Next Sunday is Mother's Day. I It's a day when flowers and gifts at"e given to Mother and we'll a'll dd ; a little thinking abbut what , pur Mom has ^meant to us in the past, and if' we are fortunate enough to still have her with us, 'we; can tell her so in person. . ' * * . 1 * ' Some of us are privileged io observe Mother's Day from both sides of the fence. We have our own mothers to honor and we are mothers ourselves, This \ is a \ highly satisfactory state of af- 1 fairs for the time when we appreciate Mother most, often does not come until we have children ; of our own. Then we can speak With-more sympathy and gratitude about the things, big and little, that she did for us in rearing us to adulthood. And we don't' wonder so much that she made a few little mistakes as we marvel at the fact that she managed to live through it at all. • . * * * I have my Mother's 'Day celebration all planned. I'm going to sleep late in the morning >and when I awake I'll slip into that glamorous new housecoat someone is going .to give me. Daddy and the kids will bring me breakfast in bed. The eggs will be just right,- the bacon crisp and the 'orange juice properly iced. When I get around to going out in the kitchen I'll find the dishes all washed and everything as neat as a pin. Father will accompany us r to church and the kids will be nicely turned out without my so , much as sewing • on a button, 'C.urling a lock or polishing a shoe. We'll have dinner at a restaurant DAVIS Colorful Red COWBOY BANDANNA and our fellow diners will marvel at our ybunister's beautiful table 1 manners. The remainder bf the day will be spent reading and resting with the family gratifyihg my slightest wish. There'll be' no cjuarellinj^and they'll &\l express, in flbwery teems, just how. rnucli I mean to them. Who do I think I'm kidding? *, It doesn't hurl Io dream a little/ but I know'that in reality er's Day^ at .our house will ^go quite differently. It's pretty, apt to "be just a normal day—very hectic. Take -today, for, instance. It -was, normal; everything was all fouled up. It wasn't Mother's Day but it was a day'in the'life of one Mamma.. ' .•••'• •*•',• » I awakened Io the soothing sounds ,ol little .ArbidfiS' shrieking in the kitchen. They; were' getting their own breakfast -and, they were fighting over wh'd )Was to get the. last individual.' pack of Sugar Corn. Pops.-1 staggered into the fray -ahd ; found'thai'-they had been•>making popsickles,,by^ freezing orange juice. They'd spip led it' all -over the refrigerator while testing to 'see .if they were done. All the cupboard doors were open.and Wienie was licking ,V" the spilled milk from the'fib" She keeps quite well-no.urisr, that way. * * * . ' ..-' One hour and several free-for- alls later, the eldest two mounted their bikes and were off to school. •Jeanie went outside to see what mischief she could -.^remote With the neighborhood' small-fry. Blessed peace descended and I tackled the ironing—the second .big basketful this week. The quiet, was. short-lived for Jeahie and company returned arid started to .play Beauty Parlor in the bathroom. Business was interrupted .by an old dross Mamma who objected to nail floor.. . polish decorating' the ' Fri., and Monday ii'mit 2 to * Customer Each You'll wan* o couple''of these cheery Bandannos for your own Junior Cowboy or Cowgirl They're bright red with attractive bucking bronco and corral design in gay contrasting colors.

Buy today ot this special low price DAVIS PAINT ASSOCIATE STORE Mr. & Mrs. Bill Amon Toward noon there .was'the food'to be packed for Bill's week r end camping trip with the Boy Scouts—about a ton of bread-ancl- butter, fruit and knick-knacks, to, supplement the main fare provided by the Troop.'Although Bill is a very inexperienced camper, I'm not worrying about him for he's in. good hands. But if I know our son, he'll eat all the potato chips, orangos and candy the Ih'Sl night and be oh slim rations; for the rest of -the outing. • '•;.', \•••. In ihe afternoon'I went to school. A good mother always attends every function in which'her child participates unless.she has den attack of rigor'mortis,, a broken leg or a case of leprosy: Today it was Mary Ann's .third • grade who showed us what they have been learning and the trip was both, enjoyable and profitably. Home again and a business call from a night-crawler customer. You didn't know that counting worms is a part of being a moth" er? I didn't either,,but a promise is a promise and I committed my.- self to tending Bill's worm bus-, iness while he's camping. Hjs two biggest orders to data have been for 10 dbzen each. Both times Bill was not at home. Guess who got to do the counting. Mary Ann was invited to spend the weekend with Marcia on the farm. We scurried around to find clean clothes. 4eanfe felt left out at this development «* She in. Wted- Charlotte J0 4 |«.-fo<?? Srtt &vih>ftfdht ftrelt.

Today it was the groceries that didn't get bought, the May Bas kets to be made for the children to give and I fully meant, to wash my haif. Thank goodnessj there's always tomorrow. * * *. Tomorrow is a wonderful wpr'd. 1'Ve always a great many things saved-up for that day. Tomorrow -i-1 great many of them hence*-* is when I'm going to have my ideal Mother's Day. By that time, I'll be the sort of saintly creature spoken 'of in'the sentiments. On Mother's 'Day cards. My hands Will be folded like Whistler's Mother instead of plunged elbow- deep in the dishwater and I hope by that time' to convince somebody that, "Mother knows best." The children will speak of me as their, "angel niother" instead-of yelling at me, "Hey, Ma!" Our youngsters will be like Cornelia's kids. She spoke of them as "heV little jewels." Right now, Ours are' more like diamonds in the rough. When this tomorrow comes, if I should live so long, I'll be rid of my bad habits, my patience will be infinite and I'll be very worthy of the high' title of, "Mother!" * * * ! This version of tomorrow has very little chance of coming true. If by some wild stretch of likelihood it ever should, I don't think I'd like it! I strongly suspect I'd look back to this time I'm .living through right now and call them, the best years of my life. .-• * * » Being a mother is a small miracle and most of us appreciate the fact when we can take time out from the rlnties involved. I'm glad its an every-day miracle, though, sb you and-I can get in on it. Most of us take quite seriously the joys and responsibilities of motherhood but it's a little difficult to keep our. halos polished and our wings neatly plucked and still do the wiping up, the running after and the setting things straight connected with rearing a family. .. * • * * A couple of weeks ago.
