This is the WUIS Christmas Archives... for Tuesday... December 3rd. I'm Rich Bradley.
In 1972... December 3rd was a Friday and the Illinois State Register featured a front page photo... of a small boy depositing his letter to Santa... in a special mailbox identified as being for "North Pole Letters ONLY."
Three-year-old Karen Mosley was selected as Auburn's princess Snowflake, along with Prince Tiny Tim portrayed by Robert McCarthy, also age 3. The couple will adorn the town's Christmas parade the next afternoon
