West Berlin Candles Lit By JOSEPH B.

The citys U.S., British and French commandants issued Christmas messages expressing the wish that the approximately 800,000 West Berliner with close relatives in East Berlin might he able to see them next year.

West Berliners, as In past years, placed lighted candlei in their windows to demonstrate their ties to their parents, sisters, brothers and other relatives in East Berlin. Berlins American commandant, MaJ. Gen. Robert G Ferguson, in a boliday mes sage, expressed the hope that next Christmas would see Berliners united in fact as well as in their thoughts and prayers.

(UPI) Each year at Crhistmaa time, the simple yet poignant phrase 'Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Oaus. . . is told and read by millions as the reassuring reply to a little girl with skeptical friends. But what about the author? Francis Pharcellus Church. Little more than his nama is known and a record of hia life as obscure as his editorial reply to Virginia is famous. It has been 72 Christmases sine the 416-word reply was first printed in the New York Sun in 1897. Virginia, now Virginia OHanlon Douglas, still lives, and at the age of 80, still carries the personal message of Santas existence described by Church as love, generosity and devotion. Virginia was only 17, a future school teacher, when Church died on April 11, 1906, in his New-York City after an illness of six weeks He was married to Elizabeth Wickham of Philadelphia. They had no children. A Glebe Churcha reply was written a short, time after Virginia sent the letter to the Sun. Some critics call it a seasonal message of good cheer and "charming, but forgotten ths rest of the year. The famoua Yes, Virginia. . . hai become a cliche, one of the highest forma of unintended flattery, like laughter, from criticis. Church was born Feb. 22, 1839 In Rochester, N.Y., one of three sons of Rev. Pharcellus Church and Chara Emily. He studied divinity and law but turned to Journalism, gradu- Navy Pilots Distinction-. POW Longest In Captivity By CLIFFORD P. CHENEY LAFAYETTE, Calif. (UPI)-Tangee Alvarez is a beautiful young woman whose husband, Navy Lt. Everett Alvare Jr., holds a bitter distinction He has been a prisoner of war longer than any other American in any war the United States has fought. Alvarez, a Navy pilot, was shot down Aug. 5, 1964, during one of the first air strikes ordered by President Johnson in retaliation against alleged North Vietnamese attacks on U.S. warshipa In the Gulf of Tonkin. First Pilot Captured He was the first American pilot captured by North Vietnam, and ha spent his sixth Christmas in captivity this year. Mrs. Alvarez, 29, sent him the usual Christmai package a small 6-pound parcel which is all his captors will allow. She has become accustomed to waiting for the infrequent letteri her 31-year-old husband captors permit. The last, only six lines long, was delivered in July. You have to adjust yourself to the reality, said Mrs Alvarez, who saw her husband U.S. Cites Secret Foreign Accounts In Spying Cases WASHINGTON (UPI)-The I located in Switzerland, the Defense Department laid in Bahamas and in other countries prepared, but undelivered, testi- where laws prevent disclosure. mony that persons spying against the United States have been paid through secret foreign bank accounts, It was learned Wednesday., Foreign numbered accounts pose a security threat to the Department of Defense In that they may be used to support foreign agents targeted against the military establishment, the prepared testimony read. The Defense Department was ready to deliver the testimony before a House Bahking Committee Investigation of foreign bank accounts earlier this month, but the session was canceled. Supporting its contention that foreign banks already had been used in spy cases, the department said, A case in point is a U.S. Army sergeant convicted of espionage to 1967 and the use he made of . a numbered aecocnt in q foreign bank to deposit in excess of 325.000 he received from Soviet intelligence information received from him The statement said the unidentified soldier later transferred the money to a U.S. hank and bought a house with the funds. The sergeant presently la serving an eight-year sentence at the Leavenworth, Kan., federal prison. The Pentagon was set to support legislstion designed to prevent illegal use of the banks Power Restored To 10,000 In Boston Area BOSTON (AP) Boston Edi son Co. said electricity was restored Wednesday night to some 10,000 customers who lost power earlier in the day because of ca ble failures. The power loss affected customers to the Carlisle, Bedford, Lexington and Burlington area. Edison said service was restored by switching, and added that ; crews would continue at work through Christmas eve until repair had been completed. Jb743pe Dee. 24 a ting from Columbia University in 1859 Church wrote on many topics, his specialty being religious controversy. Ha bated politics. Energetic and Brilliant He found his way to the New York Sun where his brother. Col. William Conant Church, served briefly as publisher. One of the great editors of the Sun, Edward Page Mitchell, in a book on the history of the newspaper, recalls Church as energetic and a brilliant conversationalist. The reply to Virginia was published Sept. 21, 1897, more than three months before Christmas. Mitchell described in his book how he opened the letter from the upstate New York girl and called over Church. He poo-phooed the reason why for such a reply and turned with Indignation to write the editorial which he completed a short time later. Gassie Expression The editorial was only one of two in the history of the prestigious Sun that the author was identified. Mitchell said of the1 editorial it has been reprinted as a classic expression of Christmas sentiment more millions of times than any other newspaper article ever written by any newspaper writer in any language. Church died nine years afetr the editorial was first published and long before Its fame caught up with the authors identity. His classic refutation of those in 1897 whof ail to believa what they cannot see would seem to apply more so to young and old alike In todays troubled world, and perhaps kindle the spirit that still lives in Virginia OHanlon Douglas. only two months between their marriage and his deployment to the Far East. At least I know he Is alive, and where theres life theres hope. She wonders why the North Vietnamese, who have released several U. S. prisoners In recent months, do not release her husband. Hat Received 30 Letter Five years, she said, looking toward a photograph of a young naval officer receiving his wing. Five years how much can a man take? Mrs. Alvarez said she bis received 30 letteri from her husband, but in the last three years each of these has been only six lines, apparently the maximum allowed. The family, in turn, writes Lt. Alvarez a two-page letter once a month, a practice based on their understanding that this is all he will be allowed to receive. From time to time they have been able to see bits of North Vietnamese propaganda films on television, showing Alvarez and other American prisoners. He is much thinner now, Mrs. Alvarez said, but his letters all contain assurances he la in good health. But the hearing was called off during the rush to adjournment. sconsm Rules For Santa Claus MADISON, Wis. (UPI)-Santa Claus Christmas eve visits are legal in Wisconsin, Attorney General Robert W-Warren ruled Wednesday. Warren, to an opinion addressed to E. Scrooge, Flint-ville, Wis.," said he could find no statutes pertaining to the conduct of Santa Claus. But he cited the court case of Claus V. Grinch, in which Gaus won a permanent injunction against Grinch in the night of Dec. 24 so that Claus could do his thing. . Scrooge complained about a character in a red suit and driving a sleigh, pulled by nine of the skinniest horses I ever saw. He said the man creates a nuisence on my land and questioned the legality of the bright red light on the front horse. Dont red lights have to be on the rear of a vehicle? Scrooge asked. While a vehicle used on the highways in Wisconsin must have a red tail light, there is no provision that a vehicle pulled by reindeer may not. increasd, have a red nose light, Warren ruled. Thus I must eonclede that the lead Reindeer's red nose Is not to violation Wisconsin law. Warren ,also said that, while state law prohibits sleighs or other aircraft from landing on a persons land or wi without permission, there is no such prohibition ag landing on housetops, unless he damages your house" Thus, I must further con elude that there Is no legal basis for preventing Santa Gaus from using his sleigh In Wisconsin, Warren ruled. Nixon Advisers Comments t Pump New Life Into Market NEW YORK (UPI)-A comment from President Nixons chief economic adviser, Paul W. McCracken, that time may be. approaching for the Federal Reserve Board to loosen its credit restrictions pumped new spirit into ths stock market Wednesday. After several mild setbacks early in the week, a sharp rally in the blue chips lifted gainers to be a better than 3-to-l margin over declines in brisk turnover. Pointrsized 'gains were sprinkled through the list, although special situations such as McDonnell-Douglas and Atlantic Richfield attracted major support. Electronics, among the hardest hit stocks in the recent decline, also turned in some impressive advances, as did a number of rails, chemicals and conglomerates. McDonnell-Douglas, the days most activy issue, climbed 2 to 29V on 183,300 shares after an influx of orders delayed its opening. The aerospace concern was awarded a lucrative Air Force contract to build an F15 jet fighter.
