Hungry lhief Strikes liger Inn And School Cafeteria Of All "And in the sixth month the angel Gabiel was from God unto a city of Galilee, amed Nazareth, a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary. the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: bless- art thou among women. And when she saw him, she troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what of salutation this should be. And the angel unto her, Fear not, Mary, for thou has found fa- with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in womb and bring forth a son, and shalt call his JESUS. He shall be great and shall be called the of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto the throne of his father David: And he shall reign the house of Jacob forever; and of his kingdom ..... shall be no end.  "And it came to pass in those days, that there out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the should be taxed (And this taxing was first made Cyrenius was governor of Syria). And all went be taxed, everyone into his own city. And Joseph tlso went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, Judea, unto the city of David, which is called (because he was of the house and lineage David), to be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, great with child. "And so it was, that, while they were there, the were accomplished that she should be delivered. nd she brought forth her firstborn son and wrapped lira in swaddling clothes and laid him in a manger; ecause there was no room for them in the inn. "And there were in the same country shepherds tbidin in the field keeping watch over their flock by g aight. And, 1o, the angel of the Lord came upon them, tnd the glory of the Lord shone round about them, ind they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not, for behold I bring you good tidings of lreat joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is rn this day in the city of David a Saviour, which s Christ the Lord. And this shall he a sign unto you; e shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, !Yin in a manger. And suddenly there was with the tnge'l a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, !nd saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth lace, good will toward men. | "And it came to pass, as the angels were gone Way from them into heaven, the shepherds said one o another another, Let us now go even unto Bethle- m and see this thing which is come to pass which '1lte Lord hath made known unto us. And they came haste and found Mary and Joseph and the babe in a manger. And when they had seen it, they known abroad the saying which was told them g this child. And all they that heard it won- at those things which were told them by the erds. But Mary kept all these things, and pon- them in her heart. And the shepherds returned, and praising God for all the things that had heard and seen, as it was told unto them." St. Luke 1:26.33; 2:1-20 As we approach another Christmas season, it is that we again read the story of our Christ's birth recorded in the Gospel according to St. Luke, as set above. Each Christmas, Christ must be born again on in the hearts of each of us. During this Yuletide Season of 1970, there are things which the Malakoff News could wish for of you. May Santa Claus bring you many gifts worldly treasures; may your stockings be filled good fortune and good health. It is our wish that large turkey and other bounties decorate the tables each of you on Christmas day. To our fair female we wish that Santa brings each of you a new ; and for each man we ask added profits in business, a salary increase or a generous Christ- bonus. Yes, these and many other things we seek for our this Christmas. But more than these, we ask each of us be doubly blest by a spirit of giving sharing. The life of our Savior during the brief He became man on this earth was a life of ser- to his fellowman. We are taught that we should ge The hungry thief is still on a rampage in Malakoff and week end victims included the Tiger Inn on Highway 31 and the Ele- menta.ry school cafeteria. The loot taken from Tiger Inn included hamburger meat, weiners, steak, sliced ham, 4 dozen eggs, pork sausage and bacon. A carton of chewing gum, a box of plain Hershey bars, $3.00 in pennies and two 50c colin were also taken. At Elementary it appeared the imposter did some Christ- mas shopping along with snatching two cases of milk. The valuables included a food slicer and an 18 inch Toastmas- ter fan which was mounted on casters. Mrs. Ruby McLain discover- ed her Tiger Inn had been loot- ed Sunday afternoon as she checked on the care which ts closed Sundays. The school burglary was covered Monday morning by the janitor. The Chief said that other itmes could have been taken from the school as the cafeteria is closed for the hol- idays and regular personnel had not appraised the loss at the time of Monday report. Chief Whitehead theorized both thefts occured Saturday night. The Tiger Inn was entered from a gco00d k/o00e The Territory Traveler State Highway Patrolman Kelly Whitehead loves his work which sort of ham in the family. He's the son'of lawman Truman Whitehead, now serv- lng as Malakoff Chief of Police. But Kelly does have his prob- lems. At his former station Kel- ly had just learned to spell the name of the town -- Waxaha- chic when he was transferred to Midlothian. That doesn't in- dicate a short stay at Waxaha- chic because they are comlort- ably rooted at Midlothian and his dad says the family hasn't conquered the spelling of that city yet. Mike, 9 year old son of the Kelly Whiteheads, was a little disappointed to find his gift from his grandfather to be a Christmas Caxd -- until he opened R. Inside the card was a twenty dollar bill. "Oh grand- daddy -- thats the first one of those I've ever had!" Mike I'm still waiting on one ---and I've been waiting forty Ken Smith Flips Car On Hwy. 90 Kenneth Leslie Smith over- turned a 1968 Plymouth Satur- day morning at 4:20 a.m. on highway 90 at the Fisherman's Wharf exit.

Santa has been dropping in the last few days- and its adding up to a real Christmas feast. A lovely smoked turkey from the Dick Dwelles of the Athens Review, a fruit cake from Tex- as Power and Light and quail birds from the Shrimp (Char- les) Mormans. Shrimp, who cut his teeth in the newspaper business with Gilbert and I, is now associated with Poole Gas Co. here. He continues to print on the side now and then (up at the Dallas papers). The other day he came by the News to dabble with some sort of priming project. While here, his father-in-law, Benner Poole called -- telling him he was past ready to go quail hunting. Leaving Shrimp said I could get the skillet hot, because they never failed. I burned that grease up waitng on the birds! Thinking he'd forgotten -- guess what ? A few days later he came over with a sack of fine fat dressed quail. Please don't tell County Judge R. H. Lee, else he might not deliver the annual treat! Merry Christmas!
