4-Algona, (la.) Upper Des Moinei Thursday, April 27, 1967 EDITOR'S NOTE - This column of Woman's World is a reprint from the Wednesday, July 26, 1950 issue of the Algona Upper Des Moines. JUST AS I WAS READY TO BEGIN writing this column, we received an invitation to go on a 4-day vacation trip, so I hope you will pardon me if my mind wanders from the subject. This trip may or may not develop, because when two sets of parents decide to take a few days off on the spur of the moment, it takes a bit of manuevering. First, there is the little matter of leaving six youngsters in willing and capable hands. Then there is the matter of the laundry - clothes to take with us and clothes to leave behind for the kiddies. With the horrible drying weather we have had this week, this is no small achievement. And the husbands are busy arranging things, too, so that there may be "business as usual" while they are away. All this in the space of one day! ONE THING I Ail SURE OF - I could certainly use a vacation! Life's little problems (three of them) can get even an incurable optimist down once in a while. Some mothers claim that their children do not worry them, but I simply don't believe it! It seems to me that anything as active and unpredictable as a child just naturally must cause any parent some concern. You don't have to manufacture things to worry about either. - o WHEN THE KIDDIES ARE SICK YOU worry till they are well; when they are well and tearing around the neighborhood again, there are those accidents to be feared. Our 3-year-old had a near miss a few days ago that still has me quaking in my boots. Although she is usually careful crossing streets, she got out of a coaster wagon and dashed into the street, right into the path of a car. I heard the brakes squeal, but I looked around and found the little girl coming into our yard, so I didn't think too much of it until D. D. Sparks knocked at our door. He told me he had nearly run over our daughter, and he was quite visibly shaken. I was thankful he had good brakes on his car and that he was not traveling at an excessive rate of speed. It might have been a tragic news story for the Upper Des Moines, but thanks to the Good Lord, it didn't develop. - o ON A RADIO PROGRAM RECENTLY, I heard an item by an Iowa editor who said if there were nothing in the paper this week, the readers should be grateful. Because it could mean no murder, no suicide, no fire or no crime had taken place during the week. I believe he has something there. I suppose the readers would complain even more if such an event took place and the paper failed to report it! But if the memory of my days as society and local reporter on this paper serves me right, there is no wrath like that of a woman whose things were inadvertently omitted, incorrectly reported or her name misspelled. ' - o TO GET BACK TO THE SUBJECT of worrying. Worrying is supposed to shorten one's life. I have known two of the world's champion worriers in my day. One of them died suddenly at 50, the other is still hale and hearty at 90. She still finds something unusual to worry about each day. THE YEARS OF CHILDHOOD ARE SUPPOSED'to be the'most'" careless, worry-free days of our lives. That is another old belief I think untrue. I worried much more as a child than I do now. There were those arithmetic grades, the lost roller skate key, the quarrels with my sister and those awesome secrets my best friend told me. Most of all I worried when I would read in the paper that some crackpot had predicted the world would end soon. I was always fearful the last day would find my beloved grandpa, unrepented, still cussing a blue-streak at his team of mules. WE HAVE BEEN ENJOYING THE raspberries - both red and black - that Mrs. Adolph Bruellman brought us from West Bend. We ate all we could hold fresh, because it seems such a shame to cook them into pie or jam. - o- THB WEEK'S PHILOSOPHER, TRIAL size, is my young nephew. I have a lot of nephews, so it should conceal his identity and the subject of his remark. He said, "Mama, that little boy lives in the kind of house the kids can't go into - unless they are havine a birthday party." g IT'S Y BASKET TIME!
