8-Algono (la.) Upper Dei Molnet Thursday, June 15, 1967 ~]/VllIPGtt EDITOR'S NOTE - This column of Woman's World is a reprint from the Wednesday, June 14, 1950 issue of Uie Algona Upper Des Moines. - o - IF THE MAN OF THE HOUSE WONDERS why the children demand extensions on their allowances next week and if Mama writes a check with no explanation noted on Uie stub, he'll probably find the answer to the mysteries on Sunday, June 18, for that is Father's Day. It's pretty hard for a family to honor Pop without a gift on his special day without having him shell out the money for it himself. - o - AT TIMES, DAD GETS TO FEELING he means little more to his family than an unending source of money to pay the bills, a dealer out" of punishment for the kiddies' major crimes and a handyman who mends things around Uie house. But if his family would stop and tell him what they really think about him, and they should at least on Father's Day, he'd find Uiat his stock is pretty high. IF DAD COULD LISTEN IN ON THE youngsters at play, he might be pleasantly surprised. When I am asked my opinion on some question the boys are arguing about, my answer doesn't seem to decide much. But If our six-year-old says something is true, because his Dad said it was, that settles the point right now. - o - IT SOMETIMES AMAZES ME HOW litUe Dad has to do to make a perfectly routine job seem like a holiday excursion. Our three-year-old daughter looks forward to Sunday all week, for that's the day when "I go to Sunday school in the morning and then Daddy takes me and the tin cans to the dump." Mama bathes her, curls her hair, irons her dresses, hands out cookies, takes her downtown and reads her stories all week. And what does she look foward to most? A trip to the dump with her DadI EVEN THE BABY LEARNED TO S*Y DA-DA before she said Ma-Ma. Psychologists say this is because da is an easier sound to say than ma, but lef s not be petty about this on Father's Day, Never before or never again will Daddy get such uncritical admiration from a member of the feminine se\ as he now gets from his tiny daughters. - o - DO YOU REMEMBER HOW TALL your Father seemed to you as a child? "Big as Daddy" applies to more than height of stature. When the children of my family were growing up, our Daddy's job kept him away from home most of the time. We fancied him as a sort of super-human being who wrote us a letter daily, but who appeared in person at infrequent intervals, bearing presents for the kiddies and little bars of soap from the hotels where he had been living. After a few years he realized his biggest ambition - that of being with his family and still earn the money required to support them. Then Dad came off his pedestal and we *discovered we had a very human father, complete with scoldings, pride in our accomplishments, worries over our well-being, and best of all, a wonderful sense of humor that made him a great deal of fun to have around. We had to part with him again too soon, but it is the memories of my father, off his pedestal, that I treasure most today. THE ONLY CONNECTION WITH FATHER'S DAY this week's recipe has is that it is the only strawberry jam recipe the Daddy at our house ever uses. At least, it is Uie only recipe we used the only time he has ever helped with the canning - the summer before we were married. I must say, everything we canned that summer turned out better than anything I have ever done on my own since. - o - WE BOUGHT THE STRAWBERRIES from Ralph Lindhorst and we paid 12 cents a quart for them! Ralph is now too busy as Kossuth county sheriff to grow berries, but he used to know a great deal about them. Mabel Sorenson gave us the recipe and it is the best one Fve tried, I do hope by the time you read this, the home-grown berries will be going strong. Last year we barely had enough to eat fresh at the table, so I didn't make any jam. The recipe takes 4 cups washed, hulled strawberries, 5 cups sugar, and 1/2 cup lemon juice. Cook the berries and the lemon juice together, boiling seven minutes. Add the sugar and cook five minutes more. Put in sterilized jars and seal with paraffin. - o - ANOTHER GOOD JAM RECIPE I'd better give you before the rhubarb is over is one that came from the late Mrs. Lester Wilson, who will be lovingly remembered by many people. It takes six cups sliced rhubarb, 5 cups sugar, 1/3 cup water and 2 pounds candy orange slices cut fine. Boil together 10 minutes. Put in jam glasses and seal with paraffin. - o - THE NICEST THING THAT HAS happened at our house this week is that the baby finally took her first toddling steps. She had been getting about by creeping and walking with support for months, but she has been very backward about starting out on her own. Daddy has been insisting he likes her just as she is even if she can't walk. But I notice he keeps trying to get her to let go of his finger and walk by herself. Baby hasn't found out that she is siow, though. The expression on her face as she staggers aero the room is as proud as if she had invented this wonderful new jthod of locomotion. GRACE Sharon K.
