««,; , OWADAY S. PHACtlCALLY EVERY AVENUE of education is open to women.,The girls can be doctors, lawyers,,engineers, business tycoons, and, theoretically at least/think like a man. With the addict ona! advantages of woman's intuition and .feminine wiles, we really should have it rhade! Despite the title on this column, I really think ii is still a man's world. However, there are some things men will never learn but if they want to find out about them, all they have lo do is ask any woman! . ' * * * FOR EXAMPLE,'IF, YOU ASK A MAN what are the most ex-' pcndable things in a household that includes children, he will ipro- ppbly answer—"Money". Any woman knows that the right answer is'things like Bandaids^Scotch tape, bobby pins, flashlights, nutmeats planned to be used in baking, and youngsters' other shoe. Those things all disappear like magic; when, you need-them most. Usually, 'they turn up agairi when you have no, immediate use for them. : .;•;• *••.*•* _ .MOST OF THE WORLD'S POPULATION Statisticians'are men, but if you wamt to find out about population 'growth in your own town, all you have to do is ask any woman .Most any woman, can tell you the names of everybody in itown who is expecting a baby, together with the due date, whether or not ithe prospective addition is planned, plus like statistics on several movie star mothers and women in the news. Men seldom know about these things, at least until the heir is terribly apparent, but women have it down (to such a fine ant they can tell the good news before the prospective mother is real sure herself, and certainly before the future father knows it. • * * * ; ; • • < MOST .MEN, OUTSIDE OF DOCTORS AND veterinarians, can't tell if a child'is coming down with something. Almost any woman, including (those without nurses' training, knows alt once if hefc, child is becoming ill. How we do it is to firat look at, ithe chijd's .ears. If they are.'sort of incandescent, we feel them under the chin; fa see if he's warm. If he is, we take his temperature if we can find the thermometer or if it isn't broken. Then we look for lumps behind the ears which could indicate mumps, measles or a swelling from a clunk on the head. ' ; * * * NEXT WE LOOK AT HIS TUMMY FOR signs of rash, swelling from too much peanuts or popcorn, or lack of thoroughness in removing dirt at his last bath. Then you question him about sore throat, headache, and his bathroom regularity. When the inspection is complete, you give him an aspirin and wait for further developments; or your report your findings ito the, doctor and he prescribes some of those pills that cost 87 *£ cents each; or you conclude the kid'is goldbricking and send him back to school, anyway. None'of this is done without considerable worrying, but the child usually gets well in spite of you. Practicing medicine without .a, license? Shucks, every mother does it! * * • * : MEN ARE AWFULLY GOOD AT mechanics. When you call in a professional repairman they give you all sorts of learned talk about defective solenoids, transactor tubes, heat elements, cam-gears, and the guarantee that ran out three days before the appliance went on the blink. If you have one of these professional repairmen for a husband, he is always out fixing somebody, else's appliance when your own goes bad. Even if your husband is merely "handy around the house", he is never around the house when you-need him most. < * > ! ''*'. ' • . ' : i" WE GALS HANtiLE lylANV MECHANICAL '.problems in our own way. From, experience we know ithat a well-placed kick can sometimes send an automatic washer into the spin cycle; thalt a little adhesive, tape will plug the break in the yaccuum sweeper hose, and that a rebellious machine will sometime,^ change its mind .and perform like a dream if you scold it, shut it off and wait for a while. And ther,earerthings like strategically placed^bobby .pins^snvall plugs "OT chewlrfg gum, broomsticks to stir thl garbage disposal,Va : bit of Scotch tape or borrowing your neighbor's iron until your own gets fixed. Women seldom know why these emergency measures work; we are plenty content to know that they do! » * « MEN CAN SELDOM TELL IF A WOMAN dyes her hair, but any woman can tell you, especially if her husband remarks that the gal with the tint is darned attractive. Men may admire a voluptuous figure, but it takes a women to tell if nature has been helped out . a bit by some foam-rubber padding. * » * MEN HAVE LOTS OF ADVANTAGES. They can get out in the world and do big, brave deeds, and charge more per hour for their time than a woman can when she expends exactly the sam'e amount of effort. They don't have to do nearly so much dishwashing as'most women do, and they can have all sorts of traffic violations without being sneered at as a woman driver. * * * BUT MEN DO HAVE TO SHAVE almost every day; they never can admit to crying when their feelings are touched; and giving birth to children is still a purely feminine privilege. Besides all this, few men ever know the relief that comes with getting out of a tight girdle! * » * DO YOU EVER WONDER HOW a county comes to get its name? Ours is named for Louis Kossuth, a great Hungarian patriot, but there is little record that he ever had a prsonal connection here. However, another well-known Hungarian, Bela Bachkai, secretary of American Hungarian Federaltion, will be here Monday night to speak at 'the Historical Society dinner and to present a plaque honoring Kossuth to be hung in the courthouse. It promises to be an interesting occasion. * * * THIS WEEK'S RECIPE IS FOR chicken and carrot loaf. 2 cups cooked or leftover chopped chicken; Vi cup cooked chopped carrots; 1 'A cups soft breat crumbs; 2 tbsp. minced onion; 1 tbsp. minced parsley; 2 tbsp. minced celery; IVz tsp. salt; 3/4 cup milk; Mix all ingredients and pack into a well greased one-quart loaf pan. Bake in moderate oven 40 to 45 minutes or until firm and Lightly browned. Turn loaf onito platter, garnish with more parsley and serve with creamed peas. — GRACE.
