SPEAKING? CHANGING SCENE 1912-1962 OH,THOSE FURNACE BACKACHES.. SACK AROUND 1912. GONE ARE BACKACHES . . .and HEADACHES, TOO, with clean, controlled ELECTRICAL HEAT, America's most modern, clean, economical and trouble-free system of home heating. THE ABOVE PICTURE tells the story only too well. MANY FOLKS DO NOT realize that electrical heating is an inexpensive method, and easier than most other forms of heating to install in new construction. And think of the space it saves, the cleanliness in the basement. It practically adds another room to your, home, present or future. If you're planning to build, or to modernize, you should Investigate the many advantages of ELECTRICAL HEAT.

Upper Pe» Motn'e^-9 IT tS A RARE PARENT whd has not heard from a teenage son or daughter these words, "tint, Mother, times have changed since you were young !" This has a way. of-making us parents feel perfectly ancient. It doesn't seem so very long ago when we were voicing the very same lament to our own parents, but if we stop to think about it, the kids are right. Times HAVE changed since we were young. In fact, times have changed since just last Christmas ! \ ' 4* • ; *)* ^ AS LATE AS DECEMBER 25, 1961, the space age really hadn't yet begun. An awful lot of wprk had been done on it, but John Glenn hadn't made his phenomenal orbits. Times have changed since Christmas in another respect, at least for me. In December, I hadn't seen anyone dance the Twist. I have now, and I've even tried it myself — behind locked doors. Works real good for drying off after a bath. * * * WE DIDN'T HAVE ANY .such crazy dances as the Twist when I was young. We had the Big Apple, the Shine and jitterbugging was just coming in before I got completely on the shelf. We didn't have any goopy rock-and-roll songs such as "Norman", or "My Boomerang Won Come Back", either. We had lovely ballads such as "Flat. Foot Floogy With a Floy, Floy", and the "Music Goes Round and Round". * * * WE'VE HAD GLOBAL WAR to make times change since I was young, the Korean action and the cold war. When I was a teenager the Depression was our biggest threat and since that time we've had the Nazis, the Communists, the Atom and Hydrogen Bombs, McCarthyism, Fallout, federal income tax and lung cancer to scare us. We've gained frozen orange juice, sliced bread, vitamin pills, cake mixes, home permanents and nylon hose. * * * WHEN I WAS A TEENAGER, WE thought many times that we were smarter than our parents/Today, over 20 years later, I still think we were right in some respects ! Twenty years from now, I hope our kids can say the same thing, because that's one of the main purposes of rearing children — so that they'll be smarter, and better and richer ;han their parents. : *.*.*• WHEN OUR KIDS WERE TINY, I used to dread the time when they they would become teenagers. That, they told me was the most difficult stage of parenthood. Toilet training, strained spinach, finding a sitter when you want to go out, Cub Scouts and Brownies — these were mild compared to the trials I would have to face as a mother of teenagers. Well, all three of our kids are now teenagers and they got to that stage in record time. I'm finding that it doesn't hurt one bit! * * * , I LOVED OUR KIDS WHEN THEY were little, and when I had time to stop and think about it, I enjoyed them. I love our kids now when they are teenagers and I am enjoying them even more. It's a kind of brief olden period in parenthood when the offspring begin to show what kind of people they'll be as adults. Serious trouble hasn't yet touched them and the bright burnish of their hopes for the future hasn't yet been dulled by failure to attain their dreams., They are trying their wings of independence but they have not completely left the nest. But what I like best, and marvel at most about teenagers is that so many of them have such good horse sense ! * * * THERE ARE A LOT OF DELINQUENTS and semi-hoods among teenagers nowadays. There are a lot of delinquents and semi-hoods among the adults, and in about the same proportion. I have a handful of friends who happen to be in the teenages, with whom I can talk as if they were at least contemporaries and 1 know a handful of other people, physically adults, but who will never haye a mature attitude if they live to. be.93%.! ,. ; - ',-.•',... KINS KQRN m ma §§NO STAMPS" IT IS A MISTAKE, I THINK, to lump people into classifications by age groups. If I were a teenage rebel, that's the first thing I would rebel against — being always considered a teenager rather than a person. Magazines are presently encouraging this lumping of people. Whole series of articles in big circulation publications are devoted to articles on teenage problems and most of them present a very gloomy outlook.; I don't like this anymore than I would like being always expected to be a mother. I am one, and very proud of it, but I resent being forced into a mold. I reserve the right to have other interests and people can always be interesting whether they be children, octengenarians, spinsters, vegetarians, Presbyterians, republicans, widowers, or even teenagers ! * * * ONE TEENAGER WE'LL never have to worry about not having enough to do is Barbara Kuchenreuther — at least during the basketball season. Barb is a high school cheerleader, but just before the half she leaves her yell-leading because she is a manager for the Cadettes drill team. While they perform, she rushes over to the pep band to play the drums. Back to the cheerleading, and after the game, if there is a sock hop, Barb is right out there having fun with the dancers. * * * ANOTHER YOUNG LADY, Susie Rentz, who will be a teenager this spring, has captured my admiration with her talent since her very fine drawing of a horse appeared on the bulletin board during her kindergarten days. Her window decoration in the Halloween contest won first over all last fall, even the high school students. She also is a budding writer with her essays and poems. Susie practices most of her drawing and writing at home and for her own enjoyment, but I expect to hear big things from her some day. * * * SONIA ROZA, A TEENAGER from South America, is making many friends in our town during her year here as an exchange student. For a person who had never before seen snow, she is certainly getting an ample example of it during this Iowa winter. Sonia has been speaking before a great many groups since the first of the year and does a remarkably good job of it. Getting up before people to talk is a huge chore for most of us, but can you imagine doing it and expressing yourself in a strange language ? * * '* I KNOW LOTS OF WONDERFUL people around here. Co-incidentally many of them happen to be teenagers ! FOR A LENTEN MENU you might try this week's recipe for Souper Casserole. 1 pkg. noodles, cooked 1 can cream of mushroom soup 1 can cream of chicken soup 1 large can tuna fish 1 can green beans or 1 pkg. frozen Mix together and pour into a casserole. Top with crushed potato chips or grated cheese. Bake 25 to .'JO minutes at 400 degrees. This can be frozen and used later. Serves 10 to 12. - GRACE, plan to spend this week in Kankakee, 111. with his step-mother, Mrs. Clara Forburger, who is hospitalized there.
