Christmas

Christmas

WORDS were given us that we might properly express our thoughts. But to all there comes a time when it is difficult to find the right words.

  • Such a time is Christmas—pa_____ticularly this Chistmas. Tempered with the gratification that the war is being won is our grief over the cost in human lives and the tragedy it brings. It is so difficult to say “Merry Christmas” where there is little but sorrow; where loved ones are absent, and where a certain telegram brings fear to the heart.
  • What we would like to do is to take each of our readers and contributors by the hand and convey our season’s greetings personally. But unfortunately that is impossible and we must resort to cold, unemotional type, Instead of the warm personal touch.
  • And so, to you, and all of the ‘yous’ who make up the great FIRE ENGINEERING Family, we send our greetings and best wishes; in the words of Tiny Tim, Dicken’s immortal character: “God Bless Us, Every

One.”

CHRISTMAS.

CHRISTMAS.

This will be the last issue of FIRE AND WATER ENGINEERING before the great festival of Christmas will be celebrated all over the world. To many it will bring sadness as they look at the vacant chairs and call to mind the members of their families who have gone to the front or are preparing for entering the great struggle for human liberty. To others it will bring joy to know that they had brave sons to lend in such a noble cause. Let us all wish that this Christmas will be the greatest in the history of the world as being the last to witness the great bloodshed now being caused in our fight for democracy.

To our readers we wish all the happiness that the season can afford and many of them.
