CHRISTIVIAS CHOIR... Junior members of a church choir lift their voices in song during the annual Christmas candleIlght service. Truly, they represent the spirit of Christmas. Quaint Rehearsal Of Christ's Birth Found in Old Carol "Auld Lung Syne" has become such an integral part of our mod- ern New Year's eve that no cele- bration, however gay, would he complete without it. The music sheets for those nos- talgic strains simply say "Robert Burns--Scotch Air," and Robert Burns generally is supposed to have written it after he had set- tted down on a farm and taken himself a wife, following the sweeping success in 1778 of the sec- ond edition of his "Poems." Well and good, but Auld Lang Syne was not exclusively a Burns' product, nor did he claim R to be. In a letter to George Thomson, a publisher, Burns explained: "It is an old song of olden times, which has never been in print. I took it down from an old man's singing." Modern scholarship has discov- ered that Burns was wrong when he told Thomson "Auld Lang Syne" never had been in print. Its refrain, at least, was printed obscurely long before Burns heard his "old man singing." Further, the original song often has been credited to Sir Robert Aytoun (1570-1638). Aytoun was one of the earliest Scots to use the low- land dialect as a literary medium. Multitudes of Americans decended from non-British stock are per- petually,.mystifled by this dialect, nor does it seem to make much sense in the standard English translation. Regardless of its original author and origin, it was Burns who gave "Auld Lang Syne" its immortality. And though the bells now welcome the New Year with joyous peals, symbolizing mankind's hope for a bright future, the nostalgiast of "AuTd Lang Syne" summarizes an adherent reluctance to leave the security and friendship of the past and embark upon a future which, however promising, may not be more pleasant. Thus, it remains a part of the English speaking herit- age to "Drink a cup of kindness yet For Auld Lang Syne." Aladdin r Wayne Hamilton visited his brother. Bob Hamilton, and family at Hardin, Montana over Thanks- giving. The Aladdin Homemakers sur- prised Mr. and Mrs. Ray Hejde in their new home Saturday after- noon.
