Girls of The Review Tribune business office were hostesses to the advertising and editorial departments at a Christmas luncheon served in the offices at noon today.

Kaufman of the editorial staff. A three-course luncheon was served Wednesday at the buckeye plant of the Knowles, Taylor and Knowles pottery in honor of James Wilson, foreman. Places were arranged for Mesdames Mary Debee, Mary Coleman, Kathryn Smith, Lettie Brown, Anna Hoover, Hannah Miller, Sadie Beckwith, Effie Cavitt, Mabel Groubert, and Grace Mountford. The honor guest was given a silk umbrella. In all walks of life, in homes of the poor as well as the more fortunate, the Yuletide spirit will be exemplified tomorrow. And thanks to the thoughtfulness of the churches and their many societies, fraternal and patriotic organizations, and other units, Santa Claus will overlook no homes in the East Liverpool district. There will be joy in the mansion, for happiness will be spread in the form of bountiful dinners, and gifts of love. Say it with flowers, or say it with socks, Say it with jewelry, candy or clocks, Say it with poetry, say it with art, But the best way to say it, is right from the heart. "MERRY CHRISTMAS"

Note - this news clipping was given to me by a dear friend who is weeding out her genealogy things. There are many clippings that are not date, although they contain many names and useful information. Thus, I will be posting them without the dates and some without publication names. Where it is present, I will provide it.
