is people throughout the land are ex-
tidings of joy. But all is not hap-

wake up Christmas morning and find
house waiting for them. It's a sad
thought, but a true one. Despite all the many wonderful
organizations that work hard to provide a little joy for
the needy, there are still some neglected. Wouldn't it
be wonderful, if on Christmas morning, everyone looked
to his neighbor and made sure there wasn't a sad child

God has given us. Let's do our best to make this a
Christmas they won't forget.
