versity television series, "Under-
standing Our World."
"Christmas is both a holiday
and a holy day; a day of merry-
making, and a day for the wor-
shipful recognition of the coming
of a Savior," Prof. Arthur East-
man of the English department,
the show's narrator, said. This
conflict between the holiday-holy
day aspects will be expressed in
works of art.
Thackery's "Mahogany Tree"
and Irving Berlin's "White Christ-
mas" will illustrate the holiday
aspect of Christmas. The holy day
aspect will be expressed through

Prof. Warner Rice, chairman of
the English department, will read
several passages from Milton's
"Paradise Lost" and discuss Mil-
ton's purpose in writing the poem:
to explain God's ways to man.
Fall of Man
In "Paradise Lost" Milton takes
the fall of man - the story of
Adam and Eve - and connects it
with the fall of the wicked an-
gels as found in the Book of Reve-
lations. This poem relates the
moral and spiritual history of
According to Prof. Rice, Milton
was not only a great poet but also
a strong fighter for liberty and
freedom of the press in seven-
teenth century England. The res-
toration of Charles II forced Mil-
ton from the political arena. It
was then that he began writing
his greatest poetry.
Much of his writing was done
under a great handicap. Milton
always had poor eyesight and in
his latter years was totally blind.
Prof. Rice will use Gustave
