THEATRE - - MARYLAND A Merry Christmas To All Saturday, December 24 Business Men's Group Favors Public Square Postoffice Site The Rotary Club of Denton, with thirty-three assenting and but five dissenting votes, approved the site for a Postoffice .'tncl Federal Building selected by the Federal Government, namely, the Courthouse Green site, offered by Temple Lodge and the County Commissioners, at its regular meeting on Tues- claj evening last. Representing as it does the principal business interests of our community and, incidentally, the most interested patrons of the postoffice, it leaves no doubt in the minds of our citizens where the Federal Building should be located. The ultimate result of the injunction proceedings sponsored by Mrs. Mollie Taylor, Misses Miriam and Katherine Taylor, Mrs. Mary Eauman, Mr. and Mrs. E. G. Cooper, Mrs. Edith Sparks and Dr. E. P. Knotts, will likely, therefore, have'no influence upon the Treasury Department in locating this handsome building yvherc it belongs--in the heart of our business district. Dr. E. P. Knotts, president of the Rotary Club of Denton, presided at the meeting at which tha above-mentioned action was tr.ken. The preliminary survey by the Treasury Department was completed this v/eek.

A rev;mij)ed lino up with Fred Norri; in coal, Gniecko and Parker at the full back positions ami Pollard up on the line gave the boys extra pep which and been lacking in the two previous games and every man in the line up put forth all his effort to go on a scoring spree. At the sound of the whistle, Dcnton emerged into the Feds territory ftnd after a couple minutes of play Bennington drove one through for the first tally. The Feil-s also scored in this period but Bennington sent another through, from some fifteen yards out that put the Deiiton team ahead 2 to 1 which the Feds never were able to overtake. Kibler found the range in the second to go ahead 3 to 1 at the half. The Feds strengthened their team at the half by adding a couple of players, one of whom was Sam Johnson, a former Denton lad, who turned in a good performance. However in this period Ho^s Smith got in the lime light by heading the sphere through after Lacy Orme had centered from a corner kick. Kibler also pushed another through from close scrimmage in front of the goal. At the beginning of the fourth quarter the Feds removed Sullivan from goal and put him on the line to add more strength. Kibler once again scored for' Dcnton's sixth goal of the afternoon. But with added punch on the Fedi line they also found an opening and scored for their second time. With half'a minute to go Fred Norris made a most spectacular play, falling on the ball with only inches to spare and getting it out of range. The line-up-Denton F.

The first round will be played in Baltimore on January 15th. Only the postponed games of No- [vcmber 27th remain on the league'; first half schedule. Greensboro will undoubtedly be the winner. Ccntreville scored their initial win over the Vienna CCC team last Sunday. Easton has a much stronger team than a few weeks ago. The second half which begins January 8th will be tougher for all clubs. _ _ · _ Greensboro 3, St. Michaels 0 Greensboro defeated a fast moving soccer club from St. Michaels Sunday by a score of 3 to 0.

DECEMBER IS LAST MONTH TO GET WHEAT LOANS Wheat loans on l'J38 wheat under the Agricultral Adjustment Act arc available only until December 31, C. Z. Keller, Executive Officer of the Maryland AAA Committee, reminds producers of Caroline county. Mr. Keller urges eligible wheat producers to make their application for loans as early as possible before the December 31 dead line, if they plan to apply. The loans arc made by the Commodity Credit Corporation and AAA County Committees certify producers who are eligible for loans. The Committees also are responsible for grading and inspecting farm stored wheat placed under loans. The rate of loans offered farmers at individual points is calculated from basic rates established for the principal terminal points in the western and central part of the United States and fiat rates hy states elsewhere. The rate of loans In Maryland is 70 cents per bushel for number two red winter wheat. Since there are no terminal warehouses approved in Maryland, a freight rate of 12 cents a bushel will be allowed to Richmond or Roanoke, Virginia, the nearest approved terminal points for Maryland wheat, according to Mr. Keller. The wheat loan,? are a part of the integrated ever-normal granary program. They are intended to aid AAA cooperators in withholding temporarily a part of the year's surplus wheat from the market.

Typist ------- Dorothy Howard THE SACRED EVERGREEN Have you ever wondered just why you have a Christmas tree, all decorated with pretty bulbs and electric lights at Christmas time? The use of the evergreen tree in Christmas celebrations began in Germany and Scandinavia. When the pagans of northern Europe became Christians, they made their sacred evergreen tree a part of the Christmas festival and decorated it with gilt, nuts aad apples. One dtory tells how, twelve centuries ago, on a Christmas Eve, the first Christmas tree was miraculously revealed. Winifred, an Englishman who had gone to Germany to spread the teaching of Jesus, found a group of worshippers gathered at the Oak of Gcismer about to sacrifice little prince Asulf to the god Thor. Winifred prevented the death blow and cut down the "blond" oak. As it fell, a young fir tree appeared, which the missionary declared was the tree of life of Christ, of whose birth he then told the people. If we think of this beautiful story as we fix our Christmas trees, they will take on an added beauty and meaning. The Assembly The Fifth Grade, under the direction of Miss Lawless and Mrs. Ramsburg,, presented a play entitled, "Taking Santa's Place." The charactcis were: Santa Claus, Calvert Merriken Bites Dressmaker, Rachel Willis Miss Dressmaker's helper, Bernc- dinc Roe.

Have you seen the Christmas tree in Mrs. Ramsburg's room? If you haven't you've really miised something. At the top of the tree, which is a lovely pine, is a gold star. Paper bells, stockings, stais, chains, and balls all made by the children are used as decorations. Brightly Wrapped packages, containing gifts that the children have made, are fastened on the tree, and are at the foot of it. The only decorations used that weren't made by the children, are the icicles. For little fifth graders, these children have certainly shown their ability at trimming Christmas trees. Special Delivery Dear Santa: As we forgot some of the presents our kiddies of C. H. S. wanted last week, we shall add them now. Hannah Detwiler will be satisfied with Richard Green, the movie actor. Please bring the Senior girls some new Senior boys, preferably, dark and handsome. A bed for Austin and Bryant to catch up on their sleep would be acceptable. It would be convenient to put it in the assembly hall. Bob Moore would appreciate a. bed with an extension for P. 0. D. class.

I would like to have a drum, a little train, some tin soldiers, a tank, a. cap pistol, a water pistol, a doll, some doll furniture, and a cigar. B. H. Christmas Carol Have you read Charles Dickens "Christmas Carol" this year or haven't you been reading it every Christmas? The story of Scrooge and "Marley's Ghost" is one of the best loved of the many hundreds of stories woven around the Christmas spirit. The Christmas Carol was published in 1843 and tbe 15,000 copies that were immediately sold brought Charles Dickens about $3,500. It ia the story of a "clutching, covetous old sinner" named Scrooge, who was completely made over by the Ghosts of Christmas, Past, Present, and Future. The story of the ghosts' visit is told with all the humor, pathos, and realism that is humanly possible. Tiny Tim, the crippled child of Scrooge's hardworking clerk has been the inspiration of many children and grownups, too, at Christmas time ever since he was first portrayed by Dickens. Alumai News Some alumni who arc at home for the Christmas holidays are Billy Merriken, Ernest Downes, Roslyn Orme, Madeline Cooper, Jimmy Chaffinch, Jack Harrington, Clyde Pentz and Catherine Altfather. Dick Strome, a student at Dickinson College, is visiting Jimmy Chaffinch for a few days. Seaior News The Seniors are sitting more at ease since they have finished giving their oral talks. George Clendaniel gave his talk on the article "Twenty Months jjj Alcatraz" which was written by Alexander Conway who spent some time there as a convict. Jen Ann Deen presented a brief synopsis of the life of Jack London who, judg- ng from her report, led a very dramatic, exciting, and unusual life. Donald Kubler gave a very technical talk on "How to Judge Dairy ;ows." We thought Donald chose a subject that he was thoroughly familiar with. "The Cost of War" was he topic chosen by Louise Scott for her talk. She tried to convince us that war is unnecessary and cannot be justified. Richard Gary talked about the various by-products of corn, cotton, and soy beans. We were amazed at the number of by-products. Vernon Porter gave his talk on "The Brown Swiss Cow", touching on what was best for them to eat and where to raise them. Some interesting 1 facts about the castle--Glamis, where Macbeth once lived, were revealed to us by Grace Gellctly. This castle is said Lo be haunted, but the present Queen Elizabeth calls it her home. The "Advantage of tMe Farm Income vs. the City Income" was very well given by Harold Alttfather. Catherine Cahall ;old us many interesting facts about' "The Netherlands." "The Ship Plows a Cable into the Bottom of the Ocean" was the title of Malinda Altfather'a talk. She told us the dangers of the cable and the costs. We arc now rearing further into Shakespeare's story of Macbeth in English class. Junior Spying Last week we left the Juniors at the end of the third period of the morning', so well finish for the sake of our readers. "Ting-a-ling" goes the bell, "puff" go the students, rushing out of classes for their lunch. I never have been able to figure out why the pupils cave their classes at noon in such a mrry. They couldn't be hungry be- ause they don't do any physical (or mental) labor. It couldn't be that the teachers aren't interesting. What could it be? Maybe its an old-faah-' oned custom. Nope, that'a not it ·' Torn to page 8, plotM. ' · - - iNEWSPAFERr - 'if .-·a. NEWSPAPER!
