GARDENER Among the many gardeners In the Sumner area who have EDITOR'S NOTE - This column of print from the Tuesday, August 22, Upper Des Moines. - o - Woman's World is a re- 1950 issue of the Algona WELL PRINCESS ELIZABETH FINALLY had her baby! A girl, just as they had hoped, and everyone is doing fine. Although I wasn't exactly waiting up at night, for the news of the arrival, I couldn't help feeling pleased that everything turned out so well. There is something about the birth of any baby that makes all mothers feel a bond of kinship. This royal baby was about 24 hours overdue, according to the court physicians. Prince or pauper, white or black, rich or poor, a baby always seems to choose his own good time to be born. Nobody, even the most learned medical man, can predict exactly when, nor have they discovered exactly, what makes labor start in the first place. - o - ON SUNDAY, WHILE THRONGS OF people waited for the great news, expected momentarily, Elizabeth pulled a fast one on them all. She slipped out and went over to her folks for lunchl This was considered quite daring of her at that late date, but I think I know what happened. Elizabeth probably just got her kitchen well scrubbed up so it would be nice and clean while she was away having her baby. She wanted Phillip to have a nice, hot meal in spite of all the pending activity, so she took him over to Ma's. That way they could eat and she still wouldn't have to cook and mess up her kitchen! - o - I HAVE JUST FINISHED READING "The Little Princeses" by Marion Crawford, who was the royal family's governess for many years. It was full of gossip about the private lives of England's rulers, and it did make them seem almost human. But I still fail to grasp the viewpoint of the British people, who place their royal family on such a high plane that they practically worship them. - o - WHEN ELIZABETH'S FIRST CHILD was born, she wrote her ex-governess, "Don't you think he is quite adorable? I still can't quite believe he is really mine, but perhaps that always happens to new parents." Yes, Elizabeth, almost every parent feels that way because, although this business of having babies has been going on for quite a few years now, it always seems an extra-special miracle each time - at least for the baby's parents. But, there is nothing like a few two o'clock feedings, some sessions of bathing the squirming little • creatures and a little diaper washing to make a mother know for sure just whose baby it is. Once you care for a baby, you know "he is really mine." - o - I ENVY THE NEW ROYAL MOTHER'S 10 days of complete rest in bed following the birth. And the security that comes of knowing the family will always have a roof over their heads and money to pay the doctor and buy Pablum isn't to be sneezed at either. But when it comes to caring for my own children washing their dirty little faces, hearing their prayers, soothing their bumps and settling their scraps - I won't ask to trade places. Even the hectic life I lead in this beaten-up little house in Algona sounds like a great deal more fun than living royally, In a choice of several, gloomy, old palaces. - o- THEN, TOO, ROYALPTY COMPLAINS that they have so little privacy. After Elizabeth's marriage and before their first child was expected, she told her governess, "Crawfie," that she would love to have quite a large family. She also said if she ever did become pregnant, everyone else would probably know all about the whole thing before she and Phillip really knew, themselves. If she had ever lived in a small town, this speculation wouldn't seemed so amazing 1 GRACE Ex-Algonan Is Promoted By GE Computers Doe Meanders taken advantage of the unusually fine early spring weather and planted is a real authority on the subject, Ed O'Brien.
