Mofhet'« Day i* next Sunday. Everybody will be saying nice things and thinking kind thoughts about the woman who gave them birth and we who are mothers ourselves will simply glow at having one entire day when everybody honors us. Personally, I mean to get all the attention I can from my family on Mother's Day because the occasion comes but once a year. On Sunday, Mother will be the Queen of Hearts but on Monday she'll be back in her usual place in the deck—working like the Deuce. I really am not complaining about my lot as a mother because the privilege of having and rearing children is the finest thing that has ever happened to me. If necessary, I'd die for any one of our three youngsters and I don't know of any parents who wouldn't do the same thing. But living for and with them, is not only more necessary, it sometime? seems a little harder to accomplish. * * * When the youngsters are growing up, Mother may not be noticed as much as she'd like to be bui there is very little danger that she will feel she is not needed And to each one *h the family, Mother means something different. Although the idea for the- following is swiped, the application of it to what Mother means to the people at our house, is original. To Bill, aged 13, Mother is a person who: Manages to iron the creases wrong in my Ivy Leagues. Overeats, overtalks and gets overtired. Tries to jitterbug with me but can't get the steps. Hands me my allowance; then borrows it back. Expects me to laugh at her corny jokes. Really is pretty handy to havt around at mealtimo. * » * To Maty Ann, aged 10, Mother is a person who: Makes me tidy my room. Overdoes the "when I Was your _ age" stuff. tells me to stop using her hairbrush. Helps me with my Arithmetic and does it wrong. Expects me to eat my vege* •tables before dessert. Really loves me even when I'm ornery. * ' * * To Jean, aged 8, Mother is 8 person who: Makes me go to bed when.I'm not sleepy. Overdoes it in tattling on me in her column. Tells me to put on a clean dress when she doesn't have it ironed. Kelps rne find my other shoe. Expects me to , act grown up and then says I'm too little. Really is easy to get around when I turn on the charm. * » * To Daddy, at the age "when life begins", Mother is a person who: Makes too many of those leftover casseroles. Overworks at outside interests then complains of housework. •Tells me she doesn't want a gift; is peeved when she doesn't get it. Holds out her hand for money Expects me to put on screens when I'm going fishing. Really would be a lot of bother to trade in on a new model. * * * I am. Mother, age undisclosed, the person who: Manages'tempting meals on a Reason No. 3 One Pushbutton Control to WASH and DRY! EASY combination WASHER-DRYER . . . and that's just one of the many reasons why the EASY Combination answers every washday problem you ever had! It's the Most For The Leastl For fytt Home Washingl VISIT OUR STORI AND WATCH IT PERFORM! Small Down Payment Budget Monthly Payments LANE APPLIANCES .The Wildest Trader In Town" very low budget. Overworks entirely in the family's interests. Takes everything tfith unwavering cheerfulness. Hardly ever gets a new outfit. Expects to get the ironing done someday. Really wouldn't trade the people at our house for any other family ift the whole, wide world! . * * * the mothers of the Juniors and Seniors of the local high school, and the fathers too, have been busy for weeks now planning the all night party to be held after the Prom this coming Friday The purpose of the affair is to keep the youngsters entertained and off the highways and to prevent the heartbreaking accidents that could result. » * * The party after the Prom is not school-sponsored — all the planning and work comes entire« iy from the parents. From all reports, they are doing a bang-up job. There's to be a premier showing at the local theater, dancing at the VFW with some surprise entertainment that promises to be super, finished off by breakfast served by some very sleepy parents. Algona merchants are cooperating by furnishing a couple of hundred dollars worth of prizes. It should really be a night to be remembered. 4 • • Now. I realise it is much easier for a parent whose own children have not yet reached the ages for either dating or driving to say what should be done about teenagers after the Prom. So much of our hopes and dreams are wrapped up in those kids that we wouldn't want a single one or them, our own or any others, to meet with an -accident. And I realize that the Junior-Senior Prom is an occasion that the youngsters want to remember with a thrill for the rest of their lives. But I also wonder if it hasn't grown to be a case of the tail wagging the dog. » • * During the Junior year in high school the kids, and their faculty sponsors wofk all year long • raising money to fete the Seniors at the banquet and the Prom. From hiy knowledge of the affairs, they were indeed lovely — the meal and speeches" good, the decorations beautiful and there's dancing to an orches tra uritil 12 or 1 o'clock. Three years from now, I suppose Father and I will be working hard on a committee for an all night party after the Prom. But I expect that we will also be wondering, as- we are now, -^ why -can't the kids go to the affair at the high school, gather at somebody's house afterward for a sandwich, and then go home to bed? * * * The rhubarb patch at our house' is of the late variety su we'il probably be eating rhubarb after your's is all gone. But we have had' some donations of the early-type fruit and a .rhubarb pie tastes mighty good right now. This Rhubarb Cream Pie is this week's recipe. 1 tablsp. butter 4 cups rhubarb cut finely 1% cups sugar ] 2 tablsp. cornstarch < 1/8 teasp. salt 2 egg yolks, beaten . Vi cup cream Melt butter in a heavy pan Add rhubarb cup sugar and cook until rhubarb is tender.

Top with meringue made of tht two whites to which '/4 cup of sugar has been added. Bake in 350 degree oven until meringue is browned. —GRACE.
