One of the most annoying nonfatal ailments known to mankind must be Insomnia. I say this after only one sleepless night with the firm knowledge that countless thousands spend night after night tossing and turning. It's not the first time I've been afflicted with sleeplessness; but, it is. the, first time; I have lain awake without some perfectly logical excuse for doing so. . 1 no aches no pains, nothing to worry me, particularly. 1. had only my normal quota of coffee and my/conscience wasn't nagging me any more than msual, ; ' 1 • . V ' '• * > * do you do when you can't sleep? Count sheep, practice relaxing, each muscle separately until you drop off? I tried those and they didn't Work. Neither did my old (stand-by of planning lowdoSt mdals 'for .an orphahge. (Well, that's no nuttier than lots of sleep inducing schemes!) ] got up and read a while, but since I'd been reading for three hours before I retired, that "didn't work so well. I thought of taking a warm bath,, but I knew that if I did all three ' kids would think morning had come and cheerfully arise to meet the new day ahead. Finally I resigned my self to listening to night sounds chief of which was a magriificen duet— -Wienis and Father snor ing with all stops pulled out • • * » To Retire From Teaching Career Ntfw, snoring can be quite interesting to listen to 'as long as you are staying awake anyway. Snoring has even been the subject of .extensive research by some highly scientific organization or other. I had a nice clipping on the report of their findings but when I started digging through the debris on my desk to find it, it had gone the way so many things do around here — -completely disappeared. It's prob- lably just as well, for, as I remember it, the article proved .beyond a doubt that women are much more addicted to snoring than. men areh . \» • .. • Husbands must be much more chivalrous than we gals give them credit for, because although I've heard many a hen party discussing husband's snoring haoits I have yet to hear a man admit publicly that his wife snored. Maybe they are afraid' it will make the little woman sound less , ' feminine and thus • detract from - hubby's role as the great, big ti masculinei'protector. y. ' . .•- .-•• ..» y , . * " ' It seems to me that the princi- " pals in some of these scandalous "'divorce cases we are always reading about in the newspapers are passing up a good retort when they ignore snoring. When the wife in the case charges crue .and inhuman treatment, infidelity - and non-support, the husband, i "he wanted to be real mean should just come back with a ','- statement, in long legal terms, - saying, "She Snores!" That would " be the unkindest cut of all. Lots more devastating than countercharges of child neglect, infidelity, extravagance or even drunk- eness. I don't know how we got on the subject of snoring. There was ' nothing farther from my mind when I sat down to the typewriter tonight. I fully meant to discuss the clipping I was looking for last week when I was writing the column on the changes in women's fashions. I found it this week and its from My America by Harry Boyd in the Sioux City Journal. It was sent to me, with hilarious comments on the margins, by Betty Vmson of Rock Rapids and it was written long before Dior thought up his H-Look. m Mr Boyd discusses the prediction by some French sociologists that, U A new type of woman, young, boyish and hot-eyed, will supplant the bosomy pinup girl who P has dominated the postwar • decade." Mr Boyd says Anfc of these sociologists want to bet.' Betty says, "The only time I ever : get "hot eyes" is when I open the oven door to see what s cook' °Mr Boyd is a fellow who knows -* what he likes and, he says, 1 notice a good many other men seem tcragree.» He can get along * without any new types of women : because the old-fashioned model " that was good enough for his ' forefathers, including Adam, is "." good enough for hirn. • Mr Boyd calls the fashions of ' the twenties? "brief, flights from ^ sanity" and since this is predom- *• inatey what Mr Dior « advocat- " ing I think we'd do well to heed " the Boyd angle when he ^ays, " "Straight Lines and sharp angles •" were the order of the day. iney * filled out quickly when fash.on: able girls observed that non-con- lormists could be comtortaWj bulev and popular to boot. Ana, " "_fhe curved line is still woman's most dependable offensive • weapon ^and its renunciation is ' unlikely." f f '' WO Td^?ot^Sln!l C more useful purposes „. The only gimmick that ever eally did any thing for the natural female figure is the high eel to prop it up on its toes." *-<t '* * I don't doubt that the natural ook is-still preferred over, the i-Look and what the gals do in he line of artificial, aids-^cos metics, foundation garments, pad dings etc.—is all to the good' il we can get away, with it. Every woman gets sick of her type every how and then and an irrepressible urge to change it hits us. If we can do this and stil have the fellows think we are •completely natural", what they don't know won't hurt them. ( * - * • *, There is' sadness in bur neigh borhood this evening for Skippy John and Jimmy Best's dog, me with a fatal accident. The drive of the car that hit him wasn't at fault nor as anyone else, bu* the. passing of a beloved pet touches-us all. There were tears shed at our'house, top, and the thing that seemed most pathetic was the way the little dog wagged his tail at the sight "of tys master just before he died, f * » * ' :. S.-' I had a couple of phone calls recently asking for the Kosher Dill pickle, recipe I published-last year. It's Wava Woodward's recipe and it's by far the,best dill pickle I've tried. I made 17 quarts last year and they were gone long before Christmas so this year 'm going to make oodles more, •lere's the recipe: . 13 cups water 1 cup vinegar 1 cup salt garlic cloves dill Wash cucumbers thoroughly GRACE JONES Miss 6r&ce Jones of LeMars and this is solely for'the records- is "retiring" from active teaching Service this year. To Miss Jones retirement means a varia tion in her activities. Sh,e will be teaching in church chools and helping with various routK and* children's activities; he is writing a "Childhood" ser- es to show that children need more creative play. 'Her own and pack in sterilized jars. Ada . about two heads of dill to each " ar and a clove "or t\vo 'Of garlic. Bring the virtegar, water, salt brine to a boil, pour over', the cucumbers and seal. Last year . ! made some of these without the garlic just in case some of us wouldn't like it and they were good, but the real Kosher ones are by far the favorites. The . recipe makes about seven quarts depending upon how many cu cumbers you can pack into a jar GRACE * Algona Soldit, Finishes Course FORT RILEY, KAN. — P f c. Dbhald D.
