/ . ThU U ChtUtmai Monday, It's kind of a peculiar day, half holiday and .half Workday. The first excitement and glamour of the holiday has partially worn off and yet it is still Christmas for We have one family party with gifts and celebrating left to go. Several layers of litter have been removed ">- nut shells, tissue paper, evergreen and tinsel but our house still looks far from neat and there are still unopened presents' undef 6ur' h-ee, The 1 gifts lhat'Sahta brought ar$ being put to good use and, wonder of won- ctcrs, the kids have had them for over 24 ho.urs and not a single toy is broken! 4 Santa affriti at our house early Christmas morning. Last year the children asked how long they would have to stay in bed. I told them 7;30 but I-didn't really think they'd hold .but that long. The next morning, all three of them sat, quiet as three little mice, in the stairway with the door closed. Bill had his flashlight beamed 10% OFF on all awning and door hoods in stock. VISIT OUR DISPLAY AT 116 So. Dodge St. or phone 741-W after 6 O'clock for Sunday or evening appointment. •^ on his Wrist Watch and they wait* ed until exactly 7:30 before burst' ing into the living room. This year we set the time forward a bit because of the Christmas morning church program. Guess %vho was the first one up. Not the kids who were bursting with anxiety about the loot but Mama! 1 had the coffee pdt on and the tree lights blazing before our little ones so much as sneaked a peak at their stockings. * * * I'm beginning to think I'm not so hot at playing Mrs Santa Claus. In spite of all the careful hiding of packages our nosey little darlings knew exactly what they were receiving for Christmas. In one instance they knew more about it than I did. I took one of the dolls out of the box in which it came so that I could fit additional clothing to it. I put the clothes the doll came in back in the box and hid it carefully. Christmas Eve and time for Santa's display came and no box — just the naked little doll. I searched high and low and finally went upstairs to sde if Bill could help me find ths box. The girls apparently were sleeping with the traditional sugar-plums dancing in their head?. Jeanic reared up and said, "If you arc looking for that doll box, its in the suitcase in your closet. Do you need any help finding the doll?" Nothing to change The beautiful, sturdy RUSCO All-Steel, Self-Storing COMBINATION SCMIN AND STORM DOOR FREE DEMONSTRATION Chas. R. Miller RUSCO SALES > * * » ! Dick Strayer had a little trouble in his Santa Claus role also. He was drafted by a woman's club to dress up as the jolly old gent for a visit to the local rest home. Dick thought the disguise was pretty good and he decided to test it by stopping off at his own home. His four year old daughter met him at the door and before Santa could get out so much as a, "Ho, Ho. Ho!", the little girl casually remarked, "Oh, hello. Daddy." • » » Dick had some trouble at the rest home. too. One of the patients, a little old lady was ap- partntlv going along with the Santa Clous gag just fine. She asked about the North Pole and where was his .reindeer,. Dick told her they,: werV iparked a. half- block ddwn the'street., "If you are really Santa- plaits' you tell me the names of< your reindeer , them now _ Idts of calls to ^ If you are a very good girl. 111 come beckon Christmas Eve and tell you an about it" * •' *. Santa Claus came to the home of my little nephew, Jackie Waller right on schedule in spite of the fact that his mother had the misfortune to be hospitalized at Christmas. Christmas morning the children had a telephone conversation with their mother and Jack, who is 3. reported. ">ou can come home from the hospital now, Mom. Santa Claus brought me a doctor set and I can take care of you." CnftttmM it Out hOuM Wit merry this yeaf 'but there Were undertones -'of Seriousness. Never tesfdwe have w* knowft s« much illness and IrUffedy at Chfigtfflas- IjffMs, not In the five who live Kfctas but %lthin ouf family and among our friends and acquaintances. Parting with loved oftes is sad at any time but it is especially tragic at Christmas when family ties are closest and the season calls for gaiety. And yet if it weren't for the hope that came «vith the One who was born that first Christmas none of us could look forward to anything but despair. While we can't understand why so much heart ache must come to Some we are reminded that life oft earth is extremely temporary. It's* far too short to fill with hate and pettiness and barely long enough for the kindness and love that doesn't pass away when we do. Yout fretting* have added much to the joy of the season at our house. As usual, 1 have the cards taped around the frame and upon the xvirtdoWs of the living room trench doors. They serve fi double purpose that way — they bring us your greetings and help decorate the house. Then 'too, it gives me the perfect excuse for not washing the glass on tliO doors for the two weeks the cards are up. I can't mention them all now while the cards are still up but we.will read them over again when we take them down. * * » There are several cards with family pictures on them and we especially enjoy these. Floyd and Bca Holt are pictured with their three in their home and Isabel and Don Alt of West DCS Moines have a cute photo of Marilyn. Sally and Jimmy. Around :i Christmas tree are the Rev', and Mrs Brower and their 2 girls and a boy. I got such a kick out of their tiny son yesterday. He sal with the Champ Martins at church and when someone remarked that the Martins must have a new liny, Stevie pined up, "Oh. no. I belong to the Brower family." Students, Teachersflome For Holidays At LuVerne Mr and Mrs Fred Baumgartner visited his sister, Mrs Mliinic Dickie in MaSoh City Thursday Fran O'Brien sent a fine picture of their family—Mama, Dad and four little ones and I enjoyed the picture of my adopted Aunt Hattie of LuVerne with her husband, sons and daughters taken at their Golden Wedding.

It's one particular pig that bothers Mary Ann — a pig shaped, cookie jar and the drop came when it slipped out of her fingers while the little girl was snitching a cookie. The jar had been cherished for nine years by Lovstad and that's a long life foil- sych equipment in a family wjth several-young children. Mary Ann didn't quite know what to do when she saw all the broken pieces, so she just stood there, a cookie in each hand and said, mournfully, "Goodbye, Pig. Happy New Year!" And that's exactly what I'm wishing for all of you and yours' — a Very Happy 1956! Grace. Mr and Mrs Gottlieb Hansrf- man had their children for Christmas dinner.
