Star of Bethlehem Phenomenon of Age The Star of Bethlehem has been the subject of extensive research and discussion. Modern astronomers have consid ered several natural phenomenon theories without attaching top much weight to any such hypothesis. Skeptics regard the whole thing as mere invention, colored with Oriental imagery, designed to honor Christ; and. faith accepts the star as the supernatural phenomenon which pro claimed the birth of Jeeua. The first chapter of the gospel ac cording to St Matthew,, begins: "The book of the generation of Jesus Christ the son of David, the son of Abraham ..." And confirming Bethlehem as the city of David, the angel of the Lard declared: "For onto you is bom'this day, in the city of David, a SAVIOUR which is CHRIST the Lord." St Luke 2:11.

Christmas ftecs, _ Cribs and Ceppi Christinas trees end cribs, within respective spheres of influence, pro vide focal points for observances of | the tan on Various legends claim to tell the story of the fliut Christmas tree; acridly, evergreen decorations were so closely associated with pagan cele brations that they were banned by many ecclesiastics of the early church. to literature, the fint . tree was set up st Stras bourg, Germany, in 1604; even then, the cry rose agiainst heathen cus toms and, as late as 1851, the Rev. Henry Schwan Was severely criticised for setting up a Christmas tree in his church in Cleveland, Ohio. St Francis of Assist received spec ial permission from the pope to pre sent s tableau of the nativity scene. This first crib, set st Greccio, Italy, in 122S, waa an immediate sensation; the renaissance endowed the cribs with ornate pageantry and, modern ly, the crib is to southern Europe and Catholic countries what the tree is to America and northern lands. Eighteenth century Italians were fond of a fantastic decoration called the Gappo, Pyramidical in construc tion, the Ceppi were made on a framework of lathes with transverse shelves rising to three or four stories, depending on the over-all size of the Ceppo. The whole, thing was covered with colored paper, tufts, tassels, fringes, tiny pine cones, and little flags; a mpnger scene was represented on the lowest shelf, while the upper oms were covered with small gifts, etc.; wax tapers were placed along the sides and a large gilt cone ornament ed the top. Although the original designer probably never saw a Christmas tree, the Ceppo?aided by a little' imagination?bridges the gap between Christmas cribs and trees. PARAMOUNT I THEATRE 1 FARMVILLE, N. C.
