"Do you realize we've never had a Christmas here In our own itome, Just ourselves and our family 7" "Yesr '.< , I've been thinking o1' that," " Mr. Will replied. "Let's keep it just ourselves, an(1 gtve the kiddies one t.rnly home Christmas to remember." As usual, Mr. and Mrs Will were ,,' In complete agreement In their ideas and emotions.. Mrs. Will sighed con- tentment. Mr. Will sighed content- ment, too; for after all, such harmony as theirs is not so common in this workaday world of wives and hus- bands. But as Chrlstmss day grew nenrer and nearer Mrs. Will suddenly reallzed she wa,s nursing a sick conscience. There was something she had not tim heart to confide to Mr. Will. Now, Mr. Will had a slck conscience, too. There was something lie had not the heart to confide to Mrs. Will . But fortunately everything was straightened out before Christmas, that day of peace, dawned. Billy, their oldest, didn't know what the word conscience meant. Of ",, course lie had heard mother and fa- ther whispering about lmw nice a trlctly family Christmas would be. ,-j ,He had heard them. but perhaps be hadn't understood their sentiment. Anyway, at luncheon, two days be- fore Christmas, he suddenly blurted, "Say, Morn, Pve asked Jim Larkln to our Christmas dinner and the tree. lieu know his folks are in Europe, and he's Just staying on at the school. Thought he'd like it here better. More homelike." i. "Oh, bother, Billy," Lucy cried thirteen-year.old Lady Lucy. "I've asked Patty Brown, She hasn't any ,' . folks anywhere, even in Europe. Just that snobbish great-aunt who's giv- ing a big imuse party, all old folks, and doesn't want Patty around. She needs a home Cbrlstmas more than your Jim I" Falher was eyeing mother anxious- ly. Her bright smile amazed him. "Well, I'm sure there's room for them both. I am glad you have such kind h earth. Children." But now Mr. W'lll spoke timidly, "I'm sorry, mother, but I, too, have asked a guest. Couldn't help it some- howl That young Miller at the of- rice.

They're such nice young people--and Gladys is so pretty l" So that's what happened to the Wills' precious family Christmas. But not one of the Wills felt that he had been clieated of anything. On the contrary l And Mr. and Mrs. Will are In closer harmony than ever. You see, they are the same sort of people--not a too com- mon thing In workaday life. And Billy and Lucy are growing up rather like them. (, 1951.
