A new star has flashed across
our horizon. Though ot has not
yet become dazzling in lustre nor
huge in magnitude, still it sends
a golden ray of hope and cheer
into the hearts of many. Scien

G. FI. has always felt the need
of a new.-'writers club, this is the
first of its kind to be organized
at our school. At anyrate. it is
here, and we fervently hope that it
will be long years before its glow
ing radiancy ceases to brighten
its appointed path.
Coming at a time when much
emphasis is placed on athletics,
it will doubtless serve as an oasis
to our literary hopefuls; and may
thev use it as a means toward an
honorable and successful end.
Especially do ye editors of High
Life view this new club with fav

a result of its influence much good
and bountiful material will come
in to fill the school paper. They
are also confident that with this

Probably no place of our worship
for an appreiation of the teachings
of Jesus Christ is more beautiful
than the custom of giving gifts to
our friends on the anniversary of
his birth. It means in the first
place the remembrance of others
and an effort on our part to sub
jugate the ego. There is something
inspiring in the crowds and crowds
of Christmas shoppers pushing their
way through congested streets and
stores looking for just the right
thing for Johnnie or Mary and
willing to suffer all kind of incon
venience and fatigue to be certain
“It is more blessed to give than
to receive” is certainly the permeat
ing thought of Christmas shoppers.
Tliere are the proud fathers and
mothers anticipating the joy of their
children on finding that old Santa
has remembered them on Christmas
morning. There are the children
themselves, doing Christmas shop
ping for the first time and plan
ning, comparing and arguing with
themselves what they can get for
each little friend. There are rich
and poor, all trying to show their
friends that they have thought of
But with our thoughts of pur
chasing some material thing to ex
press our love for our fellow hu
mans, we must not forget that
“It is not what we give but what
we share. For the gift without
the gift is bare.” It is the little
thoughtfulness, our love and spirit
that makes the giving of gifts beau
THE WHITE GIFT
There was a strange country;
called Cathay, and the ruler of it
was one Kublai Khan, a mighty
warrior, who, by reason of his I
strong will and mighty sword,,
had made himself ruler of the!
whole land. liis government was
both wise and just, and was ad
ministered to rich and poor alike,
without fear or favor. On the
King's birthday the people ob
served what was called the "White
Teast. Then were the king and
his court ass^nbled in a great
room of the palace which was all
white; the floor of marble and
walls hung with curtains of white
silk. All wore white, and they
offered unto the king white gifts,
to show that their love and loyal
ty were without a stain. The rich
brought to their lord pearls, carv
ings of ivory, white chargers and
costly broidered garments. The
poor presented white pigeons and
handfuls of .rice. Nor did the
king regard one gift above anoth
er, so long as all were white. And
so did they keep the king’s birth
This beautiful story is only a
legend. But the spirit of the
white gift glows, as the Christ
mas season approaches, in every
heart that celebrates the birth of
the Christ-child. Let him who
seeks the true spirit of Christmas
bring to his King stainless gifts,
not only money and goods, but
love—love of duty, love of God.
and love of man. “Nor will the
King regard one above another
so long as all are white.”

THE FIRST CHRISTMAS
Once I lay dreaming.
Of long ago, it seemed;
Of one, our dear Savior,
And this is what I dreamed.
I heard clear voices
Sing in the night so still,
“Glory to God and
To men, peace and good will’
J’hen in a stable
A halo ’round His head,
1 saw a babv
Lying in a manger bed.
Wise men entered, bowed.
Bowed licfore the manger bed
And said, “We’u:! found Him
Of whom we’ve often read.”
And gold, r raiikincense.
And myrrh, gave they to Him;
And many other gifts.
—I had nothing for Him.
And while I thought of this
Sud fart, but ^(;ry true,
I heard a soft voice
That told me what to do.
“The most precious gift,
He has given tc you;
For somebody he’ll die
For you, and others, too.
Give to him your life,
Surrender to Him all.
Give Him your best,
Though it be great or small.”
And so he’s born, the
Sovior, the world to save,
To redeem by blood
And entrence to the grave.
How about your clothes?
