Be* Jftotra* ALGONA, IOWA, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 1967 Editor's Note: The first column of "Woman's World" was printed in the August 4, 1949 edition of The Algona Upper Des Moines. From that time on, Esther Grace Sigsbee never missed a week with her column until her recent illness and subsequent death. The Upper Des Moines reprints here the first column she wrote for "Woman's World." - o - IN PREPARING THIS column I was tolditshould contain items of interest mainly to women. Buthowcana woman talk about anything without getting some men into the conversation topic? Well, what do we girls talk about over our coffee cups, at our club meetings and out in the back yard while hanging out the wish ? Isn't it mostly children, food, local affairs and our husbands ? - o - THE MEN SOMETIMES scornfully label it chatter, yakity-yak and just plain gossip, but we girls know that we don't gossip any more than the men when they get together. We just talk important things— important to us, anyway. - o - ANY MOTHER KNOWS that the bright sayings of her children are more important than what some Congressman says clear out in Washington. Sometimes the children make just as much sense. When baby cuts a tooth, it's just as exciting as any sports world speed record, and if the little cherubs are really going good they can almost wreck as many things as any tornado that comes into the news. When we find a new set of ideas for meal planning our interest in them just about equals the interest in plans for world peace. - o - IT SEEMS TO ME THAT wehavealocal abundance of both extra- cute children and extra-good cooks. Just to name a few of the latter, there's Mrs. David King, Dot Smith, Mrs. C. B. Murtagh, Mrs. Ted Larson, Ollie Robinault, Mrs. Charles LaBarre, Mrs. Anna Hanson and Mrs. -Hugh Post. Some with a few less years of experience are Alma Stoffel, Val Williams, June Mawdsley, Jean Miner and Lavon Lindhorst. And of course, there are many, many more. - o - IF OUR HUSBANDS ONLY knew it, sometimes they are partly at fault, too, when they complain about the daily bill-of-fare lacking interest. Sometimes a meal that looks highly attractive at six loses quite a bit of its glamour when it has to wait for the man of the house to show about seven. - o - AND SOME .WOMEN ARE saddled .with finicky husbands who don't like this or that .... and then some are blessed with guys who will eat almost anything, which is my case .... in fact he frequently does .... all mixed up together to prevent throwing out leftovers. Anyway, Heaven please deliver me from having to cook for a strictly "meat, potatoes and pie" man. - o - LADIES AT A RECENT sewing club meeting were raving about a hot weather drink served them by Mrs. J. S. Thomas. It was a mixture of iced tea and orange juice. The ice cubes were frozen pineapple juice with a mint leaf in them. They said It was just right for a warm afternoon. However, the 20 or so small fry In our neighborhood still go all out for a big pitcher of gaudy- colored, to me, slightly nauseating mixture of lime, orange, cherry and grape, separately or all together. - o - NOW THAT I'VE STARTED this column I could use a little feminine help .... so send in your items or recipes .... the doings of the small tots are worth recording, too, as well as club activities and general news. Perhaps someone has a better name for this column. If so, we'd welcome receiving suggestions. (Editor's Note - No one ever had a better name). Sentral No) To Have An AFS Student LONE ROCK - The Sentral High School chapter of the Future Teachers of America (FTA) announces there will be no foreign exchange student at Sentral next year nor in the for- seeable future. The American Field Service (AFS) has recently adopted the policy of denying chapters to very small towns because the foreign students have not been happy in such surroundings. Isabella H. Sommerhoff, divisional director of AFS writes: "We appreciate your interest and concern very much. We have had an extraordinary number of inquiries this year and I am sorry that I must tell you that v/e feel we are unable to encourage the participation of small communities." Members of the Sentral FTA are most grateful to individuals and groups who indicated such warm interest in this project. The students regret keenly that it proved unsuccessful. - o - WED 25 YEARS Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Krause of Lone Rock are being honored on their silver wedding anniversary March 5 at 2 p.m. Open house is being sponsored by their children at the Legion hall in Lone Rock.
