(la.) Uppef fie* MatnM Tuesday, April 26, i960 SUNDAY. APH1L 24. WAS NATTOftAL Mothers-In-Law Day. I didn't quite catch on to the fact until it was too late to alert ypu, but I can't see why we shouldn't pay a little attention to the event now, two days later. Part of this lapse is the fault of none other than the governor of Iowa, Herschel Loveless. Some years he officially proclaims Mothers-In-Law Day a week Or so in advance so 1 can let you know. If he is doing it this year it's after I've written the column, so that lets me off the hook. • •. « « i 1 HAVE ALWAYS ENJOYED A pretty good relationship with my mother-in-law. Never once have we come to out-and-out blows. In fact, once in a while, when I get peeved at her son, and my husband, I threaten to go home, not to Mother, but to my mother-in- law. She raised him and she knows what 1 have to put up with. And if worse comes to worse, we can always put our heads together, cty on each other's shoulders, and blame all our troubles on things that are, "just like a man". We are agreed on this point. * * *< MY HUSBAND, IN TURN. ALSO has a mother-in-law. She is, of course my mother and she knows about Father's problems with me because I lived with her for over 20 years. When Pop gets mad at me, he has-never threatened to go live with his mother-in-law, but he has made several remarks about that nice room she rents out, and frequently he gets quite glassy-eyed thinking about his mother- in-law's cooking. This is especially apparent when we have canned beans and weiners here for the second night straight. * < • MOST OF OUR RELATIVES, on both sides, live right here in Algona, and we have never had the trouble of a mother-in-law coining to visit and wearing out her welcome. In fact, with the couple of spry chickens we have for mothers-in-law, we have a hard time getting them to light long enough between engagements for a good chat. We love both of them, although I suppose they, too, have their faults, but never have I found in either one of them the characteristics that make up the typical mother-in-law of jokes and cartoons. * * * A FEW YEARS FROM NOW Ifclan to do a bit of experimenting on the subject of mothers-in-law. By that time, I think one or all of our kids will be married and I'll be a mother-in-law myself. I plan on being a mother-in-law to end all mothers-in-law. I am going to tell my daughter-in-law how to wear her hair, how to bring up my grandchildren, and how to not use so blamed many expensive ingredients when she cooks. I am going-to nag at my sons-in-law about the kind of clothes they wear and about skattering ashes on the rug. 1 am going to be thoroughly obnoxious, 'and after everybody admits that I am, I'm going to admit it was all part of a noble experiment. For I mean to test out the question of whether any normal human being can be a mother-in-law like the ones long maligned in jokes. If I fail, I shall have succeeded, for it has long been my theory that mothers-in-law are just as nice people ,as mothers. Only they are on the other side of the family. * * * THE RECENT MAIL HAS BEEN interesting, to say the least. One letter was from a 17 year old girl who says she is a senior in high'school and signs herself, "Pee Wee". It could very well be that somebody is pulling rny leg with this, but here are exerpts from it to see what you think. Pee Wee writes, "I am going steady with a very nice boy. I don't know if I love him or not, but I am going to marry him in September right after I graduate. Do yot know why? Simply because I'm afraid to go out into the world or my own. I'm always being told by my parents, 'Your sense o values is terrible' Maybe they are, but don't I have to make therr to suit my own personality." * * * PE2 WEE GOES ON TO SAY she needs the .security of thi: teenage boy and though she may regret it later on, she believes this is the reason for high school marriages.' She says, "I don't havt the right or the courage to tell what I know about my unstable basis for a teenage marriage. Thank you for taking the time to read my letter. I hope someday you will read more of these carefully hidden teanage secrets and know how to answer them. It helps to tell someone." * » * WELL. PEE WEE. IF YOUR letter is sincere, and there is always the chance that it might be, I hesitate to give advice to anybody lor two simple reasons. (1) I have three children who are not reared yet and heaven only knows what they'll get into or what I, as a parent am do-.n* now or have done in the past that will someday be thrown up to me. (2) I haven't been successful enough at solving the pro- LiL'ms ot my own life to be qualified to tell others what tc do Annual Senior Girls Tea At LuVerne, May 10 LuVerne — The Progressive Woman's club were Monday evening guests of Mrs Verne Daley The program, given by Mrs Earle Hartselman, was a panel discussion.

Marriage f ; ;:-i:s you more problems, not fewer, and you nead every bit of a-.d ^experience you can get to solve them. As for whether or i.o: yi u lovo this teenage boy you plan to marry, that isn't so much the- prob:cm tor a Ijl of much older people have questioned that v.-l-.-jn they marry, but a few years of maturity gives you both a l-i^tr ciiance tor lovy to grow.
