Then came the baby; Here is a lovely novel that you twill want to follow eagerly from day to day. WHERE CONTENTMENT IIES by SUSAN1VE S H E R I D A N Begins Friday, Jan. 22, in the Mason City Globe-Gazette. Manners Come Before Rank, Navy Decides NEW YORK, (/P)--A man is a gentleman before he is a commissioned officer, the navy has decided, and a woman is a lady before she is a WAVE. Therefore when the senior officer (male) indicates he wishes the junior officer (female) to precede him "then she is supposed to go without any fuss or feathers," in spite of normal military etiquette based on rank, it was stated in a navy publicity release reprinted from the bureau of personnel information bulletin *' * * The announcement Saturday cleared up the confusion attendant upon a member of the feminine arm of the service meeting a navy officer of the opposite sex Military procedure is in order unless the senior officer waives it In favor of the WAVE--and that is because "military courtesy includes deference to women and because a senior's wish is an implied command," the release said. In general, however, regulations and customs of the navy apply to men and women alike. Juniors salute first, whether it is a male saluting a WAVE or vice versa. In the matter of WAVE hats-the women did not know whether they were to follow the usual navy custom of removing them in church, theaters or at mess--it has been decided that they are to be worn "In conformance' to civilian rather than military custom." * * * Still another knotty problem has been solved--addressing a senior WAVE. They have been addressed as "sir," "ma'am," and "Miss." "If the officer is being addressed by name, it should be Miss (or Mrs.) Jones, following the naval usage of addressing all officers of rank of lieutenant commander and under by that form," it was decided. "If the officer is not being addressed by name, simply use the rank, 'Aye, Aye, Lieutenant', or 'Good morning, Lieutenant.' The usage thus follows the marine corps or army custom." --o-FOR PERSONAL REASONS CHICAGO -- Mrs. X. reqeslerl lhal pre-natal and post-natal care be discussed at the next home nursing class meeting. The request was met, but Mrs. X was not there to hear the discussion.

Housewives Help Plan Rationing WASHINGTON, (!P) -- Five to ten thousand American housewives will be enlisted in a couple of weeks to help the government run food rationing according to the facts of actual housekeeping. They will be selected, on a voluntary basis, by regular census- takers so that they will represent a cross-section of A m e r r c a n housewives, according to regions, races, income levels, urban or rural status. Their job will be to tell the office of price administration-through the census bureau--what kinds of fond--especially canned, dried or frozen--the people are eating. * * if. Kenneth E. Stauffei-. chief ot OPA's processed foods section, explained in an interview that when rationing comes, sometime in the next two months, the government will have to evaluate each kind of canned, dried or frozen fruit or canned vegetables by "points"--say 8 points lor a certain size can of peas. These values really will be similar to money prices. OPA wondered for a long time how to find out whether, for instance, 8 points is too much or too little for a can of peas. The answer, Stauffer said, was to ask the housewife, and that's what's going to be done. * * * The housewives who agree to do it will fill out a simple form each day itemizing their food purchases, turn in the sheets every month to a census-taker, and OPA will thus learn the family preferences ot each food at prevailing "point values." It the reports show that an unusually large quantity of peas is being bought, the point value of peas will be increased to keep housewives from stripping grocery shelves of that item. If the reports show no one is buying peas, the point value will be reduced to encourage normal buying. --o-June Hesse Weds Weller Clark in Home Ceremony ACKLEY -- The marriage ot June Hesse to Weller Clark was performed Sunday, Jan. 10, at 2 o'clock at the home of the bride's Jarents, the Rev. and Mrs. G.
