Present were Mr and Mrs Portland Girl Is Wed June 7 At litonka , Juftt 18, 1959 Algofm (fa.) UftMtf DM • •• • Over a hundred friends gathered "JUVENILE INTEGRITY STARTS IN the Home". That's the slogan n national committee hit upon for its 1859 theme. Because almost everything, both good and bad, does begin in the home, it's a sure-fire slogan. It would be very appropriate for an organization fighting juvenile delinquency. But do you. know who is using this motto? The Nalionill Committee to Observe Father's PaV! » .* * V WE HAVEN'T BEEN CELEfiRATlNG Father's Day nearly so long as we have Mother's Day, but this is the 49th official observance. The first Father's Day was June 19, 11)10 and it was set up by the Ministerial Association of Spokane, Wash. Father was not only., Uiter than mother in getting a day all to himself, they have also come to use his day not so much to honor and pay tribute to him, as to remind him of his responsibilities and see if they can't get the poor guy to do just a little better. * '-.«*•, * ACCORDING TO THE COMMITTEE, "Father's role as a head of the family is being pointed up in this years's Father's Day observance. The National Father's Day Committee hopes that every American father \yill understand and act .on this philosophy and implant juvenile integrity as a living fact in our daily life"! -The exclamation point is mine. If 1 were u .father, I would revolt. Why can't they go ahead and honor father unreservedly on his day as they do mother oh her's. They don't give her any slaps on the wrist when .hey hand her the bouquets. , • IF FATHER'S DAY WERE CELEBRATED exactly,as recommended by the national committee it might go like this: Father would sit down to the breakfast of his choice. He is the head-of-the- liouse, and as such he can have any old menu he darn pleases. But before, breakfast, if he has a paper-boy son, he has been out on the route since da\Vn, teaching the kid that integrity is a valuable part of'business life. Then he sees that his daughters wash the dishes in the most sanitary method, for if the girls are going to have integrity they need it in homemaking most of all. Then father will get all shaved and shined up. He's setting an example of integrity and he can't look like a slob. * * * SOMEWHERE ALONG THE LINE Father will open up a gift package containing a shirt, some underwear and maybe a conservative tie, purchased with money handed out with the greatest integrity by father. He'll go to church with his family and hear a preacher, who himself is a father, expound on the subject of fathers getting a little more integrity. * * * .,. • FILIAL DEVOTION IS A PART of integrity so at noon, Father will probably have to go to a family reunion—of his wife's people. In .his role as head of the family,' he'll probably have to hand money all around so the kids-can go roller skating or to the movies. Al Scott and Cedar Rapids. four children of Mr and Mrs F. G. Schmidt and three children of St. Ansgar and Mrs Don Wortman,, her husband and their three sons of Rockville, Md. Jim Antoine has returned for the summer from Iowa State College at Ames. His sister, Rita, a (.student nurse at Mercy hospital in Des Moines, was home from curve clinging Sunday afternoon, pop can't relax and watch the baseball game. If he 'wants to'instill integrity in his children, he'll have to tune in an educational TV program, Or inspire them to U love of literature by reading poetry aloud. , IF FATHER REALLY WANTS TO GO along with this integrity business, he'll fit in a little lecture about the birds and the bees to his son, a session of explanation about charge accounts to his wife, and a chat with his daughters about how men really feel about girls who use loo much make-up". Evening will come and father will be allowed to flop into bed. Here it is, a whole Father's Day shot to heck and what did we accomplish? Integrity! * * * IF I WERE ON THE NATIONAL Committee to Observe Father's Day I would have a slogan, too. It would be "Fathers are People, Too, Just Like Mothers." and I would insist that fathers be recognized simply because we love them. * * * I WOULD NOT DO ONE BIT OF POINTING out to Father that he is the head-of-the-family. He is, b\tt the way things are nowadays he might enjoy not being reminded, of the weight of it for at least one day. And as far as this integrity business goes, it's a very subtle quality. You can't sit down and all of a sudden decide to instill it Most fathers have a great deal of it in one way or another, and if they do,' the kids are sure to sense it without spelling it out. J ' * * * THERE ARE ALMOST AS MANY kinds of fathers as there are mothers—good, bad, indifferent, excellent and part-time. But we women have the best of it. The physical fact of, having given birth makes all of us saints, if we are to believe the Mather's Day propaganda. But pop-r-he has to do some reforming if he is going to properly celebrate Father's Day. IN SPITE OF ALL THIS, I am a bit envious of the father- child relationship. A' son tells his pop things that he would ^never confide in his mother because she tends, to get all emotional over things. Fathers and sons can talk about motors and box scores, and batting averages and fish bait with a tacit understanding and not waste time explaining how the thingama-jigs work as you have to do when a son talks to mother. Little girls get their first flirting experience with their daddies and they can get by with murder. This exasperates mother, but she sometimes gets a clue or two on just what technique was most effective when she herself caught her husband. * * * NO FAMILY SHOULD BE WITHOUT A father if they can possibly help it. Fathers are essential to our daily bread and roof, to our moral guidance and to the upkeep of our home. They are handy to have around on every occasion from walking the floor while waiting for us to make our initial entrance into the world to the day they escort a daughter down the wedding aisle or write the last check for junior before he makes his own way in the world. Besides, fathers are a great deal of fun. Let's applaud them unreservedly on their day. * »• # IF FATHER HAS A FANCY for barbecue cooking as so many men do nowadays, you might make up this sauce for him to use on chicken or spareribs. I found it in the Wesley Community Cook Book and it was contributed by Mrs Rich Reiling: ¥2 cup catsup J /4 cup chile sauce Va cup vinegar 1 tsp. salt 2 tabsp. lemon juice Vi tsp. tabasco 2 tsp. Worchestershire 2 tsp. brown sugar. ' Combine ingredients and simmer gently. Use for basting. —GRACE.
