THE CHANGING JCENE 50 YEARS AGO, CLEAN WASH HANGING OUT5IPETO DRV FREQUENTLY HADTO BE REDONE. YES, IT WAS MADDENING, 50 years ago, to have a nice, fresh washing encounter the trials and tribulations of hanging outside to dry 1 BUT NOT TODAY I MODERN INSIDE ELECTRIC DRYERS do the job to perfection, while the busy housewife turns her attention elsewhere ... her laundry, spotlessly white, is receiving a perfect finish in her electric dryer. And it.costs only pennies! If you're planning to build, or to modernize, you should Investigate the many advantages of ELECTRICAL HEAT.

A S A L L E A I GRANT MINNEAPOLIS SOMETIMES i GET, SICK AND TIRED of trying to be so go] darned sweet all of the time. -This is one of them. 'A ;sweet disposition is supposed to be • one of Woman's most desirable assets* but right now 1 think it is an over-rated virtue. ; < '. " . * *!*;" : : , , .' . IN MY NEXT INCARNATION, I aim going to be filthy rich, devastatingly beautful, wickedly devious, incurably lazy, and I'm .going to have a temper that makes strong men quail, and women do all sorts of manuevering just to keep me'from getting mad 1 # # * •. i • , \ • IN THE MOOD I AM IN RIGHT now I am willing to take back many of the old saws I have always advocated. Virtue is NOT its own reward. There <are plently of people out living it up quite scandalously and they've got it a lot better than most of us who. try to tread the straight and narrow. Working hard and saving your money will NOT necessarily get you ahead. In much of woman's work there isn t any marketable value on the labor no matter how many, hours you put in and if you do manage to put a little aside, the 'government comes in and collects it for taxes. ' - ; * - * * • • MOST MOTHERS SKIMP ON THEMSELVES so that they can buy all sorts of luxuries for their children. Where does this get Mom ? Well, her kids come up to her and say, "For gosh sakes Mom, can't you do anything about your hair ?". Or, "Please do you have to weai* that old dress again ?" . . *. * . * _ > IF YOU BUILD A BETTER mouse trap, or write an interesting book, somebody will beat a path to your door, I have always believed. I haven't built any mouse traps, better or poorer, and I'm getting to the point where I kind of admire a mouse for getting by with his trespassing. As for the book, I not only have never completed 1 one that anybody would want to publish I am still writing my column started almost 13 years ago. * * . * AS FOR HUSBANDS — I haven't got a single thing I can use for an excuse to be mad at mine right now. But, because of the mood I am in,' I am sure looking for one. ,Boy, just let him ask me what I did with his/socks this time, why I don't keep the cupboard doors shut, or why we have to have this casserole for supper, and I'll really let him have it! * * * AND THIS LOUSY, STINKING, WEATHER ! (Come to think of it the weather may be one-fourth responsible for my foul mood. I know now why prisoners go stir crazy). Anyway, why anybody wants to live in this section of the country is beyond me right now. The snow melts down 1/16 of an inch, and the. next day we get 5 inches more of the soft, white, fluffy stuff. The schools no more get into session when they have to declare a holiday again. Then to make matters worse, I go down to my job at the church and the janitor, who has just shoveled a path so I can mush to the office door says, "My feet are cold — that's always sign of more snow. They've got a real big blizzard predicted for the twenty-first!" * * * ANOTHER THING I HAVE to gripe about, is that a foul mood is so hard to sustain. Something is always coming along to make me feel better. By the time you read this, I shall probably be all grins again. That, too, seems disgusting to me right now. * * * IF THINGS GO AS THEY USUALLY do, the kids will perform some task around the house that I didn't even suggest they do. They may even give me a compliment! I can't stay mad then. * * * • AND JUST AT THE PpINT WHEN I am 'most Cynical about the results of my writing, W;I ani just about ready to take up painting by numbers, I may receive a letter telling me somebody has received a lift from my words. Then I'll forget my mad and start worrying about what I shall write next week. And, heaven forbid, I may remember my statement to .the editor, that I would write for nothing, just for the privilege of having it published ! * * * FATHER IS NO HELP, EITHER. HE never gets difficult at the same time I do. When he rants and raves about some problem, it invariably comes at a time when I'm feeling sweet and sympathetic; when I have the weight of the world on my shoulders, he takes his turn at listening to me. This is undoubtedly pure, blind, luck on the part, of both of us, but it has had quite a bit to do with getting us through over 21 years of marriage. PEOPLE, THE KIND WE HAVE around here, are a big drawback to keeping me feeling ornery. They do so many nice things and say so many thoughtful words. I get to feeling sorry for myself and then I find somebody ten times worse off than I am and taking it 20 times more cheerfully, and there goes a perfectly good black mood all shot to heck ! I could cry better if there weren't somebody always at hand to make me smile through my tears. * * * WOMEN'S MOODS WERE inherited from Mother Eve and there is not too much we can do about it. They are governed by the phases of the moon, the joints in the lower sacroilliac and by the peptic juices in the digestive tract. The only things husbands can be sure about is that whatever his wife's mood is, it is sure to change. Men aren't supposed to understand this. They are just supposed to cope with it ! * * * JAN ZERFASS VERVEER mailed me a copy of The Sunburban Life Cookbook from Downers Grove, 111. It is just loaded with good recipes. A friend of Jan's won the grand prize for her Hungarian Roll- M-Ups. Jan pencilled a note in the margin that the winner doesn't particularly like the prize stove she received, but this is her recipe: 4 cups flour l>/4 cups butter Vz tsp, salt 1 cake household yeast (1 oz.) 4 egg yolks % cup sour cream 1 tsp. vanilla Filling 4 egg whites 1 cup sugar 1 tsp. vanilla 1 cup chopped nuts Powdered sugar for rolling and dusting. Crumble together flour, butter, salt and yeast. Combine beaten egg yolks, sour cream and vanilla and add to first mixture. Divide into six parts and store in refrigerator until filling is ready. Beat egg yolks, sour cream and vanilla and add to first mixture. Divide each section dough on pastry cloth sprinkled with powdered sugar, round and thin. Cut into eight wedges, place filling at wide end of wedge and roll up to a point. Place on greased sheet, point under. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes. Dust with powdered sugar just before serving. Makes 48. Submitted by Mrs. Carl Kjeldsen. — GRACE.
