4-Algona (la.) Upp«r Dei Moinw Thursday, May 18, 1967 Oft AC! EDITOR'S NOTE - This column of Woman's World is a reprint from the Tuesday, September 26, 1950 issue of the Algona Upper Des Moines. - o - SOMETHING ABOUT THE MUSIC and the beautiful words of the wedding ceremony always makes me want to cry. I would have if my own husband, who is a bit scornful of such feminine sentiment, were not sitting by my side. It isn't crying for sadness - if s just because the whole thing is so solemn and so beautiful. But the weddings of today are apt to have a touch of sadness about them, too. So many young couples must pack away all those wonderful presents until the bridegroom returns from service and they can establish their home. It's not easy, nowadays to l)e young and in love. Maybe it never was entirely moonlight and roses. - o - THE WEDDLNG CEREMONY NOW IS A LITTLE changed from the ones I remembered. But then I hadn't been to a wedding for a couple of years. There weren't so many tliys and tliees. Instead of endowing her with his worldly goods, he promised to share all his possessions with her. And the nicest change of all, it seems to me, came when the minister asked who would give the bride. The fattier answered, "Her Mother and I do," instead of just, "I do." The parents have equal responsibilities in rearing a daughter to marriageable age and I think acknowledgment of tills fact in the ceremony is a fine thing. - o - LAVONNE POST WAS INVITED TO A WEDDING recently, too. Her brother, Maury White, was married in Des Moines. Lavonne had long kidded her brother about being a confirmed bachelor and she had always wanted to be there when he finally took the big step. It was a morning wedding so she was up and on the road by 5:30 to allow ample time for the trip. Bobbie and Joan E. accompanied her and they were so excited about Uncle Maury's wedding that they did something unusual, for them. They succumbed to car-sickness. From Clarion to Des Moines they made eight very necessary stops. After cleaning up the evidence and changing to fresh clothes, Lavonne arrived at the festivities in time to see the bride and groom, dressed in their traveling clothes, leaving on their honeymoon. - o - DO YOU EVER GET TO FEELING "low" about things? Maybe you call it "down in the dumps" or feeling "blue." Thafs the way I looked at tilings for a while last week. The housework was way ahead of me, the kids were extra-ornery and my writing wasn't doing too well. Those three skits familiar to Algona club women, that 1 sent to an interested publisher, with high hopes, came back. This time perked up with a personal letter instead of the usual printed rejection slip - but still unsold. I had almost decided to take up darning socks for my evening hobby when a few things started happening to make me feel much better. - o - FIRST I RECEIVED A MOST WELCOME letter from a reader who prefers that Tdo not use her name. She says she finds the subjects I write about most interesting and she made some good suggestions for future column material. She lives near Burt on a farm with a lovely name. Why don't more farmers give their home places names? It seems to me a nice custom. Not the sickenly coy names people sometimes tack up on their lake cottages, but names that fit the location and character of the farm. - o - THEN THERE WAS A PHONE CALL that made me feel good. It was from Mrs. Julius Capesius of Bode. I hope I have the name right - the children were making quite a bit of noise at the time. She asked about the fourteen-day pickle recipe and she also said that she likes this column's recipes and uses or saves most of them. She promised me some of hers to share with you. - o - THERE WAS AN ITEM IN THE PAPERS that should encourage those of us who are homemakers by choice or by necessity. The Duchess of Windsor, long on the best-dressed lists, says she really isn't very interested in Fashion. What she really prefers is housekeeping 1 I really didn't think it of her, but I suppose she is just a home girl at heart. I'll bet she is a whizz on the business end of a mop. Do you suppose Edward threw over the throne of England because of the way she whips up roast beef and Yorkshire pudding? GRACE -30- Prof. Sam B. Sloan, 92, one of University of Iowa's most respected and loved professors, passed away May. 1. Prof. Sloan was a graduate of Logan High School and had taught at Iowa City nearly 70 years.
