MONDAY, NOVEMBER 26, 1951 Deemphasis Again Thaijksgiving week just about ends the football season, and there is another infallible sign that this is it: Colleges are talking up deemphasis again. Football is to be brought back to the campus. Protest is raised against bowl games in which the boys pass and tackle for the glory and gate receipts of assorted Chambers of Commerce. These and other manifestations of deemphasis in the annual blueprint stage are standard practice, as much a part of football as Saturday's kiekoff. or the alumni kicks which follow a losing game. This time, however, the arguments for deemphasis are economic as well as academic. Production costs are up, the box office down. Some recovery is noted, especially in the East, from the slump of 1950. But even restrictions on television, last year's villain, haven't filled those wide-open stadia spaces week by week. So maybe there is something at last to the talk of deemphasis. The American Council of Education had a committee of 10 college presidents scouting the game. The committee is to meet soon in Washington to discuss abuses which should be eradicated. At New Haven, Yale follows Williams. wesleyan and Amherst, and abolishes spring practice, Penn State is talking of doing the same. All this could mean that colleges have concluded to take the »ame away frorn coaches and alumni and, as they used to say, give it back to the boys. It could mean, in fact, that higher education has suddenly discovered aims and aspirations which extend beyond the goal line. letters To The Editor Deplore Commercialisation of Christmas Season To The Editor Of The News, Sir: Why does Frederick ever take down its Christinas decoration? Wouldn't it be simpler for the merchants, to leave their windows decorated with grotesque Santas and red-nosed reindeer so that Christmas, like death and tuxes, could always be with us? The absurdity of Chrislmas-m-November seems to indicate just such a trend. Is there any valid icason for prematurely - lighted Christmas trees and laurel-bedecked thoroughfares? Christmas should be a sacred season, not a laborious scr- ies of decorated days c u l m i n a t i n g in December t w e n t y - f i f t h and "now things can get back to normal again!" Granted t h a t holly and laurel and lighted trees are important to the season, but these adornment!® have become bigger than Christmas itself, which is left to play the incidental role of anotner day olf from work. Yes, the lukewarm water of longevity has quenched our Christmas spirit. But there Is more. It has swallowed up Thanksgiving as well. A hallowed day to our grandfathers has becdme merely the thirty-third shopping dny before Christmas! Thanksgiving is as serious and beautiful, though not so universal, as the Christmas season. Can't we enjoy it for itself? Can't we learn to be grateful for what we have, before we are reminded of what we can give or what we may gel? The Thanksgiving turkey is no longer a treat, now that we eat it all year, in the same way our children will lose the thrill of. Santa's visit in an age when he "arrives" on November 23 and is ubiquitous for well over a month. We, as oui-of-town-Frederick- tonians, are not alone in our disappointment at finding our town already decorated. It strikes even more deeply those who can remember the warmth of a really old- fashioned short Christmas. Even the weather is indignant: it won't snow any more at Christmas time! We don't want to be told that all this minimizes the headaches of Christmas shopping by prolonging it and preventing a last-rninute ''rush." True (Christmas giving should carry with it no headaches or feeling of exchange, only the spirit of love which long ago created Christmas in a manger. We must never, never lose sight of that Birth. . , We like to think that the blame for all this lies with malignant witches and goblins who lingered after Hallowe'en to light our Christmas trees, and not with the Frederick that we know and love. Sincerely, NANCY PEARRE CHRISTINE MEADOWS (N. B. '" ; s letter was written hefore you. "Specially Contributed*' editorial came to our attention. We submit it anyway, as ardent approbation of the sentiment you have already expressed.) Christmas Bazaar At HomeForAged By. BETTY SULLIVAN The first flixn of the Home for the Aged,-115 Record street, Wednesday will be converted to a reptica of Santa Claus's store room. The occasion will be the annual Christmas bazaar and sale to swell the Home's fund for an infirmary. Hours will be 1 30 to 5 and 7 to 9 p. m. For months the Home's 29 residents and six-member staff have devoted every spare moment to preparations for the sale which has come to be of top importance in Frederick's pre-Christmas season. Board members, too, and a number of friends have contributed hours of -work to provide handmade articles for the bazaar. For several months past the board has set aside a day a week which members spent sewing and knitting in the Home with the residents. Such large quantities of materials have been accumulated for this year's sale that almost the entire first floor of the Home will be utilized to show and sell the articles which range from wooly stuffed animals to exquisite antique china and glass. Hand made gift items will Include knitted wear for infants, dresses for little girls, shirts and overalls for little boys, aprons, table linen, towels, and a variety of other handcraft products. There also will be growing plants in small "iaitractive containers, prepared Iry one of the Home's residents. These articles will be displayed in the sun parlor. The dining room, appropriately enough, will be turned into a "pantry" display with tables loaded with cakes, cookies, candy, and preserves and jellies especially prepared foi the sale by friends of the Home. The front parlor will become a show rocm for antiques donated also by friends. For the occasion residents and Board members will serve as sales ladies. Mrs. Edgar H. McBride will be treasurer for the day. Mrs. J. Walker Carty and Mrs. Tyson Lee are co-chairmen for the ba/.anr; Mrs. H. Ross Walker is chairman of the antique section; Mrs. William M. Storm, of the pantry supplies: and Mrs. R. E. Delaplainc, Board picsident, is in charge of the fancy work. The Christmas sale, begun in 1949, has been most successful in past years and in 1950 wns the means of raising $1.600 for the infirmary fund. One of the Home's most pressing needs is more modern and efficient fjicilities for caring fbr ill residents. Addition of an up-to- date i n f i r m a r y "not only would provide medical cure but would release six rooms for l i v i n g quarters for additional guests. Residents ;it present wre at capacity n u m b e r ;md a w a i t i n g list attests the place the Home for t h e Ajjod has in t h e comm u n i t y . The Home is operated without benefit of tax f u n d s and acquisition of the greatly needed i n f i r m a r y will be through donations and the ure-Christmas bazaars.

WASHINGTON, Nov. 2«--Some- body on the "ghost writing" staff o£ President Truman has gotten very fond of the word "slick." It first appeared when the President became irritated over published criticism and took occasion to denounce some of the things being said about his administration in what he called "slick magazines." Just the other day, Mr. Truman, in a speech before the Women's National Democratic Club, again used the word when he referred to the "slick public relations counsellors" which he expected the Republicans to be enlisting in the next presidential campaign. The dictionary defines "slick" as having several meanings. While American slang uses the word 'slick" as referring to magazines ·printed on heavy, glossy paper," Lhe dictionary also defines the word as meaning "sly, tricky, etc." Maybe this will give the Republicans an idea, because they could readily adopt thp slogan: "It's slick o be sick." That's a bit hard to :ay, but not very difficult to get across when one begins to examine :he long list of persons who have aeen under fire in the administra- :ion and have suddenly resigned for reasons of ill health. Some persons who have been under-charges lave remained on the payroll just long enough to qualify for certain retirement benefits. It is said that sometimes, when retiring for ill lealth, there is also a bonus paid. Not all the prominent persons who have been in the headlines ecently and who have been giving up their positions for reasons of 11 health are, of course, guilty of any wrongdoing. One official is -eported to have said, however, hat he really was being advised )y his physician to resign from the government but that he didn't ike to do it now because of the nnuendo the action might convey. Is it "slick" for the Administra- ion to let anyone resign for reasons of health when actually there '.as been wrongdoing which should be exposed to the fullest degree. When charges were first made in the press against Chairman Boyle of the Democratic National Committee. Mr. Truman took it upon himself to give Mr. Boyle, metaphorically speaking, a clean bill of health. There was no suggestion at that time that Mr. Boyle was actually unable to perform the duties of the Democratic National Chairman, and ; the defense by the White Hous against the charges made in conne'c tion with the American Lithofolc case and loans at the RFC continu ed to occupy the headlines fo: quite a while. Then suddenly*i was decided to make a change in ti chairmanship of the Democrat! National Committee. An examination _of the letter bj the President at that time indicate; that he believes the charges whicl were made against Mr. Boyle wen not justified. There was no Wrongdoing involved so far as violatior of any law was concerned, bu whether the Democratic Nationa Chairman was entirely ethical in hi post because of relationships wit ·corporations that sought favors fro: the government was debated Congress, and it certainly does looi a bit "slick" to use the reason o. "ill health" when, as a matter o. fact, the resignation of the Demo cratic National Chairman was beinj demanded by Democrats in Congress, largely because they though' he had outlived his iisefulness a; the chairmen of the Democratic National Committee. It seems certain that when Congress reconvenes there will be a investigation of all the cases "ill health'' has been given, as t reason for resignation or retire ment from the government in con 1 nection with published charges o. irregularities or wrongdoing. It wil become necessary to separate the sheep irom the goats--to really giv« a clean bill of health to those whc have done nothing wrong and are really ill but who are going to suffer from the innuendoes. There is no doubt that some of the controversies that have arisen qiU of the exposures in CongressionB committees have produced a good deal of sickness here and there in the Administration and that certair officials have not been able to per form their duties because of the weight of the criticism leveled against them. It is most unfortunate when innocent persons worry themselves to the point that they must leave the government service oil account of ill health. But it is not in the public interest to let anybody resign, retire, or sever connections with the government on the ground of ill health where there has been guilt and where the public is entitled to all the facts. To do this is to engage in what might popularly be called a "slick" practice. (Reproduction Rights Reserved) Surviving are two daughters: Mrs. David W. Everts, Halethorpe, and Mrs. Rudolph E. Crouse.
