The time has come to rewrite
fthe words to Christmas cals to
fit, these modern "buying times."
"Rudolf, the Red Nosed Reindeer"
might be improved by new lyrics
more in tune with the times.
Rudolf, the red nosed shopper
Travelled 'round from store to
store
Looking for grandma's present
A dollar, he could spend no more.
All of the little children
Ran to try on new space suits
Rudolf screamed, "That's the
present
And the little gun that shoots."
Grandma, she will love these gifts
With them she can play '
Picture her with helmet on
Grandma will look real gone!
Then how the children loved her
As they shouted out with glee
Grandma, the modern space man
Better than Elvis Presley-,
Commercial Influence
The commercial has had its in-
fluence in modern life, too. "Jingle
Bells" seems to have special at-
traction for the merchant. The
Michigan Daily's version of the
song might run as follows:

Michigan, Michigan
Daily's what we' sell.
Read It conscientiously
You can then foretell
O! what's on here,
Who'll speak there
When the game will be
If you want a Job or such
Then read the D.O.B.
Poetry. Renovated
Poetry is not immune to this
vicious pastime. "The Night Be-
fore Christmas" might be brought
up to date and shortened for
greater effect.
'Twas the day after Christmas
And all through the house
The children were screaming
"My dad, he's a louse.
I wanted Pat Boone hits
And what did I get?
A do-it-yourself home
Brain surgery kit."
The poem, of course, is much
longer but there seems to be no
need to continue in this vein. The
idea has been presented and the
fun of rewriting the songs and
poems of Christmas can enliven
any holiday gathering."

Associated Press Newsfeatures Writer
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. W)-
The longest shooting range in the
world begins here.
This is the Air Force Missile
Testing Center, a 12,160-acre com-'
plex jutting from Florida's east
coast near Cocoa Beach.
Seven years ago it was a neglect-
ed and barren windswept dune,
almost separated from the main-
land 'by the, Banana River, with
only one land trail leading into its
interior through swamps and sand.
Ground Guarded
Now it is the carefully guarded
testing ground of the Army, Navy
and Air Force where men seek to
send missiles soaring into space
and over the Atlantic Ocean for
more ,than 5,000 miles.
The range itself extends past the
Bahama Islands, &uerto Rico, th6
Brazilian island of Fernando de
Noronha to the British-owned Is-
land of Ascension in the South
Atlantic and possibly beyond.
If you hang around here long
enough you can see the scientists
testing everything from a $4,500
air-to-air missile to a four-million-
dollar . missile, such as the Air
Force Atlas, designed to span
oceans and continents.
Throughout the chain of islands,
sparkling in the blue tropic waters,
are 11 tracking stations. Nine are
connected to Canaveral by under-
ground cables.
Boom Produced
The advent of the testing center
plus the enlargement of Patrick
Air Force Base, 18 miles to the
south, has produced a boom in
Cocoa Beach, once the haven of
what Floridians called the "35-
cent tourists."
All around the two centers -
Patrick provides logistical support
for Canaveral -- spanking new

motor courts and hotels in the
million dollar class are springing
up.
Beach property sells for $750 a
front foot and sometimes higher.
Beside& ballistic missiles, the test
center is also used for ; guided
missiles.' The 'first missile launch-
ing here took place July 24, 1950,
wl en a captured German V-2
rocket carrying an American-built
WAC Corporal was launched'
CapsaIBlossomied
Since then the cape has blos-
somed with huge cranes for raising
the missiles into firing position,
test towers for stationary testing
of engines, launching pads, under-
A7d]i\ti.]iL7w* iA3iR1T1 t3J 1r' 1

ground storage depots for
volatile fuels and shops.
Those who live in and a
Canaveral have become thor
accustomed to the high-p
roaring whine which preced
launching of a big missile, bu
so they still dash from their
to watch the big "bird" clim
the skies. The missiles are
for perhaps three itinutes
clear day.
The residents also know
of the launching pads are u
which service and thus h
generally accurate knowle
the missile fired, despite
curity precautions.
