"Editor's Note: Once again Christopher-the-Cat and Little Man hop into the basket to join me in wishing all readers and contributors to this column a MERRY, MERRY CHRISTMAS. I am deeply grateful to all who have helped with the Ozarks Wastebasket. I wish it were possible for me to write or to say a personal word of greeting to each of you. However, you do have my great thanks and the sincere wish that you will have HAPPY HOLIDAYS. Lucile Morris Upton." Daily News, December 2, 1952

The photograph is part of the News Leader collection located in From the Darkroom.
