' o o i Make Date With Your Soldier Boy Xmas The matter of telephone calls this Chrlstfhfta Is an unusually serious problem this year .because of ur^ gent war-time calls, according to Fred Timm, local manager of the Northwestern Bell Teephohe Company. He says war never takes a Holiday and th'« year there will be many added messages over normal holiday times. Extra operators are on duty and every effort will be made to put through long distance calls, but war calls come first. Therefore, according to Mr. Timm, if you plan to talk with those of yours in the armed service Write a letter and arrange for them'to place a call to you collect as such calls are more likely to get tfirough. In other,.Vords, if .you want to talk to your boy in the service make & date with-him to call you. That is the best way to have your Christmas visit. •''••' ,.V • .'.'•« 2 10 ; Emmetaburg 'Seconds Win ' The Academy second team went •down in defeat-to the Emmetsburg ;>seconds to the tune of 18-8.

Coach Nelson's boys are getting into their stride and should make a. fine showing during the season! Holdren rang up eight po.'oits for bur side with Black, a substitute? pulling down 7.
