I i 1 i m ¥ e (fiawcron Hera U) VOLUME, NUMBER 81. uuno ur J. S. FLEET ARE DENIED Hungry guns of the United utates fleet in the Asiatic waters were denied revenge for the crime at Pearl Harbor late Thursday as the Japanese fleet suddenly confronted by an American Asiatic squadron turned tail and ran away. Admiral Hart, chief in command of the far eastern rleet, in a statement said that the American fleet, search- ing for the Japs, came upon the enemy at sundown. Darkness pie- vented a contact as American ships were restrained. At daylight the chase was resumed. Admiral Hart said the Jap fleet turned tail and van away from the American fleet. This communication was official. It is to be presumed that the American fleet has taken up thp chase and is in hot pursuit of the Japs, although the enemy is credited with time enough to get away in the night. American submarines are very active in the Pacific. One Japanese Cruiser and a des- troyer have been sunk off Wake Island by United State...

sy SMSMA ANN aenvncT \4ARTHA was dependable. Like a patient, willing and uncom- plaining horse. Her life on her small farm was not different from a tread mill, always the same, day in and day out, month after month, year after year. There had been a time when Mar- tha was not alone. That was when her older sister Helen and her younger sister Nancy and her still younger brother Curt lived there at the farm. But that was a long time •go, longer still since their parents had died. The sisters were beauti- ful and had married well, and Curt, possessed of burning ambitions, had left to make his way in the world. Frequently they came out to call, to "eat one of Martha's wonderful dinners" and "get a breath at coun- try air." It was on a Christmas day that Nancy brought Barre Howard out. "I knew you wouldn't mind, dar- ling," she gushed. "Mr. Howard it • traveler and he's lecturing in town tomorrow night." Martha smiled and nodded and looked up into Barre Howard's tanned face, a face that ...

Utm^' Christmas Carols Each holiday season the fa- miliar words of the tuneful Christmas Carol ring out all over the country. The origin of these songs is both interesting and colorful. While tome of them were composed here in America, others were written and set to music in other parts of the world. Below, with illus- trations, and a brief history of origin are presented some of the better known of these songs. O LITTLE TOWN— O little town of Bethlehem, How ttill we see thee lie; Above thy deep and dreamiest sleep The silent stars go by .. . # These words were written in 1868 by Phillips Brooks, young rector ot Philadelphia, after a visit to Pales- tine. His church organist, Lewis Bedner, wrote the melody. It came to him "in a dream" on Christmas Eve. I HEARD THE BELLS — THE AMERICAN JUNIOR RED ROSS This year three hundred and twen- ty children have enrolled in the Ju- nior Red Cross out of the Ada Hen- derson School.

h ' I Vs Lincoln, Roosevelt Bring Spirit Of Christinas to White House Dear Santa Claua: Bring me a football please, a gun, some oranges and a watch. Love, Catarino Montelongo. Bring us peace. I am in the second grade and will be 8 yean old the 29th day of January. Love, Merjorie Ann Richter. The White House has seen all kinds of Christmases during the 140 years that it has domiciled the Pres- ident of the United States. There 'have been rowdy, fun-loving Christ- mases during the Teddy Roosevelt administration, and there have been long stretches when Santa Claus wasn't quite sure whether to stop at 1600 Pennsylvania avenue. John and Abigail Adams, the first tenants of the "President's Palace" .brought no children to it, and Mrs. Adams felt that New England was a much better place lor the seat of the government. There have been many other child- less Chris tmases in the White House, such as the dull period be- tween the Tylers and the Lincoln*. But probably the two families which will...

LVovel Decorations Enliven Appearance Of Christmas Tree Before pulling out the old box of ornaments used for trimming the Christmas tree for the past several years, it is a good idea to plan some other decoration which will make the tree different than it ever was 7u ,An occasional change from the old familiar design will do much to brighten up the room. One novel arrangement is to imi- tate the snow-draped trees of the forest as closely as possible. Trim the tree all in white with popcorn necklaces, tissue paper snow balls, white glass ornaments and frosted white lights. The effectiveness of this color will be increased if green wreaths with red berries are used about the room. A graceful pine tree trimmed lav- ishly all in gold ornaments has a fine formal grandeur about it and is particularly distinguished in certain rooms. In contrast to this a tree trimmed entirely with red and white lights and red and white striped candy canes is very young and in- formal in heart. Little pleat...

"I'm not doing this at all well," he hesitated, "but—" "Save that bedside manner of yours for the younger women," Ma snapped. "I want the truth." John Monroe tapped the shabby desk top with nervous fingers. "Well," he said, reluctantly, "you were a doctor's wife. You under- stand about these things." "Yes or no?" Ma was relentless. "Yes." Relief and concern sat heavily on the doctor's face. "That heart of yours—you've known for years—even before the Big Doc died you knew that—" "That it wouldn't last forever. I'm 65.

Christmas Play —<♦— By Katherine Edelman T HE town hall was wreathed with * holly and mistletoe. Bright red i bells hung from the old-fashioned chandeliers. Christmas candles sent , their soft glow into the night. The I whole place cried out welcome to the crowd who thronged through the doors. I By eight o'clock every seat was I occupied. Small gossip and mur- , murs of expectancy ran through the j crowd. The little town was proud (of the boy who was taking the lead- : lng part in the play. They had , known Ted Rawlings all their lives, j Known him as an easy-going lad, in- j terested in nothing more than flsh- ! ing and hunting around the coun- i try, and later as an astonishingly j changed ambitious fellow.

/T I tjk H : I M r-f, SANTA Goes Modern JUST THANKS "Being a husband on Christmai reminds me of Thanksgiving." "Why?" "Because, about the only thing one gets is thanks."

Epiphany Saw Arrival Of Three Wise Men Twelfth-Night is the evening be- fore Epiphany, or Twelfth-Day, which is the festival celebrated on January 6, the twelfth day after Christmas. It honors the arrival of the three wise men at Bethlehem. It is held by some that Twelfth- Night commemorates the appear- ance of the star of Bethlehem to the three wise men. In any event, the festival symbolizes the manifes- tation of Christ to the Gentiles. The Daily Herald joins in these expres...

How- Installment 2 She opened her mother's letter, and was suddenly touched. Home for Christmas! For a moment, Lyd- la was struck with a sharp loneli- ness for all the old familiar faces and places of her childhood. After all, she could fly West. It had been a long while since she was home. Longer than she had realized. And besides, it might be a pleasure to return to Mountain Creek, sophisticated and handsome and sleek with her years of New York and foreign living. The door opened. Carter Wain- wright entered the dining room. As if by magic, Kato purred in from the pantry, laden with hemispheres of golden melon in valuable silver bowls.

Christmas Season Celebrated Before Christ TFas Born It's Easy to Select A Christmas Tree That Holds Needles DEFENSE COM HERE URGES STRIKE AC Strange as it seems, the Christ- , mas season was celebrated long be- fore Christ was born. Of course, it wasn't called Christmas then, but Biany religious and pagan ceremo- nies were held during the Christmas period. This period is celebrated by the Jews as the Festival of Lights or ! Dedication. According to Jewish history, a large force of Maccabees lefeated an army of Syrians in 165 B. C. The victors began the work tt purifying the desolate Jerusalem, completing their task on December tS. The Jews have celebrated the •ight days previous to December 25 •ver since that time. The proximity of Christmas to the winter solstice caused many pagan ceremonies to be held during that period. In Scandinavian countries, Seat fires were kindled in the mid- e of December to defy the Frost King. Centuries before this, the ancient Druids of England observed...

. ; . v*. How Other Lands Mark Christmas A melting pot of the world, America has created in Christmas traditions from eountless customs brought across the seat from foreign lands. In these far-away places the Yuletide symbols of bygone ages still endure. Here are a few of them: ENGLAND: Christmas to rural Englishmen means not only the observance ol Christ's birth, but also a parting of • the ways between the old year and j the new.
