Cliffside, Nov. 30 — Hello Friends. The weather is getting just right for old Santa and we think maybe there will be a big snow so Santa can travel with his sleigh and reindeer. We don’t like the idea of Santa traveling in the modern style of airplane. We still like to believe that Santa comes down the chimney and fills our stockings to the top. Remember to do your Christmas shopping early. (The snow came next day after this was written. A fine prophecy—Ed.)
