Santa Claus Keeps Up With Youngsters REQISTEH-STAR NEWS 15 Sandusky, O., FrI., Vcc. 1(5, 1fl55 tT PHYLLfS BATTELM<; Copyright, W55, by INS NEW YORK — S^nta Claus . tralked into the nfficc - with a hihlio'ho and two press agents —ami put his problem squarely on th« table. "I Wouldn't be anybody else hut Santa Claus, honestly," he said and .vou knew that he felt it, deep down under the foam rubber stomaciie. "But you've got to go some to Iceep up with the kids tliese days. "Twenty-five years ago, it was •a»y. They asked for toys. Toda.v they want space suits and Jet pilot clothes and uranium and things like that. Also if they watch tele vision, they want—ha-ha-h()—live animals of curious varieties." Why .lust the other day. said Santa, a little girl said she wanted « live alligator. "I tried to sell her on a doll buggy or a table and chairs and a tea set, but she said •o. "Finally I looked over at her mother and dad and Ihcy nodded, so 1 was off the hook and said 'All right, Sall.v, I'll bring you a live alligator.' " * * * Things being how they are with tho quick-thinking kids of today, Santa just hopes mother and dad knew what they were nodding about. Because he feels bad when little children confront him with remarks like: "Santa Claus, you sure made a heck of a mistake last year. You remember that bike I asked for? Joe got it, down the block." After being the nation's only full- time Santa Claus for a quarter of a century, these little boners di.stress Jim Yellig of Santa Glaus, Indiana.

I've been Santa so lotig I've got built in eluickk's. Sonioliines gets on Mrs. Claus's nerves." (Actually, chimed m the press agent from Indiana, Santa .lim is a religious man wlio makes a meagre living from his Christmas chores. The press agent for Dennis James' "On Your Account" TV sho^v, which brought him to New York as the most gouiine of the large crop of St. Nichol;ises, added his Madison Avenue-type recommendation. "If tills man were on TV, he'd be bigger than CJIeason.") It is hard to tell when a Santa Claus is blushing, because of tlio all-over native redness of him, but Jim jjresumably blushed as he said: "I try to be tlio best Santa I know how to be." Among oilier tilings lie has learned—lately—from kiddies are these facts: Little buys want to be pilots or cowboys: little girls want to be mothers or cowgirls.
