Pm alive: Dear Helen: We are members of a high school marching band and participate in many parades away from home. We're writing to thank all the good people who have been so kind to us. Here are three . examples of their friendliness: Our bus broke down, after a long ride. Uncomfortable and miserably hot, we knocked on a stranger's door and asked for the use of their bathroom. This lovely woman not only let all 60 of us use both upstairs and downstairs facilities, but she actually seemed HAPPY to help! Another example of kindness: A youngboy supplied us with ice cold water, after we had marched in a two-hour parade (Oh the blisters!). This fellow was a stranger too, and nobody had told him to help. Once on a very brisk day we marched three miles. Local firemen, seeing that we majorettes and flag bearers were very cold, offered us the use of their blankets in the firetrucks, at the end of the parade. This is our THANKS, FRIENDS from ~ G. H. S. BAND, OHIO Dear Helen: Love is not worrying about catching his cold when you kiss him — ME Dear Helen: "Concerned Teen" who cries over the state of the world, will learn through experience that we can solve some of our problems by taking them apart and looking at them one at a time. Then, as an idea comes, DO something about that ONE I It may be very little, but as you wash dishes or mow the lawn, you can study about what to do next. The key? THINK POSITIVELY. As sure as there is a God, I know that an idea will come to me — and to. C. T„ because are "concerned." I have written to North Vietnam about the Prisoners of War. I have given time to tutoring Negro children whose grades are failing. I have offered my services to the Community Action Program. When each of us has started acting positively on our chosen "concern", we'll learn how much that one lighted candle can do! — LILLIAN Dear Helen: In spite of what some of you disillusioned writers say, the faithful marriage is still alive and weU and going strong in our home.' We've been married 12 years and my husband and I have grown closer each year.We go on the theory, 'If you have steak at home,' why go out looking for hamburger?" We make sure the steak is prime and tender. This mostly by thinking of our mates first — and including the children as part of the team. •. .' * My husband is a very handsome man and he has had opportunities, I'm sure,~but he likes home cookin*. So do II — HAPPY Dear Helen: Thought you'd like to know: The article you wrote about "Youth Life Line" In Sacramento, resulted in a teen telephone help center in our town. I called one night when I figured there was no hope left, and the counselor at the other end let me know that a lot of adults really care. ? ., H there was a place in every city where troubled people could,, "just talk" there would be a lot less troubled people around. Pm working on a college "Crisis Line" now. — so I know from my' own experience and that of others, how much they are needed! ~ STRAIGHT NOW Dear Helen: \ I clipped this description^of "CHRISTMAS TO A CHILD" and would like to share it with you: Christmas is having $1.07 to buy presents for your father, your mother, two grandparents, a sister, a brother and your dog. Christmas is trying to wrap a package all by yourself so the paper doesn't tear and covers both ends at the same time. Christmas is getting a new sled and having it rain all day. Christmas is having to wear a white robe in the Christmas pageant that makes you look just like a girl. Christmas is getting a neat new auto racing set from your parents, who forgot to buy the batteries that make it run. Christmas is being sick over vacation and not getting to miss any school. Christmas is having it suddenly occur to you that all things considered, your luck in drawing parents was actually pretty good. Sorry, I don't know the name of the author. MERRY CHRISTMAS!! ~ MRS. D. E. M. HAPPY HOLIDAYS!! -- Helen. * This column is dedicated to family living, so if you're having kid trouble or just plain trouble, let Helen help YOU. She will also welcome your own amusing experiences. Address Helen Bottel in care of THE TIPTON DAILY TRIBUNE. ">>~ Life is Worth Living God's Christmas Tree "Fear not for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. When you pass through the waters I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned and the flame shall not consume you. (Isaiah 43: 1-2) One can imagine that as God looked down from the heavens upon a cold and impersonal earth His heart must have ached for His children. He longed so much to draw the people near, to share His love and power with them. But there was only one way to accomplish this task. God had to sacrifice. He sent His only Son, Christ, to reconcile the people with their Creator. AChristmas tree laden with gifts was planned for the people and all generations to come. The tree was the Cross of Calvary; its only color was the trickling blood of Christ and the only sounds breaking the stillness of the hour was the cries of pain from His lips. Atthefoot of the Cross were gifts from God. These gifts, more precious than money can buy, were peace, joy, courage, eternal life....waitingto be claimed by those who would approach the Cross, accept Christ as their redeemer and become reconciled with their Creator. God's Christmas tree is not a seasonal ornament. It exists each day of the year for all eternity. The gifts are there waiting, the salvation ready to be claimed. All one need do is step to the foot of the tree, willing to accept the free grace of God. God is a loving God who wants each person reconciled with Him.

" 'Tis merry when gentle folkes meete." Anthony Brewer, 1647. E—is for the Eve of Christmas, the eagerness of tiny folks searching around the' tree at all strange hours to see what was in Santa's pack, for the time as St. Luke tells it when the angels brought "good tidings of great joy ... for unto you is born this day in the city of David, a Saviour, which is Christ-The Lord ..." R— is for Rudolph the Red- Nosed Reindeer, who now is as much of a classic of Christmas as Jingle Bells and "tidings of comfort and joy," for the rosy red cheeks of the little children, for reverence of the child born in a manger nearly 2000 years ago. "Reverence, that angel of the world." Shakespeare, 1599. R— is for the rewards of each day fulfilled, for the richness of a nation that shares its largesse with the world, for the personal riches of health, hearth and family. "Riches are not from an abundance of worldy goods, but from a contented mind." Mohammed, circa 630 A.D. Y— is for the young in heart who look on each Christmas with renewed spirit, forthe yearnings still for the peace on earth spoken of by the heavenly hosts' joyful singing, for the He has opened the door by way of the Cross and offers eternal riches to those who would come. Life is truly worth living when Christ becomes the center of our lives7 He becomes our constant companion seeing us through all the difficult times and Instilling a calm serenity within our hearts. att Yule log, even if it no longer burns but is only a symbol in today's home. "Yule is come, and yule is gone, and we have feasted well ..." Michael Denhara's Proverbs. C—is for the carolers, the special caring for others, the day itself called Christmas. "I heard the bells on Christmas day, their old familiar carols play, and wild and sweet the words repeat of peace on earth, goodwill to men." Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, 1864. H— is for the happy hearts of many, the heavy hearts of others with members of the family gone, and unfortunately too, for the highway toll, but for a holiday celebrated in Christendom and throughout the world by other faiths. "How many observe Christ's birthday! How few his precepts! Ot 'Tis easier to keep holidays than Commandments." Benjamin Franklin, 1751. K—is for the relatives remembered with gifts and cards, for reunions, for the Christmas rose that flowers during this season, for the reason and sanity that must be victorious if the world is to be saved from extinction. "Reason is a light that God has kindled in the soul." Aristotle, 300 B.C. I—is for the new ice skates, for the imagination of those whose skills turn our store windows and streets into incredible fantasies, for the inn in Bethlehem. She wrapped him in "swaddling clothesn and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in I»e inn." S— is for the shepherds who watched their clocks that night, for the sights and sounds of the holiday rush, and for Santa Claus of course. "Not believe in Santa Claus! You might as well not believe in fairies... Thank God! He lives and he " lives forever." Frank Church, editor- Twas the night before Christmas, and all thru the land. Sounds of a holiday were close at hand. Father was frowning; this, was his song, How could a blueprint be so wrong? Junior must have his little red cart, But the stores were closed and it was missing a part. Mother was busy cooking and baking. Her feet were tired and her head was aching. But she'd reached a point of no return, She must carry on or the food would burn. T.V. was showing an old Christmas movie. The paper had said it would be real groovy. An old time performer began to croon An old familiar 'White Christmas' tune. The crowds uptown were starting to thin, 'Department store Santas, full of chagrin- Were wending home, they were thru for the year. Is this all there is to Christmas time cheer? Bored young teens could be heard afar. Blasting off in their souped up car. A modern young man and his real cool chick, No longer believing in Old St. Nick. But the sounds of Christmas became a sigh, Over all was heard a hew baby's cry. Peace and tranquility reigned again, In the hearts and minds of all good men. Soft falling snow and a star shining bright, There was Joy to the World and a Silent Night. Yes, the sounds of Christmas are merry and gay, But, it's the 'Silence of Christmas' that shows us the way.

"A tree is a nobler object than a prince in his coronation robes." Alexander Pope, 1727. M— is for moderation . at Yuletide celebrations, for the special joy of the midnight services. " 'Tis the watching hour of night." John Keats, 1818. A—is for old acquaintances ne'er forgot, for the agelessness of the New Testament story, for the angels rejoicing at the birth of a lowly babe whose spirit forever would influence the world. "By every man at birth a Spirit stands, a guide of virtue for life's mysteries." Menander wrote the words 300 years before Christ S—is for the carol now known and sung around the world, one which had its beginnings in 1818 in the tiny village of Oberndorf, Austria. Joseph. Mohr, a parish priest, and Franz Gruber, a teacher, wrote the simple hymn, for a midnight mass... "Silent night, holy night, all is dark, save the light ..."

St Tipton, Indiana Christmas comes but once a year. Many people say once is enough. But is it? Really? What's wrong with accepting the spiritof Christmas as a state of mind; an every day way of life? What's wrong with having that spirit in our hearts every day? Whafs wrong with appreciating love of family, warmth of friendships, God's blessings everyday? What's wrong with an every day gift giving of SELF- and ejecting selfishness and greed? Whafs wrong in allowing the true significance of Christmas to dominate our hearts and minds every day? What's wrong in avoiding drabness and living in an atmosphere of Christian conviviality every day? Whafs wrong with a softening of attitude toward others every day? Whafs wrong in relying on - "Yet in the dark street shineth the everlasting light; the hopes and fears of all the years are met in Thee tonight?" Whafs wrong in accepting that glorious gift, that eternal truth and joy every day? . We hope all of you who read these thoughts have a Very Merry Christmas;"that you enjoy the meaning and spirit of Christmas every day - from this Christmas to the next PHIL NICHOLS, Young-Nichols Horn.
