• . <-•* ■**>. tf Christmas Invitation By Katherine Edelman TACK TRESLAR hunched his ** broad shoulders deeper into the big chair, turning a new page ol his book. He was reading a Christmas •tory, trying hard to become ab- sorbed in the tale. A sharp ring from the telephone brought him to his feet. Who could be calling him on Christmas eve? A strange voice responded to hia "hello." "I hate to bother you on Christmas eve, Mr. Treslar. But I'm ringing up to ask' if it would be possible for you to come and spend Christmas with me. My name it Bevan Willers. I live out at Rich- mond. I have a big home, and—" "But—but I don't even know you, Mr. Willers. There must be some mistake." "I want you!" the low voice was emphatic. "Will you come or not?" Jack repressed a quick exclama- tion. "I—I had thought of spending Christmas—" he began. "Wouldn't it be possible to change your plans? I have a feeling they could be side-tracked easily." Jack thought of the lonely Christ- mas he had been ...

v ,< How Good Boys Act the Week Before Christmas Legends Tell Story Of Christmas Tree Christmas trees are as old as Christmas itself, if the story which has come down to us from the first Yuletide is true. The legend relates that after the Three Wise Men and the shepherds who had heard the angels sing "Peace on earth and good will to men" had worshiped Mary's babe, trees began coming to Bethlehem to worship the Holy Child; trees from all parts of the world. .. and the greatest of these is charity ■ ; fXSiSS POLISHES APPLES". ■I v First came the native palms from around Bethle- hem, then came the maples, oaks, birches and hemlocks. At last there crept in a tiny fir tree from the frozen North. It was so small and modest that hone paid any attention to it until suddenly a star dropped from the skies and twinkled on a bough of the little tree, then another and another, until the fir tree wks spangled with celestial lights. Decoration Idea is Old. Many more stories are told about the ...

Idea§i( Cfjttetmaa Canblcs \U Christmas tree candles date back to the very earliest times in the Christian era. The Yule candle, of goodly size, lighted early Nativity Celebrations. The lighting of can- dles is indeed a universl religious and national custom. Candle light- ing featured the Norse mid-winter festival of the turning of the sun, The Jewish Feast of Chanuckah or Lights is also celebrated similarly •t the same season. Cfjrfetmas Watch Your Weather During Christmas Day! Remember these old supersti- tions about Christmas weather: If the sun shines through the apple tree on Christmas day, there will be a good crop the fol- lowing year. If ice will bear a man before Christmas, it will not bear a mouse afterward. Thunder and lightning Christ- mas week means mach snow the rest of the winter. Wet causes more damage than frost before than after Christmas. If it snows Christmas night, the bop crop will be good next year. At Christmas meadows green, at Easter covered with frost. If...

6 : . i 32Fnv£Ry (A CHRISTMAS STORY) ' By Rotftr Wheeler EDITH'S drab room over- looked a snow-covered roof. Not the clean, cheery snow like |they had back home on the farm but a murky gray covering on which rested the soot of a thou- sand city chimneys. "So this is Christmas," she moaned, leaving her chair to pace the floor. "Oh! What I'd give to be back home tomorrow!" But then, Edith had two Christ- mas presents to which she could look forward. Today, Christmas eve, the mailman MUST bring her annual package from home. And tomorrow there wouid be Christmas dinner with Ken—dear Ken who was working so hard these days that he could hardly take time off to think about Christmas. Edith heard the bell ring down- stairs and she skipped to her door, opening it softly and waiting tensely while the old landlady, an- swered. Yes, it was the mailman! And then came the shrill cry: "Miss Harris! Mail for you!" Edith practically leaped down- stairs, for there would be her pack- age from home. Th...

Illuminated Christmas Tree on Front Lawn Will Give Extra Beauty to Your Home AN ILLUMINATED tree in front of a house always makes it took more "homey" on Christmas ■ «ve. It need not necessarily be a pine or flr tree—it may be any ever- freen standing apart or in shrub- ery hugging the house. The lighted tree or shrub not only makes the home look more beauti- . ful, but also serves as a definite contribution to the community Christmas spirit. There is, of course, a right and a wrong way to do this, as there is in doing everything else. The ordinary indoor Christmas tree lighting sets are not apt to prove very satisfac- tory, although often they serve the purpose. But much more often their exposure to the elements spells their doom. For one thing the lamps are quite small, and also because the cord or wire is not properly pro- tected by rubber or other safety in- sulation that will aid it in withstand- ing the uncertain weather of Christ- mas week. In buying such an illuminating set ...

f luimwi m I NEWS FROM MINERVA ■ I f'HRISTMAS eve. Streets white with swirling snow flakes. Marionetta, behind the counters of the flve-and-ten, peered into one of the little ten-cent mirrors it was her business to sell. Marionetta was crying because there was no Santa Claus. More than anything she hated to go back to the tiny basement flat that she and mother and Jim called home, and tell Jim the truth. 4Vim, or Jimmy, as Marionetta al- ways called him, was crippled. Mari- onetta insisted that he was too little yet to know about Santa Claus. She had gone without her lunch for days and days and saved her nickels and dimes to buy the things Jimmy wanted. That very morning she had started out to work, her precious savings tucked away in her purse, her heart all but singing out loud. Then, when she got off the car, someone in the motley crowd bumped her elbow and her purse was knocked from her hand. Marionetta dived for Mrs. Nellie Charles of Waco and Mr. and Mrs. C. T. Storm of Fort W...

list Suggests Gift Variety For Christmas Christmas-giving becomes more fun and less of a chore each new Yuletide season. Time was when "what to give a woman" came un- der what man termed "a nerve- wracking" problem! That's all changed now. To prove it, here's a list of Christ- mas gift suggestions for the fairer sex, compiled especially for hus- bands, brothers, fathers, sons, sweethearts. If the lady-to-be-gifted is socially minded, she undoubtedly will appre- ciate a gift that will enhance her party clothes—an evening bag per- haps ... a sparkling piece of cos- tume jewelry ... a pair of gloves . . . sheer hose, or perfume. But perhaps she is a homemaker, busy from morn til night with the problems of a house and family. A stunning quilted robe for her few hours of relaxation ... a pair of house slippers that are casual and colorful ... a crystal salad set for luncheon entertaining ... all these will be appreciated! For the high school or college miss ... a sweater in one of the ne...
