I'll make one guess: You'd wish that somewhere in 'he troubled places of our sorry world there might be raised a wonderous Christmas tree, so tall the silver star of bethlehem unon ton would touch the sky, that all- might .see. It's great, green boughs would bond beneath the tokens of goodwill, and round, its base would gather a vast choir of all races who would carol songs of peace. Fanciful, isn't it? Well, there's little harm in wishing. Perhaps if we wish hard enough, our vision may cnme true. Reminiscense was what set your correspondent dreaming. To those of us who live in climes which favor evergreens, the Christmas three has come to be the symbol of the day. I've snent. the anniversary in far places: On the fighting front Dickens' Christmas Carol Paver—in far off Tndi"—in Bethlehem beside the Holy Manser.

But what he says will be simpler, and easier to understand, than the report they turned out. It's heavy going although economists like themselves ' may not think so. Yet it looks as if it were written for economists only. An average reader would find the report difficult and tiresome. Newspaper writers, last night and today, have written long stories on the report. But these newspaper writers have had to translate into fairly simple, readable English what the economists seem to have had in their minds. Here's an example of the report, and it's far from the heaviest: "From our economic analysis of sustained maximum production, we we have Star of Hope W9( Press 1927, Conjolldotod janunrv 18. 192?

Little Rock, Dec. 23 —(/P) •— Tho office of the attorney general has denied a request by U. 3. restrict sion to appeal an Eighth Circuit Court reversal of the Clennie Joe Buchanan conviction to the U.

In reversing and remanding the case for retrial, the appeals -lourt held that there was no evidence that Roberts and Buchanan entered into a conspiracy to transport money into Arkansas. Little Rock, Dec. 28 —(/P)— Polly Deer, 10 - year - old Blvthevitle school girl, has tho official assurance of Assistant Attorney General Jim Bunn • hat no one has killed four of Santa Clans' reindeer.

She told Bunn, school law special! 0 * 1 of the attorney general's office, • that she understood he answered questions for school people and since she was "a little school girl" she wanted him to tell her whether .someone had killed four of Santa's reindeer and if Santa would not be able to come this Christmas "because he will not have his reindeer. 1 In an official opinion, Bunn wrote Polly that he was assured by an employe of the Game and Fish Commission that the animals in question are Arkansas deer known as Virginia white - tailed deer and were not reindeer. o 'Insincerity' Blamed for World's Troubles By JOHN MCKNIGHT Vatican City.

But i does it mean those at the top should get less and those at the bottom more? The language is vague all right.

N Secretary General Trygve Lie, who dispatched a telegram "last night to Warren Austin, chief U. S. dele gale, calling attention to a provi sion in the agreement under which the United Nations headquarters was established here. The agreement provides that no correspondent accredited to the vorld organization shall be com pelled to leave the United States until the U. N. secretary general ias been consulted. Pointing out .hat he had not been notified in advance of the deportation proceedings; Lie wired Austin: "Would appreciate prompt consideration in conformity with headquarters agreement." Lie's action also was expected to cielay deportation proceedings pcnctmg against an India'n correspondent accredited to the U. N. Lie acted after receiving a message from the Greek correspondent — Nicholas Kyriazidis — advising that he was being detained at Ellis Island for deportation "on charges concerning only my political affiliation."

I felt foolish and relieved. During the night, my subconscious had figured out what had happened to that little unmarked packet of poison. , I hadn't put it back in the dressing table after I used some for the cat and Ccmsuelo had found it when Kile was giving my house a lick and a promise on her last visit and had simply thrown it out with Ihe trash. IS My car wouldn't start that day. The starter sang a little when I put my foot on it and wouldn't turn the motor over. I happened to think of Jimmy Peters und went back into the house and called him. He -hadn't started for the studio and he said he'd stop by and pick me up. It was the first time I had seen took her to the Osear dinner last winter, just after I got out of the Aimy. She seemed to go for rne, to. But every lime I called her after that she was busy.

I said suddenly. "Madge may feel differently about it how. And I wouldn't wait too long either. H she's the hit I think she's going to be in this picture you'll have u lot, of competition." Jimmy looked at rne and grinned. "What are you trying to do, play Cupid?" He grinned some more. "At that it might not be a bad idea." The funny thing, looking back now, is how closely I came to the \ motive for our murders in that talk with Jimmy Peters. He hud the key to everything and nobady ever asked him.
