Winona Republican-Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 28, 1949, Winona, Minnesota FAIR, MILD TONIGHT, TUESDAY THERE'S NO STATIC ON KWNO-FM 97.5 MEGACYCLES VOLUME 49, NO. 240 WINONA, MINNESOTA, MONDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 28, 1949 FIVE CENTS PER COPY EIGHTEEN PAGES Early Giving Stressed by Good Fellows NEMPLOYMENT, sickness and hard luck are the so- cial forces creat- ing the Increased need for the; Good Fellows thlsl Christmas. In this day, when the basic wage of an em- ploye with a fami- ly Is completelyj spent each week on living costs, William P. Wer- ner, executive secretary of the Wi- nona County welfare board, states a bit of hard luclc like an operation or sickness in the family can up- set the budget arrangement and make that family a so-called border- line case. They get in the hole and it Is a great effort on the whole family's part to recover sufficiently to establish Christmas giving in such homes. It is the children in these fami- lies that suffer, Mr. Werner pointed out. They are the ones that are not properly dressed for winter, whose food allowance suffers and who are often stunted In growth and health as well as In social standing by the misfortune. Organized charities have diffi- culty contacting these families. Their pride makes it difficult for! regular agencies to care for such' cases. I Here Is where the Good Fellowsj step In at Christmas time with a! helping hand. They give these fami- lies, struggling so hard to make both ends meet, a boost at Christ- mas time by purchasing for the children new shoes, a coat or a complete outfit of underwear. Just some simple and useful gifts, yet these gifts pay great dividends. They raise the morale of the child 100 per cent. He is not a forgotten child. The world really cares. He has something to show his playmates Christmas morning, something San- ta Glaus has placed in his stocking. The father and mother can kneel that Christmas day in their church and give thanks that their chlldern were not forgotten and that the world Is not so cruel and heartless as they may have thought. The fewj dollars they have struggled so hard to save for a gift for their children, perhaps has gone into a Christmas dinner. The Good Fellows by their little deed of kindness have changed that family's outlook on life, have turned could and probably would have been a very sad and disappointing Christmas into a happy one. The blessings their giving has spread are manifold. Chi n on U. S.

Atomic Energy commission announced today it is beginning construction immediately of an experimental device with which it will try to "breed" precious atomic materials. If this try succeeds, atomic development for both war and peace would be greatly strengthened. The commission did not state this in its Perish Mine Disaster By Richard K. O'Malley announcement, but it was Implicit. The AEC did tell a little of Its plans to speed work on harnessing j atomic energy for industrial power 'and for propelling ships and air- crai't. "Breeding" would mean greatly expanded resources of atomic .materials for use in bomb or as I fuels in established or proposed I peacetime applications of atomic (energy.
