VISITS LUBEC Two fire trucks escorted Santa Claus [ around Lubec Sunday, Dec. 9, with irens heralding their approach and call- ag young and old to doors and windows. tops were made where the children were athered and at houses where it was nown that children dwelled and Santa lain distributed oranges. Early in the morning it was feared that 1 trip might have to be cancelled due to tb;fact that the temperature was down the zero mark and the fruit might However, later in the day the died down and the temperature so that the start was made around )on time. They had only been gone a short time aen a call came in for a fire in one of the LUdEC (Coniinued) to be a frying pan on fire and it was quickly extinguished. It was nearly dark when Santa Claus returned to the fire station in search of hot coffee to warm him up. HEAVY WINDS Gale force wind Saturday evening and through the night tumbled the tempera- tures from the 50 degree mark to near zero causing the turning up of thermo- stats and the opening of drafts on wood stoves. Messages on the scanner told of trees and limbs falling across wires and about the middle of the evening the whole Lubec area was plunged into darkness. Candles, flashlights and kerosene lamps were brought out and generators started. The oil drum at the home ofa Lubec resident was blown off its stand, breaking the pipe and causing him to lose all his oil. He spent a very cold night. It was indeed a contrast to the balmy weather we have been having. On Nov. 9 I picked a pint of large raspberries off the bushes in back of my house and there were blossoms and clusters of green ones all through thepatch. But later a day and night of below freezing temperatures ruined them. A week or so ago I noticed a few blossoms on my forsythia bush and that same week during a trip to Bangor we saw several forsythia bushes in bloom. Today, Dec. 10, there is a thin coating of snow on the ground as the result of snow falling during the night, and although sunny, the wind is blowing hard which will, no doubt, tumble the temperature from 30 degrees at 8:30 a.m. to near zero again. But, after all, winter is nearly here. NEW MUNICIPAL ADM. ASST. Gregory G.

They were a mystery to me. Three little souls cast out on life's sea; There was no shelter. Do not forget them. In secret whispers they talked of home in a distant port. Was it heaven? One night in a burning house Life's current bore them to their destina- tion. Three little bodies in one small casket. Remember them. Now we celebrate the birth of Jesus.
