Have you ever seen roughnecks celebrating the message of Bethlehem by racing on Main street in an auto truck, firing torpedoes and six shooters? If you never have, then you were not on Main street in Ada last night When the curtains of Heaven roll back and angels come down to praise the advent of peace bn earth, it is one thing. When 1900 years have passed and a gang of American roughnecks violate speed regulations and light the streets with the flash of fire arms to celebrate the birthday of Christ it is another thing. An angel chorus above the hills of Bethlehem. An auto load of half-baked Americans filling the air with noise and profanity. Take your choice. More than nineteen hundred years have passed since the advent of Messiah. Nations have yielded to His gentle teaching and the races of men have taken knowledge of the message He brought to earth. Civilization has adjusted itself to the philosophy taught by a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. Yet time and teaching both are wasted on men who worship jake and gun powder and offensive noises. How much has the world learned since Mary wrapped the Child in swaddling clothes and laid him in a manger? Judged by last night’s performance on Main street the world has learned nothing. Still there are those who express their joy at the birth of a Saviour by making unvarnished asses of themselves.

OW the Associated Press LOS ANGELES, Calif., Dec. 23.— Reading of depositions chiefly of residents of Indianapolis and Oklahoma City were expected to be resumed today by the defense at tho trial of Harry New, charged with the murder of Miss Lesser, his sweetheart. Depositions arleady offered on behalf of New, one by Mrs. Corder of Oklahoma City, who declared that he was known among his associates there as “Nutty New.” Another who gave a deposition was Theodore Taylor, fellow member with New in Indiana, who said he believed the defendant was insane, because he had a fondness for killing rattlesnakes when he did military duty on the Mexican border in 1916. Others state that he has * brooded over the alleged circumstances of his birth. Despite the advice of Judge Craig to mothers to keep their daughters of school age away from the trial, girls and women were predominant among hundreds seeking admittance to the court room. -Ic- Consorting Case Might Bust Up Happg Famitg London Coming to America to Learn The only case in police court this morning, was a consorting case, wherein a more or less prominent mere man was accused of Consorting with a more or less well known woman.
