During the Christmas season, as
at no other time of the year, there
is an undefinable spirit which is
hanging over all. We can not see it
and we can not feel it, yet we know
it is there.
Christmas is the announcement of
a birth not made in public prints, by
proclamation, or even in writing at
the time of its occurrence. It was
many years after before it was put
into present form.

mas: “’Tis the season for
OVER $5,300,000 IN WHEAT
CHECKS COMING TO TEXAS
College Station, Texas.—More than
$5,300,000 in benefit payments to
13,000 Texas wheat fanners who
have agreed to reduce acreage will
come to Texas this winter and early
next summer, John R. Edmonds, in
charge of field work for the wheat
campaign, estimates. Bulk of the
contracts have been rieviewed by
Amarillo and Fort Worth boards and
are in Washington.
First checks of the $3,684,079 in
the first payments to be received in
Texas came this week to Wheeler

about $1,289,529, coming after June
1st when inspections have been made

ties in the Panhandle will receive a
total of approximately $5,039,165 of
which $3,859,443 should ! be received
this winter. Forty-six counties in
other areas of the State will (receive
about $324,636 in the first payments.
championship prospects by carrying
off the tournament at Morgan last
Saturday. A basketball was to be
awarded to the winner but Clifton
failed to get it for some unknown
feason. The Clifton basketball team
looks strong enough this year to
breeze through for county honors al-
though they may hit some snags.
The boys are developing a strong
volley ball team and it seems this
sport is very popular. This would be
a good game for the County MeetJ if
other schools could work up boys’
This column started witih eats and
it shall end with eats. Mr. O. E. Pier-
son entertained the football boys for
their Valley Mills victory Thanksgiv-

day night. The boys wish to take the
opportunity to thank the kind pa-
trons who kept them from being hun-

In a few years, we believe a good
“banquet team” could be developed.
However, there will be a serious let-
down next year because of the ab-
sence of “Sugk” Spangle and his din-
ner table Cubs. —Grimland.
We celebrate Christmas as the day
of Christ’s birth, who came to this
world to offer salvation to all who
would but believe on Him and serve
Him according to the precepts of the
Bible. Wher/ our loved ones pass
away w^j-tfre comforted because of
Him. Through Him we have the hap-
py prospect of life after death.
Every year we look forward to the
Christmas holidays with joyful
hearts. It is a season of good cheer,
giving, and thanksgiving. Our
thoughts on that day should be in
holy reverence of Him who came and
gave us freedom from a sin-filled
world. J. p.
Tuesday night the football boys
had their “Mysterio” show. It was
really good. While we could see in-
to a few things, there were many and
the most of them that we could’nt
figure out at all; especially when the
woman disappeared at the shot of a
We now have four volley ball
courts, the boys playing on two and
the girls on two. The boys’ teams
have started several series with the
girls’ teams. The boys really can’t
put it over though. At ieast that’s
what the girls think, though they
migh get fooled. »

genial fire of charity in the heart."
But when we think of Christmas,
do we think of the parties and good
times we are planning to have or do
we think of the same days years ago
when Christ was born? Do we think
of the poor, hungry little children
who hardly know what Christmas is,
or do we think only of ourselves and
what our plans are for Christmas?
Christmas should be the time for
everyone to be happy. This year and
in the years to come the people of
the world should try to follow this
motto: “Peace on earth; good will
toward men." F. B.
