may not be so different from

The celebration of, Chnstjrias in
the cities I also fear has become
too much commercialized. There
is too much done to stimulate trade,
jind the continuous playing of the
great old Christinas carols three
weeks before hand is to be regret

of anticipation of hearing at mid
night on Christmas Eve, "Joy to the
world, the Lord Has Come; Lot

NEW YOItK (API After 20
long years it finally happened
Arthur Wagner, a ship's steward,
finally got an answer to the bottled
notes he's been tossing into the
ocean these many years.
He's been using one-ballon bot
tles for the notes which ask the
finder to write him or Sam Finkel
stein, another steward. When the
Constitution docked recently in
New York, Finkclstein received a
letter from one Donato Gigianto of
Marsala, Italy, which said:
"My dear Sam: I've found it,
your bottle with this message in it
where you wrote to get it back and
I m doing It as you sed. Well, I've
founded it at the seaside. I should
like to know why you did it be
cause I never found it anything,
but this I think it must be some-
thing very jmportant."
