NOW PAYING 3 1 / f,7 <2 ,'C Per Annum Compounded Semi-Annuaily HOME FEDERAL SAVINGS & LOAN ASS'N Since 1917 ALGONA, IOWA "BACK TO SCHOOL" IS A WONDERFUL SOUND to mothers. This week's edition of the Algona Upper Des Moines is dedicated lo it. It seems as if summer has just started, and it is true that there are still a few week's left of vacation, but it is equally true that it is high time we were rounding up the kids, putting shoes on them, selecting new clothes and letting down the hems on the old ones, washing the swimming pool chlorine out of their hair, and subjecting them to the civilizing influence of the halls of earning. * * •* FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY CAREER AS A MOTHER, I am sorry to have the school vacation'end! It's for selfish reasons, but as long as I've griped so often in this column about the things Lhe kids don't do and the messy and ornery things they do at our louse, I might just as well say something good about them. They 1 lave been a big help lo Father and me this summer. Bill has done j man's work with his dad, digging ditches and threading pipe and lie girls — well, they've taken over the household duties while [ ye been working in a way that is most gratifying. Of course, they Dicker and fight about fair shares of who does what, but the signs are appearing that they may one day be responsible adults. And, it seems lo me, that is one of the prime aims of parenthood. * * » SUMMER IS A WONDROUS TIME WHEN YO^U are young. It's not so bad when you are Blder, either, but when you are hovering on sither side of the forty mark, you get to feeling a little silly running through the grass barefoot, swiping green apples off the neighbor's tree, and rolling up in a blanket to sleep in the back yard. The capacity for eating corn on the cob diminishes with age, too, and you find you can't eat over five or six ears at a time without paying for it with indigestion. Not only do . you get to feeling a little self-conscious about your bulges in a bathing suit, you also find that one lap across the pool completely winds you when it wasn't so long ago that five or ten didn't tire you. * * * ANOTHER WAY KIDS DIFFER FROM ADULTS is in the way time shrinks. "The long, long, days of youth", is no idle phrase. What, seems to me as "only yesterday" is "ages ago" to the kids. I say something about what they did last week and I'm corrected by, "Why, Mom, that happened way back when I was in 4th grade." In fact, Pop and I have to think a moment before we tell someone whether our youngest will be in 4th or 5ith grade this fall. * + * WHEN OUR YOUNGSTERS GO BACK TO SCHOOL, August 31, if I finally have it straight, .Bill will be in llth grade and Mary Ann in 8lh at the high school building and only Jean will be ie-ft at Bryant in grade 5. Such a short time ago I was buying resting rugs for them for kindergarten! Since that time they have each learned to read, a miraculous accomplishment in itseli', but what's more they enjoy it! They have all mastered the multiplication table, which I never fully managed, they know about the history and government of countries not yet established when I was in school, they haye had the opportunity to become acquainted with art, sing in choruses, act in plays, learn to play musical instruments and participate in a variety of sports in ways in which the opportunities were much more limited in my day. All through going to school! - I * * + HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED WHAT IT WOULD be like for Barents if there were no schools? We think we have it tough enough now, getting the kids clothes ready, supervising homework and cutting in a little time as home room mothers. But what if we lad to conduct classes for our own youngsters at home in order for them to gel their education? Wouldn't teaching Junior to decipher, '.'-Look, look, Jane! See Spot run! See Spot run after Puff! Spot!", kind of interfere with our coffee hours? Wouldn't Sister's crayon murals get a little boring if she insisted on drawing pink houses and green cats all morning long while we were trying to vacuum the living room? And even if we survived the daily "Show and Tell" time wouldn't it be awfully hard to channel off 3ur adolescent's excess energy if he didn't have school sports? * * * IT COSTS A LOT TO RUN SCHOOLS, and all of us have to pay for them whether or not we have youngsters to educate. That's js it should be, for if we left it up to only the families with ichool-age kids, we'd either have to close down the schools or drown .he youngsters because we couldn't afford both. Many people have gripes about the way schools are run, but they rarely seek to air them by going to school meetings, attending budget hearings meetings (6 is a big crowd at these) or running for a position on the board of education. The school board gets to have quite a bit to say about the schools (at long hours; no pay) and they have the enviable privilege of getting blamed for everything anybody thinks is wrong with our schools. * * * I DO NOT HAVE OUR YOUNGSTERS READY for school, but I suppose it will open anyway August 31, whether or not I am ready. I do know that there is going to have to be considerable scurrying at our house if our kids are not to appear in their summer shorts and sneakers. * * * BACK TO SCHOOL AT THE LOUIS REILLY home in Algona will be a real mass movement. They will have Mary Beth, 15, Eddie, 14, and Michael, 13, at Garrigan this fall and Eileen, 11, Sharon, 10, Kathy, 8, Christopher, 7 and Mark, 61 at St. Cecelia's, and Mathew, 5, in kindergarten at Bryant. Besides that they'll have Bernie, 4, Theresa, 3, Becky, 1 ¥• and the ne.w baby, Shawn at home. * ' * ' * MRS REILLY CAME HOME FROM THE HOSPITAL when Shawn was five days old and the same day she and her husband processed 30 packages of corn for the freezer! The next clay she was a little tired because Shawn fussed at night so she merely did the usual housework and taxied daughters and neighbor kids to Girl Scout camp. Thinking of this, it shouldn't be such a job for me to get our three youngsters ready lo go back to school after all. * * * OUR GARDEN IS PRODUCING LIKE MAD these days. In it, Pop figures he has invested $15 for plowing, fertilizer and seeds, and we've already taken twice that much out of it in hobby fun and produce. We've made sauerkraut out of the cabbage, dill pickles out of the cucumbers, we have bouquets of onions hanging nn the back porch and a refrigerator drawer full of carrots. We've eaten corn on the cob twice a day and oodles of sliced tomatoes, which we now have to start canning. We've been so busy with :iur home-grown stuff we haven't even worked on the peaches, but we shall soon now. * * * IF YOU'D LIKE A RECIPE FOR A PEACH PIE that is a good party dessert, here's one for this week's recipe: 1-9 inch Graham cracker crust 2 cups fresh sliced peaches '/i cup chopped maraschino cherries v -> pint whipping cream 1/3 cup powdered sugar '/i cup chopped walnuts 10 marshmailows '-i cup orange juice. Cut the marshmailows into small pieces and let stand in the irange juice. Fill the shell wiih peaches. Whip the cream and fold n remaining ingredients, including the marshinallow mixture. Pour nlo shell over peaches. Let chill in refrigerator about 2 hours jelore serving. —GRACE. NOTES OF SERVICE MEN FORT SAM HOUSTON, TEX. — Capt. Herbert B.
