A look back

By Staff
Researched by Dr. Bill Stewart
1942-December 12, Folks are raving about the wonderful holiday movie they saw at the Strand this week. It was "Holiday Inn," the highlight of which was Bing Crosby's rendition of "White Christmas."
1955-December 13, Christmas is in full flower in all the stores on Hartselle's Main street now and the center of town is beautifully enveloped with Yuletide light stringers twinkling up and down this principal thoroughfare.
1948-December 13, Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Stone, Jr., and their son, Scottie, plan to spend the holidays in Lindale, Texas, with Mrs. Stone's parents, Rev. and Mrs. P. C. Scott.
1918-December 14, Concerned loved ones are clinging to the faint hope that the Christmas packages they mailed the men being cruelly confined to German and Austrian prison camps are beginning to be received in these European stockades.
1885-December 15, How many days until Christmas? Ask the little ones who know how to count to ten and they will shout out the answer!
1948-December 16, Mrs. R. H. McClanahan entertained at her home on Rock Street Saturday afternoon with a lovely party for her daughter, Jane, the occasion being the youngster's fourth birthday. The children played for about an hour; then Santa Claus arrived and distributed presents to each one.
1945-December 17, Arthur Bean of the U.S. Army, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ben F. Bean, has arrived in San Francisco, Calif., from Japan following active duty. He is expected home for the holidays shortly.

1948-December 18, For the benefit of patrons who desire to mail packages or transact other business, the local post office will be open until 6 o'clock this evening, the employees foregoing the usual Saturday half holiday. This is a concession on the part of the post office and should be appreciated by the public.
