ft-Alaono (la.) Uppar DCS Meiftt* Thursday, March 14, 195? This week is National Gir\ Scout week and there bt ing so many nice things that can be said about the Girl Scout movement I had plaflned to devote this column to that subject. We have a Brownie and an Intermediate Scout at our house and this week they are having ample opportunity of practicing the part of •their promise "to help somebody every day, especially n't home." * * * On Thursday of last week Mama had to go out to St. Ann for a bit of minor surgery. I took the minor designation quite liter* ally and I blithely lined up my affairs so that I could devote two days to the process. I planned to lie down long enough for the anesthetic to wear off, then catch up on some reading and go home and take up my duties again. I confidentaly expected to catch the last performance of Anastasia at the theater and to be seated at church on Sunday morninfl with the Brownies, Girl Scouts and their leaders. It didn't v, ork out the way I planned at all. * * t I don't know exactly what was clone to me for my mind was completely blank for quite sometime, but I'm sure somebody removed all the starch from both my blood and rny bones. Or maybe my stiffening properties leaked out through the numerous holes from the penicillin shot 1 ;. Even now that fm home they keep puncturing me. This is especially disgusting to me for I've always been extremely healthy. To prove this point, I've had only one previous shot of penicillin in my whole life! They treat you very well at St. Ann hospital. The Sisters and nurses are sympathetic and cheer- Does So Much Costs So Little That's the story of sound personal insurance protection.

They wait on you as if you are the only patient in the hospital. But they are always sneaking up on you with a pan, a tube, a pill or a needle. And thought they smile as they deal out these indignities, I'd much rather make all mp trips to the hospital on the visitor's side of the fence. * * * The three books I have read during my enforced vacation were chosen at random, but a.s far as Girl Scout week goes they couldn't have been more appropriate. "Rings Around Us", by Ernestine Gilbreth Carey, the coauthor of "Cheaper By The Dozen" devotes quite a bit of space to being a Brownie leader and to the Girl Scout, cookie sales. (The latter is currently going on in Algona. Have you bought your's yet?) Virginia Taylor Klose is the author of, "Call Me Mother" and she has six youngsters so she's naturally involved in both Cubs and Girl Scouts. She writes entertainly of her experiences in her book. But the book I wish I had written and one that I heartily recommend to every Brownie or Girl Scout leader is, "Just Be Yourself" by Mary Bard. The whole book is devoted to Mrs Bard's experiences that follo\yed when she tried to get her girl:| into an existing Brownie troop. Even as you and I, she found the only way to do this was to become a leader herself. Thb book is from the local library. * > * * Many of the ancient people be- lieVed that the spirit of the devil dwells in the bodies of black cats. I hardly think this is true because one of the biggest and blackest of cats made his home at the Presbyterian Church several days last week. Rev. Brower came into his study for a Trustees meeting on Monday evening and he noticed that the cupboard under the duplicator was ail messed up. He went to straighten out the papers and there crouched in the corner was this huge cat. It was hard to tell who was more surprised, the pastor or the feline. * * * The cat didn't stay for the Trustee's meeting. He made a streak out of there fast, but the animal remained in the church, hiding it was not known where, and presumably living on church, mice. The next day Pastor Brower set out on a hunting expedition. "Kitty, Kitty, Kitty!", he called under the pews, out in the narthex, into the Sunday School department and back of the furnace. Finally the cat was captured, crouched back of the curtain behind the organ. * * * There was a letter this week from Mary McWhorter Collett of Denver, Colo. After reading the column of Feb. 28th on revisions in the natural laws of parenthood, Mary decided to write a few added thoughts. She says she can't take credit, for them personally for they are the ideas of her pediatrician husband who studied under Dr. Spock. Mary writes, "After six years in pediatric practice and! tellinfj other mothers how to care for and raise their children, my husband is now using all his theories and techniques on our 10 inonth- oJ4 little boy. The results so fai} have been astoundingly good and we are two relaxed parents sitting back enjoying the growth an'd development of our normal child." * * * "After Bupergensitively anticipating and providing the physical needs, next comes the emotional development. We try to meet this with the theory 'Discipline is not punishment but a way of life." Of course the degree of punishment should fit the degree of crime e. g. - 1. Running into the street, a good hard spanking, 2. pulling doggies' tail, No. No! (Of course the dog may decide to bite his dislike on his own.") After several more good tips on child rearing, Mary ends, "Junior just pushed over the floor lamp and there are thousands of pieces of glass to clean up. Oh, dear! What degree of discipline is this?" ft* A box arrived from Cedar Rapids and it was full of .clippings and recipes for me. I am presuming that it was sent to me by Gladys Barker for I know her hobby of collecting such items. I haven't yet gone through them, out I dig find, this week's in it.
