White Christmas Dream is a few days before Christmas, and all through our house. All we creatures are bustling and hustling like mouse(s). No snow nor cold weather dares enter this scene But, I envy you all and my WHITE CHRISTMAS DREAM. The crunching of snow, under YOur feet, The half-frozen shoppers crowd- ing the street. The soft white snow that covers the ground And the laughter and song that so clearly resounds. Frosty windows with trees peek. ing through, To me, this is Christmas, how a- bout you? Our Christmas is different in this land of the sun We have all the trimmings, but not half of the fun. I miss the snow, Tom likes the sun And poor Terian does not know what fun- It is to romp and play and slide in the snow Nor to make a snowball and watch it grow- Into a fat jolly snowman, with scarf so bright, Who stands straight and tall like a guard in the night. But this time next year, we will be rolling along Counting each mile with a smile and a song. , The three Tyre's and of course our Honey Will bring you a bit of our state and its sunny- Weather, but in return make sure you have snow That is one of the questions Terian must know. Will grandma have snow? is it cold? is it pretty? Is it soft? is it clean? or is it real gritty? Will Daddy build a snowman fat and round? What is a sled? does it glide on the ground? As you can see we have quite a session Tryingto answer all of her count- less questions. It is hard to explain to a child who is four And has never witnessed a WHITE CHRISTMAS before But by Dasher and Dancer and Vixen we'll be The biggest packages under the tree. We will glittter and sparkle and shine and glow As we peek through the windows out on to the snow. My WHITE CHRISTMAS dream will then come true But the best part of all .... we will be home with you. HAPPY HOLIDAYS From the West Coast Patricia McCarthy Tyre. s Nolo-" The above fine sentiment of a White Christmas was sent to Mr. and Mrs. Glen daughter. My grandfather edited a coun- try newspaper in the days when it was common practice to swap farm produce for a year's sub- scription to the paper. One day he ran into a farmer who wanted the paper but had no produce to swap. "Well, Herman," my grand- dad said, "what about corncobs? I can always burn them in the office stove." "Heck John," replied Herman, "if I had any corncobs I would- n't need your newspaper!" There are days when I'm sure that farmer was right. ian as he seated himself in the chair. It couldn't have been me, re- plied the observant barber. I've been here only two months.

This growth is due to the improve- ments through the years in in- creasing activities to meet the wants and needs of the 4-tI mem- bers themselves. Achievement winners have in- creased due to better understand- ing by the parents and members themselves and by increased effort on the part of the local leaders. It is through the combined effort on the part of all of us in Igan county, our 4-H program will continue to grow throughout the coming years.
