EIGHTEEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE Drama Department to Co-operate in Raising Money. Through the efforts of the Mason City Woman's club, many babies get a much better start In life than they might ordinarily. For three years hospitalization has been provided for a number of maternity cases through the maternity bed fund of the Woman's club. Mrs. F. C. Lovell is chairman of the committee which includes Mrs. E. H. Wagner and Mrs. Frank Goodman. The late Mrs. George A. Romey was chair- jnan of the work when it was started at the close of Mrs. J. Curtis Amens' administration in- the Woman's club. Six women have been cared for by the fund since last June and there are three on the waiting list at present. In a number of cases probable fatalities have been averted through care in a hospital which would have been Impossible in a home. Money for this charity is raised through the co-operation of the Woman's club drama department which, each year stages a special performance of LOCAL WOMAN'S CLUB FUND AIDS BABIES * Maternity Care Given as Charity its spring play with the pro ceeds going to the fund. 'Miss Gretchen Bickel is chair man of the drama committee this year and will direct th spring play which is to be given Mey 24 and 25 in the high school auditorium. Don't Forbid Use of Slang to Child, Try to Control II "Oh boy!" "Are you telling me?" "I can take it." "Softy! These phrases and a thousand others color our language as slang has colored every language .since time began. For bhey are colorful phrases, and express shades of meaning sometimes not possible with the careful, grammatical sentence. No doubt parents have reproved ttfeir children for the use of slang from time im- morial, and tried to limit them to the accepted idiom, and the children have merrily gone on auilding up the language wit new expressions to suit new situations. Slang is part of the growth of language, and many of the common phrases of today were ie argot of other generations. There is no use in attacking it on the grounds of vulgarity or jad grammar or even of profanity. It is the excessive use of slang which constitutes its misuse and so is deplorable. When every reply is "Are Helping to Keep the Kiddies Well JL HE families with children should never take chances with the purity of their foods. That may sound like useless advice-but it's surprising the chances some mothers do take of milk's spoiling, as an example. Milk is delivered pure to your home. And the only way to keep it pure is in a good refrigerator well filled with icer That applies every day in the year--and if all foods given children are similarly protected--you'll find ice helps greatly in keeping the kiddies happy, sturdy and well.

P H O N E 2 1 3 This Emblem ·Your Protection Properly Refrigerated Food Necessary to Child Health you telling me?" when there is ao term of opprobrium but "Softy," then a protest is in order, not because slang itself is bad, but because the overuse of anything is tiresome and limiting. Children are quick to see the force of so common sense an argument, where they will scorn as "stiff" and "old fashioned" the suggestion that slang is ill-bred. There is nothing more ludicrous and pathetic than the child who is always careful and correct in his use of language. He is sure to be the butt of his schoolmates, and a trial to his Jders. But almost' as trying is he boy or girl who cannot ex- jress an idea without slang or jive vent to emotion whether sad or merry except in one trite exclamation. MORE RESTFUL ODOK We were trying to decide whether to go to the zoo in the park or to go to the museum One of the children, a little girl of seven, spoke up, "Oh, let's go to the museum, I like it better--the stuffed animals have a more restful smell than the ones in the zoo."--Parents Magazine.

ALBEKTUS Home Economist of Peoples Gas and Electric Co. In every home where there are children, the thing of paramount importance is their welfare. Whatever their ages, from infancy to maturity, they stand first in all of the considerations, calculations and plans of the fond parents, who work for them, spend for them, shield them and sacrifice for them-quite willingly--yes, gladly-eagerly. Most parents would part with any, or all, the rest of their belongings in the interest of that one possession. In fact, ·* every thing they have is gathered together primarily for "the children." Children Happier. The purpose of most parents is that the children may live better than they, themselves have lived. When thinking of their troubles, they want the children to have fewer worries, fewer disappointments, fewer hurts and griefs--less to cry about. More and more do parents realize that the happiness of. tomorrow for the children depends largely upon their health today. A healthy childhood from earliest infancy is the foundation on which to build for adult well-being. This early period is a crucial one, during which the body with which these youngsters are to live all their lives is being built. We discover that health, or lack of health, in youngsters, is to a great extent the direct consequence of their diet. A wholesome, balanced variety of well refrigerated food is one of , the most effective means of building, strong bodies. It is also one of the most effective weapons against illness. Advice of" Science. Proper care of food in the home is necessary to the health of the child. Science tells us that food generally shows when it is spoiled by an unpleasant look, taste or smell. It may, however, be contaminated with organisms that make it unsafe for use, even though it still appears good. But a small child's stomach lacks the ability to throw off these poisons. Can parents afford to risk the health of their babies by lack of automatic refrigeration which insures .against spoilage of foods? If there is the least bit of doubt as to the condition of food, parents may be taking chances with the dearest thing in life--health. There is just one way to be safe-keep food in an automatic re- Mgerator -- the prescription that science advocates. Cleanliness Necessary. In caring for the baby, we lave found that wholesome food is necessary. Cleanliness is also a vital necessity. Baby will be healthier and happier f he is kept scrupulously clean. This means at least one ba,th every single day. Most parents realize this, but lack the facilities. With automatic hot water service, this small tasK Is made very simple. After infancy the child should maintain regular bath-a-day cleanliness habits. For cleanliness is a habit--yes, a virtue. Segular bathing of babies is ie beginning of lessons in cleanliness. Very often by ne- lecting to give the child a re- 'reshing bath when he becomes over-tired, he gets up "on the wrong side of the bed," has antnims and suffers from the leat, or cannot go to sleep. A ath, very often, is almost mag- cal in treating these problems of behavior. 'ity Playground for Souls Urged PHILADELPHIA (UP) -Samuel S. Fleisher, founder of the Graphic Sketch club, wants playgrounds for the soul. "We have facilities for those who desire to play baseball, 'ootball and other sports," he said, "but what we really need s playgrounds for the soul. "There should be centers in every section of the city where young people could indulge in cultural activities. We should ;ive as much thought to the minds of the children as we do their bodies." .o. 10- bf
