One Of the bift-tirat-ttMEtt* Ih.the.paBer Iowa defends upofl used this gimmick for a column last week, , *j-'i : $&' MS* fflffi&S 6H tHfi list of tniflgs' 1 adore is babiesidttat about any kind of baby is enchanting to me — the squally,, little velvet sitinned ones" you get 6ut at St. AM hdsoital, the slightly copper colored ones we sea on the reservation up by Cass bake, the curty*topped, chocolate variety so prevalent in the south, and the .dnes sitting in high chairs gooping Pablum' all over the kitehent.ofm'y fflehdts. I love' babies' fat little., bottoms, those adorable; druses at- the base of thett ( nedks, the dimples' in their hands ana,tM way they look at you with those wide-eyed innocent expressions, but which at the same .time, make them look as if they had all the -Wisdom of the world but just aren't telling it. " 1 i AM INTRIGUED' M olr> lAolES* i like 1 sparkiy-eyed, witty ones, wno_ha'v6 had lots' of experience in living, tne best, but old ladies who are Sweet, demure and very lavendar-and-olcMace lady-like, are mighty, nice too. It's a mistake, I tftiM f&f tfto's&of us wnp are no longer in the first bloom of youth, Jo look back longingly to our .teens as the best years of our Jives. The bfes't days may sfim be ahead — when we .get to be old ladies! * * * OfcD LADIES CAN, GET BY WITH practically anything. If they forget -things, even if they do it on purpose, they are excused because they are getting ,on in years. It tney are on the helpless side, people protect them. If tney are grumpy, we call them crusty but'witn a heart of gold, li an older woman wants to say anything that comes^imo her nead sne can get by with it because she is an old lady and she can be known as a cnaracter and get invited to ail sorts ol parties just so people can hear what she's going to say next. It she wants to stay, nome from a party, she can ao so simply because sne is an old ; 'laay. An old -lady can even'get by with flirting a littie and people .ithi'nK she is very cute. I mean to have all sorts of iun when I'm an ol'd lady and if things keep up the way they have lately, I'll be one pretty soon. I D9N'T'VERY MUCH LIKE GETTING UP in the, morning or going to' bed at night. I detest people who are all*the time talking about their children when I want to talk about mine. I anr uncomfortable with women who talk too much about fashion, hair styles and little numbers' they picic up at' a bargain ($49.50), especially wherrl-am wearing a nand-me-down ($7.95) and haven't 1 been able to pin my hair up lor the past three days. And I am irked by people who talk about going out to,. "The Club", as if /it were the only social Organization in Algona. , • , ' ,, •> * * . * • : I 'ADORE A RED -HAT. A red hat makes me feel younger than I am, prettier than my mirror reflects, and more flirtatious tria'tt I dare I, had a red, hat when I was courting and I wore a red hat wK6n I was married; and my husband gave me one in his "most imaginative Christmas gitt to date. If I had: all of -my red hats,'; I'd -have a tangible reminder of lots of the happy occurahces of my life. I haven't had one ior two or three years, out I -think Tm- going' to have to buy, me, a red hat!, . * • * .,; * I DISLIKE THE LYRICS. TO MOST OF THE POPULAR rock- and-roll songs. They don't make sense and if I am just listening to it, the "music" makes' me nervous. But if the juke box is playing a real crazy number and I can snag somebody into dancing so I can jump around and "make a fool of myself, I'll have to admit yoU can't beajt the rhythm, .of.,,the;, ,p'Qpular,'tfight .now.- One 'encouraging ^.f act IS- : that they are taking , so many of the lovely songs popular in my hey-day • and palming them off as new, on the current generation. We ;had gorgeous music in those days and just hearing some of those tunes of' the '30's makes me nostalgic. For instance, you can't beat a tune like, "Flat Foot Floogy With A Floy Floy".; ' • i ,•"'.','' ,,•!.'*, * . * I AM IMPATIENT WITH PEOPLE WHO give 'as an excuse for joining" lodges, clubs, and even churches, that it is "good for business". It seems to" me that it would be very boring if you had to be nic'e to only the people who could do you some good. Of course, lots of people have, "done us some good", but I like them in the first place. 1 squirm- when people'say tney hate others simply because they are colored, or Jewish or Catholic or Protestant. 'If tney want to nate because a /person did them a dirty deal, or was unkind to iheir grandmother, \ or made a pass at their wife, it's allright . with tne. But not for something over which none of us has control. -,; * * * • I AM A GREAT ADMIRER OF THE graceful compliment. You know,*, the kind that, are .more flattering than we deserve, but schmaltzy, enough to include some of the qualities we wish we had. Flattery is fun when both the giver and the receiver is not too serious. If a complimenter lays it on too thick and too often, he defeats his purpose; if, a gal truly believes everything that is said to her in a casual moment, the guys are going to stop saying them, I ALSO ADMIRE A NICE, HIGH well-browned meringue topping on a pie, the right amount of seasoning in a potato salad and a stew where ; the njeat is lovingly browned arid the vegetables not over-cooked. I can't stand buttermilk, eggs that have been cooked at too high a temperature, weak coffee, green tea or milk that has been in the same refrigerator with a cantaloupe. <k * * I LOVE THE SOUND OF AN ORGAN when the stops are pulled way ou't arid the contrast when the music modulates. I am enthralled by a gpod vocal solo and appalled by a worn out soprano who makes so much effort to sing that , the cords in her neck ' stand out. A really bellowing baritone is not my idea of pleasure, either. I like to hear the whisper of the wind in the trees, certain voices saying, "Mom, I'm home", chimes on a Sunday morning and the purr of a cat. Thursday, March ft, ono (lo.)

It replaces two wooden churns that had been in Meet God Each Sunday in Church! When any of us, regardless of denomination, "go to church" we go to worship God in His house. In the Episcopal Church we worship God by obeying Christ's command to "Do This," that is, to remember His Sacrificial Death and to receive the Holy Commun-* iori. The Episcopal Church is a sacramental church. We stand squarely in the stream of life that flows from our Lord Jesus Christ down the centuries. The Episcopal Church not only teaches that God is always with us, but also gives us the assurance of His Presence in the Sacrament of the Holy Communion. Ours is a believing church. Our Lord said, "This is my Body . ." — "This is my Blood .." «— "do this in remembrance of Me." We believe He means what He said. There's no attempt at lengthy explanations. We accept the fact that God's ways are beyond our power of comprehension. So, when the priest, following Christ's injunction, consecrates the bread and wine, we accept the fact of his REAL presence in die Holy Communion. We glory in the fact that we are in the presence of God and can receive His Very Life into our souls through this Sacrament. We invite you to join us — today — in meeting God in the Episcopal' Church near you. THE EPISCOPAL CHURCH WELCOMES YOU ST.

RAINY DAY IDEA With March thaws and April showers ahead, maybe this will help: Hang a plastic shoe bag at your entrance, as a storage place for the family's rubbers and boots. This way the floor is free of wot footwear. It'll save you "wiping up" taskSt BREAKFAST PROBLEM Does your family go from one extreme to an- bther? One morning when you oversleep, everyone gathers 'round and counts seconds as the coffee brews. Next morning, you feel guilty and preparfc'WM'st early... but no one's ready to eat just yet! With a new gas range, these exiremes won't matter. Fpr instance, you can fry eggs at 7:00. The burner-with-a-brain will cut down the heat automatically, and keep them warm and tender till 8:00! Folks at your local gas company and gas appliance dealer can tell you even more about gas ranges loaded with automatic featuresl PAINT PROTECTOR When Spring^ fever hits, I get the urge to freshen things op with paint. Here's a good tip to remember when you're painting (especially areas above your head): Cut a rubber ball in half. Make a slit in one of the halves and insert it in the paint-brush handle, "cup" side up. This will save you from having "painted" hair, hands, and clothes. Less drips on the floor, too. © Northern Natural Gas Company, Omaha, Nebraska NAIL KEG CATCHALLS Ask your hardware man for empty wooden nail kegs and transform them into any of these "usefuls": Paint and decorate; top with a round cushion. You'll have a cute hamper-stool for the .children's room! Matching wastebasket can be made from a smaller keg. Might be used for a handy umbrella holder, too. STORED SUNSHINE The gas industry continues to discover more "stored sunshine" in deeper wells, under coastal Waters and in unexplored fields. Every day, the flow of natural gas assures you of a continuous supply regardless of storms or bad, weather. From field to burner tip, natural gas is available in any amount you wish to use. Yesterday's pipe dreams have become reality, as more and more gas is piped to homes and industry at a cost everyone can afford! Your pipeline supplier, Northern Natural Gas Company sends this miracle fuel to your local gas company, who sends it to you for comfort, convenience, and carefree livingl entertained a number of relatives service for nearly 25 years.
