Ball To Be 'Given
New Years Night
By HILDA WAY GWYN
Christmas is almost here in the time worn phraseology the
saddest sweetest time of the year Yet true to-day as it was
when first written It is a time of entertainment and of family
reunion a time when one remembers how old one is how quick
ly time is beginning to pass and the vacant places at the family
table seem more vacant at Christmas we find ourselves thinking
back last Christmas and the year before.

And yet to the tender world of childhood Christmas is a mil
lion miles away but as we grow older time's circle moves more
rapidly and Christmas will follow Christmas almost too fast to
keep pace with our pocket books One writer has said that "th3
mere space of yesterday is between the young heart that yearned
for the filled stocking and the old feeble heart that may never
throb another Christmas Day."
