Minister Hits 'Commercial Christmas Urging that "Christ be put back into Christmas," the Rev. James W. Rainwater, pastor of the First Christian Church, told members of the Kiwnnis Club yesterday that Christinas has become so commercialized that "Santa Claus has re- ', placed the Babe of Bethlehem In: the center of the stage." j Speaking at the club's weekly j luncheon meeting In Hotel Noble, the Rev. Mr. Rainwater urged the. Kiwanians fio .something to "turn ; the tide of Christmas back to j Christ." "It is generally recognized that such a job is for ministers of the gospel, but you a.s individuals can do more to turn the tide than a do/en ministers," he said. "The use of Santa Claus as n symbol for Christmas is all right in some instances." the Rev. Mr. Rainwater stated. "There are some things about the old boy that are eternal—cheer and good will. "But, there are many things that have crept Into the picture through the use of Santa that are not wholly ! in keeping with the idea and ideals I of Christmas." i He ur r ;ed tlie Kiwanians "not to confuse these things with the true i Chri.'tmas spirit, as they have no place there." The Rev. Mr. Rainwater was in- i traduced by Kiwanlan Bill Railer, club program chairman for the j month. i Maj. Gerald Robson, Jr., was a guest at ye.sterday's meeting.
