MARCH 21 1931 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE COOKING SCHOOL TO OPEN TUESDAY Homemaker Problems* May tie Solved by Mrs. Campbell. Beginning next Tuesday after- Boon, Mrs. Ruth Campbell, one of the best known home economics authorities in the country, will start the Globe-Gazette free cooking school. The demonstrations will continue each afternoon thru Wed, nesday, Thursday and conclude en ! Friday afternoon. The doors of th6 high school auditorium, which has been selected for'the purpose, will open at 1 o'clock each day. There will be a musical program followed by the opening of the classes promptly at 2 o'clock. This series of talks will be free to all who wish to attend, without tickets or obligation to anyone. Mrs. Campbell's demonstrations will have a wide scope. Many ideas will be available for use in the diversified realm of running a home. Problems in marketing, family finances, time and labor-saving utensils, menu planning, table setting and budgets will receive authoritative explanation and demonstration v on the platform. Many new and interesting, recipes will be prepared . each day. Relieves Monotony. The complicated responsibility of preparing three meals a day every day in the year can become irksome to any woman. The keynote of the school will be to relieve the monotony of this daily task. Such prac- 1 tical suggestions will be welcome to any housewife no matter how long or successfully she may have been engaged in running a home. The Globe-Gazette feels this is ample ' justification for the service this series of lectures will bring to the , women of Mason City. The cooking school is a contribution to housewives in the conviction that women ' are deeply interested in short cuts- in kitchen and housekeeping pro\ cedure, marketing economies, variety in menu planning and in methods for saving time for social life and recreation. Mrs. Campbell believes the kit\ chen is a laboratory for the full development of cookery art. But t;he i kitchen can become a place of · drudgery with thousands of tiring and unnecessary steps if groceries and utensils are not conveniently arranged in equipment designed by experts to save useless walking and reaching. Home Should Charm. It is Mrs. Campbell's opinion that the dining room should be a charming place in which the family can .enjoy the- natural sociability of meal time. This neeo\ does not involve immediate and elaborate refurnishing, but a knowledge of what should gradually supplant equipment on hand.'

SOCIAL CALENDAR I K S r (l Alas, poor mother, teething is the least of the worries you will have with your children. Walt until they go to school and learn to swear, and get measles and scarlet fever and all the other childish- ailments and fight with other people's children. And then wait until they are courting or being courted, as the case may be, and then see what worries you will have. Not a pleasant prospect, you think, but then, who wants a cafe-free life? JUST AN ANXIOUS MOTHER writes of 'her daughter who is 22 and has two boy friends. One the mother approves of, the other--and she is afraid the daughter is falling in love with the latter--"doesn't care to talk to my husband and me. He seems to feel himself so much better than we." Dear anxious mother, if you could only stop worrying about your daughter: Jf I could make you atop by just telling you to stop. Your daughter may be enamored of this new young man for the time, and she may not. But don't you suppose if the first boy renews his interest and asks her for her hand she will recognize that he is the only one she really . loves and will be happiest with? She must have "Inherited some of her mother's good common sense, as expressed in your letter. Surely she won't _marry a man who thinks--or acts--as if her dear parents are not good enough for him to talk to. You couldn't prevent it, anyhow, if she did want to marry this second chap, so don't make yourself ill by thinking about it. She'll need you to be strong and well in either case, and I, for one, will trust her to do what ia for happiness of all. So cheer, up. I shall be interested to know which one she does take, if either. ' . ' , * » * DOUGHNUTS: It is all right for girls of your age to go out occasionally with your schoolmates if your parents approve. If your parents do not approve of letting the boys kiss you, that is enough. Don't give in. It's a mighty good rule to obey your parents. Let the boy suggest going to a show, but if you want to go to another girl's house, you might suggest that. The reason I say let the boy suggest the show Is, that he might not have money for taking you to the show, and be embarrassed if you spoke of it. I can't promise to give you an answer thru the column by a certain time. I give them as soon as I can. * * * A PUGILIST: If the girl friend is willing to take a chance with you, I don't know why you shouldn't go right ahead and woo and win her. Does she know your history? Most people make mistakes, you know. It is unfortunate that you did all the things you hint at, but as you are sorry and are making a thoro man of yourself, I think you have every reason to hope for future happiness. It takes a good deal of strength of character to nlake oneself over after such a slip. Congratulations and jjood luck.

"We are trying to cut down the accident toll by enforcing state mo:or vehicle laws, calling for the roper adjustment of headlights and the proper working of all safety devices on automobiles." Mr. Moulds said another "safety ane," similar to the safety lane lore last year, will be conducted n Mason City in the near future and it \vill be compulsory with mo- :orists to submit to the safety lane :eats. The tests were not compulsory last year. Properly adjusted headlights should not throw a beam more than 42 inches in height at a distance 75 feet ahead of the machine. The average length of properly adjusted headlights is 200 feet. with one headlight nue north. As a car passed an intersection, the inspector would blink his torch at his fellow- worker on tho next corner. The latter, warned of an approaching vio lator, would stop out on the strec and hail the driver. The driver wa then escorted to a garage and the burned out bulbs were replaced. "Our campaign against violator! of motor vehicle laws is part of a statewide drive to remove thi causes of automobile accidents, 1 Mr. Moulds explained.
