Editor's note - This Woman's World column is a reprint from the Thursday, October 6, 1949 issue of the Upper Des Moines. - o - ANYONE WHO DOESN'T LIKE SURPRISES should never clean house where a bunch of active youngsters live. Many are the half - eaten sandwiches, orange peels, parts of toys and missing socks that are brought to light when mom moves out the furniture and really digs the dirt. The latest one at our house Is the pair of tomatoes I found in an unused teapot. Sister put them there : for between meal munching and forgot them for too long. They were in pretty bad shape, but their discovery solved the mystery of the peculiar odor In our kitchen. - o - ONE THING MOTHERS OF YOUNG children never have to worry about is their home not having that "lived in" look. Some people have to pay decorators to achieve that effect. I do wish, though that just once when I've spent all morning cleaning, the house would stay slicked up until everyone is in bed. - o - MILLIE AND WALTER KLAMP didn't get much sleep the other night. It wasn't because they didn't go to bed at a good respectable hour either. At about fifteen minute intervals a car horn would honk continuously for about five minutes and then stop. This occurred several times and the Klamps thought perhaps it was a group of young people over in the next block. Mrs. Klamp finally wondered If it could be the automatic timer on her stove so she went to the kitchen to check, but everything seemed in order. But still the honking continued. Finally they checked the back yard and found the noise coming from their own garage. Something was wrong with their own carl Mrs. Klamp said she had heard of people being kept awake by restless children, but never by a restless family car. Finally they went back to sleep and were again awakened. This time it was the stove. When she checked before she had neglected to push the gadget on the timer clear back in. - o - PHYLLIS HOOVER IS BEING KIDDED about her guiding services. When a carload of local women started out for Mrs. Tom Sampson's the other night to attend a club meeting, Phyllis was the only one in the car who knew the way. The journey was supposed to be for ten miles but the group traveled twice that far. The group ended up just outside of Burt where they asked directions of a friendly farmer. He hadn't heard of the Sampson's but he happened to know where one of their neighbors lived. They found they has passed very near the farm. The carload arrived only about an hour late but they report that it was a wonderful night for a ride and they got a chance to see a lot of fine Kossuth county farms. - o - THAT PROUD PAPA, MEL MINER is already worrying about the future behavior of his month old son, BUI. It seems that the baby Is so good now that his parents feel that he will have to be extra-ornery later on to make up for it. - o - „ '. AT THE'" OPEN HOUSE Op THAT wonderful St. Ann Hospital. Sunday, I was pleased to find'that at least three fine nurses who have had long experience at the old Kossuth hospital will be working at St. Ann. I talked with Meta Gade, Ellen Carlson and Gertie, (I never did know her last name.) It's very comforting to know that Algona has such a good hospital. It certainly is going to be a big help for prospective fathers. Those middle of the night races with the stork to Fort Dodge or Mason City, were awfully hard on them. Ifs an example of woman's inefficiency, one of them told me, that she never is quite sure when a baby is going to be born so she can schedule everything accordingly. St. Ann's stork department is marvelous. Mr. and Mrs. Richard G. Thul, underwent tonsillectomies in Mercy hospital, FortDodge, Friday. Mrs. Henry Bormann, Mrs. E. J.

Follow- THE JAYCEES CALLED IN THEIR wives Saturday to help them serve lunch to those 750 band members here for the festival.

Just to keep it in the Jaycee spirit they held it at the Jaycee wayside park out by the Pioneer Seed Co.
