CHIHMAM- What are you going to do when the war is over, to celebrate the ceasing of hostilities? I have heard this question discussed, somewhat facetiously lately, a discussion that presupposes civilian restrictions will be removed when the firing stops. In all probability such will not be the case and the whole thing is in the realm of wishful thinking. But just suppose—suppose life were the way it used to be—what are you going to do—when you are a frep agent once again? Well—my Gallup poll gives some iiitcre.stiiiK results. Mrs. J. Doukes, of KMI- Away Terrace, is just Roing; to fill up her Ford and drive iiniund and around—Just around. She is going to park and leave tho motor running and then drive .SOUK; rnoro, not to anywhere, just buggy-riding. And she is going to foininanrl her serviceman to call for her ear, and look it over and rolurn it at 9 a. in. sharp, not a minute later, or she'll change garages, and when she finds it at her door, she Is going to tell them to send a man back to wipe off fingermarks on the wheel. Mrs. Leonard Lavin, so my survey goes, will celebrate the victory by taking up the cleaning and laundry situation. She will demand that the laundryman shall call promptly at 8 o'clock on Monday morning, the same for the cleaner, and that the things be back no later than Thursday. She will report acidly a scorch on her best gilet, and call attention to lipstick still remaining on her aqua blouse, and threaten to change both laundry and cleaner—and she promises she will, ton, at the drop of a missing handkerchief. Eating Roast Beef Mrs. George Jones, when interviewed, said she planned to spend tho postwar period just eating roast beef, while Mrs. Silas Smith- Brown states that her activities will lie the purchase of shoes—all kinds of shoes, red ones, green ones, sport styles, platforms, and high-heeled sandals to match all her gowns, with a few dozen nylon hose to help her in putting her best foot foremost. Helen Hokin- sons Lady said—not for publication—that she intends to phone her favorite department store, from which she has carried things home in ton lots, to send her, by curliest delivery, one paper of bronze hairpins. The next day she will order a paper of black safety-pins, and the next two hair nets, to be sent immediately without fall. Her sister expects to go from one butcher to another, promising her trade to the shop that will deliver her the best filet steaks at the earliest morning hour. Mrs. Wellington, one of our better dressed women, is going to look over all the styles, see all the models—every afternoon—and then not buy, and so she will avenge those days when you had to make up your mind on the spot, or everything you liked would be sold, and then she is going to Filing of Old-Age Benefit Explained EDITOR'S NOTE—Tlila Is the thirteen!!] in a series of articles explaining federal uld-tiKQ unii survivors Insurance la\VB. Where should the widow of an insured wage earner go to file her claim for survivors insurance? Who files the claim for her children? How is Hie payment made? When a widow wishes to file claim for old-age and survivors insurance benefits she should go or write to the field office of the social security board. (The address of the Bakersfield office is 209 Professional building, Bakersfield). The widow also files the claims for her children's benefits. The social security board will furnish the forms and will give any help the claimant may need in filling out the papers. If the claim is a proper one, under the law, it will be approved and certified by the social security board for payment, and the United States treasury will send the benefit checks direct to the claimant. For further information call or write the Bakersfield office of the social security board located at 209 Professional building, Bnkersfield. every counter where once she was turned away puschaseless—don't you know there's'a war on?—and say frigidly to the attendants, don't you know there's a peace on! and there is plenty of everything, so there's no hurry; I won't buy. Mrs. Coulter, so my research show.' 1 , servnntless since 1941, is going to celebrate a return to the good old days by having her breakfast in bed, and her bath drawn by a young and willing maid who fears to lose her job, and Mrs. Killer of the Red Cross is just going to stay home and try to make the acquaintance of that young lady whom she left as a mere chit of a child a few years ago, In exchange for war work. And a lady found standing in a queue in a railroad office, plans, she said, to ride back and forth across the continent in a drawing room on the streamliner with all her men Is served in courses, brought in from the diner. You yourself may have other pet ideas about your joyful activities after the war is over. In the meantime a ( letter from London tells of. one' man's war days, of one family's hardships. He served in the last war, a truck driver through all the horrible Verdun area, where he was gassed, and shell-shocked. In this war, his home was destroyed during the blitz of 1940. His oldest daughter died of pneumonia as a result of exposure. His mother was seriously injured by falling walls. His oldest son was wounded In Africa, and his youngest boy has been killed in action in Burma. His wife has suffered a nervous breakdown, and his home has ngain been destroyed hy a robot bomb. Ho. now a mini in his sixties, has been in the fire- fiKhtiiig service in London over the whole period of the war, since 1939. One Man's Experience This is tho experience, in brief, of one man and his family caught up in the battle of Britain, one inconsequential Englishman, symbolic in his sufferings and in his bravery and fortitude, of what a whole people has undergone. We, as civilians in this country have had certain inconveniences, still have them—and may continue to have them for some time to come. But we have little appreciation of our wonderful good fortune. We, as civilians, are, in reality, untouched ky the war—save in our hearts and our affections—save in our conveniences and in our ration points. What will you do when the war is over? How about thanking God, kneeling, that the war has stayed away from our door? PROMOTED—Major Frank H. AVright, executive officer of the Eastern Signal Corps Schools at Fort Monmouth, N. .1., has been promoted to the rank of licuten- ant-coloriel. Prior to being culled to active duty from the reserve in April, 1942, the colonel was an em- ploye of the Standard Oil Company of California and the California Arabian Standard Oil Company of Arabia. A veteran of the last war, he rose through the ranks and was commissioned after attending O. C. S. in France. He was graduated from the Army Signal School in 1919 and saw action with signal corps companies in virtually every major battle. He was promoted to captain in September, 1942, and to major in May, 1943. i Services Slated for Adelia C. Renfro Funeral services for Adelia C.
