My wife, June (the Home Economist), informed me of her tight schedule for the coming month and put the "soft sell" on me to write her column this week. After all, as she put it, living together for over three decades, some Home Economics Ideas should have rubbed off on me. Expressing myself on paper is not really "my bag." After being a sales supervisor for Colgate- Palmolive for many years, "talking a sales pitch" is more my line. But if you'll suffer along with me, maybe I'll be able to fill up a few spaces. Any research I have done on Home Economics subjects has been made very easy for me over the years. Everywhere I look about the house are books, magazines, cut-outs, or reams of printed materials from Iowa State on the subjects of foods, clothing or home decorating. In any corner you might find a 4-H project or experiment in progress. This week it's a decorated box for clothing labels. Labels! She's really brainwashed me on those. I'm a regular Sherlock Holmes as I search for 65 percent and 35 percent or 100 percent tags on everything I buy — even to reading the fine print. Sometimes I think I'm married to a "pack rat" or a woman truck driver when I see her load the car up for a lesson. I can hear you men saying, "Bet he eats good, though." The meals are great — we're always trying delicious new recipes so she can pass them on to you. Then as I sit drooling with fork poised, she comes up with, "Now let's see — I'll have to figure how many calories are in this." Crash! Bufyou can just bet I get the right vitamins every day and not in a pill. Then there are those days I look in the refrigerator — it's loaded with interesting things. But I want to tell you — don't get excited — they will all be marked, "Hands off — for Tuesday's class!" There are times I think I should join a 4-H club so I can understand her better when she talks in her sleep. Besides that, I could learn a lot- they really get things done. One of my most pleasant experiences is meeting and becoming friends with so many people she works with. But all her talking finally came PAUL STE INBORN June's Husband home to roost. She tells everyone to sew on double knits for "their man." Last Christmas I enjoyed the homemade ties, but this Christmas that old spirit really took over — new double knit slacks and in the "makings," a double knit jacket. So things sort of pay off if you're patient. And speaking of patience— If I put those two green buttons off my sweater in a really prominent spot, she just MIGHT see them some day as she's dashing through. Oh, it may not be soon, but when it gets done, it will be done right — the Home Ec method. Never a dull moment being married to a Home Economist- Have a happy week. PAUL CP. S. Yes, Readers, there is a Paul. This is my answer to those who always say, when I introduce him, "Oh, there really is a Paul. We thought she made you up." JUNE) Executive Board Leads Program The ELCW executive board was in charge of the program when the Estherville Lutheran Church Women met 2 p.m. Jan. 13 in Bethany Hall. Mrs. Oscar Engebretson played a piano prelude. Mrs. William Johnson gave the welcome. "Dear Lord and Father of Mankind" was sung to open the meeting. Mrs. Jim Valen led the devotions with a reading on the meaning of Epiphany. A skit, "God Don't Care" was presented by Mrs. William Johnson, Mrs. Roy Wiegert, Mrs. Curtis Meyer, Mrs. Hans Moritz and Mrs. Norman Fransdal. Mrs. Jim Valen then gave an introduction to the 1972 Bible study, "Pictures of Life." The worship meditation was read by Mrs. Curtis Meyer. The Hannah Circle, Mrs. Arvin Juhl, leader, served the lunch. Mrs. Edwin Thoreson and Wilma Gronstal served on the hospitality committee and pouring coffee were Mrs. Bruce Anderson and Mrs. Clara O. Johnson. The moisture at the neck of an onion may be a sign of decay? Look for clean, hard, well shaped onions with dry skins.
