Arizona Silver Belt (Newspaper) - December 21, 1961, Miami, Arizona Vol. 33 Entered at post oftlce us second-.ciass mat- ter under Act of Congress March 3, 1878. Miami, Arizona, Thursday, December 21, 1961 a Copy 18 Pages if Saint Luke And it came to pas.-; 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 into his own city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth into Judea, unto 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 child. And so it was that they were there the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her first-born son, and wrap- ped 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 be to all people. "For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. "And this shall be a sign unto you: Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a man- ger." And suddenly there was with the .angel a multi- tude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, "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 an- other, "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 wi'.h haste, and 'found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. And when they had seen it, they made known abroad was told them concerning this child: And all they that heard it wondered -at those things which were told them by the shepherds. But Mary kept all these things, arid pondered them in her heart. And the shepherds returned, glorifying and prais- ing God for all the. things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them. The Miami Town Council Mon- day night decided in favor of rczoning the commercial fire- district. That portion of the district lying west of the center line ol' Reppy Ave. from the Southern Pacific tracks to the center line of Sullivan St. will be declared a residential instead of a com- mercial area. Council called the amendment an emergency, and said it would become eluctivo immediately. The decision arose from a re- quest presented to Council earl- ier-this month by Mr. and Mrs. William D. Watson, who havo proposed to build a frame house on lot 16, block 42, at ihe vest end of Sullivan St. The hr.d been set aside for block con- struction only, because it was wilhin.the commercial Tire Existing frame buildings the aroa. it was pointed out, were there before No. 1 Fire District came into being. Council had agreed at the last meelim: to consider a possible char.se in the ordinance. IT WAS Town Clerk E. M. Bredwell who formally suggest- ed the ordinance be amended, after Fire Chief Lincoln pointed out that- value, which briefly discussed, properly had no bearing on the decision. "Under 'he existing ordinance." Chic! Lincoln said, "you can- not build a frame structure and you cannot place a trailer in thnl. area." .Mayor Franco said he believes it is the responsibility of the Town Council to help people wherever possible and to en- Town Clerk's office and would therefore necessarily require more detail. Mayor Franco initiated the re- pori system last month.

Informed sources say the she lost was part of a welfare check which was to have sustained the family over the holidays. It would have bought food and some Christmas things for the children, but she somehow lost it either in the area of Pete's County Store or the Ryan Ev- ans Drug Store in Miami.
