Well, this has been a very miscellaneous week, .sii for ;i change. I'm noinn to try -a miscellaneous column. ONE OF THE EASIEST WAYS I know of to be miscellaneous is to KO through other publications and swipe stories. If you think %oiir husband is hard to get along with, you might be reassured by this story I read in the midweek letter of a local church. This wife had gone to all sorts of trouble to make her husband a nice breakfast. He ordered onmge juice, grits. 2 pieces of lightly browned toast, jam, and two eggs — one fried sunny-side up and the other, scrambled. After he finished eating, the wife timidly asked how he liked his breakfast. Me replied, "I a ness it was o. k. But why did you go and scramble the wrong egg?" o * * » THERE ARE ALL SORTS OF POLITICAL STORIES going around during this election year. I don't know any. However, I did got a glimpse of the other side of the political coin the other night when, in the line of duly, I dropped in at the Republican Rally. The -editor who assigned me to the job asked if I thought I could write an unbiased story. I said I would try, but unfortunately I got la the Rally so late I couldn't even write a biased one! * * * * THE SPEECHES WERE ALL BUT over when I arrived, but I was struck with one thing. The very same issue that is proclaimed lily while by the democrats is described as ink black by the republicans: and the issue that is ink black to the democrats is lily while to the republicans with seldom a shade of either light or dark gray. And each shouts equally loud about it. To someone as gullible as I am, Ihis can be quite confusing. * * * * WE ARE TOLD BY BOTH PARTIES to drop our prejudices when we get to the polls. This is not possible, at least this side of Utopia. Even such a broad-minded person as I am (and you, too, maybe) is swayed a little by inconsequential things. For example, I like Kennedy because he is the best looking; while I admire Nixon's rise to fame as a poor boy without a Daddy's fortune. I think Jackie Kennedy is prettier than Pat Nixon, but I wish Jackie would get a new hair-do. I admire Pat Nixon's helping her husband in his campaign but I understand Jackie's having to stay home while waiting for her new baby. » * * * WHAT WORRIES ME IS THAT, while there are multitudes ot people a lot smarter about politics than I am; there are probably just as many people who are lots dumber. And the dumb persons vote counts just as much as the smart ones. That, it seems to me, is where both the strength, and some of the weakness, of a democracy lies. The alternative to this — a dictatorship — is unthinkable. But it certainly would make voting lots simpler. * « * * WHICH REMINDS ME OF THE comrade at a Communist 1 gathering who spoke out to the chairman. "My dear comrade", he said, "There is one thing I would like to find out. What happens to my unemployment check when we overthrow the capitalist government?" • 1 * * • - » • * . •-•• .. ••< VICKY ANDERSON. DAUGHTER of Mr and Mrs Jerry Anderson reached the age this year when she can become a Brownie^in the Girl Scouts. She was all excited about the event. She told her little sister, "Just think." Tomorrow I get to be a Brownie. Little Sister replied, "Oh? Is Mamma going to frosting you?" * * * * CHURCH AND WOMEN'S CLUBS are noted for getting things done. Oren Arnold, columnist for several magazines tells the story about the bus load of church women who were killed in an accident. Naturally, they were all slated for heaven, but there was some remodeling going on up there so St. Peter asked if they'd mind waiting down below for a while. After five days Satan came up to ask St. Peter if he wasn't ready for the ladies yet. "They're driving, me crazy", Old Nick complained. "What with their chicken suppers,' rummage and bake sales, and bazaars, they're only $14.75 short of, having my place air-conditioned!" * * * * . • ANOTHER GROUP OF LADIES who get things done are the: gals of the School Food Service. It used to be called hot lunch, but it has grown beyond that to a real profession, organized at county, state and national levels. Kossuth has the first organized county- association in the state so far as is known. Schools serve more meals to more people every day than all the commercial establishments put together! * * * * I HAD "HOT LUNCH" AT Algona Community Schools recently, and I stayed afterward to visit the kitchen and talk with the ladies. The day I was there they served 651 people, all in a little over an hour in a set-up that was designed to serve a maximum of 350 people. Each worker has his own specified job, and it goes very, smoothly. The kitchen is as clean as a hospital lab, only it smells nicer. * * * * BY STATE LAW, EVERY SCHOOL lunch program, to get the ' approximate 15 '/4 per cent state aid, must serve what is called a "Type A" lunch. This, as I remember it, must consist of 2 ounces of protein food — meat, fish, eggs, and/or nuts, beans and peas, Vfe cup fruit or vegetable, butter, a designated amount of whole wheat or enriched bread and milk. They don't require a dessert, but according to what I heard at the county meeting at Burt the other night, all Kossuth schools throw in a plain or fancy dessert for good measure. * * * * THE KIDS AT OUR HOUSE DON'T always take "hot lunch" because I have to cook for Father anyway, and somebody has to eat up the left-overs from the previous evening's meal. But 'I can't cook at home as nice a lunch as they serve at school for 30 or 35 cents, and the stuff we get here isn't always well-enough balanced to be a "Type A" lunch. And the days when, I work outside the home, school lunch is one of my major blessings. * * * * MOST HOMEMAKERS ARE plagued often or occasionally, not so much by cooking, as what to cook. Instead of a this week's recipe, let's consider some of the menue's our kids get at Hot Lunch. They have been proven some of the recent favorites, Oven fried chicken thighs, mashed potatoes, bvittered green beans, bread and butter, butter cake with lemon sauce. Milk. Meat loaf, buttered parsley potatoes, tomatoe wedges, bread and butter, pear half and milk. Oven fried fish sticks. (According to our kids, "Nobody can make better fish sticks than Miss Comfort)", tartar sauce, buttered parsley potatoes, bread and butter, fruit jello salad, cantaloupe, milk, Escalloped potatoes and ham, cottage cheese, tossed fruit salad, bread, butter and peanut butter, brownie, milk. Can you do better at home for 30 or 35 cents. I can't. _ —GRACE. __ Fenton, and Dave Weber, son ql Mr and Mrs Dave Weber of Bun- croft.
