He was discussing religious matters with his family the oth- er night. "I he concluded, "that I'm an Episcopalian dur- ing the week and a Christian on Sunday." Among the Christmas shop- pers who (ill the stores this time of year one group stands out on a school-less Saturday. They are the small lykes, sav- ings clutched in hot, little hands, old enough at last to leave mothers behind and make their own gift selections them- selves. They follow a beaten path, salespeople say. They start out at the perfume or lingerie coun- ters and gradually work back to the dollar table and then to the 59 cent sachet, stretch socks and bric-a-brac. Like some big people, their finances are not quite as big as their heart. No gifts can quite match those first ones you .picked out yourself. There was this tow headed Abilene boy a few Christmases back who made his first shop- ping trip alone. He chose a hardware store and, leaving his mother parked outside, went in to shop for his friends. Proudly he returned with his gifts. He had bought each little boy he was at the "1-Hate-Girls" age a 25-foot piece c.r rcpe. And what could have pleased a little boy more? Santa is getting three letters packed into a single envelope from a San Jose address. One is from David who would like to have "a gun and holster chaps and cowboy hat, rifle and 'shierfs' badge."

"He surely did like 'Comin' Through the Dr. Bryant slammcred and then found an answer. "Don't believe our church choir would do very good on that." Judge Owen Thomas of 104th Court says he heard a "sad" joke the other day, one which women ihis wife in particular) don't think is amusing The story is about this man who said: "Listen. Do you hear To which tlie other fellow said, "No." To which the first man replied, "That's fun- ny, it's been that way all day." Women. Your Honor, just don't savvy silence.
