CHRISTMAS MAKES FOOLS OF THOSE WHO CLAIM
THAT GOD IS DEAD
On Christmas Day a soldier in Vietnam, dirty with
jungle mud and blood, will team open a letter from home.
For a few moments he will forget his bone-aching fatigue,
remembering boyhood days with his family and the excite?
ment of getting and giving gifts.
The sour-sweat smell of barracks and the dank green
odor of jungle camps will be replaced by the smell of white
sheets on the old bed at home on Christmas Eve, the pung-
ence of Christmas trees and the aroma of food from mother's
kitchen. The illusion will be gone even before the letter is
finished and that soldier will long for peace, more than you
or I who have never lived on a battlefield can evei long for
peace, and he may weep for a meaning that has gone out
of his life.
As long as that soldier feels joy from no more than the
reading of a letter on a battlefield, or has hope expressed
as a longing for peace, or repents through tears for lost
meaning, we know that Go0, is'alive.
NO EGGS FROM DEAD GEESE
.There have'been considerable hurrahs for the mass of
legislation,. tbtotal of 349 public laws, enacted by the 89th
Congress in its first session. But, as a leading Washington,
D. C.,;snewspaper commented, "Little has been heard and not
much will be said about the cost No one has any idea
what dollar sign will have to .be put on these programs as
they come into full bloom in subsequent years."
There's also the question of where all the money will
come from. From taxes, of course-but some of the laws
recently passed or proposed may kill some of the geese that
lay those golden tax eggs. The National Small Business Asso-
ciation, an organization formed by owners of small, private
industries, has pointed out that government has nothing to
"give" in its programs unless it has first "taken" from some-
where. And it can't continue to take from private industries
unless the owners make enough profit to stay in business.
Talk to any small business operator and you will learn
that various taxes and burdensome government regulations
already are squeezing his profits more tightly day by day.
Yet the Administration is committed to legislation to increase
the present minimum wage of $1.25 an hour. Millions of
workers in small firms would be brought under the proposed
law for the first time; but many of them would lose their
jobs instead of gaining an increase in pay.
Take a company of 100 employees now being paid $1.50
an hour, and say the minimum wage is increased to the $2.00
an hour advocated by the powerful AFL-CIO. The employer's
payroll would rise $50 an hour, $400 a day, $2,000 a week,
and $104,000 a year. If the annual profit has averaged only
$50,000, then the company must lay off workers and increase
its prices, provided competition will permit.
The proposed new minimum wage law could easily
trigger bankruptcy or voluntary closing of thousands of small
firms. Thus it would close doors of opportunity for the un-
skilled worker, instead of opening them.
One of the disturbing signs of these times is the readiness
of some supposedly intelligent and responsible persons to
accept and publicize, without question, an accused lawbreak-
.etr*S claim that he was abused by the police. Take the case
'in tason,' Mississippi; last Juine, when several hundred
persons were arrested while picketing the State Legislature,
for parading without permit and refusing to disperse when
so ordered. Agents of the U.S. Justice Department, "civil
rights" attorneys and representatives of national news media
were on hand during arrest and confinement of the demon-
strators. None of them reported any undue force used by
the police. But then a 3-man committee from the National
Council of Churches talked with demonstrator-prisoners for
only two hours (by their own statements), and thereafter
tigated 1,787 such allegations this year. Only 13 were four
to warrant indictments. It is understandable that an ac
caused lawbreaker might in turn accuse the police of mistrea
ing him. But when clergymen, newsmen and public official
promote charges of police brutality without first making su
of the facts, there is reason for the rest of us to question
either their intelligence or their motives.

regions deplored the "police state" situation in the South
which it seemed to represent-all without checking or wait-
ing for proper authorities to check the validity of those
charges against the Jackson police. Meanwhile, the Mayor
of Jackson and Mississippi State officials were demanding a
Federal investigation to clear up the matter.
That investigation was completed many weeks ago, and
not one single charge aganist the Jackson police has been
filed by the Justice Department. But we haven't seen any
banner headlines announcing their exoneration of the NCC
group's accusations. We've heard no apologies or corrections
from any of the commentators or Congressmen who propa-
gated those false stories across the nation. Nor have we seen
any sign that those "clergymen" who made up the NCC com-
mittee have done anything to atone for bearing false witness
against the policemen of that Southern city.
There is a warning note in all this for every community
in the land. While the Southern states and communities have
been the main targets so far, false charges of police brutality
are now being made in other areas, too. The FBI has inves-

Christmas Caroling Is Practice That
Is Almost As Old As Christmas Itself
Christmas caroing is almost as
old as Christmas itself-though not
in the form we know it.
An early historian wrote that in
the Second Century the bishop
of Rome urged his people to sing
"in celebration of our Lord."
Christmas hymns go back to the
Fifth Century, when most of them
were written in Latin.
St. Francis of Assissi is regarded
as the father of caroling as we
know it, according to World Book
Encyclopedia. In 1223, St. Francis
placed a creche (miniature Nativ-
ity scene), in a hermitage in Grec-
After this many churches began
displaying a Nativity scene at
Christmas, and soon the people be-
gan acting out the Christmas story.
The actors composed carols to sing
with their Nativity plays and after
the plays would stroll down the
street, singing. In that way,'street
caroling was born.
Joheph Mohr ,a pastor in Obern-
dorf, Austria, composed "Stille
Nacht," or "Silent Night," on
Christmas Eve, 1818. Franz Grube,
the local schoolmaster and organ-
ist, composed the munic the same
day, and the hymn was sung for
the first time at Midnight Mass
SCharles Wesley, brother of John
Wesley, wrote, "Hark, The Herald

wrote "O Little Town of Bethle-
hem" in 1868 after visiting Bethle-
Though not a carpl, Handel's no-
ble "Messiah" is a Christmas tra-
dition. It first was performed in
Dublin in 1742. "Joy to the World,"
written in the early 18th Century
by Isaac Watts, was set to the
music of a segment of the "Mes-
siah." "While Shepherds Watched
Their Flocks by Night," written in
1703 by Nahun Ttate, was set to
music taken from "Siroe," an opera
No one knows who wrote "The
First Noel." It first appeared in

"Christmas Carols Ancient and
Modern," and is believed to be

So if you should go caroling this
Christmas season, think of other
carolers of years gone by, of the
people of Charles Dickens' time in
their beaver hats and cutaway
coats, of English villagers in hose
and jerkin, of good St. Francis,
and of the priests of the time of
the Christian Roman Empire who,
before caroling as we know it ex-
isted, sang "in celebration of our

our God." This is the same mes-
sage used by John the Baptist,
when he proclaimed the coming of
our Lord Jesus Christ. Last but
not least in Zechariah, chapter
twelve, we read of the LORD (JE-
HOVAH) talking to the people of
Israel about the things he will do
in the coming days; declaring in
verse 10, that they shall look upon
him (JEHOVAH) whom they have
To anyone, with an honest de-
sire to know the truth, I say, search

The "Messiah" oratorio, a Christ-

Everyone will recognize
this word-picture of the
first Christmas. But when
was it, exactly?
St. Matthew tells us that
Jesus was born when Herod
was king of Judea and re-
lates the story of Herod's
plan to kill the Infant King.
He writes that Herod called
for the death of all boys
"from two years old and
under, according to the time
which he had diligently in-
quired of the Wise Men."
They had told Herod of
seeing the Star of Bethle-
hem two years before the
tyrant had ordered the

Scholars have established
that Herod reigned from 37
B.C. until his death in 4
B.C. Since we know that
Herod died in 4 B.C., Jesus
must have been born at
least two years earlier.
The great German astron-
omer, John Kepler, sug-
gested that Christ had been
born in 7 B.C., during a con-
junction of the planets
Mars, Jupiter and Saturn.
However, it has been learn-
ed that Mars, Jupiter and
Saturn could not have been
bright enough to be visible
in 7 B.C.
And yet, 7 B.C. is regarded
by many to have been the
year of Christ's birth. Ac-
cording to the Bible, Christ
was born during one of the
great census takings of the
Roman Empire. In addition,
Rome's history records that
an empire-wide taxation
was begun in 8 B.C. It is not
unlikely that the census and
taxing were held at the

Since Judea was on the
frontier of the Roman Em-
pire, it must have taken the
tax and census takers about
two years to work their way
there. We know that Jesus
was at least two years old
at the time of Herod's death
in 4 B.C. Allowing a year
and a half or two years for
the Roman officials to reach

The Magi Symbolized

In New Testament history
according to Matthew, the
narrative of the three Magi
who followed a star to Beth-
lehem in search of the In-
fant Jesus describes them
simply as three "wise men
from the east" It was not
until the 2nd century, ac-
cording to the Book of
Knowledge, that they were
known as "kings" in a
charming legend that traces
its origin to that time.
The Magi originally rep-
resented the priestly caste
of the ancient Persian Zoro-
astrian religion. As this re-
ligion moved westward, it
came into contact with Bab-
yionian beliefs and prac-
tices and thus derived a
strong interest in astrology
