Jones was the door prize winner. The party closed with a Christmas message by Doctor Lloyd A Gustafson who spoke on the theme, "Meaning of Christmas." "The very fact that Rotary club puts service above self with the 4th lane, the international lane seeking to do good will for others everywhere, is evidence of the true meaning of Christmas," he said. President L. A. Day made a few remarks commenting on this year's Christmas party curtailed for the purpose of using the surplus for overseas donations. Music played throughout the evening was provided by a record machine. J. B. Youngblood, Jr was general chairman in charge of arrangements.

Iowa License Plates Being Taken Fast Des IWoines, (/P)—Iowa motor vehicle license plates fox- 1949 are going out quite a lot faster than usual, and there's a reason, the state safety department said Tuesday. "Motorists want to get the new plates because they haven't had new ones for 2 years," Leslie Chase, director of the department's motor vehicle registration division, explained. "That's got a lot to do with the new plates going out pretty fast." For the 1948 license year, motorists were issu>d validation tags for their 1947 plates. The 1949 plates are made of aluminum instead of the usual steel. The change was made because of the scarcity of steel. Motorists must have their new plates by Feb. 1 or pay a penalty. Employment, Business at Record Level Chicago, <U.R>—.The federal reserve bank of Chicago said Tuesday that business and employment in the midwest are at or near record levels, and that there is no need to fear a "badly depressed era." However, the bank reported some "soft spots" in midwestern business. It said there were greater declining sales, scattered layoffs and losses, and increasing business failures. The bank said the decline was caused by consumer resistance, Dec. 21, 1948 Citr Ol«k«-G»*«»U, and that production has started to exceed demand, But it said that the soft spots are "a return to more normal sales condition." Consumer resistance started ; 2 years ago in reduced night club attendance and sales of jewels and furs, the report said. Restaurants and delicatessens now are being hit. Pennies Come Horn* Newton, Mass., (U,R>—Patrolman Miles A. MacNeil, who had never been repaid for the many times he dug down to help folks who didn't have carfare home, got a flicker of hope in the' mail.
