Masses of Hot Ashes
Thrown by Volcano
By Associated Press
Tokio, Dec. 26.—Mount Aso, an
active volcano in Kyushu, has been
unusually active of late. Rumblings,
tmall eruptions and showers of
ashes were freqtiently experienced.
A comparatively big eruption oc
curred a few days ago when masses
of ashes fell over the surrounding
The atmosphere above the vol
cano district was a mass of reddish
yellow clouds and the mountains
and fields were mantled with a thick
layer of greyish ash from the crater.
Numerous cattle and horses which j
ate the grass on these fields have j
died through poisoning, says one re- ,
port. - * j
Dr. Imamura, a noted seismologist,
declares that the volcano has just
entered a stage of greatest activity,
but he does not think any great dis
' astrous eruption will occur.

Miss Kthelyn MucCloskey, taking I
the part of an angel, at this part of ;
the pageant appeared on the over- j
head balcony and repeated the Bibli
cal quotation.
"Fear not for behold, I bring to '
you good tidings of great joy, which j
shall be to all people; I
"For unto you is born this day in
the City of David a Saviour, which is
Christ the Lord.;
"And this shall be a sign unto
you; you shall And Him in swaddling
clothes, lying in a manger."
Flood lights again shone forth and j
showed the well-known scene of the ;
birth of Christ, where Joseph and j
Mary are gazing into the manger of '
the humble stable. Elmer E. Ley
acted the part of Joseph and Miss |
Eva Irving, as Mary.
Combined Choruses
Three selections, "Oh Little Town !
Of Bethlehem." "Hark the Herald j
Angels Sing," and "Away in the !
Manger," were sung by the combined i
choruses of several hundred voices
with pleasing effect.
Accompanipd by the singing pf
"We Three Kings of the Orient Are,"
the Three Wise Men of the East were
seen to enter and inspect the con
ents of the manger. The presenta
tion of "Silent Night" marked the
conclusion of the pageant. As the
last strains died away, a brilliant
star, representing the "Star of Beth
lehem" shone forth.
