Cliffside, Dec. 18—A complete census of the town has been taken in order that no one will be overlooked when the list for the gifts is made up. One among the several committees appointed in connection with the Community Tree, is the entertainment committee which is composed of the School faculty and the program to be rendered by the school children will be a treat at this community gathering within itself to say the least. All citizens of the town and community are urged to bring special presents for their friends, relatives and sweethearts to be distributed from the tree. There will be a reliable party in charge at the tree all day Friday to see that all special presents are taken care of and finally reach proper destination.
