ISC-J be iure your supplies are adequate. Even reluctant eaters of the small-fry variety develop man-size appetites when they're outdoors. Experienced campers find a hearty breakfast is a good beginning for the day's activities. Lunch can be light and certainly shouldn't call for any extensive culinary effort on your part. Most families enjoy sandwiches, a beverage, fresh or canned fruit and perhaps cookies. For dinner, you'll probably want to have a main dish, a vegetable, salad or relishes, dessert, and coffee or tea for the grownups and milk for the children. A two-burner stove is adequate for small families and campsite gourmets may prefer a three-burner stove. To simplify your fuel requirements, choose a camp stove that burns any gasoline. Be sure to pack a first-aid kit and remember to include cold tablets just in case someone gets the sniffles, and any special medicine or prescriptions required by any member of your family. All in a l l , it looks as if camping has become a woman's world. Even tents have changed their colors and have gone from drab greens and khaki to many splendored red, blue, yellow and orange. Now t h a t c a m p i n g h a s joined the realm of gracious living, is it any wonder women have rediscovered the great outdoors. Rediscovered? Yes . . . after all, Eve was our first lady camper and quite an outdoor girl in her own right.

Not only are women camping, but they're loving it. Today's camping equipment has been geared to the fairer sex and camping has become a wonderfully inexpensive and rewarding family affair with almost all the c o m f o r t s of home. More and more women are discovering camping has kept pace with today's convenience-blessed world. Camping no longer means roughing it. Instead, the lady of the house, or rather of the tent, may look forward to campsites with picnic benches and tables, drinking water, washrooms with hot and cold running water, showers, laundry facilities, garbage cans, a grocery store and sometimes even electricity. Swimming pools and swings and slides for children aren't unusual either. In fact, camping has become so soft, we've heard of some distaff campers who j Wheeling ^Offers Two Parks The non-political Wheeling Park Commission is responsible for the two major, year- around city parks in the city. Both are among the finest in the United States. WHEELING PARK is on U. S. 40 and comprises 135 acres.

Modern supermarkets found along the highways and byways in your travels from campground to campground will provide almost the same menu variety your family en- joys at home, so dispel any thoughts you may have of a steady round of dinners taxing your ingenuity with a can of luncheon meat or a jar of chipped beef. Generally, appetites are sharper on a camping trip so OPENMON. Till 9 P.M. JEWELERS 103 CAPITOL ST.
