SANTA CLAUS, Ind., Dec. 15. - OP)
- A child's dream of what Santa
Claus' home looks like is becoming a
reality here in southern Indiana.
Woirkshops, where toys will be
made, an Eskimo village, a paradise
island, a wishing well and a lake,
on the banks of which reindeer will
be free to roam, are being constructed
on a 32-acre plot.

Thus differences aside from magni-
tude between projects on varying
scales can be determined."

of the opening between basin and

rately the weight of quantities of
water in the channel, its size is
being held within strict limits.
Nevertheless, the arrangement

Just 20 years ago, on Christmas
Day, 1915, young Hall fell at Moosch,
Alsace. He was at that time regis-

In memory of their son, Professor
and Mrs. Hall presented the St. An-
drew's Church with the bell that is
heard ringing every Sunday. The
presentation of the bell was made in
1927 but the actual commemoration
did not take place until 1929, when
the Rt. Rev. Winnington Ingram,
Bishop of London, on his visit to
Ann Arbor, officially dedicated the
bell to the memory of Richard Ne-
The bell itself is five feet, one-half
inch in diameter, four feet in height,
and weighs 4,564 pounds. It was cast

stated that the bell can be both rung
