4kAlflofiB (la.) Upper De* MotnM thur*ttay,.May 30, 1957 This time of the year, wan so many grade senooi programs being prdsenied, our attention is often caned to oia lamuiur lairy tales. D'or me, tne story oj. Cmcietella ana her Princd, anci tne piignt ol the Ugly UucKlings have never lost their cnartn. Anu, though there are times nowactayb when 1 envy the Princess wno slept for a hundred years, I can still get a little indignant, at tnt vviich who caused the young lady to prick her finger wnn a spmcut | just because she wasn't invited to the Princesses' Christmas party. * » * I was pretty gullible when was a child but tairy stories did not completely fool me even in those days. iNot that it kept me from reading them anyway, but already I nad run up against quite a few situations that couldn't be solved with the wave of a magic wand. I'd still like to have a first class Fairy Godmother at my beck anj can and 1 could those bottles use a couple 01 with the ouilt-in Genie, .but life is reai ana veiy earnest and you "can t hardly get none" ot that stulf, any more. The authors of fairy stories are almost without exception, unknown, anu tne sources or tne tales lost in antiquity. But wonder what wouia nappen 11 someoody did a re-write job on the plots of tnese tales and made them conlorm more to the way they would happen in every-day Jiie. * * * Take, Cinderella, for example. That business about her slaving all day over a hot stove and scrubbing and sweeping is quite believable because 1 know it can happen even if a gal doesn't have a ciuel stepmother. I will also buy the part where the Prince iaUs tor Cinderella at the bah because the magic of love at first sight still operates'today. But 1 have my doubts about any pumpkin turning into a gold coacn ana 1 maintain that rats and rmc3 wouldn't make very good horses and footmen even if thoy were enchanted. The episode in Cinderella 1 simply won't swallow if we are going to keep it in the realms of realism is when the Prince comes around with the glass slipper on the day after the ball. If Cinderella danced as much as she was supposed to have, her feet would be several sizes larger and the slippers would not fit no matter how Maybe we snouid leave lairy stories alone In their origina .versions. Kids have to face tne grubby facts of earning a living soon enough so if tney can ge a little encnantment out of "let's pretend" perhaps we snouid lee them do so. Soon enough they'll find out that Knights don't come calling on White Chargers, Kings, don't give up half their kingdom for being kind to a Prince in disguise and that the Golden Fleece or the magic apple is no substituc for plain old-fashioned . haru work. Besides, 1 sort of like to dream a little, myself. - * * # Our Hillesl one, Jeania seems to have a small talent for making up siories. bne JaDoriousJy pnnts down episodes and presents some of them to her teacner. One day she came home eiated because her teacher had commenced on one of her essays. "Mrs Larson read my story and she says I'm going'to be just like my mother.' J. was quite pleaded and i still would be If jeanie hadn't-adued bne question — "Say, Mama, is that good or bad?" * * * Liiile Richard Schildtknechl 2% year'oid son of Betty and Walter Schndtknecht had quite a harrowing experience latdiy. AC leasi it was exuemeiy narrow ing lor nis parems. Kich ard got • into his sister, Ann' purse, took out a jacK and pro ceeded to swallow it. It didn' go all the way down and a trip to St. Ann revealed it was stuci in his .esophagus. Specialists were alerted at Fort Dodge and the Schildtknechts sped in tha direction. Richard siept calmly all the way. The jack was extracted witn instruments 3nd al the little boy suffered from the deal was a sore throat and lever. His parents, however, agec ten years, no .matter wnat me number of their birthdays read —GRACE. w'ai pitied and _„,..__.

Besides, what's so darned romantic about having small feet? * * « Jack-in-the-Beanstalk was a character without much sense. He took his poor widowed mother's cow to market and got conned out of it. He ended up with u handful of beans. Boy, was hit mother mad! I can't say I blame her, either, but really if she wort as hungry as they've always said she was, she wouldn't have, thrown the beans out of the window fur the bean-talk to grow. She would hava beat her son, put the beans ia a pot, add ed a ham bone and made bean soup. But then, generations 01 small-fry would have been cheated out the Giant's scairy* chant, "Fee Fie, Fo, Fum! 1 smell the blood of an Englishman!" * * *. Hcd Riding Hood wes a myopic young lady on the way to visit her Grandma. She must havi: needed {'lapses badly it' she cnul:t not distinguish a wulf from h-.-r own grandmother. Girls nowadays are instructed umie carefully about buddying up witli strangers but then they have the advantage of knowing t h a; wolves often have crew cuts and drive sports cars. On the other hand, as long as we're keeping this realistic and knowing how the gals keep their figures nowadays, it might very well be that the wolf would pass Reel Hiding Hood up entirely and do all hit, whistling at her grandmother! « f » King Midas was a guy with Jhe golden touch. If he were living today his address would probably be somewhere in Texas. Hi would undouijU'dly own all llu. Uranium mines, the jet plane factories, Standard Oil, United Steel and General Motors. Ev;-n if he gave up any of his inter e^ts to go to Washington, t:u. company would keep on piling up dividends for Midas just from his having once touched it. All o! the money hu sent in to the Department of Internal Revenue would somehow come b;;ek as refunds because of a new rulirij, on corporation taxes and I know blamed well to which political party he would belong. King Midas gol into trouble in the olo story when he touched his beloved daughter and she, too turned to gold. This could b<.' avoided in a modern version. If we can believe half of what wt hear about important executive:; Midas would be far too busy counting his gold to pay attention to his family. The nearest he would get to his daughter would be the letters he has his •secretaries send to school and camp with tlv notation, "check enclosed."
