Some of tbese stationers execute corn- landawners and the Upper Basin missions for private cards running intothousands of dollars residents in total are a small for each order. But the average American man or woman prefers to pick out some whimsical but of verse quaint bit of prose to express his wish that someone has a merry Christmas. Possibly the English take the sending of greeting cards more seriously than Americans do. Perhaps they have a right to since Christmas cards originated in their country. The first Christmas card was designed by J. C. Horsley, a Royal Academician, for Sir Henry Cole in 1846. It repre- sented a Dickensian family group seated about quaffing from large goblets of some dark fluid. Some inkling what the drink was may be deduced from the design on the border. It certainly looks like a grapevine. Probably the most noted American painter to have de- signed a reeting card was Elihu Vedder, who won a prize of $1,000 offered by Louis Prang and Company of Boston, which was the first company in America to manufacture greeting cards, In the early days of Christmas cards the design was the thing. The verses or sentiments appeared later, with the exception of the usual wish for a merry Christmas. Now- adays, those hunting Christmas cards may easily be aston- ished by the number and variety of "Sentinments" as the dealers always refer to them. minorRy. Demands for water are so interwined that you can hardly separate out one county or state and let them vote on one part. Could county advisory committees be elected? Could Commissioners themselves be elected? How would you assure that they were really qualified? Is a Governor really unresponsive to the wishes of a small part of the population of his state? Even though he can- not succeed himself, a Governor often wishes to run agMn later -- for Congress or some other office if not for Governor again, Should the Federal-Interstate Compact idea be dropped?

From the usual sixteen page newspai er, the Spirit of Jeffer- son-Advocate has shown tremedous gax>wth in the past few months to where it now requires from sixteen to twenty-four and more pages to carry the news and advertisements. You will always find the newspaper full of news happenings, and especially so, when it comes publshing local news from all sections of Jefferson County. CorTespondents are on the many spot every day, getting news itert s of kinds as well as photographs, all of which go into making a more new,sy and readable newspaper. The Christmas order you mail to us now will save you a shopping'trip later on, and there no wrapping, mailing, ordeli ery problems to worry about: Then, too. there's a handsome announcement card, signed as you instruct us, that will .be mailed to each person on your gift !ist just ])efore Christmas. Your friends and neighbors will enjoy the Spirit of Jefferson:Advocate 52 times a year. Saturday evening callers of Mr. Harry Ashby and grandson, Bob- by, were Mr. and Mrs. Howard Ashby, Sr of Parkersburg and their son, ~Mr. Howard Aslrby, Jr and children, of Winchester, Va. Mrs. Doris Herndon and two daughters, and Mr. Charlie Brown of Suitland, Md spent Sunday with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. l:ives in minutest detail, destroy- ing all freedom in the Basin. If any language in any Compact leaves such a pbssibflity, it should be deleted, but I am cer- rain that this was not the intent. This Compact is the work of con- cerned men, acting at the request of the Governors of the four states, whose, desire is to protect the people of this Basin from de- struction of their enviroment. And we are, otlrselves, potential agents of that destruction. Such destrt, tion need not be wiflful, Or'even conscious. To cite a ~all example: ever since. I have lived here I have particul- amy eiajoyod "a certain magnifi- cen~ view of the Gap. which I saw each time I d~covd ~o fown.' Noff that viewis blocked ,by a large 'building. So what? That view contributed to my serenity, my mental balance, and my personal envim'ment has ,been degraded ,by its loss. This valley provides an outlet from tension for many people because of its peaceful beauty. When we destroy some portion of it, I wonder if we are not killing the goose that lays the golden egg. In a very real sense, many of us "lift up our eyes unto the hills, from whence coinefh our help". It seems to me that any farmer or homeowner who prese~'es the FRESHMAN CLASS TO HAVE BAKE SALE DEC. 16 The Freshman Class of Charles Town High School will hold a bake ~le Saturday, Dec. 16, at the Furniture World Store on ~[est Washington street in Char- los Town.
