2-Algona (la.) Upper Des Moines Thursday, July 13, 1967 EDITOR'S NOTE: This column of Woman's World is a reprint from the Thursday, July 5, 1951 edition of the Upper Des Moines. - o - THIS IS THE TIME OF DAY mothers hold most precious. It's evening and the children are in bed. Ifs so quiet you can hear the crickets chirping, though the silence can be broken at any time by an urgent childish request for a drink of v.-ater the seventh this evening. BEFORE THE YOUNGSTERS CAME, while the patter of little feet was still a dream of the future at our house, I thought bedtime would be a wonderful time of sharing for mother and child. The little one would be fresh and sweet from his evening bath, the nursery would be neat and clean witli the toys in neat rows and the tiny clothing all laid out ready for tomorrow. The childish prayer would end the day and I thought it would tie with great reluctance that I would kiss the sleeping child and tiptoe from the room. - o - IT'S STILL A WONDERFUL TIME - if you have the strength to live through it. The little ones are reasonably fresh and clean from a quick hands and face washing. The daily bath involves too much flooding in the bathroom. The nursery is so messy, Mama risks her limbs by walking through it. Today's tiny clothing is left in a heap and tomorrow's will be pulled willy-nilly from the drawers when the children arise at the crack of dawn. THE CHILDISH PRAYER IS VERY sweet, although the childish attention often wanders and Mama must bring it back with the command, "No more giggles". I think the list of "God Blesses" gets longer each evening. This is not due to religious fervor, as I would like to think, but to the fact that if the list includes all the relatives, the casual acquaintances and the neighbor's dog, bedtime will be postponed that much longer. The children are kissed goodnight - often several times. Their affection for Mama is another delaying action. I don't tiptoe from their room, I stomp. Often it's with the threat, "You settle down or else-". - o - BUT NOW THAT I AM AT LAST free to sit down to the typewriter to write the column, I find tiiat I am stumped for a subject. None of the items in my notebook fit under a general theme. My husband says I can always find something to talk about when we girls get together even if it's just chatter. So that's what it'll be tliis week. OUR FAMILY SAW THE MOVIE, "Champagne for Caesar", last evening. It was a story of a quiz program genius who was finally stumped by the question, "What is your own Social Security WHO, ME?

In the photo above, three young bathers splash it up between sun-soaks. The girls, Karen Smith, Maria Wittkopf and Lana Bishop, were joined by dozens of others who are taking to the water at this popular recreational spot located 4 1/2 miles north of Algona on highway 169. If you want to beat the heat, take a break at the new lake. (UDM Newsfoto) V put IT Programming Institute t.. I ort Dodge. la. 50501 n (.'all S7li.7'. 1 2S M. Des Monies.

I have been questioned at intervals all day by Bill, who wants to know just what Social Security is, and if Daddy and I know our numbers. My information on the subject is hazy as it is on lots of other things he wants to know. Ifs about time we were investing in a set of encylopedias, though I doubt that they could keep up with Little Willie. - o - RONALD COLEMAN, IN THE movie, came out of the contests a little better than Pat Cook did when she won a prize in a contest conducted by a Des Moines firm tliis spring. Pat was thrilled to death when she received the message saying, "Congratulations 1 You have just won ninety dollars." Her joy was short-lived because she discovered that to collect her money, she must apply it on a television set or other major appliance and it had to be purchased within 10 days. Grace McGraw also failed to collect her twenty dollar prize she won last year, because it was supposed to apply on a big furniture order. - o - ONE OF OUR FARMER FRIENDS has just emerged from the "doghouse" and it took a lot of scrubbing, shampooing and deodorizing to get back in his wife's good graces. A week or so ago, he had two young pigs to sell at the sale barn. It didn't seem worthwhile to borrow a pickup for the trip, so these little piggies went to market in the back seat of the family car. Rumor has it that even the family dog, who loves to ride in the car, couldn't be coaxed or threatened into it until after all the traces were removed. - o - ' SOMETIMES THERE IS A slight resemblance to a car full of little pigs when the youngsters take an automobile trip. Ardeen Sampson, mother of three young children, hit upon a good idea for those necessary quick clean-ups. She wets one of those handy cellulose sponges, puts it in a plastic refrigerator bag and carries it in the glove compartment. For little hands and faces, it works much better than the old-fashioned wash cloth. - o - DOWNTOWN TODAY, I SAW Nell Larson proudly wheeling her grandson, Bill Hobbins, who is visiting here with his mother, the former Meredith Larson. Billy is cutting teeth. He got his first ones when he was six months old and waited until now, three months later, to continue the job. Meredith said he must have known he was coming to Iowa and would need those extra choppers to eat corn. ~ o - I DON'T KNOW WHAT OUR BILL is going to do when his favorite corn-on-the-cob is served this year. Today he lost the last of his upper front teeth. His one second tooth that has grown in stands in a lonely expanse of gum and makes him look like a single-tusked walrus. - o - I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO PASS up beef, at the meat counter in favor of the less expensive chicken, ham and pork, but I find that I can't cook without that old standby- hamburger. Fortunately, a little hamburger goes a long way. Today, we had Italian spaghetti. It was good, but not nearly so tasty as the spaghetti Merle Pratt makes. He doesn't follow an exact recipe, but he must use some seasonings I don't have on the pantry shelf. He cooks the sauce for hours and his wife, Shirley, says he puts in a little of almost everything. - o - SUMMER AND WATERMELONS ARE a natural combination. Recently I yielded to the plea of the kiddies to buy one - to the tune of 10? a pound. This upset the food budget a little so I was determined to waste not a single bit of it. I did throw away the seeds reluctantly - I guess I could have used them to plant next year. With the rind, I made the first batch of watermelon pickles.

Which is more modern—oil heat or gas? The answer may surprise you. Oil and gas are equally modern. Their equipment looks alike and performs alike. Their efficency is rated equal by the Public Housing Administration. There's only one difference. You save the cost of converting to gas. If you want to modernize, you'll save with oil. New Standard Oil Hot Line Heating Service has AMOCO*Sta-Warm equipment that matches any made- gas or electric. And you don't have to pay for a "gas line." Don't buy the "gas line" until you call Hot Line 889-2964 Oil heat- the clean, safe heat. HOT LINE SERVICE §xfi££f more from Standard and you gjet it!
