8—Algono (to.) Upper Dei Moin« Thondoy, May 25, 1967 ''THE ALAMO" STARTS SUNDAY AT THE ALGONA THEATRE EDITOR'S NOTE - This column of Woman's World is a reprint from the Tuesday, October 10, 1950 issue of the Algona Upper Des Moines. - o - ONE OF THE BIGGEST CHOICES THAT confronts parents is a name for a newcomer. An inappropriate name may cause all sorts of mental anguish for a person and who wants to make any unnecessary trouble for the little ones. But, at the time of birth if s practically impossible to tell what personality traits are going to develop, them. That's why so many people's names don't seem to fit - o - IT HAS OFTEN BEEN SUGGESTED that children be allowed to wait a few years and then choose their names, but it brings up another phase of the problem. Before the children choose their own name, people have to call them something and it is that "meanwhile" for life. So, we'd be right back where we started. We'd still have the name- the parent's first gift to their offspring. - o - HAVE YOU EVER NOTICED HOW, when a name you can't stand turns up attached to a person you admire and like, you seem to lose your dislike for that name? On the other hand, some pretty obnoxious people sometimes have very nice names. But after knowing such a person, the name never seems quite so pretty again. - o - THEN THERE ARE THOSE family names. It's a nice custom to name the baby after Great Uncle So-and-So, even if he isn't planning to leave you his money. But if the name is too odd, it's better to leave well enough alone and think up a whole set of new monikers. I had always wanted to name our children for their grandparents. But what can you do with a list like this: Clara, Rose, Minnie, Helena Katrina, Elsie Jaline, Fred, Winifred, Lawrence, Alexander, Louis, and Dennis. The ones 1 liked had already been taken so we didn't pick any family names. Then, after it was too late, I found out that one of the more distant grandmas was named Nancy, a name I have always liked. Any future daughter will be named Nancy. - o WHEN THE STORK VISITED THE PAUL Popmas a year or so ago they had a perfect set-up for birth announcements. Their last name was printed at the top. Under the word Pop, was Paul under Ma was Jean, and then came the baby's name, Paula Jean. - o - I ALWAYS LIKE TO LOOK at the wedding announcements in papers, the ones listed in the Smith-Jones fashion. In past years there have been some pretty funny combinations locally. When Gladys Rising and Paul Bell were married, it was Rising- Bell. When Betty Barry and Roy Berrie were married, the newspapers must have had to use a little caution lest the announcement look like that vitamin deficiency disease, beri-beril It's a little unusual for a fish to become a fisher but that's what some people could have made from this more recent wedding announcement, Florence Fisch married Victor Fisher. - o - MIDDLE NAMES, IF YOU CAN GET people to tell them, are in still another category. Mine isn't much of a secret since it's the name I write under. In high school they called me Grace, too, but that was because of those Grade Allen skits I did with John Shilts. When I was born, it was a custom of the neighborhood, to have a girl friend of the mother in to take care of the house, during the confinement. Sometimes the mamma was so grateful John Wayne plays the top romantic lead opposite Linda Crlstal In his multl-mllllon-dollar Batjac Production "The Alamo," Technicolor United Artists rc-rclease which opens Sunday at the Algona Theatre. for this help, she named her poor little Innocent babe after her. That's where Grace comes from and that's also how my sister gets the middle name she likes so much - Fern. - o - I RECEIVED TWO LETTERS LN THE SAME mail and both of them from Wesley. I appreciated Mrs. Esther Skew's kind words and encouragement. I remember the nice visits we used to have when I worked downtown. - o - I HAD A VERY ENJOYABLE TELEPHONE conversation with Mrs. Loren Parsons who lives near Algona. We talked about recipes and children. She says she knows the answer to my question of a week or so ago, "what did people use to seal jelly before they had parafin?" She says her mother used to put a teaspoon of brandy over the jelly, then cut out a piece of writing paper a little smaller than the size of the glass, add a little more brandy and paper until there were four or five alternate layers. Then a larger piece of paper was tied over the top with a string. Her father was an ardent prohibitionist, but, she says, she noticed that he was always the one who got the top of the jelly! Mrs. Parsons gave me some other food ideas that I am going to try very soon. I'll let you know how I come out. - o - IT'S BEEN MANY A YEAR SINCE YOU could buy top-quality bananas every time you went to the store. You can do it now. Remember the years when the arrival of a shipment of bananas created such a sense of achievement for the lucky few who managed to buy them? - o - THIS WEEK'S PHILOSPHER , TRIAL SIZE, is four year old, Janie Vinson. I was singing a little song and I told her that her mother probably sang the same song when she was a little girl. Janie replied, "Well, I don't know about that. You see, I didn't know my mother very well until after she was all grown up." GRACE Complete Program begins: 7:00— 9:05 p.m. "Fistful of Dollars"7:30-9:39 p. m.
