The snow had been falling since
dawn and as the deepening shad
ows gathered, the snow still blind
ed the weary teacher’s way, as he
plodded up the lonely mountain
pass. A dim light shown in a
distant cabin. Within, an old man
sat gazing at a burning log.
The traveler made his way up the
snow-hidden path and tapped at the j
cabin door. Aroused by the sound,;
the old man stumbled to the door. ;
Before him stood the half-stooped j
man burdened down by a bundle, j
“Come in,” was the sharp wel- I
The old man led the traveler to
the fire and combed his white beard
with his fingers as he watched
the traveler deposit his burden. The

ragged quilts. Her blue eyes,
though sad, brightened with the
glow of the fire. Her face looked

and of his failure to reach the
near-by mining camp where he was
The old man sat still gazing into
the fire, unmoved by the story.
Hardships among the miners were
frequent and their trebles did not
disturb his isolated life.
The room suddenly became quiet

recall the time when he had placed
it on the dear little white hands.

A shadow came over the father’s
face. “My litle darling, Santie

Santie went everywhere and would
bring what little children ask.
Won’t he bring me just a ring,
swer the simple prayer, his heart
opened. He determined to make
that prayer come true. He put
the ring back into the box and
dropped it into the tiny stocking—
A few other trinkets he took from
his trunk and put into the stocking
and went back to bed.
At daybreak little Susan reached
for her stockings which were filled
with pretty things. Her happy
little face and sparkling eyes
beamed as she cried, “Papa, God
did answer my prayers!”

The father remembered the ring
he had promised before he lost his
job. He searced his mind for an
excuse to give her.
“If I pray. God will tell Santie
where 1 am, won’t he?” her eyes
lightening up. “Mamma said God
would answer our prayers.”
The old man glanced up, and
then looked back into the fire. A
tear came into ,each eye—the first
tears since he looked into the white
casket of his young bride.
He immediately arose and busied
himself with preparing a place on
the floor for the trevelers to sleep.
He watched the little girl as she
hung her two stockings near the
fire-pla -e and knelt beside a chair.
He blew out the light and crept
into bed. A prayer came to his
ers: “Dear God, papa says Santie
don’t come up here in the snow.
Please tell him to come this once
and bring me a ring. Mamma said
you would answer my prayer, be
fore you look her to heaven. Please
noAv dear Lord, don’t forget me.
For Jesus sake, Amen.
W%en she had finished the old
jnan was actually crying. He arose
quietly and making sure both father
and child were asleep, slipped to
the trunk in the corner. From the
Ijottom he drew out a little box tied
securely with a string. His old
hands trembled as he awkwardly
opened the box which had been
closed since his bride had died so
long ago. He held the ring between
DEBATING CLUB MEETS
The regular bi-monthly meet
ing of the ebating Club was held
on Teusclay night, December 5th,
at the high school. The presi
dent of the club, Charles Lips
comb, presided. As there was no
business to be attended to, the
program proceeded . The first
number was a very interesting de
bate on the query, “Resolved, that
the city limits of Greensboro
should be extended.” The affirm
ative side, composed of Nora Gill
and Virginia McCIamroch, won
over the negative which was up
held by Lois Tucker and Eliza
beth Cartland. The judges were
as folows: Thelma G. Floyd, Wil
liam Neal, and Katherine Greg
Each member was supposed to
have prepared a brief on the
query: “Resolved, that Harding
was right in vetoing the bonus
bill.” Mr. Lefler and Mr. Reaves
gave some points on how to make
the brief. The debates on this
query will be staged next Tues
day night with Gwendolyn Pat
ton and Lucile Boone and Kath
erine Gregory the negative. The
topic of discussion for the next
meeting which will be held Tues
day night, Dec. 12, will be the
Triangular Debate query, “Re
solved, that Congress should pro
vide for the enforcement of the de
cision of the railroad labor board,”
lead by Thelma S, Floyd.
Several new members and vis
itors were present at this meet
OVER THE TEACUPS
One of the most delightful
meetings of the Girls’ Council was
held Wednesday afternoon, Dec.
G, in the high school cafeteria,
from 3:30 to 4:15. Miss Lillian
Killingsworth, dean, presided
over the meeting.
Several problems confronting
the Council were discussed. Hot
chocolate, wafers, and apples were
served. The girls decided to en
tertain the football squad at an
early date. A committee for
drawing up the plans was ap
pointed. After an enjoyable af
ternoon the meeting adjourned.
