This does not call for large individual expenditures. It does, however, stress the need for comprebensiv* buying of the seals. The more money raised in this way, the more «Hectiv« will be the result. Christmas Seals have * distinctive place in community life. Their use adds to the significance of letters and parcels transmitted through the mail and otherwise during the pre-Christmas season. Why not make extensive use of them on messages of good will and holiday cheer? When Is Christmas? (Contributed). What has happened to Christmas" This most important holiday in the Christmas calendar once was a solemn occasion of tremendous religious significance. Within the memory of most adults it was primarily a holy season, a time of reckoning the bounty of Christmas faith. Secondarily it was a brief time of secular pleasure, of Santa Claus's gift giving for children, and of family reunion around the traditional tree. In recent years the materialism of an age of commercialism has taken over this sacred season, obscured its true meaning, and stretched it to a special selling season that begins before Hal- lowe'en and continues after December 25. Throughout the country, cities decorate their streets with colored ropes of evergreen and gaily bedecked trees for the Christmas season -- and unveil the whole spectacle a good two months prior to the holiday. Apparently the moving spirits in such premature goings-on have forgotten the tangy flavor of American life in a slower, easier era. before "tension" became a symptom of national jitters. Then people were content to take the seasons as they came on the calendar and found time for Thanksgiving Iay as a fine, inspiring holiday in its own right, not as a minor day-away-from-work buried in the flurry of early Christmas sales and shopping, and decorations. Will the public become sated wiih a 60-day or longer Yule season and through indifference force Christmas observance back to its earlier limits 7 When will people get ,«o tiret' of thK whipped v:p Christmas spirit symbolized by the dollar si en that they'll repudiate the tinsel and restore to the holiday its appropriate observance?

As human beings, we can't deny our Korean wounded the chance of leading normal lives --of coming home, of living. As Americans, we should be ashamed of ourselves. Think of the thousands of boy* who may never come home because wt, the people they are fighting for, won't "bother" to donate some blood to the Red Cross. Do you know why those men are flighting in Korea? So you can go out on Saturday nights, so your children can go to any school they please; so your husbands and wives can do pretty much as they please, work where they please, talk to whom they please, wnen and where they please. Won't you please give these fighting men at least a fighting chance of coming home again? On behalf of all the men who He in Flanders Field all over the world, on behalf of the men in Korea, on behalf of the men who will soon enter service--perhaps among them your cons, your husbands, your sweethearts--won't you call the Red Cross today and make an appointment to save a life?

Boyle Column By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK, Nov. 24 iff)-- Small business is crying "help" again. The plight of the small businessman has aroused much sympathy. But the small businessmen themselves would like less sympathy-and more orders. One of their spokesmen is Herbert Barchoff, 36-year-old vice president of the Eastern Brass and Copper Co , a metals warehouse and professing firm. "The small businessman today is bewildered by restrictions on the use of basic metals--brass, copper, aluminum and steel," he said. "He can't get enough material to continue full manufacture of consumer goods. He can get material to work on defense contracts--but he isn't getting these defense contracts fast enough to stay in business." Barchoff said there are "thousands and thousands" of small firms laced with suspension of operations. "It is an odd thing to say," he remarked, "but they are being hurt more by a percentage war than in an all-out war. In an all-out war the government needs^ things hi a hurry, and the contracts filter down quickly to their level. "There were a lot of casualties in the last war. Some of those who survived them, «ay they are having even tougher going now. "They're drowning. Any number won't be able to survive until the third quarter of 1952, when the government hope* to release additional quantities of aluminum and steel for civilian use." Barchoff held a pioneering "shirtsleeve conference" at his own plant last summer to attack the problem. He brought together government officials, representatives of big business, and hundreds of small ausinessmen. Similar r e g i o n a l shirtsleeve conferences ar« planned throughout the country. "But we need to get together 8 basic organization to Tiller down contracts to small business firms faster," he said. "That will still salvage some." Major government agencies dispensing contracts now hove units to deal with small business. But Barchoff feels they should be consolidated into one outfit. "Then the small businessman could go to a single place instead of being pushed from pillar to post," he said. "The average small businessman if discouraged by red tape. He gives it up as hopeless. He can't afford to go to Washington and fight for a contract ha simply goes out of business." Another possible solution, Barchoff feels, is legional pools of small businessmen organized to handle major contracts. "But the main trouble up until now is there simply hasn't been enough government ordering. Pointing out that n great percentage of contiacts had been conceiir (rated in a relatively few big firms, he added: "There is no real chish between big business nnd small business. They need each other.' "But many big concerns today-in order to take up the slack re- .suiting from cuts in their own c i v i l i a n p i n d u c t i o n -- a r e doing themselves the work they used to send out to small subcontractors. Government officials also have been .slow to allocate contracts, hoping to get later technological benefits. "But the result is the same--the small businessman is going under. And our whole economy can be upset if we lo*;e small business." Today In Washington Who Pays The Transportation Bill When Truman Take* Trip To Make Political Speech? By DAVID LAWRENCE WASHINGTON, Nov. 24 -- An aide to General MncArthur has made a very interesting answer to questions raised concerning the propriety or impropriety of an officer In uniform making public speeches which could have a political meaning. The episode arose through the criticism leveled by Representative John W. McCormack of Massachusetts, Democratic leader in the House of Representatives, who declared that General MacArthur should remove his Army uniform when "making Republican p o l i t i c a l speeches." General Courtney Whitney, aide to General MacArthur, answers this way: "When certain senior officers of th« Army have spoken in uniform in support of the Administration policy, no such criticism has been voiced. This seems to boil down to the strange concept that it is nonpartisan to defend policy but highly partisan to criticize it. It a,dds emphasis to the warning General MacArthur has so often voiced of the effoits being made to control and even suppress free speech in this country." What General Whitney undoubtedly was referring to was a speech made by the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Bradley, in Chicago just prior to the appearance of General MacArthur last summer before the joint session of Congress. General Bradley, appearing in uniform, made what is called an "anticipatory rebuttal," before General MacArthur uttered a single word of testimony in his own defense. The Bradley speech wag generally regarded as the expression of the Administration. When criticism of General Bradley's speech was voiced, it was immediately counted that the speech had been scheduled for some time. Nothing was said about the fact that public speakers, especially igovernment officials, have often cancelled speeches under the pressure of public business and that at times they have even changed the nature of their speeches at the last moment in order rot to embarrass the Administration. Goneral MacArthur has never made an explicitly political speech but has made what are called Implicit speeches. This is the scrt of utterance in which President Truman also has Indulged from time to time. Not long ago the President went to the west coast for a very honorable and important errand--namely, to participate in the ceremonies in connection with the signing of the Japanese peace treaty. But the same day, during the afternoon, instead of meeting with the American delegation, he used the time at his disposal to attend a Democrat! party rally on th« Pacific coast No Democratic party spokesman criticized that action, which wa a misuse of the Presidential office on an important internationl oc casion. Was any part of that trip paid for by the Democratic Nationa committee? The other day when the Presiden flew ui from Key West to Washing ton, Representative Busbey of 111! nois,. Republican, declared that this was obviously a political trip anc should be paid for by the 'Democratic National committee. The President was in town just long enough to make a political speech and then went back to his vacation at Key West. Will the cost of that trip be borne by the White House--that is, by the government --or will it be borne by the Democratic National committee? Whether General -MacArthur wears a uniform when making p o l i t i c a l speeches doesn't matter as much as whether the taxpayers are paying for political trips of the President of ths United States. General MacArthur is 5n the peculiar position of having been fired by the President for -what many people regard as political reasons. Notwithstanding all the excuses and afterthoughts recorded in the testimony in Congress, it is plain that Mr. Truman dismissed the general because he wrote a letter to Republican leader Joseph W. Martin in answer to an inquiry from him concerning American policy in the Far East. Mr. Truman didn't even give the general a chance to come home and talk it over. Nor did he qualify his order of dismissal but covered removal also of General MacArthur as allied commander in Japan, where everybody admitted that the general had done an outstanding job. To say that General MacArthur cannot rightly wear his uniform to speak in rebuttal against the arbitrary act of the President who fired him is really to encroach upon the rights of a citizen in the community, it certainly is an invasion of personal liberty to tell an individual what he may or may not wear while makinig a public speech. This correspondent happens to believe that General MacArthur would be well advised not to wear his uniform while making any public speeches of a controversial nature, just because it arouses unnecessary debate, but would defend to the utmost. On the other liana", the right of General MacArthur to wear that uniform if that's the way he wants to make his public appearances. There certainly is no law or rule against any general or any retired officer wearing his uniform whenever and wherever he pleases. It's all a matter of individual preference.

In Ponca City, Oklahoma, is symbolized the figure of "The Pioneer Woman," a possession any city could prize. The statue represents a woman, her face up, her eyes glowing with adventure, with a Bible under her right arm, her left hand holding the hand 6f a young boy with whom she is stepping briskly forward. This statue reminds us how the pioneer^women of our land took the Bible as the book of life, absorbed its truth into their minds, and then passed its principles on to their children, with whom they kept in step, walking courageously and hopefully toward a better day. Our nation stands in need of such women today as much as it does its armed forces. O send out thy light and thy Fiffy Years Ago Ilt-ms From The Columns Of The News, Nov. Z4, 1901.

At least 18 firemen and navy enlisted men were killed. Others possibly were blown into the harbor or still may be lying under the tangle of concrete and metal debris. Seventy-nine others were injured. Unofficial estimates put the damage somewhere between 75.000.000 and 100.000.000 kroner (about ?!,100.000 to $1,400,000). The violent chain reaction of fire and explosion, which destroyed five buildings and heavily damaged other navy installations, shattered windows throughout Copenhagen, set off hundreds of burglar alarms and knocked people out of their beds as far away as Sweden, 30 miles across the straits Fire in a gasoline tank behind the heavy concrete mine arsenal touched off seven of 10 mines which an authoritative naval source said had just arrived from the United States. The blast made a crater about 10 yards deep and 30 yards wide and completely ·disinteerated the workshop where the mines had been taken for inspection. Speculation on the possibility of sabotage was aroused when Police Commissioner J. Odmar imposed a complete blackout of information on investigation of the disaster. Military court investigations also opened this morning in secrecy after Defense Minister Harald Petersen had completed a tour of the roped-off yard. It was the country's worst peacetime disaster. But it brought to mind a similar disaster in 1944. when scores of Danes and Germans were killed in the explosion of. a German munitions ship at Aarhus, Denmark's second biggest city. Graduates from the nation's engineering schools are expected to drop to a low of 17,000 in 1954. This will be more than 65 per cent below the present annual average of 50,000.

Bell--Guariglia The Methodist parsonage at New Market was the scene of a very attractive wedding ceremony Wednesday evening at 7 o'clock, when Miss Rosa Mae Guariglia, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Mitchell L.

Thomas Morgan officiated, using the double ring ceremony. The bride was given in marriage by her father. Mrs. Bell v,as attired in a aqua street length dress with black accessories, and had as her matron of honor her mother, Mrs. Dorothy Guariglia. who was attired in a green satin street length dress with black accessories. The bride's father served as best man for the groom. Mr. Bell who is in the Army has served fourteen months in Korea, and now is home on a furlough. After "If you want a thing done, do it ourself" is good advice--especially vhen you follow it--a Hood Col- ege teacher has learned with sat- sfying results. The current issue of The French Review carries a thoroughly com- limentary appraisal of Miss E. Louise Leonard's edition of a French ovel for classroom use. What is more--even her students like it! The whole thing began very sim- ly. A few years ago a friend in ranee sent Miss Leonard a copy of a recent novel, "Premier de Cordee" ("First on the Rope' 1 ) by Roger Frison-Roche. Miss Leonard describes it as a "beautiful regional novel that actually makes you feel as though you had lived in Savoy." It tells the story of a young mountain climber in the French Alps whose ambition was to be "first on the rope"--a professional mountain guide like his father and a long line of ancestors. Frison-Roche makes the story the more vivid since he is an ace mountain climber himself, as well as journalist and novelist. The associate professor in Hood's modern language department wished earnestly that this thrilling and beautiful story might be available for her classes. To be sure it would not be hard to get additional copies but it s not that easy a matter. Since a pupil studying a foreign language needs aids to her study the book would have to have a French-into-English vocabulary, questions, explanatory notes and the like. People who write novels in France don't automatically supply all these things for their English-speaking public any more than American writers do such for their non-English-speaking readers. Where There's A Will But the novel was too good to miss. So Miss Leonard decided there should be a classroom edition of the book--and she would do the editing. With the friend in France acting as mediary, arrangeVnents were made with the French author and publisher to have the book reprint, ed in America. ·Jl i *| Sandwiched into a busy teachinj schedule, the work of providing background material and fitting ar English vocabulary to the demand! of the French text went forward After months of work the new edi - tioa was ready for the publisher, Harcourt, Brace and Company, a then became available as a colle, text book. Moreover, the non-French-speak ing American will not be denied the vicarious thrills of Alpine climbing with Frison-Roche. An English translation of the book came out in. this country about the same time as _ the text book. From The Critique The evaluation of Miss Leonard's edition, written by J. Hayden Siler of the University of Wisconsin The French Review is as follows: "It is a genuine pleasure to wal-l come this classic of French Alpin- ism as a textbook. Those teachers in search of a really 'virile' and muscular novel will be eternally grateful to Miss Leonard for the fine classroom edition she has mada of it. "Premier de Cordee", which lias sold more than 750,000 copies in the ten years since its first appearance, is eminently worthy of a place in the college reading pr gram. It has undeniable litera _ merit, and it depicts a healthy an wholesome side of French life. Told in an engrossing manner, the lives of some of the Campagnie des Guides de Chamonix cannot fail to interest and 'enthuse' most students. "Miss Leonard says that her book *s suited for use at the second-year college level and in spite of some minor misgivings because of the 'technical' nature of some of the story she is undoubtedly right. There are questions and 'sujets rlflj conversation' at the end of the boolS The vocabulary is very complete, | and the notes particularly praiseworthy. They cover, vividly and excellently, certain difficult passages, Alpine terminology, popular expressions and words in the Savoyard dialect as well as some geographical clarifications. They all bespeak the careful work done by Miss Leonard." i nfil ild a brief honeymoon they will be at home for the presenl with the bride's parents. Tribby -- Deener A very pretty wedding took place at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Wiliam Knight, Knoxville, Nov. 17, when their daughter, Mary Frances Deener, became the bride of Willard Irayson Tribby, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ivan Hammond, Woodsboro.
