6-Algena (la.) Upper Oe* Moin«i Thursday, Aug. 31, 1967 EDITOR'S NOTE: This edition of Woman's World is a reprint from the Tuesday, January 29, 1952 issue of the Algona Upper Des Moines. THERE IS A LADY WHO HOLDS A very special place in the hearts of all children who are lucky enough to have at least one of her kind. She doesn't have to be young and beautiful to hold the affection of her admirers, though most of the time she is very attractive. She doesn't have to bribe her way into hearts, though she is often the willing victim of many a childish chiseling scheme. She goes by many different names, for she is really many persons with one thing in common-her title, "Grandma." THE REASON THAT GRANDMOTHERS inspire so much love in the hearts of their grandchildren is that they love the little ones so uncritically. They can be perfect little fiends, according to their parents reports, but Grandma never really believes they are truly bad - just tired, cross or misunderstood. The funny part of it is Grandma is so often right in her diagnosis. Anyway there are few tears that she can't dry by a session of lap-sitting, cookie-giving or story-telling. - o - MANY PEOPLE BELIEVE THAT grandmothers spoil children. That's an unfair, disgraceful, libelous statement with just a little truth in it. Most grandmothers don't even bother to deny it, knowing that "spoiling" is one of the natural rights that automatically comes to her with the birth of the first grandchild. Personally, I think that there never was a child who was spoiled by too much loving from his grandmother or from anybody else, for that matter. Neglect and then over-indulgence might do the trick, but not the understanding, steady kind of love put out by most grandmothers. - o - GRANDMOTHERS ARE PEOPLE WITH very long memories. No matter what naughtiness a parent tells her a child has committed, Grandma can always remember some mischief fully as bad, or worse, that Mom or Dad got into when they were little. - o - GRANDMOTHERS ARE PEOPLE who carry treats in their pockets or purses. Our Grandmothers know it is dangerous to come to our house without at least a stick of gum. Ifs been some time since either of them has eaten the candies or taken home the favors from a party for these are saved for treats for the grandchildren. With the increasing number of grandchildren on both sides of the family, this problem gets more and more complex. It takes the skill of adiplomat for Grandma to treat each one equally. - o - GRANDMOTHERS ARE PEOPLE WITH LAPS. The human anatomy is the same as it has always been, as far as I know, but today's For Convenience For Friendliness ike Atmosphere For Luxury Accommodations ... For Budget Rates...

We use our laps for cuddling children much as they do, butFm always amazed when Grandma parks a baby on her lap, picks up the infant's heels, and skillfully rediapers him. Three babies have made me pretty proficient at changing pants, too, but unless I have a bed or other flat surface on which to work, Pm all thumbs. And laps were made before bathinettes, Pm told, because the grandmothers always hold the baby there when they bathe him. - o - GRANDMOTHERS ARE PEOPLE WHO think that there is some danger that the little ones may starve to death. When we go to Grandma's, her first words are often, "Lef s see, Billy, or Mary Ann or Jeannie. What shall Grandma give you to eat?" Even during those infrequent times when the cupboard is bare, or the cookie Jar is empty, a piece of stale cake or a soda cracker tastes wonderful, simply because it comes from Grandma. - o - "THE WAY TO A MAN'S HEART is through his stomach," the old saying has it Food can also be one of the ways to the heart of a grandchild. My husband and I are both privileged to have many warm memories of our grandparents during the years we were growing up. So many of these memories of Grandma are connected with food. Cookies, by the dozen, dill pickles and ham stew. There was one Grandma who peeled hundreds of lima beans because a certain boy disliked eating the skins. My grandmother took the seeds out of thousands of tiny, red berries by the sense of touch, because she was almost blind, so that she could make us our favorite Choke Cherry pie. Neither of us has eaten lima beans like that or that kind of pie for years but we agree that it would never taste the same if it were prepared without Grandma's patience and love. Both Grandmas are gone, but their memories have outlived them. - o - GRANDMOTHERS ARE JUST THE SAME as they always were. Ifs just their outward appearance that has changed. Today Grandma can be found driving a car or enjoy ing the sport in bowling alleys or golf courses. Often Grandma dances as well as her teen-aged granddaughter. She's more of a social asset than a wet-blanket when if s party time, though she's the world's best babysitter when she isn't going to a party of her own. - o - GRANDMA HAS TRADED IN HER little lace cap for a slightly giddy hat. Her hair may be gray but she sees to it that it is arranged so that it's more a mark of distinction than a sign of age. She uses cosmetics skillfully in spite of the teachings of her youth about 'painted women'. In fact, if s getting so it's pretty hard on would-be wolves. When you see a slick-looking number walking down the street, you are taking a big chance if you whistle at her. She's very apt to be somebody's grandmother I GRACE Louise Paul sen Weds Roger Rochleau Aug. 13 Grain Storage Bins Being Sold Rapidly A number of farmers have inquired about the excess Commodity Credit Corporation-owned grain storage bins which are being offered for sale, to farmers who are interested in storing grains to help support prices, R.L Anderson, chairman, ASC county committee, said today. The offer includes not only selling the bins to eligible farmers, but also dismantling them and transporting them from areas of heavy concentration into southern and northeastern areas where a possible shortage of storage space may occur later this fall. Farmers eligible to buy the bins will certify that the bins will be used for storing and handling agricultural commodities. About 10 days after the opera- • tion started, firm orders had been received for rboutlSOtruckloads of the disma.. •* bins, with 8 to 10 bins to each lu According to the chairman, farmers needing additional storage for their grain and soybean crops who are interested in these sales of excess CCC bins should get in touch with their local ASCS county office for further details. The bins will be sold by competitive bids through public bidding or sealed bids, at not less than the established minimum price.
