FROST .................................. PUBLISHER FREEMAN FROST ............................ EDITOR The GreatestGift Christmas has become known almost the world over as the occasion for the excge of gifts mong family and friends. Evela Jpa.n, a nati in which onl.y two per ceaat of the people confess the Christian faith, has taken over the "American style Christmas" in its outward form. It is considered to be a time for bemuse:s, increased sepnding and business acti4ty. The Ch"a,s activities and pro- grams, whether partipated in by the nation, the commumty, school, church, or home, are the human reaction to the Divine Bterrml Gift. The manner in which we respond to this priceless gift, more valuable than all earthly treaures, indicates the mariner m which we have received it.. While it takes chapters and volumes to relate many events that ,are scarcely worth recordS'g, the Apostle elm gives the ac- cout of the greatest event ever told in a concise verse: (John 1:14) "And the Word became flesh and dwelt ,among us, full of grace nd truth; we have behetd His glory, gk as of the only Son from lhe Father." He then summarizes the purpose of His coming: (John 3:16) "For God so loved the world that He gave His ony Son that who- ever believes in Him should no perish bait have eternal le." This is the Gosl in a nutshell, the "good news" that Love's Grace has been revealed to men. The Gift of Grace  imparted without mer- it ,and without our asking. Flowers artd grass- es do not break foh in the spring from their long winter's sleep in order to call the sun to return ,and give its warmth and light--it is the ,sun that radiates its warmth and light brirging forth the n,ev life and growth. A gift is aaot a wage in paymerlt for SeT- vices rendered or for good works; a gift is given though it may be completely u, nde- served. John expresses it: (I John 4:19) "We love, because He first loved us:." Man's love and giving is in respon, se to the Greatest Gift. Christmas is not a day--it is an event of [astirg imlortance. It is the power of the mysterious Love perfectly realized, cemplete- ly executed, and abeutely affirmed .in. the Greatest Gift. 50 Yea rs Ago 1914 The citizens of Che,e,y have contributed 40 barrels ,of flour and arge qun,tities of meak provisions and groceries to the Belgian relief.

Jessen Soil Conservation Service A wen plarmed and install- ed shelterbelt or windbreak could keep that snow from drifting into unwanted areas. T, rees phnted lon,g the ridge of the hi'.s, will keep the drifts off the steep north slopes. Or, living fences placed a!.ong driveways, aroand build- rags or feedto,ts, will preven,t the snow from blowing in and piling up. A wen established wind- break las been knewn to keep the protected buildin,s 20-30 per cent warmer, thereby cut- ting the fuel bill considerably. Trees can be plan,ted to 3', 5 or 7-row windbreaks far best results. In a 3-ro.w the outside row, on the wind- ward side, s.hould be a Shrub of some kind. The second row, can be oither a medium or a tall tree, arid the laird row s'houM be a conifer. For a 5-rv windbreak, the first vow should be a shrub, he seeond a medium tree, the third ,a tal,1 la'ee, the urth a conifer md ,the lost row should be another laub. A 74,ow shel- terbelt shouM start with a a shrub, net a medkma tree then , a medium r tall tree a aU tree in the 4th ov, two r(nvs of conifers and eaxdir, g with ,a shrub in row seven. The id, ea is to start low to the gvennd against the wind and build up the win&break higher as you go. Also, stag- ger the trees to form a solid livirg fence to buck the wind currents. Sgaeing o the rows a,s well as the distance betwee the trees in the rows, is im- portant. Trees stould be ordered early to aa'e kinds and a,mounts to be delivered in the early spring far 1Manting.
