Hope Christmas Wagon

Believing that it is more blessed to give than to receive and thereby showing the true Christmas spirit, employees of the local office of the Hope Natural Gas Company contributed to a fund for taking the darkness out of the Christmas of some of the more unfortunate families in the district.

A big truck drove up Wednesday in front of a Grantsville store and loaded up with flour, groceries and provender of various kinds.  The food was taken to the local office of the gas company and made up into bundles and will be distributed to some thirty families in various sections of the district.

What with the five day week, a reduction in salary for some of the white collared boys and worst of all SON_ selling at 28-1/2, the Hope boys are taking it on the chin like a great many other folks but they will get a lot of kick out of this Christmas from knowledge that they have helped the other fellow.
