THE sriRIT OF CHRISTMAS
Christmas Is the day on which the
nativity of the Savior is observed.
People from all over the world have
contributed to tho origination of
Christmas Day, It has becoma a
time when all people in due respect
to Christ are at peace with each
other and extend good will to their
fellow men. Out of the desire for
expression of their cheerfulness and
willingness to help othen, has arisen
the Christmas songs, carols, dramas,
Christmas trees and social fctivals of
the present day.
Preparation for Christmna includes
decoration of homes, business build
ings, and streets. Gifts of cards and
other otken:; of good will are sent to
friends. Little children give strict
attention to their manners and be
havior. Some of the finest sports, of the
year come at this time, such as coast
ing, skating and dancing.
Eagerness to aid the sick and poor
is shown through the purchase of tu
Red Cross Christmas seals and by
visits to those in distress. Various
clubs take charge of Christmas bas
kets to be distributed on Christmas
morning so that every one may en
joy a feast. On Christmas Day th
enjoyment in every hom is complet
ed by a family feast.
Perhaps no writer so well describes
the happiness and philosophy of
Christmas as does Charles Dickens in
the following word: "It is good to
bo children somotimes, and never
better than at Christmas, when its
nn'ghter founder was a child himself."

The two teams lined up on the
stage and the match began. Mrs.

The two teams appeared evenly
matched and at the end everyone
was tense with excitment to see the
outcome when one girl, Eva Linn
of Wapinitia, and Gentvicrc Allea
and Jack Chastain of Maupin were
the only ones remaining standing.
Ruth waiters and Eva Linn were
the last up on their side for some
time. After Ruth went down Eva
spelled alone until the end. Tha
final word, oblige, was misspelled
by Eva and corrected by Genevieve.
Immediately a cheer arose from
Maupin's ranks at the victory. Mr.
Hampton's pupils then grouped and
gave Wapinitia a yell.
Some of tho hard words spelled
were: dependent, attendant, accom

WORK OF KED CROSS
Largest Portion Received From
Slf Remain In 3ui
Maupin seems to be backward in
the sale of Red Cross ChrUtmas
seals. The county committee recent
ly sent to many of our people a
sheet containing 100 seals, with th .
Information that if not kept they
iheuld be returned, and in many
eases their instructions have been
followed and the seals returned to
tht committee. The seals were sent
out direct from county headquarters,
that mode of distribution being
deemed more effective than by put
ting out individual solicitors.
Red Cro s seals are sold to pro
vide a fund with which to administer
the society, to care for thore who
are suffering from the dreaded tu
berculosis, as well as to provide
medical treatment and care for
those little ones whose parents are
too poor to pay for same. Many a
child has been granted a new lease
on life htrough the relief extended
by'the Red Cross, made possible by
the funds collected from seal sales.
Many a home has been brightened
and made cheery thereby.
Of all the jnoney collected by
seal sales all "but five per cent re
mains in tHe rtate where the sales
are made; 60 per cent is approtion
ed the individual counties and 35
v font troes to the state at large.
It is thus easily seen that such
money comes back in the form of
good done the afflicted.
Maupin should not be placed in
ths list of delinquent. There may
be some here who the Red Cross
"ay be called upon to aid; there
may be some who have been
stricken by tuberculosis and whose
cases may he alleviated by the aid
'-s cnl sales. Each
Mauplnite should make himself a
committee of Bne and see to it that
the quota assigned this place Is
sold, thereby putting this community
on a higher plane that would be t

K-O'S FEATURE CARD
AT LAAT LEGION
Floyd and Nick Holloman and Albert
Hachler Put Opponents to
Sleep Many Attend
Saturday night's smoker at Legion
hall was featured by three knock
outs, they being secured by Floyd
and Nick Holloman and Albert
Hachler, each opponent being im
ported for the occasion.
The smoker opened with a bout
between Howard Conley of Tygh and
Dick Delco, Wapinitia. Both boys
showed a willingness to mix and at
the end of four rounds Howard was
given the decision.
Doug Holloman and Jack Mc
Dougal from The Dalles next occu
pied the ring, going four rounds. ,
Doug proved the superior scrapper
and the referee, Johnny Williams,
elevated the Maupin's boy's arm as
token of victory.
Bob Duckworth from Bend proved
er inW his face with such rapidity
and force that when the irrigation
section lad woke up he found himself
posing as the loser, a knock-out hav
ing been adminhtered to him.
The main event, a scrap between
Maupin's pride, Floyd Holloman, and
Knock Out Brown of Prineville, end
ed as usual the Maupin lad con
necting with his opponent's mid-section
at will and crossing to the jaw
with pnuches felt clear to the town
at the end of the spur line. Brown
got his in the second round, going
i l he tmoKer really began with a
bout between the Conley midget and
little Bobby Holloman. The little
fellows mixed like genuine pugs.
Bobby was out reached by Conley,
who was given the decision at the
end of three two minute rounds.
Knock Out Brown lived up to his
monixer, being knocked out again.
He has figured In several fast " en
counters around the lower part of
Eastern Oregon and has always given
a good account of himself. He has
several knock-outs to his credit, but
in Floyd Holloman met a man a little
bit faster and who carries a sleeping
potion in either mit
Albert Hachler showed great im
provement over his last appearance
here He has cca. ed his jumping
around, making wild swing3 and now
leads out with both hands in straight
punches, working fast and deadly.
Dick Dolco's nose was again in
prominence. A little tap on his pro
bocis : tarts the blood running, and
Howard Conley opened up the ruby
itrenm with his first punch.
At the close of the smoker An
nouncer Morris presented "Tod" Mc-
Clasky and Abie Westlund to the au
dience, saying that the latter had Is-
sued a challenge to fight Doug Hollo-
nan at the coming rmoker at The
nalles. Those boys should make up
