And it came to pass in those days, that
there went out a decree from Caesar
Augustus, that all the world should be
taxed. And this taxing was first made
when Cyrenius was governor of Syria. And
all went to be taxed, every one to his own
And Joseph also went up from Galilee,
out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea,
unti the city of David, which is called
Bethlehem; (because he was of the house
and lineage of David:) to be taxed with
Mary his espoused wife, being great with
And so it was, that, while they were
there, the days were accomplished that
she should be delivered. And she brought
forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him
in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a
manger; because there was no room for
them in the inn. ,
And there were in the same country
shepherds abiding in the field, keeping
watch over their flock by night. And, lo,
the angel of the Lord came upon them,
and the glory of the Lord shone round
about them and they were sore afraid.
And the angel said unto them, Fear not:
for, behold, I bring you good tidings of
great joy, which shall he to all people.
For unto you is born this day in the city
of David a Saviour, which is Christ the
ArJ this shall be a sign unto you: Ye
shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling
clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly
there was with the angel a multitude of
the heavenly host praising God and say
ing. Glory to God in the highest, and on
earth peace, good will toward men.
And it came to pass, as the angels were
gone away from them into heaven, the
shepherds said one to another, Let us now
go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing
which is come to pass, which the Lord
hath made known unto us.
And they came with haste, and found
Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a
manger. And when they had seen it, they
made known abroad the saying which was
told them concerning this child.
And all that heard it wondered at those
things which were told them by the shep
herds. But Mary kept all these things and
pondered them in her heart.
Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem
of Judea in the days of Herod the king,
behold, there came wise men from the
east to Jerusalem, Saying, Where is he
that is born King of the Jews? for we have
seen his star in the east, and are come a
When Herod the king had heard these
things; he was troubled, and all Jeru
salem with him. And when he had gath
ered all the chief priests and scribes of
the people together, he demanded of them
where Christ should be born.
And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of
Judea: for thus it is written by the pro
phet, And thou Bethlehem, in the land of
Juda, art not the least among the princes
of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Gov
ernor, that shall rule my people Israel.

Publications Party Puns
Include People Eater
The purple people eater watched intently as members
of pub board and the Daily Nebraskan crouched on the
floor over a hot game of pick up sticks.
Meanwhile the teeny, non-smoking editor of the Corn
husker puffed on a pink cigarette and Santa Claus
Bags and Packages
Grab bag gifts came out of paper bags, faked large
boxes, and a few were even wrapped for Christmas.
Every person was given a number and presented with
the gift which had the corresponding number. A highly
unique Santa Claus showed unerring aim in tossing the
gifts at all lucky recipients as he shouted un-Santa Claus
comments like "Bingo" or "Let's hurry up, I've got a
class at four."
Santa, a distant relative of managing editor Moyer,
blushed when he couldn't get the baby hula hoop won by
writer Marilyn Coffey over his shoulders.
An assistant business manager of the Rag drew a
spaceship to fly around a copy editor's globe pencil sharp
ener, and associate editor Dick Basoco was crushed when
his sharpener already had shavings in it.
Sue Schnabel blew valiantly on her little toy horn while
the pick up sticks narrowed to a close two-contestant race
when Sandra Whalen gave up after jarring a blue stick.
One Rag copy editor sat in a corner oblivious to all the
noise and mass confusion intently looking at the latest
copy of "Hazel" jokes.
Editor Hines munched on chocolates that had come,
in coin-like packages.
Literature was not forgotten in the gift parade. Nancy
Lewis received the latest copy of the literary journal
Dick Masters received two cigars and a roll of breath
Present No Surprise
George Moyer intently opened his beautifullly wrapped
package only to discover that he had seen the present be

serve good purpose a package of cigarettes and a box of
aspirins from another "sick, sick" member of student
