»—****»««.» ( Wed, April 25, Bancroft MftJtt SUfc»AY <iOMtiS THE DAY thai fof over 40 years has _—ii set aside to honor Mother. The tendency, they tell me, is to get away from over-sentimentalizing Mothers Day. The trend is to make il a day to honor the whole family, especially Mother. This * 3s perfectly allright with me. because I never did know one single 'Mother who cotlld possibly live up to all the fancy thinp they say „ about her on Mother's Day, but I'll be blamed if I'll give up ,, every last little bit of attention. » "l ALREADY HAVE MY Mother's Day gift. It's o framed ,' picture epscribed, "God Could Not Be Everywhere, So He Gave Us Mothers", Mary Ann gave it to me. She went down to the "• dump one day with her Dad, found this perfectly good picture,' and now it hangs on the kitchen wall along with my Valentine and jnv columnist awards. * » * . MOTHER'S PAY HAS LONG been ft favorite subject for Woman's World. I'll not give that up easily if the,day becomes entirely Family Day. For this year, I've written these Ten Commandments For Mother: * * * 1 — THOU SHALT CULTIVATE A sense of .humor. A strong back, steady nerves, good digestion, gentle hands and great patience become ft mother, but the greatest asset is the ability to laugh, at thyself, arid with thy children. 2 — THOU SHALT NOT LOOK DOWN on thy job. "Only a housewife and mbther", Is a well-used -phrase, but Queens have answered to, "YbUr Majesty" and still preferred the title of "Mother"; s heiresses have clipped millions of dollars of slock , coupons, and considered their greatest legacy, their children; ladies of fashion, j with all of Tiffany's stock at their command have referred to their youngsters as their finest jewels. * * * *3 — THOU SHALT LEARN ALL MANNER of new habits. Thou shalt'learn to sleep with one eye and both ears open-for the awakening of thy baby. Thou shalt learn to button tiny garments and at the same time, appy thy own lipstick. Thou shalt learn to eat up leftover oatmeal after the jam and muffins are * all gone. * * * " * 4 — THOU SHALT LEARN TO DEVELOP a discerning eye so thou might see, the beauty in a childish gift of wilted dandelions; the artistic'talent in a kindergarten crayon sketch without asking, "What is it?", and thou'must learn to accept graciously the endless procession, of .pot holders and memo pads preferred as Mother's „' Day gifts, ' . , , i ' *, . "', 5 — THOU,, MUST BECOME A JOINER for,the sake of thy 1 '„ children.'Thou must! volunteer thy services as a Den'Mother, a Girt »Scout,Leader, a"Sunday School teacher and a Room Mother, Thou , «.~must bake-endless^ rows of cookies for the Band,''-the church youth "•'* group, the'4-H, the P.* T. A, balje sales and thou',ituM make'endless i >• ' chiliburgers and act as chaperbne for teen-age parties. Thou must 1 ''<attend meetings and ^speak thy piece in-the interest of school . - vt y policies. Thou must''vote at every election, for our Officials are' the '• ,. *ones who 'shape the world for our children. ' ' * ' * i r ,* * * * ,; ,J s 8 ' — THOU MUST LEARN TO EVALUATE what is most im• ,;, portant. Even though the choice' between a European trip and edu/- " >/ v > cation for thy children never arises, thou shalt many times chodse i J , between sucfi^things ,as wearing thy last year's outfit again and a t , v *new gown', for,'.Sister "for her spring concert. Thou'must learn to ~ £, decide when'to be I'ighteously firm and when to be lovingly lenient. f Thou must become -resigned to. thy daughter's borrowing thy last , J >;, good pair ornylons. - r; 7 _,THOU MUST'HOLD BACK THY SQUEAMISHNESS. -\ l( i Worms, papier mache,- puppies, marbles," orphan cats, chemistry ^ set, 6dors, v bubble-gum, insect collections, rabbits, orange peels, .V^sand-in-Dpckets, giggles, pigeons, 1 hour phone calls, pimples, and •-5 5f. peanut butter r jam-and-banana sandwiches are a part of thy off>, & spring's growing .up*.process. Truly, these too-shall pass away.
