Christmas Queen Is Crowned CPage 1) Volume XLIV Dr. Polhemus To Speak On Christmas Traditions Tonight Nearly all the people in the Western Hemisphere have cele brated a holiday around the lat ter part of December even prior to our present Christmas. On December 18 for the Friday Night Lecture, Dr. Oscar Pol hemus will eliborate on this topic in his talk on "Christmas Traditions and Customs." Dr. Polhemus, professor of po litical science and history at Guilford, will discuss the various customs that come from differ ent countries and also the Chris tian significance that developed from these. Some of the cus toms are well known ones, such as Santa Claus, Christmas cards, carols, seals, and nativity scenes. Others less familiar include Christmas foods, Christmas greens, and particular celebra tions. There will also be certain interesting stories concerning the Christmas spirit.
