May everybody at your house get this message from

Christmas time, when we make others happy with nice

We want you to be happy and we are sending yon

Merry Heart-throb of the Yuletide Season.
And here assure you that you have helped in the

of no better time to give expression of our appreciation
than here at Christmas Time.

NEW BOOKS FOR CLAUDE LI-
For the week of Dec. 22 to Dec.
Anna and The King of Siam
by Margaret Landon.
A true story of an Oriental
court in all its splendor, evil and
comedy—throne and dungeon, har-
em and pageant, Concubine and
Amazon. Based on authentic Si-
amese records and private letters
written by a woman who taught
the king's wives and slaves.
Fighting Planes of the World
by Major Law. We are necessarily
air-minded today. Young and old
should be familiar with the planes
that are playing such a large
part in the destiny of the world.
THROW AWAY OLD MEDICINE
There are many persons who
naturally hoard anything and e-
verything including old clothes,
boxes, and other useless articles,
some of which constitute no great-
er danger than a possible file
hazard, but a very real dangei
is present when this tendency is
applied to hoarding old medicine
in any form, says Dr. Cox of
State Health Dept.
Most medicine finds itself into
the home through a doctor's pre-
scribing it for some specific ill-
ness. For the lake of safety, left-
over medicines should be destroy-
ed immediately when they have
fulfilled their purpose and never
be stored in the medicine cabinet
for future unprescribed use in
case of another illness.
