There is no time for tragedy when all the world is young.

The Jason Lee Memorial Metho
dist church will put on its pro
gram of Christmas music a week
early this year on account of the
number of Willamette university
students that are in the choir and
who will be out of the city for
Christmas holidays at the normal
time for presenting this music.
The date scheduled for this pro
gram is this coming Sunday even
ing at 7:30 and will take the en
tire, time of the evening service.
The plan this year is to as nearly
as possible present the wonderful
Christmas story in its wide aspects
rather than centering on the inci
dent of the birth of the Christ
child. Prof. Clark who is choir
director has gone, to considerable
pains to select , the words and
music that would best meet the
larger meaning of the coming of
Christ, and for months' now he
has been working with his musi
cians to make the occasion really
worth while to all who attend.
' The music will be presented In
two parts, and will be composed
of male and female choruses,
choruses of mixed voices, duets,
and solo work. Part One Is group
ed under the title of "The Nar
rative" and is composed of the
following numbers: 'fThe World
in Despair;" "Jehova Promises
Aid;" ."The Annunciation;" "The
Son of The Angels;" ; "The She
pherds;" "The Nativity." Part
Two is grouoed under thp title of
jthe Christmas Message, and. is
composed of the following num
bers: "The Song is Ringing Still;"
"The Star of Bethlehem Was My
Guide;" "Jesus Shines Brigher;"
"Glad .Heralds of Light;" "Give
Praise and Adoration;;" "Messen
gers of Peace;" "Great and
Mighty Sovereign." s, i
To add to the congregations en
joyment of the service the words
printed in leaflet form will be
placed in the hands of all.
