Alvin sings in the Bowie Ele- mentary choir and the Bowie Elementary choir's Christmas program was presented over a local radio station Wednesday. Dave got ready to listen to Bowie, and to Alvin. He got fresh batteries for his transis- tor and, as the time neared, stopped work and called Beth Geigcr and Shirley Jarrell from their desks to listen, too, to Bowie and to Alvin. The music was lovely, sweet young voices telling in song the story of Christmas. Dave, being a father and a keen-eared singer as well, could pick out Alvin's voice easily "That's he advised Beth and Shirley. "That's him.

Vandals apparently had done their work. Almost all the large show windows in the store had been broken with rocks. There was no sign of broken glass on the floor of the building, indicat- ing it had been tended recently. The news of the permits appar- ently had spread over Abilene as a steady stream of curious on- lookers drove past the brightly lighted building.

He de- clined to say if anyone was pres- ent to pick up the licenses, but added "I assume they already lave licenses by now." He said the sale of liquor will je legal as soon as the licenses are received by the retailers.
