“I just don't see how the chil- |
dren will have much of a Christ- |
mas this year. Dad is sick in the
hospital and what little we are
making we use up before we get
it in order for the children to re
main alive. Tom needs shoes now.
His feet are almost on the ground.
It is almost an impossibility for
the children to have much this
year”, rthe mother said to he
eldest daughter while standing
before the coal stove early one
There were only ten-days be
fore Christmas and things did
look dark for the Adam’s family
' this year. The only one of the
family that knew it was going to
be a Merry Christmas was little
Paul. Paul was only six years old
but he had written his letter to
Santa Claus and he believed that
Santa would bring all the things
he had asked for.
“We’ll have to get Paul some
thing”, the eldest daughter in
formed her mother. “The older
children might understand, but
not Paul. He believes in Santa
Claus and there is no way to
make him understand differtrt.”
Four days passed and then Paul
was out of the first grade for a
glorious week. Christmas vaca
tion was here and Paul was hap
py, because he could help with
the Christmas tree. He had al
ways wanted to help decorate the
Christmas tree, but last year he
was too small. This year mother
said he could help and he had
been looking forward to it for the
past year.
Paul would often go uptown
with his older brothers, looking in
the store windows at all of the
beautiful, shining toys.- He would
say to his older brothers: “I ask
ed Santa Claus for that, and I
told Santa Claus that you wanted
that,” pointing all the same time
in the window.
“You still believe in Santa
Claus,” the brother of ten asked
“Of course,” Paul answered.
“Say Mister,” P&ul shouted to a
man towering over him, “There
is a Santa Claus, ain't there?”
“Don.t say ‘ain’t’.” the brother
of ten shouted at Paul.
“Young man let me tell you
something and if anybody tells
you different they are are wrong.
There is a Santa Claus and he
will visit your house as well as
mine on Christmas Eve. You just
believe there is a Santa Claus and
he will bring you what you want
for Christmas. What do you want
for Christmas?” the elderly gen
tleman asked Paul.
Paul just remained silent look
ing at all the toys m the window.
“Tell me what you asked Santa
Clau to bring you?” the man in
quired further.
Paul finally realized the gentle
man was talking to him, “Oh, I
asked Santa to bring skates for
Jimmy; a sled for Elmer: and an
iron for mother. I asked him to
bring all of us something and he
will bring them.” Paul said.
“Sure he will bring them'’, the
gentleman said as he walked

home from their window shopping

\Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity
! Convention To Be Held in
i Columbus, Ohio Dec. 21
All of Columbus is anxiously
' awaiting the 32nd Annual Con
vention of the Alpha Phi Alpha
Fraternity starting December 27
and running through the 31. The
biggest event planned for the en
tire convention is the public meet
ing, to be held on Sunday, Dec.
29 at Memorial Hall. The meet
ing will be featured by the pre
sence of such celebrities as Paul
Robeson, famous actor and sing
er; Dr. Channing Tobias of the
Midnight before we go to bed?”
the eldest son of twelve asked.
“Oh, I guess so, but after that
all of you must get ready for
bed", answered the mother.
“.. I've got enough money too
buy Paul a scooter,’’ the eldest
daughter told her mother just two
days before Christmas. "I’m go
ing to get it for him today. We
can buy the other boys some toys
later on if we have the money. If
we don’t, we might be able to get !
some checkers or something that
we can afford.”
The children were all in bed
and as the mother and daughter
sat before the stove, huddled to
gether, getting the last heat be
fore the stove went out for the
night, they were talking softly,
almost silently. So much to think
about and so little to do it with.
Their bodies were tired from
the jobs that consumed so much
of their time. Minds mixed up,
not knowing just where to turn.
The eldest daughter was sombing
her hair, letting it fall lazily over
her shoulders. Her mother just
remained silent, pushing her feet
further under the stove while the
fire slowly died out.
A sharp knock sounded at the
door. The eldest daughter arose
slowly,/ almost half-asleep, and
walked to the door. Opening the
door part way and asking, “Who
is it?”
"..rm a tnend ot your son.
May I come in?”, the-man asked.
“Please do.” the daughter said
as her mother hurriedly got up
and walked into the other room.
After making excuses for her
appearance and the appearance of
the house, she asked the gentle
man to sit down on one of the
good chairs.
“I met your brother the other
evening and we had quite a chat*
about Santa Claus. I had planned
on coming Christmas Eve but in
order to be home with my family
I must leave tonight. I brought a
I do hope you will accept them.”
the gentleman said.
“It will make the children very
happy. Oh mother, mother come
here, come here!” the daughter
cried excitedly.
Her mother walked slowly out
of the darkened room, half-shy
and yet proud of herself and her
children. She smiled at the tall,
well-dressed gentleman, bidding
few presents for the children and
him good evening. He returned
her smile and walked out of the
door, talking to a man who had
accompanied him.
They began bringing in toys,
candy, and fruit. Time after time j
they walked in and out of the ;
door. The mother and daughter
just stood silently as if in a
trance. The men finally finished
bringing the many gifts and pre- |
sents. The mother walked up to '
the men, tears forming in her
eyes, and said brokenly, “If only
dad could be here to see this. W ho
shall I tell the children brought
them these gifts?”
The tall gentleman just smiled,
saying, “Just say Santa Claus
brought them. It was the greatest
pleasure that Santa Claus has had
this year. Both of you ladies just
sit down and I’ll bring in your
As the men came back through
the door both of the women jump
ed to their feet. It was dad. They
ran to him, hugged him, kissed
him almost overcome with emo
tion’ “Oh dad, you’re home,” his
wife sobbed.
During all of this excitement
the men had walked out. None of
them came out of the trance until
they heard a motor start up. They
just remained grouped together
until they heard the car pulling
“..Dad what are we going to
tell the children when they come
downstairs tomorrow? They know
that tomorrow is Christmas Eve.
We cannot hide all of these gifts.
There are just too many”, said
the eldest daughter.
Dad just smiled and said, 'They
will understand. We'll just tell
them that Christmas came early.”
