Y Upp*f Hit Mdfott Tnurtday, K •^m^»,^m^^Kyys&»,&s&T^^^ixiM^imxiifmKmssi^ THREE YOUNGSTERS AT OUR HOUSE few fto interested in Fairy Stories. For some time now they h*w ail pns fetted the stories they read by themselves and although the feooJts can be fictional, they have outgrown Snow White and the Sewn Dwarfs. They get more kick Out of Maverick's adventures on TV than they do out of Jack and his GSant Killing. However, their mother still likes fairy stories. The Princess is always beautiful, the Prince, charming and virtue wins out in the end. And when the people in the fairy stories get married they always live happily ever after and don f t have to wrestle with problems like paying the light bill and Wiping up Ihc mud the kids track in. JUST BECAUSE WE NO LONGER READ Cinderella at our house is no sign fairy stories ere not in evidence. Why, just the other night Pop came home late and told me a real good one. If I hear any more fairy stories like that one, Father isn't going to live happily ever after for very long! THEN TOa THERE ARE TIMES around here, when I think we are reenacting some of the childhood tales. The Old Woman In The Shoe, for instance. We live in a conventional wood house, not a shoe and we have only three youngsters. But sometimes that's "so many children. I don't know What to do." So, "to some I give canned soup, without any bread; and cut off their TV and send them to bed." * * 4 THE STORY OF THE LITTLE RED Hen has a present-day counterpart at our house. The Little Red Hen, as you all know, was the gal who had trouble getting a little help with her bread making. "Who will help me plant the wheat, grind the flour, shape the loaves, etc.", the Little Red Hen asked. The Duck, the Cat, and the Horse, each 'in his turn said, "No, not I", to the questions. But when it came to eating the bread, they were all there clamoring, "I will!" At OUK ho\ise I ask, "Who will help me wash the clothes,, do the dishes, sweep the floor, etc. so I can go to. work and earn a little extra money?" Bill, Mary Ann and Jean, each in his turn say. "No, not I". But when it qames to helping spend the check, they are all there saying. "I will!" The Little Red Hen in the > story was more firm than I am. She said, "No, you weren't around to help when I wanted you to work. I will eat the bread myself I" I end up grumbling about the lack 'of cooperation, but the,check gets spent without "eating" any- of it all by myself. SOME DAY. NOT SO MANY YEARS IN the future, I suppose we shall have a partial reenactment of the Red Riding Hood story. Our girls both nave red Coats and they go to visit their grandmother, but so far they haven't' been stopped by any wolves' 'on the wav. The day will come when there may be wolves around — probably in beat up jalopies — but I do trust that our girls will at least be smarter' thfan Little Red Riding Hood. She was so stupid .she couldn't even tell a wolf from her own Grandma! , * * * , • ,.-•••> ' " CINDERELLA IS A LOVELY STORY, but it is still <a fairy story. What gal nowadays has a Fairy Godmother who will turn her blue jeans into a fancy ball gown in time to go to a big party? - Mostly, we have, to take our seven-years-agp dress, get out the steam iron, let out some seams and wear 'it.'But the last time' 1 1 went out for-a big evening, I was home by midnight ,iust like , Cinderella and on these cold winter rnornings," our'Pontiac turns into, a "pumpkin" just like the Golden Coach; The mice in our basement could never be persuaded to turn into horses and I ddn't have a single wicked step-sister. My Prince Charming, never brings , around a glass slipper for me to •' try to get my number eight foot' into, but the kids -do seem to be forever trying on shoes. And' 'if ,we would let them use prbfanity, I'm sure we would 'hear' them say, "Oh God,- Mother, these slippers are too small! You've gotta buy ftie some new ones." I 1 . * ' * * THE STORY OF GOLDILOCKS AND THE, Three Bears isn't likely to be reenacted around here. Our kids are brunettes, and'al- though then 1 are .three of them, they have rench'ed'the stage of modesty when they no longer run around bare. There are times, though , when in'the process of exchanging over-night visits, I anr not .quite certain who I will find in the upstairs• bedrooms, buti.T am reasonably sure-it will not-be Goldilocks. We as ai family never go out for pre-breakfast walks as the Three Bears did — -we have , .all we can do to roll out of bed. But I'm sure I'm as grumpy as *an j; Mamma Bear when I get breakfast. And if Littlest Bear starts complaining; "Somebody ate up all my Wheaties", I, can 'reply;- "SKUt up! I haven't given them to you yet," , : . IN THE FAIRY STORIES, there was a kid'named Jack, He'took . his poor mother's cow to'market, was slicked out of it and-came , home with a'handful of beans. This seemed like a real poor bargain to Jack's mother, and I fpr one, don't blame her a bit. She'got so mad she threw the beans out of the window and that wouldibp -my sentiments exactly, Of course, in her case the-beans grew,to a-godd- *„** cfaiv n ^ tu« big drip Jack climbed on it and endedTup richl LAKOTA Sophie Eltsworlh I»ti*feff«H*ij Circle* Pmi»t*rtan Circles met Thurs«£»y\ Miriam Circle met at tlie Vats- at Carmen Lewis with Em- yi-t* Smith as co-hostess.
