REEVES After completing one of the most successful seasons of any Mountain eer football team the local high school lads have stored their padded pants and shoulder pads to don the light equipment of a basketball squad. The boys have been practicing part of the afternoons and some of the nights in order to he ready for their opening game which has been booked for some date after the Christmas holidays. This year's team will have Bridges and Ross from last season's medicore rive. To these may be added Frank lin, Sease, Ben Bridges, Yount, Leath erwood, and Reeves and the sum of these would not make a good basket ball team with a mathematical wizard 'doing the addition. If Coach Carleton Weatherby can develop a good quin tet from the above material, miracles are still the order of the day. There may be a good high school player in this group. The writer has not seen him. Maybe some will develop as they have in football and the boys can play in a class with Weathei-by's girls' team. From the girls' team some good players were lost, especially will Un derwood, all-western forward, be miss ed. Tate and Gaddis could be used to a splendid advantage. However, in Phillips the high's sixtet will bost of one of the best players to ever per form on the local court. Welch and Winkler should be two good guards. Jo Ann Phillips has returned and is expected to be valuable to the team. Reserves will fill in vacant places and freshmen players, especially Millner of East Waynesville's undefeated team will make it interesting for any old timers. The girls should again have one of the best teams in the state. 'Coach Weatherby has stated that a good - schedule will be played after returning from the holidays, and tour nament games would be played if in vitations were received. Of Library Will Be Given New Years A dance in which the entire commu nity is interested will be given on New Year's Night at the club house of the Seven Club which was recently or, ganized here.

He is heading up the new Hospitali zation plan being inaugurated by the company, which is in the nature of hospital insurance. - Aiid i; L-iiiVi' to pass in theso days, tiiat tlu'iv Wfiit out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the would should be taxed. And th; taxing was lirst made when Cy renins was go erncr ol' Syria. And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, to be taxed with Mary, his espoused wife, being great with child. And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered, and she brought forth her first born son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. And there were in the same country shep herds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their llock by night, and lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them and the glory of the 1ord show'n around about them; and they were sore afraid. The angel said unto them, fear not ; for 1 bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all .people.- For unto you is born this day in the city of David, a Saviour which is Christ, tit' i.itd. And this sh;dl b a sign uafi u; Ye si-pli find the Hiabc wrapped n swaddling clothes lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly hosts praising God and saying, Glory to God on the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. And it came to pass as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us. And they came with haste, and found Mary and Jovseph and the babe lying in a manger and when they had seen it, they made known abroad the sayings which were told them concerning this child. And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shep herds, but Mary kept all these things, and pon dered them in her heart. And the shepherds returned, glorifying and . praising 'God 'for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them Luke 2. : liumrara i T V ?! io u iiity is rrepare as tnnstmas POSTOFFK'E IS 1)()1N(J 1U(J HI SINESS .K 1hik,iN s that t !...-, n-ady to rt'li'brati' . an 4- Postmaster ,1.

A Qlltriisintas iHnaijr (By Rev. Howard V. Lane, Pastor of St. John's Chapel. "And the world was made, fleh dwelt among us," John 1:14. It is the dawn at last, after the long centuries of sin's dark, night. It is consummation, toward which a burdened world, fighing for the rev elation of the sons of God, has wearily dragged its way. All nations are ex pectant, for, not only have the pro phets of the Hebrews in majestic strains spoken of the events of this night, but the sages of the Gentiles have dreamed and spoken of a golden age to be introduced by one yvho is to be born a king of the Jews. In the orient has arisen a star and in the visions of the night a Voice has whispered to three kings that the star is his sign. - ' - ; "For we have seen His star in the East." : Matt. 11:2. The children f Israel are groaning under the iron heel of Rome, The heathen taunt them, saying: "Where is now y -,;r mighty God and where is His l)ea.t ed power?" Some answer n it. a v.

They are both of royal . Idood, but there is little renown fo- a descend ant of David in such evil days This carpenter and his wife are very poor in, the wealth, of this world, out they are richly endowed with . heavenly graces. Joseph, the just man, trudges along beside the a.s On which rides Mary, his wife. The toad is rough and the way has been long, but Joseph does not complain. He is in medi tation. Will room for them to lodge be found in the town. His wife occa sionally cast a glance in his direction. realizing that her hour is almost come, is 'anxious lest they should not reach the town in time- Now they have come into the town and are before the inn- In the court yard there are several caravans just settling for the night. The innkeeper comes out as they halt before the door. "We have no room," he says, making a gesture toward the cara vans, Joseph turns away and trudges on, leading the ass. His wife scarcely looks up. Her eyes are downcast and her hood of blue shad ows her face- The night is coming on apace, and they must find some place for shelter. They take their way from door, to -door, stopping at what Joseph thinks are the most likely places; but one and all return the same answer. We have no room." T'l-o many have arrived before them on the same mission and Bethlehem is full. . There is nothing to do but to go on. - Happily, they find a stable whie.) i CHRISTMAS TREE AT TANNERY SUNDAY The Kngland-Waltun Company will celebrate Christmas by having a large tree on the lawn of -the Tannery at six o'clock on Sunday afternoon for the children of the employees of the company- The tree is a towering hemlock more than forty feet in height- It is lighted by more than 100 large size delectric bulUs, and wilt be a glitter with countless ornaments.
