Call it a place free from danger. It maintains the assurance of food in the kitchen, comfortable beds to sleep in, clothing in the wardrobes, and warmth against cold. The family resides here, sharing commons and tragedies, fighting the storms, and yielding to joys—together. There is regularity and respect here by reason it is the nucleus of the all, a place to leave from, a shelter that always welcomes you back. Now at Christmas, home is at its best, when all thoughts are the same—remembering the old—planning ways to enrich the memories your children will have of the home they share with you. As you light your Christmas candles take a moment to think of others—maybe not so well cared for. Remember—Christmas is not all gifts, toys and joys. SEITZ 216 Fifth St. S. W. interior Mason City,
