Fund This Year
ROTAN, Nov 22, (Spl.)— Re-
suming a custom that has been
discontinued for the past few
years, the Rotan Volunteer Fire
Department, with the financial
aid of citizens of the town and
area, will again play Santa Claus
to the needy of the town and
community, according to an an-
nouncement from the Fire Chief,
A. B. Parker. This year, accord-
ing to Chief Parker, the needy
cases to be considered will not
be limited to the town proper,
but will include all such cases
within a radius of three miles
of the town.
Chief Parker requests that
names of needy families, or old
people who are in need of as-
sistance, be turned in to him
as soon as possible, so that on
Christmas Eve no one will be
forgotten. Gifts to needy fami-
lies will include both groceries
and toys, and, in some cases,
even articles of clothing.
Since this worthy annual
project is one in which the
whole community has a part,
Chief Parker is calling the pub-
lic's attention to the dozens of
jars placed on counters in every
business house in town, into
which contributions may be
dropped. The jars will be' picked
up by the Department just before
Christmas, and the funds used
for purchase'of needed items of
charity. Checks may also be
dropped into the jars, or mailed
or presented to Chief Parker.
The checks should be made pay-
able to the Fireman's Christmas
