Christ k The Indispensable IMeaning Of Christmas eral years ago, while I was ding the University of New o, my roommate told me "word-suggestion test" that lad taken ill his psychology I. The professor had instruct- :he 35 students in the class 'ite the word, "Christmas", then immediately after that to write the first word or lse that flashed into their s regarding that particular When the papers were col- <(l such words as "tree", "hol- L"raistletoe", "presents .... tur- 4[', "holiday .... carols", and *':ta Claus" were found, but |.0he had written the ,phrase, fthday of Jesus Christ'. Cannot recall ho,v many pea- lhave asked me during my irae, "For what does the "X" as stand?" My answer has |lYs been the same, "It stands ||O.hrist!" To many people, the |ln Xmas does not. stand for [.]lt, but for a great number I i i |thilgs that have nothing to do ::tsoever with Jesus. To some, ]['"X" in Xmas means X-as- t', ton and X-haustion duc to | Commerciaiism and rush of Season. To others, it means nge, X-pense X-hibition, X- :faent, and X-cess, and the like; .|-0f Which are found at this of the year, but all of whmh i. nothing to do with the In- Viable Meaning of Christmas. that is the real meaning of Strnas, after all?

Saul of Tarsus tarried before Him and emerged as Paul first century scholar and missionary-evangelist who pub- lished the most wonderful tidings of time and eternity, "Christ Je- sus came into the world to save sinners." He. who preached the greatest sermons ever uttered, did not come into this world primarily to preach. He, who gave sight to the blind, earing to the deaf, and speech to the dumb, did not come into the world primarily to heal. He, whose high ideals and principles radiated from His sin- less heart and flawless life, did not come into the world primarily to establish an example for char- acter. He. whose loyalty in life and courage in death will forever be incomparable, did not come into the world primarily to teach l men to live honestly and to die I bravely. As a preacher. Christ ex- celled: as a teachtlr. He predomi- nated; as a philosopher, He was unequalled; as a man He was un- surpassed; yet His prime glory lies in norm of these virtues. The true purpose of the incarnation and the true meaning of Christ- mas is lost if we stop here. What. then, is the Indispensable Meaning of Christmas? Accord- ing to the New Testament. it means at least four things. First of all, Christmas means that: "Christ Came Into The "World To Reveal the Father". The Lord's own statement of truth in this regard is found in the Gospel of John, chapter 14, verse 9: " . . . he that hath seen Me hath seen the Father!"

PRESENTATION to Van Was made by locky Hem- The Shelton City Commission approved  revised six-year street program and a revised arterial street system when it met Tues- day. The revisions were made . to comply with a state regulation that the arterial program must'[ be reviewed every two years. I City Engineer Pat Byrne told I the eommissi0} that for the first] time, the six-year street program t included work to be ,done on I streets which are not arterials. The arterial system was revised, I County Stuclies I Building Permit ChangeRequest Tile Mason County Commission Monday delayed actlon one week on olie building permit and wrote the final chapter in another. On a motion by Commissioner Jolm Bariekman, the commission voted to hold up approval of a change in the location of a build- ing permit for Freu Thibodeau for a drive-in theater. The original building permit was approved in Augalst for a site near the Shelton Airport, but. the deal for the property did not ma- terialize so the location was 'changed to near Lynch Road off Highway 101 south of Shelton. Thibodeau asked the, assessor for a change in location of the thea- ter. BARIEKMAN SAID he wanted to check with residents in the neighborhood of the new location to see if they had any objections before approving the new permit. The commission closed out the application for a building permit from "W. A. Nora-is. which denied by the commission and later was supported by the Superior Court. The commission voted to refund Norris' $1 building permit fee which he paid at the time. of the applieation. TlVe, eomniissidn set 11 tan; Jab. 13 for a hearing on vacation Of some tlnoDeld treets in Union. Thev a iPlfi)ved tile vacation of a. portion of unused county road in the Allyn area which had been requested by F. E. Hewson. Budget transfers for the Juv- enile Probation officer and Asses- sor were approved. Contracts for gasoline to the Tidewater Oil Co., to the Gott Oil Co. for diesel fuel and to Metz's Tirecap for tire smwice for the county during 1964 were ap- proved by the eommissmn. Bids had been opened last week and turned over to the county engin- eer for study. He recommended the contract awards which were made. The commission appointed Sheriff D. S. (Sam) Clark and Cal Hopper. Shelton General Hos- pital administrator, to the Civil Defense Coordinating Committee on the recommendation of Harry Cole, civil defense director. he said, to make it more work- able. The previous arterial system had included in it all streets Iwhich were to have tile right-of- lway, and that it did not follow the purpose of an arterial street system. In the new system, he said, it is possible for almost anyone in the city to get to an m'terial street within three blocks of their home. The purpose of an arterial, he said. is to collect traffic from au area and allow IT, to move smooth- ly. SOME OF TIlE streets which are esignated arterials, Byrne said, are not even onened now, but, are so designated because when the areas through whicl they run are opened up, they will fit into the overall program. Streets in the new arterial sys- tem are the Olympic Highway from city limits to city limits; K Street from the Olympic Highway Lo the East City Limits; E. Street from N. 13th Street to the ceme- teries; B Street and N. lath Streets from the Olympic IIigh- way to E. Street: San Joaqmn StTeet from First Sreet to Ot- ter Street; Otter Street fi'om Ban Joaquin to Chestnut Streets; Pine Street from First Street to the East City limits; Fairmont Ave, from tile Olym- pic Highway to the East City lim- its; Front Street from Kneeland Street to Pine Street; Seventh St. from Laurel to Ravenna Street; Ravenna Street from Seventh to 10th Streets (alternate, Highland Drive from Seventh to 10the;. Tenth Street from Thomas o Arcadia (yet to be extended to 10th}; Pioneer Vtay from Harvard to Arcadia: Euetid and Delewacc Streets from 10t?f Street to Pim- eer Way; Arcadia. Street from 10th Street to the Olympic High- way; Lske Blvd. from the city limits to Pioneer Way; Turner Street from the Olympic Highway to 16th Street: l;ailroad Avellue from Front Street to the west city limits and North Cliff road from Alder to the north city lim- its. VOIIK PLANNED nnder the eix-year street program includes for 1964. feasibility studies on San Joaquin Street from First to Otter Streets and Otter Street from San Joaquin to Chestnut Streets. Neither of these streets are now in existanee, and the studfes will be to determine if this would be a better route up to Capitol Hill to eliminate stone of .the sharp curve in the present road, Byrne said. Also plammcl for 1964 program is blaektoppng of K Street from the Olym- pic Highway to the East city lim- its. Proposed expenditures would be $11.450 for the three projects. Proposed work for 1965 includes widening. Pioneer Way to 34 feet and the installation of an as- phalt gutter on the street at the cost of $36,110. Also planned as a special project in 1965 i the improvement of Birch Street from First to Third Streets. Byrne said this was included because it. is a street heavily used by school bus- se. In the program for 1966 is the improvement: of Seventh Street (Continued on page 3) Christmas Fund *0000 Short Of Goal, Five Days To Go DUES DONATEDWith hearts as big as all out- ten cents a week, so the contribution from the 29 doors, members of Girl Scout Troop 320 hiked members amounted to $2.90.
