By KEN FLYNN Fun for the entire family is the theme of the City'; new recreation centers, according to Park and Recreation Director Bryce Lammert.

It's these little things that grind away at women's nerves while *· nations topple and people starve. My gripe is smoking at the :aWe. I can put up wkh cigaret smoking, Ann, though I don't smoke, thank heaven. But my msband's smoking at the table, even before I put the dinner on he table, is driving me wild. The smell of the cigaret smoke spoils one's appetite for a meal 'I bought some ice cream for us all,' he explained, didn't want any." ' M o m m y Mrs. Carrol!, the Strout article continued, "For the nation, 68 out of each 1000 workers now want jobs and can't get them. That's for the statistic. But unemployment is human beings." This kind of thing makes a heart ache for his fellow man, but it is also a fact that the fortitude of all the Mrs. Cu-rrys is what h e l p e d make America great -- not the soft Jiving of today.

When Wendell Bradley, a reporter from the Washington Post called on the Robert Curry family at Hagerstown, Mrs. Curry sent her 10-year-old son upstairs to get the light bulb. She put it in the table lamp in the living room, the only bulb in the house. "Mrs. Curry hasn't been eating lunch since November when her husband lost his job. 'It's easy once you get used to it,' she said. Fou-r of the five children played around her as she talked to the he dinner plate after he has visitors. Did the' children get inished. Sometimes, the chil-j three meals a day? 'the ones that 'go to school do,' she said. The smaller ones at home get breakfast- and maybe a slice of bread and jelly at noon. For dinner there are fried potatoes and bean soup one night; perhaps cabbage, the next. 'I've always had something for dinner,' she said. " 'Mommy doesn't eat most of the time,' observed Belinda, 9, from tne floor. She spoke cas- ucally without stressing the matter.
