THURSDAY, DECMBER 25, 195 40~E

by WI$S-EY R. RAMSEY
Christmas is here.
And' with Christmas comes the
will to celebrate and the unwill-
ingness to work.
If you haven't, done your Christ-
mas shopping yet, then you had
better get a move on.
We were amused in setting up
the '"Letters To Santa Claus" on
this page. Some of the letters were
in the. children's own writing, and,
obviously, in their own spelling.
The ones we enjoyed most were the
ones in the child's own spelling.
Some of the words they didn't
know how to spell. But, to a man,
they knew how to 'spell "Santa
While we are thinking of Christ-
mas (and who isn't) we must re-

The Moose has been carrying on
this activity for a number of years
with plenty of help from other
civic organizations in the city as
well as a number of individuals.
Governor G. F. Lawrence says
that 'the response to the activity
this year has surpassed any other.
"More food, money and toys have
been turned in than ever before",
he told me "and we certainly ap-
preciate everyone's help."

over $250.00 in money alone to buy

Lawrence said that the needy
families in Gulf County will have

There is nothing, like Christmas
to make people forget their trou-
.bles and be happy.
We overheard a conversation on
the street the other day. One man
said, "Waht have we got to be
happy about this Christmas, the
way the mill has run this year?"
His friend said, "Man, I have lost
S-just as much time as you, but I
haven't missed a meal, I have a
house to live in, and my family is
clothed. Maybe not as well as last
year-but at least we have the
necessities". The other man quick-
ly agreed and'right away he was
happy it waas Christmas too.
Maybe we all could profit by
this little conversation.
We know the best Christmas
present that a man could give to
his family -this year and it would-
n't cost him a cent. It may mean
a little denial in his way of thinking
though. If -all the men in Port St.
Joe would stay sober this Christ-
mas, there will be many happy
families throughout the holiday.
We don't go to extreme of saying
that a person should forego giving
gifts, having a Christmas tree and
the like. But we do firmly believe
-that Christmas should be observed
as the birthday of Christ our sav-
four, and this birthday of all days
should be celebrated in a sober

Florida Tree Yields
by CAROL H. BECK
Botanist, Florida Park Service
Visitors to Hugh Taylor Birch
State Park near Fort Lauderdale
and to Collier-Seminole State Park
on the Tamiami Trail exclaim over
the odd appearance of the gumbo-
limbo trees, never dreaming.- that
they are looking at a close relative

frankincense and myrrh.

High above are the branches
which:in spite of the fact that this
is strictly a tropical tree, -are bare
of leaves in the winter time. The
leaves are pinnately divided in
'much the same way as ,those of the
hickory although the individual
leaflets are differently shaped than
those of the hickory trees.
Flowers, so smal las to be almost
unnoticeable, appear in the spring
before the leaves come on\both the
male and female trees. After the
leaves have dropped, clusters of
red-brown fruits dangle from the
branches of the female trees. The
fruit clusters are about the size
of a man's fist, and the individual
fruits are -about the size of his
finger nail. The seeds, and there
are one or two in each fruit, are
Aside from its odd appearance,
the. interesting thing about the
gumhbo-limbo is that like its rela-
tives the frankincense and myrrh
trees, it bears a naromatic gum
which was used by the American
Indians just as those more fam-
ous gums were in the Holy Land.
When we read of the wise men
giving the gifts .of frankincense
and myrrh to the Christ child, we
think of them as perfumes so rare
as to be really appropriate gifts
for a divine child. They were rare
and expensive because they came
from across the Red Sea in dhows
and were transported across the
Arabian desert on camels for the
use of the Mediterranean peoples,
not only for Incense and perfumes,
but for many other things.
Frankincense and myrrh when
they were burned as incense,
sweetened the air of the temples of
the Old World, while gumbo-limbo
performed the same function on
the altars of the American Indians
from Peru and Venezuela to Mexico
and Florida. Later, the Catholic
church used gumbo-limbo in their
early American missions.
Since the days of antiquity and
even today, many gums were used
cense. What mother today would
refuse a gift of baby powder or oil
for her baby's skin, or something
soothing for his colic? If the Christ
child had been an Inca 'Indian or
an Eztec, his mother would have
accepted gumbo-limbo with just as
great alacrity and for the very
There are amazing similarities
between the civilizations of the
old Egyptians and the Aztecs.
Among these similarities is the
mummifying o fthe dead. Again we
are startled to learn that while the
Egyptians used frankincense and
