The dictionary defines nepotism as, "Favoritism, especially governmental patronage, extended toward nepUews'o? other relatives?'. The word itself comes from the Latirt, ftepds of nephew, but the cases in the public e^fejlght how seetti to run more toward sons and wives. I DON'T KJfOW WHEmt/dR NOT that ydifng college student who helped Tits father, itf hi* spare time was justified in drawing $12,000 a year and I have nd opinion on how much a good secretary to a state legislator, l-elated or not, should draw. But it kind of does me good to find out about the wives. Some of .them are doing just what wives have always done — help their husbands and work like the •dickens at their -regular jobs of housework, community affairs and children. And now, nt least some of them, arc getting " paid substantially for HI OLIVE HERBST MY attention to an article in the e current Reader's Digest. It's- entitled, "The Hardest-Working Women in the World", which according to the author. James A. Michener, is the American mother of young children. He says that in Asia, for example, much cf the heavy construction work Is done by women. In India, women have to hnul the wash to the river, carry back water for cooking and then labor the rest of the day In the rice fields, But when these gals get home they are throCigh for the day. Some other female has taken care of the children, has done the marketing, cooking, dishwashing and mending. * ' * * , ACCORDING TO MR MICHENER, none of these foreign gals haVe It so tough -as does the American housewife. She Works much harder at a much more complex job. The overseas women aren't involved in community life otltside the home, they do not serve as Den Mothers, collect money for charities, advance the political life, maintain an above-average standard of personal attractiveness and mental alertness and at the same time take an Important role in their husband's business life, , ' . * * * BACK IN THE DAYS WHfiN I was the mother of "young children I thought I was real busy. Bu^l it seems to me, I found more time then for community activities- and the things Mr Michener calls, "creative living" — writing, music, and entertaining company, than I do now when our youngsters are older and less underfoot. Lots of it may have been done to get away from the kids for a few hours, but some of it was done in spite of them. The real load began several months ago when I started working outside the home. Mr Michener is right when he says, "American wives and mothers are burdened with) a work loa'd that would stagger their 'underprivileged' Asian sisters, but I am finding out something that has been going on for a long time — the gals who stay at home with the dishes and diapers have it a lot easier than the working mother- job holder-housewife. * * * IF YOU TAKE A MENTAL TRIP up and down the street in the stores and offices of Algona, I doubt if you'll find very many establishments without at least one employee who is also either a mother, a homemaker or both. I hadn't thought so much about it until just lately, but these gals are winning more and more of my admiration. ,And because I haven't got my own Work schedule very well in hand as yet, I've been doing a little research on how these paragons .

IF A WOMAN IS AN IMMACULATE housekeeper, she'd better ..el about working outside the home unless she can afford a denning woman and lots of labor-snving appliances. You can't do nn nil-out Spring or Fall hoitseclenning on a Saturday afternoon nmi a Sunday. Kids cnn be trained to help about the house, and, so they tell me, even can husbands. But they have their own infnlrs to take care of and can't be counted upon for too much. So, things get a lot dirtier than moat of us like. * * * DEN MOTHERING, GIRL SCOUT LEADING, collecting for charities and other community affairs that women traditionally do nro hard work. If you put hnlf ns much energy into a job downtown, you get pnicl for It, but because something has to give, a working mother has to forego lots of it. It's n pity, loo, because working with young people is not only fun, it lota you in on the knowledge Hint your own kids nron't much worse than the rest of them. And you get n lot of visiting with your neighbors done if you ore out on the Red Cross drive nnywny. SOME ESSENTIAL PARTS OF homemaking can't be eliminated even if Mmnhin is working. These, according to me, boil down to these things — time with the kids, cooking the meals find shopping for the groceries, washing, ironing, praying and at lenst some rending. A lot of working mothers I know accomplish much more than that. My hat is off to them! * • 4 HOWEVER A PERSON CAN'T eliminate too many of the so- called "non-cssentlnls" from her schedule. I was reminded of Ihis recently by Betty Schutler who wrote this week nbout the Community Concert drive currently in progress. Betty quotes Chnrles Dnrwin who wrote, "If I had my life to live over again I would have made it a rule to rend some poetry and listen to some music at least every week. The loss of these tastes Is a loss of happiness, and may possibly be injurious to the intellect, and more probably to the moral character, by enfeebling the emotional part of our nature." * * * PEOPLE WORKING ON THE CONCERT drive me trying fo see to it thai everybody in Ihc county has a chance to hoar at least a little good music. Most of these are busy'homcmnkers and mothers and n few of them nre also employed outside the home, it also involves some cooperation on the part of husbands and families. * * * DOWN AT THE JOHN HAYS household, John did the cooking the first day when plnns for the drive got* underway while Drive Chairman, Thelma planned and conferred. Beverly Mnwdsley, the new secretary this year, put in hours nt the typewriter and mimeograph machine, one night working until two o.m. Her husband, Dick cooperated by keeping track of their little son, Craig and running countless errands. At Tilonkt), Florence Reynolds not only keeps up on her hobbles of antiques, baking wedding cakes and singing, she sells about 50 concert memberships every year. THE CONCERT ASSOCIATION is in its tenth year here and after having • weathered some lean yours, has finally become accepted as a venerable community institution. * » * THIS WEEK'S RECIPE is for Simple Simon Fish Pie and its good for Lenten meals or for any time for that matter. 2Vi cups cooked rice 2 tablespoons chopped parsley * 1, 1 pound can salmon, flaked 2Vi cups medium white sauce salt and pepper Vi teasp. celery seed VB leasp. nutmeg 2 tablsp. lemon juice 1 cup grated American cheese Mix rice and parsley.

The gas flame does,the rest, reducing the residue to a fine ash. (This ash. by the way, makes an excellent fertilizer for vegetable and flower gar* dens.) The ash collection cap- < acily depends upon the size of the incinerator. One A.G.A. approved model, can accom- odaie from two to four weeks accumulation of ashes, and will burn from one to four and a half bushels of garbage and trash at one time. * * * -K "Mother, do you think it is possible for a man to be married to the same woman • for fifty years?"

That evening, the wife of the eldest said. "Well, Joe, what luck today?" "Well. Sam struck it rich anyhow," said Joe. "On his first call, a fellow took him up to a desk marked 'Treasurer' and told him he was now treasurer of the corporation." "What about Bill?" asked the wife. "Bill got a break, too," answered Joe. "A man showed him a room labeled 'Vice President* and that's the job they gave him." "Wonderful." said the wife. "But what happened to you?" "Congratulate me, mama;" said Joe quizically. "At , last I'm a gentleman." * * * -K Irate Golfer: "You must be the world's worst caddie!" ' " Caddie: "Hardly. That would be too much of a coincidence." * * < * -K . Today, over 30.0,000 families are enjoying the "luxury" of low-cost gas incineration >„, while an additional 75,000 families a year are installing gas- incinerators in their homes. As more and more families turn to gas incineration to solve their garbage and trash removal problems, entire communities will benefit in better health, cleaner cities, lower taxes, and increased civic pride. Users of gas incinerators are better neighbors, better citizens, and. of course, happier homeowners. * * Marjlynn Harjp WILTGEN JEWELERS f^pw ^^^ m^^. m^^^^Q ^^ff^ ^^W|i^ ^^^^^p 9^P -^^^ •- - •, j^ff^ ^w^^H Mw •Hw ^^HJH wl^HBI Mp^pp fflpi pH|&^HHRr • A couple of vats at a beer brew* ery in Milwaukee were struck' by lightning in a f Jaih starro last syrn^ mer.
