■SAFETY FIRST nt«T Merry Christmas Also Famous As Year's No. 1 Danger Season It*8 Apple Red If you want a truly merry Christmas be sure that the frivolity of the season doesn't turn if into tragedy. The National Safety Council points out that the Holidays are the most dangerous part of the year, re- plete with auto casualties, home accidents, burns and falls. Keep these "don'ts" in mind and you'll live to see the new year: DON'T give children dangerous toys, or toys with sharp points. If they operate with electricity, be sure you supervise their use. DON'T decorate the tree with lighted candles unless it's absolutely unavoidable. Carefully wired elec- tric bulbs are much safer. DON'T place the tree near a stove or fireplace. DON'T leave a lighted tree un- guarded at any time; you must be on the lookout for fires". DON'T use a rickety, unsafe lad- der in decorating the tree. DON'T place Christmas candles near the tree, curtains, paper wreaths or other decorations. DON'T overlook the ...

m ITie SPUR of thcTTomcnt IPi^OPE^ALDROP 1TVERYBODY except confirmed ~~ bachelors and spinsters from choice is interested in domestic phe- nomena. And the marital happiness of others is a matter of wonder and inquiry on the part of matrimonial parties who have missed it. The Vanners—Rose and John—had been married two years and had lived at a hotel all of that period ex- cept the weeks devoted to honey- moon travel. They were happy, and this state in a hotel is unusual with married pairs for any considerable period. After Mrs. Vanner's women friends had discussed the matter among themselves without solution one of them made bold to ask her about it. "A man and a woman can be hap- py anywhere if they are in love with each other and if they are truthful— absolutely truthful—with each oth- er," was Mrs. Vanner's explanation. Not that they prided themselves on their veracity, or paraded virtues. It just happened that they were such good pals that deceit had no place in their association....

iY C UXI " Wi (.SON BILL YARDLEY poked a tentative eye outside his .blanket. It was daylight, at last. Across the tiny cabin Jim was snoozing quietly, his measured breath almost ;drowned by the roaring wind 'outside. Bill's eyes surveyed th« cabin with its old stove and rickety furniture. Cosy enough, perhaps, but this was no way to spend an entire winter, even for the sake of g«o> Eaphical accuracy. Several hun- ed miles to the south, in Winnipeg, the government office was waiting for early spring when Bill and Jim could finish their surveying assign- ment and bring back a repoQk. The pilot dumped overboard a huge bundle. Ahead, meanwhile, were two months of this maddening snowbound si- lence. Bill's glance drifted to the calen- dar. Suddenly he caught his breath— "Jim!" he shrieked. "Wake upl Wake up! Do you know what day this is?" Jim groaned, stirred a bit, and answered sleepily. "Tuesday, ain't it? And so what?" "Jim! It's Christmas Eve!" A few minutes later they found thems...

Ann Carson climbed quickly down off the small stepladder she was using to hang the glittering an- gel on the topmost bough of the Christmas tree. The sharp clang of the doorbell was a welcome sound. Hastening joyously she flung the door wide open. "For me? Come in, Timmy." She smiled down at the wizened old hunchback shivering on the door- step. Ann took the package tendered almost ceremoniously, bearing con- spicuously the label of his own small flower shop. And with the privilege of a lifelong friend Timmy followed her into the warm lamplit room. Slowly and musingly Ann untied the bright tinsel bows. She knew without looking what the box con- tained and as her fingers broke the seals she seemed again to hear Jer- ry's voice, low, quivering and hurt. They had gone to a dance that memorable Christmas eve and homeward through the whitening mist she had tried, bravely, to tell him she must marry another man....
