MERRY CHRISTMAS!
Two little words?they've been
said over and over again for genera
tions?bat they still express the spirit
of the season! "Merry Christmas"
to you and yours. Even if you don't
believe in exchanging costly presents
?dont miss the joy of exchanging
those friendly words, and the trifling
remembrances which make them come
true. And so we say, "Merry
Christmas to you."
RARE GIFTS
Who can fail to be filled with awe
at remembrance of the little Nazar
ene, and the Wise Men who found
His birthplace. Nineteen hundred and
thirty-nine years have been recorded
since, yet His remains this world's
most blessed birth.
The gifts the Wise Men brought
to the blessed Babe ? wonderful
though they were?could not compare
to the gifts He gave to mankind.
Jewels of spiritual goodness: rare
love and unselfishness?these are the
treasures beyond price, which He
bequeathed to those who know the
meaning of His word.
LETS BE OLD-FASHIONED
THIS CHRISTMAS
FOR ONE DAY?Christmas Day?
leave your streamlined auto safely in
its heated garage; and hire a horse
and buggy to travel 'round the
countryside, driving through the
snow or sun as the case may be. It
will be a world of fun?and you'll
recapture the spirit of those first
Christmases in America!
Get out and have fun this Christ
mas! Tell your friends to meet you
and go about singing Christmas Car
ols together! Old fashioned. Sure it
is?but this is an old-fashioned
Christmas you have chosen, and youll
enjoy it more if you get right into
the spirit of it?with a song!
Make this a really old fashioned
Christmas?make the frosty air tin
gle with the element of surprise?
Wrap your things-to-give more fes
tively than you've ever attempted
before! Scatter cheer wherever you
go, visiting your friends, writing gay
greetings, calling out across the
street, and saying over the telephone
?"Merry Christmas! An old-fash
ioned Merry Christmas to you all!"
$200,000,000 FOR TOYS
Toy manufacturers estimate that
the people of the United States will
spend more than $200,000,000 on toys
this Christmas.
This is a lot of money but it is
well spent Of course, some children
receive too many toys and other chil
dren receive too few but, in the main,
the joy and happiness that many
children get is worth the price of the
toys.

NO WAR DANGER NOW . i
1940 CAMPAIGN BEGINS I
PARTISANS ARE ACTIVE J
TEXAS TAX IS UPHELD I
PEACE NOT IN SIGHT t
t
Nothing has happened so far in ^
the warfare being waged in Europe .
i to indicate that the United States will
become involved. Not only the senti- I
ment of the people of this country t
but practically every responsible of-/ a
ficial is against participating in the c
struggle. Laying aside the question t
of entering into the war, the discus- t
sion centers upon the effect of war *
upon democratic institutions in this I
country. Unless a witch-hunt de- c
velope against all foreigners, there is s
no reason to suspect that any funda- I
mental liberties of the American peo- t
pie will be affected by the struggle
going on in Europe. If this country
later becomes involved, any surrender t
of democracy will be temporary for i
the period of war. i
c
It might as well be said that the <
presidential campaign of 1940 is al- i
ready underway, regardless of what (
the Parties do about the date of the 1
conventions. Hopeful Republican as- j
pirmnts are taking advantage of op- i
portunities to address "the people "in i
various sections of the country. The t
Democrats are waiting for the Presi- i
dent to make known his intentions, i
The issues are already being formed. i
They include: farm relief, the bud- ]
getary deficit, and the attitude of the
Administration toward business. Gov
^Op ft*
o the opinion of the Supreme Court
ipholding the right of the State of
Texas to extend its taxing power be
rond its borders and other states
vhere no similar tax is in force may
>e expected to follow the Texas ex
imple. The Texas law requires a
jorporation to pay a tax upon its to
al capital in the ratio that gross
?eetipts from its business in Texas
>ears to the company's revenue from
ill sources. The levy is called a
ranchise tax, a payment for the
irivilege of carrying on business in
Texas. The case arose when the
?ord Motor Company paid under pro
est a tax of $7,529, which it con
ended was more than seven times
vhat it should pay. %
The opinion, written by Justice
teed, says there is no question but
hat the State has the power to make
. charge against domestic or foreign
orporations for the opportunity to
ransact intrastate business. This
he Court upholds and says that
vhen the charge is based upon the
troportion of the capital employed,
al culated by the percentage of |
tales which are within the State, no
?revision of the Federal Constitu
ion is violated.
Every now and then rumors spread
hroughout the United States of an
mpending peace in Europe. So far,
tone of them seems to have any basis
ft fact. State Department officials
lo not believe that there has been
mything to them except a desire in
Jerman quarters to spread abroad a
lint that Germany might join in the
ioint front against Russia. Every
Seder of war news should under
hand that dispatches from Europe
ire strictly censored and that little
tews gets out of these countries af
fecting the war, unless the nation in
volved is willing for the story to be
jrinted abroad.
