She's an authority on the subject. Since starting in the time-keeping department of Good-year, Aline has watched 40 Christmases slip by. The first was in 1927, just seven months after she cleared , - her belongings from a Tennes-see elementary school and de-cided to trade her teacher's desk for an adding machine at Goodyear. She came to Akron because her brother was a Goodyear man and he spoke highly of his employer. Since that tiihe each Christ-mas season has signaled the beginning of a new chapter in an ever-expanding voldme cov-ering the service of Miss Mdore. Flip the pages of the book and their story blurs into a kaleidoscope of changes, reloca-tions and new faces. The changing faces are one of the first things to come to mind as Aline looks back on her 40 Christmases with Goodyear. "There have been so many peo-ple who have come and gone since I arrived in 1927," she said. She started in the timekeep-ing department, but that was before its decentralization. Lo-cated in Plant 1, the department then was staffed by 125 women.

Free men everywhere join in solemn observance of this traditional Christian holiday. The reverence of the season is even exemplified by men of other faiths who join with Christians in this observance of the spirit that represents understanding. ., Normally a season for giving, the meaning of the Christian holiday represents a historic attempt of man to understand man. It is this quest for international understanding that makes this year's holiday season most memorable. At Goodyear, we have enjoyed a year of unrivaled progress and this measure of past .... . --*- I accomplishments shines with the promise of a future filled with continuing successes. -. It is only fitting, however, that we sacrifice a measure of personal enjoyment to the thought that man must learn to live in the Lord's house in peace. \ '. ...• '. - Thus, this sincere wish for a memorable Christmas is accompanied with a desire for the development of greater understanding between men and Peace on Earth for ·all time.

Advances in tire engil neering now make it pos-sible to extend the additional blowout and puncture protection of the LifeGuard safety spare to Goodyear tires of the type that come on new cars, as well as the company's Suburbanite winter tires, premium tires and extra wide high-performance tires, Charles A. Eaves Jr., vice president, expl•ined. The LifeGuard safety spare is a special •second tire" that fits inside the conventional tire. It carries its own air supply and enables the driver to main-tain control of his car even in the event of severe blowout-producing tire damage. •Exhaustive tests and our thorough experience with this unique inner tire," Eaves said, "have demonstrated that the LifeGuard safety spare is the most reliable safety device cur-rently available to prevent loss of vehicle control in the event of a tire failure." He noted, ••We have no sta-tistics on accidents that have not happened, so there is no way to determine how many delays and accidents have been prevented through the use of Clan Schedule Due to scheduling diffi-culties during the holiday season, this is the final issu• of The Clan for 1967.

"During the 1966 racing sea-son inner tires, traveled upwards of three-quarters of a million miles and were credited with preventing a considerable num-ber of crashes that would have occurred because of tire damage had the inner tire not been in use," Eaves said. "The figures are not complete for 1967, but we are sure that inner tire mile-age will have increased and that its safety record will be even greater." Eaves said the suggested re-tail price range for the Life- Guard safety spare is $20.20 to $24.50, depending on size.

A steel ball bounces only slightly when dropped on the new energy-absorbing foam attached to a car seat, while it rebounds several inches (inset) when it hits the resilient foam used for auto seat cushioning. Removing the bounce reduces the chances of whip-lash injury, because the foam absorbs energy caused by sudden impact instead of snapping back. rir.,%:47*1-.•:*-*•...#.-• .:·.'*' · ...'&'. *.. 0. 36... ......12&-1 ..1. 0.=36..*.......'=.......... ....." .... ." fit:e,1,· . & '. ...I 4 . prltts,g• .M •*:·. .·*· ··· :. 1 :; , · 4 , 1: fi,. ,, ,• , , , : · • , •. •. ,.0.1362¢ 4 • , i ,. ·, *2Mr_r e' «444.•*•, I ., t.t ···'«' " '' . · it ,..1 31 0 4. 4. .. 1... ... . . ... , . ..'... v b ".,7 1,7';7 7.1.2 ' 4.4. 3:. *2* ** ,A (Editor's Note: This column reports activities of our com-petitors that may directly or indirectly affect our business efforts.)

"The good weather helped to make this one of the biggest Christmas parties we ever had," said Chuck Bloedorn, director of recre-ation, after the annual event last Saturday. Approximately 250 pee-pie helped set up and con-duct the party, and gave away 31,000 toys and 31,000 bags of candy. The Employes Activities Committee played a large part in the success of the 1967 party. Eight fulllines poured through Goodyear Hall from the time the doors were open at 7: 50 a.m. until 1 p.m. when the steady flow subsided slightly. The doors closed at 5 p.m. The 1,500-seat Goodyear The-atre was filled to capacity for each of the four acts of Sabo's Chimps. A total of 6,000 chil-dren saw the act, and many more jammed into the seats for the cartoons throughout the day. "Bullwinkle was a big attrac-tion," said Bloedorn. #,The chil-dren just wanted to walk up and touch him. And they wanted to shake hands with the organ grinder's monkey." The organ grinder was Ar-nold Masino, and he and his monkey were a big hit with the party goers. Other busy people included Chic Johnston and Don Lockert, both better known as Santa Claus at this time of year. Bloedorn also received favor-able comments on the nativity scene and the Christmas tree, which he thinks was "the most beautiful tree we have ever had." The most popular toys were the same ones that have proven popular in the past-footballs, basketballs, tea sets, rifles and pistols. RANKING HIGH in popu-larity at the Christmas Party was this bewhiskered chap, who sat ready to hear requests from youngsters up to 12 years of age. DONALD AND MARK Newell were delighted at the prospect of basketball practice. They were prom-ised instruction in the game by their father, Charles Newell Sr., a service employe at Goodyear Hall.

The girls (from left), are Janice Popa, Grace O'Neal, 1,0uise Bates and Virginia Smith. THE ANNUAL clmb to re-trieve the Christmas decora-tions at the Plant 3 warehouse is made by Alice Sands as Marie Warner gets the tree ready for trimming. .* - Just like • families around the world, the giant Good-year family unpacked its Christmas · decorations and brightened office and factory areas. Employes remembered that corner of the cabinet or shelf where they carefully placed the decorations after the last holiday season. They made the annual search for ornaments, found them, and carefully retrieved them from their hiding places. An inventory revealed the damage of last season and a year in storage. A shopper was appointed and the damaged decorations were replaced and a new ornament or two were added to last year's display. This is what happened in the Goodyear _plants the past few days, and now the facilities sparkle with the brightness and gaiety of the Christmas season. Eveh more.meaningful than the decorations, are the actions of Goodyearites. Gifts of presents and cash are being made to various institutions by many depart-ments. Some departments are discouraging sending cards to fellow employes and using the money for charitable donations. PLACEMENT of a wreath gets special • attention from Norma Gunnerson in the Re-search Division lobby. Two large green trees brighten the scene for visitors to Research.

Christmas Is The International Holiday - ..'' The most universal of the world's religious holidays is Christmas, a day that has special meaning even for many millions who do not kneel in the house of Christianity. Many of those who base their religious beliefs on another set of circumstances have come to rega rd Christmas as a time when men of all faiths can join in a united search for mutual understanding and trust. The true religious meaning of Christmas remains as the pinnacle of Christian history, and no Christian observance of the holiday would be complete without the special pray-ers of the season. But accompanying the heavenly appeal in many parts of the world is a more earthly call for an end to the distrust that fosters man's inability to understand his fellow man. Man's appeal to reason is being heard and, difficult to realize in the face of open war-fare, the centuries of understanding urged in Christianity's basic philosophy is becoming a reality. Total success may not be registered in the day of those living, but there is little doubt in the minds of reasoned men that human understanding is a goal within reach. With the reality of success uppermost in mind, Christians everywhere this year will pause to savor some of the joys of the season. Perhaps most in the minds of Christians everywhere this year are the military men and women who stand ready to preserve the dig-nity and freedom of man throughout the world. Servicemen standing the lonely vigil of democracy's guard will pray softly for peace and then spend as much of the day as possible remembering happier holidays. For some, sea-son's grdetings will be no more than a box of cookies from home, but .each rein*mberance will be cherished regardless of its economic value. 0 Although greatly outnumbered by non- Christians, Americans in the Far East will find that most individuals and communities take special, note of Christmas. Gay decorations and festive meals are evident everywhere, and many of the traditions of Christmas have been adopted by peoples who have little real un-derstanding of the religious overtones of the season. I , •6 In addition to the sort of mock holiday ob- , served by the non-Christians, Americans ·will I 40 .1 0 1 I i 5/1,1 : +, 17 ..4 I 'r . , 7 . #.. / ../ 5 i I . t . /14 * , .. .I 1 .f .. ... 4 2.".0., t ..1 ' 4.... 0. 4 04.2:.S, 4 'll 4. . * , , 0 't . 1, , 1 '' I ,/2 .' find that religious services and festive cele-brating take place even in locales where only a few Christians can band together to observe the holiday. In such isolated areas, Christmas seems to have even more than the usual meaning. A fern decorated with colored paper or fish deli-cacies instead of the traditional turkey take on special meaning for the military man and Goodyearite assigned to a country where pine trees and cranberries are regarded as pictures in a geography book. But balanced against the outposts of Chris-tianity are the solid holiday traditions that were born to assist man in marking the coming of the most important religious·holiday. British traditions for the holiday season will remind most Americans of home. The an-- cestor of the American Christmas, the British holiday is complete with all of the memories so capably described by Charles Dickens and Washington Irving. This also is the land of the holly branch and the custom of singing Christmas carols. The traditional American Christmas scene is rounded out in Germany, the home of the decorated tree displayed in nearly every Amer-ican home. The Germans still are undecided if the tree custom was originated by Martin Luther or an early missionary to pagan Ger-many. Regardless of the origin, the tree still symbolizes the season in a country where the holiday is a festive, month-long observance. .. The tradition of gift giving is present in all Christian nations, although in some instances the practice is restricted to Children who may receive presents on any one of several relig-ious days during the holiday season. 4 + , Although customs may vary, Christmas will be very real for the thousands of Goodyearites spread across the globe. There are as many differences in observing the holiday as there are countries, regions or, actually people. In Italy, for example, Christmas is a time of reverence during which nearly all have fasted for 24 hours prior to attending a mass at midnight, again in the morning and another time in the evening. ,. Christmas Eve is a time of gaiety when . Italian families and friends gather to collect their gifts from an "Urn of Fate." The holiday menu varies from one part of the countky to another, but fish is always an important dish. The holiday meal also plays an important role in the German observance of Christmas. Goose is the traditional attraction and cran-berry lovers will take special delight in a sim-ilar berry served on festive occasions. The holiday season begins in The Nether-lands on Dec. 6 when a likeness of St. Nick appears to give children fruit, nuts, candy and small presents. Festivities continue until Dec. 25 when people of the several Christian relig-ions offer traditional prayers. Goodyearites in Japan will watch in fas-cination as a largely non-Christian population celebrates Christmas with all the fervor of Christians. The streets and stores are color-fully decorated, Christmas trees abound in homes and the surprise of gift giving is only exceeded by the amazement that turkey has almost become a standard item on the holi-day menu. It No area can surpass the Scandinavian countries for the intensity of holiday season celebrations. It is an area where the inspira-tional sto ry of Christianity is intertwined with the tales of pagan gods from an even more remote antiquity. --- Homes everywhere display Christmas can-dies to guide the way for the lovely Kristine, a pagan deity who brings gifts to thel children. On the farms, the animals are given special taste treats and fresh loaves of· bread are set outside so that even the birds may enjoy the season. Since Christmas in the Southern Hemi-sphere comes at the height of summer, it often is difficult for Americans to realize that it is-- the same holiday. But the thermometer reading has little to do with the meaning of the holiday, and festive *." . meals mingle with the prayerful observance of Christmas. Gift giving is popular and enter-tainment ranges from horse races to iced drinks at a sidewalk market. These are justa few of the Christmas cus-toms from around the world. There are count-less others that will live in the memories of Goodyearites. Everyone will find special mem-ories to cherish through the years, and many of these memories will be so personal that they can never be shared completely by any two people. ,. But the most important sharing at Christ-mas is not that of memories. It is the solemn realization that this is the 1967th anniversary of the birth of the Prince of Peace. .-- $. 4 .

We take pleasure in answering at once and thus prominently the com-munication below, expressing at the same time our great gratification that its faithful author is numbered among the friends of THE SUN: "Dear Editor - I am 8 years old. 4'Some of my little friends say there is no SANTA CLAUS. "Papa says 'If you see it in THE SUN it's so.' "Please tell me the truth, is there a SANTA CLAUS? "Virginia O'Hanlon, "115 West Ninety-fifth street." Virginia, your little friends are wrong. They have been affected by the skepticism of a skeptical age. They do not believe except they see. They think that nothing can_be which is not comprehensible by their little minds. AlI minds, Virginia, whether they be men's or children's are little. In this great universe of ours man is a mere insect, an ant, in his intellect, as compared with the boundIess world about him, as measured by the in-telligence capable of grasping the whole of truth and knowledge. Yes, Virginia, there is a SANTA CLAUS. He exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion exist, and you know that they abound and give to your life its highest beauty and joy. Alas! how dreary would - be the world if there were no SANTA CLAUS ! It would be as dreary as if there were no Virginias. There would be no childlike faith then, no poetry, no romance to make tolerable this existence. We should have no enjoyment, except in sense and sight. The eternal light which childhood fills the world would be extinguished. Not believe in SANTA CLAUS ! You might as well not believe in fairies! You might get your papa to hire men to watch in all the chimneys on Christmas eve to catch SANTA CLAUS, but even if they did not see SANTA CLAUS coming down, what would that prove? Nobody sees SANTA CLAUS, but that is no sign that there is no SANTA CLAUS. The most real things in the world are those that neither children nor men can see. Did you ever see fairies dancing on the lawn? Of course not, but that's no proof that they are not there. Nobody can conceive or imagine all the wonders that are unseen and unseeable in the world. You tear apart the baby's rattle to see what makes the noise inside, but there is a veil covering the unseen world which not the strongest man, nor even the united strength of all the strongest men that ever lived, could tear apart. Only faith, fancy, poetry, love, romance, can push aside that curtain and view and picture the supernal beauty and glory beyond. Is it all real? Ah, Virginia, in all this world there is nothing else real and abiding. No SANTA CLAUS! Thank God ! he lives, and he lives forever. A thousand years from now, Virginia, nay ten times ten thousand years from now, he will continue to make glad the heart of childhood. 1 5 , , I \ = \ ; ..t' 254. .., * 4 * 7 .*'·ir» 4%- --*:I.' .i
