;IW«HM$*^ SEVERAL YOUNG PEOPLE 1 Know have never done a lick ot work in their lives. They lie a- rpund 'and somebody waits on them hand and foot, Some of them sleep all df.y and raise heck all night and if they don't get exactly what they Want, precise 1 - ly when they want it, they raise an awM ; 'howl. They jjdemand vast .^quantities of clean clothing, especially in the lingerie department, and so far as I know, not a single one of them has ever volunteered to help mother with the laundry. « * • * ALMOST WITHOUT EXCEPTION, (here young people'get by on their charm. Staid husbands, and faithful wives make no bones about being in love with them, and they in turn, flirt shamelessly with anyone handy. -They permit all sorts of familiarities including kissing, patting, chin chucking, and never seem to be embarrassed at .being caught in somebody's arms. Although some of them later regret their youthful indiscretions, some of these people .actually pose for pictures in the nude, in the presence of photographers of the opposite sex! * * * THESE SCANDALOUS young people drink like .fish! They don't limit themselves to an ocassional sip at the cocktail hour, but they start right in With a drink^the first thing in the morning. Often they waken'from a sound sleep, lake a few swigs from, a bottle, and pass out again. They drink more than they eat, but it seldom seems to affect their health • except to give them quite rounded tummies. Alcoholics Anonymous can be of absolutely no, aid .to them because to be helped by that worthy 01 jnnization, ; one must admit he needs help. I have never once heard' one of them say that he did!. ..» * * : ; IN SPITE OF ALL THIS laziness, these young people have awfully good reputations. Levelheaded ;adults don't care a bit that they aren't useful, they love to have them around , because they are 'so decorative and,enter-i taining. On these -young people are stakedTHfe incomes and hopes for" the future, only to be thanki fid by a coo and a bubble .blown from the mouth .of a young person. And sure enough, wait and see almost- all of them -will turn out just fine, once they've matured a bit. For these young peo- ple'are babies and this is National Baby Week. . I AM ALL FOR BABIES. I've been crazy about them almost ever since I was one myself. My taste in art runs strongly to pictures of cute babies, and I've al- been nn Inveterate pecker- intO'Of'carriages and a who- dcies-he-look-like debater. When t Was -ten years old, my parents Surprised ; me by getting a new baby; for bur very own family, and After that one depreciated into a toddler, I started borrowing neighbor's and friends' babies ,to sit with and admire. .• " - * * * MY VERY BEST WORK TO date has been my collaboration •With a guy I picked, in the producing of three of the finest samples of babie's to have around our own house. I shall probably never stop bragging about this achievement, although some people have said that these samples, th6ugh very good ones, were no nicer than .the ones they had at their own houses. the shoe with the maoio salt COMPORT... **;_ With every charming..

No matter how proud you arc of them and no matter what good care you take of them, they don't last Very long. In my case, I had just gotten nicely into the routine ot polishing, smoothing and stuffing ours, when one day when I was busy hanging up the clothes, the first One walked off to school. The other two soon followed and it wasn't long until we didn't have a single baby at out* house! • ;.-•:_* * - * THE THREE YOUNG ADULTS that seem to have overnight, replaced my sweet, fat babies, are very nice 'and extremely interesting, I w'ill have to admit. They iron their own . blouses now, • especially the' ruffled ones, '• they earn their own' spending money by baby-sitting and part-time jobs, and each of them can whip Up a tasty meal if it is necessary. 'But in some ways, I still wish they /were • babies. In those days I didn't have to try to keep up on information such as what the Security Council of the Unitec Nations is doing lately, and the correct length of skirts this year so that I could carry oh conversations with them. Back when they were babies they were very ihpressed with my recitation ol Peekaboo -Where's -The.'rBaby?, and they would laugh at any joke I iold without any comments on how corney I car], get. • w * • * A H0PEFUL, NOTE FOR, THE future Is that some of. my love for babies seems to have rubbed off ' on the three young adults. Even our deep-voiced high school senior,, often 'remarks ' that 'he sure likes little kids and the girls have' two or three infants of theii baby-sitting customers' -whose new teeth and progress in sitting up they' follow with avid interest. I am counting oh these factors to bring me someday, 'in the fullness tof time, a " whole flock' of baby grandchildren to love 'and a'd- mire.
