The Christmas Spirit”
( by Rev. J. E. Blackmore)
We look forward with
anxious anticipation to
cross the threshold into
another Christmas sing
ing such beautiful an
thems as, “Hark the her
ald Angels sing ” and ‘ Joy
to the world, the Lord is
come’, and “Away in the
Manger”. What a glor
ious event that will be.
How cheerful it will he to
hear these words, though
common-place, “Me r r y
Christmas” as we pass
each other on the street.
How beautiful the atmos
phere will be charged
with the spirit of Christ
mas on December 25, all
Rev. J. E. Blackmore
This spirit of cheerfulness and goodwill charac
terizes Him, whose birth we celebrate and whose life
was spent in “going about doing good”. His per
sonality laid hold not only upon the imagination of
mankind and thrilled it to admiration, but also upon
the reverent wills of men, and has drawn their feet
toward the Godward path He trod.
With love He overstepped the barriers between
races, classes and faiths, feeling the common broth
erhood in which every man was at home. He filled
life with joy and power. With simplicity, with com
plete trust in His Father, with ardent love for men,
Jesus gave to the world a pattern of life that lacks
the element of decay. He calls us to follow Him
and to share His experiences; to know God and to
do His will.
Christmas Sunday the Church will celebrate the
birth of Our Lord. It is to be hoped that every
Church will be filled to capacity. It is there that
we see how unobservedly to an excited and trouble
some world, God gave the kingdom of heaven to men
in the person of His Son. It is there that the words,
“Peace on earth and goodwill to men” have a deep
er and fuller meaning. It is also there that, we
see God needs human service. Joseph and Mary

THREE TIMES CHAMPION
AT CHICAGO STOCK SHOW
Three times Champion of the
world's greatest livestock show!
That’s the enviable record estab
lished by Robert Storz, Omaha, and
Karl Hoffman of Ida Grove, la.,
whose load of 15 lightweight Hereford
steers was presented the Grand
Champion Carlot award at the war
■ time Chicago Market Farm Stock
Show last week.
. Still another record was broken by
Hoffman and Storz, brewing company
executive, co-owners of the stock,
when their triple-champion load was
sold for an all-time high of $59 per
hundredweight. The previous high of
$55 per hundred pounds was set in
Both Hoffman and Storz said they
were “very gratified" at the showing
of their prize lot. “The high quality
of the steers fed and fitted by Karl
Hoffman is shown in the fact that for
three consecutive years the judges at
this great exhibition chose our carlo!
showings above all other entries,'
The Hoffman-Store three tim<
champion rating was not spread ovei
a period of years, but began at the
Chicago show of 1942. Hoffman and
Store exhibited Herefords for each ol
their three victories.
The 15 steers in the Grand Cham-*
pion Carlot totaled 14,550 pounds for
an average of 963 pounds per steer.
The triple-victory came after the
Hoffman-Store entry took first in the
lightweight and Hereford breed
classes. All of the winning steers were
purchased from the famed T-0 Ranch
at Raton, N. M., and were fed and
fitted at Ida Grove, leva.
Sale of the Cham’" in Carlot was
made to the Eppley Hotels Co., of
Omaha, operators of 20 midwestem
hotels, on the record-high bid of Eu

Now as imperiously as He did at Bethlehem.
The ministers of mercy and love are those who are
ever mindful of the things that abide; Beauty, and
Truth and Kindness, Friendship and Faith and
Hope and Love, Tenderness for the Needy. The
boys overseas do desire it. The Church advocates
it. The World needs it. And best of all (rod wants
it. May this Christmas be an enjoyable one to you
in the Spirit of Christ, who went about doing good.
Again L say to you, “Merry Christmas.”

The Passing of J. Dillard Crawford
The sudden passing of Attorney J. Dillard Craw
ford was a distinct shock to the citizens of Omaha.
He was one of Omaha’s leading citizens, having been
very active in civic and community uplift affairs.
For a number of years, he was chairman of the le
gal redress committee of the local branch of the NA
ACP. He was secretary of the Urban League board
and a supervisor of the “4C” Credit Union, Keeper
, of Records of the Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity. He
was Senior Warden of the St. Philips Church.
His activities were many in organizations, doing
work for the benefit of the people for whom he labor
ed incessantly and untiring.
The Omaha Guide and the community mourn the
liss of an able and distinguished lawyer and citizen.
Mr. J. Dillard Crawford’s fine spirit, which char
acterized his life, will linger long in the memory of
those who knew him.
