Rev. Hale tells club gathering The Kiwanis Club's annual Christmas Indies Night was held at the Sheraton Inn on Tuesday night. After the mea! and as Christmas carols were being sung Old Santa appeared, stopped the singing, and distributed fun gifts to selected Kiwanians, after which the caroling continued. The Rev. Ralph Hale, pastor cf the First United Methodist Church in Hope, was the featured speaker of the evening. He began his talk by stating that Christmas time for some is a time of frustration, when one worries about the children being away from home; about all the cooking and cleaning that must be done; about the presents that must be bought; about the lack of funds; about the shortness of time for getting ready; about the securing of a tree and decorations; or about a thousand other things of little real consequence. "We miss the joy of Christmas," said Rev. Hale. He then asked, "What will Christmas be for you?" Have you thought about someone other than your family or ckse friends'' .Are you concerned about that one one who will spend Christmas done? What about that one with no children: that one in the hospital at Christmas; that one with an incurable disease; the ones recently widowed who will spend their first Christmas without then- mate; that one recently divorced; or that one overly addicted to alcohol? Christmas is a time of giving as well as receiving, a time to forget self and think of others. Rev. Hale challenged those present to seek out someone, preferably someone unknown or little known to them, during the days immediately before Christmas, someone with a special need or with a problem and to try to help them to meet their need or solve their problem. "Will Christmas be one of frustration for you; one in which you are up tight and filled with anxiety, or will it be one of open concern for the needs of others even as Jesus was concerned for others:" said Rev. Hale.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. 1 AP) — Striking Missouri farmers remained active Wednesday in the nationwide protest of farm economy problems.

Carter (Continued from Front Page) full day of Christmas vacation at dawn today with a 10-minute walk from his rambling brick house on Woodland Drive to his old peanut warehouse and processing plant. Dressed in blue jeans, a red flannel shirt and work shoes, he donned a tan overcoat against temperatures in the 20s. With his son, Chip, he inspected the warehouse, currently leased by the famfly trust to a farm coop- erative, then set out on a stroll down Main Street. Stopping now and then to greet the few tourists who were out at that hour, he dropped in at each of the small country stores along the street and had a long chat with his cousin, Hugh Carter, a state senator who owns an antique shop at the end of the block. At the Plains Pharmacy, Carter bought a hunting license. He used his driver's license for identification and his Plains address — not the White House. 91818 E. Third Hope, Ark.
