COOKIN Items' From Mere & Thete Sister: "How's that waterproof, shock-proof, unbreakable, anti-magnetic watch I gave you for Christmas?" Brother; 'Oh, I lost it." The little old man was riding the ,bfis and it was obvious to everybody that his shoes were too tight and were hurting him. A friendly, woman said to him: "I know those shoes hurt you. Why do you wear them?" "Well, lady," he said, "I'm alone in the world. Nobody loves me. Women don't pay me no mind. The doctor won't let me smoke or drink or eat what I want. The only pleasure I get in the world is when I get home and take off these @&%* &*@ shoes." •K * * * New homes heated with gas don't have to be limited to the conventional basement installation, says the builder of today's homes. Modern automatic gas furnaces and air' conditioning units, compactly and handsomely styled, come :n a variety of colors, harmonize nicely with almost all color , schemes and design motifs, hence can be installed in almost any room • in the house. -K -K * -K "Do you really think a woman would believe you if you told her she was the first woman you had ever kissed?" "Yes, provided that you were the first liar she had ever met." •K -K -K ,-K The Sunday School class was composed of four-year- olds. The Teacher asked, "Do any of you remember who St. Matthew was?" No answer. "Well, Do any of you remember who St. Mark was?" Still no answer. "Surely someone must remember who Peter was?" The little faces were full of interest, but the room remained quiet. Finally a small voice broke the silence: "I fink he was a wabbit!" -K -K * * Superior performance and over-all economy of gas heating units make them attractive to prospective home . builders and buyers. .Fully "• automatic" g-as"iurhaees n %eai;'''"'' filter and circulate the air, ^ even humidify it when climatic conditions require* Clock-type thermostats guarantee maintenance of even heat during the day, automatically cut back temperatures at night, thus saving fuel and safe-guarding health in a completely automatic 24-hour cycle. * * * * Ten year old Johnny applied for a job as a grocery boy in the summer. The grocer wanted a serious-minded boy, so he put him to a little test. "What would you do with a million dollars?" the grocer asked. "Oh," answered Johnny, "I wasn't expecting quite that much to start." * * * * A British executive of the BBC was particularly impressed with the slickriess and perfection of American TV during a receril visit. In answer to his questions, a stagehand explained that mistakes simply were not tolerated. "For instance," said the stagehand, "in a show I was working on last night, the script called for me to rush over and sprinkle tomato sauce over an actor who was supposed to have been shot. Unfortunately, a camera swung around unexpectedly and caught me pouring the tomato spuce on the actor." "Terrible!" exclaimed the British- er. ''What did you do?" "What could I do?" answered the stagehand. " I ate him. ' ****„• The gas industry, following modern building trends, has developed a remarkable unit which combines heating, cooling, and air conditioning on a year-round basis. This is the all-year air conditioner, which cools, cleans, circulates, humidifies or tie-humidifies the air during the summer, and takes on the winter healing and air-conditioning job with the throwing of a single small switch. -tt -K -K * Advertising students at Long Island University were quizzing Chas. F. Adams, vice-president of Detroit agency MacManus, John & Adams, and a well-known name in the ad business. "Can you tell us how to get p job, Mr Adams?" one student asked. "It's simple, came the reply. "When I decided to embark on an advertising career, I simply went to the head of one of the nation's largest advertising agencies and asked: "Dp you suppose you could find a place in the organization for me. Dad?' " Spare a thought for the modern mother with no daughter to guide her. * * * * Try Cookin' With GAS Swea& Eagle By Mrs Emil Larson I HAVE ALWAYS CONSIDERED that the people at our house make up a fairly normal family. We fight once in a while, but most of the time we get along well together. We are constantly on the losing side in the battle against dirt and untidiness, but the health department has not yet issued any injunctions against us. But if we take the people portrayed on the TV commercials as perfectly normal families, oy comparison, the people at our house look like the Jukes or the KalikaK families. * . * * THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TV commercial families and the gang at our house is apparent the very first thing in the morning. On TV, the Mama is out in the kitchen, all cleaned up with her hair combed at seven o'clock. Pop and the kids sit down at the breakfast table, and Mama sings, "Good Morning!", on key too, and the family sings, "Good Morning!" right bacK at her. Then Mama, still in good voice, sings, "What'll you have for breakfast?" and the kids and Pop sing back, "Any kind of cereal's fine with me, long as you spell it the right way." AT OUR HOUSE, MORNINGS ARE more on the bedlam side. Mama is in the kitchen about eight o'clock in her beat-up bathrobe with her hair falling all over her face. She's on the telephone getting the hospital and weather reports for the news and her greeting to the kids when they come to the breakfast table is, "Will you please pipe down so that I can hear?" The kids snarl a bit and then scream, "Aint there anything for breakfast?" Mom shouts back at them, "Drink your juice!" * * * POP STAGGERS INTO THE KITCHEN — he knows better than to try to shave in the morning because both the bathroom and the lavatory are full of kids getting ready for school. Jeanie whines, "Why can't we ever have oatmeal for breakfast around here?" "Okay",' says Mom, "I'll fix oatmeal." But does Mary Ann want oatmeal? No, she wants frcnch toast with syrup on it and she'll fix it herself. Does Bill want oatmeal? No, he wants Krispie Crunchies only there aren't any Krispie Crunchies because Mom bought Shredded Barley Pops instead this week. Does Pop want oatmeal? No, he'll take a glass of tomato juice and have coffee-later. Well, if he wants tomato juice he'll have to go to the basement after it because, all that's up here is orange juice. Mom will eat oatmeal if she has to, to keep it from going to waste but what she'd really like is an egg. There's so much confusion she doesn't bother to eat anything. According to the TV commercials, we aren't a bit normal because nobody sings one single note. ANOTHER WAY OUR FAMILY differs from the ones on the TV commercials is in the matter of dirt. TV Mamas get their floors all cleaned up and boy, do they ever shine. Right after she puts the economy sized bottle of cleaner and the handy applicator away, Junior and six neighbor kids and the dog come in and track in a bunch of mud. Mama just stands there and smiles and maybe hands the whole outfit a cookie all around. Tracked in mud doesn't spoil her disposition a bit because if you use the right kind of cleaner, dirt wipes rightup! I CAN USE THE RIGHT KIND OF cleaner, too. They have about 308 of .them at the grocery store and, if you believe the writing on the label, each of them is the only kind that will do the job. The trouble I have is finding the time to apply any kind of cleaner. On the rare occasions I do get the floors all cleaned up they still don't shine like the floors on the TV commercials. Even so, if any of my family has the courage to track mud in right after I finish I certainly don't take it sweetly. I just clobber them! ONE TV COMMERCIAL OUR FAMILY goes all the way on, is the theory that you should have canned soup at least once a day I've worn out one can opener on canned soup and I'm working on . another. .^W.e, have*it.,mosj every noon and I'd run it again;at nigjjl y'" I don't dare. So then we have canned beans. When the" TV commercials ask, "Have you had your soup today?", the kids can chorus, "Yes!" And they sometimes add, "Ugh!" ' * He * NEXT TO THEIR FAMILIES, TV mothers like clean clothes. My family comes first with me, too but although I like clean clothes as well as most people, there are other things that proceed them on the list. Taking naps, writing columns, cooking and eating, for instance. If you believe all the TV commercials, and I'm trying very hard to do so, all you have-to do to gain the lasting affection of your husband and offspring is do the laundry with the right soap. * * * RECENTLY, I WAS OUT OF LAUNDRY soap so I thought I'd pick up ,a box of the. kind guarantees will make your husband and kids'proud of you. My washer worked pretty good that week, or as good as a ten year old automatic can, and after three or four days I actually got the ironijig done! My family wasn't proud though. Bill said I ironed the creases in his pants so that it made him look bowlegged. Mary Ann said I didn't get the chocolate spot out oi her blouse. Jean complained because the only socks I washed were the thin kind and her new shoes need the bulky kind. Pop, growled, "When are you going to wash my other overalls?" Not a single one of them were bursting with pride over me because'I'd used the right soap. * * * OUR KIDS WERE REAL SMART AS babies. But even I will have to admit that they weren't nearly as smart as the babies on the TV commercials. Why, those kids sit there, looking perfectly adorable and not more than eight months old. All of a sudden they say in perfectly good English, "My Mommy takes good care of me. She puts baby powder all over me so I feel real comfy." It makes me wonder if our babies were kind of stupid because none of them said more thun four words you could understand until they were over a year old! * * * THIS WEEK'S RECIPE IS FOR Strawberry ChiTfon Squares.
