OFF 1 C 1 A L P U B LIC A T 1 O N Vol. XXX. No. 5 DENVER, COLORADO, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 9, 1943 Price, 10 Cents Yule tide Cheer Sent To Buckler Patients "WE WANT TO BE SURE that every pupil in East has a> chance to help decorate the 34 wards at Buckley Field for Christmas," said Miss Betty Sparhawk, East teacher and Red Cross representative. "December 9 and 10 have been set aside for pupils to bring gifts and Christmas tree ornaments. Students are to bring them to the front hall," she said. "The Spotlight, Student Council, some General Education classes and clubs of East will furnish the trees and part of the gifts and ornaments," said Bruce Heider, senior Student Council member. There will be a girl supervisor in*®'- Room 207 each period starting December 8 to supervise the wrapping of the gifts. Students may come in during study halls or free periods and help. "There are approximately 20 men to a ward, which will make about 700 presents or more to be given," said Mary Cook and Rosalie Lowe, co- chairmen of the project from the Student Council. Some suggestions for gifts are pocket-size books, postal cards of Denver, stationery, cards, handkerchiefs, billfolds, cigarettes, toilet articles, pencils, pocketbooks, puzzles, jokes, small toys (to be sent home to their children) and address books. No present is to be over 50 cents and students are requested to bring no food. The large Christmas tree to be used in the front hall for the Christmas Tree Dance to be held December 23 will later be sent out to the Buckley Field auditorium. [ I. R. is planning a Chistmas party for the 20 patients of Ward 31 at Buckley Field. The club will buy and decorate a tree and each man will be given a gift package with a hand painted Christmas card. Classes of Mrs. Virginia Stearns, club sponsor, are helping. ^ Dear Santa Claus: Tonight, as I stood and watched the little children climb upon your knees and gaze at you with trusting eyes, I thanked God that there was still a place where little children could put their faith in a trusting figure and where such as I might write to you and tell you of my wants at Christmas time. This year, Santa, put in the toe of my stocking peace and understanding and love of fellow men. Put lots of the American way of life in near the middle, ice cream cones, cokes, steak fries, pleasure trips on Sunday and all the crazy things that characterize us as a whole. Under the Christmas tree place the toys and whatnots of the little ones and have their shouts and voices fill the room with joy, for the happiness and contentment of children mean much to us at Christmas time. As for myself, Santa, my stocking would be ^J filled to overflowing if I could see the world at peace once more and the happiness we knew to be ours. —A SINCERE SERAPH. •Light and Darkness Theme of Pageant EAST'S EIGHTH ANNUAL CHRISTMAS PAGEANT will be presented at assembly in the school auditorium December 20 and 21 and at 8 o'clock the evening of the 21st under the direction of Mrs. Genevieve Kreiner, drama teacher, and Miss Fareeda Moorhead, director of the a cappella choir. The theme this year will be "Light and Darkness," in which the narrator, Bob Riger, compares the state of the world 2,000 years ago at the birth of Christ and the world today. A background of music portraying the spirit and theme of the pageant •*■ * fwill be presented by the 72 members of the a cappella choir. The theme centers about three American service men who are stationed outside of Jerusalem on Christmas Eve. They question the strength, power and duration of the words "Peace on Earth" as they think of today's turmoil. With the thoughts of the Holy Birth and the Crucifixion in their minds, they relive the days of old. Finally they realize that the Bethlehem Star and the Cross of Calvary are really symbols of hope and peace for the world of today. The cast includes: Soldiers, Albert Cruse, Joe Schwartz, Keith Hendee; shepherds, Charles Bloedorn, Barry Lorie, Michael Hall; kings, Gordon Milliken, Gerald Scheer, Bob Purcell; Mary (on stage), Barbara Kepner; Joseph, Clarence Ronayne. Harriet Robbins has the only speaking part as Mary (off stage). The music to be presented will be: "Adoramus Te Christe," by Rosslee; "Ave Maria,' by Rachmaninoff; "All Men Now Sing," by Bach; "Away in a Manger," by Schroth; "Give Peace rX I in Our Time," by Tschaikowsky, and "Beside Thy Cradle," by Bach. The latter song, "Beside Thy Cradle," has been sung in every pageant that the choir has taken part since its organization in 1931. The lighting effects will be arranged by Harvey M. Meyer, stage manager, and his stage crew. CHRISTMAS JOY
