4-Algona (la.) Upper Des Molnei Thursday, March 2, 1967 Bares 568,000 False and Abusive Telephone Calls Complaints of abusive or obscene phone calls received by the Bell Telephone system amounted to a whopping 568,000 in the first 11 months of 1966, Chairman Rosel H. Hyde of the Federal Communications Commission reported to a Senate Commerce subcommittee. A "most offensive form of harassment," Hyde said, has been a deluge of "false reports of death or injury" phoned to families of soldiers in Vietnam. In fact, the great majority of offensive calls during the period involved such false reports. Hyde declared. He added that "some remedies do exist," such as more expert devices that phone companies have developed to track down offenders. Also, he pointed out that 38 states have enacted laws making abusive telephone calls a crime. The Senate subcommittee is considering legislation which would make offensive calls in interstate commerce and in the District of Columbia a federal crime. power, precision jet photo reconnaissance and air mobility for the nation's ground forces.

Hall Algona, Iowa Editor's note: This is the second in a series of reprints of "Woman's World," published in the Sept. 15, 1949 edition of the Upper Des Moines. - o - CHRIS REESE IN HIS RAVINGS column in last week's paper really came up with a wonderful idea. He advocates a workless day for housewives and mothers on Sundays and holidays! Now, that's something we girls should get together on and see if we can enforce. Not that it's such a new idea - girls have dreamed of that for years - but this was actually suggested by a man; any time Chris wants to run for governor, all he will have to do Is talk like that in his campaign speeches and he'll get the vote of every woman in the state. Of course, when I called the item to the attention of the man of the house he pointed out that it was run under the heading of Ravings. But that is not raving to me that makes very good sense. - o - IN THE MAGAZINES THE PAST YEAR or so, there have been several articles by men, naturally, on the inefficiency of housewives. It seems women lack system. While men usually have quite a few points that most of us will grant are perfectly true, they only tell part of the story. The author of these articles usually takes over the household for a few days, or at most, a couple of weeks, and thus becomes an authority on the subject. He doesn't allow for seasonal work like canning, clothes storage, mending and housecleaning. He never seems to mention the time consumed curling little girls' hair, letting down hems, birthday parties, bandaging hurt fingers, children with colds, teething babies, refereeing quarrels and cleaning up the damage done by active youngsters. He also omits those trips to the dentist, the doctor, the photographer, the shoe store, the barber and the clothing stores. He always seems to remember the time we waste in talking on the telephone, coffee parties, looking for lost articles and reading magazines. - o - ANYWAY, REARING CHILDREN IS LIKE falling in love there's not very much "system" connected with either of them. You have to depend a lot on the "heart." - o - AND IF ANYONE SHOULD ASK ME if I would like to trade places with the men and go out and earn the living while he stays home and keeps house with his efficient system, I would say "Absolutely Not!" I think homomaking and raising children is the best, most interesting career a woman can have. Even If the housework does seem to beat you down a bit there is rarely a dull moment, or two days alike. Most jobs for pay have quite a bit of drudgery connected with them, too. In what other Job besides homamaklng, can you try your hand at being a child psychologist, chef, dishwasher, nurse, comptroller of the budget, scrub woman, chauffeur, laundress, hostess, diplomat, interior decorator, teacher, personal shopper and confidential listener? And In case I've sounded like a man hater - I'm not. A gal just has to sound off once in a while. A man is really a wonderful thing to have around the house. No family should be without one. - o - THE ALPHA PSI CHAPTER OF THE Beta Sigma Phi sorority here is beginning this season with very little money in their treasury. There's a good reason for it, though. Last year they raised over $400 and presented It to St. Ann hospital here to help furnish a room. That's an excellent record for an organization composed of only twenty-some working girls and young housewives. What a lot of committee meetings, bake sales, ticket sales and plain hardwork must have gone into that project! There are a lot of clubs and organizations in Algona with very worthy projects and interesting programs. I'd like to hear about them. Won't you send them to Grace, In care of the UDM? - o - THIS WEEK'S RECIPE IS FOR BAKED Chill and is very good for covered dish suppers. It's also a fine family main dish because it makes a little meat go a long way. It comes from Dot Smith but she doesn't know I'm using It. Saute two medium onions in two tablespoons shortening until the onions are golden but not brown. Add one pound ground beef and stir until brown and crumbly. Add one number two can of tomatoes and one number two can of red kidney beans. Season with salt, pepper and chill powder. Pour into casserole and add one-half cup uncooked rice, stirring well. This will be ready to eat after baking one hour In a 350 degree oven but longer baking improves the flavor. six months of active duty in the state of Washington.

The schoolboy nearest to us tells us that he has learned what the primary colors are and that his teacher doesn't want the kids to go homo and blab things that goes on in school. Any further information will be purely voluntary on his part. He has already dreamed up a very effective way to squelch Inquisitive adults. GRACE Swea City V.F.W.
