Walt Disney's ''SECRETS OF LIFE" One of my New Year's resolutions was to cut down, by every possible means, the early morning confusion around our house. I told myself that if I would get up fifteen minutes earlier, 1 could be certain that the kids had a good hot breakfast before going to school and that Father got his full K ounces of vitamin C in juice that he never orders in his coffee shop brcakasts. By using a little foresight, and gathering up the books and laying out clean clothes, the kids wouldn't have to race the tardy bell every morning. * * * Now I didn't go so far as to dream that I would appear at the breakfast table all neatly combed, in a fresh house dress and nicely groomed like they recommend in the articles by old maids in the beauty columns of magazines, but I did think I could manage a splash of water on iny face and a few sweeps of the hair brush. * » * My good resolution is badly bent but I will not yet admit that it is broken for I am still working on it. But it isn't working out quite the way I'd planned. This was especially apparent, the first morning the kids went back to school after vacation. The night before, I broached the subject of lining up clean clothes. Mary Ann didn't have any socks in her drawer. Mama got, behind in the laundry over the holiday and the socks were still hanging in the basement. Jeanie couldn't find the sweater she was going to wear because she'd left it at Susie's. I shrugged off these minor bottlenecks in the plan and said we'd bring up the laundry in the morning and we'd phone Susie and have her bring the sweater on her wav to school. And so, after three or four fights, and two admonitions to settle down, everybody went to , sleep * * * We didn't set the alarm because we always wake up before il goes off, anyway. I woke up at 5:30 which is much too early to get up, so I. went back to sleep. The next time I became conscious it was ten after eight. I leaped from my bed, yelled at the kids to hit the deck, grabbed for my robe and slippers and started for the kitchen 10 make a well-balanced breakfast. No bread. Oh, well we don't absolutely have to have toast anyway, I thought, but we can't have eggs without it. How about, some cereal? Bill didn't want any because he wouldn't have time to chew Grapenuts and that was the only kind he fancied this morning. Anvway, there wasn't enough milk. We keep some powdered- milk for just such emergencies so we mixed it with some chocolate syrup for 3 kind of cocoa. We thawed out some orange juice and we had breakfast even if it was on the liquid side. * * • The phone started ringing. How many eggs did I want to order this week? What was Mary Ann going to wear to school this morning? Are the Brownies meeting today, Mrs Sigsbee? Tell Bill he'd better get-the-lead-out if he wants to go to school with David. Yes, Susie found Jeanie's sweater and she'd bring it to school. * * * Go to the basement and bring up Mary Ann's socks, find the shampoo for Bill because he always washes his hair every morning. Sew a button on his shirt because it's the only one he has that is ironed. Brush the rat'p nest out of Jean's hair. Father leaves for work during this hurricane, but we don't even notice his going, let alone get any orange juice into him. The dog barks to be let out and the doj barks to be let in again. * * • It is not always this way in the morning at our house. We' have variations on the type of confusion. But it always drives me to drink—coffee, two big cups full after the kids have left for the halls of learning. Then, you can almost cut the quiet with a knife. The clutter is still there to be cleared up and the day's household project to be started, but for a b/ief interval there is Peace, Sweet Peace. And it is wonderful! * * * Those holiday delicacies, the fruit cake, turkey, chicken and duck dinners, the fudge, divinity and peanut brittle and the mixed nuts were anything but easy on waist lines. Many a gal, and some of the fellows, too, are ruefully considering a 'ow-calorie diet. If you want a Diet to End All Diets, you might try this one which contains 10 calories. 10 calories per week, that is. It is far from original with me. It was given to me bv Vaunita fientz, whose mother, Mrs Fred Wegerier «f>nt it to her from the Tampa. Florida, Sunday Tribune who got it from a lady in St. Petersburg who clioped it from the Boston Daily Globe. * * * Some of the sample menus ar« as follows: breakfast, weak tea; lunch, one bouillon cube in one- half cup diluted water; dinner, 1 pigeon thigh and 3 ounces prune juice, (gargle only). Another day you can have for breakfast, boiled out stains of table cover; for lunch, a belly-button from a navel orange and for dinner, shredded eggshell skins. I sup* pose for a real treat you might add a pickled hummingbird ton* gue or a broiled butterfly liver. (Editor's Note—Why not just quit eating altogether?) * » » One Kossuth County farmer claims he can go to holiday parties, keep up with the next guy in the liquid refreshments department and still stay sober ns a judge. In fact, he claims that this year, he returned very late from one party and not being c a bit sleepy, he decided to read until it was time to do the milking. "There I was, early in the morning, without having had one wink of sleep and I was doing my chores as if I hadn't had one drop to drink" he said. "That may be true, dear", his wife replied, "but can you tell me what you were doing early New Year's morning trying to hook UD the milking machine in the hull's pen?" * * * I received a nice surprise New Year's gift from Carrie Durant tt was one of her harvest baskets from her garden arid she wrote, "Ever since Halloween time I've been planning on a harvest collection for you, and as I belong to the behind-handed rather than the before-handed variety, you are receiving a New Year's token r.f remembrance." There WBS F nice sack of black walnuts, which we dearly love, a couple of butternut squash with directions for cooking, a pumpkin, a couple of huge carrots with instructions to the kids for making those attractive hanging baskets and parsley growing in a pretty red pot. Thr whole family is enjoying this gift. » * * In my Christmas letter from my adopted-through-this-column, Aunt Hattie, (Mrs S. R. Baker, LuVYrne) was a recipe for a frozen fruit salad. It's fine for the holidays, but if you have church circle or bridge club at your house coming up, it wall do nicely for this, too. It serves 12. 2, 3 ounce packages of cream cheese , 1 cup mayonnaise 1 cup heavy cream, whipped 1 No. 2V2 can of fruit cocktail, drained ¥2 cup maraschino cherries, drained and quartered 2% cups (24) diced marshmallows. Soften the cheese and blend with mayonnaise. Fold in remaining ingredients. For color add a few drops of cherry juice or red food coloring. Freeze six hours, or overnight. —GRACE.
