CHRIS REESE A Lilile of This, a Little ' •;- 6t ;Thkt! Not' Much '<.'. [ iot , Atty thing ' Yep, Christmas ; Was •'•, a 'most pleasant' time but there came with itYa big envelope mailed by the Income-Tax Division of;the State -Tax 'Commission that surely didn't add to the Christmas spirit joys one bit because on account of now we're to figure pur taxes and dig up that annual payment to the state.and it's not one bit of fun. And your state taxes are going to amount to more than just a couple of bucks. And along with that you will find that there has been added more points which will raise your taxes a bit over the past year.. This income taxing gets more disgusting, tiresome and expensive it seems, year after year. Christmas 'I)ay this year set as on Monday because! it fell on a Sunday was sure a peach from a weather standpoint, so to speak. There were no snow flurries and, the .temperature was of the sort which thawed out what bit of snow we did have. In fact it was more of- an April sort of day in place- of the snow and wintry sort of a day it-usually is and should be. If it wasn't for the f Christmas trees and decorations-you would never fe^l that it was really Christmas day, the weather was more of the April Fool's Day sort, so to speak. However, the Christmas presents spirit never. wavered in the least and Christmas Day should be more of a wintry nature, colder and a bit of snow to seem like Christmas Day. —o—• And, by Ihe way, winter arrived on Dec. 21, but it was a nice day, sort of spring-like, and that was perhaps because on account of we have had winter with us for quite some time already, with the thermometer lowering to 20 below and -snow flurries and we sure got used to winter aplenty, so to speak. And it surely made a big difference- to the holiday traffic becuusu on account of roads were in fine shape and holiday visitors found driving conditions pleasant. And I took time out on Saturday afternoon from 5:00 to (>:()() o'clock and parked near the intersection of State and Phillips and counted the traffic cars for one hour. And there were 211 cars came north on Phillips and drove on North to the Diagonal in that hour and there were 30!) cars came north on Phillips and turned west on Stale, a total ot 580 cars crossing that intersection in the one hour. If the traffic was continually that heavy through the clay from U:00 in the morning until 8:00 in the evening, 12 hours, that would mean that a total of li,9GO cars crossed the intersection during that part of a day. Naturally the traffic- through that intersection would be heavy because- on account of it is a part of highway l(ji). And then, too, probably most uf that traffic meant folks were on thi-ir way to homes of relatives and friends for the Christmas holiday visit, so to speak. Just two more days and then is here beginning of another year When habits we would cast away Which over better sense hold away. The custom is that we swear off, The brimming cup we cease to quaff, And cards and checkers we would ban And for good habits take a stand. Each year there comes within our heart This urging that we do our part To purge the- world of use-less crave And better daily U> behave. We .swear there'll be no poker chips, That never alcy pats our lips, We swear an stacks of bibles high To cease our gorging pumpkin pie. We shout that all the world may hear, There'll be no brewing malty beer, Nor will we spend e^en ary dime To sip or make of cherry wine. With hand on heart and eyes to heav'n We banish shooting bones "Cunu seven," And bridge and poker, pool or bowl We bury deep, we'd our soul. We stagger through a day sans-smoke, Nor see y resolution broke, Though wild for puff of pipe, or pill, We- bravely bid the urge be still. A dyy arid night we worry through. Sometimes we a week or two, From ail old habits we ru- fraih Though pain and urges fill our frame. And ; so we careless get betimes, Again we "spend of sundry dimes For pipe and mug and cigaret And gaily sing "I'll raise your bet." ' Deserting power of mind and will, '^e hunt again oiu' >bqptleg still. -And, irresponsible, we laugh, As deeply alcohol we i'xjuaff;' May be a joke this "sweating off" Like giving u'p of bafcnyard golf—Cai^ it be done by -you and I? If not, no need to live a lie.. , - • ••.. . and Mrs -Louis "fifrftfett and M^and.Mrs Art Bai-flett went 16 Masort" City/ tb; speh^Ghristmas Dfe? f ith Mf and Mrs" R<5ger Page and Barbai'Bi » ' Mrs HaM Carroll entertained her mother, Mrs Fahriie Al* bright, her brother Chester and Sister Wilma at her hoffie, Christmas Day.
