Dec. 24, 1980: The nation’s Christmas tree is lit for 417 seconds, one for each day the 52 hostages have been held in captivity in Iran…. San Fernando Police Officer Dennis Webb is shot to death while questioning a young man about the robbery of a 7-Eleven. The killer evidently took Webb’s patrol car and abandoned it eight miles away.

And from Kenya, Charles T. Powers files a first-rate piece of writing on the future of college graduates in Kenya.

On the jump, examples of The Times covers: the Morning Final, Late Final and home edition.
