MONDAY. FEBRUARY 15, 1971 HELEN HELP US! : —-by Helen Bottel Several Kinds Of Cowardice Dear Helen: ~ there's a man in our office who is a completely true husband (maybe because he is afraid to be otherwise), but to near him talk, he's the greatest chaser since Don Juan. He tries to give the impression he's a swinger when really, the secretaries would like him so much better if he'd just admit he likes his wife and kids. What do you like this? FRIEND Dear Friend: If you're friendly enough to be frank, why not suggest that he "show the courage of his conventions"? . . . And go on from there. — H. Dear Helen: At our church, we pass around a little pouch for collections, so that people who can't afford to match the bills already there can put in what they wish, sight unseen. But there is one person who always puts his closed fist into the bag, pretends to drop something — and never does. He even goes through the motion of reaching into his pocket first, but I know there's nothing in his hand. Now if a man wants free religion, that's his business, but does he think he's fooling God -- or the person sitting next to him? Fll bet he reports a wad of "church contributions" on his income taxi > One wonders if his prayers are answered in the same proportion as are those of us who put$2.00 in the collection pouch every Sunday?--T.W.Y. Dear T.: Probably. God doesn't charge for answering prayers, (though He is not exactly partial to hypocrites.) — H. Dear Helen: You asked for opinions about trial marriage, and you've heard a few in favor from the young generation. Here's what a parent thinks: ' • * Nothing important or lasting happens without commitment A short term contract of marriage by its nature excludes any real commitment. If there is an easy way out of problems, there is no motivation to work toward a lasting solution. How mr~y people would stay together if they could leave with a snap of their fingers? What would that do to the home and family? Besides, the first five years even of a good marriage are never the best Adjustments take time. If a couple doesn't feel it is building toward a future", the two won't bother to make them. And what if one person wants out but the other doesn't Just because there is no lasting contract, does that make the heartbreak any less? I won't mention possibility of children, for 1 imagine the "trial contract" would be different in case of progeny. After 17 years of marriage, ours is more exciting than ever. But if we had been given a choice after a year, we might have split - S. H. Dear Helen: I certainly agree with the father who wanted trial marriages, in ONE respect; There shouJSbeanend to elaborate weddings that cost $2500.001 But perbapyifvjie had instilled more faith, hope and charity into his children's lives they might not have insisted on lavish weddings that would end in divorce a year later — • ANOTHER FATHER Dear Helen: We had a six-year "engagement" which might be considered a "trial marriage" for we lived together three years before deciding we were ready to make it for a lifetime. We've never regretted this. During the "trial" we were more at ease, for we weren't being forced to stay together. We didn't depend wholly on each other, nor do we now. We're two individuals who care but don't lean, and we don't take without giving. — MODERNS .

Dress him in layers of clothes, such as a T-shirt, a shirt, a wool sweater, and a jacket This layering works like insulation. Heavy opaque and textured pantyhose are fashionable as well as practical for the school age girt However, in extremely cold weather long-pants provide more warmth than pantyhose. Check with your child's teacher regarding school dress policy. Some allow girls to wear long pants in the° classroom; others do not Boys will be warmer if they wear thermal underwear during very cold weather. Remember there is a difference in warmth of trouser fabrics. For example, corduroy trousers are often warmer than denim jeans. During cold wet weather, both boys and girls can wear their regular clothes topped with a sweater and a water repellent jacket for added warmth. Hooded jackets can be a very good investment, as they help to insure that your child's head will be covered, to very cold weather, it's a good idea, to have him wear a wool scarf or cap under the hood when playing outdoors. ' For the pre-schooler, mittens are warmer than gloves, as well as easier to put on. If possible, have your child wear waterproof s mittens over wool ones when playing in the snoww It's a good idea to have extra mittens, gloves, caps, and scarves on hand in case they are wet after playing or should be lost They are inexpensive and can be passed on to other children in the family. Regular school shoes inside rubber boots are generally the best for boys as well as girls. They keep feet warm and dry, but should be removed in the classroom. Shoe boots are popular among the girls, but if worn all day, feet perspire and are likely to chill when back outside. Be sure your child's cold weather* clothes are easy to manage so he'll wear them, says the specialist Jacket zippers that don't zip and boots that are too tight are frustrating. H you notice that zippers are beginning to stick, rub them with a candle to help them slide more easily. A long cord extending from one mitten to the other through the coat sleeves will help small children keep track of their mittens. Remember to dress your child according to the temperature and the wind. Children are active and can get too warm and perspire if they are dressed too warmly. This may cause them to chill later. - Mrs. Lilly Hostess For Plum Grove Club • The Plum Grove Extension Club met in the tome of Mrs. Walter Lilly, route 4 on February 10.

Cut The* Heating Bill Snow and cold weather add up to high heating costs, reminds Miss Jan Armstrong, Extension consumer marketing specialist at Purdue University. But you can cut the beating bill. Why not — set the thermostat down six to ten degrees at night to cut the heating bill as much as ten per cent—a savings of $20 and up a year? set the thermostat, then leave it alone? save on electricity or the life of the furnace by changing filters regularly and often duringwinter months? keep the air moist, with a humidifier .if necessary? Dry air requires higher temperatures to maintain equal comfort When furniture starts to "snap, crackle, and pop" your house needs moisture. close off rooms or parts of the house not being used?

THE TIPTON (INDIANA) DAILY TRIBUNE Life is Worth Living Joy - A Needed Quality Mrs. Trimb For Homemakers Club By Mrs. Seventy times in the New Testament the Christian is commanded to rejoice. God wants us to be happy. He certainly doesn't want any of us to be continually filled with sadness disappointment and disillusionment Christians have so much to rejoice about We live in a wonderful world molded and sculptured by God; a world of beautiful purple and golden sunsets; beautiful mountains and lovely scenery on every hand; We should rejoice because of the opportunity ofliv- ing in one of. the most wonderul countries in the world, for in spite of all of its problems and difficulties, it is stil the freest, most prosperous and most benevolent nation ever to grace the earth. We should rejoice because of the opportunity of having good friends; friends with worn we can share the good and the bad. -Many people do not understand that there is a vast difference between joy and pleasure. In our day the two are often confused. Pleasure is dependent upon circumstances; joy is independent of circumstances. Pleasure is a relationship between human beings; joy is a relationship between man and his Maker. Pleasure is horizontal; it reach­ es from man to man. Joy is vertical; it reaches from man to God. In our day and time we have come to believe that pleasure is all important We seek it at every point. We sit in front of our television sets blurry eyed seeking pleasure. We spend thousands of dollars oh entertainment seeking newer and bigger thrills and pleasure, thinking this will bring real enjoyment to our lives. We have enthroned the God of materialism thinking this will bring real pleasure and in a way it will but it is only momentary pleasure. The difference is pleasure is the moment and joy is eternal. Pleasure lasts just as long as the senses are stimulated. Joy gives a forever relationship. Not until we distinguish the difference between joy and pleasure can we,ever have real happiness. True joy does not depend on external circumstances for there can be joy even in sorrow. Many times health is required for pleasure but it is not required for joy and, surprisingly, there can! even be joy in death. If a person is a Christian and understands that he has a better life to {look forward to, then there can be an internal joy even in the presence of dath.

Does it make any sense to buy a new water heater before the old one leaks? We can think of four good reasons. First, if your water heater is over ten years old, you're probably at the edge of needing a new one. One-that'? :. rhore efficient. There's been a lot of improvements made in the last decade! '] • v Second, if your family has grown, chances are . good that you've outgrown the capacity of-your old water heater and could use a larger one. third, if you have to wait around for your water to heat you need one with a "quicker recovery- You use lots more hot water today than you use to! •' • - Last, it makes sense to buy a new water heater if your old one is not gas and is costing too much •to operate.
