It is stored in the cell in 'the form of very unstable compounds. An Electric ROOM AIR-CONDITIONER COSTS LESS THAN YOU THINK! Are you 'Heat Beat' this summer?

The 1 StHct schedule of the school months is lifted for a while/ Kids can follow sports and hobbies they donH have time for otherwise, and they cftn also get a variety of part-time jobs to pick Up some of the lovely, green stuff they are always needing. Families go on vacations, mother has time .to catch up oti her reading and rn£als can be & litifc skeitchy because its Itoo hot to eat, anyway. This is the theory, but it doesn't seem to be working out ithat way. Relaxed, easy, summer living—Ha ! '***... IN THE SUMMER, MOTHER could very well use the talent of railway train dispatcher to get everybody where they are supposed to be, on time, .too, so they can practice .this relaxed, easy Iliving. The softball program Js going full blast, and if. you have both boys' and girls in the leagues, and of varying ages, "as some mothers, do, they are sure to practice at several different hours, and at several different places all across 'town from each other. There are reading programs at the library, crafts, etc. at the school, summer-courses 'in ;he morning and swimming lessons at the pool. And, summer is about the only chance the kids get to .go fishing and play tennisl * * * • AT OUR HOUSE, EVERYBODY seems to have at least one part- ;ime job. This summer we have.had a variety of baby-sitting en- gagemenlts, some label cutting, some store clerking, some substituting on the school book-repair crew, some hay bailing, some' plumper's helpering, and coming up, some work in the cornfields. These .ogether with my own several part-dime jobs, make's me have -it pause and think <a moment before 1 1 can say exactly where each mern- ber of the family is at any one time in the day. ' * * * THOSE EASY, RELAXED MEALS are another of summers fallacies. Those lovely looking cold plates you see in the magazines do tempt >any summer-jaded appetite. The .trouble is that around here, .no appetites are ever jaded—we are ravenous at ail hours. :You are supposed to do your cooking in the morning and just take the cold plates out of the refrigerator alt meal time. But if you didn't hard-cook -the eggs early and remember 'to buy the variety of cold cuts, those cold plates are just as much trouble as the usual meat- potato-vegetable meals. And when you do get something ready to serve, you find' the family is never all there ait the same .time to eat it! * * » AND THEN THERE IS THE GARDEN. One of the most enjoyable hobbies I share with my husband is our vegetable patch. It's a real good set-up—he does all Ithe planting and weeding, I do the criticizing, 'the watching of .the growing things, and the bragging about how well "our" garden is doing. But the relaxed stage of the garden is now over for me. I've been picking beans and peas like mad and snipping and shelling them.' The cucumbers have had- a population explosion and this week I'M sltart pickling. It also looks! like a banner year for tomato juice. • * * * HOUSEKEEPING CAN BE fcEPT TO A minimum in the summer, 'theory has it. This is probably .true if you did a gopd job of housecleaning in the spring las you are supposed' to do. I still have my spring dieaning staring me in the face, and although I haven't worked very hard at it, it does worry me. Summer is ithe wet season even when there is a drought. -There are wet bathing suits, wet water on the kitchen floor because somebody is always taking out a tray of ice cubes (and forgetting to replace them), wet towels in the bathroom, and wet wash that won't dry in the basement because the heat isn't on in summer. * * * ALL WINTER LONG, I HAVE the foolish idea that the laundry will be lighter in summer because ithe kids won't have to have a clean outfit for school each morning. Such a dreamer, I am ! We have 27 bath towels at our house, 26 of which are in ithe wash twice a week because of swimming and frequent bathing! Shorts demand just as. much laundering and as many cleaVwhite blouses as skirts do and the workmen at our house have ito have white shirts for up-towh jobs and khaki pants and shirts for other jobs, aU of which turn out to be very greasy and muddy. .- * » * OH WELL. I'M NOT COMPLAINING TOO MUCH. At least we had our family vacation. That is, the resit of the family went on a short fishing trip and I stayed home and read some books. But I will be glad when fall comes and this easy, relaxed iliving is over. Life is real and earnest ithen and everybody is at a definite place at a definite time. Give me the hard, old grind every' itime ! * * * THERE WAS A FINE LETTER THIS week from Marie Hansen of Ringsted. She writes for several papers including the Algona Upper Des Moines and she too, is haying a "relaxed" summer. Presently they are ready to hit the bean field, cutting the burrs and corn out of it. She says, "We go 8 abreast, 7 children and I. Really enjoy going out, but I do feel my age this year." Mrs. Hansen dost.hec- husband this spring following a tragic fall, and she and her children are continuing with 'the farming. The two older boys are out of school, and if you are losing faith in the younger generation, it might be a good idea to take a look at the Hansen'e. * * * I ALSO THINK THEY HAVE A pretty remarkable mother who writes, "Everyone was so wonderful" (during their bereavement). "We have lots of adjustments to make, but I thank God I have great faith—what else could you resort to with seven left to support ! If you let God rule your life, everything works out. Little did I ever think when I had them 14 moniths apart (the two oldest boys) they would some day father the family. I always think of the Reilllys Q{ Algona—how envious people must be of them and their courage to have such a family ! As I full well remember when I was expecting my children, how people would say, 'No, not again !' and some times to my face. But today we have ilots of 'living memorials' -to remember their Daddy by." , * * * WHEN KEVIN GABRIELSpN was very young he was asked to be ring bearer at a wedding. This was a new experience for him and he told his mother, Mrs. Glen Gabrielson, "I'm going to be pallbearer !" He knew that wasn't quite right, so he thought again and then said, "No, I'm going to be a ringmaster." * * * SO LONG AS THE PICKLING season is already upon us, I guess I'd better give you my favorite dill pickle recipe as I do every year, It originally belonged to Wava Woodward and I haven't found anything to beat it. 13 cups water 1 cup vinegar 1 cup coarse salt Fill jars with cucumbers, several stalks of dill and a clove of garlic. Heat salt, vinegar and water to boiling point, pour in jars and seal. The last couple of years I have made 'lots of the larger cukes into sliced crosswise pickles. You can get lots more in the jars that way and they are nice for hambergers. — GRACE. tuVerne Couple To Wed Aug. 22 ) *fj .
