a peddler of no mean rank.
Unlike so many he is not trying to
work his way through college to gain
a bit of knowledge for he already
knows all the tricks of his trade and
is making the 1940th world tour of
his life. We all know him; we all
love him; and no one ever shuts the
door in his face.
"He was dressed all in fur from his
head to his foot and his clothes were
all tarnished with ashes and, soot,"
Clement Clarke Moore said of him.
"He had a broad face and a little
round belly that shook when he
laughed like a bowl full of jelly."
You know who?
Assembly has decided to do its bit
to help Santa Claus on his way
around the big time. Those who come
to the informal dance when Bill Saw-
yer will play, are invited to bring small
gifts, if they wish, from the five and
ten, or elsewhere, to give Sir Claus
a helping hand in his great work.
It has been arranged that his pack
be left at the door to the League
Ballroom for the evening.
