Hearts beat faster, when you wear

For anyone who has younger
sisters, brothers or cousins the
problem of suitable gifts for
Christmas usually presents a seri-
One of the best and most appre-
ciated things to give is a book that
will suit the youngster's particu-
lar taste. According to Miss Sarita
Davis, Librarian at the Universi-
ty Elementary School, "Children
will always love to read the old
classics such as 'Mother Goose
Rhymes," "Fairy Tales," ."Little
Women" and "Treasure Island."
Books such as these will never
grow out of style."
This will be a better Christmas
than ever before because many
out of stock favorites will, b
back at the publishers. New edi-
tions of popular stories are con-
stantly being published with dif-
ferent illustrations. Pictures
play a very important part in
books for youngsters because
they catch and hold the interest
of the reader.
This year over 600 new stories
have been published, the best of
which according to a poll taken
among elementary librarians, is
"Strawberry Girl" by Lois Lenski.
It is written for the age group be-
tween 9 and 12, but the author has
also published many stories for
younger groups. An inexpensive
series for the younger set include
"Little Golden Books" and "Lit-
tle Rainbow Stories." Great favor-
ites are the A. A. Milne tales such
as "Winnie the Pooh" and "Now
We Are Six."
"Children are very much like
grown-ups when it comes to
choosing a book they like to
read," commented Miss Davis.
Very often they prefer non-fic-
tion and enjoy studying straight
discussion on diversified sub-
jects." The boys especially en-
joy topics dealing with minor
Events To Be Held
At Martha Cook
Residents of the Martha Cook
Building will present their annual
pre-Christmas weekend affair to-
morrow and Sunday at the dormi-
"White Christmas," a semi-for-
mal dance, featuring the music of
Phil Busche and his orchestra,
will be given from 9 p.m. to mid-
night tomorrow, according to Flor-
ence Garritson and Betty Gad-
bout, co-chairmen of the affair.
Decorations are being kept secret,
but they have announced that
refreshments will be served, and
novel entertainment will be pro-
A Christmas supper will be given
at 6 p.m. Sunday, and is under the
chairmanship of Jean Kilpatrick.
The supper is a traditional event,
following the performance of "The
Messiah." This year's guest list
will include members of the cast,
members of the Administrative
Department of the University, and
officials of the Music School.
The supper will be followed by
a coffee hour, to which residents
of Martha Cook may invite their
friends. A program has been
planned, and will be presented in
the Blue Room.

Other books popular with ele-
mentary school children are "The
Big Tree" by Mary & Conrad Buff,
Walo's "Friendship Valley," "Paul
Revere" by Esther Forbes, illus-
trated by Lynd Ward, "Mr. Plum
and The Little Green Tree" by H.
E. Gilbert and illustrated by Mar-
garet Bradfield, a local resident.
"Volcano" by Tom Galt, "Star-
light" by Woddy, "Wind in the
Willow" by Rackham Giahame, and
the ever popular "Anderson Fairy
Tales" are also good selections.
"Children have good taste in
books-especially if they have
had a good background," said
Miss Davis. She continued by
saying that it, was important
that children read a variety of
books, especially those matching
their particular interests. "Ex-
pose them to the best works, but
also see they get information
on the special subject they wish
Today there is a flood of litera-
ture on the market. It takes an
experienced eye to sort the good
from the bad. Miss Davis added,
"the concept of discrimination in
reading matter should be stressed
at an early age so that children
will develop with a sound knowl-
edge of worthwhile as well as in-
teresting literature. In this way
they will derive the greatest bene-
fit as well as pleasure."
The weekly Faculty-student
tea will be held from 3:30 to
