We'tend to acdettt.theni ie way we've always'heard about them but often these concepudnii are n;ore corny than credible. If, we 1 take them out of ftetion mtb real life' We" find they are quite different * * * FOR EXAMPLE, THERE'S THE -"little red schoolhouse". Haven't- you always heard of that ? Have you ever really seen one ? Country s^hoolhouses are all but extinct in Iowa now, but when they wetfe around, weren't they usually white? , , , : , r ANOTHER THING I HAVE ALWAYS WONDERED about has long been featured in cartoons about stag convention 'dinners. Do they ever really have one. of those big cakes that>burst open; and a scantily dressed dancing girl,pops out?

Waterloo came Thursday fpr the weekend in the home of his brother Mr. and Mrs. John Boc- Kes. - i Oscar Behnkendorf went to for a mechanical difficulty, not a sensational story. They was yelling all right, but somehow the words never sounded like, "Stop the presses !" ANOTHER THING I AM WAITING; for irealllife newspaper experi- ence'to bring me is a chance to help the law ; solve'a crime. Anytime Sheriff Lindhorst wants me to dig up> a few 'clues he has overlooked in a murder case, I am available, but I never'get called in like the reporters on Tjy: detective cases do. ' ' ' ...••......* * * jf FICTIONAL c64>^U§tt«LLY,-|all=at ; lgasf a'-little in love with one or more pretty girls in,eVery detective shcXv. They also seem to be able to find out quite a bit about killings b> doing a little kissing so long as a girl is standing around at the scene of the crime, anyway. I doubt that our Algona cops operate that way. Perhaps their wives frown upon it. * * * ^ EVEN FICTIONAL 'FOOD IS different from most of the Vvittles" in my experience. I!m not.'saying people do not. serve a whole roast _ suckling pig with ! a red apple stuck in its mouth, I am saying that'I, personally, have never seen, cooked or eaten pork that way. Another' thing that, bothers me is that although fictional kids always .hate spinach, at our house it is one of our favorite vegetables * * * ' AS THANKSGIVING APPROACHES, magazines are full of pictures of kids demanding and getting a whole drumstick of a turkey to eat all by themselves. They have napkins tied under'their chins and they wave the drumstick around. There are only two drumsticks on every turkey and there is an awfully lot of meat on each one of them We always have at least three children at the table so not one of them has ever had a wTiole turkey leg. We cut the meat off the bone and it makes several servings. Furthermore, I think napkins tucked into the neckline are quite vulgar. Why can't they wipe their chins on their sleeves like they're supposed to do ? SOMETIMES A COMMERCIAL, in'illustrating an easy-to-care-for garment, will say to "wash it just like a hanky" and I've used the expression myself. But hankerchiefs don't really wash easily if you stop to think about it — especially in the head cold season. I guess I'll have to bo a little more careful with cliches. * » « MAE SCHENCK BROUGHT ME a booklet which is going to start me experimenting all over the place. It's for a basic baking mix called "Missouri Mix", developed by a friend of Mae's, Cleta Rodgers and Georgia Amick at the University -of Missouri agricultural experiment station. You make up the mix in large quantities and use it for suven to ten bakings of everything from biscuits to cake. The Missouri Mix recipe follows, and later we'll have ways to use it. 9 cups sifted all-purpose flour 3/8 cup double-acting baking powder 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons nonfat milk solids 4 teasp. salt 1% cups vegetable shortening or I'/fc cups lard. Stir baking powder, dry milk and salt into the sifted flour Sift all dry ingredients together until well mixed. Cut fat into flour mixture until all particles of fat are thoroughly coated and mixture resembles coarse cornmeal. Yields 13 cups and can be stored in covered containers If you use lard, store it in refrigerator. This saves time and is one-third cheaper than commercial mix. — GRACE.
