Muncy Creek school for the children who had
been exposed to scarlet fever, another at
Wendover for the children who had been ex-
posed to whooping cough, and the two "ex-

in the district!
But to begin at the beginning: For weeks
before Christmas we had been practicing
carols, with all the children, big and little,
who lived near enough to come regularly, but
excluding those from the scarlet fever dis-
trict. Bright and early Christmas morning
the carolers appeared. The creeks were
frozen, the ground was covered with snow and
the air was bitterly cold, but the blizzard had
not yet gotten under way. Among the first
arrivals was one little girl who had broken
through the ice and who arrived with her
shoes and stockings freezing on her feet. After

The party at the Muncy Creek school had
it something we were all doing together and
doing with such pleasure and abandon that
shyness and self-consciousness slipped off and
were forgotten. Blithely, tirelessly they sang,
sang with such spirit that everyone who knew
so much as a measure of the song was im-
pelled to join in. Then when the whole crowd
had sung itself breathless there were "speeches."
Ewell, mounted on a table to bring his seven-
year-old height above the level of the crowd,
sang "She'll Be Coming 'Round the Mountain
When She Comes," sang it so earnestly and
lustily that it was easy to believe his lisp
was a proper part of the song. And then
everybody sang again.
But how can one put into words the warm
gaiety of that party, the air of "our-ness,"
the joyous freedom of the children, of every-
one, that seemed ever to be handing around
the laughing, beckoning query, "Isn't this a
wonderful party we are making?" A part of
it sang in the embracing gladsomeness of the
carols. The radiant faces of the Lewis twins
amplified the theme as those two youngsters,
