2-Algona (la.) Upper Des Moines Thursday, Nov. 19, 1964 1 DON'T BELIEVE THERE is much truth In the theory that advertising is a hidden persuader. At least, the television-type hasn't influenced me mucli. I watch it just like anybody else - fix myself a lunch, read the newspaper or wash the dishes during the programs so that I can get back in front of the set to watch the best part of the show - those fascinating commercials. - o - MY DAYS ARE QUITE ORDINARY. I get up ready to go because last night I saw to it that I'd safe, gentle relief in the morning. Then I put on the coffee. I'm using the mountain-grown kind now and my husband no longer gives the excuse for not having a second cup that he has to rush to work. In fact, he lingers so long over his cereal that gives him 65% of his daily vitamin needs that-he hardly has time to use the blades that give him 30% more shaves than the beep-beep kind. - o - .' MEANWHILE, I'M FIXING his salami-on-rye for his lunctv At noon he tells the other guys working on that scaffolding-at. the'side of the building about how I bag the sandwiches right so they stay fresh. He hardly gets any lunch because he gives the other guys bites to prove it. The kids get out the door fast when the school bus honks, and right afterward a voice comes out of nowhere reminding me that they didn't brush their teeth. They can't always brush after every meal but they do brush often and with the right toothpaste, so I don't worry much excepting about one of the twins who in the three-year toothpaste test was in the group that wasn't lucky enough to get the product so she has 30% more cavities. - o - NEXT I TAKE A SHOWER AND for the first time in my life, feel really clean. We're a one-deodorant family now that we've discovered the kind we used to think was only for men, but when I have to serve all those cookies at the Girl Scout meeting I'sneak back to the secret kind because it makes me feel more than half- safe. Then I have to hurt the feelings'of my cleaning woman who used to work for my mother but who persists in using the powdered cleaner which is all right for quick mop-ups. I take a knife and show her how much ground-in dirt and wax her cleaner leaves and she immediately switches to the liquid kind. . • cause I didn't feed her kid the carrots packed by the company who have babies as their only business. - o - •••'•'•. I WHIP UP A CAKE WITH a mix that Is twice as moist as the homa-made kind and all I have to add Is love. The girls arrive for a committee meeting and they approve of the good, hot soup for lunch, but they say although I'm really one of their best Workers my coffee is terrible. Hurriedly, I use the product that takes those rancid odors out of the pot and brew up a batch of Instant that tastes as good as fresh packed, only some like it better. They can f t cc&i- plain about my bathroom bowl for I use the product that merely bubbles It clean. I also use the kind of cleansing tissues that don't break when Harry James blows his trumpet through them. -?'.< . . | FATHER ARRIVES HOME In record time because he has a tiger in his tank - or maybe Its a glass of the brew that made Milwaukee famous. He has a black eye because he'd rather fight than switch but he got all the grease marks off his hands by using Lav£ ; I . have to chase him around the house a couple times because slftce he's been using two drops of dressing on his hair he Is absolutely irresistible. I don't worry about the fresh-frozen minute steaks burning while I'm doing this because I've been frying thorn in a teflon-coated fry pan using poly-unsaturated shortening. , £. JOSEPHINE, THE LADY PLUMBER arrives and fixes my sink. I had thought I'd have to buy a new sink because of the stains and pot-marks on it but she shows me her cleaner that takes all the stains and pot-marks off it. Then I put on my one rubber glove which is so supple I can pick up a dime wearing It, to wash the dishes with the detergent so lotion soft, I can't tell which hand was protected by the rubber glove. Next my sister-in-law brings her baby for me to keep while she's In the hospital. The clothes in the suitcase are gray, so naturally I can't have them around MY house, so I dump them into the washer with the turbo-flow action using a soap that really gets them white without bleaching My sister-in-law asks what I did to get her baby clothes so clean and says she can always tell when I'm ironing because the clothes smell so fresh. But she never speaks to me again I Must be be- NEED HELP? • . . fn selecting form ensures you maximum cost? Let us show you tha "Country Squire".

Afterward we are riding In that boat and I see that girl I used to know. "Meet me in the coffee shop*,', we scream. I explain to Father that we were In the same clais in school and he says, "Oh, you look older", because I don't use the right kind of face soap. I clobber him with the handbag I got for sending in the soap coupons and $1.65 in check or money order and he gets a king-sized headache. He takes a pill that is 30% more effective than aspirin along with upsetting his stomach. : ;& - o - ' ff >**A AND SO TO BED on our mattress that gives us the rest of our lives covered by the electric blanket with dual controls.

COLONIAL MOTEL Junction 18 & 169 ERNIE WILLIAMS John Peer* Farm Equipment Highway 18 East - Tel. 295-3561 There was a time when confessing belief in God was a very dangerous thing; it meant a persecution, sometimes death. Times have changed. Americans, for example, are today a nation of church-goers. We should perhaps remember, however, that a Sunday-morning spent in church isn't very much to offer God, if we have nothing more to give. To adequately profess our belief in God, we must make God a part of everyday living. We must be Christians, not only on Sunday morning, but every waking moment of our lives. It goes without saying that we shall be judged for more than how we spent Sunday morning when we stand before "the judgement seat of Christ."
