"Mayor Patience Latting turned Santa's helper today as she helped city firemen pack gifts of fruit, nuts and candy for the mayor's Christmas party Saturday.  The party for Oklahoma City elementary school children starts at 9 a.m. in Civic Center Music Hall.  Twirlers, skaters, tumblers and Santa Claus himself will be on hand for the annual event."
