Ma^on City Garden C ub Ho ds First Meeting of Season i ~~~ ~~ __—. _ , i ,, MARRIAGE REVEALED—The marriage of Phyllis Peterson, daughter of Mrs. Gusta Peter- ion, 427 5th S. W., on Aug. 30 at Sioux Falls, S. Dak., to Ernest Cardarelli, son of Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Cardarelli, Clear Lake, was revealed here. Both attended the Mason City high school and the bridegroom is operator of Club Lido at Clear Lake. Arab Women Work for Emancipation By NADEA'NE WALKER Tunis—There are only a handful of Arab co-eds in all the universities of French North Africa and less than a dozen women in the medical and legal professions, yet in the few years since the war a slow emancipation has begun. A nationalist leader (male) expressed the firm conviction here that in another two generations the veil for women will have completely disappeared. Already, with few exceptions, the Arab woman no longer shares her husband with other wives. Woman's suffrage movements have been organized everywhere except Spanish Morocco. Real conditions of emancipation are restricted to the young and the wealthy, but they are spreading. One of the heroines of the feminists is the young daughter of the Sultan of Morocco, French- educated Princess Lalla Aicha, •who carries out her liberal convictions not only by frequently appearing in public and being photographed without a veil, but by making addresses (she speaks English as well as French and Arabic) attacking "the false conceptions by which some try to limit the horizons of our women." Perhaps for fear of alienating their potential following, none oJ the women's groups insists on their members abandoning the veil though the leaders set an example by going unveiled themselves They consider this an issue pi secondary importance, which wil! resolve itself in time. Even the young feminists admit that the veil still serves its purpose as a "misery hider" be•hind which old women can conceal their ugliness and the poor can conceal their rags. The question of who or what is guilty of keeping Moslem women in a subservient position is one which brings conflicting answers —o When using raisins wash them under hot tap water and then drain them well.

A cook, if she cooks well enough, can be cantankerous, temperamental and have all sort of eccentricities. The family will tolerantly put up with anything, if the results are placed upon the table.' There is considerable national pride in announcing that one of the best cooks in Paris is happily installed in the home of an American couple, Mr. and Mrs. Allan Updegraff. This is Louise, called Louisetta affectionately by her admirers. Louisetta, an Austrian by birth, was trained by the late famed gourmet-dressmaker, Paul Poiret. The Updegraffs who spend part of the time in New York wormed out of her the story of her employment by the unpredictable, frequently broke, couturier. He first demanded that she improvise difficult fish dishes for 3 consecutive days, and after that decided she would do. Thereupon he showed her a small book, breed her to swear upon her •nother's memory she would never divulge its contents—recipes writ- en expressly for him—and prom- sed to make her the best cook in Paris. And he did, ioo. Louisetta's whole life and'love s bound up in the Updegraff fam- ly and its kitchen. Her souffles are miracles of height and airiness. Her pastries are short, light and dissolve in the mouth. She cooks meats to the king's taste. ..ouisetta will brook no interference in her domain, the kitchen, except occasionally to let Mr. Updegraff bring home a melon or such. That's just indulgence, however. She does her own shopping and is the terror of the neighborhood shops. There was, however, a major crisis in the Updegraff-Louisetta household which almost ruined everything. Mrs. Updegraff knows almost every American who comes to Paris anyway except by prepaid, guided tour. For many years she has presided at noon Sunday morning breakfasts, where Americans, homesick for American food, may gorge on waffles, sausages, maple syrup, and American coffee, the kind without chicory and which is best with a little sugar and cream. People show up by the score and it should be said that Mra. Updegraff deserves plenty of credit for standing over a French butcher and forcing him to make American-style sausage. She is a native of Iowa and understands about both pigs and strength of mind. Then came the question of teach- Lock Photo UNCLE PERFORMS CEREMONY—Miss Lucille Marie Brandau, daughter of Mr, and Mrs. Edward Brandau of Rudd, and Neil, Harlan Bisbee, son of Mr. and Mrs. Bradford J. Bisbee of Stacyville were married in a double ring ceremony in the Eden Presbyterian church -*by the Rev. E. H. Ahrens, uncle of the bride, who also performed the marriage ceremony of the bride's parents nearly 31 years ago. Baskets of mixed flowers formed the setting for the candlelight wedding. Nuptial music was played by Eunice Brandau, sister of the Original Sonnets at Writers Club if you put them in a Lucien LeLong Perfumes and Colognes WATCHES DIAMONDS v \\\\\\\nuiiJi ing Louisetta, a postwar acquisition, about waffles. Louisetta listened carefully to instructions about eggs, flour, milk, salt and the rest. She listened, but smiled. Certainly, she said, she could and would make them. "And what did she make," asked Dora Miller Updegraff, "she turned out delicious crepes—little French pancakes—for the first waffles party." The situation since has been clarified. The Updegraff breakfasts continue to be a Parisi institution, but Mrs. Updegraff herself presides at the waffle iron ladling out a mixture she makes herself. Louisetta disapproves of the whole thing, but it is the only occasion.on which she permits Mrs. Updegraff into the kitchen. There was also the crisis of the pumpkin pie. The Updegraffs last November decided to have a real Thanksgiving dinner with all fixings for a few American friends. Louisetta received her instructions for the pie, and again nodded convincingly. She couldn't understand some of the directions, however, so what was supposed to be a pie arrived in the form of a tart. Anyone who knew anything about cooking, reasoned Louisetta, knew you had to bake the crust before you put filling in it. "Next year," swears Dora, "we'll have real pumpkin pie." Meanwhile, I'll settle for a tart by Louisetta, with the pastry perfect and then made more perfect by grating a little green almond into it. Arid then heaped high with raspberries, topped by whip cream. At the moment, Louisetta has fallen in love with an American electric iron, full of switches and lights that flash. The Upde- graffs have ordered a special one from America for her. They are afraid she'll find some family with an extra one who just might be able to woo her away. The North Iowa Writer's club met at the Y. M. C. A. with Mrs. Nina Phalen presiding. Mrs. Ella Bedsaul read 2 original Petrar- chian sonnets, "Rushmore, Shrine of Democracy" and "Bus Depot," and explained the meter. Mrs. Doris Baumgardner read an article on "Are Women Suckers?" slanted at cotton sales promotion. Mrs. Virginia Finn read "How Do You Buy?" an article dealing with customer attitude. The next meeting will be Oct. 12 at the Y. M. ^C. A., when Marcella Rossiter of Manly will give a practical lesson on verse writing. Membership is open to any North lowan actively interested in •writing, members stated. —o— BETHLEHEM MARY CIRCLE MEETS AT CHURCH The Bethlehem Mary circle met at the church social room with Mrs. C. Woodhouse and Mrs. A. Schaper as -hostesses. Mrs. Ralph Horn, Mrs. George Szymecek, Mrs. R. Fox, Mrs. Chris Heim- brick and Mrs. B. Doolan were guests. Mrs. V. Kelsh read the devotions and the church supper was discussed. Lunch was served at the close of the evening. The next meeting will be Oct. 20 at the home of Mrs. Fred Borger, 937 N. Harrison, with Mrs. Gottfried Borger as co-hostess. Mum Grower Speaks to Large Crowd Members of the Mason City Garden club were exposed to "Mum-itis" at their first meeting of the season held Thursday night with a potluck dinner at the Hardware Mutual building, when Leonard Rodewald, Clear Lake grocer, lold them about his 5,000 mums. The flower-grower not pnly told the large crowd about his acre of ground covered with mums, but he brought along 15 plants of leading name mums in all colors and shades to show them. Mr. Rodewald, whose hobby is growing these mums, has 25 varieties, kinds and colors in his field. "The secret of keeping the plants from year to year is covering the roots with about 8 inches of soil or sand in the fall to prevent ground heaving in the spring," he said. "The' heaving breaks the rootlets and kills the plant." In closing he invited the group to come out to the Julia Copley farm west of town on the north highway to Clear Lake to see ^lis mums. He said that the mums are in full bloom and that they would stand temperatures of 23 or 24 degrees while ordinary plants are killed at 30 to 32 or sometimes higher. Mrs. Harry Brown, president, conducted a short business meeting and announced that guests are always welcome at the garden club meetings. Mrs. George Gitz, Sr., program chairman, was in charge. Mrs. R. L. Goltz, chairman of the hospitality committee, was in charge of refreshments. She was assisted by Mrs. M. J. Kelly, Mrs. H. B. Major, Mrs. M. L. Payne, and Mrs. Grace Wilson. The October meeting will be a travelog.

The long fitted sleeves were pointed at the wrist and the skirt ended in a full train. Her fingertip veil with lace edge was held in place by a sweetheart tiara trimmed with seed pearls and lace. Her jewelry consisted of a pearl necklace, a gift of the bridegroonri, and rose ivory earrings worn by her sister-in-law at her wedding. She carried pink roses and white gladioli. She was attended by Mrs. John Ohden, sister of the bride, as matron of honor, who was dressed in a pink taffeta g'own.

She has been busy since June collecting blooms and preparing them for drying, following much the same processes used two centuries ago in historic Williamsburg. Schooled by a decade of flower arranging for the historic exhibition buildings of the restored city, Mrs. Fisher recommends that flowers be picked just before fuli bloom, since, in the drying process, they will continue blooming and "fluff up," retaining both bloom and color. After cutting, the flowers should be taken into a dark room, where the temperature is kept slightly Junior Must Learn How to Handle Money By DAVID TAYLOR MARKE AP Newsfeatures Sooner or later every child must learn to make his own decisions in handling money. But parents often fail to realize that the handling of money is a thing that has to be learned, says Professor Ralph H. Ojemann. A noted' authority on the influence of culture and community upon the school-age child, Doctor Ojemann is associate professor in the Iowa university child welfare research station. Writing in National Parent-Teacher in an article entitled "Allowance for Growth," he says: "The ability to use money must be acquired. No child is born with it. Furthermore, the learning is not a simple matter. It does not take place by itself, and it is a long process. "It isn't enough for the child to learn that 5 pennies make a nickel, 2 nickels a dime, 10 dimes a dollar and so on ... It means that the child has to learn what choices will help him in the long run. Whether he will buy more hot dogs and popcorn than he needs to satisfy his hunger, or go vithout a new pair of socks or vhat we adults call 'decent 1 shoes, depends greatly upon what he himself feels will help him most." Learning the use of money is much like other kinds of learning. You can read all about it, as an adult, but it takes actual doing o get the most out of anything. The child is equally dependent on experience. In other words, says Dr. Ojemann, all children need money of their own as an 'allowance for growth." The child may get his money either by working for it, through an allowance, or both. The important point is that, the money :ome in fairly regularly, especial- .y at the" start. Furthermore junior must do the managing. He must decide how the money is to be spent.

It will take several weeks to dry the flowers completely, depending on the type. Grasses and leaves are gathered towards the end of summer and into the early fall. The branches of leayes are placed between papers in layers, and a framework with weights on top. The height of the pile makes no difference but'-it is important that no two leaves over-lap and that the branches still have sap. So fixed they will'dry in about 6 weeks Ferns also are placed between papers and pressed, but grasse are placed in jars to dry with their natural curves. Around Williamsburg the best leaves for drying are oak, maple, dogwood hickorynut and beech collected a the height of their autumn colors Wild and cultivated flowers ar gathered all through the summer At the present time, Mrs. Fisher is gathering goldenrod, strawflowers, amaranthus, statice, ageratum, blazing star, Chinese lantern, pearly everlasting, Joepye weed, boneset, butterweed, cattails and honesty, as well as seed pods, wheat and corn tassels.

But suppose Junior makes foolish purchases? What can we, as parents, do then? When a child continually spends his money in a way that doesn't help him, there are reasons, says Professor Ojemann. It is our business to know what those reasons are. Does the child feel inadequate, insecure, or deprived of a reasonable chance? Another important point is that the child who manages his own money must suffer the logical consequences of unwise spending. If he should exhaust his funds before his next allowance, supplying him at random with additional funds may defeat the whole system of training. Above all, it will help both the parents and the child if we realize that learning to handle money is not a simple matter for anyone. It involves the very diffi- ult problem of learning to judge and to recognize values. The ac- ENGAGEMENT ANNOUNCED —Mr. and Mrs. Martin Borg, Forest City, announce the engagement of their 'daughter, Arlys Jean, to Nelson Hendrickson, Chillicothe, Mo., son of Clarence Hendrickson, Elgin, formerly of Forest City. tual practice obtained from handling money or earning it, or both, the guidance that comes from an intelligent family council, and the further guidance of heart-to-heart talks with his parents—these are one of the birthrights of every child. The task is not easy, but it is very important. It can be done. —o— Bollinger-Hiisabeck Wedding Revealed Fenton—Announcement is made of the marriage of Doris, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Bollinger of Fenton, to Robert, son of Mr. and Mrs. W.
