We sent over 5000 toys to the International Missions Outreach in Oc.ober to be delivered to the school age cMdren at Christmas. I appreciate all the support, help, and donations that I received over the summer. These children have never even seen toys like this in thek Ie. Many ol the chiren ere lett alone all day because their parents have to work ih the fields. I believe these toys can bring hope and comfo=t to a small child that is discouraged and alone. I believe that the Lord will bless the children that receive these toys as well as the people that helped make this dream possble. Special Thanks to the following people: I thank the Lord for giving me the vision for this project. I thank my husband, Gordie, who supported me in every endeavor. I thank my mother, Violet Muffins, who endlessly hunted and delivered toys to me. I thank the people at Rhema Christian Center for providing donations and lor helping me set everything up with the International Missbns Outreach. I thank the International Missions Outreach, who have a heart for these people, tor providing tr"sportation to Haiti. I thank the Humpty Dumpty Day Care Center for being a olteclion point for me and for getting the parents involved. I thank Pete and Judy Tabor who worked hard collecting toys aqd who always appeed when I was discouraged. I thank everyone else who donated toys Ior these children. I hope I have not lergotlen anyone, rest assured that if I have, the Lord will not forget your lalthlul giving. So this Christm as Eve, close your eyes and imaging 5000 smiling children, and you willtruly know the meaning ot Christmas. Valerie Underwood Amsdill = i RAILROAD RECOLLECTIONS By, Roy C. Long HISTORY OF CHRISTMAS CARDS We who worked in and around train stations remember the heavy U.S. mail handled on passenger trains, especially during World War Two. Probably the heaviest of that era was in 1942 and no doubt more Christmas cards were sent through the marl during Christmas 1942 than at any other time. The following is a history of Christmas cards from The Train Dispatcher, Dec. 1962 issue, used with permission: =The urge to greet relatives and friends at Christmas, the heaviest holiday of the year, and to wish them happiness in the coming year is so general and deeply imbued that it is difficult for many to realize that our pleasant and convenient method of doing so was invented not much more than I00 years ago. People have been exchanging formalized greetings of various sorts since the beginning of history. The ancient Egyptians inscribed saluta- tions on papyrus. The Apostle Paul, in his Epistles, frequently invoked the phrase, "Grace toyou and peace." "Our Christmas cards date far, far back to the song of the angels that first Christmas E vs. In the Dark Ages handkerchiefs, garters and gloves and the like were utilized as symbols to commemorate various occasions, including Christmas. But the actual use qfChristmas cards, a custom oftremendous popularity for some years, is rather modern. =It began in England in 1842 (some place the date at 1846) when Sir Henry Cole sent the first Christmas cards to his friends. They were the size of a small visiting card, deco- rated with three scenes and holly and mistletoe and the compliments of the season. As an experiment, the designer and printer, J.C. Horsley, published a thousand of these and sold them all at one shilling apiece. "Henry Cole was a very colorful character of the Victorian era, an R N II II ZIEGLEH - GUNNOE & "I00'EMP Attorneys at Law Announce that Kelly K.

His name was closely associated with many useful reforms, including penny postage, perforrated postage stamps, post cards, paint sets for children and authentic type build- ing blocks for children, as well as children's literature designed to appeal rather then repel a child. "The subject of bitter attack all his life, even his first Christmas card was severely criticized. It was an oblong card with a dark edging, showing three scenes set in frames of vines. The large center panel showed a large and gay family enjoy- ing cups of Christmas wine, being dispensed from a large pitcher in the center of the table, even to the small- est children. Four of the figures are toasting the view. The two side panels represent two of the acts of charity, =feedJng the hungry" and "clothing the naked." Above the pic- ture was a printed "To:" and beneath the panels it said "A Merry Christ- mas and a Happy New Year to You," and farther down "From ......

Incidentally, many early Christmas cards are almost identi- cal with Valentines of the same period, repeating their tricks and sentiments with only the additional Christmas and New Year greetings to distinguish them. As manufac- turers experienced a growing de- mand tbr the cards, tlwy concen- trated on a quick turnover "while the craze lasted," since they consid- ered it a temporary vogue that would soon pass.

The boy first illustrated his father's books, but in 1830 set up independently as a wood engraver in London. He was an ambitious young man, deter- mined to find a method of printing illustrations in color as well as black and white. After four or five years work in London, he succeeded in inventing a process. "The more or less "c01or-starved" early Victorians reached to his de- lightful, bright prints in a manner quite beyond expectation. Manufac- turers and shoppers vied with each other for them and it became a source of great pleasure and prestige to send and receive colored Christmas cards. "Christmas card production and Army." popularity really got rolling in 1862 when Charles Goodall began to is- sue pictorial cards with designs by G.H. Bennett. The most notable period &Christmas card production was between 1878 and 1888. Then artists of considerable repute, even members ofthe English Royal Acad- emy, took commissions to illustrate them and in .1888, the "golden age of Christmas card production, one firm alone paid in a single year seven thousand pounds to artists for origi- nal drawings. "But in 1895, this peak had passed and we find one particularly percep. ti ve authority tellinghisreaders that | the custom was slowly dying out and would probably be extinct by the turn of the century, j "Not long after Sir Henry Cole's first card appeared, greeting cards were introduced into this country by a Boston lithographer named Louis Prang, who was a refugee from the German revolution of 1848. After the turn of the century, the infant industry in America really began to come into its own. Until then the artistic aspects of the cards had predominated, with the inscription generally as terse as the original card. Now decorative qualities in many cases began taking second place to lengthy messages - tender, comic, or sometimes just plain irri- tating. "Sales of Christmas cards in even the grim war years of 1942 were 1,200,000,000 cards, mostly in the traditional line despite such warslanted numbers as =Merry Christmas to my Sweetheart in the "There were more than I00 greet- ing card manufacturers and pub- lishers in 1942, directly or indirectly employing thousands of artists, writers, craftsmen, factory workers and salesmen. In that year when so many people were separated by wa'r and had money to spend on such trifles, it took $50,000,000 worth of stamps to send Christmas cards, one- fifteenth of the Government's entire postage revenue.
