Men seem never to grow tired
of the story of the humble birth
of our Saviour. It has come down
to us through the centuries, car

peal as it did to the generation
before us. This age old story will

Student Christian Association.
This worship service which wlP
be in tableau form, will be given
in song and scripture. The prop
hecy of Isaiah of the coming of
Christ, the vigil of the angels, and
the adoration of the shepherds and
wise men at the manger will com
pose the tableau. Once more we
may enjoy a panorama of the
scene of an event which has so
influenced the lives of mankind.
STUDENTS GO CAROLING
The Montreat Christmas would
not be complete without the sing
ing of old, well-loved Christmas
carols. As is customary, any and
all of the College girls who choose
to do so, are going caroling on
Sunday night, December 11, af
ter the Christmas pageant at
Gaither Chapel.
The caroling will be done by
two groups of girls who will walk
over the entire Montreat commun
ity to sing to the sick and shut-
ins, or to anyone else who wishes
to listen to the old carols, which
always put the Christmas spirit
into the hearts of men.
Reyes Magos” will be presented in
Spanish by Becky Glenn, Cordie
Hylton, and Lois Leisinger. Mae
Hager will play the part of Herod.
All Spanish students are to take
part in the singing of the Christ

McGregors Enter
Charlotte Hospital
A shadow was cast over our
joy in Christmas festivities
on Thursday evening by the an-
nounlcement that President Mc
Gregor had, on that day, entered
a Charlotte hospital for treat
ment. Mrs. McGregor, in order to
be near Dr. McGregor entered the
hospital to be treated for a chronic
trouble.
It is understood that Dr. Mc
Gregor’s condition, although ser
ious, is not alarming. The general
concern of the community dem
onstrates the deep affection felt
for “Doctor Mac.”
Theme of Christmas Party
Disclosed by Leaders
The Sophomore Christmas party
is going to be one of the biggest,
most exciting, and most interest
ing things on the big list of
Christmas celebrations.
Betty Marshall, Sophomore
Class President, disclosed plans
for it. All the Montreat College
family is going to have a real
home-like Christmas party at the
Foreign Mission Building on Sat
urday, December 10. This will be
the first time any of the college
organizations have used this build
ing for a social affair. For this
party, it will be decorated to give
a “homey” effect. Even the mis
tletoe will be there; and of
course, Santa will put in his ap-
i;earance.
Mother and Father Montreat
wiT be present, with all the col
lege faculty members acting as
aunts and uncles. The Freshmen
will come dressed and acting like
the smallest members of the fam
ily, while the Sophomores will
repre.sent those who are about the
bubble-gum age. The Juniors will
be just old enough to giggle at
everything, and to become intense
ly excited when they spy a nice
looking speciman of the opposite
sex. The Seniors will be those
members of the family who are
very dignified and highly edu
cated, and who often correct the
other “children” for their ghastly
mistakes.
The gifts Santa will present will
be small toys or similar things
which children would enjoy. Af
ter the Montreat children have
enjoyed these toys for awhile
they will be asked to put them in
to Christmas boxes which will be
sent to Lakey Gap and Friendship
churches for use in their Christ
mas activities.
