CHRISTMAS

THOUGHTS
Prepared for Port St. Joe
Woman's Club


An International Festival
By Elizabeth Boykin
With the world so tattered and
torn, it might give us pause amid
plans for ur own Christmas cele
bration to recall what a truly, in
ternational festival is the Ameri
can Christmas. Not only because
of its universal spiritual signifi
chance, not only because a mid
winter holiday has been the mos
important of the year for man as
far back as we have records,, and
long before the dawn of the
Christian era, but in the simple
folks' way of Christmas it is :
blending of many cultures, many
customs.
True it is in our adoption of
them, they have, like our langu
age, acquired a very native qual
ity of their own, but we dare not
forget our debt to older lands and
older dreams. From Holland's St
Nichoals we evolve our Santa
Claus, and from Germany came
the endearing Christmas tree. Eng-
land' gave us the flaming plum
pudding and, many of our most be-
loved, carols. From the Latin coun-
tries we have the tenderly signifi
cant creache, while Mexico is the
homeland of the poinsettia. From
Sweden we have the gracious ges-
ture of the sheaf of wheat on the
gatepost 'so that the birds can
share the holiday. Besides there
are innumerable customs like the
Yule log that belong literally to
the whole world, so far back do
we find them in legends of this
winter festival celebrating the tri
umph of light over darkness.
The symbolism which has his-
torically attached itself to this
holiday was appropriately signifi-
cant when the occasion came to
be a great Christian festival. Even
the holly and mistletoe entwined
as they are with winter holiday
lore as old as the Druids,, were
expressions of Christmas, too, and
so the hollyberries came to repre-
sent the drops of Christ's blood,
the leaves the crown of thorns,
while the mistletoe 'berries became
symbols of Mary's tears.
Partof o ur American tradition
of Christmas is bound up in our
literary heritage from other lands,
this chiefly from Britain because
of our language bond. It would bh
difficult to measure the extent oz
our debt in Diclens for the way
we think about Christmas.
Walter Scott, Ceorge Elliot ann
Shakespeare have all added to our
conception of Christmas. America
owes an immortal debt to Italy
for the heritage of sacred art she
has given us; any sheaf of Christ-
mas cards, an y collection or
Christmas illustrations, include
these great paintings oC the Holy
Family, for they are the most il-
luminating interpretation of the
Christmas Story that man has
achieved.
These thoughts, are important in
a war year.

Scientists Undaunted
The very nature of tuberculo-
sis causes the darkness through
which Science
the latest an-
S swer to the dis-
S ease. Science
has proved that
TB is not inher-
ited but Is catch-
ing; that early
TB can be cured
and that the X-ray can find early
TB; that complete rest is imper-
ative for recovery and that sur-
gery can be used successfully.
But Science has other questions
to answer. Supported by Christ-
mas' Seal funds, medical re-
search is going on day in and
day out in seven universities In
this country to solve the remain-
ing mysteries of the disease.

Follow the Rules
When Addressing
Christmas Cards

How do you address a Christmas
card to a widow? A divorcee? A
business acquaintance? Here are
some tips on cards:
Generally speaking, greetings fall
into two classes, formal and infor-
mal. If you use printed or engraved
cards for formal use, the title Miss,
Mr., or Mr. and Mrs. should pref-
erably appear above the greeting.
For instance: "Mr. and Mrs.
Thomas Stanyon wish you a Merry
Christmas," rather than "A Merry
Christmas from Mr. and Mrs. Thon-
as Stanyon."
On informal cards, signed in ink,
the husband's or wife's name should
come first, although ordinarily the
person signing would put his own
name last. In general, the hus-
band's name comes first. These can
be signed "Bob and Betty," or "Bob
and Betty Bentley," depending on
how well the acquaintance knows
you.
No card should ever be sent with-
out a Mr., Mrs. or Miss prefix. An
unmarried woman 1i always ad-
dressed as "Miss." A married
woman, whether her husband is
alive or not, is addressed with
"Mrs." prefixed to her husband's
full name. Since a woman's maid-
en name is used only on legal pa-
pers or when she uses it profession-
ally, a divorcee's maiden name may
be used if it's been established by
legal procedure.
Cards to a married couple should
be addressed Mr. and Mrs., even
though you may know only one of
them. If it's a business acquaint-
ance and you haven't met the
recipient's wife, it's permissible to
send the card in his name only.
Business addresses are quite all
right, though there's a bit more
courtesy and more personal touch
to find out the home address and
send the card there.
A family in mourning may send
and receive Christmas cards as usu-
al unless the bereavement is very
recent-within the last two or three
weeks.

Watch Your Weather
During Christmas Day!
SRemember 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 much snow the
rest of the winter.
Wet causes more damage than
frost before than after Christmas.
If it snows Christmas night, the
hop crop will be good next year.
At Christmas meadows green,
at Easter covered with frost.
If windy Christmas day, trees
will bear much fruit.
Christmas wet gives empty
granary and barrel.
A green Christmas makes a fat
graveyard.
A warm Christmas, a cold
Easter.

EARLY CHRISTMAS SHOPPING
All right, Christmas shoppers, it's time to
wake up! Don't be caught napping this year
like you were last Christmas. Remember
that you have but eleven more shopping days
until Christmas. Perhaps you think you don't
need that kind of advice, but remember, it's
been the same every year-we resolve to do
our Christmas shopping early and then time
passes, and before we know it it is the day
before Christmas.
-There are distinct advantages to early shop-
ping. The early shopper has a better selec
tion-and right now the stores of Port St.
Joe have a varied stock of Christmas goods.
The early shoppers are not hurried in making
selections. They find store clerks better able
to care for their wants and to devote more
time to the customer. The clerks are not wor-
ried by the crowds and are not tired. Early
shoppers get more pleasure from their selec-
tions because they were made with care.
It doesn't seem possible that Christmas is
almost here, but it's just a matter of days
now. Remember back on Labor Day how
Thanksgiving seemed .a long way off-well,
it's already come and gone. Time is like that,
it just slips by, and the first thing you know
it's. Thanksgiving or Christmas right smack
in front of you.
Christmas shopping also calls for a few de-
tails-or it should. The wvise shopper not only
shops early, but also makes plans before the
tour. They sit down beforehand and make
out their shopping list, consulting the adver-
tisements in The Star as they do so,, That's
a step in the right direction, and the first step
to Christmas shopping.

WOLF DEVOURS WOLF
Old pioneers tell terrible tales of the wolf
pack. The beast that runs with it is safe. The
beast that is lamed or falls by the wayside is
lost. Its companions turn upon it and rend it.
That seems to be the code in the Balkans.
Beneath a surface often polished and pleas-
ing, there lurks a murderous savagery that
belies all civilization.
In former Serbia it took the form of mur-
dering a king and consort and throwing their
naked bodies out of the window. In Bulgaria
it took the form of assassination of two great
prime ministers.
In Rumania it has just taken the form or
the wholesale execution without trial of a
former premier and many high officials. One
day the Iron Guards, cowed by the slaying
of their leader, truckled to the mighty. The
next day, in power themselves, they slew
those to whom they had bowed the knee.
Wolf devours wolf.-Tallahassee Democrat.

Hoover wants to feed the hungry peoples
of Europe. Why not raise funds to feed the
hungry people of the United States? We fed
Europe after the World War and kept them
from starving so they could wage another
war. Probably some of those German youths
dropping bombs on England today owe their
health and life to the food provided by us.

While the first snowfall is blanketing the
North we in Florida are enjoying a blanket
of sunshine.


NEGLECTED OPPORTUNITY
For many years a great tide of visitors has
gone into South Florida and spent the winter
there, suffering from cold because their quar-
ters had no proper means of heatin. These
people invariably say: "I have never suffered
so much from cold in all my life." They say
this, too, in spite of the fact that they were
born and reared in a rigorous northern cli-
mate.
This is not imagination on their part, it is
the truth. You say: "If they have suffered
so much, why do they come 'back?" They do
not. Florida, would not hold its visitors if
the "turnover" was not so heavy. By skillful
advertising she catches a new set every win-
ter.
Now here is where West Florida comes in.
Her winters are more equal. In contrast with
the extreme northern winters they are mort.
mild. When taken with the better housing
and heating facilities, and abundance of fuel
they are more pleasant-whether you com-
pare them with South Florida winters or
northern winters.
These northern people do not object, to
moderate winter weather without snow and
ice. They like some bright, snappy frotsy
weather-when they have a nice snug room
with a bright fire to come in to. In short,
they like West Florida winters, which remind
them of the most pleasant season of all the
year back home-the days of autumn and In-
dian summer.
If proper apartments were provided, and
proper boarding places available, many middle
class people would find in our West Florida
towns exactly the climate and surroundings
they desire as a refuge from the extreme
northern winters. Two things only are neces-
sary. The accommodations must be provided
at reasonable prices, and the truth must be
brought to their attention through advertis-
ing. Disappointed southern visitors would be
our best prospects.
In the long run, such middle class tourists
will be worth more to us than the "high-fly-
ing snowbirds" that go to South Florida.-
Holmes County Advertiser.

The year 1940 is about to pass out of the
picture. Wonder what 1941 will bring forth?

Hide Away Extra Toys
So You'll Have Reserve
For 'Indoor' Days Later
Most children are flooded with'so
many toys on Christmas day that
they're positively bewildered and
therefore jump from one plaything
to another uncertainly. This is why
so many child experts recommend
that mothers take away and store
out of sight certain of the young-
sters' new possessions. When a
spell of bad weather comes later to


Too many toys confuse the child.
keep the children in the house, bring
out one or more of the toys in this
reserve supply. Or do it when you
have special company of your own
and want tg be sure of peace and
quiet. There are two reasons for
this. First, children enjoy playing
intensively with a few things than
being "snowed under" with too
many gifts. In the second place,
some of the toys they receive at
Christmas time may be too compli-
cated for their age.

Advertising doesn't cost-it pays!

Andy Devine Is

Genuine Clown

Is Given Ample Opportunities for
Talents in "The Devil's Pipe-
line" At the Port Tuesday
Furnishing comedy high-spots in
an action-filled drama, Andy De-
vine comes to the Port theater on
Tuesday, co-starring with Richard
Arlen is "The Devil's Pipeline."
Said to be afforded ample oppor-
tunities for his versatile comic
talents, Andy appears in the role
of an oil expert who, with his pal,
Arlen, is ordered to his company's
East Indian headquarters to un-
cover suspected intrigue.
Noted for his ability to inject
impromptu gags into his roles, De-
vine was reportedly in rare form
during production of "The Devil's
Pipeline." In one sequence he re-
fers to a stubborn streak in his
family. During filming of the
scene, Andy took everyone by sur-
prise by finishing his script lines
aid launching into a 'humorous
story about his stubborn uncle.
The story proved so effective, the
director ordered it into the script.
The death rate from automobile
accidents in 1939 as compared with
1929 was 3 per cent lower on the
basis of population, 9 per cent
lower on the basis of number of
ears in use, and 30 per cent lower
on the basis of motor vehicle
mileage.
