Increased Holiday Gaiety
Predicted With WSGA Aid
"Only 11 more shopping days
until Christmas." And in cities,
towns, and villages everywhere,
people dash madly to buy gifts
before the December 25 deadline.
To all appearances it seems
that everyone is getting a lot of
fun from it all. But behind the
scenes, there are those who
drudge on. and on with no hope
for a Merry Christmas.
Children who have been in
jured in early life hold little
hope for a real Santa Claus or a
brighter future. Those stricken
with dreaded diseases likewise
know little joy.
One third of the money con
tributed to WSGA's annual
Christmas Fund Drive will be
given to American Women's Hos
pitals, an °organization without
endowment, to help their . child
health and disease prevention
work in our Southern Highlands:
The remainder will be divided
between Mifflin County Chil
dren's Aid Society and Mrs. Het
For this drive, WSGA has set a
goal of 25 cents from each coed.
House of Representatives, Junior
Service Board,, and Freshman
Council members will contact all
coeds for the drive. So far
$59.73 has been collected; last
year's total was $196.25. Every
contribution will help make some
one have a happier Christmas.

We, The Women—
Is There A Sania ?
We Know There Is !
FOR YOU the old gentleman
with the long white beard may
have faded into a myth or been
whisked from his pedestal by an
other gentleman known as "The
Christmas Spirit." Yet millions
of children are already visiting
department store Santa Clauses
and writing letters to the dear old
man at the north pole.
But millions of youngsters are
anxiously gazing into shop win
dows at toys they only dream of
possessing via a trip down the
chimney. They are old enough
to know about Saint Nick, yet are
already beginning to reflect the
disillusionment they see in their
needy parentS and squalid homes.
If ;there is a Santa—and we
know there is—then we'll pin our
hopes for these kids on him. For
Santa is the thousands of unsel
fish people who are planning to
leave turkeys and baskets of
staples on the doorsteps of those
less fortunate than they. He is
the epitome of the yuletide spirit
A few of these youngsters can
be reached through the -Mifflin
County Children's Aid Society,
one of the three groups -which
will receive the proceeds from
WSGA's annual Christmas Drive
now in progress.
WSGA asks you for only 25
cents. Your quarter will make - a
child believe in something fine
and good—the Christmas , Spirit
and old Saint Nick.
