His name may. be Kris Kringle in Germany, Pere Noel in France and Reyes in Mexico, but he's good old Santa Claus to us in the United States. We are npw preparing a welcome and reception for this jolly old fellow. Gay colors of green and red will greet him upon his arrival in the United States. He will find stockings hanging from the fireplaces, and perhaps a bowl of hot soup will await him to aid him on his chilly errands. However, when he arrives in other countries he will be given an altogether SAKS, RIGGS WIN PRELIMS East Shafroth Victors Will __Represent SrhooLat Citg^- Wide Meet.

He will see the procession of the little French children as they march to church, each carrying a lighted candle. Then, if- he sneaks into a corner of one of those gorgeous cathedrals, he will see the entire family seated around the table eating onion soup. In Germany he will appear as Kris Kringle. Here he will receive much the same welcome as was given him in the United States, except that the German children do not hang their stockings over the fireplace: they hang them our of the window —me gyj.-. .rrrrg Santa with gay music and colorful dances. lie will probably receive a livelier reception there than in any of the other lands. However, the more conservative citizens of *his country will spend hours in worship. • A very different reception from the one he received in Hungary will be given to Santa in England. Here he assumes the name of Father Christmas. Christmas is usually spent quietly at home in England. The only sign of celebration that Father Christmas will see. or rather hear, will be the shooting of firecrackers by the younger generation. These countries mentioned are only a few of the many that Santa visits and. although he is given many different welcomes and called many different names, he doesn't seem to mind, for back of it all there is the same idea: "Peace on earth, good-will to men." vent Is [Friday Night EAST HIGH PUPILS Spotlight List Finds Sophomores Have Highest Scholastic Average.
