I will bo hnppy to KD on record HK 1o- nounclne JliUicr'K Day. Mother's Day and nil similar cluys us Just so much mercantile malarky. These <jays are wrapped in about, as much tender sentiment ns a fire sale or a bargain basement pre-tnvcntory dcamncc. -Both Mother's Dity and Waller's Dny may liuvc been created originally in u burst of beautiful pathos, but they have lonfr since become merely high - powered promotion schemes to keep the cash registers clinking:. t If all the neckties moved off shelves by Father's Day ballyhoo •were laid end-to end. it would still Be a horrible sight. And I doubt if any bum ever stopped beating his old lady just to celebrate Mother's Day. " These days have become elaborate commercial rackets to sell flowers, candy, neckties, shirts, lingerie, cuff-links, tie-pins, costume jewelry, golf clubs, nylons and a thousand- sud-onc other gadgets dreamed up by the high pressure Kntzcnjam- fflers. /• The hucksters are selling the cuff-links and the golf balls, the ties and "the sox this year with an elaborate campaign backed up by a pious Invention of their own called "A Father's Ten Commandments for Good Citizenship." The commandments are so full of lofty moral sentiments that, for a split second, the clank of the cash register' is scarcely audible. -The winsome letter with which •fiiE hucksters acompanled their ten commandments for Pop. also advises "do a column on father who " should have one day of peace, Father's.Day June 17. Every week day he gets up from sleep, makes and cuts a breakfast ot OrninKC (sic) Juice with suds, burnt tonat and watery coffee, runs to the subway, is pushed on the tfalns, harassed by his boss, etc., etc:" . If these' hucksters promoting Father's Day .believe that this Caspar Milquetoast, this spineless jerk, described above is the typical American father, they rate a. permanent dunce cap and permission to stand in the corner for the rest of their I lives. . In the first place, I do not know what "orrangc juice with suds" is. And In the second, In this modern day and age ol frozen Iruit juices, electric toasters and.automatic coffee -maksrs, even Josephus J. Jukes of 'the celebrated Jukes clan should be able to achieve .a decent break- last all by himself. ; And in the. second place, don't try to tell me that the average American father is a chinless'won- der -who meekly suffers a sloven wife, to loll in bed while he .gets the kids off and mnkcs his own bretikfrtst. If he does, brother, he deserves wVmt he gets. So don't come crying on my shoulder with all this old corn! ! . . •' . There is only one day set aside for special celebration, in 1951 in which I propose to participate. That is. "Taxpayer's Day." 'which the mayor o[ Detroit has proclaimed for next July 4. Tills universal' American, this Mttcrcd nnd' bruised -specimen of fortitude, deserves 1 a day of dedication. Naturally, he will have to pay for it in'! the end. But then, the ! American taxpayer is used to that. ' $20 to $1000 Without Endorsers Borrow from friendly, dependable venient for you. 6, 12. 15 or more, HFC—Household Finance.
