"Our lusiness Is luilding" SEXTON - OTTOSEN - ALOONA THE OTHER DAY AS I was reading, I came across a phrase thai sticks in my memory all out of context of the main article. It stayed with me while I was watching one of those "adult" westerns on television and it rose up again this morning when I was trying to bring a little order into this very messy house. It haunts me again tonight when I am trying to write a column out of absolutely nothing. The phrase is, "the difference between things as they are and things as they should be." * * * IT SEEMS TO ME THAT THIS phrase, "the difference between things as they are and things as they should be", is a kind of capsule comment on all human existance. This "difference" is what makes us try to do belter and thus the cause of all progress; striving to make up the "difference" and the frustration therein is the basis for 90% of all nervous breakdowns: and the atonemenl for this "difference" is the foundation for our religion. The difference between things as they are and things as they should be is apparent to all but the most obtuse of us in every facet of our lives. For example, hero are some cases where the difference is most apparent: * * * THE WAY IT SHOULD BE: All women are beautiful. The way it. is: Most of us are either lumpy or skinny and in the wrong places. The difference: About 15Vi pounds, give or take a bulge, and it is most apparent when you see the south end of a gal going north, wearing slacks. « * * * THE WAY IT SHOULD BE: The best things in life — air, love and happiness — are free. The way it is: Air costs money to heat or to cool; love doesn't cost anything to fall into, but the upkeep on it is terrific; and happiness is thai Ihing we'd all have if we were making just a little more- money. The difference: For air, the amount of your last gas bill; for love, the bills from Ihe time you bought your girl the first corsage up to the time of the last payment for your youngest child's education; and for happiness, al least in my case, $324.10 more per month. * * * THE WAY IT SHOULD BE: All men are romantic. The way it is: Men are romantic if they haven't got something better to do. The difference: A worry pver a business deal, a fishing trip, 18 holes of golf or being just plain too tired. * * * THE WAY IT SHOULD BE: All homes are neat and clean. The way it is: This house is a gosh awful mess. ' The difference: Four issues of last week's newspapers in. the living room, 1 pop bottle and three orange rinds in the bathroom, the supper dishes in the kitchen sink, a hamper full of dirty laundry, dust on the walls and other differences too numerous to mention. * * * THE WAY IT SHOULD BE: All mothers are saintly. The way it is: Most mothers have almost as many faults as they do virtues. < The difference: Four 'screams at the youngsters in three hcJUrs; too busy talking on the telephone to prepare an adequate breakfast; too preoccupied with other worries to listen to a child's problem; expecting the children to do, not as I do, but as I say. * * * • . THE WAY IT SHOULD BE: Everyone keeps up on world affairs by thoroughly studying the newspapers. The way it is: People pay most attention, to the light details in the current news. The difference: Princess Margaret's wedding. . * * * ' . • THE WAY IT SHOULD BE: All meals are well-cooked, nourishing and well-balanced. The way it is: You kids, eat everything on your plate and keen quiet. The difference: I got home too late. Besides somebody has to eat up these leftovers. * * * THE WAY IT SHOULD BE: All leaders of our country are genuine statesmen. The way it is: People vote for the man with the most popular appeal. , The difference: Eighteen holes of golf. * . * * THE WAY IT SHOULD BE:* God is the center of our lives. The way it is: God gets a little attention a few Sundays out of the year if we don't sleep too late or decide to go fishing. The difference: People spend more for beer, cigarettes and whisky than they give to their churches. * * * THE WAY IT SHOULD BE: All youngsters with superior intelligence receive a college education. The way it is: Youngsters with good intelligence can receive a college education — if they can raise the money. The difference: About $1,000 per year per student. * * * THE WAY IT SHOULD BE: Farmers are rich because we pay such high prices for food. •' The way it is: People pay too much for food, but the farmer doesn't get enough for his produce. The difference: The mark up by the processors between- the farmer and the consumer. * * • THE WAY IT SHOULD BE: Each issue of Woman's World is a little gem of polished prose. The way it is: Each issue of Woman's World is the best I can do at the lime. • ", The difference: The same as the difference in my pay check and that of a writer of a nationally syndicated column. • * * *' ;. THERE WAS A LETTER this week from Mrs Ralph Tingley of Sioux Falls, So. Dakota. She is the former Kathleen Evans of Algona and said she enjoyed the column where I mentioned a visit with our mutual friend, Marion Corey Rekers at June Mawdsley's. She said it made her homesick. Kathleen's father, Dr. Evans, well known here, lives with them. He is now 87 years old and is still doing nicely. They would like to come ip Algona for Memorial Day but they don't know if they can make it. She sent a copy of a Mother's Day article which she used for a reading at'a college tea, and I enjoyed it immensely. * * * .' . THIS WEEK'S RECIPE also comes from Kathleen. It's for Cheese Molded Salad. She said she tried it on the family first so that she can have it for company later. 1 envelope unflavored gelatin J /4 cup cold water \'-i Ib. cream cheese I 3 oz. Blue cheese j Vi cup milk ' Vj teasp. salt 1 cup cream " 1 cup celery, finely diced ¥i cup sliced stuffed olives '/4 cup green pepper, finely cut Sprinkle the gelatin into the water.
