The Algona Upper Des Moines, Algona, Iowa, Nov. 29,1938 FIRST PERSONAL Appearance SANTA CLAUS Kvery child is entitled to a visit with Santa Claus In person. It is childhood's right, and it is a parental duty to bring tlie child to Algona either on Wednesday, December 7th, or on any Saturday in December to visit with Santa Claus. And your child's eyes will glow with '•wonderment" at the gift of candy from Santa's own hand, made possible by the Chamber of Commerce. Come to Algona first. Not only will your child be pleased, but you too will find a thrill at viewing the thousands of holiday items now on display in Algona stores. Maybe you'll recapture some of that joy of living of childhood as once again the Christmas season comes. Remember, as we do in Algona, that this is the "spiritual" time of the year, when it is more right to give than receive, and we want you to be among those who enjoy your Christmas a little more because you have come to Algona. We believe in the town, and are deeply conscious of a duty to give you and yours the best, at a price you can afford to pay. An Open Letter to All Who Believe in Santa Claus It is good to get away now and then from problems, perplexities, things which have to be taken seriously and to be happy, to be kindly and merry, to rediscover the thrilling pleasure of giving happiness. i That's why the world always needs and welcomes Christmas,the season that brings to life the grand old human decencies which sweeten relationships between people; expressed so heartily in our greetings to each other, in warmer hospitality, in good will not merely spoken but deeply felt.
