irgood friend, Santa Claus, is a busy man
these days. We wonder how many clerks he
must have to help,him pet his toys and gifts ar­
ranged for the boys and girls who want them.
Every day his mailbags are filled to overflowing
aicTthe letters keep pouring in.
From Ashland go "countless missives each
winging a plea to Santa Claus for something dear
to a child’s heart. How earnestly the old man
strives to make his supply go around! How hard
he works to bring happiness and good cheer to
youthful souls!
The reading public is privileged to read many
of the letters sent to Santa Claus through the
ress. Whoever can do so without a tug on the
eartetrings and a great desire to be Santa’s as­
sistant in an endeavor to reach all of tender age
is a man tougher than we estimate.
The editor of The Register has read many let­
ters to Santa Claus. He is struck by the childish
faith, the innocence of complete frankness and
the ever reverberation of “don’t forget the oth­
er children” and “remember the poor children.”
In the midst of their delightful anticipation of
Santa’s visit and keenly alert to inform him of
their desires the childish heart pauses to add a
line, to hope that happiness may be spread to
many, and that others may share the delightful
friendship of the gift-giving visitor from the
Can a little child go much further in leading
men, Is it strange that it is written that unless we
become as one of these we cannot enter the king­
dom of Heaven. Surely the grown-ups of Ashland
will help to answer the prayer of countless chil­
dren and make this community a happy place for
every little boy and girl on Christmas dav.
In the process of building Ashland there is use
of course for money and plenty of it, but the
rowth and progress of a community does not
epend upon the presence of rich men, who are
willing to gamble everything on their faith in a
We have, among our citizens, hundreds of in­
dividuals of small means when one considers
the millionaires of the land. These people are
the ones who will make or break Ashland. Until
they are willing to sacrifice and to invest some
of their money in the future of their native home
the ones who are better able to spend will not do
W hat is necessary before these people of
moderate means feel the urge of city growth, be
fore they will be willing to strain a financial
budget in order to provide contributions to
worthy projects? It is simply morale, a feeling
that by cooperating together great good can be
The readers of this article have heard of the
marvellous prosperity of towns and cities. In
each case they heard of the community spirit
that puts things over. This is nothing but the re-
lization that cooperation spells success, that
any place can grow and prosper if the people
who live in it get together, stay together and
work to a common goal.
This is all that is needed in Ashland and while
we have something like good humor prevalent
in our midst there must be a more positive con
viction. We must undertake some definite, sin­
gle achievement that will positively demonstrate
the power of joint action.
Those who are pleas *d to criticise the public
schools should consider the report made after a
survey by a professor, at an eastern university,
which concludes that public schools should con­
sider the report made after a survey by a profes­
sor, at an easter nurtiversity, which concludes
and in self-support, the report shows the public
that public school graduates rank ahead of those
of private schools in nearly every way.
In college grades, in percentage to graduate
in intelligence tests, in number of resignations
school men well in the lead, stating also that the
“percentage of public school men who fail to
complete their course is less than that of private
school men.”
The intelligence test revealed an average per­
centage of 71.25 for public school graduates and
