THE WOMEN it By Ruth Millett, NBA Staff Writer Waiting Up for Daughters Safer-Even if 'Outdated' Should the mother of a teen-age girl wait up for her when tlie girl is out on a date? The mother of a 16-year-old hi"' school junior wants the answer to that question. A lot of modern mothers will disagree with me, I'm sure, but I think the answer is -i emphatic "Yes.- • Because a girl is likely to be a ' little more responsible, if she knows' her mother will be waiti- 0 up for; her, Irian If she feels she is strictly i "on her own." ! She's more likely to get home on time if she knows that by staying out later than she Is supposed to she'll be keeping her mother up. I And a girl can be pretty indefinite! about the time she got in,- i[ no : one heard her when she came home. Then, too, there's the matter of drinking. Every mother wants to. feel she can tri'sl her daughter implicitly. Bvl the sad truth is that a girl who knows she doesn't have to face R parent when she gels home is more likely to be persuaded to take a drink lhan the one who knows she can't get by with it nOESN'T HURT THE YOUNO MAN And It doesn't hurt tbe young man to know that he is out with a girl whose mother is concerned enough abovt her welfare so thai she makes it a rule not to go to bed until h daughter is safely home. Wailing up for daughters is somewhat out of style these days. S<> much so that a daughter may even protest that none of the other girls' mothers wait up for them. But it's just as good an idea as it ever was—old-fashioned though it may be. And a daughter won't really object if her mother doesn't make any of the following mistakes. If she doesn't: Meet the girl at the door in a frumpy-looking housecoat. ' Complain about how lale it is. instead of greeting her with a smile. Let her get the idea that she waits up for her because she doesn't trust her. rather than Y>eeause she likes to have her children safely under their own roof before she goes to sleep herself. FoRYouR CONVENIENCE In homes, most ice is used for the preservation of foods, but there are many additional uses which interest every homemaker. Successful hostesses use our crusher! ice freely in the preparation of crisp salads, trozen desserts, unusual dishes of all kinds. And, of course, crushed ice is at its best in cooling drinks of all kinds....and entertaining is easier when there's plenty of genuine, hard frozen crushed ice on hand! Ark-Mo Ice Co.
