First Publication December 16, 1943 Last publication December 30th, 1943 Christmas Play To Be Repeated In Connecticut This year marks the 31st free per- formance of the pageant, "Holy Night"the first having been in 1912. A family affair, three mem- bers of the original cast, besides sons and grandsons of others, are taking part in the 1942 performance. The Villagers don't take their act- ing, and the play itself, in a light, or casual manner. Even though it takes but one hour, the play is re- hearsed over aod over again, year after year. The first rehearsals be- gin just after Thanksgiving when costumes are taken from the attic, and players begin to drop around in the evenings. When the play was first given, it was held at the town hall which hvz a leaky roof. When it rained, wa- ter came down on the lamps, the rest and the audience. Another dis- advantage was the lack of audience space. The play had to be given ;wo or three times a night so that the many villagers from neighboring ,owns could see it. Even with a larger and newer home the play still "packs them in." As did their parents many years ago, the audience and members of e cast see the same simple scene f the Annunciation, the Child in the manger at Bethlehem, the Adora- tion of the Magi, and the presence of the Angelsall played in panto- nime. A piano provides the only music for the various scenes, during which are played the songs "Holy Night," "He Shall Feed His Flock" from h.e Messiah, and Handel's "Largo." rhe music, too, like the pageant it- self, is the same as it was 30 years ago. I[[ Plenty of Trees It doesn't take 10ng to grow a suitable size Christmas tree from a seedling. That is one of the reasons why there isn't much possibility tha the nation's supply of Christmas trees will reach a point of depletion, Many farmers, having some acres of soil not suitable for regular farm- Lug turn the ground over to produc. ing evergreens for Christmas use, Many have thus undertaken the es. tablishment of Christmas tree plan. tations where harvesting is conduct. ed on a sustained yield basis. Most of the balsams, spruce, hem. locks, pines, cedars and firs used for this purpose are the product of northern swamp lands. Origin of Yule Gifts The giving of gifts to the poor at Christmas time originated with the belief that the Christ Child some- times came to the door as a beggar, Luminous Identification The Richmond, Va., fire depart- ment recently applied phosphores- For a great number of people, a house not decorated with Christmas greens would be dull indeed. One expert has pointed out, though, that there need be no fear that there ever will be a shortage of the greens peculiar to the various sections of this nation if proper care is taken in collecting the greenery. But as it is today, wanton de- struction in the collection of the Yuletide decorations, so thoughtful- ly placed for our use by Mother Nature, has brought about a dan- ger that we might not have some of the greens we are so accustomed to. There is a danger that the Ameri- can holly, in southern Atlantic coast states, and the laurel plants of the mountainous country o tile East, will both face extermination unless some organized method of harvest- ing is brought about. Three other Christmas decorative plants that are rapidly disappearing because of new, and increased de- mand, are the winterberry, the ground pine, and the bittersweet. To a large extelt these plants can be saved if the nation turns to the use of evergreen boughs, such as cedar, pine, hemlock and spruce. For a touch of color, artificial red berries could well be used. The story of our over commercial- ization is always connected with the background of the dissipation of our native plant life without regard to future stock. Some form of protec- tive law has to be put into effect to protect the quickly disappearing greenery. Restriction or prohibition in certain areas seems to be te coming necessity to save them. I heard the bells on Christmas Day Their old, [amiliar carols play, And wild and sweet The words repeat O] peace on earth, good.will to men! dad thought how, as the day had come, The bel/ries of all Christendom Had rolled along The unbroken song Of peace on earth, good.will to men! Till, ringing, swinging on its way, The world revolved from night to day A voice, a chime, A chant sublime Of peace on earth, good.will to men! Then ]rom each black, accursed mouth The cannon thundered in the South And with the sound The carols drowned O/peace on earth, good.will to men t. It was as i/an earthquake rent The hearth.stones of a continent, And made [orlorn The households born 0/peace on earth, good-will to men t. And in despair I bowed my head; "There is no peace on earth," I said; "For hate is strong And mocks the song 9/peace on earth, good.will to men'" , Then pealed the bells more loud and deep, t, o " G dts not dead: nor doth He sleep! The Wrong shall/ail, The Right prevail, With peace on earth, good.will to men!" --Henry Wadsworth Long/ellow. Decorate Christmas Tree 1,300 Feet Under Ground About ten yeas ago, in Ishpe- ming, Mich., timber haulers were on their way to a mine to put up some trussing, found a small Christ- mas tree on the side of the road which had probably fallen from a truck. One of the men picked up the tree and threw it on top of the timber. At the mine the tree was sent down 1,300 feet into the mine. One of the miners picked it up, put it on the side of the passageway. At lunch time some of the miners decorated the tree with bits of paper from their lunch kits. "Let's do this every year," one c them suggested. Since then a small Christmas tree is set up in that Michigan mine pas- sageway. And not only the miners, but their guests, gather 'round the tree at 6 a. m., exchange gifts and indulge in small talk for about a half hour before starting their shift.

II l-,,,Despite Priorities Yule Gadgets W!ll Abound I For Toy-Minded Youngsters Despite the war, the kids want toys at Christmas time. And Santa, who has lived through many wars, is going to see to it that his little friends get them. Because of war priorities, metal and mechanical toys will be practi- cally unobtainable. But wood and plastics will take their place. The type of toys that they are will bring fun and enjoyment to the children getting them. One of the new games seems, af first glance, to be a jig-saw puzzle. It is not exactly a puzzle, but what you make from it can be puzzling to those who behold it. This game consists of various pieces of colored and oddly shaped cardboard. By using the various, oddly cut pieces you can make a realistic looking lion, or house, or giraffe or even a zoo house to keep the "an-i-mules" in good condition. The real fun comes in on this game when you take the head of a baboon and put it on a giraffe's neck which is attached to an elephant's body with dog legs! To solve the milk delivery problem you can put horse legs on the body of a cow. Anothel" interesting game--a con- structive, entertaining one--is thai which has miniature bricks, deco- rated in waterproof red paint. With the bricks you can build all sorts ol buildings by laying them as a regu. lar bricklayer would. For mortar s trick type of stickum is used. Aftez you have built yourself a house, or s bombshelter, or a garage and then become tired of it, all that you need do is set the whole busines in water. The water loosens the stickum-mortar, the bricks fall apart, and you are ready once again to build another type of building. This year a new toy-gadget for the baby who is beginning to notice thai it has some mighty active arms and legs has been fixed up by Santa for distribution on Christmas morning. It is a cradle gym. It has a hori. zontal bar strapped across the top of the crib or play pen. From the bar hangs a trapeze, a climbing rope, ad flying rings. Even little, before-tot age creepers, it has been said, can do marveloua things on the "circus" equipment. Even though the children of U.S.A. 1942 won't be getting the usual type of toys for Christmas, they .wil] be getting some fine substitute& MERRY CHRISTMAS! .* f. r r r rJ / THE SAGUACHE CRESCENT
