FOX WARREN, Pa. (AP) — One of the most formidable problems to beset suburbia is the dilemma of the babysitter. After the initial trial and torment of paying for the ad in the newspaper, the. countless phone calls or letters in answer and the interviews with and without the children, perhaps you have settled for a kindly, grandmotherly type who assures you she will do her best. Naturally, the children adore her, since anyone even faintly reminiscent of Grandma rates tops in their book. Then begins the series of traumatic experiences from which you may never recover. Time to Ponder Monday dawns, bright and early. It is Club Day, Wash Day and also Cleaning-up-after-the weekend Day. The alarm rings at 7 and you rise up, cheerful and fresh. Then you give the children their breakfast and ponder. If you're like me, there is only one of the bright-eyed darlings to be entrusted to the local school system, and that for a half a day only. The other two are underfoot. After consigning the children to the playroom (if you're lucky enough to have one) and the first batch of laundry to the washer, you are able to sit down to that! second cup of coffee and reflect on the day's strategy. Burst of Energy It will be really necessary to give the house a thorough cleaning; after all, you don't want to have, that lived-in look with the sitter coming. The kitchen floor will have to be swept at least, and the windows on the storm doors will have to be washed. . . Suddenly you notice it's 10:30 and nothing done I The whirlwind energy displayed by the housewife on sitter-d a y would do a vitamin manufacturer's heart good. At last,, floor's swept, the furniture shining, the clothes neatly folded and p u t away. Our heroine prepares lunch for the family. . Oldest son is now home from school and is proceeding to strew the hall and bedroom with assorted clothes, boots, scarves and mittens. Husband is due for nis 20-minute lunch "hour" and the soup has begun to boil over on the stove. Worked Out System Lunch having been consumed in this congenial and restful atmosphere, it is now time to stash the dishes in the dishwasher (Oh joy of possession) and begin to dress for the Club. In our town Club means hat and also gloves. . . The system I've worked out by trial, tribulation and error is to begin by getting half - dressed, then, wearing a housecoat, wash the children and supervise their changing clothes. It is necessary, it seems, for them to be spotless when the sitter arrives so that they will make a favorable impression on the good woman. Then Mrs. J. S. Pence Is Hostess to Past Presidents' Circle Members of the Past Presidents' Circle of Grand International Auxiliary to the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers were entertained at a 1 'clock luncheon Tuesday afternoon at the Friendly Cafe with Mrs. J.

The children go flying to answer and you are allowed to finish lining the other eye alone. The pleasant, motherly creature belowstairs assures you in a hearty bellow that "everything will be just fine," and mentally you go over the checklist; house cleaned, floor swept, too bad I didn't get the windows cleaned, cookies for the boys on the countertop, tea and tranquilizers handy for the sitter. . .

A firm known for its suntan aids has devised a series of easy exercises done with a rope to help you shape up for summer togs. Here is one: Fold your rope in quarters. Assume a sitting position with legs together and knees straight. Your toes should be turned up and kept that way. Raise your arms over your head (upper), holding the rope taut. With your arms held straight (center), reach out over your feet with the rope. Continue to reach forward (lower), with your head down between your arms. Keep the elbows straight and scoot your hands on the floor. Try to hold the rope taut. Return to starting position with the rope over your head. Repeat the exercise slowly at least 10 times. As with most exercises, it is the daily routine that makes the difference. READ THE CLASSIFIEDS! For the Thin Ones Any woman who isn't pencil-slim should avoid a two-piece swimsuit.
