From every epire on Christmas eve.
The Christmas bells ring clearly ont
Their message of good-will and peace
With many a call and silver shout
For faithful hearts the angels' song
Still echoes in the frosty air,
And by the altar low they bow in
adoration and in prayer.
A thousand biassed m spumes throng,
the stars are holy signs to them,
And from the eyes of ev*ry child,
looks forth the Babe of Bethle
hem - - - ? i
But then all others not like these,
whose brows are sad, wbose .
hopes are croas'd, i
To whom the season brings us <
cheer, and life's most gracious
charm is lost.
That they at last may see light, 1
Which shines from Bethlehem, and i
For Christ the treasures of their ?
Richer than spicery or gold. 1
Hope of the ages Thou near - 4
'Til all the earth ahall own Thy
And when Thou reign'd in every %
heart , i
It will indeed be Christmas day. b

CHRISTMAS IS A MERRY DAY c
Christmas is a merry day
In spite of certain things,
Such as misfits in the presents :
That good old Santa brings. :
What if you get a red bath robe, :
When you wanted navy blue. :
Take it with great pleasure
And say I am happy too.
[f some one gets the present
That you had wanted now and then,
Say a very merry Christmas tl
And say it with a grin. 3
Christmas is a time for giving ti
As each and every one believes 1'
For every one should surely know t
That it is better to give than to re- ?
Christmas is a merry day (
If not observed by all f
Of all the seasons in the year ?
None are as pleasant as fall. <
Why should Christmas not be a merry 1
day. % '
To all the people around this way
When Santa comes around I
When the snow is on the ground.
If you get a beautiful present
Addressed in your mother's name
Say what a very merry Christmas
And be merry just the same.
LOIS PARKER, "Sophmore.
A CONTRAST?CHRISTMAS a C.
AND A. D.
It seem*, only fitting at this time
when everyone i? entering into the
holiday eeeaon of Christmas 1922
that we pause for * moment to con
sider the real meaning of Christmas.
Possibly we can do this better if
we think what oqr, world would be
and used to be whan are had no season
like this to commemorate what most
the world have been those eons ago
with no real spirit of Christmas to
cheer and inspire? The pagan gods
were strong indeed itv eyes of those
old rulers bat always represented to
those who prayed to him?a spirit of
swtfh "vengeance to . the one who
failed to obpy, and much extortion,
homage and living of alms to those
who owned him as absolute ruler.
Who can say what Justice (?) was
meted out to those who descended to ,
the torture chamber; who can say'
what feelings weighed down the poor
victims ot. greed and oppression? i
What were the pleasures of those gay j <
livers who spent time and money, i
bending body and soul to that one end 1
of attaining only the pleasures of i
this Ufa; for to them there was no
after Mfe, all ended in the brief span
allotted man en earth. Why should i
a man strive to do right, to be true 1
hearted, or to consider every man his i
neighbor?unless he really wanted i
to? Did man own nay feeling at i
body than himself 7
Did he ever stay his hand in in
flicting punishment Did he ever
show others a real feeling of brother
hood? No, truly the motto which
lived in all hearts was "eat drink and
be merry for tomorrow ye die."
In contrast to this what are the 1
thoughts and impulses swaying the
hearts of all Christians of 19227 Doee
he pray to ? God of vengeance only?
Is he punished unmercifully? Is he
thrown into- the. dungeon cell? Is he
oppressed and weighed"down with a
burden of taxes? Perhaps, in a few
instances, we may say yes, but in
most instances to us of the Christian
world, the spirit of truth, love and
justice are ever reigning on high.
Our God is a compassionate father '
ever ready to pardon an erring child. >
As a witness of our Christianity 1
we have the hundreds of dollars, the i
rest amount of supplies which hgve
been sent to starving Europe. While
in our own realms we have rescued
the perishing, fed and clothed the |
itarving, responding to all calls from '
i poorer or weaker brother. For us '
he real feeling of brotherhood reigns <
iupreme. f ? *?
So once again lot US' pease in the
ittrry of our day and give a few mom
ents to the consideration of Him who
node all this possible?the One whoss )
drth first represented, the words? c
?eace on earth, good will toward man g
-our greatest teacher and leader? ,
Ihrist. Let us remember if it were f
ot for him we would be living in j
bose days of pagan gods and idols? B

This program was well prepared,
enthusiastic and full of "pep." It re
flected nothing but credit upon our.
society. Every part was well pre
pared but the number which we want |
to call special attention to is the orig

able to predict that this society will
produce a famous poet. The debate
also was very interesting, was a heat
ed discussion and kept the society in
suspense as to who would be victor
ous. The affirmative, however, .won
the decision of the judges.
V This society is waking up, we are
having better programs and giving
more of our time to this important
phase of worth. This program waa
the best that has been given for some
time and might be attributed to the
fact that we have "Christmas in our

In the "Life of Thomas Nelson
Page", by Ben Williams, many facte
concerning the life and character of
this great Southern writer, were re
viewed before the society. The story,
by Mary Sumner entitled, "Marse
Chan" gave a vivid description of
how the darkies and their "old mar
stera", as they were called, lived
many years ago. It helps the society
very much by studying the lives and
works of these great men. The de
bate was also very good, both sides
upholding good argument, but after
the rejoinders were given, the nega
