Youthful Yoked Frock
For Teen-Aged Misses
Christmas is a time of joy among
men of good will—and the busy sea
son for Christmas racketeers. Ev
ery year millions of innocent and
careless people are duped by these
meanest of crooks.
Christmas racketeers take ad
vantage of people’s normal tenden
cy to be charitable during the
Christmas season. These fakers
often fool the public by imitating
famous charities or religious insti
tutions. A few years ago groups of
men and women appeared on the
streets of several cities in blue uni
forms trimmed with red. They used
the word "Army” in their name,
and at first glance appeared to be
members of the Salvation Army.
With tambourines in hand, they
went up and down residential streets
soliciting at Christmas time. They
took in a lot of money, for them
selves. Not a penny of this money
helped bring a merry Christmas to
a needy one.
Using such ruses, it is estimated
that Christmas racketeers annual
ly rake in over $100,000,000 during
the Christmas season.
To avoid being "taken in” by
Christmas racketeers, make the
bulk of your contributions to es
tablished agencies, such as the Red
Cross, Community Chest, church-
' supervised charities and local insti
tutions which have proved merit
Poor Soil Drainage
Is Serious Symptom
Too Few Legumes May
Aggravate the Problem
If your once well drained soil is
clogged up, don't put all the blam«
on your drain tile system. The pool
drainage may be due to damaged
soil structure and loss of organic
matter caused by overcropping.
Too many grain crops year aftei
year and too few deep-rooted leg
umes in the rotation have slowed
drainage down to a “walk” on thou
sands of farms. Failure to return
plant nutrients, manure and crop
residues to the soil have aggravated
On such land the cushiony soil
structure has been broken down.
One of the most impressive
Christmas customs in Switzerland
is the “Singing at the Fountain,”
by the Sebastiani Brotherhood in
the picturesque spa town of Rhein
According to the Swiss writer,
Gottlieb Wyss, the custom had its
origin in 1540, when a plague sweep
ing through many lands visited
Rheinfelden. Twelve men formed
a brotherhood in honor of St. Sebas
tian, promising to pray to him to
safeguard their town from further
distress. They also undertook to
nurse those afflicted by the plague
and to bury its victims.
Pestilence in medieval days was
1 ascribed to evil spirits in the wa
ter, and when the Sebastiani Breth
ren make their rounds of seven
fountains on Christmas Eve they
start at the fountain in the “Frosch-
weide” where the plague started in
the sixteenth century. Their song
dates back to the Middle Ages.
For their Christmas Eve singing
the 12 Brethren are dressed in dark
clothes and black silk tophats. As
t the name of Christ is mentioned in
their song, they uncover their

Soil particles are jammed into a
hard, compact mass, instead of clus
tering together in loose granules.
Circulation of air and moisture is
cut off. Water ponds on the surface
instead of soaking in. Roots are up
against a "concrete floor” that stops
them from stretching out for needed
nutrients. Crop yields are low.
For unclogging poorly drained
soils, deep-rooted legumes such as
alfalfa and sweet clover are par
ticularly important. The tap-roots
open up tightly-packed soil and let
I water soak in faster. When well fed
with phosphate and potash the roots
put mineralized organic matter deep
into the subsoil.
The organic matter added by roots
and tops of legumes, manure and
crop residues contains compounds
that stick soil particles together in
clusters. That makes good tilth and
a loose, well-drained soil.
The organic matter helps the soil
hold more water longer. Roots find
it easy to get at moisture and plant
nutrients. Crop yields increase.

Electric and Mechanical Toys
Electric toys should never be
handled with wet hands. If a young
ster has been playing in the rain
or snow, he should put on dry cloth

toys. A heavy mitten worn by a
child when using a play electric
iron or stove will help prevent hand
burns. All electric toys should be

Lasted Many Days
During the Middle Ages people
didn't like short holidays. Any cele
bration that lasted less than a week
just wasn’t worthwhile.
The entire Christmas season, for
example, was celebrated in equal
fervor with that now shown on
Christmas day. In some lands the
celebration lasted from December
24 to January 6 — Twelfth Night—
and in others from December 21 to
Eventually these long celebra
tions got out of hand and became
such wild orgies that the Puritans
forbade the celebration of Christ-
I mas in the year 1644. It was not
until 1678 that Charles II re-estats
