PAGE 6 i i r I . i i i i i HONORING AN HONORABLE MAN By the very nature of their profession, police officers as a group seldom feel the warmth of public affection. Lester VanCleave, as an individual, is one who did. Few know his first name. To one and all he is warm- ly known simply as "Van". In his duties as a lawman he came in contact with many people during the 21 years he served on the Shelton police force. If he acquired any ene- mies during those two decades plus we have yet to hear of it. This, one would readily grant, is impossible. Yet it seems that Van did accomplish the impossi- ble. Police Chief Paul Hinton hay have touched the reason when he said, in speaking of Van's retire- ment before the Chamber of Commerce last week, "I have never worked with a more honorable man.'" The very fact that the Chamber of Commerce chose to recognize a policeman's retirement is a clear tipoff to the Character of the man. In his 21 years of service on the force he declined promotions because he wished to remain as a patrolman, where he could stay in direct contact with people. His motive was always to keep people out of trouble rather {han to punish them for it. So it was most fitting, last week, that this honorable man was honored upon his retirement from more than two decades of service in law enforcement. , He carries with him into retirement the warm wishes of a community which holds him in the highest respect. ROASTING Each Christmas season, when the goodness of most people glistens most brightly, the badness of a few shows in bleak contrast. Like the people who steal lights off Christmas street decorations, who pilfered the stand for the Salvation Army's coin pot from Evergreen Square  few nights ago, who swip- ed the Christmas tree lr6m Memorial Building which was intended for the enjoyment of the many organizations which use those quarters for their activities. People of this ilk fail completely to feel and understand ...... the spirit in which Christmas decorations are placedl at considerable expense and effort by the people who are striving to project the Christmas spirit of "Good Will Toward Men". It is a type of vandalism--a spiritual mean- esswhich completely defies understanding, and makes one just a bit sick at the stomach when it shows up. The usual rash of stealing Christmas tree lights and ornaments from the exterior decorations around town has gone on again this year, to the bewildermentmbut not sur- prise of those who go to the trouble to put them out. What pleasure or profit can be gained by those who stoop to this low level of meanness is beyond comprehension. Bums of this type make one ashamed of the human race, until he realizes they form such a small portion of the whole. TOASTING Now that we've roastedthe bad guys, here's a toast to some good guys. It isn't just this writer's opinion by a long way, for we've heard it from many sources, but we'd say Christmas street decorations this year surpass any this community has enjoyed for a long time. The downtown business district is quietly at- tractive in this 1963 Yule dress. The Chamber of Commerce, both junior and senior, plus the Rotary Club, which all contributed to the general decorations project, deserve an accolade for a well done job.

Call them failures if you will; call them what you may; but in the heart of every man and woman there is a consciousness of them. We may try to excuse them; we may be ready to argue as to the reason for them; but if we could, we would undo them. EITHER THE GOOD NEWS of Christmas is the most glorious Gospel that man has ever heard, or it is the greatest lie to which man has ever-listened--"He was manifested to take away (list, lift. carry, bury) our sins-" To those who. are in agony concern- ing their sins; who are constant- ly burdened with the conscious- ness of wrongs done in the past and present, a statement like this verse of Scripture is the most cruel word (if it be false) or the kindest word (if it be true) that can ever oe uttered. If it be true that Christ was manifested some- how in order to get beneath my sins and to lift them and bear them away, then this is the one truth for which I have longed more than any other. Whenever and wherever man yields himself to Jesns Christ and trusts Him ah his personal Saviour, his sins are taken away, removed forever. There is a third meaning to Christmas, however. It means that Christ came into the world to destroy the works of the devil. "To this end," John tells us in his first epistle, chapter 3. verse 8, "was the Son of God manifest- ed, that He might destroy the works of the devil." which, ac- cording to the teaching of the Bible. ha been from his begin- ning to destroy life, to decrease light and to degrade love. The Son of God became man in order that He might destroy these works. Men, who realize that in their lives the works of the devil are the thing of strength, need to trust, in the simpleness of child- like faith, this One wtlo was mani- fested long" ago and Who would in them destroy all the works of the devil and set them free. 1.inal - ly, Christ means that: Christ came into the world to make possible his second coming", Hebrews" 9:28 says, "So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for Him shall He appear the second time without sin unto sal- vation." This is the "sure hope of all who have "turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God; and to wait for His Son from heaven. Whom He rais- ed from the dead. even Jesus. which delivered us from the wrath to chine." I Thessalonians 1:9-10. Yes, without doubt Christ-mas _ : i Christ!

Centralia 13 Miller 40. Shelton 24 Blazer basketball buffs had a grand day Tuesday, sweeping three games from visiting Centra- lla Yellowjacket squads in Shel- ton gym. Coach Jerry Knutson's varsity squad, surviving a ragged first half, tightened down the loose nuts and bolts in the second half to run away with a 43-29 decision. Thereafter, Coach Walt Clay- ton's B sqnad earned a 32-15 vic- tory and his 7th graders outlasted the visitors, 25-23, in a tight bat- tle. Heroes of the varsity victory were tall Dave Bayley and stocky Skip Purvis. Bayley'did a big job rebounding and checked his op- ponent to three points while rack- ing up nine himself, his best ef- fort so far. Purvis came on in relief when the Blazers were floundering and trailing in the second quarter, made three steals which set up baskets by ,team- mates, and tossed in five straight field goal attempts on his own as Shelton ran up 15 points in the first four minutes of the third quarter to take the pressure off and allow Coach Knutson to use substitutes liberally the rest of the way. The Blazer press affected 12 turnovers in the second half. Shel- ton hit ]9 of 53 field goal at- tempts, five of nine foul shots while Centralia had 8-for-29 field goals and 13 of 30 free throws. The Blazers committed 23 fouls, Centralia but eight.
