Investigate how easy it is to "air-cool" your home for summer 1 Algona Municipal Utilities Phont CY 4-2333 According to most anatomy charts, the human sketelton is made up of such items as tibias and fibulas, humeruses and ili- ums, several vertebras and a couple of carpals. These charts are very scientific but they don't even mention the most highly developed bone in the femal body — the wishbone! The wishbone is a legacy from Mother Eve who, after eating of the fatal apple, became disatisfied with her home in the garden ancl started the precedent of hankering for things she couldn't have. Wishing has been a major past- time for women ever since. * * * I do lots of wishing and although 1 know that the popular song of a few years ago states the case a bit too optimistically when it croons, "If you wish long enough, there'll conic a day .when wishing will make it true", i sure wish some of my wishes would start giving me some results. * • • I wish I knew all the words to the Star Spangled Banner, how many sheets of paper there are in a ream and how many tablespoons in a cupful. I wish I could always remember what 8 times 12 is right off the bat -without pausing to consider and I wish I could remember telephone numbers. I wish I knew what 1 have done with my typewriter eraser and I wish I knew the answer to this week's cashword Cal puzzle. '* * * I wish I had a widow's peak, or absolute pitch or corns that ached me when a rain was coming up so that I could bring the wash in on time. ' I wish I had a Dagwood sandwich right now because I'm hungry and I wish my decent looking shoes felt as good on my feet as my disreputable flat boats. I wish I could find a four-leaf clover or that spare gasket I had for my pressure cooker. * * • I wish I didn't have to get up in" the morning and I wish I did not have to go to bed at night. I wish I didn't have to pin-curl my hair or remind the kids for goodness sakes pick up your clothes. [ wish I never«had to say no to anyone. I wish I could make a Oowline knot like they showed us at Brownie Day Camp. Jeanie saw the same demonstration and she sort of lords it over me because she can tie it and I can't. I wish I had my book review for church circle all prepared. * * » I wish an ice cream cone tasted as good to me now as it did when I was 10 and I wish I could remember how to play jacks, from Commies to Around- the-world, with no mistakes. I wish I had the waistline, the sense of silliness 1 and the anticipation of great things in store I had when I was 16 without the pimples, the self-consciousness and the insecurity. I wish I could write a column without wishing I had something to write about. I wish the idea would spring into my head fully developed and that I wouldn't have to sit here worrying and rearranging it. I wish I could drive a car or ride a bicycle, sew a dress for myself and run a duplicator without getting ink all over myself and the copies. I wish I could speak a foreign language. On second thought, naybe the wish that I could iust use the English language and always be sure of the who and whoms would be more useful. • * * All of us at one time or another have wished we had, wished we could do, 'or wished we could be something that somebody else has, does, or is. At the very sarft^ time others are wishing about us. There is a law of compensation that evens things up. I couldn't make a flat-felled seam if you paid me for it, but if I do say it myself, my apple pie is pretty good and I have a way with beef stew. * * * I can't play tennis or golf but I'm pretty sharp at parlor 'guessing games, I can't read the, alto part well in a chorus but on a sustained note I sure have a lot of breath. I couldn't possibly squeeze into a size 9 dress although I sometimes wish I could. But thanks to a boarding-house reach' developed while being reared in a large family, I'm very good at grabbing things from high shelve* and there is plenty of compensation in that. I wish I had naturally curly hair like some of my friends do. I envy them a little, but then not a single one of them can throw both of their hips out of joint like I can. And, though I don't know how jthls fits in with the theory of the law of compensation, I can probably eat more macaroni and cheese at 'one sitting than any other living person! * * * Wishing is a harmless pastime so far as I can see as long as we use the proper subjects. The real needs of human existence - i health, happiness, courage, security, peace and understand' ing for ourselves and our loved ones shouldn't be wished for x at all. These things should be prayed for. No doubt we sometimes get confused about this and offer up to our Maker, not a true petition but a mere list of whims we would like to have granted. And, too often, we stand around wishing we could be better persons when we should be on our knees about it. Upon thinking it over, that song I mentioned a few paragraphs back is not only overly optimistic, it is downright misleading. Wishing never made anything come true. Praying does. Little boys have long been known to have around such items as snails, worms, dead and live mice and other things equally abhorrant to mothers. But I found out recently that this affliction isn't confined to mothers of boys. Jane Cowan has three feminine offspring with nary a boy in the house. And still the other night when I was down there I plainly heard their daughter, Judy say, "Hey, Mom, when you cleaned the refrigerator you didn't throw out my eyes, did you?" The reply was in the negative and when I recovered from a slight shiver of distaste T found that the eyes in question had once belonged to a pig. Judy had asked the locker plant to save them for her and she was disecting them for a science project! * * * Down at the Truman Simpsons, there is one member of the family who should be in the doghouse both literally and figuratively. June made two pies on Saturday morning—one rhubarb, one cherry, and set them out to cool. She went downtown to buy groceries and returned to find one of the pies entirely gone and a satisfied expression on the face of their Boxer dog, Kids and Father were questioned, the latter coming up with this remark, "It's the cherry pie that's gone. You know I don't consider rhubarb fit to eat and the dog seems to agree with me!" * * * Well. I dpn't agiree with T. Simpson on this point. Rhubarb is mighty good to my way of thinking. Just to prove it farth- THESE WOMEN 1 Thursday, Jun§ 6, Algeria (la.) Upper tot MolMt-9 "Man bourn, man hour*, man hour* I Never a word about WOMAN hours!'* er, try this week's recipe.
