But they all focus on the main theme of brotherly love. it is the time of the year when good-fellowship, in spite of some commercial overtones, becomes contagious—when friendly, kind thoughs and actions are directed toward our fellow-man. It is a time when voices are heard in song and prayer-*nd the cares of tne world melt away. nu •1ffc us }rZ to €*tend the quality of the Merry Christmas of Christmas Day to the other 364 days in the; ye-p-by looking for positive ways to further the well-being of all mankind. Merry Christmas - Red Style Once again—for the fourth consecutive year— • _.xs°^alled Germs^ Democratic Republic (Communist) East Germany, is refusing to allow free access ™,West Berlin during the Christmas season. Tiie Wall of Shame" will remain closed and the millon or more captive citizens will be denied the right to visit with their relatives, if any, in the free sector. While it is true that the 'Berlin Wall represents a "defeat" for.the Communist system, this is of-little comfort to those who -are forced to view the hideous structure from the inside. Fortunate are those who over the years have managed to escape despite the erection of the Wall, but we should all pause duting this the happiest season of the, year and pay humble respect to those who have given their hVes to gain their freedom. It is difficult, for we in Aiprica who have known only freedom throughout our lives, to imagine having to risk one's life, leav- i-ig all possessions behind, just to cross a border. Yet, hundreds have done so and died in the attempt. Our prayers should, be with those in the enslaved portion of Berlin, in fact all those behind the Iron and Bamboo Curtains, who lack the ingenuity or the means, or perhaps, the courage to attempt to reach the world beyond the walls and the barbed wire fences. For them there will be only the sounds of : freedom wafting over the barriers. For them the gay season will be only a memory of what once was and may never be again. For them life will continue to be ; servitude for the State. For them Christmas will be ; a day to be carried only in the heart. 'ITie only open ; display will be that which is controlled by the State. So we hang our stockings by the chimney with ; care. We decorate our Christmas treeis. Shoppers will • fill the streets. Cars, filled with loved ones, will tra- : vel the highways on their way to exchange visits and gifts. The office parties will be gay and free- Toasts will be offered . . . but not in the land east of the Wall. Therei you will see some window dressing—but . just enough to arrange for the manufacture of Christ- • mas ornaments for export to the capitalist countries. ' The profits from these pretty trinkets will help to '■ enrich the slavers and strengthen the shackles of the : enslaved. Here, baubles of happiness to adorn our : trees There, more bricks and barbed wire for the ob- ' scene Wall. Draft Estimates Fallible Some young mem eligible for the draft may save : themselves a nasty shock by not relying too heavily on the position of their birth dates in the recent lot- trees. There, more bricks and barbed wire for the ob- tive; Service spokesman's warning that call-ups on the basis of this drawing will vary somewhat from state to state. When the drawing was made, it was officially estimated that most of those- whose birthdates fell in the top third of the list would be drafted next year, with decreasing liability for the rest. Officials said they felt that, on the basis of the expected 250,- 000-men draft in 1970, some of the middle third would also be taken but those in the lower third would not be reached at all. The point now made is that this estimate cannot be depended on because of variance among states. It is noted, for example, that in Michigan the state draft director thinks almost the entire group of men in the . 1A category will be called. That would be extreme: in most states, officials believe, the variance from the norm will not be great. No one is saying that all bets are off—that the assessment of liability made by Selective Service officials at the tim$ of the drawing has no meaning. It is just that there are unknowns which may alter the probabilities in individual states. As- the spokesman "inV Washington; put it, eligible -tien cannot "rely \vith complete certainty on any estimate made at the time of the drawing." Live Nativity At Community Christian The youth fellowship of Community Christian Church will stage a live nativity scene on the lawn of the church from 8 to 10 p.m. on Christmas Eve.

Through the efforts of two church members, Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Moor and 18 women helpers, the 18-foot blue spruce in the sanctuary of Zion United Church of Christ at 415 S. Main St. has taken on special meaning. The tree's name, Chrismon, is a combination of the words "Christ" and "monograms" and is a symbol used by Christians. It is decorated by soma 123 symbols, used since early days to identify Christ. There are 45 different designs which were made from styrofoam patterns made by Mr. Moor. The Chrismons, painted gold and white, include a lamb, descending doves, ohalice, clam shell, five pointed star, fiery chariot and golden scroll of philosophy. There are also red drops of blood on the breast of the pelican of piety. Lighting the tree are 500 tiny bulbs symbolizing Christ, the light of the world. The tree is so appropriate for the season that it may become a tradition at Zion Church, . Board Seeks 15-Acre Applegrove Rd.
