I have been 0 you’d do this for ir Paragraphics To each and every one of you, the staff of the Full Moon wishes a very merry Christmas and a hap py New Year. Have you seen the new Venetian blinds in the offices? If not, peep in as you go by today and notice the improvements they have made. Be careful about shooting fire works this year, students. So many accidents that are avoidable occur during the holiday season because of the carelessness of young people in their merry-mak- ing. After all, isn’t Christmas an inappropriate time to shoot fire crackers? Why not wait until Fourth of July for this type of cele bration? The Spirit of Giving “Not what we give but what we share. For the gift without the giver is bare. Who gives himself with his alms feeds three, Himself, his hungering neighbor, and Me.” That is the message that Christ gave to the poor man who shared his last piece of bread with a fel- low-sufferer. He had searched the world over for the Spirit of Christ and found it at last when he had performed this deed of kindness. This could be applied to the ap proaching holidays. Christmas, the most joyous season of the year, is the time when we should all think of those less fortunate than we and endeavor to help them some way. Many children will have a bleak Christmas, which cheer and gladness will not enter. Why not look around and find just one child whom you can bring joy to in some way this year? The spirit of Christmas lies ii the familiar quotation, “It is mori blessed to give than to receive.’ It is not always the most expensive gifts that are appreciated the most. Many times it is some insignifi cant present that brings the most joy just because of the spirit in which it is given. Don’t give be cause it is a duty or a habit, but do so because you really want to, for only the gifts we give with a feeling of cheerfulness really mean anything. It has been said that the true test of unselfishness lies in giving to someone else the gift that you want for yourself. But how few of us do that! This Christmas let us be more liberal in our giving. Surely if we can succeed in bringing gladness into just one heart, our own holi days will be much happier. Support the Basketball Teams Let us recall the last football game, the one between Barium and Albemarle. Did you ever see a peppier crowd of boosters? It was undoubtedly the best cheer ing we had during the entire sea son. Why can’t we put that much pep into our yelling at the basket ball games? When the season be gins, come out to all the games and support the teams. Last year, although the girls’ team didn’t win so many games, they worked just as hard as the boys did. The prospects for this year look very bright, for there many freshmen and sophomores for practice, and most of the girls that won letters last year have returned. With Miss Holt as coach and Mr. Hatley assistant, they should have a very success ful season. Since Mr. Canipe can spend ore time than ever before coach ing the boys, they also should be a stronger team this year. Many of last year’s lettermen have turned, and the places of those lost are well filled. Attend all the home games this season, and yell, yell, yell for your teams! Dearest Santa, I’ve got my hair cut so short that Bill doesn’t like it anymore, so you’d better bring me a wig Also bring me a tricycle so that I />on get to school on time. Your old friend, “BUCK” MABRY Dearest Santa Claus, Will you please bring me t real guns this year? The stopper- guns you brought me last year Thoughts on Christmas Holidays No school!—cold crisp morn ings—good old sleep—late break fasts—college friends coming home—that happy excited feeling —parties—starry nights—and eyes -moonlight—glow of open fires en through curtained windows - Christmas-tree lights — holly wreaths — bright-colored lights strung along Main street—smell of cakes baking—mince-meat pies— turkey and cranberry sauce— spicy fruit cakes—^aroma of coffee late at night—crowded stores— bustling and hustling of last-min- ute shoppers—tinsel and red rib bon—rustle of silver and tissue pa per—taste of glue on Red Cross seals—smell of the cedar tree in the living room—red candles— strains of “Silent Night” on radio —solemn stillness of the church when the words, “And there were the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch their flock by night,” are being read—Christmas carols—excited chatter—relatives—crowded bus- es—the tinkle of bells—mysterious looking packages—expectant faces leaning across drug store tables— crowded cars parked at P. D. lunch —picture shows—trips to Char lotte—Santa Claus standing on the street corner surrounded by groups of excited children—bulging stock ings hanging from the mantel Christmas morning—new ties Dear Santa, If it is not too much trouble, will you please pick Badin up and )ve it next door to me? It is hard to get there now-a-days so . can see my Romeo three times a day and after supper until mamma calls bed-time on us. Yours hopefully, “KNOTTSIE” Dear Santa, my pal. Please bring me something to keep the other boys away from Jeanette. I prefer some “Stay- Away Powders” advertised by Ho mer Briar-hopper. If you will do this for me, old man, I will work for you when I get out of school— if I ever do. Yours devotedly, KENNETH MILLER Dear Santa, old boy. When you come around my house, please bring me a pink mustache to play with because I keep my upper lip sore all the time playing with it. Then, too, I expect you had better throw in a couple of scarfs so I can do the scarf dance in chapel. A very good little boy, (Ask Miss Watson) “PRUNIE” DOBY.
