HATS CLEANED AND BLOCKED Let us restore the original beauty and shape and increase the life of your hat. Hear Story of Christmas by Van Dyke Henry Van Dyke's story of the Christmas Angel was related in simple, outline form for the Lions club Wednesday noon for its last meeting before that holiday by the Rev. Alvin N. Rogness. In the heavenly conference, the arch-angels, Michael, Uriel and Raphael diagnosed the ills of the world centering about the ascendancy of evil over good, unrighteousness over righteousness. Michael's prescription was more power to the forces of good, Uriel's was for more wisdom, Raphael's for more Godlike compassion AstrAcUig on this last course, there was still the question of how it should be achieved? Urged Sending God's Son At this point in the story, there appeared in the distance the voice of a child angel repeating the prhase, "I know how." Sending the Son of God to live among men was the proposal of the Christmas angel. Yes, He would suffer and be despised by some and ultimately die on the cross. But it was only thus th,at God could reveal Himself fully to man. With this the child angel soared earthward for a presence over Bethlehem on the Holy Night of Christ's birth. A special guest of the club was Dee. 23, 1M* MMM Cltr Oi«b«-G«Mtt*, MM* City Ju. Al DiMarco, who after "an introduction by W. P. Tyler, talked briefly about football prospects at the University of Iowa. With most of the key men on the past year's team returning, and with some rugged, fast freshmen coming into eligibility, the Hawk- eyes next fall should give a good account of themselves in the Big 10 conference, the Mason City star quarterback pointed out. Team Spirit Good Even though the win-lose record of the 1948 Iowa team wasn't outstanding, the season was one of the most satisfactory in recent years at the university, Al declared. "The spirit on the team," he added, "and the support of the team by student body and public have never been better." A collection among members of the club by Tailtwister Merlin McGowan raised the Lions club's contribution to the 1948 Christmas Cheer fund to $75. George Mendon presided over the meeting. Henry Payne introduced the speaker. Ed Payne of Michigan City, Ind., past international Lions president, was a guest.
